Don't Mess with the Lady in Black...

...when she's on the attack.

Today, Jeff introduced me to the Burka Avenger, a Pakistani animated TV series. We watched the first episode; it's the only one we found translated into English (of thirteen.)

Jiya is a schoolteacher at a girl's school. But she needs help when evil Baba Bandook tries to close the school. Enter her alter ego, the Burka Avenger. The Burka Avenger's moves reminded me of those in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. I liked how she fought the bad guy's minions by dodging their attacks with fast evasive moves. I also liked how she hit the one minion with a book on a rope.

The show is fun. The theme song is catchy. It's great to have a superhero dedicated to girls' education.

Go Burka Avenger!
