I am genuinely surprised how much I like that series. Aya <3
Young Justice is too far up its own arse to be enjoyable.
Cannot agree more about GL. So much emotional depth to that series and the art style fit the universe so perfectly!
I enjoyed the first season of Young Justice but the second one just became confusing and crowded for me to care for anyone character anymore.
I will say that GL was the better series in a technical sense. It had endearing characters, fantastic voice-acting, and a wonderful long-form plot that made good use of the entire GL mythology. I will say that S2 was a little ugh for me (Evil Aya was just very, I don't know, monotonous), but quality-wise it was very consistent.
YJ had a solid first season. It still remains the best-looking animated superhero cartoon to me, in terms of visual quality and art style, and overall I will say I enjoyed watching it more. Just seeing the team grow and fight in different locations in every episode was very entertaining. But while the long-running Light plot of the first season was impressive, S2 just fell apart like a stack of cards. Timeskip was a bad idea, way too many characters, a plot that never paid off, and overall just way too many plot threads and not enough time to really make us care about the story.
