The highly popular Netflix animated series created by Dreamworks Animation, Voltron: Legendary Defender is back for a 6th season this week.

This reintroduction of characters continues with the introduction of the Chaotix and their new role in this world. Charmy, Espio, and Vector are now working as detectives. This helps give them a unique purpose especially since they were Knuckles strike team in the original comic series. It’s good they are getting a bit of individual identity moving forward which will allow them a chance to aid in the story with their role as investigators. This usefulness is proven as they discover what became of Dr. Eggman.
With the news Godzilla license will be up for Legendary Pictures after 2020 after the 4th installment in the Monsterverse, Godzilla vs. Kong, there is a lot of revelations moving forward.
Black Widow will finally get a film after so long and there are sequels to both Spider-Man and Black Panther in the works.

The film leaves the brothers setting off on their own in a world without alchemy and with the hope of stopping a former opponent’s research from causing further damage. Sad to say, this turns out to become as bad for the pair as Spider-Man failing to stop the robber who killed Uncle Ben.
There is great dialogue between Jason and Lauren which is very captivating. Watching two red rangers from different teams talk about the difficulties of being a Power Ranger is engaging. These are the kind of moments fans always wished the series would offer to help the characters feel more human.
The art Jared Cullum creates for this issue is inspirational. The use of a water color art style is often hard to prepresent properly in comics without the execution being a distraction. Here, Collum’s work presents the world of Fraggle Rock almost like a fusion between the live-action and the animated series.
So, has everyone has a moment to breath after the bombshell revelation which has just been dropped on us? There are a lot which comes from this revelation so let’s go one step at a time.
Know, this is standard of what it takes for an episode of Steven Universe to receive a perfect score. To take expectations of what will happened and flip them upside down and leave the audience in stunned silence as they unpack everything which has just taken place. Thank you Steven Universe for continuing to be one of the best animated shows to ever exist.
What madness is this? The residents of Beach City actually working to prepare themselves for the next time there is a Gem attack? About time! Just took them, OVER 100 episodes to become proactive
This issue presents the first problem with the IDW series. With a new series, especially one based on a property with a lot of mythology behind it there is a need to find a proper balance with the story telling.
Now anyone who watches anime knows filler/side stories can either help you enjoy more time with the characters or just annoy the viewer because it’s not an episode which drives the plot. Pool Hopping falls somewhere in the middle of this rating.
The Tenchi Muyo franchise was the desputable king of the 90s Harem anime genre. With so much going for it, how did the franchise lose it’s “essential watching” status?
