25 Best Kid-Friendly Anime of All Time

Kid-Friendly Anime

The world of animation can be a risky option to watch before parents. In one moment, everything is fine and the next one creates embarrassment for both the child as well as their caregivers. 

The plot may decide to take the story on a dark turn and then laughter is replaced with murder, or the character may suddenly experience an issue with their clothes without explanation after being dressed appropriately up until this moment.

Animation is usually a mixed assortment of surprises. It’s therefore important to know which shows are able to be enjoyed by any person. It will help to prevent a large number of red faces everywhere.

The majority of anime is not entirely kid-friendly even though it appears to be so, particularly with regards to films from earlier eras. 

Even in its early examples such as Astro Boy, there are moments that are a snooze-inducing experience today in today’s 21st Century. 

That’s why there is an extensive list of family-friendly animation to all watch since it’s difficult to determine the appropriateness of a series or film on the basis of the plot or the images alone.

This is what this ranking will be about. Animation for anyone and of any age and is great for the entire family, from the youngest Junior to your great-great.

25. Howl’s Moving Castle

Howl's Moving Castle

The dreamy, imaginative animation has an old wise wizard who is walking around in a fantastical castle, and a wise woman who is actually an 18-year-old hat maker transformed by an unsavory witch. 

There’s also an emaciated scarecrow with a twisted face and a negotiating demon.

Kids might not understand all the intricate character growth, but they’ll delight in every minute.

24. Spirited Away

Spirited Away

I’m going to begin by introducing Spirited Away. 

However, in the end, any Ghibli movie (besides perhaps Grave of the Fireflies) is a sure choice.

I picked Spirited Away in particular because the universe continues to be awe-inspiring.

When I first saw it as a youngster I was in love with the intriguing characters. I even imagined living with them.

Now, as a bigger child, I take a examine all the themes in the film and the ways they are tied to actual situations.

To many people, this film is Ghibli’s greatest work. 

It is highly recommended to bring it up during your next movie night with the family.

23. Sailor Moon

Sailor Moon

Although the uncut edition of the program does have some moments, however, it’s the American version is a favorite with an enormous portion of viewers. 

This is due to the popularity Sailor Moon gained when it was part of Cartoon Network’s Toonami schedule.

The story, inspired by a well-known manga that belongs to the Magical Girl genre. 

Its protagonist is Usagi Tsukino, a teen girl who finds out she can transform into a superhero. 

She joins with other girls, referred to as”the Sailor Soldiers, to fight against the dark forces. 

Sailor Moon is a combination of comedy, magic, and family scenarios that anyone can identify with.

22. Haikyu!!

Haikyu!!

Sports anime is yet another secure bet as both old and young are familiar with the thrill of winning a big game.

Since Haikyu can also be described as a bit more realistic and tame in the way the story is told (and the way that the games unfold) even older people will appreciate the effort that was put into the production.

Additionally, there’s a humane story to tell behind it all.

It’s not like you’re watching the Monday football game with your old friend.

There’s something for everyone.

21. Sweetness And Lightning

Sweetness And Lightning

If you’ve ever thought of combining their love for anime with food, Sweetness and Lightning is the ideal recipe. 

The majority of the show concentrates on the recipes Kohei, the widower’s dad, cooks for his daughter Tsumugi. 

Actually, viewers who are watching the show could do the same by themselves to cook easy food items.

The remainder of Sweetness and Lightning is based on the relationship of Kohei and his child in kindergarten. 

The show focuses on how they manage to solve problems without any help from their mother. 

As with other anime that do not have a power system, it captures the emotions and tribulations of family relationships.

20. Natsume’s Book Of Friends

Natsume's Book Of Friends

Let’s face it, kids learn a lot about their character traits and values early on from the shows they’re watching.

The Natsume Book of Friends should be as popular as the anime Bible in this regard since I believe it teaches crucial life lessons and is extremely entertaining to enjoy.

While your son learns about notions that liberty is, then you also get to watch the tsundere cat while he gets another jealousy-filled freakout. 

Everyone wins in this show.

19. Snow White With The Red Hair

Snow White With The Red Hair

The Disney film Snow White is more sinister than it appears. 

The witch of the night tries to kill the innocent princess without any reason that is remotely relatable or sympathetic. 

In the meantime, Snow White herself needs to traverse a threatening forest to reach the home of the dwarves.

Snow White with the Red Hair isn’t quite as dark. 

Also, it doesn’t have dwarfs. In reality, Snow White in this family drama is Shirayuki a herbalist who has rare red hair. 

She flees her home when she is made the concubine of Prince Raji. 

