I don't know if this is a repeat topic, it could be. But I was talking to someone, and reminiscing when I got into anime a couple years before Naruto started airing, so late 90's. And I asked my friend what was the first anime that he ever saw. He replied, "it was Elfen Leid and you showed it to me." And I was like ohhhh, I'm sorry. Those were the good ol'days when anime titties were not censored. Hahahahaha ! So anyone else have a story of an anime they showed someone for the first time that got them hooked?

Got my bro into Code Geass a year or two ago... He's still not a very avid anime-watcher, though. Still needs some reforming.

Naruto, a friend hooked me in with it, so I suggested it as a good starter anime for my friends, and I have a lot more hardcore watchers now

Mirai Nikki.

I think the scene at the end of the first episode did it for him.

The original Fullmetal Alchemist anime. My friend really liked it. Truth be told, they already watched anime from time to time. Here's the amazing thing. Most of their family (who weren't anime watchers as far as I know) wound up loving it too.

I got two of my classmates hooked on Soul Eater. Later, I introduced them to Higurashi, but only one of them watched it all the way through (the other thought it was boring). Through those, they started getting into anime in general. They haven't seen many anime, but the number that they've seen is slowly increasing. One of them also reads manga.

Right now, I'm watching Angel Beats and Durarara with one of them and Ao no Exorcist and Madoka Magica with the other. They're both really enjoying them.
Not related to anime, but I converted them both to bronies, too

Also, I seem to have gotten my younger step siblings into anime. I often bring over anime DVDs to watch and they would sometimes watch them with me. I brought over My Neighbour Totoro, The Cat Returns and Arrietty, and they both really enjoyed them, but they didn't really get into anime in general until I brought Ouran HSHC over. One of them is reading the manga, and they're both rewatching the anime on ABC3 right now. The other day, they asked me to write a list of anime they might like, and I did.
So yeah. I'm not even too sure how it happened, really XD
