This ones not
And by the way I recommend "If..." it's one of the easiest mainline titles
Or "nocturne" the most popular
All the smt games before Persona 1 and Jack bros. (if you count that) are untranslated and will require you an emulator

"Easiest" they say.
Anyway, 4. Original SMT 4. Or Strange Journey. Both are available on the 3DS E shop and Strange Journey is avalible for a DS emulator if you're really that much of a cheapskate.
As the second Dx2 stan on the site, I'm legally obligated to say Dx2.
All jokes aside 3 or 4 seems to be the general go-to answer. I personally haven't played any mainline, only Devil Survivor (which is also a decent game to ease into if you're the kind that likes SRPGs).
I just realized that this is a week old thread but hey, no sense in deleting what I've typed.
