should've gotten one for me, too
I just ordered this t-shirt for my niece:

I also ordered her the first two omnibus editions of the CCS manga, even if she's a little young for it still, because I'm afraid if I wait another year it will go out of print again.

And I got ToA on 3DS and The Slayers anime set for my nephew for the same reason. Since we don't have kids of our own to force our interests on, we're trying to encourage them to discover their inner otaku.

Current Mood: amused amused
Current Music: why do you let me stay here--she & him

I take my role as aunt very seriously!

Never too early to get someone hooked on manga. :)

My friend got her niece hooked early on Sailor Moon. Now the kid out-anime's both of us, lol.

If I can ever get her hooked, maybe Sailor Moon will be next. We bought her the K-On and Azumanga Daioh DVDs last year, but I don't really know if she watched them.

My friend's niece went to Otakon with us, she's super into it. She watches more anime than I do now! She was talking about all kinds of shows that I'd never heard of! (the side effect of this is 'i feel old' syndrome...lol)

Geez, do I know feeling old when I'm around these kids. When they were first showing me Minecraft, I was just thinking, "What the hell is the point of that?"

Hahaha, totally. I really don't get Minecraft but one of my friend's kids are obsessed with it. I'm so totally old now...lol.

Get em' while they're young.

People often debate what makes the best gateway anime/manga for the Uninitiated. Yotsubato often comes up as a good one for older girls.

D shows Yotsubato to anyone who will sit still long enough, but no one's really bit. In my unscientific small sample, guys seems to like it more than girls do.
