    I would say because most people want to share they hobbies they love with the person they love. It also finds an activity they can do together, at home, with a reasonable cost.

    As for the original question I'm a female and I love Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, Orange Road, Ah my Goddess, Scrapped Princess, Death Note, Pokemon (before it came to the US and became popular), I could go on naming for a long time actually! I would try and find one or two episodes to an anime and see if she likes it. If she does you can then buy the rest of the series.

    Well, if you had, then I'd have said he was in the wrong and should have just let you be you. However, you refused to try the things he liked while simultaneously saying they sucked. That's just being disagreeable and selfish. Being in relationship is about being willing to sacrifice; you should have at least validated him by trying them out. He had a right to be frustrated.

    I'd recommend against anything with mechs in it. Don't get me wrong, I love giant robots and all, but for someone who isn't into the genre, its pretty annoying to watch a 20 minute show where over 5 minutes is taken up with footage of the characters entering and exiting their robot suits.

    Although it highly depends on what kind of genre's she likes, you could always try the following:

    • The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
    • Sword Art Online (SAO)
    • Inuyasha
    • Utawarerumono
    • Excel Saga
    • Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood

    Just a few examples though because personal preference might vary

    No one has mentioned clannad yet? I alsmot cried on the last episode of after story.
    Clannad is a bit different from your average boys action anime though

    And the one who said you should not be ashamed of your anime. Not all anime can be watched in pubøic around people who don't understand it

    Also throw in a few movies like

    Ghost in the Shell
    Armitage
    A Perfect Blue
    Blood the Last Vampire
    Vampire Hunter D
    Grave of the Fireflies

    I was an anime fan long before I started reading manga but watching things like short animes like Serial Expirements Lain, Trigun or movies does help pull people in because they can see what having watched a "finished" anime feels like. And in cases like Berserk or Trigun they can go get the manga to get more information that was left out of the anime.

    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
    Maybe not the infinite loop part though, it bored even me.

    Hmm fate/stay night? aside from the ones I mentioned which my gf liked.

    Oh god you showed her death note?!... well dude best of luck ever comparing to L :P.

    But anyway I'd suggest just showing her anything you like tbh. FMA is always good (and I would suggest FMA before FMA:B, the first 15 episodes of FMA:B are so badly done in terms of pacing I almost stopped watching it before it actually got good).

    Any anime, personally I'd get her started on anime released in HD. It's easier getting in to something when it looks pretty. It's not very relevant what kind of anime as everybody has a different taste...go for mainstream anime as there is a reason why it is mainstream (it's good). So Bleach, Naruto, One Piece or Fairy Tail...I myself would start with Fairy Tail or Full Metal Alchemist if I were in your shoes.

    Stay/night is like a bastard child compared to Fate/zero.

    If you ever get tired of her, send her my way as she has spectacular taste in Anime unlike most women I know who watch lame shit like Chobits.

    Well, you would not want one that spends most of the time on Mechs. Something like Eureka 7, that has mechs, but focuses on story and people is easy to get girls into. Especially with the coming of age tale of both Renton and Eureka.

    Big O is also a good one.

    What series do women like?

    Because I don't know what to show her.... So heres some detail if this helps. She African American, 22, Educated enough that I didnt have to explain the dialogue in Death Note. And is interested in the medical field...And is christian... So yeah.. any help from ladies or gents whom have gotten women into anime/manga post that series. Thank you.
    Fruits Basket!

    When we were younger, we used to joke about it being the universal introductory anime for people. 60% of the time, it works every time.
    Listen kiddos, trust Handsome Jack. You want every part of this insanity.

    As a woman, I can vouch for the fact that there's no specified series that women like.

    I personally have been enjoying Elfen Lied and Blood+ recently, and previous favorites were Claymore, Trigun, and Gundam (Gundam Wing, in particular - series hit a high point there).

    My brother introduced me to DBZ back in the day (I tried getting in via Sailor Moon, and I hated that series from the start). So it's a matter of whatever the person is interested in. If she's interested in cute things, perhaps something from CLAMP would be a great start - Tsubasa is an amazing manga. If she's like me and not a terribly girly person, then probably some of the ones I mentioned earlier.

    Edit: Wanted to add Death Note isn't bad - it's a nice little "murder mystery"-esque series, but really not my favorite. I did like the live-action movies, but I just wanted to punch Light in the face.
