Children's manga (子供向け漫画 Kodomomuke manga) and children's anime (子供向けアニメ kodomomuke anime) are Japanese terms which literally mean "manga (or "anime", respectively) directed towards children". These works are noted for stories that are often very moralistic, teaching children how to behave as good and considerate people. The episodes are generally stand alone and non-episodic in order to appeal to a child.
