I would have them watch paradise kiss or The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. a nice english dub to start them off, then i would set them up for the kill with school days.

Through experience, it's easiest to first lend them movies from your own collection. I usually lend them Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke, etc. Miyazaki in general is a great start.
The in my case, where most of my friends are girls, I suggest they try watching things like Ouran or Fruits Basket and then I let them decide form there what they'd like to watch.

it is depended on what he's interested in, so if he doesn't like violence or sci-fi, then a realistic or insirational anime (I can't think of one right now)

Don't feed them shit like stereotypical shounen anime, that will only give them bad taste or so to speak, tunrning them to being intolerant to every other anime out there. Start out with those "short" yet baddass episode animes with a good start and good action like Trigun/Hellsing/Samurai Champloo.

Then you can move on to longer animes with morals like Deathnote/Full metal alchemist/Monster.
After that they're probably ready to follow even longer series like D.gray man, Gintama and One piece.

If they like a certain sport it'd be easy to just start off with that. Or if they 're dirty suckers for fanservice just show them any harem/ecchi show out there.


i totally agree with ya

Berserk, Elfen Lied or Higurashi no Naku Koro ni all leave brilliant first impressions.

it depends on wat kind of anime genre he/she likes. for example , my sister hates all those actions types but she likes romance . so maybe i suggest Vampire knight & she liked it.
