16 May 2013 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

I found "Boxing Daria" to be a particularly interesting episode, since it shows an important part of Daria's past, which somehow explains why she constantly acts in the way that she does in the series.

I have to say that, while I liked watching this series from the beginning, I had some problems with the main character. At first, I didn't like her, and I thought that she was just an embittered girl who acted in a cynical manner for no reason. Then, after I saw more episodes, I started to have more sympathy towards her and I found her behavior to be more understandable.

This episode, the last one before the movie "Is It College Yet?" (Which is the Grand Finale of the whole series) makes things clearer, showing that Daria is actually a much more vulnerable character than one would think at first sight, and that despite all her apparent cynicism, she has a much more complex human side.

"Boxing Daria" is a great of character development for the protagonist of this animated series, and serves as a perfect prelude for the definitive conclusion of the show in "Is It College Yet?". The Daria that we see in this episode is different than the one we see in "Esteemsters", and that change is for better, in my opinion.
