Alright, so I think a good "starter" anime would totally depend on the genre the person who you're showing it to enjoys watching. Like if they hate romances you're obviously not going to show them My Little Monster right off the bat - which is indeed a good romance to start off with, my friend and I got like 5 girls from school hooked on anime from that lol - but instead a genre they're more interested in watching which could be anything.Cause like what if they're only into crime? There's plenty from that genre to get into.
- Avatar The Last Air Bender Yes! It is indeed anime! I've heard too many people say it's a cartoon which it's not! This show is literally one of the best in my opinion. The character development is good and just every episode is interesting. There's a lot of humor and there's intense moments and it's just a very well crafted show. I love it! My parents, my niece and nethu, my brother, we all love watching this together. Show number 2 - Fairytail Okay so for people just starting out and are okay with almost all genres mixed into one this is definetely a treat! Unnatural hair colors, perfect body images, interesting but cute clothes, and giant boobs lol this is a good one to get adjusted to all of that with. And by no means am I trying to put this show down - believe me this show is far more than that. That stuff is just very exaggerated within the anime. But the plot is wonderful and the character development was very well played out. There's tons of humor, you're going to shed some tears here and there, there's intense moments, all in all this show to me is literally a treat to watch. Each episode was worth 24 minutes of my life. Also, all the openings and endings are awesome so if you haven't seen it yet just a heads up - listen to them at least 3 times. I say that because sometimes listening to them at first they don't sound all that great, the second time it gets better, but usually by the third time I usually find myself listening to them on youtube over and over.
