A Certain Scientific Railgun

A Certain Scientific Railgun is a much better counterpart to Magical Index that feels like an intriguing cop show set in an X-Men-like universe. It’s still got a lot of anime pervery sins though.

Goblin Slayer

A visceral love letter to Dungeons & Dragons, high fantasy, and tabletop RPGs that highlights the ugliness and toll such a world would take on its characters.

Fate/Stay Night

Definitely not a good show to have be your introduction to the Fate universe, even though it does do decent world-building. The music isn’t bad though, and if you like Fate and have seen the other adaptations, it won’t be a total waste of time.

You Are Umasou

While definitely a movie designed for children, there's a good amount of solid love that doesn't make it feel patronizing or pandering. A very cute, sweet, and emotional movie for all ages.

Naruto

While it has iconic moments and largely set the stage for anime and shonen in particular, Naruto does not age well; there are plenty of better shows. It is very culturally relevant to be familiar with, however.
