I’m looking to make an anime list for my husband to truly introduce him into the world of anime. He’s been watching One Piece as it’s a favorite of mine, but he’s been getting overwhelmed. Hoping to give him some options that aren’t as overwhelming and maybe a little lighthearted. So what anime(s) would you recommend?
Gate. Be warned, only 2 seasons.
Id say maybe some Outlaw star, Trigun not the new one throw in some Cowboy bebop, if you wanna go lighter and have a nice laugh Konosuba, the devil is a part timer. Trying to stick to a small set and length. @Beestie had that one charged and ready huh bro lol
Vision of Escaflowne for a slow pace mecha story
Ghost in the Shell for action
DBZ for mindless combat
Anything from Studio Ghibli for the greatest stories
Is there a specific kind of narrative, genre, style your husband likes?
There’s a lot, but I’ll list a few:
Kimi ni Todoke
Spice and Wolf
Shakugan no Shana
The Ancient Magus’ Bride
Sword Art Online
One Punch Man
Angels of Death
Just to name a few. I don’t know his preference for anime, but here’s a variety.
Food wars is another one I would throw in there it to good not to have someone watch
I’d say Death Note. It’s short (only one season) and a completed story. Were mindblowing at the time I was watching. The other anime I find amazing may be too much on the fan, but anyways:
My Dress Up Darling
Or you could do movies…
- ninja scroll-
-vampire hunter D-
These were my intro to anime.
I think a sample of different genres is the way to go:
Action: Full Metal Alchemist
Sci Fi: Bubblegum Crisis
Martial Arts: Ranma 1/2 (comedy) / Fist of the North Star (action)
Fan Service: Shomin Sample
Slice of Life: My Dress Up Darling
Movie: Spirited Away
