Hello,

Could anyone please suggest some anime DVD titles that would be suitable for 14 to 16 year old girls?

Preferably, no fan service or much violence but with romance elements.

cheers.

I don't know if this is up your alley, but Angelic Layer is great.

I've known a few girls to enjoy Full Metal Alchemist, so I'd suggest you try that one. Fruits Basket too maybe.

berserk... -_-' yeah, ah ha, why not get elfen lied whilst your at it... pfft!

serious now...

i'd go with the previous suggestion of fullmetal alchemist, it's a good mix of drama and comedy without getting at all too risqu (plus i know for a fact, that FMA is 'girls anime', since it turned a mate of mines' sister to the otaku side... well a little bit... i was actually surprised when she asked to watch it by name, since she usually despises anime...)

depending on what they like to watch, haibane renmei might be ok too, that and azumanga daioh (azumanga for sure with out question), plus mostly anything from studio ghibli (spirited away, laputa; castle in the sky and kiki's delivery service are 3 that i think would be good for the age group)

as for love hina... i wouldn't have gone for that at all... in fact i'm surprised it even has any female fans, it's THAT male orientated it isn't funny, and i'm male and i even despise it...

My friends sisters are about 14-18 years and they like GTO, Berserk, X, DBZ, and Lovehina.

GTO is their favourite.
Think its his cool atitude that they like.

You cant go wrong with Fruits Basket. Most girls go ga-ga over it.

If the girls thought Love Hina was risque, then I'd say Please Teacher would be too since it does have a fair bit of fanservice.

I suggested Angelic Layer because it's about a little girl who made her own doll and then battles her little doll against other dolls. It sounds a little kiddy but it's still a great series, and I'd recommend it for 14-16 year olds.

Look up `shoujo' --- that pretty well says it all. They are anime aimed at girls: many are aimed at well below that age group, but others are not.

Most anime based on CLAMP titles are shoujo (Chobits is definitely out; Tsubasa Chronicle is also not shoujo, but would likely be just as enjoyable). Kaleido Star is an excellent series, as is Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon ---- though for the latter I would recommend the `uncut' release over the standard one. I am not sure if it is in English or not, but Full Moon wo Sagashite was rather popular, and most people like Studio Ghibli titles.

If they are particulatly mature, they may also like josei titles, though josei anime are pretty rare in English --- if it ever comes out in English, Honey and Clover is highly recommended.

For series, you can't go wrong with Angelic Layer, Azumanga Daioh and Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon, although I am actually quite doubtful that you can still get the Japanese version of the latter. Having bought the first 2 seasons cut/dubbed, and the first 4 seasons uncut/subbed... there's no way I could pick the cut version over the uncut. You might also have some success with His and Her Circumstances.

For movies, I'd say any of the Ghibli titles would be a winner. Except maybe for Grave of the Fireflies, which will definitely make them cry.

Ah! My Goddess

it had to be said

its a fairly comedic romantic type series, you do have your 5 ep ova (1993-1995 i think)

the movie in itself (made 2000) is a standalone and you dont really need to know about the characters, althoug it might help

if you want, you can get the manga, gives you more of a backstory of sorts, and goes more indepth

the Movie is a good one to watch though

I completely forgot about Ah My Goddess and was just about to suggest it when you beat me speedfreak. Razz But yes, it's a romantic type anime, with beautiful goddesses, a bit of humour and best of all, Belldandy.

Stellvia deffinately fits that description perfectly.

Angelic Layer does as well, however I believe it's more suited for the younger ages

Fruits Baskets is a good one. It doesn't have much of a underlying romance, but it's a very emotional show that alot of girls I know liked.

Great Teacher Onizuka is a bit iffy. Some girls will like it, others might not. Onizuka really makes or breaks the show.

I'll have to go think of a few more, but Stellvia and Fruits Baskets I'm sure they'd get a kick out of.

