Rn i'm watching Amphibia and binging the early seasons of The Simpsons.

Old faves include classic Looney Tunes, Invader Zim, My Life as a Teenage Robot, and Wander over Yonder. I really recommend WoY, it's got GREAT animation, and is pretty underrated compared to the others.

My favorite cartoons are Hey Arnold, X Men Evolution, Justice League and Young Justice.
Never finished Young Justice, it was cancelled then it got uncancelled, dunno how it ended. Oh and Sym-bionic Titan which was also cancelled for some reason, and it was getting so good.. CN gotta love cancelling everything. I'd recommend Sym-bionic Titan if I didn't know it ends in a fucking cliffhanger, remembering it makes me want to cry.

Op pic rel, but I tried to watch Daria and I couldn't really get into it. I know the point of the show show is supposed to be very dry humor and the side characters are supposed to be dumb from Daria's perspective but they all felt a little wet cardboardish to me tbh. The only character I really liked was the crazy teacher kek. Maybe it was just because I tried watching early episodes, should I give it another shot?

Forever angry the Reboot license is with a deranged moid who ruins it with unrelated garbage spinoffs and won't sell it to someone who'd actually use it. The animation's aged so badly but the story is still excellent, it would just need a remaster and could be aired today otherwise untouched and have an actual end and not a cliffhanger.

Hm…idk, honestly. A lot of the characters end up being more complex, which is one of my favorite things about the series – Daria and Jane's friendship gets complicated in interesting ways, everyone in Daria's family gets more depth esp. Quinn and their mom, Jodie gets some really cool bits, Daria herself ends up having to face the fact that she's not actually surrounded by total idiots and she relies on the icy outcast thing to protect herself. But I'm remembering that all pretty cumulatively – it's spread out over the whole series, which is still mostly the really dry humor you might not be digging. It's not really a show you HAVE to watch in order, though – I think the first one I ever saw was the finale, lol. There is some linear development so you won't catch everything and some of these are some of the most climactic episodes in the show, so if you're not into that, ignore this. But if you're okay with skimming for the best stuff, I'd say watch these episodes to see if you dig 'em, and if you don't, it might not be for you:
>Gifted: Jodie and Daria tour a "gifted" school, end up hating it
>See Jane Run: Jane gets interested in track, Daria can't deal
>Daria!: musical episode, which I mostly remember for the fun format, lol
>Fire! and Dye, Dye My Darling: Biggest conflict between Jane and Daria in the entire series, a guy is involved, goes right to the heart of why their friendship matters so much to Daria and also forces her to look at the fact that she is also a dumb teen
>Boxing Daria: Last episode, barring the movies. Daria has a big crisis regarding her place in her family.

Idk what the fuck Pixar is doing with this style, it seems they wanted to make this movie as marketable as possible with the red panda gimmick and anime inspiration shit.

And she worked on "The Lion King" as the head of story (one of my all-time favorite films). I still remember a bit from the DVD, a sort of mini-doc about the making of the film, and she told a story about a father sending in a letter to the production team telling them he had to tell his daughter her mother had died, so he used the example of Mufasa and the Circle of Life to explain it. That bit stuck with me because Brenda starts choking up as she tells the story. You could tell it really hit her.

You’ve reminded me of a clip I saw a long time before the movie was released. It was definitely from when they were making Brave because it had a similar name and concept but I think it was 2d. It was really pretty and I was so excited and then disappointed when they started advertising the one we got. I’ve just let it go now but I was super confused for a long time. It had the same vibe as the intro sequence, which I love and creievrytime.

Saddens me because I enjoyed Turning Red. A movie about women and girls meant for women and girls. The struggles of puberty for women and the interpersonal relationships with each other. And the friend group is a strong bond of girls together. The bad numbers will only enforce moids shitty opinions about how bad female leads are. Fuck men. And fuck Disney, they put it on Disney+ without additional charge, of course that's a big reason the movie didn't make profit. They clearly didn't care enough to give it a leg to stand on for revenue.

how ? the most disturbing thing was the "twerking" and it wasnt even meant to be sexy, she was trying to provoke her mother but they didnt emphasize the sexual appeal. she just looked like a child awkwardly pushing her butt out because she is. correct me if i am wrong, but i dont remember the camera being focused on her butt either. it wasnt sexual at all.

what was gross about the plot ? genuinely asking. i cant see any reason why an actual woman hating this unless she was a self hating female
and i am not even a fan of the movie, i just watched it with my friend and her little sister because the characters were her age and i wanted to spend time with them.

I'm late af, but I agree. It bothers me that it's not real Anne and just a clone, that's literally not the same person we watched in the show. Might as well just keep her dead.

Them growing apart and having normal jobs seemed so unneccesary to me. It's the same old "and then you grow up and never have fun adventures ever again, but it's ok because you're a boring adult who likes it that way!". That is a sad ending to me, as an adult. Feels like it's written by a sad adult who had to abandon their dreams and now preach to kids that that is just "reality" and they "need to grow up some day". And they're only in their early 20s! You're telling me Anne's middle age parents were perfectly capable of becoming top secret alien fighters in the span of what? a few weeks? But the girls discovering other magical worlds and powers exist did nothing to peak their curiosity and instead opt for boring lives?

