I’m not asking which anime, but more of the circumstances behind you becoming a fan. I know for a lot of people that was Toonami, but I also know there are probably other stories out there.
While I watched Toonami I can’t say that’s what got me into anime. It was actually back in 2011 when I was recovering from knee surgery. I was stuck in bed and my brother passed me his netflix account. My mother and brother had already been fans for a long time, so I figured why not give it a shot. I didn’t really care for it right away, mostly because I wasn’t watching the best series at first. Once I did start to watch shows like the original Fullmetal Alchemist I realized the potential anime had.
I guess I’ve always watched anime when I was a kid with Pokémon and Yu-Gi-OH, but I didn’t even know I was watching anime until I was in middle school when someone I met at school was telling me about them in middle school. Then she introduced me to anime like Bleach and Fruits Basket and from then on I’ve become hooked.
