Kodomomuke

Go To

Kodomomuke translates from Japanese as "intended for children" and predictably indicates Anime and Manga aimed at children younger than the typical Shōnennote  and Shoujonote  viewers. Owing to the Animation Age Ghetto, this sort of media often makes the transition from Japanese to Western audiences with fewer (oft-lamented) changes.

One indicator that a show is of kodomomuke fare is if it spawns a kiddie ride shortly after launch, although given that even shows like One Piece and Gundam have spawned rides, it's not a reliable indicator.

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

It's important to note that most anime that don't air in late night timeslotsnote  are "kodomomuke".note  However, because of cultural and societal differences (and because of how ambiguous some shows can be at times anyway), it may not come off this way.note  This list only covers shows that could potentially air outside of Japan with little, if any edits or other changes.
