Question What anime would you recommend for someone who had never seen anime before?

What anime would you recommend for someone who had never seen anime before?

Something that would give them a good idea of what anime is.

I'd say Death Note since most of the people who havent seen anime probably think it's childish and is meant for childeren.

I would depend on there taste in "regular" movies if they like Psychological Thrillers like The sixth sense, then I would say Higurashi.

If they like Action, I'd probably say Murder Princess. (It's short with only 6 episodes so easy to finish for a newbie.)

Drama, I'd say Clannad.

Someone else might have to pick the comedy, I haven't seen anything super hilarious, Pani Poni Dash is pretty funny though - but might be hard for a newbie to get some of the jokes.

of course DBZ is always a great start for action as well.

Id say Love Hina because it was my first anime series, although Death Note, Code Geass or Claymore would all be good for different reasons too

I'd start with a short anime series like Cowboy Bebop compared to a long one like DBZ, Bleach, Naruto, Death Note, One Piece, etc.

So Cowboy Bebop would be on top of my recommendation list followed by Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu.

Yu Yu Hakusho is never a bad place to start. Action, school life themes, good character development. All and all a great series from beginning to end

kekkaishi i though it was very good storyline and it not very long but not that short either. i also think it has a ending that i feel was more complete than a lot of animes i have seen.

Can't go wrong with the classics; they're are always a good place to start. Then, when they're ready, they can move on to the recent animes. I know Hetalia would be nice, since it's rather light and short, and quite easy to follow. For a nice, hilarious slice-of-life, I'd recommend Atashin'chi. And if they're looking for something rather psychologically heavy, I'd recommend them either Death Note, Code Geass, Akira or Evangelion. I won't ever recommend them any of the HST or all those lovey-dovey moe animes.

I would recommend to watch Shuffle!, some episodes of Naruto or/and Bleach, Death Note and HOTD / Elfen Lied.
I think after those he/she would understand better what anime is all about.
