If you’re looking for anime for kids that are appropriate, here are some of the best animes to watch and where.

If you have kids, they might be interested in watching anime for kids. Not all animes are child friendly. Sometimes the animes which look like they are made for children can contain a little amount of indecency. Like Naruto, every kid loves watching Naruto, but the anime mentions topics which are not exactly for kids. It shows perverted men, woman in bikini (sexy jutsu) and kiss (Naruto and Sasuke’s famous kiss)

This is why the show is actually rated PG -13  Its not exactly tailored for kids. So I have curated a list of 10 animes that are perfect for kids and their parents to watch together

1. Glitter Force

4. Chi’s Sweet Home

Chi’s Sweet Home
The anime Chi’s Sweet Home is a story about a cat who is abandoned by her family and ends up in an animal shelter, where she learns that the humans are not always trustworthy. The anime has some violence, but it is mostly harmless. It also has some crude humor, but again, it is harmless. It teaches children many lessons about how to act with kindness and empathy.

The anime Chi’s Sweet Home teaches children empathy through actions of different characters in the show. For example, when one of the characters does something wrong like taking food without permission, he experiences what it feels like to be hungry for days without food. This promotes empathy towards others who endure similar situations as well as prevents kids from doing bad things because they know how they hurt others or make people feel inferior.
It is a fun lighthearted that can be enjoyed by both parents and children.
