WELL, IN THE NEAR FUTURE, MOST OF US ANIME LOVERS WOULD STILL LOVE ANIME RIGHT? IF YOU WOULD BECOME A PARENT, WOULD YOU ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD TO WATCH IT OR YOU WOULD EVEN WATCH WITH THEM?

I would say Anime is more intellectually stimulating than american cartoons. They even manage to take most of the subtle factors of the anime out when they translate them. Dumbing them down to what they think a kid would like. As well as removing almost all cultural references.

Increases reading speed and comprehension, as well as retention I would imagine. At the very least more than American television does. Also the Dramas give them a separate sense of culture. Most American children grow up completely oblivious to the fact that other cultures exist, and when they do start to learn about them tend to find them weird or stupid. We don't get that whole "ignorant" American stigma for nothing. Most industrial countries know more about our own history; which is significantly shorter than almost every other major nation in the world, than we do. I think exposing children to an alternate culture, intellectually stimulating programs, and an incorporated source of reading that isn't broken down into lol's and omg's can only be a positive influence.

Though I think I would screen the anime thoroughly for blood and violence, nudity, and comments that would bring about certain types of questions a bit earlier than I'd like before I allowed it. As for watching it with them...depends, if they had shitty taste in anime I feel I would ridicule them relentlessly as soon as they're old enough to not be scarred for life by it.
