Okay a friend of mine was suggested she watch anime from another friend and he recommended an anime that wasn't exactly beginner-friendly. After she was quote-unquote 'scarred', she decides to give anime another chance but ends up watching, basically, the same thing. And every time after that she just seems to have bad luck with anime genres. I recommended she watch Bleach the first time but she doesn't like the action, so i recommended Hetalia. She said it was fun but short and doesn't want to search for good anime since she always ends up in a sketchy section.
She is officially convinced that all anime is hentai, but I really want her to see at least a few good shows before forming such an opinion.

Can anyone suggest anything for her to watch?
