On the 16th, Japan's National PTA announced the results of their annual survey of the top shows that parents don't want their kids watching. The top ranking show for the 8th year in a row is the TV Asahi variety program London Hearts. The primary reasons for this are "The contents are idiotic" and "There are many scenes promoting teasing and prejudiced views." Taking second place in the survey is the long running TV Asahi anime, Crayon Shin-chan, followed by the Fuji TV programs Mecha x2 Iketeru and Shimura Ken no Baka Tonosama. The most common reason given is "It's idiotic" while "The language is vulgar" and "Promoting teasing and prejudiced views" were also common reasons. All of these shows regularly rank in the top of this survey.
