So, I'm looking for some age appropriate animes, for my twelve year old sister. Lately she's been complaining to me about how she is really bored, so I decided to search for another one for her, and I was wondering if anyone had any good suggestions. Just to let you know, she doesn't like a lot of violence, and just to give you an idea of what she likes, here are a list of animes she has watched. She has seen Haikyuu, Fruits Basket, Yona of the Dawn, K-On, Angel Beats, Free, and Yumeiro Patissiere. Any suggestions would be very helpful, thank you!

Most of the stuff available through Crunchyroll is pretty appropriate, but...

Given that she watched Free! (and I assume the movies), why not All Out!! ( http://www.crunchyroll.com/all-out ), which is about young men enjoying rugby, or Clean Freak! Aoyama-kun ( http://www.crunchyroll.com/clean-freak-aoyama-kun ), which is about soccer.

K-ON!? How about http://www.crunchyroll.com/sasami-magical-girls-club ?

Out of the shows I have watched, I would recommend:

It sounds like she is a fan of slice of life, which happens to be my favorite genre.

Toradora!, a romantic comedy with 25 episodes and an OVA. Great rom com with great chemistry with all the lead characters.

Hyouka: A slow burner of a show, with some great pay offs. It is technically a slice of life, but the cast does not really sit around doing fun little tasks. Rather they solve all the little mysteries the average person would think about every day. The way the character dynamics and mystery build ups are allows the characters and us to learn more about them. It is kind of like K-On, with how their little actions speak volumes about them. It is a bit wordy, but it can be engrossing if you get into the mysteries, as well as the characters and their personalities.

Tamayura: A show not too different from K-On. This focuses on a girl named Fuu who moves back into the town her late father loved. She decides to pick up her father's hobby of photography. Along with her new friends, Fuu learns a lot about the intricacies of life and begins to move forward after the years her family was in grief. It is a very uplifting series that only gets better after the original ovas. The first season hitotose, second season more aggressive and the 4 part graduation photo movies all build on what Fuu and her friends go through to create a great story.

The manga of Fruits Basket: If she has only watched the anime, I would absolutely recommend the original manga of Fruits Basket. The manga continues on from where the anime left off, and I feel the rest of the story really deserves to be read. The art improves as it goes on, the characters become more fleshed out, the plot thickens with more stuff revealed about the family, the usual stuff. Only thing I would advise is to start from the beginning of the manga. To not reveal anything, the anime did make changes which are not congruent with developments that happen later in the manga. It is safer and more accessible to get into the manga if you start it from the first chapter.

Sound Euphonium!: This is the kinds series you watch to see character development at its finest. The show is about a high school band club's journey, but the real story is with the characters in that band. The best way I can put it is that as you witness the band members grow as people throughout the school year, you also witness their progress as a band, which is a real draw if you ask me. In my opinion, this show gets and understands people. Chances are if either of you two watch the show, there will be at least one character you will understand and relate to. In a nutshell, this show has fantastic character writing, and that is the best reason I can recommend it.

Aria: the slice of life that got me into slice if life. The best thing I can say about this show besides its memorable characters. setting visuals and music (ESPECIALLY THE MUSIC) is the atmosphere, and the progression. This is not the kind of show you watch back to back in a short time. It is crucial to take your time with it, I usually watch 1 episode in a day before bed. The episodes are self-contained, and in each one you are guaranteed a very relaxing atmosphere that you can kick back and relax to. The music is some of the most soothing I have ever heard in my life, with how its perfectly synced up to the show. And the progression. Season 1's focus on introducing its characters, seasons 2's on world building and season 3's on the future come together to create a journey for not just the characters, but also the vierwer. You become just as immersed in Neo Venezia as Akari and her friends. And it is an experience I am ever unlikely to forget, especially with how positive and inspirational the show is about life.

So TL;DR:

Hyouka: Character dynamics and revelations layed out in just as clever and subtle a manner as the mysteries they solve
Tamayura: Witnessing a girl grow into a headstrong woman following the loss of someone important to her
Fruits Basket Manga: She watched the anime, so why not get the complete story?
Eupho: Character Development at its finest
Aria: Immersion and optimistic messages about life taken to 11. A show to watch when you need a pick me up.

So yeah that's my recommendation list. If you have any questions or want more suggestions (I simply based mine in this post based on the those shows you specifically listed), please no not hesitate to message me. And with that, I really hope you and your sis enjoy these shows. They are all gems as far as I am concerned.

With that, you guys take care!
