Do what others recommend: watch the first 20 or so (and maybe Kyuubei's arc since she's a reoccurring character) to get a gist of the characters then from there just pick which arcs you want to watch

Personally though I think going through everything was a ton of fun since you pick up on little details.

I read the manga then watch episodes of what I enjoy though

Not stopping my brother from getting into anime. Living with another fan is hell, especially when talking about anime casually. Everything has to be deep and gritty for him to be good. An added plus, he lurks and posts on /a/, and even better, I can tell it's him from his posting style and images he uses.

Watching my relative go in a downward spiral as he slowly got into anime, obsessed over everything before admitting to his parents that he liked 2d over 3d, lolis were fantastic and he couldn't feel anymore love other than the one for his waifu, etc.

Slowly he stopped leaving the house or so we thought and ordered all sorts of loli-shit and posted pictures of lolis on his walls, his mother supported the habit because she refuses to judge her son.

He was arrested molesting children at the local school tarnishing our family's reputation, his computer was filled with child pornography. He clung onto 3d after all.

For those interested, his waifu was Saya from Saya No Uta.

I regret not getting more people around me into anime, I constantly feel like I'm a selfish jerk who's keeping something good to himself when he should be sharing.

My brother walked in on me watching an episode of Haurhi years ago, I'm pretty sure it was the space battle game episode. We ended up watching the entire show after that in one sitting.

I've been trying to get him to watch weekly shit but he isn't having it. I've given him so many shows to watch that he only wants to watch stuff if it's complete.

The last show I got him to watch was Valvrave. I told him it was by the same guys that did Code Geass, his favorite show, and he eat it up. He liked it a lot, and I don't think it's ironic like on here when it was airing. I think I've created a monster.

Google. Learn shit.

Download a trading platform and start practicing with pretend money. Test out strategies and figure out your own personal strategies. Trial and error your way through. If you lost a shit ton of virtual money figure out why you did and prevent yourself from making the same mistake.

I did this for 3 months until I got my groove and then moved on to real money. Relatives got word of the large amounts of money I was making and wanted in.

Now I am rolling in new waves body pillows, nendos, and figmas every month while restraining myself just enough to make slightly more money the next month.
