I found this to be a smartly written reboot of the 80s cartoon. Kind of feels like the recent Voltron reboot except the show has a slightly more comic and lighthearted feel. It also does a better job of filler episodes, although there a couple episodes that are little basic, but hey it's a kids show. It's gonna happen.
The main cast is good. The big trio of Adora, Bo, and Glimmer is very strong from the start, though it is Bo who usually steals the show as a likable goober. I was surprised how fun and relatable the villains are. Adora's friend turned rival. Catra has her own group and they are surprisingly humorous. Catra and Adora's shared traumatic past is probably the most dramatic part of the show and really pays off. It's also refreshing to see the main/serious villain of the show Hordak played as reasonable and smart rather than a traditional short-tempered mustache-twirler. Only weak spot is that this show is overpopulated with supporting character princesses and most of them aren't as interesting as the main characters.
Not the biggest fan of the animation. No, I'm not one of those people complaining about the fact that they redesigned the character, I'm just not the biggest fan of this particular over-simplified art style. The character's chins are too long and there is something about the arms and legs that's off but I can't put into words why. Though I do give the show props for for featuring more various and realistic body types rather than promoting the kind of unhealthy view that heroines have to be slim. The backgrounds are flat in terms of animation style and color scheme, but they do put a lot of detail into them.
