"Recent Cartoons: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power"
 
   With the final season having dropped on Netflix a few weeks ago, and given the general state of everything in the world at large, I feel like this is the appropriate time to drop a serious and heartfelt recommendation for that princess show. I can say with certainty that it's the the single most Eyrie cartoon I've watched in recent years.

I'm not going to give out any spoilers, but: the new She-Ra is a cool and good magical girl show that is positive and hopeful without being schmaltzy or condescending. It's not afraid to let the villains' plans work, but it's also okay with the heroes winning in the end. It's a show that has an excellent hook for how the series starts, as well as a Full Supporting Cast of superlative, well-rounded, complex characters. Entrapta is one of the best-portrayed neurodivergent characters I've seen in any show. Scorpia is a precious angel. Catra is a truly excellent villain and series 5 gives her the best payoff ever. And then there's Adora.

Gryphon. Gryph. Greeffeeeern. Griffley Gryphington Gryffleworth-On-Sea. Adora is so completely and entirely Your Shit that I'm genuinely amazed she's not kicking around in UF already. She is your next Korra, as far as characters go. I mean that in the sense of "Wow, this character must come and hang out in my elaborate fanfiction universe", because here's the thing: Adora gets to kick the football. Adora gets to win. She is brave and heroic and kind and good and those aren't things that are shown as weaknesses but the core of her strength. She is a hero, and she can be heroic, and she can succeed.

So yeah. I fully and completely expect y'all to have watched this already - and probably bugged Gryph about it in private, those who are able - but I felt like this needed saying. The new She-Ra show is fucking awesome and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

FiMFiction.net: we might accept blatant porn involving the cast of My Little Pony but as God is my witness we have standards.

also it is the most women-loving-women show on planet earth and thus is the best show ever i will not be taking questions at this time.
