Unhappy Kid wants to watch animes...help!!!!

One of my cousins who is a 10 year old, has seen me watching animes. I showed her one piece, vampire knight and La corda d'oro. By the looks of it, she wants to watch romance animes but i don't want to show her an anime with any echii or yuri/yaoi (in other words, inappropriate things) I would gladly accept any suggestions. Please refrain from listing really kiddie shows or she will notice and get angry at me.

Thanks!!!

What is the difference between this thread and your previous thread? You mean minus the drama element?

Anyway, I suppose you could show her....Clannad, Kaichou wa Maid sama, Hanasakeru Seishounen, Hakuouki, Ouran,Earl&Fairy and Toradora?

But seeing that your cousin is a 10 year old kid....and judging by the fact that the animes you listed have amples of bishounens, Earl and Fairy as well as Hanasakeru Seishounen should be at the top of your list. Hakuouki is also full of bishies, but romance is really just one part of it. Plus, we don't want to corrupt a 10 year old kid with swords, blood and vampire swordsman, do we?

Not really, anything is good but must have romance (she wants that) and no inappropraite stuff. And yes...don't want to corrupt her like that. Not at this age. Hope i made sense.

Then cross out Hakuouki. The rest is just fine.

Kemono no Souja Erin is a beautiful anime for a ten year old to watch.

Here are some other threads on this subject from the past:
http://forums.animesuki.com/tags.php?tag=girls

I second Kemono no Sou-ja Erin though I recommend pre-screening through episode seven before deciding if it's appropriate, preferably with your aunt or uncle as well. I suggest involving her parents in any recommendations you might give her.

I'll also recommend Dennou Coil. All the kids are your cousin's age peers. As it's unlicensed, though, it does raise the issue of whether you want to introduce this young girl to watching illegal material. I'd also consider how her parents would feel about this.

I recommend Kimi Ni Todoke (aka "Reaching You") most highly for this.

It's a very sweet and innocent romance story told from the girl's perspective. Target audience was teenage girls, but perfect for a precocious tween.

Cross Game would also be a good choice if she's more of a tomboy. Particularly if she likes baseball. This one is an all ages targeted show. The first episode takes place in fifth grade, so be sure to watch at least 3 episodes in the first sitting so she knows it's not a kids show. Episodes are free online (with commercials) at Viz.

If she wants more action with only a little bit of romance and likes sci-fi, Crest of the Stars might be a good choice. The romance tends to be subtext until the third season.

Whisper of the Heart and the Girl Who Leapt Through Time are good anime movies that have romance.

Clannad is probably okay, although After Story (the second season) is a bit of a downer for a ten year old.

Hmm...the other way to look at it is that she will love her dad even more

I recommend Gakuen Alice. And to reach into the classics bin, Pita Ten.

Toradora, Kaichou wa maid sama, Special-A I think for the most part should be fine. Darn, its hard to think of completely clean anime romances nowadays.

I'll agree with Kemono no Souja Erin and Kimi ni Todoke. Full Moon wo Sagashite too maybe, but I have doubts about kids today. I think Air and particularly 5 cm aren't suitable for 10 year olds.

Skip Beat! should work too.

I came back to suggest Cross Game (I've enjoyed rewatching the first half-dozen or so episodes in the past couple of days) and saw Sackett had not surprisingly beaten me to it.

I'd argue against Air as well. For a girl of ten, I'd much rather show her spunky girls as main characters than a weak and sickly girl like Misuzu. Cross Game's Aoba has a mind of her own, to say the least, and a strong commitment to baseball and self-improvement. Other good role models in age-appropriate shows are Erin, Misaki in Angelic Layer, all three main girls in Dennou Coil, and Chizuko in Nijuu Mensou no Musume. Angelic Layer has dubbing; the rest do not. It's also out-of-print and no longer streamed. There are a few remaining copies at Amazon; might be a nice gift for your cousin.

You'll (duh) find few bigger Cross Game fans than me, but I honestly don't think a ten year-old would appreciate it - I think it's romanticizing the series to say they would. Honestly, most 10 year-olds would likely find CG boring, in my view. Just $.02 worth.
