Great Style, But Not the Substance of the Classics
24 May 2019 | by ajjpacificaSee all my reviews

I should start by saying I love this show. The art style, music, and worldbuilding are all so good they HAVE to be compared with shows like Cowboy Bebop, especially given the visual similarities and emotional use of music. That said, for all Megalo Box's style, it doesn't have the substance of a show like Bebop.

The main issues I think are character presentation and emotional pacing. My best examples are the many many times Joe is always depicted as being right, even when his decisions have real, negative consequences for other people; the show needs to at least make him morally grey and learn from his mistakes as he is arguably the main character with the least personality growth throughout; and secondly the amount of buildup the show gives only to cut short its emotional payoffs in the two biggest fights of the show by never dwelling on is happening or what just happened.

All that said, the show is still amazing and hits basically every other beat so anyone reading this don't be discouraged.
