Now, that we know that Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has earned a 'G' rating in Japan, don't expect any blood, gore, nudity, and extreme violence in the movie. This isn't surprising since the shonen franchise is not known for featuring mature content. The fight scenes in Dragon Ball franchise are not usually brutal, and it looks like this movie will keep it family-friendly.

Compare this to Demon Slayer: Mugen Train movie, which earned a PG12 rating in Japan for its more mature content. PG12 denotes the need for parental "advice and guidance" for those under age 12. It's likely that the anime movie will get a similar rating when it hits in theaters in North America and other regions this summer.
