Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this show is an enormously popular sequel to the anime series Dragon Ball and has a huge following across the globe. Consistent strong themes include good triumphing over evil, putting family first, and working as a team. Still, there's no shortage of violent scenes; characters get hurt, unconventional weapons are used, and the dialogue includes language about killing, decimating, and destroying. While the show is massively appealing to anime fans, parents need to be aware that the strong violent visuals may frighten some kids.

- Girl characters show cleavage and wear short skirts. Flirty behavior with boys.
- Characters are tied up and threatened. Others fall in pain. Lots of energy blasts knock others over.
- No swearing, but lots of threatening language. "You are going to die." "Don't die before I have the pleasure of killing you."
- Social Behavior
