''Kodomomuke'' translates from Japanese as "intended for children" and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin predictably]] indicates {{Anime}} and {{Manga}} aimed at children younger than the typical {{Shonen}} and {{Shojo}} viewers. Owing to the AnimationAgeGhetto, this sort of media often makes the transition from Japanese to Western audiences with fewer ([[CutAndPasteTranslation oft-lamented]]) changes.

None of this is meant to imply that [[TroperDemographics you]] need to feel [[GuiltyPleasures odd]] about liking anything on the list. Enjoy yourself! We won't judge you.
