age 14+

A bit gruesome for younger kids

At the start of the third episode a whole bunch of people are killed, including several children.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 11+

Has many positive messages and good for mature kids!

There is nothing inappropriate about this show and no curse words. I believe it is TV-MA because of it's violence. It does show blood, but obviously it's just an anime. It isn't real, so no need to fret! It was actually a nice show and many characters are helpful and kind!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
