Looking for some Anime
Right I'm looking for some anime to watch in the day with Andy. (for those who don't know, Andy is only 2)
So I'm wanting animes with a good enough storyline to keep me entertained but they need to be suitable for Andy.
Colourful, pretty, kiddy looking etc is a plus.
I have tried him on deathnote but its a bit dark and he gets bored, Monster same thing.
I wanted to try Elfen lied but its a little too gory for a 2 year old I think.
Okay also looking for me and Jolz too.
Higurashi & another were both pretty good.
I have ghost hunts but not tried it yet. I really like the dark, fucked up stuff. Horror, physiological, etc.
I still have Elfen Lied to finish, I got bored of Monster.

Deathnote & Monster for a 2 year old? It would been pretty amazing if he could appreciate those that young!
I'd recommend Ghibli films or standard shounen fare (One Piece, FMA: Brotherhood, Hunter x Hunter, Katekyo Hitman Reborn.. etc).
Hunter x Hunter takes a pretty dark turn somewhere though.

I got a little bored of Monster around ep 23. I should really carry on. Death note he will watch but gets a little bored in some episodes which is understandable.
He wont understand the story so that doesn't really matter too much. Its more something we can watch together so I dont need to re-watch the same 5 films over and over! Haha!
He loves Ghibli, We watch them often though I don't want them to become stale though over-watching.
Thanks for the other recommendations. i was looking at One Piece and thinking of getting that today so I'll also have alot at the others you said.
Aww Ghibli is great~
I'd go for the flashier shows rather than the psychological ones. Out of all those I recommended, One Piece is probably the most kid friendly one.
There's also of course DBZ & Naruto but I haven't actually watched those. ;P
My partner is making me get DBZ just because he wants me to watch it more then anything. I was thinking about Naruto because i remember watching an episode a while back and it being more kid style animation.

Lol Elfen Lied is not suitable. Do not watch it with Andy.
I hate Naruto....
Full Metal Alchemist isn't too bad graphically, and it has a deadly sin theme and is sexy. It's definitely not an obsession of mine.... >_>
and heres me expecting you to recommend Sailor Moon.

It isn't so bad after the initial episode, but there is plenty of inappropriateness throughout: nudity, gore, hints of incest, brutality towards animals, etc.

Honestly, I feel like the anime they sometimes show on TV (Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, etc) are probably your best bet. They usually censor any overly graphic material, and a lot of adults still enjoy those shows
