The guardians are back & better than ever (mostly)
I love crystal! A great fantasy story with some heart & excitement. By season 3 the show really found its way. I'll admit the animation isn't the best in the first season, but most tv shows have weak first seasons compared to the later, by season 3 the animation is gorgeous, the girls are powerful, strong & the story is very well told, although a bit rushed, a few more episodes per season to flush out the stories would have helped a lot. The writers really make an effort to stick to the original stories & not "Americanize" the more controversial story lines like the previous run, Neptune & Uranus are amazing together but needed a bit more infusion of personality. I was very happy to see the other guardians given a bit more personality & fantastic new powers.
The guardians powers in season 3 are phenomenal & the animated scenes are the best ever shown, Jupiter Coconut Cyclone is probably the most bad ass power of all the inner guardians! I was also really glad to see (my personal favorite guardian) Venus given more of a leadership role in the group, her time as a guardian before any of the other girls shows through in her characters strength. However I absolutely hate how they waste her Rolling Heart Vibration power, it's only shown 1 time in the entire series & its wasted by being completely ineffective on the enemy, If a character gets a special 1 time new power shouldn't it do some damage??
I hope they continue with the next series because given how each season was better than the last the story of Pegasus & the dead moon circus has the potential to be something amazing, and as a child of the 90's who was robbed of the last season & all its transgendered superhero glory I'd really be excited to see that season redone.
Definitely recommend watching, season 3 in particular.
