Sorry if this has already been done before but I was interested in knowing in what Anime did you introduce your friends into and did they continue to watch anime or was it just a one time thing aka they didn't go for it.

I was introduced several friends to Ranma 1/2...Very awkward at first but they grew to like it despite some of the odd Japanese humor.

[Let's expand on this a little. In addition to the above, what are some of the things you introduce to your friends, or would like to. And why? --lorreen]

I was never successful in converting someone into liking anime.

The series I've tried with were Lucky Star and Death Note. Probably not the best choice of first anime to introduce to friends, now that I look back on it.

Anyway, if I ever have the chance to introduce an anime to someone again, I would use SAO. It's a straightforward and simple anime without many references to Japanese culture.

I used Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-Chan. They loved it because of the hilarious gore filled scenes. Some of them went to watch more anime on their own. Some only watch it with me.

I showed my friend Elfen Lied because he likes gore.

After that he began to watch more animes that I showed him and he became really interested in it. Now he watches anime almost everyday and even tries to get his other friends to watch anime too.

I got one friend into Death Note and lately I've got him hooked on Attack on Titan. I think next up is going to be SAO for him.

Another friend I had gotten into Death Note, and I also got him to watch Haruhi. He likes anime but doesn't have much of an attention span.

I tried so many times, sadly it didn't work.

2 liked naruto but they hated the idea of filler.

1 loved bleach, till they saw how many eps.

Another I tried death note, he refused. Then he tried getting me to watch it since he saw the live action. Claimed he got me into it, loved how I turned it around by spoiling the second film! The horror on his face when he worked out it was the same show I tried getting him to watch a month earlier!

Only success was my other friend, ironically the brother of the death note experiment, who only watches a few because of his partner. She even got me into a show I never watched. Gun x Sword!

Almost got a dozen or so to watch but ultimately it's always the same. They start, yet they forget it ever happened.

I managed to rally in quite a lot of my friends to watch Code Geass, but that was about it. But recently I've managed to drag them into watch Shingeki no Kyojin, so that's a start... I guess.

Well, my guyfriend originally just watched a bit of Bleach, and he loved it, so I showed him Fairy Tail ^_^ At first, he thought nothing could overcome Bleach but now he's as addicted to it as I am and that's saying something! Now, I've also got him hooked on Attack on Titan, our ultimate favourite!

The rest of my (girl)friends don't like it though, except for one who likes Ouran High School Host Club, because she's addicted to rom-coms
