she really seems to enjoy, to be honest its my first time watching death note too and im hyped about it ^_^

Well, first I got my whole entire family into anime starting with D. Gray-Man and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood then Death Note. Now we watch it all the time together. So, that's 5 there.
Then, I made my friends my next victims people to inspire to watch anime. I made them all watch Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and then Black Butler and now they are all hooked on it, too. That's 6.
I'm working on getting another friend to start watching it. She's started to watch Clannad and likes it so far. Another one is starting to watch Hetalia. Soon, I will make them all anime freaks like me!!! lovers of the wonderful masterpiece that is anime.

No nobody who I know that doesn't already watch anime has no interest in it.

Well, I got my sister into it, and then my friends (who are twins), so that's three, and then my neighbor, three of my cousins, and I got one other friend to watch Fruits Basket. So I guess all in all that's.... 8 people? I'm on a roll.

I've got some (6) to watch Death Note or Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, although they all really liked it none of them are willing to watch more :<
Hopefully, I'd find some friend that would enjoy them and watch others too

lol

In the OP, you make it sound as if there are no "silly lil" anime shows out there. You've only exposed one (somewhat serious) anime show to a non-watcher, so you have not made your "mum" into an anime fan. All you did was get her into Death Note.

I have shown some of my friends a good amount of shows that I was pretty sure they would enjoy (Death Note, Black Lagoon, Trigun, Darker Than Black, Monster - that kind of stuff), but I'd say they are far from being fans of anime as a whole.

Listen, everybody wants change, don't nobody want to change though
don't nobody want to pray, till they got something to pray for
now everybody's gonna die, but don't everybody live though

my imouto, it's most likely my fault she's being an fujoshi now, I never show her any yaoi shows since I didn't like that kind of show, but she somehow managed to find the way by herself

and 2 of my friends, one is because he played P4, so when I tell him that's P4 the Animation, he copied it from me and watch it, he like it and started to copied other anime and now he's really into anime... the other one is pretty much limited into shounen anime form the start, then I told him to try Clannad and K-ON to change the mood, he's an moeniac now, claiming any anime girls he can find every now and then

I lended Madoka Magica, Code Geass and Haruhi Suzumiya to a friend. But he already had some interest in anime so I'm not sure it counts. He was the one who convinced me to watch Death Note. If he hadn't done that, I would probably still be exclusively watching Slice of Life. My Mum showed a little bit of interest in Code Geass but she fell asleep halfway through the episode. I don't like to force others. I just go quietly about my business while watching moe girls eat cake.

I got my best friend to watch Ano Hana and Chihayafuru and she enjoyed both. I'm trying to get her to watch Higashi no Eden and Steins;Gate now. I showed her Dectective Conan but she's not into old art styles. ):

My best guy friend started watching Shirokuma Cafe because I reblog it on Tumblr all the time and he likes cute stuff too. But he's not into anime in general and I'm okay with that.

I got another guy friend to watch 5cm per second and he normally watches anime. lol

I got my mom to watch some anime with me sometimes. She loved Shirokuma Cafe, Detective Conan, and Sakamichi no Apollon. She dislikes Kokoro Connect, SAO, and whatever else I've shown her. LOL

watch nodame cantabile

recommend me anything!

Your brother is a god...?? I know. Lame.

Two guys, but somehow it faded out. They watched most of the shit I also liked at the time. Naruto, Bleach, OP. You know it, the mainstream shounen stuff.

I got few of my friends into anime by letting them see movies like Mononoke Hime, Ghost in The Shell, Jin-Roh and series like FMA. But most of them watch only few series per year so they aren't too into the thing in general. Most of my anime viewing friends I've met other ways.

I have been trying to get my sister into anime since I started watching it but I've had no luck. Even so I still have a chance, she will watch something I recommend if I watch something she recommends.

So far Usgai Drop is out - she hates the art.

Hmmm... well I convinced my friend who is typically against anime to watch Full Metal Alchemist, so that's a big win in my book.

But I'm more likely the one who was converted by another friend on mine. He introduced me to all of my favorite anime aside from Love Hina, Inuyasha and Yu Yu Hakusho. Hell he also got me into more VN's after Katawa Shoujo so I'm pretty damn grateful to him.

Unfortunately most of my other friends refuse to watch things I ask them to because they think I'll try to convert them to Bronies... -sigh- Save for Doctor Who though, hah.

One of my cousins, 2 of my classmates and 2 or 3 of my other friends.

I've also seen Princess Mononoke with my mother, and she enjoyed it quite a bit. I might decide to show her some other Ghibli movie in the future.

Some of the people I helped get into anime, got some of their friends into it as well. As a result most of my friends know anime besides Naruto, Yu-Gi-Oh! or Pokemon, which is always a good thing.

So all in all that's 6 people or so. Not bad, I think.

Well my old roomate watched anime, but didn't watch one piece. Him and one of my co-workers. So I kept mentioning scenes from the series, or when I read the manga i would make comments like "Oh damn. Thier in trouble now." etc. Finally one caved and started watching One piece. A month later hew as caught up to me. lol.

The other took a bit more poking and prodding, but finally he watched the first 10 episodes and was hooked.

Now the three of us are One Piece Fans. Epic Win.

I've managed to get 7 of my friends into anime.

A majority of it was them seeing me watch it and it just ended up interesting them.

But I have introduced people to different series if you can mean it that way.

I said this before on some other thread but since it's related.. um, 7 years ago, I got my friend to watch Gundam SEED with me. Ever since, he really got into anime and manga. Honestly, he's more into than I am.
