I was going to give you a high five until I read the second line. I kid. But to be serious that's the best course of action. Don't solve your anime woes with anime. Do something that shows you're independent and mature.
Agreed with the realistic stuff though.. I still say show them Elfen Lied and see what the reaction is xD.. If they can get passed the first nudey parts xD People seem to stop watching that, because they think that's what the anime is about u_u
