With fuss over the content of late night anime as vociferous as ever, anime fans have been pondering the question of whether there really are any late night anime titles which are safe for family viewing, and if so, what they are.

Some of the suggestions on offer naturally tend to raise as many questions about the respondents and their families as they do about the content of late night anime:


“Isn’t that full of boobs?”

“Yes, but the difference is they do not look as if they are there to excite the viewer.”

“Right, those are not for show, like TLR or Qwaser or whatever.”

“Ano Hana.”

“Ika Musume!”

“Azumanga Daioh.”

“The Tatami Galaxy.”

“Clannad, surely?”

“I managed to watch Code Geass with them.”

“Akagi went down well with my father, and the rest of the family.”



“Hidamari Sketch.”

“Yosuga no Sora.”


“Ladies vs Butlers.”



“Ichigo Marshmallow!!!”

“Kill Me Baby.”

“Nanatsu Iro.”

“Strike Witches.”

“Elfen Lied.”

“This calls for Usagi Drop!”

“Usagi Drop.”

“School Days!”

“I managed to watch most things with my family… but that toothbrushing scene was out!”

“My mom really loved Toradora.”

Is it wrong to watch Yosuga with your little sister?”

See also some of their efforts to rank the titles most unlikely to cause outrage, ostracism and embarrassment, and in particularly severe cases, disinheritance.

    Twincest > Regular incest.

    regular incest > fake incest (stepsiblings, adopted)

    At least Yosuga didn't fail in this regard.

    TBH I think regular incest (age differences) > twin incest. Twincest is more like masturbation. Even if you do happen to be opposite genders.

    Hate that cop out. Yabuki better not do that with Mikan.
    That new twincest anime being made, Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankei Nai yo ne does that cop out in the LN or manga.

    I'm completely uninterested in incest, fake or real, so long as it involves males.

    Comment by Anonymous

    And if you are male you will dream a couple of lesbos go to bed to have sex only with you?!
    About the topic .. After all this is why there is censorship
    But past midnight will make good sense or not the children seeing WHAT is not appropriate for age ..

    Now will want to spend the whole night in Disney Channel style in all channels??

    My mother is baptist so that writes of allot of stuff, no porn or to violent for sure.

    My dad likes the action ones especially the ones with a good soundtrack. His favorite is cowboy beebop!

    My brother likes everything non kiddie. So if it has a rating of G he avoids it like the plague.

    My sister in law likes yuri...

    Oh shit.

    My parents think that my brother and I have mental issues just because at >30yo we still watch anime.
    My mother thinks anything drawn should be "funny" like Tom&Jerry or Looney Tunes, otherwise it's "boring" and "stupid". I tried showing her something easy, like Cagliostro or other Miyazaki/Ghibli movies (surely Totoro), but to no avail.
    Should I show them Higurashi or Elfen Lied, I'd probably get kicked out of home T_T

    To all sankakuers with open-minded parents: lucky bastards!

    whatever the reason or the genre they dont know that i watched those kind of anime e.g. higurashi,elfen,DMWLand or any oppai anime, for my parents anime is just cartoons then cartoons is for kids so anime is for kids which is WRONG1

    I would agree with the parents on this one. Why not Fullmetal Alchemist? That would make more sense, and could later on ease them into Elfen Lied with other titles, but no, you didn't.

    Elfen Lied is a awesome show, but you clearly gave them the wrong example of a good anime. Use some tact Yan and maybe your parents would respect your opinion more if you were more sensitive to the shows you claim you love.

    And that goes for every other ignorant sankaku complex user here. Don't be an idiot, it's a disgrace upon you and your family.

    Fiction is just that: fiction.

    No one should be ashamed by what they read/watch.

    That may be true but that doesn't stop people from judging you.
    And in most societies, what your parents think of you matters quite a bit.

    Which is ironic considering you often hear that one should live how they want yet we are judged by it. xP

    Ok Anon that is really sick, not judging you I'm wondering what the creator was on. Stuffing cockroaches, bleck! At least something normal like a candle or your penis.

    I know fiction is fiction, in any moment I'm actually afraid of watching Elfen Lied with them. I actually think it's a good idea, I was just saying that I'm pretty sure that would be their reaction.

    All of my friends and parents know I like loli.
    All of them know I watch hentai.
    And all of them know I fap to it.

    But I don't believe they judge me as a creepy pervert or some sort of thing people wouldn't like. I just don't really know the meaning of "shame".

    I read a doujinshi where a man kidnaps a 5 year old girl and fist a bunch of cockroaches into her vagina. Dont judge me!

    Eureka seveN (And AO now)
    Darker than Black (my fam like that one)
    Last Exile (and this one)

    But sadly that's all there is, and Darker than Black isn't even appropriate for children.
