Nothing wrong with it

I watch it with my 5 year old because I enjoy it too and I’ve witnessed nothing sexual at all or anything that would be questionable for a kid. It is a tiny bit violent of course because they are fighting villains. Teaches about friendship and love and it’s positive.

Really Great

This series is great it does has some mild violence with these “distains” and violence is really mild and has some horror but it’s choldren based.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (14 ):

This anime series is big on girl power and emphasizes how a group benefits from individuals' positive characteristics being put to good use. The most prominent example is in Maya, a do-gooder who puts others' needs before her own even before she assumes a Glitter Force alter ego. Once transformed, she's able to act fully on her compassion and throw herself into the cause of finding the princess and restoring peace to Splendorius.

Glitter Force Doki Doki has a lot of what young girls tend to like: fantasy, magic, powerful female characters, and the idea of far-off kingdoms and royalty. Unfortunately, though, it also has some images that are less than perfect for impressionable girls, including twiggy teens whose outfits are designed to show off their long legs and tiny waists. Ultimately, you must decide whether the good outweighs the questionable in this generally well-conceived anime series.
