So to keep it simple, the anime listed here mainly cover a cast of preteens from various genres but each story carries the spirit of youth transforming into a bright future. For those of you who have been watching anime for a while, some of these will be familiar to you. Without giving too much away I will write brief blurbs on each one I plan to spotlight this time around.
Although this story is definitely in a seinen category it is a survivalist anime about the bridge between the naivete of children and the maturity of adulthood.
Card Captor Sakura
This anime needs no introduction but I figure I add it to this list as a heartwarming story of a young magical girl with a true heart of gold.
Abenobashi no Aracde
Underneath the bat shit crazy plots of the first few episodes, it’s a story about two kids parting ways and their town’s history that goes back generations in their families.
Hare & Guu
Is just a wild story of two kids and their family in the jungle messing around.
Kodomo no Omocha
A young child idol juggles her schedule on-screen and off-screen.
Old, new, and remade! Depending on the kiddo they can find comedy, meaning, adventure, thrill and love in these precious series that are so dear to my heart.
