First animes I ever watched were Starzinger (Swe dub), Balatack (Swe dub). I have also watched some episodes of Pokémon, Digimon, Beyblade and Sailor Moon, due to the fact that they were aired on mornings before school.
Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Boondocks where both big reasons why I started to watch anime again, after avoiding it for a long time.
The two first anime I watched where Afro Samurai and Samurai Champloo, two animes with a Hip-Hop soundtrack (one by Wu-Tang Clans RZA and one by Nujabes).
I then thanks to Swedish channel ZTV got exposed to many other anime series like: Full Metal Alchemist, Ergo Proxy, Paranoia Agent.
I later started watching shonen series like Bleach and Naruto and the rest of my Anime history is seen on my list. =)
I got interested in reading manga mainly due to wanting to see how the Ulquiorra Ciffer vs. Ichigo Kurosaki battle would end and I've continued to read it since then.
I also started reading Naruto arround the same time.
