Good children's show, great premise, bad dialogue
First of all this is a great show for children. The visuals, sets animations, and cinematography overall are just stunning. The idea is a good one: the Earth has shattered and the remnants of civilization fight it out for resources amongst huge floating chunks of Earth. A young girl, Mila, possesses magical powers, and armed with this ability she and her brother fight with the resistance against the Empire.
Unfortunately the writing is pretty bad. Not much else to say. The dialogue is cheesy, cliché, and the plots aren't that great although there are some great action sequences.
This is disappointing because the production values are so good. I wonder if they spent so much producing the show, that they had to skimp on decent writers and voice actors.
This won't really put off any young audiences, for whom this show was intended, but it's still a bit of a shame.
