The first day of school starts on Tuesday, and the theme song for your kids’ favorite shows will be on the air.
How are you going to convince them that watching anime is cool?
The first thing that most parents ask their kids about when they get home from school is anime.
“I think most parents are more worried about their kids wanting to get into anime and the other things that are fun,” said Lauren D’Angelo, co-founder and executive director of the American Anime Society, an organization that promotes the art of anime in the U.S. The society has been working to introduce parents to anime since its inception in 2011.
“We’re hoping that this will be a very easy way to get kids to start watching anime, and to have them have fun with it,” she said.
“There’s no stigma attached to anime, so it’s an easy way for kids to get their own little slice of the world, their own style of fun, without having to spend money on a big, expensive, premium product.”
D’angelo and her organization have been doing this for years, and they have some success.
In 2014, the anime industry made $2.9 billion in global sales, and in 2017, it was the second-largest anime industry in the world behind only Disney, according to a 2016 study by the International Anime Center.
The anime industry’s success is thanks in part to the success of other anime, like Spirited Away and Ghost in the Shell.
The second-highest grossing anime film of all time, Spirited Out, made $1.3 billion worldwide in its first week of release.
It grossed $1,069 million domestically, according the New York Times.
The film also won best picture at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017.
In 2018, the industry is expected to be worth $14.7 billion, according a report from NPD Group.
That’s about half the value of all the films made in 2017 and less than half the number of movies released in 2020.
So what’s so special about anime?
For starters, anime is not the only genre that gets kids excited.
There are also a lot of new kids coming into the hobby.
“A lot of people are really curious about new things, new stories, and new things to look at,” D’Angelos said.
“[I] think we see this as the way to build our kids’ curiosity and interest.”
One of the biggest reasons anime has taken off is because kids are getting into it because it’s fun.
“Kids are really interested in new things and stories, which is really important for them,” D’mangelo said.
Anime is a great way to introduce kids to new ideas, and it’s also a great opportunity to show them what they’re missing out on with traditional education.
“You’re missing the chance to do these things that your parents did and really enjoy these things, so anime is a way to give them the opportunity to learn a lot from you,” D’,Angelo said.
In addition to showing kids anime, D’angelos says they can also use it as an opportunity to build a bond with their children.
“Children will really enjoy being able to interact with each other in real life and to really be able to talk to each other,” she added.
“They’ll love the fact that they can really relate to each another.”
The Japanese have a very similar approach.
Their country has a very different approach to education, and many people say that Japanese education has become less about learning about the history of Japan, and more about the cultural aspects of Japan.
While Japanese parents are focused on developing a culture that kids will respect, the Japanese also teach their children to embrace other cultures.
“It’s a very interesting concept to us because in the West, we’re always telling our kids, ‘You have to learn English or learn Japanese,’ ” D’Anangelo said, “but in Japan, they teach us how to love and relate to our neighbors.”
What do kids need to know about anime to get them into it?
The most important thing to kids is to watch an anime.
That can’t be stressed enough.
“The best thing you can do is to get the most out of your kids and learn about their favorite shows,” D’sangelo said in an interview with CNN.
But you can’t just go and watch a lot, either.
There’s no need to watch too much.
“When you get into the anime business, there’s always going to be a little bit of filler to get you into the next show,” D’rellos said, adding that it’s important to start with shows that you know and like.
“But as you get deeper and deeper into the business, you’re going to find that anime is the perfect vehicle for building a relationship with your children,” she continued.
That said, if you’re looking for a show that your kids can really dig, you can start
