Final Verdict: Young Teen

Acacia’s Comment: I actually had to add a new tag to the objectionable content section for this series. We had completely forgotten about the siblings that go after their siblings! Luckily in this series, the sibling that instigates it is shot down every single time and he never gets longer than a few seconds to be creepy before he’s shut up.

Objectionable Content: Graphic Violence [Mild], Toilet Humor [Mild]

Final Verdict: Young Teen

Acacia’s Comment: The only reason I placed the graphic violence tag on here is because in the first or second episode, a chicken gets beheaded. Remember, this is an anime about farming, stuff like that is normal. Also, the toilet humor tag is there due to the main character having a breakdown due to finding out where a chicken’s egg comes out. Nothing serious, it only lasts for one episode.