I would have been more satisfied if it just ended without the plot ever being solved and them going on adventures for the rest of their lives.

I'm not really super into monster high or fandom discourse so I might just be being retarded but I kinda get the feeling that mattel/nickelodeon might have undone the extra publicity they could had gotten from making Frankie a themlet by messing up the vibe of the designs. MH fans have been complaining for years about them taking any edge out of the designs which was making it lame but they just went and made them even more cutesy bubbly farty.
The people I follow online might be just too normie for this but the only time I've seen people mention the animated reboot is people weirded out at them making lagoona pink.

I kinda get the feeling they wanted to make the show more kiddy kiddy and they thought just slapping some woke stuff in there would keep the older (teenage and young adult) fans in. It will probably be easier to tell when they release a trailer of it.

I love X-Men Evolution as well anon.Easily my most favorite adaptation of the X-Men franchise. As much as I like the 90s carton as it was quite iconic, I love Evolution slightly more and I'm still miffed that we didn't get a season 5 and see how they would've handled the Dark Phoenix saga.

But yeah I can go on and on gushing over how much I loved this show. Awesome art style, great character interactions, and decent fight scenes, what more could you want?

I'm sad that I couldn't get into Young Justice. I really wanted to like it but I just couldn't. I think part of the problem was that I was hoping it would be like Teen Titans the animated series but it just feels so ho-hum to me. I also don't really care for the art style all that much.

Fuck yes Downtown, great pick anon. For context ,I'm a millennial and I finally got around to watching the show back in 2013 and I was kicking myself for not watching it sooner. I agree with everything you said, the dialogue and banter between the characters was so good and felt so relatable and realistic. I honestly liked all the characters as well, even the ones who are supposed to be annoying like Chaka and Jen. They all bounce off each other perfectly and I'm sad it didn't have at least 2 seasons.

I'm dreading when Gen Z/TikTok generation get their hands on it, we've already seen what they did to Clone High…

Oh man I remember watching that short. I also remember when it played on Cartoon Network for the greenlight special and even though I didn't mind that Kids Next Door ended up getting the greenlight (if I'm not mistaken), Kitty Bobo looked like it would've been a fun show as well. In fact, it kinda feels like a kid-friendly Downtown only with anthropomorphic animals. I would've loved to see this become a show.

I watched this when it originally aired on MTV and loved it then, and I still love it. For the longest time, I wondered if other people remembered it and I was pleased that at least on /co/, it had a following. Love the character designs and the animation, as well as the voice acting. Some of the LOL NERD shit with Alex and his fellow nerdy friends has aged kinda badly in my opinion, but I can kinda excuse it as it was the late 90s, not now.

on the same topic, I really do like American Dad. Not really the older seasons as much, but once TBS got ahold of it, the show really seemed to get better. Francine is a cunt and I love her.

I found it really enjoyable after I started skipping all the Todd-centric scenes.

I felt a bit conflicted on the lolrandum stuff.

Anyone watching Tuca and Bertie S3?
I only caught the first 3 episodes so far since I'm watching them online

Slight spoilers for S3 episodes:

I kind of don't like how they regressed Tuca's character again to make her to the lol random friend that ruins situations for other characters but then everything works out in the end. I thought she would of ended up less destructive to herself this season but maybe we will see where she goes from here.

I liked the idea of the second episode where she was seeing a bunch of medical professionals and couldn't find out what was wrong with her, but it spent too much time on the bees part. Also the Kara cameo didn't really contribute anything.

The snake episode was meh, the whole snake joke was overplayed by the end. I'm curious to see if the Figgy character will reappear after the ending to this one

I was hoping things would go well for Bojack, despite how awful he was, but then everything that happened felt justified too, so… there's a lot of things to think about with that show and season.

No. 226300

Watching first episode of second season, really hits home how most emotional growth and complexity in a show designed by a woman still is all on the male characters. Then including an abusive woman, Stella, as one of the few female characters and painted as a flat villain is disappointing. Not even the abusive fathers are portrayed as violent in this episode.

Was told to repost this here (from /snow/):

Major shakeups with David Zaslav stepping in as CEO of Warner Brothers Discovery. Scoob's holiday special was months away from finishing and has been cancelled. Little Ellen's latest season was completed and has been shelved and is now lost media. Final Space was not only cancelled but deplatformed and is now no longer legally available anywhere. Close Enough has been cancelled after 3 seasons. While most of the press has been focused on how live-action is being affected by the WB/Discovery merger the animation industry is likewise looking at an uncertain future, at least that under WBD's domain.

