Elementary school? You moving to America or something? The main lure for anime to most Bored of studies people is that a lot of Bored of studies people are asian (lol no offence to them) and anime appeals to all asians. To all non-asians (like me hehe) though the main appeal is that even though its cartoons they are aimed at older teenager audiences and have deep storylines and a continual story.
One good anime is Deathnote, its about a bored guy who is the best student in japan. He finds a notebook and discovers it has the ability to kill people. He uses it to kill criminals. A detective with strange manerisms who is just as intelligent gets on the case and everything gets really interesting. Dont want to give it all away or anything, i reccomend you watch it. 37 episodes which each go for ~25 mins. Theres a hollywood movie being based on it aswell coming out in a few years.
