Voltron: Legendary Defender /vld/

Nicholas Lopez
Nicholas Lopez

Do you think Matt is going to become part of the main cast after Pidge finds him? Will he(and maybe his rebel group) move onto the castle ship, or will they continue operating more in the background?

And what do you think the writers are going to do about Dad Holt? Has he died offscreen, or will Matt and Pidge do a joint rescue mission, or what?

First for Kuron!

Isaiah Fisher
Isaiah Fisher

Matt will be a background character and Dad Holt is dead

Isaiah Bailey
Isaiah Bailey

I hope Matt becomes a regular on the ship like Coran and the mice and they don't ship him off to somewhere else but I can see them doing it.

Matthew Green
Matthew Green

I think Sam's got the #1 chance of being killed off and #2 for a heroic sacrifice (behind Kolivan), but I'm not convinced they have the balls to do it.

Caleb Powell
Caleb Powell

Character and personality wise, was Keith at his best in the Blade of Mamora episode?

Dylan Edwards
Dylan Edwards

He's such a special boy.

Angel Brooks
Angel Brooks

I mostly want Matt to be part of the main roster-- the only real point against it that I can see is, with Shiro being the mentor figure, the narrative really wants him to be less available to the rest of the main characters. Assuming they find the real Shiro soon-ish I could see wanting to ship him off with Matt to do rebel things on the ground, because it makes the dynamic of the remaining characters more interesting when they don't have that rock to depend on.

Jonathan Robinson
Jonathan Robinson

I think that was the episode he was most tolerable in.

Austin Stewart
Austin Stewart

You know that would end in more muh Shiroing and we can't handle another season of that.

Kevin Stewart
Kevin Stewart

I believe they confirmed in an interview that Dad Holt isn't dead. If they hadn't said that, I'd agree with you 100%. I'm imagining a scene between Pidge and Matt where Pidge gets really excited that they'll be able to work together to find Sam faster, and Matt has to break the news to her.

His single best moment for me was the line that went something like "Look, I'm glad we're all making fun of Lance." I find him so boring so much of the time (including blade of marmora ep), he's only been likable when he's been able to have a sense of humor. Some of his funnily clueless moments have been good too.

Jacob Johnson
Jacob Johnson

I could see them tying it into Keith's character arc. If he finally accepts that he has to learn to get by without his mentor around, that'd be a good moment for him.

Owen Sullivan
Owen Sullivan

I like that Keith doesn't bother to return fire on Lance often, but when he does Lance gets seriously triggered.

I really enjoyed him in the BoM ep though, and I hope they're taking the direction of having him focus his stubborn nature more productively instead of trying to make him overcome it all together.

Jordan Thomas
Jordan Thomas

I've seen a lot of complaints about the show being tied to the quips and silly moments but I honestly don't think they're the problem. Avatar had the same kind and amount of jokes as Voltron does, only with maybe a little less fat jokes.

I think the real problem is that the show lacks the same emotional depth and pacing that Avatar had with the characters not being as developed, making the quips stand out.

Ryder Carter
Ryder Carter

I hope we get a "Leave them and join my team" thing from Lotor in October. It's just too juicy for him to not take advantage of, and if Acxa hasn't told him, she will soon.

Yes I'm aware I asked this in the last thread but I had to go run some errands and when I came back the thread was archived.

Blake Taylor
Blake Taylor

I love Keith all the time except in S3E3 but I know it was necessary for him to git gud.

Blake Ramirez
Blake Ramirez

I think season 3 did a way better job on the comedy front than the previous seasons. I agree though that they're not developing the characters enough, and especially not developing their interpersonal relationships enough. Season 3 gave us some good Lance & Allura moments, but not much else.

It's possible that they're just willing/able to take it slow since they know off the bat exactly how many episodes they're gonna have. Still, I wish they'd spend more time on the characters outside of missions.

Mason Kelly
Mason Kelly

I hope so too. Something also tells me (my tinfoil hat) that Keith and Lotor are the same sort of halfbreeds.

Kevin Nguyen
Kevin Nguyen

Can someone link me to the last thread actually? I'm dumb and don't know how to find it.

Kayden Gutierrez
Kayden Gutierrez

Zarkon had an affair with McCree and got him pregnant?

Ryan Ward
Ryan Ward

i could buy this, though I'm biased in that I love all the goofy moments where they are arguing over time-slices and shit. it's also pretty interesting that the JP fandom seems to find the character relationships to be really well done, i wonder what the difference there is?

Colton Fisher
Colton Fisher

I really think the recruitment deal is going to happen at some point from Lotor. The question is whether it will be a 10 second moment in the final episode where he asks and Keith responds with an "I'll never join you", or the plot of an episode, or anything inbetween.

Ethan Walker
Ethan Walker

Wouldn't you?

Xavier Morgan
Xavier Morgan

Pretty sure the rebels with him are connected to Romelle somehow. I can't remember if we've seen the faces of his rescuers yet, but a high tech mask to hide their features makes sense to me if they're trying to keep survival of alteans a secret.

