Watched an Anime called Pom Poko, where Tanuki use their balls as a weapon.
A film by Studio Ghibli, released by Disney. Its about raccoons facing human progress in Japan as their forest is being depleted by construction to build more urban residences and whatnot. Yes, an environmental awareness Anime.
While this sentiment fits for a Ghibli film, the fact that they are not Raccoons but Tanuki (which are more or less the same, but stay with me on this), whose powers include shape shifting, as seen here, along with the ability of using their testicles as gliders and even anvils to attack the humans below as they declare war to preserve their home.
They are displayed constantly.
This is what a Tanuki is, what it is represented for. His huge ballsack.
As whimsical as this could appear to some, I am not precisely agreeable that it would be fit as an overall family film.
