My AFK friends mean more to me than almost anything else in the universe, and next to none of them like anime. That's fine with me.

I got into anime when I was like 8. Not sure if it was the Pokemon, Card Captor Sakura or DBZ that did it. .

Or X (The Movie)

Yea. . may have been X. As a young boy, watching a cartoon decapitate someone with such finesse was enough of a gateway for me to get my action junkie on. Been hooked ever since.

There are times when Death Note can feel a little ridiculous, and Psycho-Pass fixes that problem. Plus, it's just a damn good show even for people that have watched a lot of anime. .


Death Note and Ghost in the Shell are my top title for introducing folks or adult friends to anime , it has a more mature feel and has quality writting and animation . The ADR english version works better as well. So when Spycho Pass english is out, I can share that one as well.

But these people I know likes animation as a medium , meaning they have seen tv cartoons when they were kids, watched dysney movies, and the other animation movie by the big studios ..except
They just dont realize that there are other animation out there that has drama action and suspense/mystery in a TV series format

I'll trot out the old saying:

Anime is like the priesthood. You either feel the call, or you don't.

(And, if you do, someone probably suspects you of being a pervert.)


This is gold

You just need to recommend something suitable for their tastes...one size does not fit all


Yeah that's true but what kind of taste exactly doesn't enjoy all the crazed emotions Aot or Death note offer in just the first episode?

What about shows like Black Lagoon or Hellsing?