Alexander Reed
Alexander Reed

I absolutely adored the "seconds vs ticks" scene, maybe my favorite moment in the show so far. I also really like how the humans have started using Altean units of time measurement more and more.

Nicholas Baker
Nicholas Baker

Or perhaps the Alteans "became" Polluxians in order to deter suspicion? Maybe instead of being at war with one another as it was in DotU and Golion, they are the runaway survivors.

Elijah Carter
Elijah Carter

Well the Japanese barely talk to each other. So there's that.

Kayden Garcia
Kayden Garcia

Look at how static and awkward interpersonal relationships in anime are, even in romance ones. The nips are great at plot but look at how stunted their character interactions are from a western viewpoint, of course they think the interactions in this show are great.

Gabriel Jones
Gabriel Jones

Is Romelle confirmed to show up in later seasons, or is it just speculation? What about Nanny, any chance of her?

Brandon Miller
Brandon Miller

this is absolutely going to happen but the real question is how. either with Keith becoming more isolated from the team and Lotor targeting him because of this (and probably having a hand in it), or Keith allying with him willingly for his own reasons, either genuine or as a ruse. it's pretty open so far, considering they haven't even met face to face yet

Jaxon Rivera
Jaxon Rivera

Matt is probably going to be part of the B-group with Kuron and Romelle, and other rebels. Maybe Slav too if he stops being a bitch in this reality.

Joseph Garcia
Joseph Garcia

It's all speculation at this point. We know from the fact that Lauren is a Romelle fan that she will without any doubt be in VLD. Also there was that Altean girl from the studio leaks.

Nanny is very hard to say. People definitely remember her but not very fondly. She always got in the way, but I am willing to forgive it if they make her a THICC MILF.

Lincoln Sanchez
Lincoln Sanchez

It would be interesting to see Keith pretend to join him with Shiro taking over black for a bit during the ruse. It may even be a chance to see Galra form Keith.

Joshua Sanchez
Joshua Sanchez

Lance having the hang of Altean time while still being shit at earth counting is a good ass running joke

Luis Harris
Luis Harris

One thing I hate in anime is confessions. Sure at that age it can be nerve wracking to do so. But why confess to someone you've never spoken to? Half the time I see that shit it's like that or they haven't even tried to see if they could be friends. Really irks me in their high school/young stuff. Generally series on older protago nists and such seem to avoid this though.

Henry Rogers
Henry Rogers

Matt is gonna become the blue lion because Lance is gonna be gone for the next three years.
After breaking out of Galran captivity he will stat doing his own thing and the team will stat forgetting him.
Matt will become Hunk's new best friend and Pidge will be not even a hundredth as persistent on her search for Lance. She will mostly just play games with Matt.

Dylan Lopez
Dylan Lopez

It's because you don't understand how emotionally stunted the nips are.

Asher Wood
Asher Wood

He's such a bimbo.

Thomas Foster
Thomas Foster

From what I understand it's a cultural thing, like boys and girls in school interact/form friendships with each other a lot less over there than in the West. Definitely feels super weird to me, but I can't really fault them for including something that really does happen.

Brody Myers
Brody Myers

with the reveal of Zarkon's wife being Haggar, this is almost certainly Romelle

Hunter Russell
Hunter Russell

A cute. Why does she only have the mark on one cheek?

Wyatt Reyes
Wyatt Reyes

relationships in Voltron are awkward, stilted, forced, or underwritten
Japanese basically personify all this

It's not surprising and it doesn't reflect well on this show.

Jaxon Robinson
Jaxon Robinson

Shiro gets the cutest girl

Joshua Jenkins
Joshua Jenkins

When is nanny going to show up to beat the shit out of Lance

Nathaniel White
Nathaniel White

Maybe she's a half breed?

Gavin Martin
Gavin Martin

She's going to be big and purple.

Asher Nguyen
Asher Nguyen

irl Japanese people are underwritten

It's funny because it's true.

Hudson Parker
Hudson Parker

Maybe the single marked Alteans were being discriminated by the doubles and left and made their own uhh race and thus Pollux?

REMEMBER. POLLUX IS A TWIN.

Aiden Perez
Aiden Perez

When he hits on Romelle.

Asher Thompson
Asher Thompson

For some reason my gut is telling me that the reason they're making a point to focus on Acxa's loyalty to Lotor means that she's eventually going to defect. They doth protest too much, or something.

Ryan Butler
Ryan Butler

And the reason why Keith is on Earth.

Levi Evans
Levi Evans

Oh shit maybe though

Ian Powell
Ian Powell

i figured most nipfans of VLD would be westaboos in the first place, and be more acquainted with western style character writing

Noah Myers
Noah Myers

I like to think Keith is an experiment and Blade Nanny stole Keith and somehow landed on Earth and plowed McCree with her purple thiccness.

Angel Adams
Angel Adams

Thoughts?

Blake Green
Blake Green

Unfortunately Keith is way to hot headed for that kind of an infiltration mission.

