Finally, an anime about family for family!

This is one of the most family-friendly "TV-14" shows I've ever seen. Yes there's a good bit bit of violence with gore but the focus on the family and the tone of the series make it something that can promote unity in the family. There's also no inappropriate "fan service" as of yet in the show. One scene in episode 9 does have suggestive content, but it's played for laughs and isn't particularly graphic or "sexy". In addition, there's a side character that can act inappropriately, and this is something to watch out for if it crosses a line in the future. But so far, it's one of the best anime I've ever seen. Inspirational, funny and something families can feel comfortable watching together. Hopefully it stays this way.

Violent and disappointing

This anime had high reviews and I thought it would be okay for my 9 year old yo watch. But it normalized killing such as the mother Yor, who is an assassin and often thinks quite dark thoughts which can harm young minds. My 9 year old loved it but I am convinced it was too dark for her. This show tries to mingle dark plot with comedy. There was also the instance when the spy proposed to the assassin during an explosion. The terrorist episodes were also very dark because the little telepathic girl almost died. Not very good story and not the heartwarming show I was hoping for

NOT appropriate for younger kids (adult content throughout)

While the show is good anime and has a fun storyline, it is not appropriate for younger kids. It has some language and adult-like conversations throughout. Two examples: a reference to prostitution and encouraging a woman to show her curves to get men. We turned it off half way through the 2nd episode. This is not for kids younger than 14.

Appropriate for ages 10+

There is some cursing in this anime but it’s not a lot. Mild blood and or gore.
