Because it’s my favorite children’s show to cackle at. Come on, spinning blades of metal with the spirit of beasts inside that can tear down whole buildings and create wormholes? Not only is that hilarious, but why didn’t anyone think of killing people with those things?
…and also because I’m a shameless lover of all things Kai.
Thus, I revisited my childhood and took an innocent show where it shouldn’t go by mixing in a bit of Assassin’s Creed, James Bond, and a good old dash of sarcasm.
