When you want to get someone into watching anime, what anime do you recommend them to watch? Would you recommend more of an oldschool series ie. Samurai Shamploo or Kenshin Himura? Or would it be more of a 12 episode harem type show?

Depends on age and interests. kind of too much of an open ended question.



with that being said you can never go wrong with Cowboy Bebop.

I personally would never start someone in anime with a harem show, people who don´t watch anime always think that all that there is to it is fan service for perverts.

I would make them watch Berserk, it doesn´t matter of it´s the movies or the tv series, Berserk is a great example of how mature anime can be. Also Fullmetal Alchemist and Cowboy Bebop, you can´t go wrong with either of them

Rom-Com: Girls Monthly Nozaki-kun
Mecha: Valvrave the Liberator
Thriller: Terror in Resonance
Horror: Another
Comedy: Mitsudomoe
Superhero: Symphogear
Sci-fi: Steins;Gate

I started with Elfen Lied, and I managed to get one of my cousins into anime with Elfen Lied too. I also managed to get my younger brother into anime with Bleach.

Since i watch a little of everything, i usually ask what type of genre they would like to see and give them a small list to choose from. If they dont know i'll tell them to watch death note since thats what turned me into a otaku. lol
