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.

when I saw that there was nothing on positive messages I was confused cause the whole show is about if you dream big and work hard you will be great

Very awesome!

This anime is really cool and great for 10+. My 13 and 16 year old love this show. There is no sexual content or talk except for one scene in 1 episode, when Naruto performs his sexy jutsu but mind you, he only does this once and eventually learns his lesson and becomes mature and never does this again. There are fight scenes as well, that's why I gave this a 10+ because it may scare younger kids, but if you do have a kid below 10+ who isn't scared of that stuff, I'd 100% let them watch it!
