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+ !!

Don’t use the first episode as a gauge!!!

Demon Slayer is amazing for adults. The storyline is brilliant. Everything is well thought out and detailed. The characters are well developed and you develop emotional attachment to them. There is a lot of Japanese culture in the series and the animation is beautiful at times. The series explores what it means to be human and the different personalities in our world. It gets pretty deep. I watch it with my 8 year old son. He is absolutely obsessed with it. He’s 8 but we haven’t sheltered him from much at all growing up. He watched Deadpool (over and over) at age 6 with no issues. The first episode is quite disturbing. If you’re thinking you should sit down and watch the first episode with your child and see how it goes, be warned that Tanjiro, the main character, find almost his entire family dead…including the little ones. This sets up the storyline and resurfaces throughout. It’s essential to the story. I thought my son would be horrified by it, relating it to his own family, but he was emotionally moved by it instead. If they can make it through the first episode they can make it though the series. But the first episode is emotionally brutal! The show develops surrounding this theme and your emotional attachment to the characters causes you to cheer on the demon slayers as they work to clear their world of the demons. If your child is going through a phase of fear of their family dying, you might want to wait on this show. If you think they won’t be able to handle animated depictions of children being injured and bloodied, stay away. If you do you will be missing an amazing experience. My suggestion is to watch a few episodes first. You won’t be able to stop! Then you can prepare and discuss. Also be prepared to spend $ on the figures and there are plenty of knock-offs. The person who gave the show a bad rating is missing pretty much everything. There is a lot of detail in the show that you can miss if you just have it on in the background. It needs your full attention and sometimes a second or third viewing to catch all of the subtle messages and jokes as well as the fine detail in the fight scenes, which seem to whiz by rather quickly. The support characters are bumbling idiots..but the point is that anyone can do something if they set their mind to it and their heart is in the right place! Demon Slayer is adapted from mangas (Japanese graphic novels). You can stream Demon Slayer by downloading the Crunchyroll app. They have figures as well as these other trusted sources: Big Bad Toystore Entertainment Earth FYE Gamestop Beware of fakes on Amazon!!! Trust with caution those shipped and sold from Amazon.com You can trust companies such as BanDai, Sega & Figuarts

the odd review

good show for teens. 10/10

If my nine year old can watch this then mature teens can. The gore is cartoonish but it can be intense. In episode 6 there is a gory death. The first few episodes are rated MA but IMO they are some of the cleanest. All in all this show should probably be rated 13 and up but is a great show for teens.

Great anime, it pretty violent though!

This is an amazing anime for beginners and Weebs! The plot is that of a young boy who comes home to his family being slaughtered by what he thinks to be a bear, he discovers his sister is still warm, and has been turned into a demon. On his way to town to get her to medical attention he runs into a demon slayer that informs him of demons, and that it was a demon who killed his family. The boy then sets out with his sister to become a demon slayer, defeat the demon who killed his family and to keep others safe from demons. Along the way he meets amazing friends. This anime has great role models, with the main character being incredibly kind. The great quotes kind of shed light on the great messages seen throughout the show, such as, "I wont let you down, no matter what it takes," "Everything I couldn't do for them, I will do for you," "The whole time I was just grinning and bearing it," Characters fight for there dreams, positive messages of teamwork are shown, as well as the concept of respect for others. There are some deeper topics kids should be a little older to understand but otherwise messages are great. There is not much sexual content in this show, a few crushes and blushing. There is one character who really likes woman and in a jealous rant he talks about girls boobs and butts, but overall no sexual content. The gore and violence in this is heavy but not as violent as some of the other animes I have watched. It is violent, but only during the fights, any other episode that doesn't have battles in them share no violence at all. although the fights to get pretty violent. There is a lot of blood. Blood is mainly shown when the demons have just had a victim, not so much in the fight unless its from open wounds. The way a demon slayer kills a demon is only by slicing off its head, demons fight back and usually mark the demon slayers. Multiple limbs are severed and there is one scene when a character is punched through the stomach, although it doesn't show it happening and only the demons arm through his stomach. If your kid can handle this much violence its fine, but it is pretty dark. No drugs or drinks, sometimes they show a drunk character rarely. Swearing consists mainly of bastard, hell, and damn. Over all good anime. -13 year old

Let’s say your kid has been watching avatar the last airbender since age 8 or 9 for 2 years and Netflix kids account has nothing…. Kick in on Hulu and if your kid is 11 or 10 then you should let them watch this masterpiece.
