I want to get my friend that doesn't watch anime to watch mushi-shi. I was wondering what episode I should show him first. I don't think I can get him to watch any of the second season because it's not dubbed, even though I think it has much stronger stronger stories.
Would also be great to know if there is any special viewing order people use.

I've moved this thread to Advice, Info, Recommendations.

I personally prefer to watch episodes in the order they aired, but I agree that's not critical for Mushi-shi and that finding an especially compelling episode might be a better way to hook someone.

It just so happens that I first encountered Mushi-shi, as a dub, at a convention and it either wasn't being shown in order or I happened to show up when they'd already shown a few. So, the first episode I saw was Episode 6, Those Who Inhale the Dew.

It was pretty intense and captivating, so based mostly on the evidence that "it worked for me" (It wasn't long after that I sought out the whole series and watched it), I'd say start with episode 6.