Aiden Williams
Aiden Williams

Hopefully they won't change this and give her a dorito chin like the majority of the cast. I wonder what color her skin will be?

Ian Johnson
Ian Johnson

I don't think Lance is taller than Keith.

Carter Fisher

Brayden Torres

Lance will fucking die - but how is the question?
One thing is sure, he will be forgotten fast.

Caleb King

Kevin Morris

Will we get more alternate reality shenanigans?

Jace Sanders
Jace Sanders

right now he is, I could see his arc leading into it though. he has shown the capacity for craftiness, like in the BoM trial and recently in the comet episode

Logan Jones
Logan Jones

When he fails to kill a freedom bird with his own hands. BoM-Nanny will not tolerate that weak shit.

And it's incest!

Camden Davis

And when I say Coran brown, I mean his light shade of brown. Just to make people mad.

Levi Price

Evan Lewis

When Lance marries Sven.

John Lopez
John Lopez

Keith becoming more isolated from the team and Lotor targeting him because of this (and probably having a hand in it)

So I know I'm not the only one who believes that Keith can turn purple. He's the only Galra hybrid we've seen so far without any visible Galra traits. Even Ezor has purple patches and pointy ears.

I present to you, pic related. AKA: The shot of Keith in the scene where all of the Paladins are unconscious following Haggar's attack on Voltron with her purple lightning. Keith was the only one shown at an angle where we can't see any of his skin.

I'm saying that I want Keith to turn purple at some point, either at an extremely inopportune moment (the anti-Galra Empire rally) or when they need someone to infiltrate something, or both.

Oliver Garcia
Oliver Garcia

I'd have to look again. I think they're all going to get a growth spurt except Shiro.

Hunter Roberts
Hunter Roberts

We shall.

Luke Johnson
Luke Johnson

Keith is going to be a shortass for life. The rest will get growth spurts though.

Angel Fisher

I want him to either turn purple or pop some big batcat ears at an inopportune moment.

Asher Peterson

I would sell my kidney for an episode where they just meet different AU counterparts: DotU team, r63, live action , etc.

Alexander Johnson
Alexander Johnson

Why is Kuron the most beautiful character in Voltron?

Samuel Parker
Samuel Parker

Right now I am imagining that scene like when Jafar zapped Aladdin back into his poverty clothes with his magic.

It'll be Lotor to do it except instead of magic, it'll be a magic gun or something.

Benjamin Watson

I don't understand people who say they want Keith, Lance, Allura or any character to die. If they did die it would played for drama and they would still show up in flashbacks or as a spiritual presence regularly and it would make no difference.

Joshua Lee

I just see "I want X character to die" posted a lot and I realize a lot of it is shitposting but for those that are serious I think their logic is silly.

Brayden Robinson
Brayden Robinson

Sven belongs to Romelle. Romelle will come from the Altean Supremacy reality.

Luke Morgan
Luke Morgan

The question is how. The druids might not be galra or altean. Given the way they move, their body proportions, and purple light shining out of them when they get injured they might be straight up quintessence corruption. Some book called it a burn when Keith got hurt and that further complicates it. We know his mom has galran heritage due to the blade. Also there was a BoM member with a tail, implying he was a half breed.

So lets say for the sake of argument Keith is 1/4 galran. He's probably not 1/4 altean. He should still have some signs of his heritage so how would his mom hide those features?

Asher Harris

Gaaaay

Isaiah Clark

McCree was most likely one of those weirdos that live out in the wilderness searching for alien activity. We already know that it was Keith's mother who knows of the knife.

Also shacks are not that hard to make? It's fucking rickity as hell.

If his family guarded it for generations, how the hell is Keith a half-Galra then?

Angel Edwards

Well somehow Zarkon just found Red and was shipping it back. So maybe the BoM knew this and were also looking for them, if only to move them somewhere else. I'm guessing it was treated as a wild goose chase and Keith's mom actually got lucky and found Blue, but then got stranded. As far as why she hasn't reported back to the BoM, my guess is that she went looking for Romelle's faction for some reason.

Oh look, someone only reads what they want to see. Yes, Lance gets picked on. And I also said they haven't crossed the line and I don't expect them too. Pidge makes fun of Hunk for throwing up, Hunk actually snarls back at Lance now and then. That's fine.

He's the one who opened the door to them. He invited them to approach him as the character (changing his name to Space Dad, making space-dad jokes, talking about "his" stuff when he's referring to shiro, etc), giving opinions about shipping? Normally this stuff would happen between fans, like a tennis match, back and forth. No one has more authority or power, so when one party lashes out, it stays in the realm of fandom.

Now enters this dumbfuck attention whore, bringing fandom discussion onto a level it should never be. Validating some opinions as though he has the authority (he doesn't, he has 0 creative input) is going to stoke the flames way, way, higher. Even if he's just being "nice." It's a stupid decision to enter the monkey cage at the zoo and then complain that you got covered in shit.

