Review and rating to parents
This is a wonderful Series. It's full of brilliant colors, a great story, very kawaii character drawings, and lots of action and emotion. I watched this with my children and they loved it. There is one scene *maybe* that has a partial back shot of Maron in the shower. Other than that depending on who you buy it from (who subtitles it) is depending on whether there is any profanity in it.
The series has both the negative and positive sides as with most things, but is a very positive series. Dealing with one's true self, feelings, hopes, ect.. I enjoyed it thoroughly with my children and feel that a series like this should be welcomed with open arms.
Be advised that depending on your religion this series could be a problem. I do not find I have a problem with it, but because it is based in part on religion there could be problems on the home front. Frankly speaking, I think that to accept the world and all it's people is to accept that we are all one large family. Religion should not rule our lives but it should not be ostracized either.
Please note that it is up to the parent to view and critique the series before their children get their hands on it.. Good luck to you all and I hope if and when you watch this series you will love it as much as I do.
