mate really suggesting black lagoon to a 9 year old that show is full of blood gore and a shit tone of swearing

You have to admit though, a 9-year-old swearing around the house in Revy Engrish would be pretty damn funny.

Totally unconscionable, of course. Entirely outside the realm of permissibly encouragable behavior. But still...

The rape takes it off the table for kids automatically, regardless of other factors.

Fiction works like a meta-language, you have to have a certain amount of prior understanding to translate it into something meaningful. It's like the gradual difference between a picture book and a scientific text. Children (let's say, roughly, 12 and below) shouldn't have the prior understanding of rape for it to be understood in a meaningful way.

I wouldn't give a 3rd-4th grader a story about rape just like I wouldn't give them a technical scientific paper, they're not equipped to get anything meaningful out of it with their current toolkit. Especially in this case, when the focus was as much on the man committing the rape as the girl who gave birth to his child later in the series and hated herself for it.

(This conversation is really good though, I hope the OP doesn't mind the minor derail).


Same, I like the conversations we're having about it.

Yeah, I would hold off until about 4-5th Grade on Now and Then, Here and There, but at that it's fair game. I'm using my own younger cousins as reference points myself. Unfortunately for them, according to me, is they're HEAVILY religious and their parents/my aunts do not want them to watch a lot of things.

Very fortunately for me, my Grandpa is totally on my side, and gave them Samurai 7 for Christmas.

But sticking to it, I believe 11-12 year old children are equipped to handle such a show, and understand the show enough to enjoy it.

At 9 however, eeeeeeh, wait a year or two.

i agree with the first series but that scene at the beginning of season 2 involving Rebecca and her broom stick should not be witnessed by a 9 year old

I actually haven't gotten to Fate/Zero yet. I hear it's beautifully animated. But, right now, I'm stuck on episode 6 of Fate/Stay, but I did go ahead and watch half of Fate/Kalied Liner Prisma ILLYA, because I didn't realize it was connected to the other Fates. (Brain fart, when its obvious by the title.) I'll get to it though once I finish Stay and IILYA, though. But the name of that guy was Uvogin. I will always remember him for that scene. He was a serious beast and it was a shame he didn't get more time on the show.



Indeed a great argument, I am in agreement myself. I would still show it to a 9-Year old, but by the time he reaches Chimera Ant arc that kid is totally going to be 11, I'd make sure of it.

Yeah, Rider/Iskander from Fate/Zero shares his Voice Actor with Uvogin; Aki Otsuka, who generally plays this type of character, and I am a huge fan of the voice actor in general.

To say it again, they are REALLY the same Character, with similar motivations and speeches. Hell, Rider is totally the reason Fate/Zero plays out far differently as a narrative than Fate/Stay Night.

Below is a picture of Rider seconds after he is introduced to the audience, to give you a visual representation.


I tend to rant a lot on such subjects.. if anybody else has recommendations or arguments lets keep the topic running!

Yeah, it's the break-point that's hard to define. For my part I wouldn't show it to my brother yet, and he's 12. Probably within the year it'd be fine though. It does depend on the kid(s) in question to a large degree.

I don't think it's important to be in a hurry to show them this kind of thing at the soonest possible opportunity though, either. Although at the same time I did rush giving my sister Haibane Renmei by a fair bit when she was younger.

Captain Earth
Majin Bone

All seem safe for a kid that age.I've seen them all and can't recall anything that's not kid-friendly.

Also what he may enjoy possibly are the Ultraman and Godzilla titles in the drama section.

Ok, so what would a nearly 9 year old boy watch? (From here on out referred to as W-Chan.) I'm not sure. He likes Miyazaki films a lot, and anime on Nickelodeon, so I thought this might be fun for his tablet and sent a pass to his mom. I told her about turning the mature filter on to keep stuff from showing up that he can't watch, and it's not like there's hentai here, but now I'm feeling like I should compile a list of things for him to check out. I don't think everything I like to watch is necessarily appropriate but then I'm not a mom so I don't know what a young boy watches. For example, Sword Art Online is great but I'm concerned about certain scenes at the end of season two
Guh! I just don't want to ruin W-Chan, he's a good boy!

My list so far:

Chi's Sweet Home (Well, he loves Ponyo)
Usagi Drop
Beyond the Boundary? Nothing explicit, though the little sister fetish references might be weird??
I'm not sure he'd be interested in Lucky Star. I watch different things than young boys like.

I guess he needs swords and epic stories without too much, er.. "fan service"?????

Then there's things that have already been on cartoon network like Bleach (which I admit I haven't watched). I know kids love Naruto.

Buuuuuuh.... I don't knoooow... There's no ratings to go by, I know in Japan they don't do that so much.

Please help, what should W-chan watch? He's 9!! He loves Avatar, Korra, Dr Who, Adventure Time, and Miyazaki films!

Usagi Drop
