MediaConsumesMe Posted March 7 Share Posted March 7 (edited) So currently I've been watching select anime with two other friends, one relatively new to Anime who'd only watched Steins Gate and Pokemon and maybe like one episode of Guilty Crown, before any of the next shows featured below. The other @MarathonGuy1337 What's been most interesting is the different reactions from each of us towards the shows we've watched up until this point. The first, which he selected as he was relatively new to Anime but even he had heard of this one. Attack on Titan. He eneded up coming away with a general 'it was alright' attitude. @MarathonGuy1337 thought it was pretty good, and I didn't really care for it at all. Death Note which @MarathonGuy1337 choose and unfortunately Death Note was not a hit for this newbie. I personally didn't think it was all that bad, however as this was my third watch some sequences and plot contrivances were grating. @MarathonGuy1337 still believed it was a masterpiece. Finally we reached my choose - after watching Death Note for five months and given its meek reaction I was tentative of my pick. However Fate smiled on me. Yes I choose Fate/Zero and surprise surprise we all had a blast - my love of Fate is kind of well know to regulars on the site, but the newbie ranked it above all the previous shows he'd seen (admittedly not many) even @MarathonGuy1337 who initially had not been taken in to Fate - as I showed him Apocrypha first and it took till he and I sat through Unlimited Blade Works for him to finally get Fate and the wider nasuverse, but on this watch of Zero he seemed to be much more sucked in. We beat the first season out within a few days of watching. Which was far faster than I had expected given Death Notes... slow burn. So have you guys ever shown a friend a show that they ended up loving, despite you not being as madly in love with it or have you been shown a show that someone claims is a masterpiece but you end up not liking it at all.