Although there’s an apple that is poisoned it’s not an integral aspect of the story. 

In addition, the character development is more extensive in the sequel to Snow White than in the original.

18. K-On!

K-On!

While your parents may be a bit irritated even if you’re when you’re in your 30s or 40s, this is an absolute blast to enjoy with your younger brother or your nephew.

It’s the formula that has been patented adorable girls doing cute things that are appealing and relatable characters and a rousing music track.

It’s not really risky also. It’s not often seen in anime of high school because of some reason.

And the subjects the show tackles aren’t too explicit or serious for an audience of children

All things considered, I’d say that it’s a safe choice for children!

17. ReLife

ReLife

What if a chance was offered to revisit their past to repair the mistakes they made up? 

Would they accept that risk with the possibility that something else might happen in the new version which makes it worse than the one before? 

This is exactly what 27-year-old Arata Kaizaki is doing within ReLife.

Through a course at the ReLife rehabilitation center, Arata becomes 17-years-old again and is able to go back into high school

Arata is here to discover the reasons for what happened during his time. 

While it’s not the best choice, an ideal choice for young children, ReLifeis an excellent show for parents and older kids to watch together.

16. My Hero Academia

My Hero Academia

MHA has found itself in a strange place. 

There are some quite serious scenes, for instance, the death of a particular character, but I believe it’s still suitable for a wider public.

Anyone who was a child of cartoons about superheroes will tell you that, even the odd serious scene isn’t too difficult If it’s not too obvious or constant.

And, my Hero Academia is, for the most part, entertaining and clean.

It also has crucial morals on friendship, hard work, aiding others. Therefore, I’ll give it a pass on an occasional battle injury.

Keep your kids away from Mineta because Mineta isn’t the role model that one should look up to.

15. Tamako Market

Tamako Market

What made shows such as The Office and Parks and Recreation so popular was their portrayals of everyday life. 

In the end, viewers were able to connect with the characters they liked. 

They are the ones who ought to enjoy the slice-of-life animated series, Tamako Market.

It’s a light-hearted show about a teenager who works in the store of her parents to create Mochi, a Japanese food called Mochi. 

There’s no Gundam or mysterious girls. 

It’s about Tamako and her first year at high school and how she manages her work and life.

14. Little Witch Academia

Little Witch Academia

I envision Little Witch Academia as the modern Sailor Moon in certain ways.

It is a predominantly female group of girls, all of whom are striving to be the best Hogwarts-lite edition, all with the aim of in order to become a renowned witch.

Her character, in particular, is new to magic and is struggling with her class. 

However, with a bit of perseverance and a bit of luck, she’s able to catch up with others in a matter of minutes.

A good moral stance, captivating images, a good story, and soothing music. What else could you want?

13. Flying Witch

Flying Witch

Flying Witch is an adorable and fun slice-of-life anime that has beautiful animation and memorable characters. 

The series follows Makoto Kowata who is a curious and young witch who has a cute tiny black cat who is her companion.

She moves to a brand new area to commence her education as a witch and improve her skills. 

Through the course of her journey, she meets new acquaintances and encounters the various challenges of being a witch. 

This is a fantastic choice for those who love all things magical creatures and fantasies.

12. Barakamon

Barakamon

The show has two central characters: an adult as well as one of the children. 

You can understand why I recommend it to an all-encompassing public.

While children might be cheering at Naru or the remaining kids while they play in the shell.

More mature viewers may be able to understand Seishun in his struggles shed the norms of society and become truly compassionate and imaginative.

It’s among my top shows ever. It’s one that I strongly recommend watching either on your own or with some company!

11. Pokemon

Pokemon

Pokemon has been the longest-running series that has entertained kids as well as adults since the early ’90s

The series is packed with adventure and lore, as well as love and friendship that is enjoyed by all the family. 

And that’s not even counting the huge amount of gaming and video associated with it.

The series follows the continuous journey that follows Ash Ketchum and his friends as he prepares his Pokemon and faces off against the bizarre and numerous foes in his path. 

This series is not only healthy to enjoy with the members of the family but, it’s addressed serious issues in a manner that everyone young and old enjoys.

10. How to Keep a Mummy

How to Keep a Mummy

I’m giving this show my highest recommendation due to it being just too cute to ignore.

It’s all about a boy known as Sora who gets hold of the most adorable, tiny Mummy that anyone has ever encountered.

Mummy is really an infant at heart, and is always avoiding terrifying situations, or even cries when she’s left unattended.

It’s true, this show is so innocent and cute that there’s not any person on Earth who wouldn’t love watching this ball of bandages swaddling around.

