I was thinking we would try Legend of the Legendary Heroes or One Piece next. I tried Naruto with him, but it didn't seem to hold his interest much.


Okay, I lied. I started watching (I always watch at least a little bit of a series first befire showing it to the kids) Legend of the Legendary Heroes and it is a lot more graphically violent than I thought it would be. Maybe when they reach the double digits if any of my nephews still show an interest in anime.

Last night I was lamenting over Tokyo Godfathers never getting an English dub (to my knowledge) as I would have loved to have been able to watch that with them.

I'll make him/her watch classics. Astro Boy, Gundam, and Saint Seiya will be among the few I make them watch. After they respect and love the classics then they can watch whatever modern anime they want.

mainstream tv series:

Shugo Chara!
Aikatsu!
Precure (except for Doki doki)
Pretty Rhythm: Aurora Dream
Pretty Rhythm: Rainbow Live
Pretty Rhythm: Paradise

Shugo Chara is about Amu, a female main character who helps people overcome their fears and insecurities, which is personalized by what is called a "bad egg".
Aikatsu! is pretty much the leading shoujo idol series. Aikatsu and Pretty Rhythm are actually "sister" series so to-speak: they're both from Ciao magazine (a magazine who's main audience is the younger female demographics)

Precure is a hero series, but all-female main cast. as you'd expect, they're (supposed to be) role-models for younger kids.

when she's a little older:
Non Non Biyori (slice of life in a farm)
Kiniro mosaic (slice of life featuring Japanese culture through humor)

Yu-Gi-Oh! has some dark elements, and appeals more to guys than girls
Spirited Away...that pig transformation scene was pretty disturbing. not too sure i'd recommend for younger kids because of it.


Why not doki doki?

traffic light episode
carrot episode
mana (the "leader" cure of doki doki)
ultimate attack was not that great (ok, it was awful. especially if you compare it to fresh precure's ultimate (one of the best ultimates imo))

this season tries to teach morals too "in your face" - as traffic light and carrot episode shows.
mana is given far too much attention in the series. this would be fine, but they sacrifice development of other characters in the process for what some would claim to be a mary-sue main character.

the ending theme and insert songs were great and catchy, but overall doki doki wasn't a great season.

Escaflowne

I wanted to say Sword Art Online, but the second season of that gets pretty creepy. I would feel uncomfortable showing it to a kid.

Escaflowne is pretty tame as far as the romance goes. A little bit of blood, but it's not over the top.

Studio Ghibli movies while they're still young (my little sister loves those), when they're a little older, I want to let them watch the stuff I grew up with (Cedie, Princess Sarah, Remy, Angie Girl, Shaman King, Yu Yu Hakusho, Flame of Recca etc.), or make them watch shows that are kid appropriate like Beyblade, Crush Gear, Yu-Gi-Oh, B-Daman, Machine Robo Rescue, Let's & Go (Y'know, those that are tie-in with kiddie toys).

When they're like, 10 and up, that's where it's fine to let them watch some more modern shounen and shoujo.

But let's face it, with today's generation learning technology fast, by the time a child reaches the age of 10, they'd probably know how to go through the internet to choose the shows they'd like without anyone telling them to or not to.

I would start out with Pokemon and Yugioh, and I definitely know that I want to try Naruto with them, that was a big childhood favorite (Still is obv), but everything else is up in the air, they can choose what they want to watch.

I don't believe in waiting to a certain age to watch certain things, it all depends on the child's maturity level, not the age. By 8 I was watching R rated movies, but it never scarred me because I was mature enough to handle it. But everybody matures at a different pace, it is just something to gauge as you go.

Maybe Acchi Kocchi or Anne Happy. Both of those are okay for children to watch imo.

PONYO! because it's one of the best movies ever made, and it actually has a Norwegian dub. I'd also love to show them Tanoshii moomin ikka, but it aired in the 90s and I'm pretty sure it's really hard to get a hold of more than just a couple episodes with the Norwegian voices, cause I'd have to get second hand VHS, I'm pretty sure.

Ideally I'd wanna go hard on the Mahou Shoujo, with Sailor Moon, Precure and all the CLAMP shows. But they'll have to wait until they're able to at least understand English, and by then they'll probably be like 13-14. and anything I find cool, at that age they'll just autoreject, right?

Marginal #4 has a lot of bright colors and nothing inappropriate, so I'd show that to a kid. It's just really fun and happy. It's about these high school boys who are also idols... it's just really fun and cute.

i have to agree with you there if you trust your kids enough to play and watch 18+ movies and games then do it because it will show them you trust them and it goes for anime i was 6 when i first watched dragonball z watching that late at night but at the end of the day it all comes down to trust and being mature about it as long you tell them and be nice about the whole don't copy etc lesson
