Appearances can be deceiving. Just take a look at Madoka Magica, a show that redefined the magical girl genre by being much more than what met the eye.
Much of anime is deceiving.. The teen/adult shows can often be basically porn, so yea it has that level of shock to it, cute appearance until you actually watch it. And much violence of course.
