It was through Twitter that a mother expressed concern about the growing popularity of this anime among her son’s classmates, Well, said anime is not especially suitable for the whole family.

Looks like some of my son’s classmates are watching Chainsaw Man (anime). I felt the same as when he was a demon hunter.

I want to keep my distance from households that allow their children to watch anime R16

This post had many responses from other moms who agreed. Some comments were these:

  • Chainsaw Man is out of place no matter which way you look at it. Why don’t you see that it’s never a good idea to show it? There must be a lot of things wrong with him in other aspects too, so I’d like to keep my distance… An American mother, a friend from my daughter’s ballet class, said she disowned her 7-year-old son when she took him to his birthday party because I was playing STRANGER THINGS😇.
  • I get it, I’m the mother of a six-year-old boy. I thought about it while watching Oni no Kiri no Kane. I can’t watch grotesque movies, so I don’t show them to him. But at the time of Blade of the Oni no Ruin, my son told me that he had seen Blade of the Oni no Ruin in kindergarten, and I was stunned and dumbfounded…
  • It’s true… you usually know that even if a child wants to watch something, you have to stop them, because showing R18 adult content to children, showing them violent expressions, is child abuse. So why are you showing it to him for some reason? I love it, but of course, I have to show it. I love it too, but of course I can’t teach it to a seven-year-old.

It is always controversial when products like Chainsaw Manwhich include graphic violence, sexual scenes, becomes popular among minors. Are you for or against these comments?
