What's the ONE anime you think everyone should watch? In other words, if you could make everyone watch just one series/movie/ova, what would it be?

Well it'd have to be my favorite, The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi, no matter how overrated people think it is. =)

I was going to say One Piece, as it's my favorite anime, but then again it's popular enough that quite a few people are familiar with it already. I'm thinking Terra e... would be a better choice, as it's nearly as brilliant and much less popular.

If it was just one anime, all the way through, it'd be hard to say.

I mean, each anime is so diverse in its themes, it's just not possible to have one anime cover them all. On top of that, some really good anime might have a bad effect on people's outlook on anime. Furthermore, each anime has its own appeals, so it would be difficult to choose an anime for such a wide audience to view.

But under these circumstances, I suppose I would have to choose a well balanced anime, that has its own share of action and drama, and though it's not my favourite anime it's definately one of my favourites and with the ability to apply to a large audience.

So, my top choice would be Planetes. Though, given enough thought, I might switch to an anime with a hefty animation budget, since pretty things tend to draw people more than overall good stories (despite that being one of the major selling points of most anime).

Bebop. I can never get tired of Cowboy Bebop. Though I do agree, as mentioned by others above me, that Mushishi should be seen by everyone.

Is that before or after we rip our eyes out?

Right now, I'd go with Baccano! or Kaiji, probably the latter since too many people write it off for the art style or summaries that don't do the series justice.

I'd probably make everyone watch every episode of Pokemon, assuming that I'm doing this to piss people off. 1000+ episodes of nothing ftw.

Since it's not exactly a "whats your favorite anime" thing...
I think everyone would benefit from seeing kino's journey. And if you consider spreading a bit of insanity around the world to be good thing, then NGE definently.

I was going to say that everyone should see Higurashi, but that's really popular anyways.

So I'll say go see This Ugly Yet Beautiful World because it is very underappreciated.

Ouran High School Host Club. I know a lot of different people who have seen it (Girly girls, manly men, etc) and they all like it. I even know people who do not watch anime regularly (or don't watch anime at all) who liked it.

GTO, probably. It's a timeless classic comedy.

Most people here seem to only be looking at very recent series... IMO a series has to withstand the test of time. Give it at -least- three years and see if anybody still remembers it.

I'm gonna have to go with The Vision of Escaflowne. it's one of the great anime titles of the 90's. which is saying a lot since that decade featured a lot of amazing shows. Escaflowne manages to appeal to a wide audience because it overlaps several genres. action, fantasy, and throw a little bit of romance as well.

if only we didn't have to pick one, this'll be one of my other choices.

If it were to spread the love- Kino no Tabi

If to get them into anime- Terra e... or One piece.

If it were to torture- i like the idea of Boku no Pico or Doraemon as previous people have said~ 8D ...
