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.

lots of lessons and top of the line emotional connect with characters

first things first i am 18 and do not know about anything close to parenting, that being said i understand that parents want the best of experiences for their children and in my opinion this is the best cartoon u can possibly show to ur juniors , they ll experience everything from emotional connectivity with people , bitter betrayals the most unexpected ones. the instinct of survivability, the pain , the joy and on top of all the value of freedom and the theory of relativity about how freedom for one individual can be equivalent to utter destruction for another . to describe in short its something like the lessons of whole life compacted into an anime.those were the upsides and trust me i suggest watching it to every one and personally watching it was the best of all the decisions i have made . But since you might be a parent i must also enlist somethings that i wont like children below the ages of lets say 10 or 12 in some countries cuz it literally varies with cultures so i cant give an exact number, thats going to be the blood shed and the utmost degree of violence . clear depictions of mothers being eaten alive in front their offsprings. the show literally initiates with that , but i will conclude my review by saying that one single anomalie can be outlooked in front of the innumerable upsides. now trust me after all this if u decide to watch its going to be a fantastic experience and it most certainly leave an unforgettable impact behind . all the best for the good times ahead

One action packed show

Attack on Titan is an excellent show with a lot to offer. You have an option of watching it with subtitles or watching it in English dub because it is originally in Japanese. Both are great, but I prefer the English dub for this show. With 75 episodes each 24 minutes spanned between 4 seasons it will take you a while to watch it. After watching the first episode you will be hooked and you’ll want to binge the entire series, so you can watch the fifth and final season coming to Crunchyroll and Funimation on January 9th, 2022. I don’t advise watching this show with children because there are many violent scenes and it has some coarse language. You will thoroughly enjoy Attack on Titan if you enjoy action and suspense shows.
