Managed to do more plot, setup, and payoff in one episode than Volume 1 did in 16.
Animation’s a helluva lot better and more fluid. There’s actual people instead of black silhouettes for the non-main characters.
The foodfight was ungodly hilarious. Though Ruby’s…Neo super flight matrix move was a bit of an ass pull and I do hope it gets used more than just once for comedy.
Mercury and Emerald are interesting, calling a potential Heel-Face turn later in the series (and at this point, calling Roman betraying Cinder or declaring an Enemy Mine situation with the main cast won’t be surprising).
Not much else to do, but otherwise, better start than season 1.
