I tottaly think this is a great anime to watch it dose have tension in scenes but it shouldn’t be a problem for kids that are mature I’m 36 and I know this anime is not and for children at the same time there is blood and let’s say some wear “bathingsuits” But if ur child isnt mature for that it’s fine there is nothing really wrong I love this anime SO THAT BEING SAID... 10+ yeahhh hmhm

Soul Eater review

Soul eater is an amazing show so I will be reviewing it in case you were curious. Sex: • there is not much sex in this show except for one scene in the first episode. Nothing is seen and it only shows it for a second. A few jokes are made throughout the show but its so infrequent that you barely notice. Violence: ••• if you let your kid watch modern superhero movies this shouldn't be a problem. There's just as much violence as say, the movie Batman vs Superman. It's not terrible but definitely could be less. Overall show ••••• this has been in my top 3 animes since I first saw it. I highly recommend this to anyone over the age of 10. Definitely check it out.
