Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this show lacks meaningful substance and has little educational value, but aside from that, it's harmless entertainment. Any violence is confined to the LilyMu scenes (the superhero show-within-a-show portion of each episode), and characters are not harmed.

Sexual Content

In keeping with anime style, one of the female characters wears some skimpy outfits.

Violence

Futuristic (probably laser-powered) weapons are fired during the show-within-a-show scenes. No one is struck or injured.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Role models aren't exactly strong; the characters are two-dimensional, and, for the most part, they're either really high-strung, selfish, or dumb. One exception is the sweet and generous Mitsuki, who has a crush on Mikey and does everything she can to make him feel welcome in his strange surroundings. There is one brief mention of "working as a team," though the show doesn't make a huge effort to drive that point home.

Consumerism