Zaslav is trying to get the finances under control (WB holds an astounding debt) and one way to do that is via tax write offs. They can use a show as a write off but in order to do that they are not allowed to profit off it in any way which means they can not release it. Evidently the tax write off is worth more than having these titles in their library. Longer term I think this bodes badly for western animation. The new CEO wants to trim up the amount of script-driven shows with the idea of having a smaller, current library of high quality heavy hitters and then lots of cheap reality entertainment. Animation is expensive and script driven and might not be popular enough to justify the expense in his eyes. They might pivot (like CN already was) towards focusing on animated content aimed at babies and toddlers ("Cartoonito").

This article is more optimistic: https://puck.news/zazs-tween-gamble/

Hard to say if that article is on the money or not, we'll have to wait and see. If WDB is orienting away from producing animated content for the tween+ set though then the Western animation industry is poised to take a big hit and current industry professionals will be vying for jobs in a much more competitive environment.

This image comes from a slide presented at WBD's Q2 Earning's Call this Thursday. Animation is directly implicated (in part) in a loss of 2 billion. The "restructuring of content" should give you pause since it is often corpo speak for, "We're gonna gut this".

New Animation Dark Age?

Warner Brothers Discovery is/was a major funder of animated content via Warner Bro's Animation, Warner Animation Group, Cartoon Network, and William's Street (Adult Swim). Netflix likewise recently restructured its in-house animation studio (laying off 150 people) and Disney recently shut down Blue Sky animation studios of Ice Age fame. So who's left?

I think it's alright. It's not the funniest animated show I've ever seen to me that's probably Oblongs, I like the dark deprecating humor of it but I laughed sometimes. I'd compare it to Aqua Teen Hunger Force but faster paced and more internet humor if that makes sense? It was created by people who did NewGrounds animations so there's a lot of homage to that type of stuff there.

It's a good show to sink an hour into. Its very much an Adult Swim show with dashes of old school Newgrounds cartoon (exaggerated facial expressions, fast punchy cuts and a thankfully relatively mature sense of edginess). It won't blow your mind but it does its job well.

I especially hate the showfags who haven't even touched a single castlevania game that try and dispute the criticism or nag that gamefags need to stop being nitpicky of the show and basically taking over and shitting up the castlevania subreddit. It couldve been great if they stopped trying to make character so bishounen looking and stopped trying to tumblr code everything.

I'm glad to see that somebody out there is at least trying to make more cartoons for children, you know, the reason why cartoons even exist.
Teenagers had sitcoms because they're supposed to be able to relate to real people in real situations.
These fantasy cartoons are nice for teens as well, but the themes are too deep or too complex for children that have to either watch paw patrol at 9 or watch amphibia or Star vs the forces of evil and not give a single tiny little fuck about who wants to fuck who because it's "icky" and plain awkward.

lmao no, cartoons don't exist because of children. They are on TV because they wanted to market to children though.
But I'm glad that not all cartoons for kids are poor attempts at "mature" complex overarching stories. I'm kinda tired of those. If people want to make that kind of series they shouldn't make them for children. Not only does the target audience (children) not watch them as much as older people, but the age rating restricts the creators a lot.

I may be late on this one but I recently watched Inside Job and I love it. I find it as enjoyable as Rick and Morty but with conspiracies and without the show being too obnoxious. It's rare to see a female lead for an adult animated series that is also likeable and I applaud them for that. What's also rare is that the male main character is an attractive man who is sometimes sexualized and objectified. Usually it's the other way around because of how most adult animated series are male centric so it's a breath of fresh air. Anyways it's a good watch. Hoping for season 2.

Someone on /co/ is making a webcomic called the Kyle Saga basically doing post-canon fix ficing of Nu-Ra and I really like it.

So what do nonnies think about the new Mario movie trailer, and what do you think about the way Peach is depicted? I honestly couldn't help but kinda roll my eyes at this "strong female character" attempt, with the battle axe and the biker suit, I just hope they don't overdo it, and that she uses her parasol a lot since it's one of her main items/weapons in the games.
I also feel like the second trailer spoiled the whole movie and that they could've shown a lot less and it would've still been exciting. Maybe half of what they showed in the trailer would've been enough.

Though I will admit I thought Peach's voice sounded kinda weird… I don't know how to describe it but it doesn't fit her character design and it sounded like the voice actor didn't have much experience in voice acting(I'm too lazy to look up who her voice actor is but I assume it's a famous movie actor who hasn't done much voice work).

Speaking of Bo Peep, why do the character designers think a strong woman has to wear pants? Peach could be strong/powerful in her dress.
Unfortunately the jumpsuit has already prompted "fan artists" to draw coomer garbage. But maybe she's wearing it in that scene because she just got off her bike or something

Forever mad this show was planned so awfully/got cancelled because her story and the mysteries surrounding the infinity train and her were the main reason I kept watching it. Glad the parts had at least some conclusive sub-stories though, think part 2 was my favorite, followed by part 3.
I just wish the creators hadn't assumed they would get 8 seasons from get go, this almost never happens and cancellations after season 3 are pretty common with cartoons.

