I am currently watching an adorable anime called K-on. It's fairly good animation with an age range to about eight to fourteen. It's a fun comedy to watch with a little mystical romance thrown in in the later seasons. It's completely appropriate and great for the whole family. It's a little slow going at first, but after couple episodes it getsa whole lot different. This anime is from 2011-2012 so you won't get any of those poor graphics.
About K-on: It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!
