Back in the day I just brought in the dbz movie tree of might dub and it hooked alot of people into anime. Keep In mind this almost 20 years ago lol. Good starter anime humm? From todays current anime I'd pick accel world, sword art online, watamote,kill la kill. But always start them with a movie. Can't tell you how many anime fans come from anime movies and move on to series.

DBZ created a LOT of anime fans back in the day. Seems like most fans who were born in and around the 90s can trace their interest back to that or one of the other shows from the old Toonami afternoon block.