I know I'm extremely late to the party but I started watching Netflix Shera and I like it so far. The tone feels different from the 80's show but that's ok. I know that Catra is a controversial character and she has been discussed to death. Personally she reminds me of those annoying friends I had growing up who would always get me into trouble but my parents and teachers forced me to be friends with them because they where from troubled homes and they needed a support system. I normally like female character with dubious morals and intentions but since this is a kids show I can't stop judging the characters the way kid-me would have judged themif she grew up with the show but I also was kinda mean spirited kid. I genuinely wonder how little girls feel about Catra and the show in general. Did any anons on here watch Shera with younger family members?

This is late, Ik but I actually watched Downtown because of this thread and absolutely loved it. It was on YT though so I could see people commenting and it was absolutely full of zoomers trying to moralfag. Every other comment was calling Jen a pick me and talking about how toxic she was. Shut up this is literally the point, they're not supposed to be rolemodels, they're young people acting like retards because they're young. And of course the same people complaining about her and Chaka never said a word about any male characters being shitty. They would comment under every episode so I remembered them and it was always talking shit about the female characters.
On a different note, the show made me feel nostalgic for a time I don't remember and deepen my hatred for social media. I just know I would hate Chaka with a passion if the show was set in 2020s kek

I know a lot of anons don't like Steven Universe (totally ok), but I have to say that when the show aired and I was 15 it was… a breath of fresh air in between so many cartoons that relied on shock value and gross humour to make children laugh. I don't quite like those cartoons that show vomit, or pimples, or whatever, or any show that is nonsensical and stupid, like Uncle Grandpa, Spongebob, Clarence, etc.
That's why when Steven Universe premiered, I felt like I finally had something to watch.
I agree that the series leaves a lot to be desired, especially the plot, which becomes more retarded as the show goes on. I think I stopped following SU when they finally confirmed that Rose Quartz was Pink Diamond. It was such a non-sensical decision, to make them the same character… I also didn't like how the narrative basically forced us to feel… sorry for her? I can assure you that I didn't and that I hate her a lot, lmao.
BUT I have to say the first couple of seasons are great. Steven is adorable when he is a kid, the songs and the soundtrack are gorgeous. The animation and backgrounds were also pretty cool, in my opinion: fighting scenes, dancing, explosions, interesting shots, etc.

I like they all resemble a bunch of kids I knew when I was a kid myself. That most of the adventures they have is made up or exaggerated by their own imagination.
And I love the little things, like when Sumo breaks his leg (if I remember correctly) and his mom tells him there is icecream hidden in the freezer so his siblings won't find it, it is like that when you have siblings.. I like when Clarence shows up uninvited to the girls slumber party and they have the same fun the boys would have but Sumo and Jeff are alone and they wonder what Clarence is doing in the girls party ("probably pillow fighting and talking about boys") and at some point they start dancing like the guys in boybands kekk. Also when Sumo and Clarence think they broke the tv when they were playing fight and lie about it "tv went weird out of nowhere" and the mom just tells them "just unplug it and then turn it on again, see?" old ass tech solution. I love their teachers, resemble a lot the ones I've had, I like the adults feel like adults even when they're ridiculous and that Clarence's mom is shown doing stuff with her kid, like when she puts Clarence in karate but she is the one having fun there while Clarence thinks it's boring. Also when Clarence was obsessed with that ugly doll he carried everywhere and people tried to make him stop playing with it.
I guess people might come at me for comparing it to Hey Arnold but it feels like the new generation's Hey Arnold in which there is no bigger plot about defeating an absolute evil to achieve world peace, just a bunch of kids running around being kids, but these kids are not the same, it's not the 90s anymore. I also watched Craig of the creek which is basically same premise and I felt that while it actually has good lessons here and there, the lessons (and the references) were kinda forced where Clarence goes with harmless fun and some references could fly over your head. Hey Arnold gets some nice lessons which I believe might be what Craig of the Creek probably tried to emulate maybe? But Hey Arnold feels a lot more mature, Craig and Clarence lack that maturity and go on a more positive note without the depressing moments.
I also like that I can enjoy it with my mom and she enjoys the adult characters too, and how she always point out that Clarence is probably an autist because he behaves exactly like the autistic son of her friend she used to babysit kek

Tl;dr: harmless fun about kids and crazy adults reminds me of Hey Arnold a little bit but has its own charm. Fun for all family, makes me nostalgic. 5/5 watch it always it's on tv.

