Title: What was your first anime?
Post by: Icelilly on August 13, 2007, 05:32:13 pm
This part of the board is looking a little dead so why not a little discussion to get the place going again? ^^

My first anime was Sailor Moon. I was about 4 when it came out. X3 I'm still loving it to this day. ^.^

The first anime I watched was a series called Candy Candy (In Spain, dubbed to spanish). I think it was in 1985/86.  The anime that got me hooked on anime was a movie called Windaria, which I watched the following year. The first anime I watched undubbed was Akira, this was much later, in 1994.

Pokemon was my second anime. XD Again, still watching it to this day. ^.^

DNAngel is pretty good! I just read a few of the manga books and it's not all that bad. ^^

I was around 8 when I watched Ginga Nagareboshi Gin, dubbed in finnish.
Watched as well Totoro and Porco Rosso.

Still TV anime, vs what you get online/dvd is fail. tho it still surprizes me the aired FMA in the US, that show is pretty messed up.

Yea, I actually like the japanese version of haruhi, its got more humour to it...

Too bad its only 15 episodes, but I like watching em in different orders, liek a "choose your own story" sorta thing.

Personaly I like the english version better.  Im a westerner, western humor i understand better. if a sub titler has to explain a joke in notes above the screen then Im okay without it.  Plus, I think they cast the characters pretty good, none of the usual annoying claw my ears off voices.

Totoro was my first anime, followed by Sailor Moon and later Robotech.
At least I think those are the first ones, I've seen so many that I can't remember. ;138
Title: What was your first anime?
Post by: IanDanKilmaster on October 09, 2007, 05:22:42 am
My first was probably Akira, the very first time it aired on Sci-Fi channel, many many moons ago.  According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sci_Fi_Channel_%28United_States%29#Anime) (which we all know is the end-all, be-all bastion of accurate knowledge), the original anime programming on Sci-Fi started in the 1990s.  So I'm thinking 1994, 'cos that year sticks out the most to me.  As far as actual serial anime goes, Sailor Moon was probably my first, with DBZ being a a very close second.  Of course, I didn't get a steady diet of anime from that date onward, in fact, I didn't get a chance to start watching anime on a regular basis until a few years back.

It's kind of embarrassing to admit to this, but the main reason I remember Akira as my first is because it just scared the hell outta me when I first saw it (yeah, my wild animation led to easy frights).  Funny watching it now and thinking "I was 8 freakin' years old!  How the hell did I find this scary?!" -__-'

HUmm if you count the old shows like that robotech probobly was my first, or thundercats but i didnt really watch it much (i think it sucked personaly...)   However like I stated before, my first REAL anime was Iria: the Zerim animation   on sci fi channels saturday morning anime.. or it may have been their anime week where they played anime movies every day.  i think they have stopped that...

So i guess i had my anime cherry popped twice. Once by the saturday morning cartoons type, and one by the serious buisness anime.

Post by: U-Know on November 06, 2007, 10:06:19 pm
Probably DBZ or Evangelion. This was way back and I was little and skimmed through the channels. All I remember was a little bit of DBZ and a few hazy scenes of Eva.

Post by: Toki on March 11, 2008, 04:12:05 pm
My first anime was Ranma 1/2 when I was eight... I never watched television, and I was so excited when I was twelve and I got to stay in a house with cable. But I was so disapointed with it all, and I've hated dubs ever since...

Also, I watched Record of Lodoss War, Macross Plus, Devil Hunter Yoko and Love Godess Rei Rei. Ranma was my favorite though. I still have the first season memorized.

I have 2 discs of ovas too.. but I havent seen the movie ;_; and Ive also got about 25 of the books...

Im a big ranma fan, but for good reasons XD  I liked any show ive seen where a guy turns into a girl by magic or other means :P
Title: What was your first anime?
Post by: Techno the fox on March 12, 2008, 06:17:35 am
I'd like to add Pokemon and the Digimon series 1.

Now, I don't really have a preference between Japanese with Subtitles and English dubs. As long as the dubs aren't too bad.

...Like Osaka who suddenly aquired a southern accent...

I haven't really seen any of the Ranma series, but I have read the Manga.
Have any of you by chance read a manga called "Tuxedo Jin"?

Also, Some of the Sonic the hedgehog based animes are good.
"Adventures of Sonic the hedgehog" Aka AOSTH is pretty good in a Saturday morning cartoon style. Like looney tunes.

