This grid showing anime through the ages starting in the 60's with Uran-chan from Astro Boy Atom and ending just before 2010 with CC from Code Geass. How many of these titles can you recognize?

The first anime I watched was in the 80's when I was still living in the UK - Battle Of The Planets which was also known as G-Force and in Japan known as Gatchaman.


I was still young at the time and was not of an age to recognize that it was a Japanese production - was dubbed into English.

I ask my Japanese friends and they say the same - when they were young and watched Tom n Jerry - they didn't know that it was not Japanese.

The first anime that I watched and recognised it as being Japanese was Super Dimension Fortress Macross - Do You Remember Love.
I actually watched a cantonese dubbed VHS version that I picked up in Chinatown London.

What is the first anime you remember watching?


The animation, story, music and cute girls completely captured my soul and together with the Sega Megadrive, I started my journey to self study Japanese so that I could understand what I was watching. You can read the rest of the journey here.

And here are the lads - my fave from this bunch is Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop and Yagami Light from Death Note.
I was not happy with what happened to Light - to me he was justice! Although his treatment of loved ones and family members was questionable ^^; (all worded to try not to give spoilers ^^;)

What was the first Japanese anime you watched? Which anime era do you prefer?
Has Japanese anime inspired to do something that has altered the direction of your life?