9. Your Name

Your Name

Your Name is a wonderful film that explores the love of adolescent girls as well as the occasional twist between time and distance.

It is a winning combination Doesn’t it?

The show set record-breaking records at the time it debuted and with good reason.

The characters are likable, the animation is stunning, and the writing offers something for everyone.

While adults think about the fateful red string that set everything in motion, children will be laughing at the hilarious dynamic between the characters.

Everyone will be amazed by the beauty of the landscape.

8. Dr. Stone

Dr. Stone

Being a fan of Dr. Stone is the same as watching Bill Nye the Science Guy but with more visuals.

While it’s set in a somewhat post-apocalyptic setting, however, the show is about scientific research and how everyday objects are constructed.

Something as simple as discs suddenly become an epic adventure. I’d lie if I claimed that I didn’t gain anything through the program.

Additionally, they are humorous and cartoonish. 

Even if science is boring until death with boredom, it’s likely that you’ll be captivated by the characters and their funny hilarious antics.

7. One Punch Man

One Punch Man

The debut episode of One Punch Man is an absolute masterpiece according to me. 

Everyone will surely enjoy it in some way or the other.

In contrast to My Hero Academia, there aren’t any real stakes in this series, nor do good characters ever go down.

The show has amusement with superheroes’ tropes in which the main character shoots every enemy that crosses his path, is then frightened because he didn’t make the huge sale at the supermarket.

The animation is amazing in that it’s sure to keep old and young viewers alike riveted to the screen. 

This does not even include the incredible soundtrack and the brilliant writing.

6. The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.

The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.

We’re already in the world of comics, I may consider bringing Saiki in the mix.

This show is incredibly reminiscent of cartoons on Saturday mornings because there’s a lot of serialization and the vibe is always positive and optimistic.

The show offers a nice mix of slapstick comedy and well-thought-out jokes, and so it’s pretty much a good fit for all ages in terms of having a laugh from you.

The episodes are extremely dense, too. 

They also have very little open air, which makes it ideal for binge-watching episodes or just watching occasionally with your children.

5. Laid-Back Camp

Laid-Back Camp

And now we’re back to pretty girls and cute activities.

Laid Back Camp is exactly as it’s supposed to be Laid-Back Camp is a laid-back and cozy comedy about a group of girls who decide to go camping.

The primary attraction for the program is the way women interact with each other and the tranquil scenery.

While adults may find some strange peace while watching the show, children might be pestering for you to take a trip camping. 

Therefore, let your kids watch on your own at risk.

4. A Place Further Than The Universe

A Place Further Than The Universe

If you’re in search of a show that narrates great adventures, with highly likable characters and gorgeous scenery, A Place Further Than The Universe is worth checking out.

The story centers around four girls who decide to head to Antarctica to spend their childhood together, and to locate the missing mother of one of them.

The show is filled with incredible writing. I’ll bet you a penny if you don’t feel like you’re part of the story by episode three.

The story gets a little more complicated in the final section of the show. However, I believe that it’s suitable for all audiences.

3. Those Snow White Notes

Those Snow White Notes

Many in the anime I’ve mentioned to date are staples with a house name in the world of anime. 

Therefore, you may have watched them all.

In fact, I’d like to include a recent collection, such as the snow-white notes.

The story is about a boy who rekindles his passion for music after being snoozing for a while and after being sent to school.

The instrument at issue is also called the Shamisen that is a great variation from the ukulele or the acoustic guitar which is especially appealing if you love Asian culture.

So far, it appears to be the perfect show for relaxation, with some important morals sprinkled throughout.

2. Ascendance of a Bookworm

Ascendance of a Bookworm

Okay, this may be the only anime show I’d suggest to a wider audience because of obvious reasons If you’re interested in the genre.

And Ascendance is a treasure.

While the story begins with the protagonist dying, she’s soon transported to a brand new world in which she’s able to share her love of books.

Since her new house was built in the middle ages period and books are a necessity. 

It’s up to her to do her best if she hopes for her love of books to be shining bright.

It’s wholesome and may even encourage you to get the book. Win-win.

1. Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions

Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions

If there’s a thing adults and children alike require to have more in their lives it’s imagination and creativity.

This show is about.

The cast is comprised of people who simply don’t desire to take on the reality of it all and prefer to turn everything into a cute short adventure straight from the pages of a fantasy story.

The characters are hilarious and enjoyable, and I’m certain that children will be entertained by their antics.

Those who are older will be hit with a nostalgia blast enough to make them remember being a child again.

This is an anime that’s completely kid-friendly as well as fun for all the family!