But if you're going to watch Sonic X, I recomend the japanese version.
Title: What was your first anime?
Post by: Toki on March 12, 2008, 08:55:14 am
Well, in Azumanga Daioh, she speaks with an osakan dialect, which is more... like a new yorkers dialect, but southern is more noticable so thats how they dubbed it. I can understaaand that. I just don't like american dubs... except Porco Rosso. Disney dubs are really good... o.0 おé,ªé­"ã--てすã,,ませã,"が

Added after 4 minutes:

Captain-san, there are two movies! Maybe even three, but I'm not completely for sure, I've only seen two ;-; The movies are really good. I used to have a big crush on ranma, cuz he could turn into a girl. BUT IT WAS OKAY BECAUSE HE WUZ STILL A GUY. RITE? Rite o-o; Another more recent anime where a guy gets turned into a girl is Kashi Mashi, it's so cute *-* I love it so much. Kyaa.

I seen that one, i found it kinda sad too.    But it was good.  :P  
another good one kinda like that ive seen recently was Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru.  He didnt actually turn into a girl, but he dressed like one and went to an all girls school, and became the most popular girl in school X3  very good, you must see it.

Then we could use it for great medical advancements...

First conscious anime would be Vampire Hunter D.

OMG!!!
Did you see how hard they raped the title when they translated it into Dutch?! Man, Dutch is LAME!

Oh, eehm, sorry for bashing my native language before thanking you for the link...
It looks good. :D I'll go watch it ( i do hope that it's not licensed yet, because the nearest anime/manga store is 30 miles away and it's REALLY small, so they probably wouldn't have it right there)...

Everything sucks when dubbed.

Damn near everything, at least.

Some things, however, suck so much they become OH HILARITY.

Also, doesn't everything sound awfully awkward when translated into your native language, especially from Japanese...?

Although I must say this thread is strange because official thread "your introduction to anime" already exists here:

http://www.ostan-collections.net/topic-169.html

...but I want to comment here because I want to answer to NejinOniwa and Toki who have a question:

Quote from: "NejinOniwa"Ok, off-topicness detected.

To return a bit, any of you guys know any viking Animu? I's detected shortage much, ef.


Quote from: "Toki"Viking anime... viking anime... Record of Lodoss War almost... not really. I don't remember. o.o It's been a while.


As I said in the other thread there is an interesting Anime of 1974 that in Italy it is named "Vicky il Vichingo" and original name was "Chîsana baikingu Bikke" [EDIT]original german name is "Wickie" [/EDIT] and it is a co-production of Austria + Germany + Japan.

I believe it should be japanese animation while characters are german...

I remember it because it was the first japanese anime in Italy, and it is historically remebered for that.

I saw it and was quite good (even if a bit linear in the plot) and sure aimed at child audience.



Also I remember a Viking movie from TOEI, in which Hayao Miyazaki realized the Character Design.

Film was a flop in Japan, and sure it is very very very SAAAAD plot movie,  But Miyazaki was so good that he became very respected and gained many positions in TOEI management...

Movie was called in Italy with various names, because it was considered sad and violent and it presented a very lame editing of the scenes of the story (european cuts? american cuts? censorship cuts?), and marketing tried to change its name to enhance its poor appeal.

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_grande_avventura_del_piccolo_principe_Valiant


I don't know if there are english version (but sure there should be one... At least now that Miyazaki has become famous, a modern version of this movie then it should had been re-mastered)...

Name of this film is "La grande avventura del piccolo principe Valiant" / "Il segreto della spada del sole" / Horus â€" Principe del Sole, original name is "Taiyo no ÅŒji - Horusu no daiboken".

So if you are searching for Vikings related anime now you know what to search for...

You can search for an entire serial cartoon, and also you can search for a movie...


[EDIT]

OK from articles of Wikipedia in my country I extended the search and I reached the english names and versions of both these anime...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicky_the_Viking.


(YAY! I'M DA MAN!  :smoke: I knew it was original european character design... The article confirmed it...  ;010 )

Also I discovered that in Italy there are selling DVDs of Vicky...

Here this link brings you to the italian Opening theme from DVD:

http://video.libero.it/app/play?id=45fd9b0cc6d55f5d5f838cbfc3184a25

Here are some images:

(http://www.cliccarimini.it/palinstorici/teleancora/vicky.gif)

(http://www.prima-tv.it/immagini_schede/vicky.JPG)


As being orignally a german cartoon, I bet that Vicky should be famous in Germany too, in the seventies...

