It's amazing that after six years, Catie can still surprise us with a great Boxxy video, and in some ways, I think this is the best Boxxy ever. The early videos made me want to know all about this intelligent, mysterious girl winking at us behind the mask. It was a dazzling joke, but THIS Boxxy is a person, a character, and for the first time, I care about her. I thought I'd seen enough of her, but now she seems like an old friend.
I love that she dropped the "my name is Boxxy" catch phrase at the beginning, and I love that she chose a topic about the web of a few years ago. This tells us a lot about Boxxy's chracter, mainly that she's getting older. She's not a child anymore. Catie's controlled performance gives us all of the quirkiness at a more relaxed mature pace.
I still believe that Boxxy's origins were influenced by Gaia, and Catie's adolescent obsession with anime, but if Catie's not talking about that, I think it's because she's taking the character in a more human, mature direction.
