Good show, but very violent.

Great show, very fun, but also very gritty and violent. One character gets his head unexpectedly blown off, there’s a bunch of profanity, and a ton of monster blood. This is definitely not a show for younger kids.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (3):

Viewers will no doubt be surprised to find that this anime series succeeds where its live-action predecessors fell flat. Just as action packed and exciting as the original films, Pacific Rim: The Black also manages to be heartfelt with moments of real poignancy thanks to the underlying theme of family love. Episodes are gorgeously animated and, when combined with the series' top-notch voice actors, have an undeniably high production value. The story is also compelling, fast-paced, and delightfully interspersed with moments of wry humor.
