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.

I have a 11 year old child who loves this game it’s very cute or kawaii as the kids say and I just love seeing her listen to these kawaii songs I listened to some and they are very educational and wholesome!! I recommend this game to be for ages 7-12

Some Mature Themes; But Fun & Offers Positive Messages

Only reason I suggest it should be for older teens is simply because of some of the songs on the game. While they are in Japanese, the lyrics when translated are pretty obvious on some things. For example, Ifudoudou is a song about girls discussing their sexual encounters (and the beginning of the song is essentially moaning). Another is Two-Faced Lover, which is a song about a girl getting pregnant and spiraling downwards in life. There are also darker topics in the songs that include suicide, as well as mental illness/breakdowns. And song even includes the lyrics, “What the hell’s going on?”, though it is not a major issue, it’s just a more obvious steer towards an older teen audience in my opinion. It is a fun game and the community is very nice though, and it seemed to be pretty protected against any bullying or harassment. And the stories are very positive, all have characters dealing with some issue about themselves/around them and learning to cope and express themselves through singing.
