I suspect this question gets asked a lot here and I apologize in advance.
I hate anime. I always thought it looked gay and stupid and that the kids who liked it were weird. (I'm not a Chad, and I wasn't like bullying these kids, I was just always very uninterested in the whole thing especially since the fanbase is uncontrollably autistic).
For some reason, the thought of anime popped into my head this morning and I thought - why not give it a shot? I like the idea of a cartoon or animated film or series that's targeted at adults and has a real story.
And so, my question is, what do you all recommend as good entry-level pleb-friendly anime? I tried watching Fullmetal Alchemist a long time ago and I enjoyed it, but I never got around to finishing it. Finally, subs or dubs? Obviously, it's personal preference, I just wanted to get everyone else's opinion on this. I'm leaning towards Japanese audio and English subtitles. I feel like it would lead to better translations and an overall more pleasurable viewing experience, even if it may get a little annoying to read them.
