Somehow I'm think TS want something more casual rather a fantasy or adventure title... Maybe something with comedy aspect and with teenage non/mild-romance relationship where they can laugh and chat together awhile watching it.
That why I'm recommend Ookiku Furikabutte at my first recommendation, basically that are adaptation from baseball manga written by women author, so male-to-male relationship on this title is kinda interesting for a girl to watch it (don't worry its not a BL) and you will get fun together with your sister because the jokes is funny, the baseball game itself fascinating to watch, and maybe you two have a fun discussion about you and another-male relationship whether like shown in that anime too or not, or you can try Hyakko (if your sister age is 12-or so)too, if you two enjoy Minami-ke surely can enjoy this one too.

why not

Shounen Onmyouji may be another choice.

I keep thinking of new ones everyday, lol.

Those recommend me KissxSis and Koi Kaze.... don't you guys have heart (, -___-), . What if i really didn't know what are they about.... xD
"Liking your own sister is just a fantasy of guys who don't have one" - Arararagi. I loves her as a family member through, but even I realised that i'm a bit overprotective.....

Anyway.... she's 15, quite close to your guess there. Walt Disney recently started to target teens and I seriously hate them with all my guts since all of my favourite childhood cartoons became cash-cows with all those new crappy episodic sequences.

Thank guys the list was quite long, let's see:
Quote:
ARIA (too slice-of-life even for me few years ago, may pick it up sometime through)
Sketchbook ~Full Colors (same )
Umi Monogatari (pretty good in my book, but i'm not sure if girls will like the shj-ai aspect of it?)
Summer Wars (already in my definitely watch, i may call up my brother when we did too)
Toradora! (can't bear to rewatch it again)
Code Geass (failed to get through once, and was spoiled too much)
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (i like it, but wouldn't it be too "moe" for girl?)
Hayate the Combat Butler (we both already are reading the manga)
Read or Die (the last time we watch on that anime cable channel, i was annoyed with how she keeps asking if Anita and Maggie was yuri. Well i want to tell her "yes", but i'm not sure if she can enjoy yuri as much as i do. So i kept my silence)
Magic Knight Rayearth (sorry, the only group i hate in the history of anime/manga is CLAMP)
Windy Tales( the art is a bit weird)
Higepiyo ( i will personally pass)
Noein(failed to get through once)
Saiunkoku Monogatari (showed her once, both she and I failed at ep 3)
Twelve Kingdoms(pretty good rank in my book, would girl like it through?)
Claymore ( i doubt if she would like it)
Ookiku Furikabutte & Cross Game (my guess is she would complaint as she do not know the rule)
Princess Tutu (would it be too childish?)
Hyakko (watched it, seriously loved it. Do girls like this kind of show through?)
Nijuu Mensou no Musume (it was interesting but i stalled it for a long time, may pick it up then),
So let's see:
1st options: Dennou Coil, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0
2nd options: Shion no Ou, Chi's Sweet Home, Angelic Layer, Tweeny Witches,Shounen Onmyouji
3rd options: Kaleido Star, Crest of the Stars, Nodame Cantabile, Moribito

Anyone wanna narrow my list down? Let's just add Bakemonogatari in as well but not sure if harem show could interest girl

You see. I can spend time to watch fairly interesting show, and she probably would not mind if i recommend. But i want something really interesting that both of us can really enjoy (which so far was only Minami-ke and The girl who leapt through time.

PS: Of course Ghibli movies was my first try. Not only it failed to interest her, it failed to interest me too (in my case mostly i felt all of Ghibli ending unsatisfied). btw i would never get close even with a stick to unhappy ending such as "5 cm per second"

Well, I know my sisters always liked Tenchi Universe, so I guess harems (with low fanservice) can appeal to girls

Blah my recommendation not even considered
I'm guess you pass it because the baseball eh... But I'm still believe that a perfect title to watch with your sis, ah... I want to have little sister too...

Btw your 1st options already rite, but I'm still have a little doubt about Dennou Coil, maybe its too complex.

Yeah, I could not laugh at those series that pokes fun at brother-sister relationships if I had one, that's for sure.

I think they are okay if the protagonist is desirable, as in not a total loser.