So it is more logical that there should exists also a german release of DVDs.
Also, German are famous to be precise, and very professional, so I hope that german version should feature multi-language soundtrakcs (german, english, japanese)...

Check for it on E-Bay or Amazon...

Also I found that american name of Prince Valiant/Horus is this:

"Little Norse Prince Valiant"...

Now check E-bay or Amazon or even the "Mule" for searching it, because it should be very very rare and I think it is not sold anymore...

Sorry, I could not subscribe your point of view...

Here in my country dubbing it is very professional, and often it reaches very high quality.

Unfortunately as here in Italy were dubbed more than 500 japanese cartoons, and many were imported in the seventies, there were an inflactioned market of anime, professional dubbers were used too often for real movies, and cartoons are considered just a market for childs, that it must receive no quality attention, and this lead to a certain number of lame dubs...

"Kimba the Lion" by Osamu Tezuka was sure LAME dubbed here in Italy.

I know it as Super Robot 28...

Here in my homeland it has been aired only the TV series of 1980 and not the original one of 1965...

Also the third and 4th series had been not buyed by local boadcast TVs.

http://digilander.libero.it/alcor99/Schede/SuperRobot28/SuperRobot28.htm

The italian title is Super Robot 28 Go, go, go!, the original name is Tetsujin 28-gou

The original 1965 Super Robot 28:

The remake of 1980:

A clone of Super Robot 28 is Giant Robot, born in 1967, with a very good OAV remake of 1992.

Giant Robot featured the magnificent character of Gin Rei:  ;010

Well, had i known about fan subs at the time, i prolly would have done better in the class.  But yes, we had Japanese, then again Seattle is where alot of import products get imported to the United States from. We have alot of Japanese and asian people here, prolly more then say california has mexicans... well prolly not, but we have alot. We have asian markets, there is a Japanese district in downtown Seattle, heck I cant remember of the top of my head but Seattle has a "sister city" in Japan. Our class even had exchange students.  Unfortunatly the only chance i get to use any Japanese is when I order and pick up my teriaki or when Im asking where the yakisoba sauce is in the market.

Tho, that reminds me. I have oppertunities to visit Japan here soon.  My sister in the USAF and my mom who she takes care of as a dependant are headed over to a base there for a few years. I think there are ways they can get cheap tickets for family to visit....  =_= i never got a cance while I was still in the USMC but in LA there were free military flights every wensday to japan, on a first come first serve basis.

Wow. .  Lesse, if I can remember right the first anime I saw, and that I remember enjoying, was an anime movie that had a female bounty hunter tracking an alien who could eat something, and make it into a monster. . . Her ship could talk, and I saw it back on the Scifi channel when it was -good- and not riddled with crappy shows and even worse movies.

Then after that it was Galaxy Express 999, and then ( my favorite ) Armitage the Third. It is the basis for my longest standing RP character!

Yes! That is it! Thank you so much for finding that for me! Now I must go ferreting around the Internet t00bz to find this and relive a small part of my childhood.

Do you remember them showing a live action movie based off of this? I blame that movie for giving me my utter bloodlust over Asian B movies that I have now. I can't remember if the movie was good or bad, but still.

there were two live action ones before the anime. The anime came after them but its a prequal to the live action. the live action ones were simply called Zeiram and Zeiram 2. Much the way The Red Specticals and Stray Dog both tie into Jin Roh

My first was Elfen Lied, and it's the reason I'm still watching anime today.  It was bloody brilliant!  The first time I watched it I had a marathon session and had it done in a whole day.  I then watched it again the next day, and the day after that.  I loved it.

Still to this day, it is the only anime that's made me cry.  I fell in love with Lucy/Nyu and I audibly whimpered at the end when I thought she'd died at the hands of the SAT squads.  I'm watching it again now for like the twentieth time and it still hasn't lost its ability to tug at my heartstrings.

I just got a Nyu wallscroll for my bedroom wall and I actually find myself gazing longingly into her eyes on regular occasions.  To paraphrase Tara from Buffy "I'm under her spell..."

Just hope she doesn't change to lucy at the most unexpected moment o_o
But yeah, I also love Elfen Lied, a litle bloody, but love it (still,caution must be exercise if any family member close by while watching). Though at the end of it, who is the women figure? It's as if the creator make us guessing the figure at the end is what we want.

