Queen of Queens... in Space!
We got a lot of Cleopatra representations through the years but none like this one.
Cleo traveled a lot to let us see how her very far future is, it mixes perfectly the old ancient Egipt mythology and "magic" with sci-fi elements. Everything is familiar to our look but also makes them look very different. The design of characters is gorgeous, unique in each one but they kept the egiptian look on most of the humans and very vraiated on the aliens. The top is the music, they're mixes of egiptian music with mother beats and they fit well with the action sequences. It also uses a very smooth humor based on visual gags and sometimes in puns depending on situation.
But is not perfect, the rythm sometimes brokes making it feeel slower that it should be; the episodes are 21 minutes long but they feel a bit longer than they should be and also animation sometimes do takes steps back and looks clunky, also the only voice i don't actually like it's Brian's... it sounds way too squicky that it should.
It is not the perfect space odyssey, but it's very lovely to see that this kind of work are done, recommended watch.
