Anime to recommend to people who do not watch anime

Anime fans have voted for anime that they would recommend to people who do not watch anime at all, which could be possibly used as a kind of a ice-breaker with anime or just as a regular TV series. The first rank is not very surprising given the story of Clannad, but the fourth rank might be a bit of a surprise, at least for me as I wouldn’t recommend it for non-anime viewers. Very surprising is also Yosuga Sora at the 16th rank. Would you recommend it to anyone who is not acquainted with anime/manga world? I would not! Not if I wanted to retain some positive relationship with them. What would be the series that you would recommend to people who don’t watch anime?
