So for those of you have kids or even though who don’t I was wondering what anime you would show your kids to introduce them to anime?
Now I got the idea for this topic because I saw the same topic in the MAL forums and it got me to thinking.
I think that when I have kids I would probably show them the anime’s that I liked as a kid that got me interested in anime. So that would be anime’s like Sailor Moon,
Dragon Ball Z,
& also possibly Yu Yu Hakusho.
But what about everyone else? What anime would show your kids if or when you have them? Comment down below your answers I can’t wait to read them.
I’m sure that I’m not the only one who has gone through trying to explain to someone usually an adult in their family about why anime isn’t just for kids.
For me that person is my dad because he can’t completely understand exactly why I like anime so much but he is starting to understand. He is only starting to understand because I showed him a few different shows like Shin-Chan, Bleach, and also Death Note.
But one thing that never gets old (well actually yeah it does) is whenever I tell people I want anime they immediately think of Pokemon.
Now I have nothing against Pokemon because I love the show but not all anime’s are like Pokemon.
Anime is a specific genre and within the genre there are other categories such as romance, mystery, horror, thriller, martial arts, drama and much more.
Don’t get me wrong I can see why people automatically think of Pokemon and that’s because it’s an anime that is very mainstream and many people know about it. But the way people say it when I tell them I watch anime is what makes me very perturbed because anime is so much more than that. It’s like when they say that they think of me as a little kid when I’m obviously not.
Anime’s such as Death Note
and Elfen Leid
are by no means for kids due to the topic and in Elfen Leid’s case the violence involved. So when I’m faced with that awkward you watch anime conversation I point out a few that aren’t for kids.
But what do you guys do when in that situation or how do you feel when someone thinks anime is kiddish due to some mainstream anime’s. Leave you comments below and let me know.
