PONYO is a Japanese animated film in which a goldfish falls in love with a boy who lives in the local village.

Threat

In one scene, the heroine is caught in a trawler's net, and in another scene a tsunami threatens a village; however, there are reassuring outcomes.

There is an isolated use of very mild bad language ('jerk'), and a scene in which a woman tells her son that a character is a 'freak show', before swiftly telling him that people should not judge others strictly by appearance.

In one scene, a child lights a match from a box of safety matches; however, the context is fantastical as the matches are used on a candle that has been greatly increased in size via the use of magic.
