In the season finale to Amphibia, Anne and the others are finally able to return home. However, when Sasha and Grime reveal their plans, a series of revelations shatters the world of Amphibia like never before as things are changed forever.
For about as long as I can remember, I have been a fan of Disney. I grew up watching their movies and shorts. I’ve enjoyed their shows on Disney Channel and Disney XD. They make really great stuff! But just because I love a company for their products doesn’t mean I’m going to ignore them when they make a mistake. In fact, it’s because I love Disney so much that I feel like must call them out when they screw up. And Disney, you just screwed up with Amphibia. BIG TIME!
Okay, I’ve been saying this for close to a year now, but I need the soundtrack for Amphibia on ITunes! And I need it now, because this show’s got some crazy awesome beats to it. But before I go all fanboy, it’s important to note that this is the penultimate episode to the second season of Amphibia. On the surface, it may look like another light-hearted episode. However, when you remember the fact that the season finale will likely see Sasha turn on Anne once more, possibly even Marcy, then it makes this episode all the more heartbreaking. It’s the final moments that Anne, Sasha, and Marcy will likely have as friends for a long time before things get really, really dark.
Ever since the show started, fans have been waiting for the moment when Anne, Sasha, and Marcy would reunite. Thus far, it hasn’t failed to disappoint. Anne and Sasha’s reunion was tragically bittersweet with both sides gaining their own scars. In contrast, Anne and Marcy’s reunion was far more joyous, with the two’s friendship as strong as ever. However, that’s nothing compared to what we wanted to get out of the reunion of what I’m calling the “Amphibia Human Trio.” And this episode managed to deliver on that, even if it wasn’t as long as I wanted it to be.
I hope that everyone got their fill of wholesome in the last two weeks of Amphibia, because that ends this week as the show hops back into the overarching story. As Anne, Marcy, and the Plantar’s journey to the second temple, Anne comes to terms with her past mistakes and showcases some serious growth as a person. Meanwhile, Sasha has the chance to see how she needs to change, only to cast it aside and isolate herself even further.
Welcome back to another episode of Amphibia, my fellow frog fans! If you were looking forward to seeing the main plot of the show advance, though, then I got bad news. That’s not happening until next week. However, if you were looking for some fun episodes that show off the supporting characters and their development, then this is the episode for you. We see a newer, softer side of Mayor Toadstool, and Maddie and Marcy give us the womance that we never knew we needed. Womance is an actual term; look it up!
So, remember that robot that got created in that factory in the Season two premiere? The one that followed the Plantar’s all the way across Amphibia as a running gag? Well, the episode where Mr. Frobo finally joins the Plantar’s has come at last!
You know what I love about my generation? The fact that we tend to wear our love of the pop culture we grew up with on our sleeves. And Matt Braly makes it no secret his love of video games and RPG’s like The Legend of Zelda. I’m not that big a fan of Legend of Zelda, but I appreciate its importance to video games. And with the quest to find the temples to recharge the music box about to begin, this episode’s going to have plenty of Legend of Zelda oozing out of it.
Trust. It’s one of the most things that a person can learn about in life. We need learn to trust in others, or else we won’t get far in life. Why am I bringing this up in a review about Amphibia? Because trust and honesty is the underlying theme behind this week’s episode. Keep reading some more, and you’ll see what I mean.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE DROUGHT’S OVER! After a months-long vacation, Amphibia officially returns for the second half of Season Two. And given the trailer that Disney dropped on YouTube, Matt Braly’s team has big plans for the show. Legend of Zelda-esque temples; ancient puzzles and prophecies; even greater mysteries to solve. I am beyond pumped for what’s to come. Before any of that can happen, though, it’s time for Anne and the Plantars to return to Wartwood in the season 2 opener. Which, for some reason, dropped on Disney Channel Africa already, then got leaked onto the Internet. It’s like that one episode of The Owl House from months ago, but I can’t complain.
While we won’t be seeing more of the show until 2021, Disney was nice enough to give us one more new episode of Amphibia to tide us over until then. And it’s a Halloween special, to boot! Granted, this won’t be the first time Amphibia has given us episodes that are perfect for the Halloween season. That’s not the point, though. The point is that we got some more Amphibia, and I’m not passing up a chance to review it. That, and I want to give my two cents on the stories being told.

Well, everyone, the gang’s finally in Newtopia and all settled in for the next leg of their journey. The good news is that that means we get some more episodes of wacky hijinks in a new setting. The bad news? We have to wait a while for the plot to move forward. The silver lining to it all, though? We got another cute picture of little Anne! Enjoy the adventures in Newtopia!
It’s been a long and arduous journey, but Anne and the Plantar’s have made it to Newtopia. And they found out that Anne’s friend Marcy is the city’s protector in the process. Given what we know about the rest of Season Two, it’s safe to say that we’ll be staying in Newtopia for some time. Which is fine by me, because it looks like an awesome city. After getting a glimpse of it at the end of last week, this week’s episode sees us dive face-first into Newtopian life.
We’ve known since the start that when Anne got zapped to Amphibia, her friends Sasha and Marcy went along with her. We learned almost at the start that Sasha was with the Toads, but Marcy? Her whereabouts remained unknown, and led to a lot of fan theories and ideas. Then the Season Two trailer rolled along, confirming that the two would meet. Now, at last, that moment is here: Anne and the Plantars are in Newtopia! Does it live up to the hype, though, and is Marcy as good a character as we hoped? The short answer is: yes and yes.
