It’s fine

It’s realistic in a sense and if a good show for kids in my opinion

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
age 16+

Adult natural disasters anime

This show is wonderful for adults and mature late teens. This is NOT an anime meant for children and should be watched with caution. It is very dark and gory with some adult scenes. It’s a wonderful intense anime about Japan sinking due to earthquakes. There are lots of violent and gory scenes

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
