Durarara because it is everyday slice of life with a bit of anime quirks.. also the language is very true to everyday conversation in japanese and not so much like language you hear in typical anime

Any advice is good! Thank you!


I've moved this to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum, and have removed off-topic posts and those that refer to hentai.

I second (or third or something) the suggestion of Yona of the Dawn. For just cute I suggest Poyopoyo (each episode is just a few minutes long). I don't particularly like cute (though I seem to be softening up a bit) or cats but I enjoyed that.

Kill la Kill's got tough girls, and is excellent, but doesn't have a lot of cute, so that's a possibility, if she's okay with a fair amount of WTF.

I wholeheartedly agree with Clannad, Toradora, and Usagi Drop. I've shown all three of them to my wife (who used to think anime = porn), and she liked all of them. Eureka Seven might also be a nice one to add: strong women characters, mecha action, good story.

For movies, if she likes sci fi with strong female protagonists, Ghost in the Shell is a must-see. Spirited Away is also great.

In terms of manga, if she likes stories about strong women, I'd also recommend SA: Special A and Kouichi wa Maid-Sama. I wasn't impressed with either anime adaptation, but both manga are top notch.

Nana is a josei classic, has a soap-opera-ish feel to it. Covers the "strong independent woman" requirement.

First of all. Watch a dub. I know it's painful for a lot of us fans to go back there....but for a newcomer it's often a necessity. Sad to say.

As far as titles go...you can never go wrong with Death Note or Attack on Titan. Some of the girliest girls I know started by randomly watching Death Note and enjoying it. Plus- they both have dubs that are good enough to not make an otaku's ears want to die.
