MY NEIGHBOURS THE YAMADAS is a Japanese animated drama with English subtitles, 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 "some dirty books", and verbal references to people who may be "having an affair".

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 gang having murdered a Senior Citizen, but this is not shown. There's also a fantasy sequence where the dad imagines himself as a superhero, being shot at by gangsters. Very mild bad language includes the terms "screwed up" and "jerk".
