Yay family time!

Soooo, mom and I just finished watching my new GetBackers DVD on our brand-spanking NEW TV!!! The screen is so flat and the picture is so clear and crisp and OMG. O_O Seriously, we've had that TV since we moved here, it had to be over 15 years old, and now we bought a new one and these days.
But anyway, GetBackers!! My mom really likes it. :D Yesterday when I told her what I bought she was like "...Let's watch it together later, okay?" And now we did! And she enjoyed it. ^_^ She said "Awww, that was a nice story" after the arc with Shido and Madoka. XD
So far, the anime that she really likes are:

-most of the Ghibli movies
-Crayon Shin-chan
-Detective Conan
-Hikaru no Go (I think this is the one she had the most emotional attachment to, which is probably why she felt so betrayed by the ending O_o)
-Fushigi Yuugi (well, she went through the manga pretty damn fast)
-Fullmetal Alchemist (I forced her into this one, but she started asking for more soon enough >D)
-Yakitate! Japan (she's still bugging me to download more...)

Anime that she dislikes:

-Pokemon (though she liked Team Rocket...)
-Card Captor Sakura
-Haibane Renmei
-Kino no Tabi (the only reason she hasn't banned me from watching/reading it is because I haven't shown her the really dark stuff >>;)

Anime that she's indifferent to:

-More than I can recall. >_>;

Anime that I'm not aware of/she saw before I was born:

-...How the hell am I supposed to know this?

In conclusion, I think what my mom is looking for is funny, silly stuff with happy endings and an intriguing story to boot, but nothing overly slow, cute and childish. I'll have to keep this in mind...
