It’s rare for a show to have such a good first season and such likeable, relatable characters that early on. Season 6 brought a massive conclusion to the Motor arc and wow, we needed it.
Seeing Motor’s descent into madness, along with watching another superpowered giant Mecca fight, was truly an experience. The answer was underwhelming for a lot of fans, but nobody can really complain about the flashback episodes detailing the rise and fall of the first paladins and Carbon’s descent into madness.
This episode also helps renew the efforts of the Vol tron Alliance and gives importance to those that don’t make up the giant mystical robot. The flashback sequences work far better than we should, considering that most of us assumed Motor was half-Altean and half-Galra, but seeing Minerva return for even a moment just hurts.
Obviously, the most important part of this episode is the introduction of the space dog Cosmos, the best boy in the universe. While spending two years inside the quantum abyss, Kaolin and Keith learn more about each other's lives and kind of makeup for lost time.
Overall, it’s a touching story with a twist ending, helping us lead up to some great finale payoff. The stakes were adequately upped from Season 1, including planting the seeds of the Vol tron Alliance via the introduction of the Blade of Marmara.
We also got some fantastic reveals, like Allure arguably being the most powerful character in the series, the Black Lion’s full wingspan, and of course, Shirt going missing. The payoff of everyone’s efforts and the final battle itself are enough to earn this episode a spot on the list.
Between Shirt’s erratic and out of character behavior, two Paladins for the Black Lion, and the fact that Keith is the team leader in the original series, we were all waiting for the fallout. Thanks to Keith being aged up a bit, he comes back to the team more mature and slightly less impulsive.
In fact, we get more information about Shirt’s connection with the Black Lion as well as Keith’s knife hinting towards the Blade of Marmara. In early versions of the script, Shirt was supposed to be driving around the mall’s parking lot the entire episode.
You have a heart of stone if this episode didn’t make you tear up at least a little. After learning her brother was rescued from the Gala by a group of rebels, Ridge sets off on her own again to find him.
Nostalgic and critical, she's interested in breaking down current and past shows and generating discussions caused by entertainment. Edit After the defeat of King Motor, the team responsible for this victory, the Vol tron Force, was disgraced when the Vol tron Lions went berserk and were taken out of commission without investigating the cause.
However, the team secretly has other plans, which come in handy when new threats revive Motor to help threaten the galaxy again. Now the team, with a new generation of cadets in training to help them, have brought Vol tron back online to protect the Universe.
An online event, known as Digicam (November 6-8th, 2020), will replace this year's convention. The only changes to our AMV Contest will be the new online format and voting system.
Unfortunately, we cannot have our AMV Battle Royale this year, but if you would like to be considered for 2021, please contact us. In this event, we pitch 3 editors against each other in a 2-hour live editing competition.
Last year, Doppler won the Dungeons & Dragons themed battle with only 1.5 hours of editing time! Due to a scheduling error we had to cut time short, but all the editors pulled through to make some incredible work.
We will send you a list of rules and see if you meet the qualifications for being a contestant. All of our rules have stayed the same, but this year you can enter up to three videos into separate categories.
Consideration will be given to other non-Japanese sources that feature such styles (examples of exceptions include Vol tron : Legendary Defender, Teen Titans, Avatar: The Last Air bender, etc.) TV station logos (“bugs”) and other commercial indices must be obscured or removed.
Bumpers and credits are NOT allowed as we will be adding custom-made intro and outro slates for each AMV finalist. Physical media (such as by mail) is NOT accepted at this contest.
Entries MUST be submitted by 4:30pm Pacific Daylight Time (UTC 23:30) on 01-September-2020. A panel of judges will convene to review all entries and select up to six Amos per category.
All entries must have premiered or been created NO EARLIER than the previous year's Morison (November 15, 2019). Entries that have been finalists in previous Morison contests are excluded from the 2020 contest. Each category will win one prize chosen by audience voting.
A prize is usually an anime DVD or Blu-ray, a manga, or an art book. Top prizes for Best In Show and Coordinator's Choice include anime figurines and/or other larger goodies.

We know that this year won't be the same, but at least we can still put on a great contest and enjoy some amazing art work. An online event, known as Digicam (November 6-8th, 2020), will replace this year's convention.
It's free to attend, and you can enjoy a lot of other events from the comfort of your own home. We will still be sending out goodies to winners of our contest, but they may be less extravagant, as our budget has changed due to the pandemic.
The only other changes to our AMV Contest will be the new online format and voting system. As we get closer, I'll send out information concerning when the contest livestream will occur and how to access it and participate.
