The first anime I ever have watched is Squid Girl. Squid Girl is a adorable comedy that will have you wanting to watch more. It's pretty funny, and defiantly adorable, but at times it strikes me as just plain weird. With a completely different story on each episode, it sometimes looses my interest as the more I watch it. With a completely cute theme song, and creative characters, this is definitely one to watch for ages 7-14. The story takes place on the beach, so you will see some bikini shots, but other than that I see nothing wrong with this anime.
