My favorite part of the D&D episode was Glimmer giving Catra the “female anime villain” laugh

Adora's increasingly exasperated complaints about how people envisioned Catra was pretty good.

Yet where is that woman now? Tell me, in what heave does she reside? None of them. Because no God bothered to listen or care. If that is what you think it means to be a God, then you and all your teachings are welcome to do as that poor women did. And vanish from these realms forever.
This show is gay af.

I love it!

Just watched the first two seasons over the last few days.

It also got me to dig out the old 2002 He-Man series which is really good.

TV was not a good medium for continuing storylines, because it was easy to miss one because you were hurried off to school. I'm the internet age, you can just watch it at leisure.

I binged this entire show after seeing someone react to some of the backlash this show got a year ago and because I thought the designs were spot on.

I wasn't expecting much, it was almost a watch in protest to support the show. Ended up loving it (especially the D&D episode, Bow's dads, the Star Wars references, the gay energy and the references to the old show in the D&D episode; each of the separate imaginations were a reference to some other animations and one of them stood out as a reference to the original: stiff movement and how they turn their heads being the tip-off.)

I look forward to more, for sure. And gently caress bigots.

I read Noelle Stevenson's webcomic back in the day, then I heard she had a show coming out, googled it, found out about people getting mad over it and I too decided to watch it. Then recommend it to a bunch of my friends.

Just finished S2! So good! I loved Bow’s very Dream Daddy-esque dads, although I couldn’t help but notice George looked a fair bit like Sea Hawk, which says strange things about Bow’s boyish crush on the pirate.

George is meant to look like Filmation Bow, I'm pretty sure. (Albeit with an appropriate racelift)

Catra is a paramilitary lieutenant who enthusiastically works for a pseudo-corporate entity looking to subjugate and extort an otherwise peaceful society to destructive ends. I'd call that a criminal.

I gravitated towards the Greens, eventually even joining the party itself.

The Linke is a party I grudgingly accept exists, but I've learned enough about DDR-history I can't bring myself to trust a party that was once the SED, a party leading the corrupt state apparatus ...

I'm not sure it was plagiarized from as much as 'these japanese studios make awesome poo poo just hire them to do character/mechanical designs + the intro and get the usual terrible folks to do the episodes'

80s animation means they were inspired by, what, AstroBoy, Tetsujin 28 and Speed Racer? Maybe Mobile Suit Gundam or Ulysses 31???

He's a radical horse abolitionist, paying no heed to the laws of bipeds. If there wasn't a war to be fought against the Horde, he'd be waging a guerrilla war against those who have enslaved his kind.

I liked how a lot of the scenes were set up with parallels between the Rebellion characters and the Horde characters going through the same issue, like the contrast between Bow's parents treat his lying, and then a scene with how Hordak treats Catra lying.

If Bow's parents had liked his friends better than him that could've gone WAY worse.
