Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Sexualizes Children

Another French monstrosity sexualizing children on Netflix. This show has aspects that should be reserved for intimate adult relationships only. I can't even add screenshots of the adult toy one character waves around while the subtitles show the words "delicious gobble slobber" on the screen, because this clear representation of the entire anatomy of a full grown male would be too vulgar for little eyes to see. This is unacceptable sexual content for a little kids' cartoon. Within the same minute they show two mostly unclothed full grown women, one with just basically a thin belt covering the very center inch of her chest leaving the vast majority of her unclothed and exposed while the thin cloth strap has stitching to represent aspects of the female anatomy. It is very difficult to give an accurate description of how inappropriate this show is without my post being too vulgar, but the truth needs to be told. If I could post screenshots I wouldn't have to say a word. You wouldn't let your kids watch this trash. The images speak for themselves loud and clear. This show is grooming children, and “will certainly whet the appetite of pedophiles and help fuel the child sex-trafficking trade.”

age 12+

The female characters are over-sexualized and incompetent. Painful to watch.

This one features offensive depictions of women: hyper-sexualized, wearing leather bikinis and universally incompetent, emotionally unstable, gossipy, backstabbing, and needing to be rescued. In addition to the toxic messages, it's not a quality show. The writing is lazy, the characters are flat, the plot is mindless and predictable, the dialogue is stiff and artificial. Most of the episodes are mindless filler. There are so many plot holes. The animation is also painfully cheesy. The most interesting part by far is the villain, and a particular fight scene with the villain, episode 17 or so. The rest of it isn't worth watching. My 7 year old and I loved Avatar the Last Airbender, Kipo and the Wonderbeasts, The Dragon Prince, She-Ra (new), Voltron (new), and were looking for another show in a similar vein-- but this is NOT worthy of that list. Those shows are FAR superior to Wakfu, both artistically and ethically.
