Hey everyone.

I'm pretty new to all things Anime and joined crunchyroll this year.

I've watched a few series of things and would like some recomendations.

I've sat down to watch "NEW GAME" and "SHOW BY ROCK" with my 8 year old daughter and we both loved them.
I would like to know if there are any more other shows like these we could watch together you could reccomend?

Also just for me (Daddy) i sat down to watch through BERSERK, and do also love me a bit of Senguko Basara style anime. Are there any other shows like these i could watch?

Lastly the BEST thing i think i've watched is Season one of PSYCHO PASS. I have season 2 to now watch for Christmas. I've got Ghost in the Shell to watch too, but are there any more GREAT shows like this that feature not just good story telling, but GREAT story telling.

Oh and i also review games, and get sent them for free to write up about, so any game related series would be nice to know. ( Looking forward to the new BERSERK game and series 2 early 2017 )

i know a few series for your kid, but you may or not find it enjoyable yourself, since it's aimed at kids as the main demographic.

Aikatsu!
Pripara
Shugo Chara
Tokyo Mew Mew
Precure series

the first two series are about idols and music.

I feel like I should be able to come up with something, for you, but at the moment my mind isn't working that well.

But I did want to alert you that I've moved this thread to our Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

I will gleefully second the Shugo Chara recommendation. It might not be the OP's cup of tea, but I encountered it first as an adult and still liked it a whole lot.

You and your daughter would both probably enjoy Non Non Biyori, it is really relaxing and one of my personal favorites as an adult lol.

I recommend the following anime: (please give them a chance even if they're a bit long, watch when you can and as much as you can)

Fullmetal Alchemist
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
Rurouni Kenshin
InuYasha
InuYasha The Final Act

(NOTE: Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Rurouni Kenshin are the only ones currently available on Crunchyroll. You'll have to do some searching for the others and hopefully they will be on a legal streaming site.)

My daughter (6) loves One Piece. She's been watching for a bout a year now and still no where close to catching up.

Besides that we've watched Chi's Sweet Home. She also watched Pretty Cure, I think the last 2 seasons.

If you like war and action try Yona of the Dawn and Arslan. Both are on CR.

Just watch Hirugashi and then be sad you'll never watch something so awesome.

But, if you do watch Hirugashi, it is imperative you keep watching, even if you don't understand what's going on in the first few episodes.

It's totally worth it.
