Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Dumb anime, dumb movie

While the characters stick with their friends and even help people they barely know, it’s lost in some fairly unrealistic plot lines. What Common Sense fails to mention is the fact that there’s all sorts of merchandise associated with the movie and its parent franchise. One of the Digimon is also a humanoid “sexy” female angel of unrealistic dimensions and revealing attire.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much consumerism

This title has:

Great role models