As much as I love Halloween episodes it doesn't really fit with the show to have one. Same with a Christmas episode. Holiday episodes just really don't work for certain shows and this is one of them.

Yeah, some people are pointing to the unusually high IP counts the last few threads have been getting, but I think that's just because the new season is still fairly recent. I sincerely doubt that anyone who is strictly just a tumblr user is still hanging around.

Isaiah Richardson
Isaiah Richardson

I could see Keith and Acxa getting some romance hints and Allura getting jealous/protective, giving Kallura a bit of a kickstart.

Maybe Acxa forms a bit of a friendship with Keith and convinces him that she wants to defect, and needs Voltron's help to foil Lotor's latest plot. Allura wouldn't trust her, and that mistrust could be interpreted as jealousy, but she gets outvoted and then things go to shit when it turns out it was actually all a trap.

Considering the number of comfy threads we manage to have without people throwing "you're just an [x character]-fag!" accusations at people constantly, I'm convinced it's only one or two anons.

Why do that when you can whine about other anons instead?

Anyway, do you think Zarkon has all of his memories, or are they scrambled like Haggar's were?

Kayden Edwards
Kayden Edwards

Last thread had 70 and still went to shit. It's less the number and more the presence of certain pugilistic anons that makes these threads bad.

I get the feeling he's going to be an unpredictable type of leader. Shiro's very standard, very supportive, but nurturing and not a good war commander type. Whereas Keith is determined and goal-focused, to a fault. He just needs to temper that determination with wisdom.

Lucas Wood
Lucas Wood

I think Keith definitely has the potential to get under Lotor's skin and has his maverick way of thinking will be the push they need.

Keith just needs to clear his head and learn from his mistakes. I think we'll see a bigger improvement in season 4.

Because I love Voltron too fucking much.

I think Zarkon's are scrambled and may have some memories, but that all depends on when Lotor was born.

Agreed. Keith as the leader really shakes things up and he makes a good opponent to Lotor. Shiro preferred to play things safe and was more predictable. Which was fine when they were fighting Zarkon, but not so much Lotor.

implying being able to appreciate even the most subtle feminine qualities isn't even more heterosexual than otherwise

I never thought about it that way. Yeah for a guy like Lotor you need someone who thinks traditionally, but Lotor knows how to counterattack that manner of thinking and is ineffective.

Keith for sure will be the one to rile Lotor up with his loose-cannon ways of leading.

Camden Powell
Camden Powell

I've heard good things about Patlabor, but the dub is pretty rough and I don't have the attention span for subs. It's more down to earth than things like Gundam, the mechs seem like they're treated more like useful tools/vehicles than magical fighting robots.

Yeah, they're entitled to their opinion if they don't like Shiro to begin with but honestly as an admitted Shirofag I liked the episode for reasons that have little to do with Shiro as a character and all do to with the excellent pacing (a rarity on this show) and strong narrative technique and reliance on showing rather than telling.

I thought it was just ok. But I've never been a fan of the "lone wanderer has encounters that will never be important again in the future" style of storytelling, and I'm also not a big Shiro fan. So it was kind of custom made to hit all the notes that I don't personally care for.

I do really appreciate all the lore speculation it's given us, though. And those two blue alien dudes Shiro/Kuron met were fun.

Holy shit this. I rewatched the series and I never realized how much Lance fucking screams.

It's good that he's becoming the lancer now and Allura makes a better chick.

I already said I didn't like Wings. Can't even explain why - I just hated all characters except Relena and Duo, and barely could care for the story.

Benjamin Morris
Benjamin Morris

I found it to be a rare display of the show slowing down on its pacing and actually having pathos though. Normally characters get no time to actually dwell on anything because the show is too concerned with rushing everything along. It never allows moments of characters just having quiet introspection like this.

Shirofag or not, I appreciate the episode for this alone.

Yeah, I can appreciate that it's a tricky thing to pull off, and a lot of people love these kinds of episodes so I'm not saying it's BAD or anything. I think I just really highly value interpersonal relationships in shows, so solo episodes usually just don't do it for me. This is also probably why I was never able to get into Samurai Jack

how old is prince mary sue?
he's clearly an altean/galra hybrid.
in order to be haggar and zarkon's kid, he would have to be thousands of years old
but it doesn't seem like he's corrupted with quintessence.
so that would mean haggar had a child within the last 20 or so years
unless he's some science experiment?

Real Shiro, user. That's not the real guy.

And he's not Lance's mentor nor has it been established in the show that Lance looks up to him as much as Keith does. Considering that it's Keith taking his place right now it makes sense for him to show that appreciation to Keith and not to Lance.

Ethan Mitchell

but if it does turn out this guy is actually a clone, this episode just feels like a waste of my time except for a few parts.
I think they're going to keep Kuron and make him join another faction in the fight against the Empire. They can't just suddenly introduce a clone and give him a brand new role without showing the audience that he's not, in fact, just a mindless robot but has his own fears and drive for life. All in all I think the solo episode was meant to introduce a new character that's going to be pivotal to the plot, whilst everyone else has had two seasons to develop.

