The vibrant colors and striking soundtrack combine to make this really enjoyable to watch, and the very intricate story keeps you guessing about what comes next. There are some visual similarities between Wakfu and the gaming animation from which it takes its inspiration. As for the characters, whether villain or hero, each has a complex history that evolves as the story does, making for more thoughtful content than your average cartoon offers.

Violent exchanges mark the heroes' encounters with a variety of villains, but nothing about them should come as a surprise to grade-schoolers who watch any other action-adventure cartoons. What stands out instead is the unlikely hero in Yugo, who proves that qualities such as gentleness, compassion, and resourcefulness are just as heroic as size and strength. Even better, he welcomes the help of his friends and values their talents as highly as his own, the true mark of a leader.
