Anyway, any thoughts on the matter would be greatly appreciated. Oh also I'll just say don't suggest the Japanese version with subs because she nor any of my other friends want to see that. sorry
Then you will never get anyone interested =[ the dub is so terrible i wouldn't watch it even if it was the only one piece availible and i love one piece.
I found that making someone watch the first 5-10 eps works quite well, i MADE my brother watch the first few eps of Bleach, Death note, D.Gray Man and One piece but he didn't like One piece or D.Gray Man.
Not exactly what you want to hear when your trying to convince someone to watch it XD what put my brother off mainly was the fact that there is almost 400 episodes plus he likes alot of sword fights and for some reason has like a shinigami fetish or something (Btw he was very against anime he couldn't stand it now he can barely wait a week for the bleach eps)
Anyway just try getting them to watch the Jap version, it only makes it better just like i wouldn't expect someone to want to watch an english/american show with a japanese dub for example, it just wouldn't feel/sound right.
