Hello everyone i was wondering how do you get people to watch anime or give it a shot? I mean back when i was just getting into anime a good friend of mine told me to watch Bleach...loved it... then i tried getting my best friend into anime as well,told him to watch what was popular at the time Attack on Titan or should i say shingeki no kyojin..he loved it...then started watching everything he could. What do you guys do? Recommend a Slice of Life type anime or do you go for a battle shounen type.

A magical fairy visited me and told me to get them to watch it because the power of friendship conquers all.

Depends on the person. If I think they will like a Slice of Life/romance: I recommend Fruits Basket. If I think they would like a psychological thriller: I recommend Death Note. If I think they will like shounen....I usually recommend Gintama....

I have tried for a long time. We were watching SNK at my school but my friends refused to come. I got my dad to watch a couple episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist, but he never got hooked. I guess it really depends on the person.

Depends on their character, but any genre would work most times when it comes to introducing and/or getting people interested in anime.

And you can say Attack on Titan...no need for the romaji lol. When people do that, they end up saying it as if it's an American word, which then makes bad habits.

Show them an anime that you think would be a great representation of that medium. Like it was stated above, Cowboy Bebop is a pretty good example.

I got into anime after a nostalgia trip of old shows turned out to be all anime - I decided to explore the revelation.
As far as getting others into anime, I do the same thing as books and match them to a genre. There's always something that appeals.
Nagging is an effective alternative.
