YES i love japanese animation, its better than the load of crap they show on the tv these days.
id never let my future children ever watch any of this american garbage that they show on tv, id just download an appropriate anime series and they can go nuts LOl
might even be extracurricular, not only does it help teach them how to read with the subtitles, if its a fansub, they usually put in editorial notes and explain in very nice detail, the puns and even background information for what theyre discussing in the series, so foreigners like myself can understand, without having to go ”??? i wonder what they mean by that”.
also the kids might end up picking up japanese on their own which is highly unlikely, but it happens, you’d be amazed of how much jap you can figure out by yourself watching it for ages.
anyway, i love anime, and that’s just my 2 cents, i have too much time on my hands atm =_=;;;
