An awful review of a good anime.

Anyone who actually knows about Devilman at this point knows that it is not for the younger crowd. The problem is that the reviewers of Common Sense Media are all such little snowflakes whose prude ideals are so out of whack that you could get a better review out of a soggy piece of cardboard. Joyce especially has proven she is the sycophant to end all sycophants. Clearly she was so shaken by the sight of a pair of breasts in Devilman Crybaby the message the anime was trying to make went right over her head. The eschewing of empathy, trust, and love can lead to terrible repetitious tragedy. It goes without saying Common Sense Media, a misnomer if there ever was one, is not a place anyone should look for an unbiased review. I can say that by all means that this is not a family friendly fare. Mature audiences obviously.
