Shueisha’s Weekly Shounen Jump! manga magazine has introduced some very unforgettable series back in a lot of people’s childhoods, and it would only be fitting if parents wanted to share their fond childhood anime with kids. Some of Weekly Shounen Jump!’s manga-turned-anime have gone on to become classics, and the Japanese Women’s website, MyNavi Woman, has polled 405 women between the ages of 22 and 34 to vote for which Shounen Jump! anime they want their kids to watch. Here are the Top 10:

8,9,10 TIE

Captain Tsubasa


Assassination Classroom




7 – Hikaru no Go


6 – City Hunter


5 – Rurouni Kenshin


4 – Dr. Slump


3 – Dragon Ball


2 – One Piece


1 – Slam Dunk


It was a close one, as  Slam Dunk, which got 13.3% of the votes, edged out One Piece, which had 12.8% of the votes. One voter said that she voted for Slam Dunk because of the friendship and comedy, while one voter for One Piece said that she voted for the series she said she wanted her kids to grow up to be adventurous.
