Every journey has to start with a first step. Recently, Funimation took the opportunity to ask their fans across Twitter just where they first got into anime and what series brought them into the medium. Funimation itself has certainly been responsible for numerous fans entering into the world of anime, licensing such legendary series as Dragon Ball, My Hero Academia, One Piece, and Yu Yu Hakusho to name a few. Whether it was through the Cartoon Network programming block of Toonami or by scouring the internet, its clear that anime has continued to expand its audience as the years have passed.
Funimation took to Twitter to get input from their legion of fans and received a ton of input with regards to how viewers had first been brought into the medium:
