The problem with your hypothetical is that we don't really live in a vacuum and the manga, and subsequently the anime, have existed for over 2 decades, it's highly improbable that anyone going to watch it won't have had some exposure to the source works. Those that have somehow done this are probably going to find it pretty much all flash and no substance.
You might be right, you might not. Doubt we'll ever know, I am considering it (although not currently subscribed to Netflix) and I know nothing about source materials. Anime is very hit and miss for me, seen some I really liked, seen a lot more I couldn't finish because I thought it was so bad.
