Vincent is a shipwrecked privateer who has lost his crew to winged monsters. Aya is an orphan seeking revenge on the Starless army who killed her family. Through a series of unlikely coincidences, the warrior cat Chobo unites the two and leads them to Princesses Pira and Lono, who are making their final preparations to leave Spera and do battle with the evil Starless Queen. As the fire spirit Yonder infiltrates the Starless-occupied Plain Castle, the newly formed group is taken by surprise by another swarm of winged monsters. Can Yonder survive his mission, and can the Princesses trust their new friends?

The floor is a tired Twitter joke structure, and other online lessons. Of course, if you were employed at Mattel, maker of Barbie, you might feel differently, since internet denizens expended a great deal of energy skewering your newly rolled-out lineup of modern, ethnically diverse Ken dolls. Caity Weaver’s viral piece for GQ on the rollout of Mattel’s new Ken doll in all his ambiguously multicultural glory explored what modern masculinity looks like in the reimagined plastic form of the original “nice guy.” The internet took Weaver’s query a lot further, turning the dolls — in particular, the doll popularly rebranded as “Man Bun Ken” — into fictional representations of Those Douchebags We All Know.
