D = Younger male coworker who happens to like anime
Me = Crazy geek

Conversation that happened yesterday:

D = It was the most EPIC thing I've ever seen. (talking about something-or-other from One Piece)
Me = Psssshaw! It's SO not as epic as two Gundams blowing things up!
D = ...what's a gundam?
Me = *speechless and realizing, once again, that I am old*

So I lent him my Gundam Wing season one box set.

Conversation that happened today:

Me = *taking a sip of my tea in the lunch room*
D = *rushes in* This series is fucking AWESOME!
Me = *smirking in joy at corrupting another young soul to the dark side and taking another sip of tea*
D = *babble babble-I wasn't paying attention-something something* Are Quatre and Trowa gay?
Me = *chokes on tea* *gasps for air* WHAT?!
D = Are they gay? Because that would be cool, they'd be like the Spartans only in giant fighting suits!
Me = *speechless... again* ...You... you were my little brother in a past life weren't you?
D = ...huh?

This lead to an awesomely long conversation about the Gundam Wing fandom and how awesome it is. Talking about all that fun stuff made me feel squishy and happy. Also D is straight and, despite being younger than me (by five years), has a wife and 10 month old daughter. This was the best conversation I have had in an extremely long time. It was fantastic! ♥

Nope. He didn't have a clue.

...this new generation of anime is SO not educating it's fans properly. =P (We are sooooo old.)

But... it's Gundam! It's an epic franchise of DOOM and SEED wasn't that long ago, was it?


(We really are old. :p)

He knows Trigun, right? Tell me he knows Trigun!

He didn't know Trigun either.

Or Hellsing or Macross. (We're not old, just ancient. =P) He didn't know Ranma 1/2 or Inuyasha either.

He'll be watching those once he's finished with Gundam Wing. I have taken it upon myself to educate this poor boy, and show him what he's been missing!

Naruto, One Piece, Bleach and Death Note. Plus a few insignificant others.

Don't worry though. I'll have him hooked on all the good "oldies" soon enough. =P
