Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This paranormal mystery drama attracts viewers both old and new to the franchise with a suspenseful but heartfelt sequel series. Despite its nostalgic, cutesy art style, Akuma Kun is a surprisingly dark show with mature themes about the human condition. That said, each mystery tackles big topics in engaging ways -- being thoughtful, but not preachy about how to build a happier world. But viewers should be wary that more sensitive audiences may find the violence and fear factor too upsetting.
