User Reviews

 
It started strong, but ended deflated and being less interesting.
15 December 2018 | by glenbordingSee all my reviews

The first seasons where really good, but then it started repeating it self, made the univers seem small, and kinda forgot distances and we suddenly where not traveling between systems in a galaxy, but between all galaxies, so it kinda ruined it self there on the logical scale.

Season 8 tries to be profound but is really disappointing for any anime fan, and it kinda sums up the writing in generel, it ends up being a pretty forgettable series in the end. It's not as bad as other series, the PC culture is kept relative in check, but it does shine trough and kinda ends with the punch line, as it shows it as the only ending with any kind of personal relationship. Kinda wasted as it could just have been a subplot.

Actors are fine borderline great at sometimes, and the animation is for a western cartoon good. It's really only in the writing it lacks imagination and power. If you can watch it for free and have lots of time, then it's a okay watch for most of the seasons. But don't expect anything like great stories that keeps consistent or pan out to something great, this is Cartoon Network level of writing we are talking about, not adult or anime.