I can see you are invested in the show and I think that's pretty awesome. I didn't notice all those things you just described, maybe if I watched the show now I could appreciate it more. I guess I just never related to the characters as much as you did, so for me it wasn't that interesting.
Also, I never watched Hey Arnold, so that may also explain why Clarence was not my cup of tea (since I didn't grow up with that type of cartoon).

same. it's kind of crazy it ever existed tbh. the amount of creative freedom and time these studios had to work on this stuff. what's interesting is now the process is obviously so streamlined and mass produced but the output feels much less than before. because so few animations now are even worth paying attention to. the 90s was much more potent in creative output and subversive dialogue.

what's really annoying too is that I'm sure there are so many animators and writers out there right now, itching to make something unique and interesting, without trying to shove a message down anyone's throats, but none of the execs will ever pick them up. that's why south park and the simpsons are still running… they just want things that already exist and are easy to and quick to run. there is zero interest in anything new or creative. and I'm not sure how that's ever going to improve now we're in the AI era.

i think, for me, a big aspect of enjoyment comes from the animations themselves. i like to see things that are hand-drawn moving around. i know a lot of shows are under hellacious deadlines and it's really not easy to make cartoons and put them on tv in general but every time i try to watch one of the modern adult cartoons i get so bored by what i'm seeing. as you say, there is a lack of creativity. there is also a lack of fun, a lack of the love of cartoons as an inherently silly medium imo, there's often this weird cynicism in modern adult cartoons that they have to have some deeper messages or be ironic in a way, idk. this specific era of the 90s was very punk. very free, very focused on authenticity, creating whatever you wanted and i feel like that's gone. i also marvel at the fact that any of this was even broadcast on a major network.
anyway my personal faves of this era:
- aeon flux
- the brothers grunt
- the maxx
- angry cabaret
- joe normal
- the head
- daria (ironically, one of the "cleanest" ones i like as far as lines, and i feel like it set a foundation for the stiffness and sterility of modern adult cartoons which i hate as i mentioned. i love it in daria bc it was so unique at the time.)

>I used to get asked about this serial a lot. It's never been on video in either VHS or DVD (there are reasons) though other Liquid TV animations were.

I recently watched Home Movies again, man I didn't remember it ending on such a somber note.

I never got the appeal of we bare bears. It's a children's show but the main characters act like manchildren. I'm not against adult protagonists in children's cartoon and hidden adult jokes but the way the bears act is so unappealing I doubt if they hadn't been cute-looking bears then no one would had cared much about this cartoon. They also desperately wanted to get an adult fanbase since they had many "relatable" weeb jokes in it but the show never got a major adult fanbase the same way SU and KO did.

Honestly have no idea if this is from a Western team or studio. I've been seeing so many posts about a short film called "The Lovers" made by an indie studio that I'm kind of surprised it hasn't been mentioned at all on LC.

So far what I saw looks pretty damn cool but I'm always worried when someone relies heavily on a story being LGBT+ (in this case it's a lesbian/wlw story) especially from Western or Westernised animators and artists but maybe I'm just overthinking it.

I have high hopes for this.
If you check their kickstarter they actually seem to have a very developed concept you can almost guess the entire story from the kickstarter tbh and I really feel there will be more a focus on artistic psychadelic animation and personal angst. The type of LGBTQUERTY stories you're talking about are usually extremely lazy about preparing the actual concept compared to that.
Also, I think we've reached a point in discourse where even the queerio kids want to have some stories where the characters just are LGBT without their non-straightness being their single character trait, so I'm hoping an artistic short like this wouldn't go into the cringy type of thing you're thinking of.

Their social media is just them posting resharing memes, which is definitely obnoxious. I see this a lot with zoomer/young millenial online-based indie teams and it always feels annoying.

I would even understand if they did it even just a year earlier than release, but at this point, it'll be forgotten in two years and this major hype they built up will go to waste. Not to say everyone will jump ship, but the reactions will be lessened.

Hoping the film will be at least an hour considering the budget and the fact that it's still incomplete.

The only thing that’s giving me red flags is the “20-somethings” and other quirky language used on their page but it’s easy to overlook at the studio trying to make itself more relatable and less corporate.
I didn’t notice the date, you’d think from the hype it was coming out in a few months.

it's a green flag that they call it LGBT and not queer. I welcome any gay story but I can't stand those "we're gay because we like snails and everything I listen to is automatically gay music omg please tell us how quirky we are" stories. I can't stand "we are sooo quirky" het romances either. This one at least looks like it's aiming for something more tasteful rather than baiting terminally online gay-larpers into talking about how relatable it is
But the fact that they refer themselves as "twenty something" year olds is a major red flag. Don't try to be quirky please

It was pretty shocking. The co-director posted picrel on her story and said she thought NFTs were neat. It prompted the studio to post a message about not supporting NFTs, claiming they don't support nor do them anymore, but the NFT company(?) she worked for continued to defend and sell the ones she created.

Sorry to double post but that's another thing I noticed when Zoomers are introduced to media. They completely miss the point of characters being flawed or realistic in any way, especially if it's to drive a narrative. They ignore that entirely and just think this character or media is BAD.

It boggles (heh) my mind how many people get their britches in a wad over her. Yeah she can be egotistical at times, but she's a very entertaining character and genuinely cares about her family. Her egotism was even explained in later episodes as a result of her growing up with an overbearing mother and not fitting in with other, more stereotypically feminine women like Minh and Nancy. I've actually talked to scrotes who love Cotton but hate her, as if Cotton wasn't a narcissistic abuser to his son and wives. Peggy actually encourages Hank to stand up to his father and generally supports Bobby and Luanne as well, even though her attempts at support fall flat sometimes.

