It's usually a bad idea, because eventually that thread will grow incredibly huge, and finding stuff within the thread that applies to the recommendation you're looking for becomes a total pain. Recommendations are usually specific with references being specific... because of that, they should in general be specific threads. If you want to make an all bearing thread, do what MT did and make a "Favorites of all time" thread. In which people can list their favorites and what they recommend and WHY(this is important) for general reading.This time however the OP is looking for something SPECIFIC for a SPECIFIC demographic. OP: 12 yo Nephew? You need to give us more details because just stating that will give you a list of like 1000 different possibility. What does he like? Naruto as a reference, you can easily state Bleach as a reference, or Dragon Ball, or YYH, or any Shounen Jump fighting series made from the beginning of time.

For recommendation threads in general, the tendency is to just skim the recent pages, make your post, then stick around for a page or two of replies, then leave. It functions to consolidate a lot of mini-discussions. I don't think there should be an expectation of "You must read every other recommendation before asking about your own tastes", at least for expected giant threads.The "explain why your like your favorite anime" is a different concept, and probably an interesting starter. But it's not the same as a recommendation, of course.I appreciate the feedback, even if we disagree.

Actually just think about the Adultswim/toonami line ups in the past years because your nephew is the target audience for the majority of those shows. Shows would be Trigun, inuyasha, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, FMA... Personally I think you should save your nephew some time and just introduce him to Soul Eater and TTGL as they're both around 60 or something episodes combined to complete/catch up, and at this point they're far more interesting and gaining popularity fast. I don't know how far your nephew is in Naruto and Bleach but if he's really just started reading now then I don't think he'll be able to catch up with the series, what with them having like +300 eps each (including the those painfully long filler arcs).Also it's up to you to decide if it's appropriate enough but I really recommend Great Teacher Onizuka, preferably the manga. Teach him what it is to be MAN. But if you don't want him interested in that then atleast try FLCL, though I'm not sure if he'll be able to see past the randomness.
