I don't know why Adult Swim gave this show a TV-14 rating when on the DVD and Blu-ray releases it's rated TV-MA
age 16+

definitely in my top 3 anime would recommend for 16+ but if you are really mature then lower should be ok.

Don't let your child watch this if there a kid its very toxic; a lot of swearing money sex drinking and a lot of blood. overall is an amazing anime. watch it yourself before you let your kids