Elfen Lied was acceptable, except the ending. It ruined it all. I mean, srsly. WHY SO GAINAX?

With Gainax I mean Gainax ending. I mean, seriously, I couldn't get a squid's ass out of that black hole of an ending, it was DEEP and GRIMDARK and GENERALLY SPEAKING I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL YOU'RE DOING WHAT'S THIS I DIDN'T EVEN so I in your roommate, if you know what I mean.

Well, apart from the ending it was pretty good - however, as with all too many things, that ruined it all for me, so no rewatch this side of the millenia for me.

My first anime was "Serial Experiment Lain" in 1999. I found it when, one day, I wanted some Winamp skins. I get one skin of this animes and ... I bought the VHS ( I didn't have a DVD reader at this time so ... ) to watched it. I love it ( even if the story is not the easiest to understand ).

o___o...... sailor moon was my first. ~^__^~

i remember getting up at 5 am on saturday when i was 5 yrs old just to watch it on the tv with the volume turned up to like, 4....<D any louder and me and sis would get yelled at. after it was over ghostbusters would be on. :3

after the series ended pokemon filled the void a little.....but then i discovered Cyborg009 (<33333) and everything was alright. untill that ended ;___;

Chobits. Saw my younger sister watching it a couple years back on Anime Network on Demand (shame I can't find it anymore on the iControl system... damn you, TWC!), so I decided to sit down and watch a few of the later episodes offered.

Then I found Youtube... and yeah, now I'm hooked on Spice and Wolf.

In my mind, I don't really consider (yet others I know do) shows like Naruto or Pokemon a real anime. It's been overly bastardized by everyone in the US.
Title: What was your first anime?
Post by: NejinOniwa on June 09, 2009, 05:08:03 pm
Well, frankly the "real" japanese versions of those two shows - and pretty much everything else rapekilled by 4shitz - are quite watchable. (personally I've pained myself through the Naruto fillers over one week, then proceeded to follow the somewhat acceptable actual plot; also watched ALL the Pokemon movies in japanese. First time I watched Movie 1 was a raw...damn that was hard. ^^)

Economy and Wolf is quite amusing at times...the only question I have is WHERETHEFUCKISMYSEASON2, lol. -w-;

Chobits...meh.
I never really fancied CLAMP very much. Somewhat excepted with Tsubasa Chronicles, but that's a bit...yeah, at times.
Title: What was your first anime?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on June 09, 2009, 09:45:59 pm
i like chobits. mah crazy of a sister has the entire series, both manga and anime. i have a chi plushie (actually one of my first anime plushies, she and inuyasha were my first, bought at the same time).

i hope Reborn! comes to the us. :3
Title: What was your first anime?
Post by: Seamore on June 11, 2009, 11:27:49 pm
Chobits...another clamp creation that I follow back then. Quite good if you ask me.

Btw nejin, if you follow Tsubasa Chronicles, you better follow xxxHolic too. Both of the two story are intertwined very close with each other. Not just because the story going at the same time, but there's much more.

Speaking of clamp, the only thing that sometime bugging is probably is their complicated relationship between character.
Title: What was your first anime?
Post by: NejinOniwa on June 12, 2009, 08:01:08 am
Like I said, I try to avoid most CLAMP things. I just follow Tsubasa because well, I got caught, and there ain't much to do about it. -.-

The first anime that I remember is Mazinger Z ( just some chapters. Because here in Mexico it wasn't totally transmited ).

After Mazinger I remember Speed Racer and Dragon Ball ( They were great ).

Welp get ready to google if your TOO young.

I THINK my first was either Astro boy or Tobor the 8th man, Can not leave Gigantor out of there either. Then there was Prince Planet, Kimba the White Lion, Jonny Cyper in Diminision Zero, Marine Boy and Speed Racer. They were on TV around the same time, courtesy of Wee Willie Webber's Cartoon Cartoon Club. Those were the days...  The days of Black and White anime since Kimba was the first full epispode anime. anything before that was not in color...

I think the first anime I ever watched, was Dragonball Z, and then I watched Card Captors, with Toradora! being the most recent.

Personally I think I'm going to watch Toradora again, as it was an awesome anime.

So you got your start watching "big kid anime" on Adult Swim, too? :D
