I am talking about the new series on netflix. I started watching it as sort of a see how bad this actually is sort of thing. I have to say it was pretty impressive. If you can tolerate animated drama and adventure this one actually has a well defined story, character backgrounds that make sense, and handles a lot of adult issues along with teen issues. This is not your monster of the day old school cartoon. Some real work and worldbuilding went into the three seasons that are on netflix now. It is not that long considering the episodes are a half hour and there are only 26 of them. The second and third seasons are half of the first. She ra is powerful, but not the all powerful person that wins every battle. Glimmer and Bo have their own accomplishments and motivations as part of their team. They also have multiple princess leaders of different lands who come and go, and have their own motivations and stories. Catra is Adora/she ra's freind in the beginning and that relationship is used through the whole story for emotional drama and motivations really well. You don't just get that they knew each other and split ways and betrayed each other. You really see both sides of what happens to the two of them. They do a great job of showing why these two are at odds. It really ads to the climax and the decisions that are made. I was really impressed that they took the time to develop the sub characters to a point that you know them as well as the main character. In the final episodes of the third season when everything comes together this becomes important sort of like how the MCU built things up for endgame. There is a bit of choppiness in action scene animation where the artists could improve showing what happens in certain fights, but overall the animation is decent. It is nice that not everyone in the universe is skinny. Glimmer is not drawn as a thing waif, but she is attractive. There are multi racial characters and even an episode where two fathers are shown to be raising one of the important sub characters. I don't see a lot of girl power in this. It is just presented as a matriarchal system and they don't get into why. Men are there and participate, it just seems that for some reason princesses are leaders. The show just sort of puts women in the predominantly powerful roles as men would normally be and does not defend or promote any reason why. I was not expecting much from this, but in the end this is a really decent series that I am glad I watched because i would have missed it otherwise.
