Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Based on the Japanese manga by Yoshida Sunao and Kiyo Kyuujou, Trinity Blood is entertaining and fast-paced, with remarkably lifelike characters and sharp, often-funny dialogue. But each episode also has plenty of tense, scary scenes, which might turn off sensitive viewers. The vampires employ sabers tucked beneath their cloaks to stab and fend off their enemies, resulting in very gory scenes featuring blood, guts, and even disembowelment.

The show's complex relationship with and treatment of religion also marks it as a show for mature audiences. Parents should definitely pre-screen before letting anyone besides older teens tune in -- this show is part of the late-night Adult Swim line-up for a reason.
