Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (7):

The plot may be too simplistic and formulaic for older viewers and too scary for the young kids whom the plot would satisfy.

You can expect anime's customary big-eyed characters, with some visuals within the frame remaining frozen while others move fluidly. Young anime fans who can handle the scares will enjoy the vibrant depictions of monsters, children flying through the air, blasts of magical lightning bolts, and fireworks displays.

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.
