Voltron legendary defender is the show we need and deserve
24 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

im a new comer to the voltron franchise, i have not watched any iteration of the series, so here is a review from fresh guy who knows nothing about Voltron: After all the terrible cartoons that we have been getting recently, under the category of cheap animation, forgettable story lines and unimaginative unfunny comedy, Voltron finally came in and saved our universe. the animation is stunning, beautiful, and filled with detail, something to expect from the folks who did both avatar the last airbender and the legend of Korra, we have not seen anything like this since the death of the legend of korra, young justice and generator rex, the battle sequences are phenomenal, and the 3d rendered in 2d Voltron and the giant baddies (who i thought would be the bad part about the animation) turned out perfect, in fact Voltron in this series is one of the best looking robots i have seen in my life, even the transformation sequence is great. the writing is also really good, and the characters are quit distinct with real motive, they have a history that is yet to be explored ( i have only watched the first 5 episodes so far) . the comedy is funny occasionally and the show is generally a lot of fun. Voltron legendary defender is the savior of western television, im tired of all the cheap bad comedies that we have been getting recently, the action cartoons are dying but man Voltron saved my day, i hope it is successful and i really want to see more of this.
