Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Not for all teens

My 14 year old daughter loves this show. However, I would caution parents to watch this with you child to make sure you are okay with the messages, borderline inappropriate scenes, and language. It does open up a conversation for the LGBTQ+ teens which is good for the daughter. I do not think any child under 14 years old should watch this program. This is an older anime, so I understand the stereotyping and name calling which was more common and accepted in the early 2000s. This is why I suggest parents watch this show before letting their child.
