Talking to this woman on OK Cupid who doesn't like anime that much. Her sister does and has tried to convert her using Fairy Tail. It almost worked but she still isn't really into it. These are her interests when it comes to TV and movies. What anime should I have her watch to try and convert her into liking anime? Something that's sort of slice of life, adventure, thriller, and comedy. She enjoys horror movies and stuff like that, anime can totally fix her up with horror. But she likes comedy and reality TV for her television.


Personally would be not to try and change a person all that much it happens naturally.

But if you wanna try give her Death Note. Thats what got me into anime.

If she likes comedy, have her watch these two:

-MY Love STORY!!
-Himouto! Umaru-chan

Even my wife, who isn't an anime fan, likes those two series for their cute main girls.

I can't even get my sister into anime. (Though I blame her ex for showing her avatar and not something she might actually like like Death Note). So good luck with that.


Your first mistake was considering Avatar an anime.

Agree with kdroberts, your stirring a hornet's nest brotha but if you insist...

Black Lagoon is what she needs. When you wanna drag someone into this it's best to give em somethen on the fringe, instead of drowning them neck deep in bubbly huge eyeballed bikini wearing pillow fights.
Black Lagoon has plenty of comedy, ironic, slapstick you name it. And it's got horror in it's own sick way, I mean it brother Black Lagoon is dark, downright pitch fkin black at times. The vampire twins.... ugh. This is geared more towards a new beginning when it comes to a slice of life. And it's empowering to women. Everyone loves Revy.

She likes reality tv, drop her.
jk. If she doesn't make you watch it, let her enjoy her own entertainment.
But if she does , then give her evangelion.

Black Butler English dub may be a good gateway .ince its in English, personally Deathnote is what turned me into a major anime fan. Hunter X Hunter would be another good starter anime.

Really just talk to her about what kind of anime she might like, I would stay away from the heavy violent/ecchi stuff usually a turn off for most people. Also do dubs for a first time, subs can be off-putting for some at first. Also ask the sister to help out, watch things together, if possible.
