Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 3 Review

Story (SPOILERS)

Season 3 starts almost directly where season 2 left off, with Shiro mysteriously having disappeared, the paladins need to find a new pilot for the Black Lion, so Voltron can be formed again. After everyone tries and fails, Keith tries, and the lion responds to him. However, he doesn’t want to pilot it, because he believes that Shiro is still out there.

Presentation

Voltron: Legendary Defender is animated series, and the animation looks great. The movements look fluid and realistic, along with the lips being correctly synced to the voice actors’ speech. Not only that, the direction in scenes is great, with a good blend of panoramic shots, along with zooming and the like. Along with the direction of scenes, the music not only is great, but also sets the tone for the scene, and no piece sounds too similar to one another.

Final Thoughts

This was a great return to the series, and although seven episodes may seem small, Castlevania only had four episodes, and season 4 of Voltron is being released this October, the wait for more episodes isn’t going to be very long. This season wasn’t the longest, but it did what it needed to. It resolved many plot points, while introducing new characters and thoroughly developing all the others we already know. This was one of the better seasons, introducing a villain that, in my opinion, is much more threatening than Zarkon ever was.

8.5/10
