This is an amazing anime. There is absolutely no nude, sex, or sexual talk in this show. The only thing is a kiss scene, but there's a kiss scene in almost every movie or show so it should be fine. There are fight scenes though, which is basically what Dragon Ball Super is all about. I would give this a 9 and up just because the fighting may be a little scary for little kids. But overall this is an amazing anime masterpiece. Highly recommend.

Another chapter in this very popular franchise is welcome news for anyone who's followed the characters' story through two previous series. With the favorites back in action, fans can once again cheer on their efforts against villains bent on domination and destruction. Thus it's no surprise that battles and violence take center stage throughout this story's evolution, making this another instance in which knowing your kids' tolerance for such content is of vital importance.

Dragon Ball Super is a complex story with many characters, each of whom brings his or her own history to the fray. Kids who haven't seen the preceding series may feel a step behind as this tale unfolds, so don't be surprised if they want to backtrack and watch the others as well.
