    Hmm that's a good point there. Though, as far as I know, it's not a film that's generally classified as being anime, I've never been quite sure as to why it shouldn't be - although I'm sure there's a good reason for that.

    i used to watch the very old school Astro Boy, Conan: The kid of the future, Mazinger Z and Robotech besides some old dramaish animes. But what realy introduced me to the full extent of anime was without a doubt Akira and Vampire Hunter D

    I used to watch Toonami in its hayday.... I didn't know too much about stuff from Japan. I used to be a big fan of DBZ. But I think Cowboy Bebop had the biggest influence on my tastes.

    The first thing on English TV which was anime that I knew of was Pokemon, but I didn't like the series, I was more in tune with the games. Though I loved Dragonball Z, I don't know anyone who didn't.

    I had always heard of anime in video game magazines. But when I was about 9, I remember Sci Fi channel having an animation fest. They said it was anime. So my first anime I saw was Dominion Tank Police (which I thought was the coolest) and the next night, I saw Project Ako.

    My first anime would be Sailor Moon and Pokemon. I had seen Sailor Moon and some other old animes before, but only got to know they were anime about the time Pokemon was aired.

    my first anime was Sailor Moon.But I didn't really know that it was classified as anime then so,I guess Cowboy Bebop would be my first.It's still my favorite to this day.

    Captain Harlock, at the end of the 80s. I'm from the former Soviet Republic of Moldova, and it was the period when all the western films were breaking thru over the Iron Curtain. After the long bore of Soviet television, it was like another planet, mindblowing, it influenced even our dreams!

    Princess Mononoke. It was the first one I knew it was anime. But I saw other stuff before (Pokemon as example) that just didn't knew it was called like that.

    Probably Dragon ball or Sailor Moon. Or Saint Seiya.

    The first anime I officially knew was anime was the Tenchi Muyo move, Tenchi Muyo in Love. You know, the one where they all time-travel to the seventies and such. It aired on the SciFi channel back in the day when SciFi was still of (dubious) quality, and it forever changed my worldview on animation. After that came Yuu Yuu Hakusho, Yotoden, Ronin Warriors... All classics, and all truly great. But Tenchi will always have a place in my bitter, withered heart. ^^
    Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

    What an excellent topic! It's had a consistent and long life, it seems.

    Anyway, the anime that got me hooked was Yakitate!! Japan. Previous to Yakitate!! Japan, I couldn't really get into anime for several reasons, one being that I had only ever heard about the ones that focus on grandiose fighting scenes. I'm really not into that type of anime, although I will put up with it if it's good for the plot.

    Yakitate!! Japan. Funny, funny show.

    Some of the staff who worked on The Last Unicorn later went on to work for Studio Ghibli, so maybe that's how the person who suggested that got confused, but it was made by American and British production companies and based on a (fantastic) novel by an American writer.

    Ah, that explains things. I mistakenly thought before that the film was produced by a Japanese company. Many thanks for pointing that out.

    My first anime that I knew was anime would be Sailor Moon. But... the first actual anime that I've ever watched as a little kid would be Noozles. Had no idea that that was Japanese made until I got older.
