I don’t know who is stalking my humble blog over here but please, keep on doing what you are doing! And I will keep on doing what I am doing!
Anyway, the Sci-Fi genre strikes again with with yet another Space Adventure series, starring a whole lot of people of colour, the main character herself being not only one of us but also gay!
Like, can you talk about making one’s dreams come true!?! When one of your favourite genre gets with the programme and catches up with the world, having a female main character who is basically representing three, nay, four camps, like, how not to fall in love!?!!
And unlike SyFy’s VAGRANT QUEEN which was a silly comedy in space, this is 100% serious and the budget is up there and the characters here are more complex so is the story and did I mention it looks good?! But really, all shows made outside of American look good so…
But there is one caveat here and that is that sadly my condition kicked in here! While I knew that Ash (the main character) and Verona (the tomboy) would be the ones from the get go, I was into a different ship altogether and when it did not pan out I of course was not tuned into the one that did!
Yeah, I totally don’t like the ship they went with here, which is why this is going to be a short post! I am just sharing it because I actually love the story and the characters (except Verona, and my gut was right not to like her given the ending) and I don’t know if I am biased given that I don’t ship them but their make-out scenes were awkward as hell!
That being said, there was a moment between them that did squeeze my heart a bit. When they went to a certain planet to steal fuel cells for their ship, Ash got stuck under water where the cells were stored. Verona had aquaphobia (fear of water) but she jumped underwater anyway in order to save Ash and there they had their kinda first kiss when Verona passed Ash some air. That was also where their relationship started into gear.
Other than that though, yeah, I was just not into them!
But like I said, I was into everything else. The characters like I said were great, complex, villains are not really villains and heroes are not really heroes and also relationship-wise, I give the show props for pulling a Kannazuki no Miko, where the main character is stuck into a threesome with a girl and boy and ends up with the girl!
That is very rare and it is totally commendable!
Even though I don’t dig the ship! But I am beating a drum here so I will just leave you all to it.
PS, I would love Candy (the blue-eyes alien doctor) for a girlfriend! That tongue of hers…whew! Imagine the things she could do with that tongue! Just thinking about it is making me…
