So, you want to start watching anime but have no idea where to begin? That's understandable. After all, anime isnt a genre, its a medium in its own right, complete with different styles, sub-genres and target audiences.
Honestly, it can be pretty intimidating trying to find something thats right for you, or even knowing where to begin your search. The sheer scope and variety of anime can be nothing short of daunting for anyone who hasnt already taken the dive.
Death Note and Hamtaro couldnt be more different; neither could Gurren Lagann and Attack on Titan, or Fullmetal Alchemist and Mobile Suit Gundam. Its a complex world; a beautiful and bizarre one that will fully reward its viewership, but it can be a little jarring for newbies.
Theres no shame whatsoever in finding yourself a little lost. If anime has always both intrigued and terrified you, then these are the series to get started with. Some of them are basic, entry-level shows, others a little more complex, but all are perfectly accessible if youre willing to meet them half-way.
