Why It Rocks[edit | edit source]
- Extremely beautiful, fluid animation and backgrounds provided by Chromosphere Studio, who also animated some Steven Universe Dove shorts.
- Interesting characters, including Carmen herself, who is more heroic this time around and is similar to Robin Hood.
- The villains are also worth noting, as they all have a unique relationship to Carmen, especially Shadow-san for reasons we won't mentions due to spoilers (watch for yourself!)
- Catchy theme song.
- Manages to be a rare educational show for older children, cleanly weaving educational facts about the world into every episode.
- Ensemble cast of voice actors.
- Stays relatively faithful to the original shows and video games.
- If you complete the To Steal or Not to Steal interactive special, you get rewarded with the entire cast singing an acapella song about Carmen.
Bad Qualities[edit | edit source]
- Takes some liberties with the source material.
