Naughty Anime for Kids? Me thinks not!

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt,
That certainly doesn't sound like a kids show does it? Well it's not. But look at the art style it must be a cutesy kiddy anime? Nope! And that just goes to show you that you cannot judge an anime by it's level of cartoony quality animation. If this looks like Powerpuff Girls, Dexters Lab, or any of those other Cartoon Network shows that its been compared to, to you, then look again. But dont watch it in the presence of children under say the age of, hmmm, 14? 15? 18? I'm no good with those show-watching-age-range-acceptability-judging. But I can tell you it's not for those that do not mind hearing about sexually devious themed content. It may be cute and all, but it's about as raunchy as all get out..well okay maybe it's not that bad. But it does certainly rate up there with maybe a Terantino style film violence mixed with some Invader Zim nonsense, a slight touch of late night Showtime softcore, and, well, a tad bit of Powerpuff.

But this hasn't been the only cutesy moe type anime lately that's been ultra-violent and not as expected...See Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (or When They Cry as the American release is simlpy called)
But if you dont believe me than just ask youself, how can an anime that looks like this
Turn into this?
