- Much more violent than the original series. This is due to the fact that this show follows the manga storyline much more faithfully. As such, the action sequences are more violent and frenetic, the violence is more brutal and there are more intense moments.
- Mostly over-the-top anime martial arts fighting, including energy blasts and lasers.
- Violence can get pretty brutal, with some gory scenes. Some characters get blasted trough with energy beams, and you can see a big hole in their body. (DVD version)
- Characters have mostly blood on them (nose, mouth, cheek, etc) throughout when in a battle, if intense.
