The first Anime I saw was Little Neo in Slumberland when I was 4. And it was Dubbed. Then over the years I saw crap Anime dubbed on TV and I didn't even know it was Anime.
Then I saw Sailor Moon on USA and liked it. But no, its not my favorite. Slayers, Hajime no Ippo, CardCaptor Sakura, Princess Tutu, GTO and the Miyazaki movies are all my favorites.
But maybe, just maybe if you go by the fact that I've been playing games since I was three and consistently stick to nothing but GOOD games and as such, still stick to good Anime, THEN you might have something. How I always stuck to the good stuff since I was young and therefore stuck with it all my life.
