Sure, it's all opinions and blablabla, but I still feel like there is a line where someone's taste is just plain bad.

What triggered me to make this thread, is my friend who is relatively new to anime, but iv'e gotten him to watch some at this point (around 10-15)
I'd normally be fine with him having a completely different taste than me, but lately i've kept given him my favorites like Hxh, Steins gate, Fate zero and fma brotherhood, which he watched through without too much enthusiasm. The other ones I recommended, like Madoka magika, Gurren Lagaan and Cowboy bebop made him quit after 1 episode (madoka 5 min in), which is not even the reason I'm upset. (I know I'm sad for being upset over someone else's opinion, but these are my treasured gems)

On a whim, I recommended him Mirrai nikki, and it's literary his religion now. He refuses to watch anything else.
I hope this thread makes sence now.

I didn't know there was a line or a point.

When they dislike what I like and like what I dislike.

I forgot to mention that I don't consider Mirrai nikki bad, it's just nowhere close to the others

I don't believe there's "a line where someone's taste is just plain bad" but sure will go with it,

Have you ever thought that maybe your friend thinks your taste is just plain bad and that's why he refuses to watch what you watch?

Many of the recomendation's wasn't based solely on what I consider good, but rather the community...

So we have a hipster complaining his friend is not a fellow hipster? Seems legit to me that not everybody on the planet has the same taste and thinking anything is "bad taste" is bloody asinine.

Taste are very subjective and depend on state of mind, sometimes being too eager for your friends to check out a specific anime is enough to turn them off.

I have changed my mind about anime I like several times... there was anime I loved as a teenager that I doubt I could get into now without my nostalgia filter and other anime like One Piece I did not like at first because of the art and is now one of my favorite running shows.

True.
Maybe my enthusiasm for them made him go in expecting things way greater than they were.

It could just be that he prefers horror anime to other genres. There's nothing wrong with that. I hate reverse-harems and yaoi, my brother loves reverse-harems and the girl I'm dating loves yaoi. Different strokes for different folks. You try suggesting something like Higurashi or Another? Maybe they're more in line with his likes? Oh, and for the record I think bad taste is a myth perpetrated by Hollywood Movie Critics and Oscar Voters .

As a man who enjoyed many senseless ecchi series in his youth, I feel I have no right to complain about other people's tastes. lol
