I would pic a rec that matches their taste in entertainment. If it's a blind recommendation I would choose Death Note.

I say don't hold back because you think they might not be able to deal with "guys flying thru the air" and whatnot. Recommend the best shows you can think of. Attack on Titan, Mushi-shi, Cowboy Bebop, Gurren Lagann, etc. Ghibli films are always good, and maybe some "classic" anime movies like Akira, Ninja Scroll, and Ghost in the Shell.

My best blind recommendation to someone who is completely new to anime would be:

Death Note



Since several other people on this thread have recommended it and I also agree it is a great anime I will also recommend:

Code Geass



Lastly I will recommend the first series that got me into watching anime as an adult (I had watched Pokemon, Dragonball Z, and Yugioh as a kid but from middle school until I was a sophomore in college I didn't watch any anime):


Fairy Tail
