Anime Series Shows
Recently...about the past 2 years. I've been watching some anime series on Crunchyroll and Netflix. Mostly, been watching with my daughter and wondering what others have seen or are currently seeing.

We started with Naruto and finished that series and now are watching the Boruto series. Also, watching Black Clover and Haikyu!.
Food Wars! Shokugeki no soma. However, scenes are a little raunchy for my daughter.
We've been enjoying Boruto and Black Clover as well as Haikyu (since is it volleyball theme and she love volleyball.
We are waiting for Voltron to have another season on Netflix.
Are there any other series that you are watching that is good and also appropriate for a teen girl?

Started watching Log Horizon and on episode 3 so I'm trying to feel it out if I like to continue watching it.

RE: Anime Series Shows
Hmmm

Ghost in the Shell as a all encompassing series has 4 movies and 3 "seasons" worth of shows.
--the seasons are : GitS SAC, GitS SAC 2nd Gig, and the "3rd" season is based on the Borders series.
--Borders series culminates in movie #4
**Borders series is kind of set up as a prequel series and movie.
GitS is kind of a stand alone movie.
GitS 2 is another movie following the events of GitS.
GitS SAC and SAC 2nd Gig lead into GitS 3.

If you liked The Matrix, Blade Runner, and other movies that explore the man vs. machine vs. AI philosophical divide you will thoroughly enjoy the entirety of the series as it currently sits.

Saw the teen girl angle after I typed all of this. Hmm the first two movies have a little nudity but no sex. The 3rd and the 4th movie don't have much, if any nudity. The tv seasons don't really do much on the nudity front. No sex scenes in any of it. Now if she has watched The Matrix and Blade Runner and the like.... then violence won't be anything more than most likely what she has already seen.

I would say that Full Metal Alchemist and its successor Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood are also really solid. Not any more violent than the standard action movie when it has it. The ultra basic set up is the characters use "alchemy spells" to create objects of varying natures. The main story revolves around two brothers who try to use it to bring their mother back but they mess up and one brother gets some souped up appendages and the other has his "soul" transmutated to a suit of armor. The story revolves them trying to get their mom back and how deep the rabbit hole goes with things that tie into other characters and their motivations in the universe, their dad and his own usage of alchemy, and lots of philosophical talk about things. I'd recommend it.

Samurai 7 was pretty darn good. Think of it as a anime inspired remix of Akira Kurosawa's (sp?) Seven Samurai. If you have seen the old black and white original the newer anime version takes nearly the same path but with updated job titles and the "current" anime style.

Cowboy Beebop is great. Lets say its an episodic heist caper series and there is a movie tied to the series too.

Avatar / Legend of Kora are two great series to get into. Avatar is a 4 season long series that is kind of the beginnings of what you get into. The 1 (or 2?) season long LoK series is basically taking where Avatar ended and putting your favorite characters at about 50 years into the future of that universe.

RE: Anime Series Shows
I was always a big fan of Dragonball Z. It picks up after Dragonball and now Goku is an adult. His origins are now explained and there is now a big universe around the story.

I second the recommendation for Cowboy Bebop.

Big O has the same aesthetic but is based on mechs.

Lupin III. A set of capers by the world's greatest thief.

Attack on Titan. Caution, it does involve nudity, but the creatures have no sexual organs. It's not sexual nudity, it's just meant to be unsettling. I'd take a look at about 10 minutes of it to see if you think it's appropriate. It is an excellent show.

One Punch Man. The story of a superhero who is so strong that he is bored of it. Fantastic changes in art style each episode. The show also satirizes the silly things we find in anime like long monologues.

Saw this on NetFlix and watched its first two episodes. A very interesting take on being a super hero and then the absurdity of who he fights and the fact he can dispatch them on one punch is kind of entertaining. I hadn't made up my mind yet to watch further into it though.

Do it. It is amazing and different from all the shounen we are so used to.

Oh, and tell us how many laughts you gave!

Been seeing on Crunchyroll ads for the upcoming Blade Runner 2022.

Seems interesting.

Watched episode #3 and 4. Its like a serious mockumentary on anime. I love the build up of the hero and the villain only for the hero to be so overpowering that he just whups the guy and moves on. IMO, its mostly taking on the BS that is Dragonball Z in that you have a 30m show that takes its 1st 15m to set up a God-like fight and then 15 of the actual fight all the while the main guy is mocking his opponent in the ever so subtle way. That evolutionary scientist episode was hilarious...

I just loved the show. I really missed something out of the shounen lines with great focus on humor. Part of the fun is not Saitama, but the other characters. You can see this through the next episodes or on the manga.

Oh, now that we've talked about shounens, I have to say I really like the path that Black Clover is taking. It is the cliché-story, but it works very well. I recommend it to everyone who likes the genre.

It super aware of the genre. I thought it was a breath of fresh air because it touched on everything that I find super silly about anime.
