We all like watching anime or reading manga and stuff and some of them are/were probably on your watch list cause you've been told to watch it or has heard that it was good from family/friends/complete strangers. I mean I've been seeing people ask for recommendations in different sites(like yahoo! answers), reading anime mags/reviews or just going through youtube and asking randomly.

My question is, what's the result? I've watched a few animes that didn't interest me at 1st but someone encouraged me to watch it and I was so glad i stuck with it til the end. There are some though that I heard was good but in the end, I was either disappointed or annoyed(I never fail to voice my complaints to my brothers when they're the ones who made me watch them).

How about you guys?

(was just asking out of curiosity)...

sometimes they're a hit: (OHSHC, Another, Chaika), sometimes they're a miss (Irregular at Magic High)... sometimes i feel neutral towards it (Bakemonogatari).

Yeah, it depends on who recommends it. Some people I will watch anything they recommend, others I will need at least a plot synopsis from somewhere else before I'm willing to watch what they recommend. e.g. I love Gintama and will tell anyone who watches anime that they should be all over it, but I know there are quite a few people who just don't get into it. Different strokes for different folks, ya know.

The only anime I ever watched was DBZ, Naruto, and Bleach. I wasn't an avid anime watcher, and I went MIA on it for yeaaaars until my friend recommended me to watch SAO. After that, I spammed anime

Well, this one guy...






Was ranting and raving to me about some anime one time. Something about a boy named Pico and a few animes he's been in...

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like everybody has that one friend who if they recommend a show to you, or even just mention they really like it, you know you'll like it just as much as they do. I have one I can always count on to have the best taste.

I had a friend who recommended RWBY (not an actual anime) and i couldn't get past episode 1.

A lot of people recommend SAO amd i do like it. But i really really struggle to actally empathise with the characters.
