Wouldn't it be better getting just one volume at a time :D

You set out a list, and it works through them disc by disc.

So yes he will be getting them one at a time. Or 2 or 3 at a time depending on how many he can get out at once...

You don't want Cardcaptors - you want Cardcaptor Sakura. Cardcaptors is the shitty, hacked-up, dubbed version shown on Fox Kids that rips out most of what people like about the show (and besides, it flopped and they didn't release it all on DVD). You'll probably also want to skip that Cardcaptor Sakura movie until after the first season of the show, it's a spoiler-fest if watched any sooner :D

If your son likes fast cars, try and get hold of Initial D (the 3rd or Fourth series are the best), it's really good, and whilst he might be lost on some of the dialogue, the racing sections never failt to impress - fan of anime or not!

Last Exile is a good choice (set in a pseudo-17th century fantasy world with airships and such, very final fantasy!) as is Gundam Wing/Seed, also you might want to dig around for Naruto, the new Pokemon series and Trigun.

Manga-wise you want to be looking at Appleseed, Macross Plus and possibly Akira.

Suitable for an 11 year old?

Well, I was also going to suggest Ranma - with the caveat that hitcher watch a couple of episodes first to make sure he's happy.

I do think Ranma is very innocent as far as anime goes, at worst all it does is point out that boobies are funny... which most 11 year olds have generally worked out already. But you can't beat people turning into pandas, girls, cats or little piggies when they get wet - I find it one of the most genuinly funny animated series I've ever seen.
