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.

Excellent Anime creation

my kids like pokemon and really wanted to watch this movie, so i watched first because of the review of where it says people die, and i was impressed, no one actually dies, and the ending is really heartwarming and i think this a great kids movie.
