I'm glad I didn't buy at the Sentai summer sale because the rightstuff has better prices for sentai items. I don't remember Chihayafuru being cheaper (1 for $13.70 and 2 for $20.55). Anything else I should really add to my order if I'm looking for things to watch with my kids?

Rightstuf blew Sentai out of the water. The Sentai Summer sale was pathetic by comparison to the one they had a couple weeks prior.

Ages and likes/dislikes?

4, 8, 9, 12 -- love Gundam wing, Princess Tutu, Ghibli. 4 year old loves Aria, but the oldest doesn't like it and the others are meh. We often watch without the 4 year old, so it doesn't have to be dictated by her age. I got Yumeiro Patissiere for the 4 year old before I realized it wasn't dubbed, but the 8 and 9 year old liked it still. Wanted to start at the beginning with Gundam, but they couldn't get into the the original Gundam series 3 movie set. My wife is very against any fanservice which makes it very hard to find comedy anime. (We just watched Be cool scooby-do and they loved that.)

Mine are 4, 8, 12, 14. We watch most shows subtitled; the 4-year-old is fine and still follows along.

 

They all enjoy:

  • Mirai
  • The Boy and the Beast
  • Promare (8-year-old watches this weekly)
  • Bobobo-Bo-Bobobo
  • Lamune & 40 Fire
  • A Silent Voice
  • The Big O
  • Your Name
  • Mary and the Witch's Flower
  • Napping Princess
  • K-On
  • Chihayafuru
  • Pokemon
  • Lu Over the Wall
  • Okko's Inn
  • Summer Wars
  • Chi's Sweet Home
  • Chi's New Address
  • Skip Beat
  • Penguin Highway
  • Modest Heroes
  • Liz and the Blue Bird
  • Sound Euphonium the Movie
  • Patema Inverted

I allow the older two to watch some more mature shows. They enjoy:

  • Fullmetal Alchemist
  • My Hero Academia
  • Fruits Basket
  • The Promised Neverland
  • Trigun
  • Witch Hunter Robin
  • Terror in Resonance
  • Princess Principal
  • Steins;Gate
  • Kino's Journey
  • Fractale

If you have Crunchyroll, consider for all the kids:

  • Sweetness and Lightning
  • How to Keep a Mummy

The older kids commented last night how much they're enjoying God of High School.

 

In the not-anime-but-animated category:

  • Song of the Sea
  • Long Way North
  • Book of Kells
  • Ernest & Celestine

From this sale, I have on order, but have not seen:

  • Squid Girl, Kids on the Slope, Gourmet Girl Graffiti, and The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales.

You must not have ever shopped Sentai during the holiday season. Rightstuf has good prices, but no one comes close to beating Sentai's prices it sets during Black Friday and early December.

I use Rightstuf only for good Funimation prices.

I definitely recommend Squid Girl for people of all ages. It’s a over-the-top pun heavy comedy. It was one of the most amusing comedies I’ve ever seen.

Cardcaptor Sakura maybe?

 

Slice of life stuff like Yuru Camp?

There are a million pages of deals, I got tired of clicking through them looking for something to catch my eye...they don't have a list of some sort that you can access easily do they? Like literally a spreadsheet.
