There are two graphic sex scenes with some moaning and grunting.

A character is teleported completely naked. A man violates her offscreen, but is shortly stopped.

A major character is occasionally seen naked. The breasts are visible, and also in the foreground.

In the first episode the protagonist sees the girls in his class naked shortly.

In the episode 5 the protagonist tries to have sex with a character, he's about to, but stops, since she isn't ready (no skin shown).

The protagonist will occasionally have "losing his virginity" on his mind. There are a couple of references to rape.

In the first episode the main character dies by a metro hitting him. We see his head bloodily flying.

Fights with the aliens often involve blood and gore from both sides, and sometimes dismemberment or decapitation. There are a total of 33 human deaths (discounting those who die twice in the series).

A character's lower back melts, because an alien threw some kind of strong acid. Her insides (intestines and all) melt away shortly. Heads explode due to bombs being set inside the players heads.

Some players graphically shoot an alien boy's upper arms and legs off. Afterwards, they shoot its head, which explodes.

A big alien guy chops people half with his razor sharp claws, and goes on a rampage, because the culprits violently murdered his child.

An alien scream causes a villain's ear-drums and eyes to pop. Blood spurts out of the respective areas.

A protagonist has his upper arm cut off and is pummeled with some blood before he cuts the attacking villain's limbs off.

A man's arm is broken, he briefly grunts in pain. A man's tooth is pulled out offscreen.

Occasional uses of 'fuck' and 'shit' in the subtitles. The dub contains more frequent and varied profanity.

Occasional smoking, and a couple brief instances of drinking. No drug use.

Some instances of gory and/or rather sadistic violence.

The aliens' appearances can be grotesque.

Like Berserk, the series is not as odious as the original manga.

suggested rating R for strong bloody violence, some scenes of sexuality, language and brief nudity.
