Iconic Animos

A discussion last night brought up the subject of how people who are into anime and people who aren't have very different sets of tropes and mental scripts for how situations should go, and we started trying to figure out what shows would make good introductions to animu tropes for non-animu people; iconic or ur-animes, if you will.

I think we only managed to come up with Slayers and possibly some of Takahashi's oeuvre. Anyone here have any suggestions?

(I suppose a lot would depend on the age of the animu fans as well- by which I mean which age of animu they had contact with, since I'm pretty sure someone who got into it in the 80s has a completely different set of tropes from someone who's into it now.)

Also on Dreamwidth. If you feel like commenting there, go for it. (comment count unavailable other people went for it.)
