What Anime Would I Introduce to a First Timer?
This is a hard one. Normally I try to find out what genre they like and the types of things they enjoy. To give an example, the most recent person I introduced to anime wanted to watch romance but also something that wasn’t super long so I suggested Snow White with the Red Hair which she loved. I went off of that to give her other anime to watch.
I also suggested other shows she might enjoy that were not romance because I knew she does like fantasy and doesn’t mind if there is no romance as long as the story is good. With that in mind, I suggested Demon Slayer because it’s a recent one and I know she’s enjoy it and she did.
So yeah, when I introduce anime to first timers I usually give them something that fits in with their tastes. There’s no point in me giving an anime that I think highly of if it’s not something they’re going to like. That being said, I do always slide in one or two recommendations that I love because it’s interesting seeing what they think of it.
