If I could choose one show for my family/friends to watch, it would be Mushishi. There's no fanservice, it's episodic, it has a good dub, it's intelligent without being pretentious, the soundtrack and visuals are pleasant, and it follows the basic medical drama format of many Western shows. Literally the perfect series to convince people you're not a weirdo for watching anime.

Honestly, not too bad at all. Although it is occasionally overtly sexual.

It's not too embarrassing. Could be worse.

On a related note, I often see nightmares about watching TV with my grandfather when some anime starts showing. He's the kind of unreasonable guy, who's really critical with TV-shows and considers most popular western series of today to be "insane". And if you watch those shows, then there's obviously something wrong with you as well. He's actually kinda like /a/non in that sense.

I did see him watch dubbed Totoro one day on TV, though he fell asleep in the middle of it, but that's probably the most he could handle.

When did showing some skin become such a terror to "normal" people?

As long as you showed it to someone young, you should be fine. I only watched a bit of the OVA, but it has an university setting, right? Sex jokes alone should be fine as long as it doesn't sexualize children.

I think they would like Mushishi.

I think it would be fine if you picked one of the less juvenile comedy episodes. The srsbusiness fighting arcs or the lolpoop episodes would be embarrassing to show to a relative as they're more obviously aimed at children. I wouldn't want my family to know that I watched it.

On the other hand, Gintama at its worse is more palatable than Ro-Kyu-Bu.

They might wonder why I'm watching a show about little girls in school but it's not overly sexualized and has some broadly appealing comedy. I'd be alright.

I have already watched Sword of the Stranger with my dad, I gave my sister a bunch of Ghibli movies and other gateway series that aren't too violent and I gave my cousin Kino no Tabi as a birthday present not so long ago (turned out he had already seen it but was grateful to get it in physical form).

Already tried to watch it with my mom. She only made it 2 episodes and dropped it because of the zombies. I remember being 10 and she showed me Return of the Living Dead 2.
