I swear I’m a walking anime database to my friends and acquaintances. If they want anything anime-related, I’m the person to turn to. Not that I mind, but things can get a bit tough when the person who ask for series recommendations isn’t someone I know very well.
This acquaintance of mine has recently started her Japanese lessons and is having trouble understanding her teacher’s heavily accented English and her tendency to explain things in Japanese. So she turned to me for anime recommendations in bid to improve her listening skills and understanding of the language. She doesn’t want to watch Japanese dramas or movies because she thinks they are boring. Frankly speaking, I am not prepared to introduce anime to a person who once thought Naruto is synonymous to anime, a person who until yesterday avoided anime like a plague.
