While I have no significant other, I have gotten a multitude of friends to try it. I just find out what kind of shows they watch and try to find an anime similar to their tastes. And I always start with something that isn't hard to understand and doesn't have a ton of Japanese references

Dont try and force your friends and significant others to like what you like. Thats just douchey.

You think it's a good idea to get her into anime.


And then you find yourself replaced by a husbando.

Can confirm, used to have a girlfriend. Introduced her to anime. Then all the nerds fell in love with her and I got booted out. So I am single now. Do not do this. Not safe.

In the contrary case, one of my former ex forced me to actual watch Black Butler.

Actually, I've found Amish girls don't need that much persuading.

My boyfriend liked anime before he met me so I never really got him into it.
But I did get him into all my favorite animes, if that counts.

Why would I want to get someone to watch something they're not interested in?

That just seems weird.

I suppose you could always make a deal with the devil.

Take her shopping in return for her trying out anime...

You don't have to be crafty. Just say, "Hey - this is something I like, want to watch it with me?" Like others suggested, starting with something in a genre you know they like could be helpful, but I don't necessarily think it's necessary.

I watch anime - sometimes with my wife present. She knows I like it, so she'll watch it with me - even though she does not. Likewise, I watch Grey's Anatomy & Switched At Birth with her, even tho I do not like either of them...

I love this guy.

lol, got ninja deleted but i guess suggesting the D, sex coupons, and anal is better than what i put, smh

as for the OP, you shouldn't force it on your significant other. if they sit down an check it out with you that should be enough. you don't need to be aligned 100%
