Haha after 6 years of constant nagging I've finally convinced my two dear parents to indulge in one day of pure anime with me. Wahahahahahahah I can't wait. However There is something I need from one kind person. Can anybody please send me via message a 48 guest pass so I can set it up for tomorrow? I will post here if anybody does so nobody gives me any extra!! Please if anybody can, I'd greatly appreciate it. Also post here what anime we should watch... I'm thinking Elfin leid :33333

elfen lied wouldn't be the best choice since its heavy on the gore (one of my favorite shows)

i would recommend finding Evangelion somewhere.

Or Psycho Pass. A show that deals with intellectual themes. If your trying to turn someone on to anime, its best to go in with a show that doesn't rely on particular fan services (gore, nudity,) and so on.


other recommendations: Darker Than Black, Full Metal Alchemist, Black Lagoon, Baccano!, Hunter X Hunter 2011.

If you have it, "Planettes." If not, then "Space Brothers" is a very good choice. It has lots of interesting themes, excellent character development, incredible amounts of inspiration, and most importantly, no fan-service.

If Space Brothers doesn't get 'em hooked. Nothing will.

Personally I have done what you are doing now.
I watched Romeo x Juliet with my parents the first time and they enjoyed the twist on a classic book that was Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
I have also watched a little bit of angel beats and they've watched Wolf Children

You should choose an anime that anybody can get into, or something that is just hilarious or tear jerking. Some Hayao Miyazaki films might get them into anime permanently :3

For a guest pass please visit The Official Guest Pass Thread (it's "stickied" near the top of the Anime Forum. People post passes there, or you can ask, and someone might PM one to you. Be warned though, it gets kind of crazy on Saturdays with everyone wanting to watch SAO!

If you need more recommendations, please post your request in the Recommend Me an Anime (it's also "stickied" near the top of the Anime forum).

I'm closing this thread though because personal threads aren't allowed.
