You might think that all anime is good for teens to watch, but there are some very sexual and violent series out there that say otherwise. This list ranks over thirty great anime for teens, including shows that are fun and entertaining without being too graphic. If you have a teenage son or daughter, you can't really go wrong with any of the anime on this list. If you're a teenager reading this, don't worry- these aren't toned down shows for babies or anything, they're all great shows that adults love just as much as teenagers.

Is there a good anime for teenagers that we left off the list? Please add as many shows as you want, as long as they are appropriate for teens.
