A lot has been happening in the Voltron fandom since season 7 was released, as always via Netflix. So… I decided to give it some time before I wrote down my thoughts, and why not? Rewatch it a couple of times.
Originally, I was intending to post my review a month after season 7’s release, but in the end, there are so many things to discuss and theorize about, that I simply couldn’t wait anymore!
So… did I loved Season 7? Did I absolutely hate it? Well…, my thoughts on it are a little complicated, and here’s why:
It seems like I´m always late to reviewing Voltron Legendary Defenders, and it’s not as if I didn’t watch the season as soon as it was available; it’s just that so many things happened, in and outside of the fandom world. That I couldn’t wrap my head around it.
But…, after watching season 6 for the third time, and with season 7 less than 2 weeks away, I decided why not go ahead and write my thoughts on the season, even though it’s probably too late now.
Anyhow, if I had to describe season 6 in a phrase it would be the “season of payoffs”, or… maybe “the season of the feels!” -I’m still deciding on it-
‘Cause yeah, this season was basically the culmination of everything that has been set up since I’d dare say, season 1, and the feels! God the feels!
Awesome action, warfare, family, politics, feels! and freaking cliffhangers!
Those are the words that I´d use to describe Voltron: Legendary Defender -VLD- Season 5, which just premiered this Friday.
As you might remember, not too long ago I finally decided to give VLD a go, and I absolutely loved it!, so I was more than thrilled when I saw that Season 5 would premiere on March 2nd.
Now reasons for loving Voltron I´ve got plenty, just as I mentioned in my previous post, but… Did season 5 live up to the hype? Well…, the short answer is yes! It totally did! And here is why:
You know what’s the best thing about getting into a series late on? Particularly a Netflix one?
Not having to wait months for a new season!
So…, yeah basically a month ago, I finally decided to make use of my Netflix subscription and watch some of the Netflix show that I have been meaning to watch but for some reason, I haven’t, and… among them there was Voltron!
So… yeah, at the beginning I was a little unsure ’cause while I have been a huge fan of “kids series” like Phineas & Ferb, Star vs the Forces of Evil, Gravity Falls, Miraculous Lady Bug, etc., there have been some others that… have made me wonder what the heck are kids watching and learning these days -and man does that make me feel old-.
But in the end… watching the promo and learning that some of the creative team behind The Legend of Korra were also behind this series… well I had to give it a chance.
And I’m actually glad I did! I won’t say that Voltron Legendary Defenders –VLD– is the best-animated series out there, ’cause there are plenty of awesome series and it does start kind of slow, but what I will say without doubt is that the series does have a lot of attention to detail, it’s really well written, has awesome animation, heart and doesn’t dumb things down.
