Did we miss something on diversity?

Very, very nice anime!

This may as well be one of the best anime out there. No filler- give that a checkmark. More appropriate to kids- another checkmark. And a theme song that is so catchy, it had me humming it. I do not watch this with my child, no, because in the age range of teens and tweens, it is PERFECT. The only bad thing I have to say about this cartoon is the excessive violence, which gets to be a lot for the younger watchers, even if you are watching with them. Amazingly perfect cartoon for teens and tweens, and with adult supervision, younger viewers too. 4 stars because of the violence and younger viewers.
