>>91695001>Is Star a cool protag?
She's pretty cool. She starts off pretty "wacky" but she calms down too just "goofy" pretty quick and her character grows a lot over the series. She definitely has flaws, but the show doesn't ignore them or give her excuses for them and starts punishing her pretty badly in Season 2. She's learning, at her own pace, but she's getting there, and you want her to get there because you know she's trying.>It seems like nothing but wacky teen drama to me
The romantic drama doesn't develop until late into Season 2, and it's only really a plot element in 4 episodes out of 41 in the season. Granted, three of those are double-length, but only the short one is solely focused on it.
The thing is the drama is done well and it hits you like a truck because it's naturally developed and absolutely brutal. It's not forced, everyone acts understandably, nobody's really to blame and that make it hurt all the more.>>91695066>how much of the show would you say is wacky shenanigans vs plot/monster fighting vs teen romance drama?
Season 1 has a lot of wacky shenanigans and monster-attack-of-the-week, but it's not all bad and Star and Marco being battle buds help carry the show a lot through it.
The monster fighting and shenanigans get toned down a lot in Season 2, while the plot builds up.>>91695048>watch all these big Season 2 episodes chock full of spoilers before anything else
Don't listen to this jackass
Watch the show in order, let it build itself up. It starts off kind of rough but it grows on you, even before it really gets better, and watching the better stuff first will just make it harder to get there.
If you really want to get a taste of the better episodes beforehand, watch the better Season 1 stuff. "School Spirit" and "Monster Arm" are two of the better "filler" episodes. "Mewberty" and "Blood Moon Ball" are generally considered the first two "great" episodes, but I'd still say save them until you get to them.
