Common Sense Media. let's please not go further into Otaku culture

We don't want anime to get a worse reputation as it does. Please don't review anime with ecchi (sexual focused but not porn) content. The same with anime that have incest,tentacle sex,demon on human rape, and loli/shota. don't review any anime with the things that I have listed.

very good but there is mild language like ass, damn, hell and bitch and mild nudity and sexual content but it does have a lot of messages that let you know everybody needs a friend or someone they can talk to

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
Too much swearing
