Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this dark sci-fi anime series is part of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim lineup. It's very violent, with people getting shot point blank with pistols and machine guns, as well as lots of blood splattering across walls, floors, and bystanders' faces. There are references to terrorist attacks, including bombings and flooding subway tunnels with poisonous gas. There's also some language (words like "bad ass") and brief references to drunk driving.
- Sexual Content

- Many scenes of people being mowed down by machine guns, as well as people shooting themselves and others at point blank range. Sounds of people crying out and being killed are heard in the background. Lots of images of blood splattering across walls, floors, and people's faces. Trucks, buildings, and other structures are blown up. Discussions of terrorist plots, including use of chemical warfare.
- Language includes words like "bad ass."
- Social Behavior
- The Japanese are conquered by a (fictitious) Western nation, which results in plenty of cultural tensions. Terrorism is often justified as a means of achieving freedom from the Britannian Empire, but some characters question the morality of these actions.
