Very good show, has a lot of violence

It was a pretty violent show but is not as gory as other animes. I think it deserves it's MA15+ but would be okay for some children if they are mature and have watched other animes. And besides the anime is not that graphic in violence.

It’s pretty good for 11+ and I think

In this anime there is gore but if you have a child that can handle or watched , squid game , my hero and more animes like those they should be fine it does have gore and that’s way ,I have children who watch it and I watched it with them and it kinda reminds me of stranger things almost ,anyways the whole point is that the brother comes back to find out his family has passed away due to demons and the only one alive is his sister whom is slowly turning into a demon and he sets to avenge his family and cure his sister,it’s also a great remodel it shows the love for the younger sister.but must be mature and ATLEAST 11+ !!
