Hi
I signed up for 12 months with CR All Access for 2 reasons:- 1. J Drama for my Japanese wife but 2. primarily for my 7 year old son and 4 year old daughter. They will watch 30-60 mins a day (so I can get a rest from Peppa Pig etc)
Bearing in mind they are being raised as bi-lingual, the audio is not any problem but appreciate any suggestions as to what IS or what definitely ISN'T suitable for my kids. So far they love 1 Piece and The Folktales.
Appreciate any input as anime ain't really my thing (sacrilegious thing to state on this forum, I know........'gomen'......)


mod edit:
Normally I'd consider a thread like this as a personal request for recommendations and refer the OP to you know where ... but the responses have been so great so far, and I'm sure having a thread likes this would be valuable to many users, that I'm just going to highjack it as a "Best Anime for children" thread. So, please do continue adding your suggestions of what CR has to offer that's appropriate for and would likely be enjoyed by those under 13. --lorreen

Chronicles of the Going Home Club seems suitable for young children. It didn't really have many adult jokes just random ones.

I haven't watched One Piece so others can correct me if I'm wrong, but if they are ok with that I'd say Shugo Chara would be good. It's got a mostly Saturday morning feel to it.

This is a good place to start imo but also some other series like Yuyushiki, Yuru Yuri, A-Channel, Kiniro Mosaic, etc also works.

Yeah, "slice of life" are always a good place to start in my opinion.

Chi's Sweet Home is good. My 9 year old absolutely loves Non Non Biyori, Miss monochrome, Popypoyo and Bottom Biting Bug (these are shows I consider good for kids). As well.we watch Meganebu, Kuroko's Basketball, Yowamushi Pedal (aka Yowapeda, about bike club), Ace of the Diamond, Gintama and we just started watching Natsume's Book of Friends. She really enjoyed Silver Spoon when it was airing. We were watching Magi but we are kind of behind right now.

A lot of it comes down with what you are comfortable letting your kids watch and what they like. I always watch with my kids. It is really good bonding time watching anime together

Really most slice of life and sports series should be good for young kids.

I think they should wait until they're a little bit older...

Cheers for the replies everybody.
Yeah, when they are watching I am in the same room, so I am keeping half an eye on whatever they watch.
Will go through and make a list of everyone's answers, and then start watching them with the kids.
Hey, I may even get into anime myself.......!
Thanks again.