Not those anons but I'm someone who is neutral on Shiro. I think he's a good leader but I'm just not super invested in his story. I do think he adds a lot to the story and is a decent character I'm just not personally attached to him.

If I was gay or a woman I might be more interested in him but I'm a straight male. I have no problem with people posting a lot about him though because I'm not a sensitive bitch who doesn't know how to scroll past posts I don't care to read.

I'm asking what excuse you'll be able to come up with to explain Keith's lukewarm reaction to Shiro telling him he's proud of him, in the event that the Kuron theory ends up being bogus. There's a very, very high probability of this clone theory getting BTFO next season. What then?

I personally find Shiro to be boring as hell. While yes in real life I'd be DTF a guy like Shiro, he just doesn't do it for me in his animated form.

And it has nothing to do with my history of having watched DotU. Shiro, to me, seems too perfect. You can argue with me until you turn blue that it's not true, but that is how I feel.

Story wise Shiro is also a fucking crutch. He's a detriment to the characters. He's holding back any development because he plays the daddy role and therefore catches them before they can make a mistake and learn.

My hopes for Shiro is that he fucks off from the group for a long time so the can develop and so poor Shiro can develop as well. I want him to not have to worry all the damn time and play babysitter. I want someone to babysit his ass instead or at least where he can truly be himself.

I just don't care for the boring guy,

Same. I think he tries too hard to mask his weaknesses. He doesn't let anybody in whereas he tries to help everyone. That's not going to do him any good. Though I don't think he's going to separate from the Voltron Force or die.

Xavier Brown
Xavier Brown

I think part of it is just how much of his character arc is centered on what the galra did to him and his ptsd, which is fine, but I've never been that into characters where so much of the focus is on their backstory. I think I'm bored with Keith for similar reasons.

Shiro also is just, too perfect? Maybe that sounds weird coming from someone who dislikes him, but I like my characters to have notable personality flaws that cause conflict sometimes. He's just level headed and smart and kind basically all the time. All of his "flaws" are externally inflicted.

Also some of this. Shiro's the mentor figure, the sturdy rock everyone can turn to. There's a reason stories don't usually focus on that kind of character; they get killed or otherwise written out to make room for the more heavily flawed characters to grow.

Relatedly, every time Keith fucks up and the narrative acknowledges that he fucked up, I like him just a little bit more.

Whether or not the PTSD was the result of his own actions I think it's going to build up as the show goes on and all the responsibility of having the team on his back is going to cause him to crack under the pressure via unhealthy coping mechanisms.

Thomas Myers
Thomas Myers

Agreed, I think however the fact that it's the role he's played for the team and that this is what's expected of him will contribute to however his character arc plays out. He's not just Roy Fokker 2.0. They have plans for him.

Original Romelle was in charge of rebel forces, Matt is clearly working with the rebels for a yet-unknown faction whereas as far as we know there's no evidence of the same for Shiro, clone or not.

Juan King
Juan King

This reminds me, I first saw this a while back in early/mid july but Akiman (Akira Yasuda, character designer for Turn A Gundam) seems to like the show. He had a few comments, I can't remember them all but he tweeted stuff like Lotor is amazing, the Blade of Marmora are cool, the animation is good, S3 passed in the blink of an eye, etc. I'm sure someone in the staff has gotta be a fan of Turn A, I hope they know or find out about that because I'd shit my pants if it had been about something I'd created. It's weird because the show is still pretty niche but people in the industry are more likely to watch it so you'll get some big names who've seen the show even though it's relatively unknown to most people there.
I'm not a fan of the space dad meme, but Josh and some of the official side materials kind of push it.

I'm wondering if people who prefer the other Paladins over Shiro skew towards being younger. Or if people who prefer Shiro over the Paladins skew towards being older.

Not out of any malicious intent though, just out of curiosity. I know most older lads like myself can't really relate to teenage characters anymore. I find the grizzled older mentor characters with the world on their shoulders more relateable. Any other 20-somethings else feel the same?

Carter Gutierrez

I never once believed Shiro would ever be Roy Focker. Maybe it's my old nostalgiafag intuition, but I have always felt they were going to go the Sven route with Shiro. He will live and he will be separated and have his own adventures, and get the best girl.

Judging from episode 7, I think what's going to happen is Shiro will start feeling less and less relevant or useful to the team since Keith is now directly disobeying orders and growing more competent. And with his mind even more fucked now than it was before, that's not going to go over well.

I'm almost 30, and my favorite characters are Shiro and Pidge. But for different reasons so I don't know if it's an age or relatability thing. I do identify more with Pidge in a lot of ways but I find that mostly coincidental, and it's more because she's cute, funny, and resourceful. For Shiro I just find his overall story interesting, the fact that he's a reliable nice guy is a bonus and makes his inevitable slide towards breakdown more fascinating to watch.

Relatability has never been a thing I cared about when it comes to fiction, as long as they don't act in ways that are completely alien to me. I think that might be part of why I don't care for Keith. Who is literally part alien and somewhat out of his mind.