Trust me, those series are <i>not</i> aimed at teenage girls. Quite the opposite, actually.

hey did anyone else notice that stellvia is basically the "space" version of harry potter... ? oh you didn't... hmmm well it must just be me... Razz

stellvia would work good... as would niea under 7... both of which are really easy to enjoy by any age group. i havn't seen angelic layer or much of fruits basket, but they seem to fit...

nope i'd say please teacher is out... along with please twins... both of which are again very male orientated... i'd almost say the same for ah! my goddess, but it's a little more classier than please teacher/twins... (plus the ah! my goddess movie owns all... just for it's orchestrated music alone)... chobits is a wee bit iffy too... again pretty male orientated... (look, any show involving a dorky single male character, and either a harem, a gaggle, a horde or even a punett of pretty girls pinning over him all the time is pretty much out for the target audience)

What about Someday's Dreamers?

It appears to be a "girl goes to magical school" sort of thing...

The studio ghibli movies look to be the safest choice.

Fruits Basket, and Somedays dreamer's too. Maybe this 'magical girl' genre is designed for this target audience?

Stellvia looks like a good story I might get it for myself. I am a bit worried by these girls with little hips and curvy thighs, after the Love Hina experience.

`Magical Girl' anime is predominantly targeted at girls. Titles such as Mahou Shoujo Tai Alice and Akazukin Chacha are aimed at a younger age group, but others are aimed at older teens. There are several notable titles aimed at guys too (including Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto Someday's Dreamers), but they are all always safe for any gender, and usually most age groups.

Uchuu no Stellvia is a pretty safe title: nothing like Love Hina! It is just Harry Potter in space.

My daughter is 22 and still loves to watch Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon. (uncut version in Japanese is heaps better Wink ) and has to her collection the entire series including all movies.

I highly recommend these for that age group:

Fruits Basket
His and Her circumstances
She: The ultimate weapon <--- a real tearjerker
Card Captor Sakura (uncut Japanese version is again better)
Ah! My Goddess
Please Teacher

er.. uh... hmmmm... well stellvia has a bit of "runnin around in tight fitting flight suits" thru out, but the charcter designs are reasonably sensible (plus they make a joke of it at first, when two of the girls and one of the guys come out with towels on over their flight suits...)... i think most anime (especially ones made by gainex for some reason, eva is bad for it, can asuka get any thinner) do the skinny hips and curvey thighs thing, tho put it this way, stellvia is nothing like love hina (it's actually reasonably good)

fullmetal alchemist might be good too... since about the only nudity you see is waste up male nudity (either from Ed, or Major Armstrong), and the character designs are reasonably sensible also, since the original designs were drawn by a woman i spose, plus its 13 voumes long + a movie...

i dunno about somedays dreamers since i gave up after the first disc... Confused

I would not recommend Fullmetal Alchemist to 14 year old girls: that would likely be the last thing they want to see! It is more for 16-18 year old boys. There is way too much violence, blood and gore, and other typical shounen fare for it to be a pass.

While I wouldn't recommend it on this topic (having plenty of violence and not much romance), teenage girls can and do like FmA. There's plenty of emotion, great characters and a good plot. (And bishounen, which is sure to draw the fangirls...)

1. Kaleido Star
2. Scrapped Princess
3. Saiyuki - heard it had a 90-95% female/male fanbase
4. Inu Yasha

I hope these help.

Last I heard, 14-16 year old girls are a fair bit more mature than boys of the same age. So I'd be surprised if they wanted to see magical girl anime at that age. Azumanga Diaoh and His&Her Circumstances go down well with young ladies, as would most titles, really. The age thing aside, virtually all the female anime fans I know watch much the same anime as the guys. Most of them don't have a problem with sex or violence and some of them like it.

Except Initial D. Rabid fangirls might dig girly-men, mecha and ninja, but I've yet to meet one who wanted to watch an anime about cars.

