Upscaling - i would give a chance to xxEDIx, for downscaling i would select spline based filters (spline 36 or 64).
Which resizing filter is best depends on your source. If your source is very sharp you don't want to use a resizing filter that sharpens (Bicubic, Lanczos, SplineXX, etc.) -- it will create over sharpening halos and blocky artifacts will be accentuated. nnedi3 (one of the "xxEDIx" filters pandy mentioned) or nnedi3_rpow2 is pretty good for upscaling but it's much slower than the regular resizing filters.
If you source has blocky artifacts you should us a deblocking filter before resizing.
For Anime you may consider Waifu2x interesting but it is painfully slow (nnedi3 is significantly faster when compared to waifu).