It's hard for me to tell if I relate to Pidge, or if she's just a type of character I really like, but I'm 26 and she's my favorite by a landslide.

I'm not really a characterfag, I watch Voltron because I want to tune off my brain and see giant robots duking it out in space. I think having Shiro in there definitely balances out the team, though.

I don't feel very strongly about it one way or the other. I'll see how it plays out and then decide if I like it.

This is when Raht learns what's he's been missing out on

Liam Hernandez
Liam Hernandez

Kind of? His facial proportions do look pretty off, and the episode did have a lot of issues with being off-model in general like the scar disappearing and overall lack of consistency with Kuron's face. But that could also be an intentional choice given how uncanny valley Kuron was in general. At the same time the whole season did seem to take a hit in the budget so it's hard to tell.

I did notice that Kuron had those creases next to his eyes a lot of the time, which I think original Shiro did but not this consistently or prominently. The ones in episode 5 can definitely be attributed to stress, and maybe that explains his issues in episode 6 too.

Jose James
Jose James

Yeah, he looks very different from the Shiro in season 1 & 2. It's subtle but it's there.

Jaxson Perry

Well yeah, they do value loving in the sense of affection rather than sexuality. If two galra can't kiss without thinking of boning, then the spark of love just isn't there.

Pretty much, but it's a particular flavor of it that you don't see much of. Usually that refers to a kind of "rocket-punk," Flash Gordon-style, whereas Voltron is really a modernized 80's action cartoon/sentai show.

Bara is the only one that's safe from his gossip bullshit

Asher Fisher
Asher Fisher

Really it's hard to tell how much of it is due to animator art style signatures because that can also have a big effect on how a character looks in a given scene in animation. Look at the various depictions of the Major in SAC, and the first season of Jojo.
I'd argue that Kuron also looked just as off model in episode 5, but people don't point it out because hey, it was a good look for him, and because the long hair and the scruff are more obvious confounding factors to explain why his face might look off.

At least in anime, not sure about western productions, I know the process tends to be that the first season has the most experienced animators and stringent oversight on it, then after the show's established itself they let go and leave it to the less experienced animators. Which would explain why folks like Palmer and Ahn left mid-season. At this point in development I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case for Voltron.

Not that user but it's probably because he lets himself be vulnerable when he's not around the whole team. Like when he gets that wound from Haggar and he and Keith are stranded. He loses his facade and seems vulnerable outside of his PTSD flashbacks. Most Mentor figures are completely untouchable, save for a great sacrifice. But thats just my viewing

I'm one of the people who's not super jazzed about Shiro, but that scene with him and Keith where he was joking about his wound was my favorite Shiro scene thus far. If he used more of that deadpan, sorta dark humor, I think I'd like him more. Hell, now that he's not team leader, maybe that'll give him room to relax and be himself a bit more.

Akira Kogane's design is pretty standard for the era. Leiji Matsumoto does a lot of it with his characters too. Not the Harlock archetype, but Kodai from Yamato and Shep from Interstella, Ryoma Nagare to an extent.
It's why on the occasions I draw Keith I usually like to make his sideburns fluffier and more Nagai-like. It's fun.

I hope we get backstory on why they look different now. I didn't see any furry looking Galra in the flashbacks. I wonder if they were a different caste, or if they just didn't exist yet.

Same here. Although, the alliance probably didn't last long considering that the new interview confirmed that it was their cultural differences along with other unnamed events that caused a schism between Alfor & Zarkon.

Which might have meant that Empress Allura grew up during an extremely politically unstable environment, which explains why she went so fascist so quickly.

I really think that he/Kuron and Allura might swap duties on the Blue Lion when this is all and done. After all she still has some aspects of the Castle Ship only she can control.
And learning to shift roles from being the main leader and decision maker into a reliable supporting pillar, which is a bit more in line with his mentorly position, will be an interesting direction for Shiro to go, besides replicating the fact that Sven always piloted the Blue lion.

I strongly doubt that they're gonna have shiro/kuron go back to piloting a lion, but I don't have anything concrete to point to to explain this certainty. It'd just feel wrong to me. I guess part of it is, I can't see where they could take Allura's character arc such that giving up piloting is a step forward for her. She's already improved so much at piloting blue; Shiro was basically perfect at piloting black from the very start.

Ethan Brown
Ethan Brown

Okay, I've been thinking for a while and tried my best to put this into words.

