Ironically my opinions have changed since that post 7 years ago. I rewatched it and it is ahem. Quite mediocre.
But that’s okay because I have new hot takes about cartoon shows. Like how Castlevania is a better anime than most actual anime and they could learn from how it paces its story.
And how High Gaurdian Spice is simply mediocre and forgettable and the only reason people say otherwise is because what they really want to say is the Tumblry political undertones and artstyle upsets them. Watch Owl House. It does what HGS is trying to do but much better. Having a budget past stale cheese and an old shoe helps there admittedly.
Or how the twist in Voltron wasn’t the worst thing ever, even if it definitely was Really. Fucking. Weird. to make that swerve so far in.
