A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Typical good vs. evil comics stuff. Characters have complex motives, and their actions aren't always straighforward.
Violence & Scariness
Lots of dramatic sword fighting, shooting, and bloody massacres. People die horrible, bloody deaths, including being shot through the head. Gross little demon-worms attack people and turn them into monsters.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this anime series can be extremely violent. The police fight scary demons by decapitating them with gigantic swords, which they wield in slow-motion displays that show off the resulting blood splatters. Gross, worm-like monsters attack humans and turn them into dangerous demons. Female characters sometimes wear revealing outfits; one policewoman seems to be topless aside from a jacket that barely covers her breasts. There are also some adult relationship dynamics, including jealousy and arguing.
Is It Any Good?
With that main plot thread holding the series together, additional elements -- such as police politics, mystical tattoos, and horrible massacres -- combine to make it a captivating, if bloody, series. Expect plenty of dramatic decapitations and flesh-eating demons, as well as some skimpy outfits.
Did we miss something on diversity?
