Hi Taylor Richardson,
Thank you for the comment!

“o-mamori” means “amulet” “charm” and “Kore wa o-mamori desu ka?” is translated “Is this a (good luck) charm?” in English.

Kore and kono mean ‘this’ and sore and sono mean ‘that.’
However, kore and sore are followed by particles and kono and sono are followed by nouns.

I was wondering what the difference was between: kore, sore, and are and kono, sono, and ano were.

Thank you for the post. We will consider making the video.
When Japanese people say ‘anata’, you have to think about the relationships between a speaker and a listener, and the situations.
Almost all time the speakers are senior that the other which means there is a up-and-down relationship.
Or they might be a married couple or a parent and a child.
The situations is that the speaker doesn’t want call the listener’s name because the speaker wants to take a distance from the listener or the speaker doesn’t need to use the listener’s name because they are so close.
