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.
