Unicorn: Warriors Eternal
A group of warriors are reincarnated throughout time to protect Earth from a powerful evil.
A powerful evil darkness is attacking Earth and in order to stop it, Merlin, the great wizard, gathers a group of warriors to fight against this powerful foe. Although The Evil can be defeated it is never truly gone and will return throughout time. To make sure Earth always has defenders against this darkness, Merlin brings a steam powered robot named Copernicus back from the future that has the ability to find the reincarnated souls of the warriors and reawaken them. The team includes Melinda, a powerful sorceress, Edred, a warrior elf, and Seng, a cosmic monk. Throughout time, the foursome has been able to keep the darkness at bay, but in the late 1800s industrial revolution England, the forces of darkness have a new plan and the team is awakened too early, leaving their memories and powers fractured. Can the team come together and defeat their enemy? Watch and find out!
The voice actors were all well-chosen, with Hazel Doupe as Emma Fairfax, the current embodiment of Melinda. Her character is more fractured than the others and she must vocally embody two different personalities, which she does well. Demari Hunte is Alfie who hosts the soul of Seng. Alfie is the youngest and his child mind cannot handle the weight of the Cosmic Plane causing him to be in a dream-like stupor most of the time. The soul of Edred is in Dimitri Dynamo, a street musician and is voiced by Tom Milligan. This character is the oldest of the three and seems the most stable, although he does admit that even his mind feels clouded.
Unicorn: Warriors Eternal is now showing on HBO Max and Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim with the first two episodes being released on May 5th, 2023, and new single episodes being released on subsequent Fridays. Created by Genndy Tartakovsky with a Manga animation style heavily influenced by Osamu Tezuka and Max Fleischer. The use of vibrant light and colors juxtaposed with darkness and shadows gives the series a dynamic, energy filled vibe. The steampunk atmosphere of 1890s London is fun and gives the series its own unique feel. The storyline is interesting and well thought out. The evil seems to be a bit more intelligent this time around with an unknown mysterious plan to finally get rid of the Warriors. The dialogue flows nicely smoothly giving the audience the expositional information without it feeling forced. The overall rhythm of the first episode did feel a little clunky, but it recovered in the second episode once all the warriors were reunited. Overall a nicely done animated series worth a watch.
I enjoyed watching this show, it is fun and filled with energy.
