I have three siblings ages ranging 4-10.
Being the weeb that I am I've been introducing them to anime and I was hoping to get some suggestions for kid friendly anime movies.
As for what they've seen:
>Most of Miyazaki's movies
>Little Witch Academia (Only the first OVA)
>Digimon (Just season 1 and 3)
It has to have a dub as the youngest cannot read.
>inb4 boku no pico
I'm not a total pleb, I've just run out of idea of good, dubbed, children's anime.
Thank you in advance.
I mentioned in the OP they'd seen some Miyazaki movies, to be more specific they've seen:
>Castle in the Sky
>Castle of Cagliostro
>Castle of Moving in Howl's
Other than that, they haven't seen any other Ghibli movies, anything specific you'd recommend?
That's for when they're older.
If they are girls maybe cardcaptor sakura or glitterforce
Onepiece-some violence and busty women every now and then but mostly fine
Squid Girl one of the girls has a gay crush on her so just fyi if thats off limits.it
Azumanga Daioh maybe watch it first
I remember liking Medabots and zatch bell and Monster Rancher
I don't watch dubbed much so im not sure what is or isnt dubbed these days
>If they are girls maybe cardcaptor sakura or glitterforce
One of them is a girl, I'm waiting until she's old enough to read subtitles competently to watch Cardcaptors because the dub butchers it so badly. I actually showed her the trailer to Glitter Force (I've never been a Pre Cure man myself) and she absolutely hated it. Which is funny to me, because not that long ago she was really into that Equestria Girls shit.
I totally forgot about this one, I used to love it as a kid, I'm positive they'd enjoy it.
>Squid Girl one of the girls has a gay crush on her so just fyi if thats off limits.
I completely forgot I watched that with them years ago. Thankfully the 'racey' stuff isn't really that overt.
>Azumanga Daioh maybe watch it first
I totally forgot about that show, I think I considered watching it with them a while, so maybe.
>I remember liking Medabots and zatch bell and Monster Rancher
Medabots is in the list of 'to watch with the sibs', the only thing holding it back is that the girl has a bias against robots that I'm slowly trying to change. I was never really into Zatch Bell as a kid, does it hold up today?
Ojamajo Doremi is the greatest kids show of all time. Seriously, they'll enjoy the fuck out of it but they'll also learn good values and that kinda thing too. Make sure you watch it too. Everyone should watch Doremi.
Sugar a Little Snow Fairy
Di Gi Charat
The Tamagotchi animes
I totally agree with the anon about Moomins,
the 90s version of course, the 60s and 70s version were hilariously messed up
Some movies I would recommend for kids:
Haruka and the Magic Mirror
dang, I forgot the one about this young girl who befriends a teen boy and falls into another world full of spirits and her male teacher is there..I looked allover and cannot find the title. That was a great movie full of beautiful scenery.
I remember seeing that one as well. It was really nicely animated and looked very much like something from studio Ghibli. It has some weird things in it though like "God" being some weird alien looking thing. I couldn't bring myself to get past that but the movie really does look fantastic.
Princess Tutu, Summer Wars, Di Gi Charat, Heroman, Hikaru no Go.
Don't know if I'd show any of these to the four year old, however. Four seems too young to be showing most anime asides from those explicitly designed for preschoolers.
>Namanaka Hyaku Percent!
>kodomo no jikan
They'll love 'em
>recommending Yuuki Yuuna for kids
Maybe show them Madoka as well while we're at it?
I don't know if they've been dubbed, and I'm not about to google dubs for you, but my elementary school-aged cousins loved Summer Wars and Welcome to the Space Show. I suppose the other two Hosoda films (Tokikake and Wolf Children) would be nice too.
And seeing as you're discussing shows and not only movies, speaking of Welcome to the Space Show, Kamichu! HAS been dubbed (though I don't like the dub... but, all things considered, it could be much, much worse). They're both directed by Masunari Koji, and I believe Kamichu! is child-friendly enough, even though it's not really aimed at children. It's about the shinto religion though, so if your parents are full christians, they might not appreciate you showing your siblings Kamichu!
>Hey, look at the cool toy I got
>Can I see it?
>Everyone can see it. Except Nobita
>WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH DORAEMON SUNEO HAS COOL TOY
>Oh here's a better toy
>Oh great. Time to exploit it
>Very imaginative series imo
