Look I get it. From an outsider’s perspective, anime is nothing but esoteric tropes and fanservice-y nonsense. While I won’t deny that both of those accusations are accurate in the case of many shows, to dismiss the entire medium whole cloth is a bit unfair. Many series may cater to niche audiences, but with the insane amount of of animation that Japan puts out, there is an abundance of classics which fully utilize the form and tell stories unlike what can be found anywhere else. Making the transition can be tough, but I’ve put together a list of three shows that are perfect for the newbies, along with a few other recommendations as well.
