Top 10 Anime for People Who Don't Like AnimeIf you ever thought about starting to watch Anime and want to find your first Anime to watch, these might be some choices to consider!
Also these are not the greatest Anime, just the ones that best work as a start for watching Anime!
The Top Ten
Not as annoyingly childish as lots of other anime, even though those animes are for teens at least, I feel Death Note is like its own show/manga. You don't have to be into anime just to like Death Note since I see it as a series of its own without all those annoying anime scenes in it that you wouldn't see outside of anime, like when they get those exaggerated facial expressions or overly cute feminine reactions. Don't get me wrong, I like anime and I personally see it as something to be proud to embrace since it's so unique and fun to embrace, but if you're a Westerner like me and don't like all those anime-only annoying stuff or aren't attracted to Japanese-only things, watch Death Note. It's a Japanese anime and all, but I feel this is the most REALIST of animes and one of the few that can be taken as an universally ordinary but excellent series to watch, but with the anime format over real life dramatizations.
Mostly for mature teens. But overall it is very interesting.
Death note is the first Anime I watch and after that love anime.
What can I say? Just watch.V 3 Comments
Hey, it got me into anime. Might do the same for you. - Skullkid755
Considered a classic by basically everyone, even people who don't like anime like this series. If you think anime is just for little kids, watch this series. It will prove you wrong. It is extremely mature and doesn't sugarcoat anything. It is something that can be recommended to anyone who not only likes anime, but likes the fiction medium. Why are you still reading this? Go watch this masterpiece and watch it now! - Elric-san
Cowboy Bebop is an anime legend revered among both anime fans and non-anime fans alike. Great characters and plot put into Western storytelling by Shinichiro Watanabe makes this anime a masterpiece. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I highly recommend this anime for newcomers. Great action and good ol blues and jazz. Plus, it has a very awesome plot. - SapphireGrim
Yak dragon ball z is best _ srajan.sharma.39 f(b)V 1 Comment
One thing is for sure, it's 10 times better than Sailor Moon by a long shot! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
While I did hate the ending, the anime is chock-full of great characters and a unique premise and story. Only 51 episodes and Soul Eater is bound to make you fall in love with the series. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I'm stay watch it.
Very boring, seriously.
Best anime ever in my opinion! So sad yet so hilarious.
Who gave me a thumbs down? My comment was obviously a joke. - RalphBob
The name says it all.
The dub is beautiful.
"Even electronic brain pancake crystals elderly" ~ some guy from the aime. - RalphBob
Funny, awesome, cool, exiting, makes me scream, laughter my head off, and the uniqueness... ITS AWESOME
<-- Whys everyone screaming so much?!
The Best Of All Time!
This should be edited to Dragon Ball Super
Honestly, dragon ball Z was the reason I didn't see anime. - zxm

On Most Disappointing Anime of All Time, this is in the top 5... whatever! I don't care! Gurren Lagann is one of the most action-packed anime that I have seen. It has mechas, over-the-top action, awesome animation, and the tale of a man who continues to find his destiny. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I like the ideas but all got ruined when the messages of "never giving up" and "believing in yourself" were shouted out really loud that it annoyed the hell out of me. - SelfDestruct
Just what the hell do you think this series is? Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
This anime literally takes what looks to be a generic and unoriginal plot and puts it into great execution. With fantastic characters, awesome animation and music, brilliant plot twists and some of the best acts of tragedy put on an anime series, Attack on Titan is sure to please people hungry for horror and tragedy. Truly one of the greatest masterpieces of the decade. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Why the dislikes? Is it because Attack on Titan is too violent for anime beginners? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I only like the theme song. - Brobusky
ATTACK ON TITANS IS AN AMAZING ANIME
I can't WAIT TILL SEASON 2 by the way THE MOVIE
SUCKS IN CASE YOU WANNA KNOW THERE IS
A AN ATTACK ON TITANS MOVIE TWO(NOT ANIMATED IT SUCKS
don't WATCH IT) - leafstar
I remember this show! Rin Okumura is such a cool guy and is one of the best anime I have ever seen from A-1 Pictures (my most favorite being Sword Art Online). Anyways, Blue Exorcist has some of the most interesting characters in anime and puts it into a 25-episode anime series! - ModernSpongeBobSucksV 2 Comments
Okay, you're probably rolling your eyes right now at why I added Sword Art Online here. But let me try to explain why I recommend this anime. Let's begin. Sword Art Online has one of the most interesting premises in anime, mixes a good balance of action and romance, awesome animation and fighting scenes, a diverse arc-storytelling ranging from a survival game with two star-crossed lovers to a classic rescue-the-princess story with a satisfactory ending, cyberpunk mystery, a tearjerking arc between Asuna and an exclusive-arc character, and a little touch of comedy and drama. While incest, poor execution, fanservice and Gary Stu are what a lot of haters like to bash the series for, Sword Art Online is truly an enjoyable anime. And the villains (yes, even Sugou) are some of the best villains I have seen in anime. Highly recommended for gamers and everyone alike. It's too sad that this anime gets a lot of hate, unfortunately. I would rank this as great as Fairy Tail. While Sword Art ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Won't ever be as much of a gem like Cowboy Bebop or Samurai Champloo or Ghost in the Shell, but Sword Art Online is one of those anime that gets you interested in anime. For me, after watching awesome anime like Attack on Titan and Gurren Lagann, this was the anime that finally made me a fan of anime. While it may not be the best anime ever, that doesn't mean it's bad. Sword Art Online has about everything you'd expect in anime. Like I said, might not be as good as Cowboy Bebop, but DEFINITELY a great way to get into anime. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Tired of long transformation sequences and long fights?
Tired of stupid filler episodes?
Need an anime that has only 25 episodes for first season?
Do you love video games?
Do you love fast-paced, action-packed sword fights?
Do you love romance?
Do you love awesome animation and soundtrack music?
If the answer is yes to all of them, then Sword Art Online is the anime for you! One of the best anime I have ever seen since Gurren Lagann and Attack on Titan! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Allright, while madoka is a good anime, my brother hated anime, and now he actually got into it! While I'm more of the darker type (ex; puella magi madoka magica), which is the reason he hated anime, he actually gave this one a shot!V 5 Comments
Please keep it above Boku no Pico! Please! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I love sailer moon!
Whys this on here? - Skullkid755
It usually feels different from most anime, so even if you don't like anime, if you like cartoons, then maybe perhaps then you should like this then in my opinion then. - HeavyDonkeyKong
I'm pretty sure most people who don't like anime don't like Pokemon. Come on, vote Cowboy Bebop or Death Note instead of this. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I loved watching it.
I only voted this to keep boku no pico down. - Skullkid755V 1 Comment
