Critic Reviews for Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 6

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (0)

Season 6 feels more like the end of an era, bringing to a close this journey of discovery that the Paladins have been on since the day they first discovered a Lion of Voltron hidden away on Earth.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a short season, but the pacing and plotting works, especially since the early episodes take time to explore heady sci-fi concepts and personal relationships before the last few installments rocket to a break-neck pace.

Jan 2, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's a season that delivers not just some of the best animation of the series, but the most electrifying action sequences on TV this year.

Jan 2, 2019 | Rating: 4.8/5 | Full Review…

If season six is anything to go by, the show is now on course to deliver something truly exhilarating as it barrels to that conclusion.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

It will take you on a roller coaster ride of feels that will leave you breathless, delighted, heart broken, and will annihilate every feeling in your body.

Audience Reviews for Voltron: Legendary Defender: Season 6

  • Jan 18, 2020
    This season looked and sounded stunning. But in retrospect, every single one of the problems that exploded in S7 and S8 began here. Dropped plot-threads = we are never told what exactly Operation Kuron was for, Lance and Clone Shiro's interactions from previous seasons goes nowhere, and the Second Colony is completely ignored. The way long-running issues are "resolved" entirely offscreen = Keith gets over his abandonment issues and fully reconnects with his mother during a timeskip. The obliteration of the found family theme = first of all, all the paladins except Keith are ready to abandon "Shiro" when he goes crazy, even though it's really blatantly obvious that he is under mind control. Then, we get an intensely emotional episode where Keith fights tooth and nail to save "Shiro." The very next second of the very next episode have the real Shiro tell us that none of it meant anything, because we shouldn't think of that guy as a person, but rather as a "thing," whose life only had any value insofar his horrible death could provide the convenient tools to save somebody else. Keith might as well have smashed one of the pods and grabbed one of the random bodies and run away without fighting, and the end result would have been exactly the same. What kind of found family story has the heroes just flat out discard a teammate they have been fighting side by side with for months? The Moral Myopia trope = while Lotor did commit a horrible crime, it doesn't change the fact that attacking him caused the reigniting of the war. Removing Lotor as emperor was guaranteed to cause billions of deaths. The heroes acted like well-meaning idiots and caused untold amount of damage to many innocent planets, and of course the narrative never acknowledges it at all. The random introduction of new characters that never get any real characterization and basically just exist to take precious time away from the characters we actually love = Romelle is just a living Deus Ex Machina. She looks cute... and that's about it. Given how coincidental her meeting with Keith was, she could have been replaced with a recording or a hologram message or a letter written in blood. The ugly messages = it was really depressing that the show chose to go with "there is no hope for a survivor of child abuse, you are doomed to be just as bad as your parents. Only people with good parental figures can be good!"

    Shiro and Keith's relationship is the best.
  • Jul 11, 2019
    Kuron and Lotor deserved better. If at least the next seasons had given them a bit of compassion, S6 wouldn't be so bad. But once you know how they end up, it's too upsetting.

    Just one thing about the end: WOW incredible.

    Voltron's best season.
  • Dec 29, 2018
    Remains as the best season in terms of satisfaction of having some major plot resolved. Gorgeous scores and animation, and some of the most emotional scenes in the entirety of the show. Definitely worth all the praises it received.
  • Dec 22, 2018
    One of the best seasons
  • Dec 16, 2018