I agree completely. I don't get moids who love Cotton's character. He's funny sure but an awful person.

It reminds me of the fanboys who hate Skyler White and simp for Walt

No. 304127

>>303701
NTAYRT. I don't know how unpopular this opinion is, but I have always loved Peggy, I wouldn't want her to be changed because she's """toxic""". However, I do have a problem with the way she's portrayed sometimes. It's just after a certain point, I started to notice that her flaws were being exaggerated to a ridiculous OTT degree, to the point that the writers seemed to want her to be annoying to the audience and to constantly punish her for her many mistakes. Sometimes the writers got way too mean with her and I hated seeing her suffering, crying, and being treated like a retarded idiot so often while her husband fixes everything she messed up. One or two times I wouldn't have minded, but it started to become too common. There was a season where the writers seemed to notice they were getting too carried away, and after a series of mean episodes they finally gave her an episode where she solves her own fuckups using her own intellect, so that basically confirmed it for me.
I always thought it was funny when she acted a bit selfish or overconfident for a quick joke and when her flaws are not blown out of proportion but, maybe it's just me, or because I binge watched the series instead of taking my time with it, but I realized the writing isn't always consistent - there are multiple retcons later on in the series so I take some backstory details with a grain of salt - and her character did change over time, though not always in a good way. Same with other characters. This becomes especially glaring when, at the same time, Hank started to become more and more flawless.

>>303827
>I don't get moids who love Cotton's character.
>It reminds me of the fanboys who hate Skyler White and simp for Walt
That's because they're misogynistic moids for the most part, they're unable to see male characters that are supposed to be bad people as bad.
I always hated Cotton with a passion, so much so that I have been thinking of posting him in the characters you hate thread, kek. He is funny and gave us plenty of funny moments, yeah, but he was a massive piece of shit, I guess it's one of those "love to hate" characters. I read somewhere that he would die but since I was still watching one of the early seasons I got impatient and every time he appeared I kept thinking "when is this fucker going to die?" I can't believe it took him like 10 seasons to finally kick the bucket. That scene where Peggy talks to him before he dies was so based, I love her so much.

I watched the show in full for the first time earlier this month and I had a blast with it. I remember the show used to come on at like 5 i the morning on Adult Seim way back in the late 2000s and I though the show was boring (I was a teenager) and slept on it.
But I gotta say watching it as an adult, I adored the show even if the art style is not great but if anything, it helps it stand out even more and it helps the show has some pretty good humor in it.

I honestly wouldn't mind seeing the show continued and they had Brandon, Melissa, an Jason as college students.

Reminds me of newer transformers stuff, especially the comics. I enjoyed them a lot but the seething never fucking stopped because dudebro fans cannot get over any sort of writing that is more nuanced than black vs white PEW PEW.

Also, they got mindbroken by some gay male characters and make text walls up to this day where they explain why robots that feel emotions, thirst and cry can somehow not feel love and can therefore not be gay even though the ages old first series already contained canon romances but they were hetero, so it doesn't count as love to them(?) (maybe that's how these people view marriages lmao).

I wasn't sure whether I should watch this new Superman since I love the style but am not a Superman fan. But now I will watch it for sure, thanks to all the seething. I am sure I will enjoy it. It always baffles me that these people don't move on. They are obviously too old for this or unwilling to engage with it anymore. They should rewatch the old shit they are into then instead of seething until they're getting strokes.

OK I watched a couple of episodes of this (wasn't paying full attention though) and I don't know how common this is in western animation, but the dialogue, pacing, even the voice acting in most cases sounded so tryhard and… tumblr-y? I don't know how to describe it but both the dialogue, humor, romance and especially the artwork (I never watched Voltron) remind me of a mix between western and Korean webtoons, which made me cringe. But sometimes there are good moments, and I really like Lois's character, her personality is cute. Obviously Clark is hot, but the half-toonboom animation and art style that looks like an imitation of Korean anime are a bit off-putting. And the fact that these two got their crush at first sight moment so fast made me roll my eyes. Everything seems to happen so fast. But hey, the action wasn't that bad.

If this is what Voltron was like, thank fuck I never watched it. I didn't pay a lot of attention because I realized from the beginning that this show makes me cringe a lot. Despite that, I will keep watching this way, because I don't actually hate it.

I wish cartoons would move on from that awful Family Guy'- or Rick and Morty'esque look where every character has frog eyes and sometimes even spaghetti limbs. It's so unappealing, especially if a show wants to be more than comedy. And I feel like 90% of all newer cartoons are drawn with that ugly style.
I especially hate the eyes. Simpsons might have actually started this, but at least it fit to that series and wasn't overused. I don't feel like even giving a series a chance when I see those huge geometric O-eyes with dot-iris and vector lines.

Still mad that Pantheon and Infinity Train got cancelled. Some of the few recent western cartoons I considered worth watching.

