Cast & Credits
First, I want to go into what I really liked about My Dear Warrior. The reason I watched this series, to begin with, was because I saw Oab was in it. I'm a big fan of Oab, and the fact that he is portraying a cartoon character come to life and he just walks around in a kick-butt outfit the whole time... SIGN ME UP. I was also intrigued by the concept of cartoon characters coming into the real world and seeing what they will do.
2019 was really the year of characters from another world or time coming to our modern-day period and adjusting. One of the best parts of this series was seeing how Luna, Hoshi, and Kairo reacted to the real world. Finding out that Hoshi had no idea what normal bodily functions were was just hilarious and so unique.
There were some amazing action scenes, but the lack of them was one of the weaknesses. If you are looking for romance, the romance scale is through the roof on this series. There are also some hilarious side characters that are actually useful for once.
Alright, time for the dirt. As much as I love a good romantic drama, My Dear Warrior may have gone a little too crazy with the romance. As I said before, there are not a lot of action scenes throughout the series and those scenes are filled with a lot of staring into each other's eyes while the instrumental version of the theme song plays in the background. Of course, if that's what you want, then you're set!
The reason I gave the story a 7.5 is because it was just too long with not enough risk. You gotta admit that no good drama has a romance with no imminent threat lurking in the background just ready to pounce on our fragile hearts.. In My Dear Warrior, there are four risks that exist: Hoshi's romance with Luna, the evil beyond evil villain, the fact that Hoshi, Luna, and Kairo are cartoon characters and they have to disappear at some point, and something about a full moon. While all of these risks are mentioned throughout the series, the biggest threat to Hoshi and Sky's romance is him going back in the book. The other risks really do not have any importance even though the series wants you to think that they are. And like seriously what is that thing about the full moon, cause like they never come back to that, do they?
Alright, enough of that! Now you're wondering how you should watch My Dear Warrior. I'll cut to the chase:
1. If you want a nice drama filled with romance, action, and magic... Watch episodes 1-10, skip 11-14, and then watch episodes 15-20. You're not really missing anything in episodes 11-14.
2. If you want more of a romantic punch with your sprinkle of action, then watch all the way through.