Oh, I totally forgot.... Tiny Snow Fairy Sugar! Seriously, this show is so cute it could almost kill you. If they like pretty things and a sweet story with both humourous and slightly sad moments, they'll love this, just like I did.

hmmmph! your kidding right?...'its a little bit about romance, but it's hard to see the beautiful love story through the overbearing amount of nudity in it... tho it is a good show, i'd lump it in the male viewers category... and the second series... purile nonsence... if you want romance, get ah! my goddess... (the tv series is better, if it ever comes out in australia)

chrono crusade would be pretty good... it's a bit on the violent side at times, but it's got a brilliant story... (plus its got it's funny bits too)

It seems like every second suggestion is a shounen fan service-orientated or violent series. There are some good suggestions in here, but it makes it hard for the OP if they do not know these serials, and as such cannot weed out the ones that are what they are looking for. Suggestions like Fruits Basket and possibly Aa! Megami-sama! are quite good, but titles like Chobits and Ranma 1/2 are a joke in this thread!

Perhaps I am just ranting or venting frustration, but most replies in this forum tend to be closer to `name your favourite series' than `name a series with...': I wonder just how many people here put any thought into their suggestions.

Series I'd definitely show them:
Ah My Goddess - romance/comedy
Fruits Basket - drama/comedy
D.N Angel - drama/romance/action
Haibane Renmei - drama
Studio Ghibli movies - laputa castle in the sky, nausicaa

Shows in the maybe pile:
Someday's dreamers - magic girl/coming of age. Not in the definite pile only because I didn't think it was a good show.
R.O.D the tv - action/drama. I think they would like the relationships between the sisters and not much in the way of hard violence (they use paper to fight)
Escaflowne - mecha/fantasy/romance. Something to show them down the track if the don't mind mecha action. If they like that you could move on to RahXephon which is also mecha/romance.
Full Metal Alchemist - action/drama/comedy. More violence than R.O.D but a great story and great characters.
Scrapped Princess - action/drama/fantasy. Alot depends on what type of shows they like but if they like fantasy then I'd show them this.


Series not to show:
Berserk - violence
Chobits - fanservice
Please Teacher/Twins - fanservice
Burst Angel - mecha/fanservice
Tenjho Tenge - violence
Elfen Lied - violence

I completely forgot about Ah My Goddess and was just about to suggest it when you beat me speedfreak. Razz But yes, it's a romantic type anime, with beautiful goddesses, a bit of humour and best of all, Belldandy.


^___^

:p

yeah also Please Teacher is good as well and also Please Twins too.

Teacher is better than Twins IMO but both are still worth the watch

DNAngel is a good one, I left that off my list by mistake. Chrono Crusade isn't *that* violent...I mean come on. Mostly they only shoot huge gruesome monsters, which doesn't really count. Some less well known anime like zoids, maybe even shinzo??Zero fanservice from what I remember.

i'll make a suggestion thats prolly not gonna work but, meh...

she the ultimate weapon... is prolly one of the most romantic things i have ever seen... tho it's not really funny... it's more like romantic sadness, with a war going on in the background, hence the reason it might be no good... tho theres not really much violence (well not as much as the name would suggest), theres a bit of the harsh reality of war edge to it, but it's not the key focus... and theres no real fanservice either...

Heh, I'm 18 and my parents still get all angry if the tinyest, and I mean the tinyest, little minute bit of fanservice comes up. So, looking through what people have already posted, I'll tell you if I agree with them or not (the ones I have seen, anyway).

Don'ts
* Love Hina
* Chobits
* GTO
* Please Teacher
* Ranma 1/2 (I've only read the manga though, don't know what the anime is like)
* Ah! My Goddess (actually I say this is borderline, it does contain a bit of fanservice but only briefly and not much)
* Chrono Crusade (borderline perhaps? there is fanservice sometimes, but the panty shots are hilarious and not what one would consider fanservice Razz)

Dos
* Cardcaptors (dubbed... subs are a bit iffy)
* Spirited Away
* Nausicaa Valley of the Wind
* Fruits Basket (a definante yes for girls... I don't know if language is a concern but there is a bit of cussing but no actual swearing, and sexual references are there but very minor)
* Sailor Moon
* InuYasha (borderline, brief fanservice in some eps and blood and violence now and then)
* Escaflowne (some blood in some eps, but not extremily violent)
* Zoids (it's mecha, but I'm a girl and I love the series 0__o;; )
