You could ways start your own anime club with the help of face book. My friend Mikey was really getting into anime and he noticed that there weren't any groups for people like that in our city, so he formed one himself and it just kept growing and growing! Now we have like 30+ members and we're working on a website and everything. We are even doing panels at the local conventions.


That awesome! And a great idea. Maybe I'll have to do that myself

That's called commitment. I respect that.



Thank you! We, along with the other members of our group, feel very strongly about making otaku guys and girls feel less alone. As otaku, we tend to feel isolated and it makes me kind of sad to think that way. That's why I always recommend joining these kinds of groups and going to conventions. It feels great to know there are actually a lot of people who share this interest. I mean, just look at how many members CrunchyRoll has!

I'm not considering myself as an adult.
But I am out of Highschool. I have been for a few months. All I have to go with are my old friends, and most of them are off to college. It is pretty hard to try and make new ones now that I don't really have my whole life established yet. All I have are my co-workers, but it's like those little friend that you talk to, but don't see outside of work.

I'll just chat with the old gang via facebook.

Do you guys watch a wide range of different genres of anime? Like say, going from Neon Genesis Evangelion to K-ON! or from Texhnolyze to Freezing? Also, I too agree with joining groups to meet people with similar interests. That way you can make more friends and potentially feel better.

Is it me, or do the people around you get more boring the older you get?

They are more likely to succumb to the mundane, that's for sure. Some of us never really want to grow up though, so we're more likely to notice when others have done just that. I personally think that whatever doesn't kill me, makes me stranger...and I'm quite content with that mindset.

Yes, I find it hard to make friends, but I didn't really have all that many friends in high school, either. I'm not very sociable in person, but you wouldn't guess that online. I speak better through text at a picture than I do through my voice to a face.

Yes, we actually do end up watching a lot of different things. We vote on an anime to watch at the meeting (we meet up once a week) and watch whichever one has the most votes and then watch the one with the least amount of votes the following week. Most recently we've watched Sword Art Online and Soul Eater. Both were a big hit with the members of the group. We usually watch about 4 episodes and then if the members like it, they continue watching on their own. It works out well and gives us more to talk about at the next meeting.


That sounds like a good set-up, glad it works out well. If you were wondering/curious about the anime I used for examples let me know, I can explain them to you if you want. Give a synopsis and what-not.

I try to watch a wide range of Anime with different elements that make up the stories and characters. There are a few genres that i always enjoy though.

I'm currently trying to get my girl more interested in anime, since I am trying to become more interested in some of her hobbies. Does anyone have suggestions of animes that you think a 23 yr old female would enjoy?

I've watched K-on! and loved it. Though I know of Neon Genesis, I've never really sat down to watch it. There so many new series coming out that I tend not to go back that far into "anime history". When I do go back to watch older series, it's usually to watch Samurai Champloo for the hundredth time. lol. Though recently I have been obsessing over old episode of Yugioh.

Both of us enjoy the mystery/crime genre. She's into films that take place in the early- mid 20th century. She'd like anything with a strong female lead character as well.

I know the feeling. You could try the Rebuild of Evangelion films, which are more recent. Then again, it's always good to watch the original also. Texhnolyze and Neon Genesis Evangelion are very dark shows while K-ON! is bubbly and cute and Freezing being action-packed and violent. Well, they're all violent in a sense really.

I suggest showing her some shojo. It's romantic and looks pretty. What girl wouldn't like that? Or if, like me, action and science fiction is more her thing, try Bleach or Naruto. Yes, they are considered shonen but both have emotional aspects that female viewers can enjoy and relate to.
I've recently started watching Blast of Tempest. I think girls can get into it because the boys are attractive and love for a girl plays a big part in the characters' motives, but there is also a good does of action and the fight scene are fantastic, so you can enjoy this one, too.
I hope this was helpful!

It really depends on the girl, but as a 23 year old female I can definitely give you some ideas of what I like. For me, I like love stories, not necessarily super dramatic or cliche, but anything with strong lead characters and a happy ending (for instance, I'm watching Say I Love You right now and loving it). Romantic comedies are fun too, Ouran High School Host Club would be a good example. At the same time, I love shows that guys like too like Cowboy Bebop and Full Metal Alchemist. Every girl is different, so I would just ask her what she likes, if I were you.
