Reviews: Mega Man Starforce
Anime Review. Possible Spoilers
I remember seeing this anime when it first aired on Cartoon Network. At the time, I wasn't really interested in it, so I didn't watch it. But after seeing a few videos of the game on Youtube, I decided to watch both seasons. And honestly, it's better than I expected. I prefer NT Warrior more, but this is okay. Season 1 was pretty good. There was plenty of action and it had some lighthearted moments to balance it out, especially with the FMians, who are quite the Quirky Miniboss Squad. The animation used for the EM waves was quite beautiful to look at. There are just two problems with the season:
- The large amount of filler episodes in the latter half of the season. There were so many that I actually skipped episodes 34-49 to get to episode 50, where the show really got interesting.
- Luna, Bud, and Zack take up too much screentime and are completely useless, only serving as bystanders to be rescued. They also come off as a tad annoying, Luna in particular.
These games are not as bad as people say they are. I've played all three and they are a heck of a lot of fun and has a really good story to it.
