Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts gets even more fantastical and human in season 2





As with the first season, the fight scenes executed by the animators at Studio Mir are impeccable, utilizing the innovation of the characters, creatures, and world to their full advantage. At one point Kipo and Wolf go against a set of Death Stalkers, giant scorpion creatures that track heartbeats, a certain moments of the battle are depicted from the Death Stalkers’ point of view, where they see the two characters as red pulsing heart rates. Like last season, the show’s music serves to augment these already exhilarating scenes, with a tense battle set against fast-paced French hip-hop as one of the standout moments.

Threaded throughout Kipo is the importance of friendship and forgiveness, themes common in all-ages animation, but nonetheless handled with the utmost heart, sometimes interrogating the notion of forgiveness when it falls flat. As Kipo dives deeper into her mutant side and her powerful abilities, she risks losing touch with her humanity — a fate, we learn, happened to someone else earlier. But she still puts others before herself, her idealistic views sometimes clashing with her father and Wolf’s more pragmatic approaches. Like the first season, Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts balances heavier themes with moments of fun. The serious moments in season 2 are weightier than those in season 1, but it’s the balance of humorous light-hearted moments that continues to make the show stand out.

Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts is currently streaming on Netflix.
