Amazing Storyline for MATURE TEENS

This is for the tv show on Netflix::::::There’s a lot of cartoon blood. Nothing serious. But in many scenes blood is dripping off people’s bodies. Also, people get impales, stabbed, ripped to shreds, and hit with a sword. It’s nothing serious but there is Puddles of blood shown in it. But there is sexual content. The main character continuously inappropriately touches a girls boobs and butt. With sexual inter course insinuated. There is minor language. But in more intense scenes foul language is used. I haven’t heard the F BOMB yet. But it may be coming. In everyday dialogue language doesn’t appear to often. It’s a cartoon but meant for older teens. It’s funny and has a great storyline. However, I would not recommend the movie to younger people AT ALL. I don’t think they would be able to enjoy it with the visual minor gore. It’s heavy compared to a kids show. Just remember parents and kids, choose your entertainment carefully. You Can’t unsee it.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

In just the first few minutes of this role-playing game adventure, it's obvious that this has been created for the more hard-core fans of the anime/manga series. From the deep roster of available characters to the wide range of cosmetic customizations to the sheer magnitude of Easter eggs waiting to be discovered, if you're a fan of the series, The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross has something that's sure to entice you to give it a go. Plus, there's no way to deny that the game's presentation is absolutely gorgeous. In many ways, it looks more like you're watching an episode of the anime than playing a game. The question is, once you look past the pandering and fluff, is there any real substance left to keep players coming back?

The main gameplay in Grand Cross is simple to a fault. Each character in your team comes with a small number of abilities that can be used to attack or combined into more powerful versions of those attacks. These Ultimate moves are often performed with lots of flourish and flair, but still leave players just going through the motions. And even though the game has a massive roster of characters to collect and use, the truth is that once you have a couple of particularly strong characters, there's never really much reason to switch out. Meanwhile, special features like the costumes and dressing rooms serve little purpose other than changing up a few cosmetics while encouraging an almost uncomfortable level of ogling, particularly for the female characters. Unfortunately, the end result is a gorgeous but repetitive mess that's mostly flash with little substance.
