Yeah I TRIED but the lightbulb just won't come on! (She doesn't understand why you must read from right to left or that you start from the back...sheesh. So I tried anime, and she's just not interested.) It's kinda sad, cus none of my girl OR guy friends are into manga or anime.

It is kinda kewl though when we watch a "Based in Japan" type movie, and I can understand some of what the people are saying. (For example this past weekend we watched The Grudge II, boring movie btw, and I could understand some of the Japanese. Pretty kewl)

Hmm... i tried to entice them to watch anime or read manga. If I can't do it the first try, I usually just give up. It's no use. Just the same with banging my head on a brick wall.

yeah.. this happens to me most of the time.. about 50% of my friends are sooo serious in life (others are preoccupied with something) that they don't have time watching anime or reading manga.. (the simple joys of life).. and there are times that they use the term "cartoons" instead of "anime".. (i usually get mad when they do that..) and i end up explaining what anime is and how much happiness it brings me..

good thing though, i succeeded in convincing like half of them..

that's a already a great achievement for someone like me (who has weak convincing powers, as they say..)

xD we all used to engage into long conversations trying to find explanations for example: How ichigo defeat Zaraki? and stuff like that xD by the way we still have found no answer to that.

i guess im the opposite, i hate it when people want to watch anime with me, id rather crack up by myself. its also really annoying if they don't get it and keep asking questions, it makes me want to take them back to the first episode.
