    It’s been confirmed in interviews that are female galra.

    Yes you right in that the show is produced in 26 episode seasons, but the writers have always known that the show would be released 13 episodes at a time. So even though production wise it’s 26 episodes, the show is written as 13 episode seasons.

    • Dylan Hysen says:

      This is a good point if it’s true, and I think it’s a similar dynamic to Steven Universe. Not clear to me how much they’re just aware it’s released 13 at a time and ignore it, or if they factor that into the writing.

    I am loving Prince Lotar never thought I say that, you wanted Zhao, well how about a fusion of Zuko and Azula, I think that is what you got here.

    I am also loving Team Lotar, I like that including Lotar they are five of them, one for each Lion. I love when shows do that. And they are all female, so Lotar has a harem. Seriously I hope we get back story on these characters and how Lotar found them. Don’t disappoint us like you did with the Red Lotus.

    Obviously Keith’s main opponent is going to Lotar, Hunk’s opponent is going to be the big girl, Lance is going to be the red one, the others I don’t know yet.

    And red one she is my favorite, she is the Ty Lee of the show, and I could see some Sokka and Ty Lee type of stuff with her and Lance, but knowing Lance he might flirt back.

    Now than the new Paladins, it is what we all thought, so Allura pilots the Blue Lion, and Lance the Red Lion, and of course Keith the Black Lion, and we got a Klance moment, all right.

    So far enjoying the show, I am really exciting with the new Paladins and the new villains.