And as much of a fan I am of Primal, I am not sure how a third season can work. What made Primal so damn good, especially the first season, is the lack of speech, the wild, gloomy horrors of the wilderness they had to face and survive, the crazy monkey cults. All of this should be gone if the daughter is the new MC which is the only way to continue it I think. Also, no matter what the new dinosaur is like, s/he can only be worse than the mother.

These managers believe that you could just open yet another streaming service when most people already pay for five of them, upload two good series and get millions of subscribers within the first weeks and if not it's getting cancelled. I think people need to realise that there are too many streaming platforms, one of them costs like 12 EUR/dollars a month.

I still liked s3 but can totally see where you are coming from. And S4 felt useless even to me. Maybe it could have been better if they were more daring with the plot and interactions, but like that it felt like an in-between season without much of a reveal or things happening.

To be honest I mainly wanted the series to finish properly because I am into Amelia Hughes and the whole lore involving her. The central mystery was intriguing and you simply do not get awesome, badass but also broken older women like her in cartoons or anime otherwise. if you are very lucky you might get a male character like this and even that is rare, but women never.

It's a fucking shame that the creators were so careless to believe that they would surely get 8 seasons greenlit, something that barely even happens with mainstream shows. You should always assume that the next season will be the last one. In that sense s4 was especially enraging, since it was so damn useless. If they had wrapped up the main plot it might have had a bigger impact, maybe making more people watch it and allowing more season. Stuff like s4 would have worked as spin-off and sequel too. The important shit should come first.

I'm going to sperg out here:Jellystone is a massive shitty disgrace to all Hanna Barbera cartoons and if you say anything remotely negative about it some retarded autistic fans are going to accuse you of being an angry boomer or even a nostalgiatard.I don't know how something devoid of imagination, soul and heart (the older cartoons have) got greenlit.this pile of shit shat all over the original cartoons yes I know I sound like a Boomer but many fanturds are acting as if this garbage is a faithful revival which is obviously not.hate the bald man child who created this.William Hanna and Joseph Barbera are rolling in their graves.

So Kung Fu Panda 4 is going to come out in 2024 and it looks like it's going to be repetitive. There's also this character that's going to be the second protagonist and she looks like she's from Zootopia instead.
I loved the Kung Fu Panda trilogy but I feel like they're going to ruin it with the next movie(s).

I know Kung Fu Panda has always been popular with furries but why make the new female character a fox?of all the cool animals why a fox?it's repetitive and boring they can't choose another animal already?foxes are extremely popular with furries but this is getting stale.I just know there's already r34 of her.

am I missing something as to why this show seems to be so unanimously loved? I couldn’t make it past ep 4. maybe I had too high expectations because I liked the artwork/animation, and the concept of a gnc female samurai sold me. it has a lot of the ingredients I would typically like, but it was so poorly executed
>created by a white man and his wasian wife
before I even looked it up it was so obvious that this show was created primarily by white people and perhaps a self-hating wasian with a surface level understanding of japanese culture. it’s pure self-fulfilling western fantasy fueled by white guilt and orientalism
>gnc female mc is NOT actually a lesbian
disappointing
>other lead decides to runaway from her life as a princess to be a prostitute and this is perfectly reasonable
this part was so stupid, not to mention how excessive the sex scenes were in general
>badass mc is unreasonably powerful despite having little formal training and no real training arc
I just don’t like this trope. everything about this show felt too unrealistic

It's already been discussed in the animation cows thread and I couldn't make it past the pilot, but I find it so weird how hard they insist on Mizu's mother being a whore who fucked a white devil wah wah it sounds simultaneously self-hating and extremely fetishistic from Noizumi's part considering she apparently wanted the show to be rep for her blue eyed daughter (who is 3/4 white ??) and I can't get past the basic ass names that sound like they were picked for a 12 years old weeb's first sparkledog OC and the surface level cultural understanding that you mentioned.

Also it might sound nitpicky but WHY is America so allergic to the idea of handsome Asian men ? What the fuck is going on with Taigen's face ? They really couldn't watch a bunch of old historical movies for inspo ?

oh I missed this being posted about in the other thread so I’ll try not to repeat what has already been said, but I totally agree. the entire show reeks of fetishism mixed with modern western values to appeal to scrotes who are addicted to jav (like how geishas are treated as “sexually liberated” women while also being a bit taboo by doing degenerate acts). taigen also pisses me off as a character because he’s so ugly but also the main love interest for both female leads. like all of the male characters are ugly. weird how they can’t write decent male asian characters, but unsurprising since this show was created by a white moid. I get if someone enjoys the action sequences or the mc on paper, but that’s all there is to like imo

Not trying to turf. I liked the action scenes and Mizu. I found it flawed but it was enjoyable enough. Nowhere on the level of something like Arcane but not as awful as a lot of current cartoon slop.
>>346679
There's a lot of genuine criticism and I also found the prostitute stuff unnecessary and fetishy but the part about her mom is a twist, the prostitute isn't Mizu's real mom. They put so much emphasis on the "true" identity of her mom at the end I wouldn't be surprised if her mom ends up being white somehow while her dad was Japanese.

