The perfect the show for young teens

A good show for teens of ages thirteen and up. There is a lot of language as one of the character has quite the bad mouth. There isn't any sex, just clothing that reveals a little bit of cleavage. If your kid can watch a movie like black panther they can watch this. It gets the tv-ma rating because of the language.

Is It Any Good?

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

This quirky series, which was created by The Boondocks' LeSean Thomas, offers a story world that combines elements of classic anime fantasy with black culture. Folks who enjoy the traditional anime experience will certainly find it here, including the hero's journey, the fight against evil, and the relationships between person and machine. But it also creates a unique viewing experience that allows for some interesting, well-developed characters that drive the show's dark humor and fast-paced action. Cannon Busters is edgy and fun, and if you're fans of the comic book series, or like Thomas' cutting-edge work, you will not be disappointed.
