Recently, I got my best friend into Trigun and Kill la Kill, although he hasn't watched past episode 3 of KlK yet because he's too technologically retarded to use crunchyroll or torrent it. Then again, I struggle to call him a normalfag considering that we play we play D&D together

Kill la Kill is a gateway anime of the worst kind. It's a bad series, a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn't very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive shipping faggotry and DARKNESS. The normal anon can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the series itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.

However, these very aspects that try to smear over the shit of its core make it a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable underageb& faggots who engage in every kind of faggotry both online and in the real world. The superpowered characters all trying their hardest to look cool, the ultima uniforms, peculiar, colorful clothes, the whole edgy faggotry and everything about the Kill la Kill world fuels their escapist fantasies, while the pity-party character backgrounds, emphasis on revenge, and overall preachiness of the series make it fit just right with the mary-sueish drives of your average preteen and his sense of unwarranted self-importance towards the world. Exactly the kind of shit that makes little kiddies and underageb& retards eat this shit right the fuck up.

Kill la Kill is basically THE series to attract the most hated anime fanbase known to /a/, which is why, regardless of individual opinions, it is the responsibility of every anon to troll the fuck out of this show and everyone who likes it, and ensure that no Kill la Kill threads ever encourage the newfriends to show their faces here.

A friend introduced me to anime, why the hell would I ever do that to someone else?
>>
When my friends try to introduce me to their Anime, I pretend I've never heard of it.
Why would you try to talk to people about Anime? It never goes well. If they are not into anime, you'll make them feel uncomfortable because nobody likes it when people talk to them about things they don't care about. If they are into anime, they will start to talk about the shitty shows they like and will make you wish you never talked to them. And if they are into anime but their taste isn't shit, they will say "Y-you too..." and think you are the pleb for not hiding your powerlevel.

Fucking netflix, I swear. I've had almost a dozen normalfag friends start watching one anime or another because it popped onto that stupid website. It's dumb because they'll never become self-sufficient, they;'ll never look up or download anything on their own. They'll only ever watch things that are put on netflix or have a stream shoved in their face.

I have friends willing to watch some anime, but they can't be bothered to keep up with things regularly, so sometimes we watch things together.

>And if they are into anime but their taste isn't shit, they will say "Y-you too..." and think you are the pleb for not hiding your powerlevel.

Maybe my friends and I aren't completely autistic like you. We discuss shit we've seen, argue about our different opinions, recommend things we haven't checked out of heard of yet. It's also useful when you don't watch to watch the first three episodes of everything this season and have someone you know has good taste in.. say romance, to let you know that this one romance anime isn't worth looking into.

I also watch currently airing shows some of us are really hyped out together.

You should stop thinking that everyone is out to get you because of your hobby.

It all depends on interests, but generally I try to recommend my friends shows that might suit their tastes or are very low power-level.

In terms of stuff that's aired recently, TTGL, Steins;Gate have gotten my friends back into watching anime. My roommate who immensely enjoyed DBZ watched Jojo with me and his girlfriend and they're pretty excited for Part 3.

Hell, I even turned a friend into a weeb because I told him to watch Valverave, since he likes retarded shit

It really just all depends what they think they might go for, pretty much, but don't start off with something with lots of girls in it unless you know it's their thing.

I then moved on and introduced it to other people I know. Since i'm at Uni and most of my friends are Uni age, they mostly have groups based on interest. I went on to introduce it to my christian/mormon friends, liberal atheist friends, super liberal athiest friends that moved to austin to go to UT, athlethic people I know from the gym, ect...

The kicker is that my Uni also has a convention every year that's supposed to be for sci fi buffs but appeals to pretty much every group of nerd. It's this convention actually

Damn this was horribly written, i'm way too sleepy. But yeah essentially I don't find it hard to introduce people to anime or talk about anime in public at all. Probably because I don't view anime to be this super secret niche thing, it's a medium of entertainment like everything else and like everything else it's a medium in which you can come across many amazing experiences. Many people think anime and hentai are the same thing, think all anime is like Yugioh and Naruto, or think that all anime is Moe and Fanservice. In these cases I give them the same explanation I typed above, because that's my honest view of anime. I guess it could also help that I personally don't like any anime that are entirely fanservice and moe for the sake of being fanservice and moe, so that cuts a ton of the weeb stuff out.

No one likes anything simply because it is defined or contains an element they've enjoyed in another series.

A shitty show is a shitty show. A shitty film is a shitty film. No one will watch a movie solely because it fits a genre, is what I am saying. They need at least execute what makes the genre interesting well, otherwise no one will bother.

I don't watch ecchi shows usually, but I'm watching Saikin Imouto this season. Why? Because it's entertaining, not because it is ecchi or despite the fact that it's ecchi.

I'm watching it because it's entertaining.

This is not something special or unique to your tastes.

Also, what kind of show has moe "for the sake of moe?" What the fuck does that even mean? You just come off as pretentious with that final paragraph.

There absolutely are people who will watch something only due to its genre. You could get a stereotypical sorority girl to watch a romantic comedy just because it's a romantic comedy, you could get a stereotypical horror movie buff to watch something just because it's a horror movie, or in this case there are plenty of times when you can get a typical person who fits into the weeaboo stereotype to watch something because it has a lot of fanservice. Do you legitimately believe this to be false?

>I personally don't like any anime that are entirely fanservice and moe for the sake of being fanservice and moe

By fanservice and moe for the sake of fanservice and moe i'm referring to shows that rely mainly or only on fanservice and moe to draw and keep people in. Shows whose only appeal is the fanservice and or moe.

Highschool of the Dead and High School DxD are good examples of fanservice mainly for the sake of fanservice, shows where most of the appeal comes from fan service. I think moe isn't as bad (and in this case i'm specifically referring to overly cutesy girls usually in high school) but it's still prevalent. Keep in mind that i'm not talking about shows that have a lot of fan service or moe, just shows whose entire appeal is the fan service and moe.

The Monogatari series has a lot of fanservice, but it also has a lot of other stuff to offer.
