Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Children's manga (子供向け漫画 , kodomo-muke manga) and children's anime (子供向けアニメ , kodomo-muke anime) refer to manga and anime directed towards children 10 years and under. These series are usually moralistic, often educating children about staying in the right path in life. Each chapter is usually a self-contained story. Notable examples include Doraemon and Hello Kitty.


The annual Shogakukan Manga Award and Kodansha Manga Award each include a category for children's manga. The former first included a category for children's manga in 1981.
