Harley Quinn

Description: The series focuses on one Harley Quinn as she sets out on her own to make Gotham City her new home. However, one is not a warrior in the field, so soon a circle of crazy people will form around our crazy girl, who look at comic stories with simplicity and a very strong sense of humor.

In terms of animation, character voice acting, style, and musical selections, this series is exactly what is needed and everything goes down very qualitatively. More than once, simply putting on an episode after work can make for a very casual and fun 20 minutes. The style is reminiscent of older DC movies, but when they want to come up with something really interesting, they are able to give their animators real freedom. Yes, I don't think you'll watch this show just for the technicalities, but all the little things help you enjoy the story more, and the characters don't get bogged down even though they can be a little "Playing" on your nerves at first.

I'm in such a weird place about Meta-Humor, so it's really nice to see more and more series or movies that "get what it is" and can make fun of themselves. On the other hand, many variations of this humor are done just to make it look like a new trend. Harley Quinn doesn't shove anything directly in your face, but finds moments when to criticize the whole story in general or some strange things that we are already used to seeing in superhero movies. Also, it's a very well-crafted take on feminism and the role of women in comics. This is not the version where "every white man is bad" but just people with their own strange problems. Oh, just a quick note, I started to really like when such heroes are shown shopping, or trying to pay rent, or something else, if they feel more human and real.

Okay… often, very often, characters just do things they decided two minutes ago, so it's very hard to predict what their goal will be or what the end of the season will be. It's understandable that we're talking about a company of lunatics, but it really jumps out at some points. In the beginning it doesn't feel that strong, as the story expands the more it becomes a "and this week our heroes fight suuu..." style, where several episodes seem to just happen. This allows you to pick up almost any episode and just enjoy it, but it also means you're never fully invested in some goal or story mystery. And because of that, you might... forget that you accidentally missed an episode of the second season, for example.

Overall - 9/10
