Pretty good for what it is

As an adult, I enjoyed watching Mighty Magiswords, but it definitely has pros and cons for young viewers. Pros: The show models what is by and large a good relationship between siblings Vambre and Prohyas, showing that they solve problems best when they work together. Although both characters sometimes engage in bad behavior, there are usually consequences, and the characters learn from their mistakes. Also, Vambre and Prohyas are trying to make a living doing what they love, even though it isn't always easy. Finally, there's no “toxic masculinity” in this show; Prohyas is muscular and a good fighter, but he's also compassionate and loving (particularly toward his Dolphin Magisword). Cons: Vambre and Prohyas’ obsession with adding ever more Magiswords to their collection seems to model acquisitiveness (although, thankfully, there aren't actual toy Magiswords that kids can buy). Some parents might object to the skimpiness of Vambre's outfit, which leaves her legs mostly exposed. (This is explained with a recurring joke about how much Vambre hates wearing pants.) Also, the show frequently features rapid-fire dialogue and a frenetic pace that some might find irritating.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (15 ):

This loud, frantically paced collection of bizarre adventures that are fun to watch but really short on substance or value. Vambre and Prohyas are just like any other sibling team working together: competitive, snarky, and often looking to outshine each other. Sometimes that leads to arguments, sometimes to full-blown battles with their arsenal of magiswords, but most of the time they manage to combine their efforts and follow through on their missions.

Mighty Magiswords is an assault on the senses, even more so in its full-length format as opposed to the shorts that started the show. The longer episodes also become tedious to watch as the plot gets lost in the visual action. Kids may not learn much from watching, but they'll undoubtedly enjoy the characters' antics and the laughable mayhem that ensues when each new magisword gets put to use.
