At New York Comic Con last year, screenwriter Leo Chu stated that the film would be rated PG-13 for "intense action" with the director Junpei Mizusaki saying "PG-13, it's a little hard to show limbs flying… Maybe just imagine it in your head. There are some scenes that come a little close to that."
