I have a friend who I feel would love anime if he would give it a chance. He lets some of the common misconceptions and stereotypes of anime keep him from watching some fantastic works of entertainment.
I want to introduce anime to him, but I will probably only be able to convince him to watch one show, due to his current lack of interest.
What show should I use to showcase anime in its glory to my friend? I want something that's interesting on multiple levels (violent but also mentally stimulating, etc.). Unfortunately, it probably has to be dubbed in English (eventually he'll get to the good stuff). Does anyone have any recommendatons? My current ideas were Attack on Titan, Steins;Gate, etc.
