A silent voice, I’ve shown this movie to like ten of my family and friends and every single one has loved it so far.


HyperRag123

Perfect Blue, if I don't think they'll mind a serious one like that.


Mastap33ce

Grave of the fireflies A Silent Voice Perfect Blue Tokyo Godfathers One of these depending on what mood the person in question wants to watch.


Miidas-92

Depends entirely on the person, but if it was a 100% blind choice, and I didn't know whether I was recommending something to a kid/teenager/adult, I'd go with **Spirited Away**.


CarolineLuvsU

Dont forget Howls Moving Castle!!


Mikan_Appreciator

Porco Rosso (Eng Dub) A Silent Voice is excellent as well, but more emotionally demanding


OldFartMaster10K

Your Name


granger744

Too sad


PJRama1864

Something from Studio Ghibli.


pikachu_sashimi

Mononoke Hime


JerryTheMemeMouse

Probably "Your Name"


Kmlkmljkl

out of the ones i've watched probably akira


Redburyva

Spirited Away


vagabondeluxe

Sprited away


Xawfire

Your Name is the safest answer. They tried to convince me with a ghibli movie (the one with the young girl who turns into a old lady) and i literally fell asleep. Thank god i didn't give up after that


Jcpayne93

Depends on if I know their personality and what they generally like Action/Thriller: Redline Drama/Romance: Your Name Unknown/Other: Spirited Away


Yakuza-wolf_kiwami

Promare


PinKTheGoat

This needs to go higher


sanosake1

Akira


Background_Ad4325

Depending on the mood: Your Name, Ghost in the Shell, Wolf Children, Spirited Away, or Akira.


namrucasterly

Kizumonogatari I They'd be so weirded but intrigued they'd watch the other 2 parts and once they finish, it's done.


panosk1304

Depends on what the other person likes thought. Cant think of a standalone that would make some hooked in anime. For me if i want to show people how great som anime can be i chose AoT since the starting episodes are really interesting to getbyou hooked and if you want to thinkit about a movie you have at least 4 episodes of time.

Akira is probably the most likely to appeal to a non anime watcher as long as they don’t hate action films. Not saying Akira is just action before people try come for me.


Jcpayne93

The problem with showing Akira first is that the art style from the 80's can be a turn off to people. Not saying it isn't good, but 80s art can be rough for a casual/beginner watcher.


maximus_md

Interesting point; it’s actually one of my favourite art styles but I guess it could be off putting for teens


Rosstheboss1211

My first anime was 5 centimeters per second and that got me hooked lol


AAAAdragon

Demon Slayer movie: Mugen Train


ThePillsburyPlougher

Spirited away, duh


pappypapaya

I'd probably just fuck with them and make them watch End of Evangelion with no context.


123HOGRIDER456

Your name. It was the reason why I started watching anime.


Epilex__

Depends on the person.
