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.

GORE GORE AND MORE GORE... Not that i'm against that!

The people on this show are idiots! They were messing with the heavily armed Japanese and know they are messing with a country that can arrest them for basically anything they do... WOW! You're bight! Anyway the show is gore to the point i have sit with my mom so she can actually watch it... Yeah, it's intense

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
age 7+

Perfect for teens and over.

This is the greatest series I've ever seen. Why? Because it shows real passion to protect and defend whales, that no other group is willing to do. After 20 years of the monotorioum on commercial whaling, Japan still freely kills 1000 whales every year, and no posturing and petitions will ever stop whaling. If stink bombs need to be thrown so be it! In Africa, poachers are killed on site...the japanese are lucky in this regard. There is some blood when whales get killed, but it is nessessary to see it otherwise people wont realise how much pain these beautiful creatures go through.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
