How he managed to avoid spoilers for so long still surprises me.

He did make a few accurate predictions already, so maybe he simply forgot the spoilers he found.

That might work, I keep telling him the fights are better than naruto but since they are girls, he thinks I'm full of shit. He will succumb eventually.

>>102163839
I won't say it's the best experience, but it's a different experience. I watch anime with a group of friends semi-regularly and I usually suggest things I've already seen for us to watch. It's still enjoyable seeing the same show over again.

Some of the cons to the situation are that half the group wants dubs and I've only convinced them to watch Index subbed so far, my reasoning was that season 2 was never dubbed and it was awkward to switch between dubbed and subbed for the same show if they ended up liking season 1. Related to the dub issue, if we are watching a show dubbed and somebody decides to laugh, I literally have no fucking idea what the people are saying because lolnosubs.

We're over halfway done with Index II and everyone really likes it, I'm hoping I can suggest more subbed stuff now. I might even go out of my way to find shows that aren't dubbed at all to suggest.

>>102164067
If he likes Naruto he probably thinks the more flashy techniques and shouted attack names, the better the fight. I wouldn't even bother.

A friend of mine really liked Mami, despite having never seen the anime.
I kept bugging him to watch it, at least up to episode 3, and he goes, "Oh, because that's when she dies? Yeah I know."

I never got that satisfying feel of listening to his screams as his waifu was decapitated.

Nah, outside of Narutards with toonami-tier powerlevels normalfags don't watch anime.

Even the few that do watch anime freak the fuck out when it comes to things like fanservice or lolis.
There are people in this world that think the fairy on the cover of Bravely Default is child pornography.

I still agree that it's retarded for tryhards to shitpost about someone watching anime with a decent friend or two. It would be different if they were talking about parties or some other /soc/ faggotry.

Most Madoka threads aren't like this. It's mostly shit flinging and arguing over Homu being evil or not, bitching over Sayaka being a bitch and wanting dick or pussy, who is best meguca, was Rebellion shit or not and Mami's mamis.

I just started watching Madoka after a friend gave me all the video files. It's my third anime I've ever watched and my first "cute girls doing cute things" anime. I'm pretty excited, I especially like the blond one, she looks really warm and cute and fun to be around. Even if I don't like the show, if I can at least be around her cuteness for 12 episodes I'm happy
>>
So I'm like >>102163626 but I don't have that much of a casual brother

I really enjoy watching anime with him cause you know bonding and all that and we both really enjoy it

I want to watch madoka with him cause hell we have similar tastes in anime but he's just a bit more casual

getting him to watch a magical girl anime might be hard, should I just say "hey trust me on this and just watch until episode 3" or "hey I know this is going to be torture for you but can we please watch this we can even just do the first two movies and cut the time it takes for the series to turn in half"

I really don't want to do the latter

I also watch anime with friends, unfortunately they're not quite on my level so I have to carefully consider what to recommend. I think if I just keep recommending entry-level to medium type shows I can eventually show them whatever I want.

>>102166234
I was actually wondering the same thing. The problem is that if I can get them to watch the show, they probably won't want to watch the movies since they're nearly identical. But then again, the third movie is a sequel and might fit better with the first two movies.

I only have a few people I can actually call friends, and I tend to try getting along with friends of friends and my brother's friends. Eventually you work your way into circles and try not to think about what you mean to each individual person. I personally never talked to anyone in high school. School was pretty much shitty for me all the time, so I decided to keep school separate from my life that I enjoy and spent most of my time with video games and anime. My friends are all either people that grew up near me or from the Internet.

I know quite a few people who refuse to watch anything subtitled, they claim the subtitles distract them from the film or show but always later admit it's that they don't think they'd be able to read them fast enough because they don't read at all.

I have only once watched anything anime related with a friend, and it was Rebellion. I remember us being really confused until the pieces came together.

Also, wow there are a lot of faggots in this thread. There are the faggots who think that having friends is taboo, and then the faggots that actually care enough about someone else's opinion on here to argue with them.

I had one chance to try that with someone and didn't take it because work obligations made social watching impossible. In the end he turned out to be a pathetic piece of shit with laughable ideals, so I doubt I would have liked watching it with him anyway.

Except for all of the meta-shitposting and rampant xenophobia I'd agree with you.

Why didn't Madoka use her wish to bring Mami back?

Because she was too afraid to become a Magical Girl after seeing Mami die. It wasn't until the last episode that she gained the courage to make a wish, and by then, she had bigger intentions than saving Mami.
