Ninjago Sons of Garmadon, episode 75 – semi-review

Rejoice! The day has finally come – new season of Ninjago has started, episode 75 of Ninjago has aired and we no longer need to live in anticipation. What you need to know is that, unlike the previous seasons, this one will not be released in a single day (or a quick succession of days), but rather each Saturday we’ll get another episode. Since this episode aired in Australia, while I was asleep, I had to use a bit of creativity to get to watch it. If you did not see the episode yet and do not wish to be spoiled – stop reading now.

Ninjago Sons of Garmadon - episode 75

Well, this is the first episode of Ninjago I had mixed feelings about. I’m hoping it’s because I’ve already seen 90% of it thanks to the various sneak peeks and trailers we’ve had. I definitely expected more new content. Without spoiling the story too much, I’ll try to point out what I liked and didn’t like about this episode.

What I really liked about the episode was the fact that it took time to explain all the changes (looks, voice etc) to old fans, but also the history of the Ninja to the new fans. This was done through the whole episode and was well spaced out. The only time I cringed a little during these explanations was when Harumi was describing all the Ninja. Although, I did find the Nya – ‘the girl’ joke quite funny. Gave me a chuckle. I also liked how they handled not mentioning the Royal Family up to this point. Kudos to the writers!

I disliked how the second part was rushed, especially when compared to ‘the chase’. They went over a lot of things real fast. I hope it’s because they want to get the story rolling as soon as possible. That aside, only one other thing really bugged me – Harumi’s adoption was revealed too casually, considering the fact the Ninja are actually strangers to the Royal family. It all feels like they’re just building up for a huge plot twist.

We didn’t really get to see the vehicles the Ninja are going to use this season (sans Lloyd’s Nightcrawler). Which is a shame. Hopefully, the rest of the season will have those included, especially Destiny’s Bounty, which, I assume, Misako took when she went on her quest to find Wu.

So, long story short, the episode was OK – but just that – OK. Did you see the episode? What are your thoughts?
