Aaron compiled a list of the top ten gateway series for those who are new to the wonderful world of anime!
This article nailed it, 80% of these were the first anime titles I have seen and would easily recommend to non-fans. Toonami should pick up Black Lagoon and Gurren Lagaan now that their run on Starz/SyFy is over.
great list! especially gurren lagaan! if you want to get into anime, the one anime you need to start on is DBZ, because its just pure joy! and then step it up! to anime like Death Note
The list is ok. Some of them are for non-fans. Deathnote is probably number 1 for non fans because if its style. Then again it depends on what type of genres the non-fans like.
I would've had Buso Renkin somewhere on the list
nice list! I had watch 6 out of 10 on that list. I haven't watch Gurren lagann, might watch it if i have a chance.
Black Lagoon, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo are the only ones I really agree with. The rest are debatable. Trigun is pretty outdated. For Death Note I agree with Simon it has a very unique style. Gurren Lagan might be a little too out there in terms of character designs. Fullmetal Panic and Alchemist Brotherhood are anime I feel are great for people who are already fans of Anime.