Yeah, my mistake, i missed the name of Shounen Onmyouji and Ookiku Furikabutte when talked about baseball. Since she do not know anything about the rule. May try through but not sure if i can be success.

About all the siscon thing.... If it has a chance of happen, then well i probably would feel kind of uncomfortable or slightly offensive . But yeah i don't think of her as anything out of a younger sister, so feel free to poke fun about it. In fact if you know me in real life, most of the guys here probably can find some good siscon materials from us since she cling to me quite a bit.
However, i have a switch at how people keeps poking fun at me and my cousin, so never mention cousin incest in my presence

So yeah: Dennou Coil, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Nijuu Mensou no Musume, Hyakko..... one of them would be my next try. Could try Bakemonogatari first since i think it have a high chance of failure. Free to give out more comment

Bakemonogatari probably isn't even worth trying...

A late recommendation: Arakawa Under The Bridge

Kemono no Souja Erin might fit.

Ah... forgot to mention that she really like Yotsuba! and Azumanga Daioh as well. The manga through.

Suddenly remember that when have a look at Kemono no Souja

Well I assume one of the reasons is, based on Yotsuba and AzuDai, is that one of the main protagonists is very young?

Going on that, your best bet is to start off with the recommendations that have a main character that's either really young or early teens.

I'll take a shot in the dark and recommend Aishiteruze Baby.

Last Exile might be worth looking into. It doesn't really have anything I'd call inappropriate, and it's a fun show for most ages.

Sounds like your sister is one for slice of life with a bit of comedy, so it'll be worth checking out Ichigo Mashimaro.

Let's see:
Fukatoi Alternative (comedy, some light-romance, story-line may be a bit confusing)
Seitokai no Ichizon (full comedy and slice of life! I think you and your sister will love this)
Great Teacher Onizuka (not sure if it's appropriate or not, it's quite old but has pretty much a majority of the main genres combined, very long too)
~including the Live Action~
Seirei no Moribito (great plot and fighting)

Just a few to throw out there.

Hidamari Sketch has a lot in common with Azumanga Daioh though the artwork is much more stylized since it's by SHAFT/Shinbo.

As for Twelve Kingdoms and/or Claymore, my daughter watched and enjoyed both of those when she was around your sister's age, but she also plays JRPGs and isn't put off by bloodshed. I'd strongly recommend Twelve Kingdoms if you promise me you'll hang tough through the first half-dozen episodes or so until a certain, fairly unusual character appears. It gets progressively more compelling after that.

Glad to see Kemono no Sou-ja Erin hasn't fallen off the list.

That's exactly what I was going to recommend after reading the first post, especially since she liked Minami-ke. Minami Kana is Miu's older version after all

And considering her tastes, I'd say Hidamari Sketch and Sketchbook are the best recommendations here. Also seconding Dennou coil. Twelve Kingdoms is amazing, but I'm not sure it will suit her tastes. Still, it might be good to broaden her horizons.

As for something that wasn't recommended yet: how about School Rumble?

Sorry guys, if I show you my long watched, stalled and dropped list, then i guess no one would bother to recommend after looking through it. I will tired myself out looking through also

New list then:
Arakawa Under The Bridge ( have no idea what is it about, i like Shaft through)
Kemono no Souja (look good)
Last Exile (look good too)
Fukatoi Alternative (i like the art and plot -> 1st option, i don't like the original Fukatoi though)
Aishiteruze Baby( the plot is interesting)
Ichigo Mashimaro (really? It's in my "want to watch list" as well -> 1st option)
Seitokai no Ichizon & Great Teacher Onizuka (i watched both... but it feels kind of uncomfortable for me if i sit next to my sisters when they play dirty jokes)
Hidamari Sketch (i really like Hidamari Sketch as well... could be a good recommendation)
Skip Beat (some one please tell me that it's not too much shoujo... then i would put it into 1st option. )
School Rumble (showed her once, she seems to like it for few hours, then completely forgot about it)

The problem of Sketchbook is i can't get through it xD
Now i have quite a long list actually. Any recommendation to cut them down somehow? Like the case with Bakemonogatari

PS: here is the new list

Skip Beat is shoujo, but I think anyone can like it. Some romance but mostly comedy
