    So yeah, I babysit a bunch of kids for my parent’s friends since I’m the oldest out of the bunch by like 7 years older then the next oldest of the bunch.Usually I run them out of energy by playing tag, infection, and cops and robbers with them then let them be occupied by their iPads/cartoons. Suddenly i thought, what if I snuck in a few Anime and get them hooked on anime creating more Otakus and adding more to the pack like how I did with a bunch of my kohai in orchestra club. However, the majority of the kids are too young for the approach I used on my kohai since I used more shounen anime with more violence with blood as well as anime with comedy you need to be a little more older to understand. I don’t want them to watch that kind of stuff just in case their parents get angry. So any suggestions? FYI some current things they like watching is Steven universe, teen titans go, the loud house, and the amazing world of gumball. That said, please recommend some good ones with Dub because I don’t want to suddenly show a subbed show. Also don’t let it be one with a long season and old animation like naruto and one piece.
    Also note that the youngest is 6 and the oldest is almost 12

    • Eureka 7 (actually probably not due to graphic violence in later episodes)
    • Toradora (good story with no violence)
    • Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (who the hell do you think you are)


    • School Days (fun for the whole family) (kill me)

    My Hero Academia and One-Punchman are safe bets. Recently animated and relatively short seasons. Ages you listed are too young for Attack on Titan or I would suggest that too. Would probably get the parents angry at you for giving their 6 year olds nightmares.


    edit:Actually now that I thought about it more, Space Dandy might be an even better choice than My Hero Academia. Ive never met anyone who didnt like it. Something about it that all normies love.

    Anime to get kids hooked? Madoka Magika!

    Alright then! What kids might like would be on the lines of Pokemon, Digimon and Card Captour Sakura. You can sneak in Yuri on Ice to teach them about... life. Or you can watch funny things like My Wife is a Mermaid and Konosuba. Gargantia on the desolate planet (?) Is also good.

    I just lock the channel to kid's channel, and done. Two hours of relaxation.

    They usually show those Kamen Rider shows, Larva, Boboiboy or Upin & Ipin.
