Anime, the classy animated form of storytelling from Japan, has become quite popular with people across different countries around the globe. If you are an animation lover, you must certainly not miss the various Japanese animated series featured on the Cartoon Network or at a local blockbuster in your city. But, if you think these series are meant exclusively for boys, you are wrong.
The unique ‘Shojo Anime’ is made exclusively for a young female audience. Unlike other series that focus more on violent battles and politics, it places more emphasis on personal relationships. In fact, it is the best choice if you are looking for a gift for your little daughter, sister, or a little female cousin.
Here are a few must-see series for kids:
1) Fushigi Yuugi
It is a story of a young girl, Miaka, who accidentally falls through a portal in a book and gets transported to ancient China, where she is declared a priestess who is required to invoke a particular god and call the Celestial Warriors to save the world. At the same time, she must deal with routine things like exams in her own world!
2) Fruits Basket
One of the hottest sellers in the US, the Fruit Basket series is a story of an orphaned high school girl, Tohru Honda, who bumps into a cursed Sohma family. Owing to the curse, the members of this well-to-do family transform into animals of the Chinese zodiac when hugged by a member of the opposite sex. The story is all about Tohru’s struggle to break this curse. Strong plotlines, side-splitting situations, and charming characters have made this anime popular and worth watching.
Other must-watch Shojo anime videos include ‘Angel Sanctuary’, ‘Princess Tutu’, and ‘Here is Greenwood’. These Japanese series are not only entertaining, but also very useful for kids. So, next time, when you plan to get your kids something really entertaining, do consider buying a set of ‘Shojo Anime’ videos.
