I thought this would be an interesting, novel question.

I've selected 10 different common Asian scripts from various languages in Asia.

Arabic Alphabet (Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Sindh.etc)
Arabic alphabet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Devanagari (Hindi, Marathi, Sanskrit)

Tamil Script (Tamil)

Sinhala Alphabet (Sinhala/Sinhalese)

Burmese brahmic script (Burmese)

Thai alphabet and related scripts (Thai, Khmer, Lao)

Written Chinese (Mandarin, Sinitic languages, Japanese, Korean, minority languages of China)

Japanese writing systems - Hiragana/Katakana (Japanese)

Katakana - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hangul/Chosongul (Korean)

Tibetan Alphabet (Tibetan languages)

My choice would be out of Arabic or Chinese, even though they're so different. Arabic is graceful and flowing, while Chinese looks so complex and interesting and packed with meaning, although I won't pretend I'll ever master it.
