"I hate anime"

a conversation between me and a friend

me: ...anime

her: oh

me: what?

her: i hate anime

me: why?

her: its stupid and cheesy

me: what shows have you seen?

her: dragon ball z and sailor moon. ive lost some friends to sailor moon

me: well not all anime is like that. thats just whats on Toonami

*uneasy silence*


first of all, Toonami does give anime a bad name... and second.. what do you say to someone who thinks of anime like that??

Be like a Christian Missionary… Seriously they did wonders for their cause in America and any other colony… I mean, sure it was unethical but it got what they wanted…

Well try to point out the flaws in their thinking and hope for the best , that's what I say…

When people respond to my anime shirts with toonami-related comments, I give out a laugh and tell them that for some reason toonami seems to go out of their way to have their shows be some of the least good anime out there. (not counting Gundam and outlaw star, even though OS's cut jub was horrid)

First of all you pick an anime which you think might be suited for her, then have her sit through it, give it a chance. If she refuse you might as well give it up, no point in pushing the envelop when her minds is already set.

Is she sexy? If yes, then converting her towards anime should not be your first concern.



I personally do not take offense to people who dislike anime without reason. Many (most) of my friends are like that.
Oh well, more for me.... I think

Here is some anime I think would be best suited to let her know that animes is not braindead like DBZ or Sailor moon.

Grave of the Fireflies, even parents would fall for this one.
Neon Genesis Evangelion, blows her mind away, but don't tell how many eps there are, she might get blown off by the amount.
Cowboy Bebop & Trigun, both have extreme serious moments and then some really funny moments.
Earth Girl Arujuna, good deep plot and sentimental, but a little too much tree huggin' so if she is almost at the edge(depression) then don't show her this, might pushed her over the edge.
Lain
Now and Then, Here and There
Princess Mononoke
Inu Yasha
