So I had an odd day. I got my Attack on Titan dvds a few days ago, and my mom was curious.

Bad idea showing it to her.

She said it was horribly sad and traumatic. After only watching the first episode after the mom is eaten.

We have this awkward talk and suddenly she thinks every anime I watch is as dark. It worried her.

It was weird to talk about and explain that not everything is dark.

I saved the evening by netflixing Ouran Host Club. XD to show her something light and funny.

So I think I did good to show her that. Iono.

It was odd.

I'd rather watch a dark anime with a good plot, characters, and animations than some happy crap with the most cliche and overused characters and plot ever.

Yeah there are some awkward moments with watching with Non-anime people. One day I was watching Kill la Kill with a few friends new to anime and they thought the title sounded interesting so I let them watch it after warning them. They were so confused and it was really awkward to explain fan-service to them along with all these other tags about anime,

but I got them watching AoT so it was alright, but yeah before you show your friends anime explain to them Everything on anime then show them some good ones like FMA, Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, and AoT.

Sword Art Online is fine if your friends are new because it covers almost everything to know about anime. Including weird tentacle rape scenes

Every anime is dark. My family is worried for my sanity.

I try not to watch anime with my aunt because whenever I do, she either makes (sarcastic) jokes or points out plot holes. Or calls it stupid.

A few friends and I watched the first few episodes of Attack on Titan with their English teacher. xD He seemed to think it was cool but it was kind of weird xP
I've also watched it with my siblings before who don't really watch anime, but I've started to convert them into liking it more

If I'm watching anime with people who don't watch it, it's usually my family, and they don't care as much, since I'm 25. My dad and sister will joke about some of the scenes, though.

More than once have they seen an anime I was watch and they'd go "The hell?" and I can only reply "...It's exactly what it looks like.

I've also watched it with a bunch of my friends who didn't really watch anime. Now they're addicted, as well.

I've been trying to get my girlfriend into anime for some time now. We've watched five different anime series together at this point and her reactions have varied from ''meh'' to ''this is pretty cool''. I was hoping for something more along the lines of ''I freakin love this shit'' by now. Slow and steady, I guess.

The otaku is weak in this one.

... but there's potential.

I havent really watched it with anyone that isn't into it.

It's kind of funny that the couple of friends who don't watch it watch shows like Dexter, which can have anime vibes to them, even if they aren't anime themselves. They say it's too nerdy for them, though.

Yeah, it feels pretty awkward watching anime with friends who don't usually watch it.
Tried to get them to watch, but all my attempts fail.

Yeah, I would not start my MOM on AoT. Maybe my dad, who likes sci-fi and action, but not my mom. I'd show my mom something like The Eccentric Family. Actually, now that I think about it, she watched an episode or two of The Devil is a Part-TImer! with me and like four episodes of Sword Art Online with me.

She's pretty cool.

My dad watched the first 3 episodes of Fulllmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, but didn't really like him. I'm kind of hoping to eventually run into a sci-fi show to try on him someday.

One of my little sisters has wanted to watch with me, but sadly I was always watching stuff that wasn't totally appropriate for her. Maybe sometime I'll let her watch Kiniro Mosaic or something similarly inoffensive with me.