1) He doesn't seem to be the perfect, untouchable big brother/mentor. He only appears to be perfect, but I think - and I remember an interview with Josh about this as well - that it's all just him putting up a brave front. Similar to but more subtle than Lance's bravado.
2) He has his own subplot that's important to the story and is yet to be resolved. Most mentor figures don't have their own stories to tell and are there with the protag from the beginning, with the same background. Even with mentor figures that have their own mysterious backstory, like e.g. Lockon from 00, the event is a secret to the audience but not the mentor figure. He knows what happened to him, he knows who he needs to extract revenge from, and he is focused on it. Shiro has gaps in his memories from his time in captivity and most likely doesn't know the extent of the Galra's experiments on him. He doesn't seem hung up on getting revenge, either.
3) The mentor figure is usually almost always seen through the eyes of the protag, and usually the first few episodes would have already elaborated why he is seen that way on a personal level. Like, say, Kamina and Simon. First episode shows why Simon looks up to Kamina, because he shields him from the bullies. While we can make speculations on why Keith looks up to Shiro, the story hasn't shown us yet why that's the case in the first place.
4) Even though he gives Keith advice, I think he sees Keith as an equal in a lot of instances too. Like pointed out. He's not preachy about giving advice to Keith and thinking about it, the amount of time he's given Keith support vs Keith giving him support would be nearly equal if not more the latter, what with Shiro needing to be saved quite frequently so far.

God that was way too long.

Yeah I know that. I suspect Allura to be the main pilot for Blue from now on. I just mean that Shiro will at some point get in Blue, if not pop in as a reliable pinch hitter. Of the lions it's the one that would probably fit the direction his character is going the most.
And even if his hand basically acts as a bayard substitute we don't know what weapon he'd get from using a bayard, and I strongly believe we'll find out at some point.

I thought it was kind of weird that the flashback totally glossed over WHY the Galra went along with the obviously space-roided out zombie Zarkon and started a genocidal war, when Alteans and Galra were close enough beforehand to have been living alongside one another on the Galra homeworld and even allowing intermarriage of their most important political figures.

Well, first they're told their Emperor and Empress are dead by the Altean ruler, and that same Altean ruler is the one who gives the order to destroy their homeworld. Then their Emperor shows up on tv, apparently alive after all. I can see some getting pissed that Alfor "lied" to them. And for others, it's a simple case of your ruler giving you a command, probably.

Eli King

Yeah I noticed it's kind of funny how despite being in the older mentor position Shiro tends to play the damsel in distress role so much, which isn't very mentorly at all. I don' t know if I'd definitely call it a fakeout necessarily but the mentor position he's initially established as is not something meant to last. It's why I don't think he's going to die unless it's like the very end or something.

And given that Coran was one of the few people who knew the truth and he was out of commission for 10000 years there wasn't really anyone to counter it.

James Campbell

This is a really good post. I'm not even an ardent Shirofag, but those who just write him off as "oh, he's the sturdy rock mentor figure" are doing him a great disservice and just outright ignoring actual plot points. I don't know how you can watch episodes like Crystal Venom and think "yeah, he's the well adjusted rock of the group, the shoulder everyone cries on".

4) Even though he gives Keith advice, I think he sees Keith as an equal in a lot of instances too. Like pointed out. He's not preachy about giving advice to Keith and thinking about it, the amount of time he's given Keith support vs Keith giving him support would be nearly equal if not more the latter, what with Shiro needing to be saved quite frequently so far.

This is also an interesting dynamic that few ever explore.

Brandon Brown

You make a lot of good points user, and it's got me thinking... I might just see Shiro as a bit of a mary sue?

That's not exactly the term I want to use, and I know it's kind of fightin' words, but I'm honestly not trying to shit on him. Just still trying to sort through why I'm so uninterested in him.

Maybe less mary sue and more, the tropes his character leans on are mostly ones I don't find interesting? That's at least a more diplomatic way of putting it.

Cause we've got
smart, strong, handsome, kind, and patient, pretty much always
everyone likes him and looks up to him, I can't think of any character(besides Slav I guess)who's had a single negative thing to say about him
amnesia(some, anyway)
tragic backstory that resulted in him getting a kickass battle toy
mastered his Lion pretty much immediately while the rest of the team were babes in the woods
levelled up his lion connection while everyone else was still playing catch-up
he's only really lost his cool as a result of aforementioned tragic backstory(again slav being the one exception)

I think the flaws mentioned before in this thread could potentially balance him out, and I hope that happens, but so far they all strike me as somewhat hypothetical. They haven't had much focus, or caused significant problems yet, and I don't feel like I can really take them under consideration until they do.

Again, not trying to shit on the character, it just always puzzles me a lot when I'm ambivalent at best toward something that other people are very passionate about.

Not a worry user. I can't really say much if the tropes about his character are just the ones you don't find interesting - that is your opinion and I won't hate you for that.

From your post though, if I can give my two cents.

