MY NEIGHBOURS THE YAMADAS is a Japanese animated drama with an English language soundtrack, about the everyday life of an ordinary family.

Sex

Occasional mild sex references, such as a teenage boy suggesting to friends they go and buy the new "swimsuit edition" of a magazine, and verbal references to people who may be "having an affair" and "fooling around".

Other issues include a sequence where the youngest child is accidentally left behind at a shopping centre, with a sense of panic as everyone looks for her, but the child is very calm and deals with the situation sensibly. There are undetailed verbal references to a road accident in which a child was killed, and to a gang having murdered a Senior Citizen, but these events are not shown. There's also a fantasy sequence where the dad imagines himself as a superhero, being shot at by gangsters.
