My coworker is coming over tomorrow to watch anime. She hasn't seen anything except Naruto on Cartoon Network and I wanted to watch something that she'd find interesting too.

Maybe something mood-setting, but not too over the top....but also not too cutesy, I have to enjoy it too

I should be studying too

And I'm currently watching Kids on the Slope with the bf, whose exposure to anime is almost zilch. Seems to work out well so far. Rurouni Kenshin is another good one if you want a long marathon. Assassination Classroom is a fun watch too (not mood setting, but it's a great conversation starter). Ditto for Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.

Hunter x Hunter may be a good choice considering some of its similarities and parallels to Naruto. There's also the popular anime like Attack on Titan, One Punch Man, Death Note and Code Geass.

Well, if she's totally new to anime I'm inclined to say start with the classics. FLCL or Cowboy Bebop, you know? Especially if she isn't sold on watching anime with subtitles yet, both of those have spectacular dubs. If you're specifically looking for a romance that men and women can enjoy, I would say Ore Monogatari. My boyfriend and I watched it together and adored it, despite neither of us being into that genre. I'm not very far, but Nisekoi also seems like a good romance that is visually striking and artsy. Good luck!

When in doubt, the answer is always Gintama.

If she likes Naruto she probably would enjoy action and fighting mixed in with occasional comedy. I dunno. Watch One Punch man on Daisuki.

Treat her like a pal. You gotta have fun with her and be cool but easygoing and adventerous. I would suggest Hetalia: Axis Powers cuz it's funny and pretty educational.

He didn't say she liked Naruto, just that she knew it.

Show her something that's nothing like Naruto. Show her how wide anime can be.

- Beyond the Boundary, Nagi no Asukara, if she'd like something gentle and sensitive.
- Joker Game or Moribito, if she'd like something smart and mature
- Something horror, if she likes horror.

Go by what she likes in other media.

I think Another is a good bet tbh if your looking for horror
Angel Beats maybe...
Erased is nice
Baka and Test ? (Comedy)
I would second Assassination Classroom if you wanna watch something comedic.
Hunter x Hunter for something of the action genre.