Updating to say I watched it and I adored it! Since I haven't read the comics I have no comparison or gripes about the alleged inconsistency there but as a fan of the movie it was wonderful. I loved the animation, the humor, how the director, creator and OG cast mostly came back and expansion on everyones backstories.

Love bee and puppycat. IMO the genderbent adventure time isn't worth it; natasha allegri wasn't involved (and she's the one who came up with fionna and cake). I think the crew who were on board got lost in the sauce and it has the same weaknesses as latter seasons of adventure time (trying to do too much/be too deep)

I'm rewatching this. As a kid I watched up to maybe season 3 and then the rest went unaired for awhile and I got too old to care. It's ugly as sin, sure, but it's a good show.
One thing I don't get though is that people say Courtney is a better friend to Ginger than Dodie. Unless Courtney gets a redemption arc later, I don't see it. I have a soft spot for her in the way I like Rarity from MLP for being so over the top. But a better friend? Nah. Not trying to defend Dodie though. She sucks too.

Finished picrel today. It brought back so much memories, and I finally knew what episode the specific scene of someone making mashed potatoes and dropping it on the floor, then scoped it back to the pot, and Lor -the blonde girl- saw him and decided not to eat the mashed potatoes, and her family of 19 or something ended up all sick and she took care of them all. It was a Christmas special where she recalled the incident, I finally know!
The overall show is good, it's hilarious and fun, and I enjoyed Tino's -the blond boy- parents divorce and mom's remarriage possibility plot. Lor is my favorite character because she's so braindead and a good gnc/tomboy character. Carvar or whatever his name is -the black boy- and Tish -the redhead girl- are the worst of the cast and very annoying, but they did have their moments as well. Tish's mom is so cool lmao.

I just got past the 2nd TV special where Ginger goes to the private school, and then the episode where Courtney exposes the plan to break up Darren and Ginger.

I wish it would, but it didn't seem as popular as the so-called "classic Nicktoons". I didn't even know what happened to the show in later years until recently. Nostalgiafags probably overlook it because it was too realistic and for girls.

I think she got proper redemption considering her character. It trickled in slowly and she had some moments of regression but she eventually got there. And then her family goes bankrupt
and homeless for no reason at all and we're supposed to cheer for that or something because rich people bad. They could've at least showed us her getting adjusted to the new lifestyle and settling in a smaller house and eventually realizing it isn't bad and getting even closer to Ginger now that they're of equal economic states to an extent. Just give her a happy ending I'm begging you.

Yeah the way her family just got written out of the show was so bizarre and honestly kind of mean spirited. Like does she just die in poverty now? None of the rich family appear in the flash forward future scene at the end. Like what happened to them

Anyone watching Grimsburg or only me? The first 6 episodes were absolutely garbage, but the last three were actually really good. I am actually enjoying it. I don't know why the quality jumped so abruptly, it was in some sort of development hell limbo for a few years, so maybe that's why? I really love the female characters specially, they are surprisingly funny considering fox cartoons have a horrible track of having boring, one dimensional female characters. I fucking love the autopsy autist and i am surprised the mom has so much going on, normally they are super boring coombait or stay at home moms that do nothing. It also has some sweet moments.

I'm glad that the Invincible cartoon is diverging somewhat from the comics. So far all the changes seem to be improvements imo.

Okay I'm all done and it's time for my cartoon persona to cross my arms and offer my critique:
Wow. I went my whole life not seeing Season 3 and expected so much of it and it just, didn't really do anything. Like, they enter high school, there is some minor drama with Darren being on the football team, his relationship with Ginger, and then it just ends like that. Courtney and Miranda are practically written out of the show, other than Courtney getting bullied a few times and then the grand finale of her becoming poor. By the way last anon, it's implied she moves into the Foutley's old house. She doesn't die in poverty. But still. They really could have done more with her character. It seemed like the creators wanted her to get her comeuppance but she really wasn't as bad a bully as Miranda, just a histrionic diva, so why even go this route?

Other than that, Macie has zero character development which sucks. They try to force Carl to change but the show doesn't last long enough after that to really convince the viewer. Polly and Noelle vanished too, why? I know they had to cancel this show due to poor ratings so the creators probably had more in mind than just wrapping it up so abruptly, but I really wish we got more than this.
I can't believe Rugrats All Grown Up lasted longer than ATBG.

She was race swapped from being a dumb blonde too stupid to figure out if Mark was a hero. Apparently the episodes had different writers and the way she responded to mark was inconsistent with her behavior in other episodes. Combine those two factors and you get the intense hatred of Amber. this is why I hate race swapping because it gives a socially acceptable excuse to be openly racist and use every slur in the book.

This show isn't as bad as people let on and I've become unironically invested in it. It's not a good show either, but the hatetrain is way overhyped. It's more tolerable if you view it as parody.

Truly an unpopular opinion. The only good thing about this show is the nightmare/tripping scenes where the animators get to actually try for a change.
