What are the best child-friendly anime?

There are tons of anime fans all over the world and there seems to be no age limit to its scope. Otakus can range from very young to very old. This makes it somehow difficult to filter certain anime shows for certain age groups suitable to consume its content. While it is always easy to appreciate top anime characters because of funny dialogues and cool demeanor, there's no denying that some cartoon heroes need parental control. Lots of violence and vulgar language can be found in loose anime script despite their amazing content and stories. Family-friendly anime shows do exist, offering a medium for quality time for parents with their kids. It is, therefore, the parents' responsibility to make sure that their kids watch the right anime.

Perversion in anime can get into very disturbing levels at times. Despite being disguised in cute facades and sweet voices, there could be some characters and shows that don't fit well with younger audiences. Sometimes, bad values can be depicted in top-selling anime series that is why controlling kids from watching can be difficult. However, group watching can be a regular habit to be practiced. Whenever parents share the same TV shows with their kids, good things and fun can happen. In this list, we have some really good anime shows for kids that are safe, to say the least. There are probably not a lot of better ways to introduce your children to media other than via anime shows for kids. Why not watch these great child-friendly anime titles and get ready to show them to your young ones the next time around?

    0

    Isn't One Piece a staple in your go-to anime list? Commonly, Otakus out there include this, together with Dragon Ball, Naruto, and Bleach. And you know the reason why! But just in case you haven't seen an episode of this anime TV series, you might find yourself amused by Monkey D. Luffy. He is the main protagonist and perhaps the most famous pirate in the world (or at least in the parlance of anime). 

    Did you know that the manga version of One Piece has more than 800 chapters? By the way, Eiichiro Oda is the brilliant mind behind this masterpiece. He is the one and only writer of the manga. But wait! The anime adaptation is also keeping up with more than 700 episodes. So if you are one of the new aspiring Otakus out there, once you sail and go on board with the Straw Hat Pirates (that's what Luffy and his gang are called), there's really no turning back! Since its inception on October 20, 1999, the show still continuously produces episodes following the life of Luffy. Welcome aboard!

    "Spirited Away is actually an animated film, but this problem is not looking especially for a TV nor a movie. So i agree that this film should be included here. This film has been an inspiration to me like most of the Studio Ghibli films. I believe that this film will be a great influence on young girls tteaching them they they can have their own strength and couraage."
