It's Mother's Day, which means it's time to sit back, relax, grab your family and loved ones, and watch anime titles with some of the best mothers that fiction has ever shown us.

Between those mothers who go out of their way to protect their children and the ones who shaped the characters we love today into who they are, we can't help but feel impressed by these remarkable individuals. That's why we want to celebrate them with you and hope that you (and your loved ones) feel the warmth of their motherhood. Without further ado, here are nine anime you should stream on Mother's Day!

Anime with the best mothers

Without the mother of A Silent Voice, we wouldn't have the plot that we have in this film since it was Shoya Ishida's mother who pushed him to apologize to Shouko Nishimiya for bullying her relentlessly. She was also the one who bravely took the fall for Shoya before he was ready to come to terms with the fact that his actions severely hurt not just Shouko but also the people around him.

For this, we think you should start with A Silent Voice!

The anime film is extremely heartfelt, as it tells a story of redemption that will compel you to try to be more careful with the words you say and the actions you do. It's a timeless film that will leave you feeling closer to your loved ones, especially as you all shed a few tears appreciating the sentiments that range from the power of motherhood and the change that can come with a simple apology.

If you like what you've heard, be sure to head over to Amazon Prime Video or YouTube Movies to rent or buy A Silent Voice.

Next up, you absolutely should watch Spy x Family this Mother's Day!

Spy x Family is the epitome of the beauty of found family, as it follows the lives of three strangers who come together to pretend to be a family for a mission. However, in the midst of fighting crime and saving lives, Anya, the series' protagonist, is loved extensively by her father, Loid, and her mother, Yor.

Yor is a very special case in that, on the surface, you can't tell the extent of her abilities, but when it comes to protecting her baby girl, she'll fight to the end of the world or even kill if she has to. She always laments that she doesn't think she's doing a great job at raising Anya, yet there are several moments where you'll see Yor going above and beyond for her adopted daughter.

Simply put, Yor reminds us that mothers aren't always the people who gave birth to us. Rather, it's anyone who shows us unconditional love and protection every single day.

Spy x Family is now streaming on Crunchyroll and Hulu.

In addition to A Silent Voice and Spy x Family, here are a handful of other anime titles that feature an amazing mother or motherly figure that will fill you with glee on Mother's Day!

Maybe you're familiar with our picks on the list and would love to rewatch these anime titles from start to finish again. Or maybe you haven't heard of any of these shows and films and want to get to know them. No matter who you are, there's something for you and we hope that you and your loved ones enjoy any of these titles on Mother's Day!
