A couple of my friends here have the coolest 5 year old. He's obsessed with Gundam, quotes Foamy and sings his songs (illwillpress.com), wears all the superhero gear, plays all the console games, and macks on all the girls.

I'm told he grew up with posters ranging from Sailor Moon to Gundam around his crib. A true otaku from birth.

So anyone give any thought to when they'll start corrupting their kid, or already raising a little anime hellion?

Serious answer in which i got carried away and became not serious at all:
lol wow, well im not planning on corrupting my kid so soon. well when i have kids i wont corrupt them that much so young, the most ill do is let them watch anime in place of that stupid idiotic purple dinosaur becuz i dont want my children to grow up with problems and i dont want to torture them that much... *flashback* "lets see whats in the barney bag kids!" "NO I DONT WANT TO SEE anything IN YOUR f#@!#!@% bag okay" "alright heree we go" "NO MOM SHUT IT OFF TURN IT OFF please ILLL clean MY ROOM Ill WasH THE dishes pleasee" *end of flashback* *whimpers* (lol just kidding)

Serious Answer:
Well when they are young i guess ill expose them to a multitude of things including anime. Once they are old enough ill let them choose for themselves as long as its appropriate for their age (i mean they cant watch hentai no way!) so if they like to watch anime then they can watch that. Ill probably expose them to american stuff more than anime since its more available for kids here, i mean there arent lots of anime for kids. well the point is if my kid turns out like the one you described ill be fine if he likes macking on girls ^_^ (if that doesnt cause any problems) and watching gundam.

The Truth:
Thats my opinion wich will have no effect what so ever since my wife will have final say bcuz im that kind of person whos opinion never has much of an effect. The whole paragraph now has no purpose sine it isnt going to happen... oh well it gave me something to do to pass the time, yeah thinking what i would do if i had the choice. okay ive for the real answer to that question ill go ask my gf what she thinks about it and edit my answer lol ^_^ just kidding (i dont even have a gf *sad face*) wow i could write so much of what i would do if my life was perfect and i could decide everything and theoritically everything went fine, Im serious look forward to it in the spam lounge sometime soon. Ill write it and post it. wow i hope im not boring you Shkira, lol, sorry i get carried away sometimes. actually i KNOW im boring you so sorry.

Haha, no, not boring me. I was amused with your example! ^_^

There seems to be some wholesome anime for kids, but I don't think they'd help American kids so much as Japanese. But, it's not like I've watched Bottle Fairy dubbed, maybe it's ok... O_o

I think that anime can definately teach some values, just not as obvious as muppet shows... ^_^;;;

Cancel

lol ^_^ okay i agree if i searched enough there probably is anime for kids. Maybe ill let them watch fansubs so they will learn to read ^_^

I've got a son who's just over a year, and I'm a gamer geek. I've still got my old NES, snes, Genesis w/ Sega CD, and Dreamcast... I got rid of the N64 since I have it emulated... though I have the systems I just named emulated as well. <shrug> When he's ready, I'll let him start with the NES, then move through the generations to my PS2 and Xbox, then to whatever's new at the time. I want him to have an appreciation for how far gaming has come since it's early days, unlike so many kids out there who start their gaming lives on Xbox and claim that all older systems suck. They may not have had the graphics of today's games, but most of them had substance, and many had excellent, thought-provoking stories.
Um, as for anime, I'll let him watch whatever he wants to (provided it's age-appropriate), though I think it'd be great if he liked anime more than American toons, which seem to be taking a sharp decline. I can't flip through the channels during the day and find a single decent cartoon anymore, especially one that doesn't border on (or surpass) adult humor, which a young, impressionable mind shouldn't be viewing in the first place. There's plenty of anime out there which is appropriate for younger viewers, and as the years go by, that amount only increases.
Thanks for allowing me to rant. ^_^

Have to agree with you on that one. And a good idea, like an intellectual way of going about it rather than spoiling with the new-edge things.

Aside from cartoons, the "educational" kids programming seem too ridiculous. Instead of teaching them, it looks like they're dumbing them down...

Thank YOU for posting your opinion/views. I do like reading them! =^_^=

I started very early ^^ Around 2 1/2 - 3. My daughter had glimpses of Sailor Moon, and has watched "Kiki's Delivery Service" (once even with the Japanese!) countless times.

My work has only begun. Mwauauau.

I think you can introduce them to anything, like anime, and then as they grow older they make their own decisions on what they like and how much. Sort of how you're forced to watch Sesame Street or something and then you learn how lame it is or grow up past it and it's left behind you.

Anime though... it can evolve with you. Start with Miyazaki and when you're older move on to NGE and the like... ^_^;; So yea, that might be something to watch for! ~_^

I'm sure when (or if) I ever have children, I'll introduce them to anime when they are old enough to understand it. Dubbed anime when they are little, and once they can read better, I'll start showing them subbed anime. I'm sure it won't be the only thing they see, but I'd want them to appreciate anime and its artwork and music as much as they might appreciate American cartoons.

OK, my mates,

I'm 29, that's don't make me young, especially comparaire with you.
I plan to have a big family 3-4 kids (because I'm only child).
It's just as Shkira said, I don't feel like it this moment.
If I've got kids, I'll rather not be able things that I want to fulfill before.
And I don't want to get kids to old, I'd look more a grand-pa that a papa.
So, I'm on the edge of a decision...still cool and smooth.

Then I stop now to talk about myself, next time I'll try to give an answer of what I would do in the future with kids...
