As we all know, anime has an extremely wide variety of themes and audiences. If you’re an adult, then watch whatever you please, but not all anime series are directed to kids, some are too violent and gore, others are just too complex for kids to even understand and follow the anime, and so on I could list more reasons why not animes are for little ones, but what I really want to share is some good anime series or movies that are the perfect fit for little otakus to enjoy.
If you are an otaku parent (like me), maybe a proud aunt or uncle, or the cool big cousin and you want to share anime with your kids, nephews, and nieces, cousins or any little one, but you are not sure what will be a nice movie or series that they will enjoy, but also want to be careful not to make them watch something they’re not ready to watch, here is a list of kid-friendly anime series and movies.
The genre of anime that is dedicated for kids is called Kodomomuke, which literally means “directed at children”