I reckon it's always best to remember that Shiro is not just an ordinary guy like Lance or Hunk (sorry characterfags). He's the Garrison's pride and joy, star pilot of his cohort or something. So, if the below didn't happen:
mastered his Lion pretty much immediately while the rest of the team were babes in the woods
levelled up his lion connection while everyone else was still playing catch-up
smart, strong, handsome, kind, and patient, pretty much always
to me that would be inconsistent with the information we were given about the character. Advantageous traits need to be given to our heroes so there is a good reason why they're heroes who kick ass instead of just getting their ass kicked. Shiro's a really good pilot, top of his class, very diplomatic/calm leader. Keith is also a really good pilot who's got insane intuition. Pidge is ridiculously good at tech, which I'd say should be inconceivable, but like mentioned, it's a cartoon and she's one of the heroes.

everyone likes him and looks up to him, I can't think of any character(besides Slav I guess)who's had a single negative thing to say about him
Well, if there's a super talented pilot who's nice to everybody and is a good team leader, it won't make much sense if they dislike him for no reason.

tragic backstory
Because VLD seems to like a lot of story telling from outside the Empire and within the Empire as well, it'd make sense from a plot perspective that they have someone in the team who had a taste of their rule. I can't really comment on this one too much, but IMO I'd much rather it be someone else than Keith who's already got a supergalactic background, or the three newbies who'd have no reason to be involved in the first place.

Caleb Wood
Caleb Wood

I understand how someone can find him Sueish, and the fact that he's so absurdly competent in Season 1 ties in with the mentor aspect and is a big part of why I was suspecting they'd kill him off early, and was perplexed when instead they kept making him a vulnerable damsel in distress instead who does get saved after all. That and the scene in Crystal Venom plus now the Kuron subplot is probably what's going to kickstart the whole process, now that the lion change has taken place.

Even if it is wrapped up in hypotheticals, a major part of the reason I like Shiro is because I'm so convinced they're going to do this or some kind arc with him and that the show's been signposting it so heavily that for them to not do it would be the bigger twist.. I guess a lot of how much one likes Shiro comes down to how much at face value they take him?

As one of the Shirofags in this thread, I can get the complaints that this is all coming a bit late in the show now that it's almost reached the halfway point, but I think that says more to Season 2's relative weakness and meandering until th very end than about their execution of Shiro's character.

Yeah I don't know exactly how to put it or why, but I definitely got a feeling from him that he doesn't really care about his own life that much.

I don't think he's necessarily suicidal, but something about Shiro gives me the impression of not caring about self-preservation except that things will be worse if he throws his life away because he's in the best position to stave off Zarkon, and that's what's keeping him going at this point. He doesn't fight to survive but to make sure the villains don't win.

Someone smarter can probably come up with a better analysis as to where the show points this out but that's just the feeling I get from him too .And if the clone theory turns out to be true then that's probably going to make things worse.

You know about Kuron I do wonder, is he biologically human or Galra with the appearance of a human? Or a cyborg? I know he's not 100% mechanical because he needs water and oxygen and bleeds. Although, given he was able to last as long as he did and that eye scene, he might be more heavily robotic than that.

For that matter, who decided to push the Kuron project? According to the data book Shiro suspects Haggar wanted to do more with him which leans towards her, but it seems like Lotor was the one using him as a mole, and his goals are unconnected to Haggar's.

Julian Diaz

Before the war, was there a market for ethically sourced Galra fur? Being a furry Galra would be a possible source of income.

Evan White
Evan White

He somehow managed to live 7 days without food and water. He might just be a monstrous hybrid of machine and flesh fused together through that goo he was put in, that goo that was injected into him, and Quintessence.

Maybe he was made from Shiro's removed arm, like something from the Bible. Kuron is the Eve to Shiro's Adam.

Furry Galra would shave periodically to make blankets and coats and sweaters for non-furry Galra. That tradition carried over into the military as well, but they don't get paid for it now.

Honestly, all they would really need is enough cells to make a culture, immortalize it so the supply can be endlessly replenished, and then extract the DNA from that. The main benefit of taking the whole arm is just guaranteeing enough cells for many of the important tissue types and maybe a better understanding of human biology. You don't need to keep hacking off body parts to get more DNA.

Yeah for whatever reason being in the bio/healthcare field and liking Shiro seems to go hand in hand. Most of them are nurses/doctors and the like, I just got into bio because I'm a huge fucking nerd but and think flesh and blood bodies are cooler than machines. I'm actually thinking of shifting into computer programming when it's all done and through though because there isn't a lot of fun things you can do with that bio degree anymore. Dunno if that latter part factors into my Shirofaggotry but I think it does build on my affinity for scifi storylines like clones and the like.

Same. Even if he ends up being a crutch for Keith in the long run, the presence of Shiro either directly or as a factor tends to decide when I find Keith the most entertaining or tolerable at a given moment. Even if Keith goes berserk over Shiro being gone, it at least gives me something of Keith I can hook onto.

The only way I could see the Sincline theory happening was if Keith was Zarkon's bastard child who they tried to get rid off and even then it's unlikely.

One thing I do wonder is, wouldn't in most scenarios it be most effective to just have one pilot for Voltron when it's fully formed? Of course it makes sense to have multiple pilots for the individual lions, but I don't understand why it wouldn't be more effective to have the black lion pilot also assume control of the legs and arms for the most cohesive outcome.

Voltron does seem to lean towards the soft side of the sciences, especially looking at the goofy shapes of the planets. At the same time they do apparently do their research so they can make accurate jokes about the Fraunhoffer lines and the like.
