Kokoro Connect is a slice of life/mystery
Each one is put through a trial of challenges that pushes some of them close to the edge (emotionally), and at other times: threatens their friendship.

It’s a psychological/horror show that’s not as bloody as others, but it’s portrayed in a way that showing your parents shouldn’t be an issue.
It’s deep, meaningful and realistic. Highlighting some of the darkest parts of human nature, without being obscene about it.
Clannad is a legendary romance, slice of life series at this point. And is one of the innovators of the whole “wholesome romance turned dark” element.
Don’t worry, it’s still the kind of
It’s relatable to both parents and anyone in general (especially as far as romance and relationships).
This is more of a “grown up” slice of life series about Kaizaki Arata. A 27 year old NEET (not in employment or education/training) who’s struggling to find work and live his life.

Along the way she learns what it means to be loved, cared for, laugh, and be part of a loving family.
100% appropriate to watch with family.
15. The Journey Of Elaina
The Journey Of Elaina is exactly that. Elaina’s the journey, the main character, and the things she see’s and documents along the way.
Sometimes it’s weird stuff, other times it’s life changing, or life threatening. And other times it’s educational and silly.
Just like any intentional journey a person starts in real life.

There’s genuine shock value in this
