A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Master Raindrop is unique in that it features the elements (water, fire, etc) and martial arts, but it definitely follows the typical good versus evil plot. While the characters do work together and learn about themselves, the character development is somewhat lacking, therefore you aren't really rooting for anyone in particular to succeed or be defeated.
What's the story?
Is it any good?
The animated show is visually appealing, yet its storyline is typical of what you would find in other martial arts shows and movies. It does promote teamwork as the characters need to work together, yet even its choice of some of the elements (wood, earth, metal) feels a little off. While Master Raindrop has some features typically found in a martial arts show, they usually battle by throwing things (ball of flame, ball of water) at one another, and then others jump to avoid these things.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about how the battle between the elements might have been stronger. If Master Raindrop had thrown his water at Flamo, what would have happened? What if Flamo threw his fire at Shao Yen (Wood)?
Kids: What two elements would have the strongest battle against each other and why? How can the other elements convince Flamo to leave General Bu to join them? Why would Flamo want to stay with General Bu?
