I'm waiting for the day Hulu or Netflix puts up Recess. I'd love to binge it in order and get some nice nostalgia.

Cartoon Network: PPG, EENE, Flapjack, Regular Show, and Clarence.
Adult Swim: Superjail, Moral Orel, 12 oz Mouse.
Nick: Invader Zim
Disney: Wander Over Yonder
Fox: King of the Hill, Simpsons, BTAS.

>What are you watching right now?

Last two cartoons I watched are actually Cartoon/Live action hybrids. I watched Coonskin, which was fantastic I love Bakshi and it was a pretty funny Blaxsplotation film. I also watched The Wall, which was okay, but I think the better way to experience the music is through the album, the movie is missing tracks and has Final Cut stuff thrown into it.

Next thing I plan to watch is either Heavy Metal or Allegro no Troppo. I'm in the mood for more musical themed animated movies, Wall didn't have quite as much animation as I was expecting. I mean what it did have was great, but I want the whole thing to be animated. I've anyone has any movies similar that fit the bill please recommend them. I've seen Fantasia/Make Mine Music/ect all the Disney ones.

Currently I'm hyped for 'I lost my body' the concept looks cool, but I'm not so sure about the animation company. They've mostly done no name kids shows (shurkin school,zig and sharko, Floopaloo). the company is also trying out 3-D animation for the film, most of there work looks adobe flash-y.

I bet the film will be at least decent

There was backlash? I know there will be critics, but I mostly seen people liking the show. I think the only hype relating to it before release was if the show was in any way connected to Bojack.

No. 30898

Ehh I'm one of the people who doesn't like it. Besides the intentionally unlikable main character I just didn't find it engaging seemed to have lots of low-brow comedy. Personally as someone who struggles with depression I thought the main character was unrealistic and behaved more like a caricature of what someone has been told people behave like. Hearing it praised as a serious adult cartoon that tackles tough issues is frustrating.
I only watched through half of the first season though before I dropped it so take my opinion with a grain of salt. I've been told it gets better in later seasons but I haven't really wanted to continue.

Pergatony is good passable for a tv show you can watch online for free. The side characters are pretty funny, though the shows interpretation of death feels like a rip off of family guys version. The worst part of the show though is the main character. He's the embodiment of an incel (refuses to fix his problems and he hates his co-workers not because they're evil, but out of jealousy). The show would be a lot better is he never existed

How do people feel in general about more recent cartoons?
I'm constantly surrounded by jaded people who hate the more laidback and softer cartoons like craig of the creek, summer camp island, OK KO etc etc

I miss shows that were more slice of life but still had interesting settings that made you interested in seeing the characters face new challenges.

No. 39397

Honestly, I think a lot of kid's shows that are made now are also made with adults in mind because the creator is usually thinking of what they would like to watch/have watched as a kid. Of course, "kid's shows" in this context meaning those with a target audience of like 12-17 or something. Personally, I like all of the ones you mentioned plus Regular Show, Clarence, Over the Garden Wall, We Bare Bears, and The Amazing World of Gumball. I kind of prefer the cartoons that exist now over the ones I grew up with.

My only gripe i've ever had with it as a kid was just how disgusting it could be especially during later seasons. Im talking stomach churning. But it will always have a special place in my dead heart. Season 3 and onward it just got funnier and funnier which usually the opposite happens. It was also funny watching it as an adult and relating to grim and realizing just how shitty billy and especially mandy treated him for no reason lmfao!!

I seriously thought my high school would be like that not realizing they were rich af and from beverly hills lol. I tried rewatching it as an adult but honestly the first 3 seasons were perfect to me but the later seasons i feel like became increasingly more childish which was a shame because they were in college by that time.

Thank God. I've avoided it so far because I was afraid it would be shit and ruin all my nostalgic memories. I think I'll rewatch the series, then watch this. I just love Zim so much.

I was scared of the movie being shit at first because of the switched art styles (characters edges seemed to be smoothed out and the color palette for backgrounds was a bit off) and the fact I thought it would be a direct adoption of the comic (which I hated), but I came out decently surprised. The character interactions are still great and though Im not The biggest fan of zims humor I found it funny. The biggest flaw of the movie though imo, was its biggest strength (not much of a spoiler, but general plot structure) In the end it just felt like a really long invader zim episode. Nothing about the characters changed, nothing was resolved, and at the end of the movie everything just resets like its preparing for a new episode to start. If you're looking for a satisfying conclusion, stuff like zim finally winning/losing or Dib proving to his dad aliens are real, you might not like the movie Also the tallest ship is still really obvious CGI and the tallest felt kind of shoehorned in the movie to me

I know it's not really popular here, but did anyone catch the Steven Universe movie finale?
I didn't think it was too bad. It just lent a better closure than the series finale did. I started watching this show when I was in grad school, and back then it was just a wholesome break from stress.

I thought it was gearing up to be unrelatable juvenile again but I didn't expect that 6,000 year ghosted best friend story that hit way, way too close to home.

The animation was pretty good overall and Bismuth was there which is all what i wanted, Steg was cool af too.

No. 47758

God, she’s adorable and I feel bad for her. The movie was alright, I try not to think about it so much and I’m just glad we got an hour’s worth of on-model animation. I thought it was great when she punched Steven in the face and said you can’t sing everything better. I wish she went back to her old appearance because those big doe eyes and her space buns are too cute.

No. 47773

I thought it was great. There was way too many songs though and only like 3 of them were good. I had a laugh at the fans trying to act like the crewniverse was the one responsible for the Other Friends animation that's actually fluid and good. Turns out, the Japanese animator who helped out in the series before came back for the movie so it was most likely him since it matches his style.

I love Spinel so much tho. I actually kept saying "aw" at the end because I was so happy for her. She's so cute

No. 47890

I knew it. Isn’t it Yoh Yoshinari? I’m a big fan of his and I can spot his smoke/flame effects a mile away but I wasn’t sure about that part because Spinel is so 30’s rubberhose. There’s something about the way that segment was animated, if it wasn’t his work then they definitely got another specialist in because none of the usual team animate like that. Feels like they actual animated along key frames for once. I don’t think it’s the man who animated White Diamond and Steven dance fusing his two halves back together.

I get what they were going for in that sequence where Pearl gets her memories back, with the groovy sexy rock music and acid trip visuals, but that was executed pretty poorly. If I were a kid I’d be like "wtf is this where the fun" and lol no one can deny what it looks like: two lumpy fat dudes merge into a rockstar bara who’s ‘so cool’ he makes the lesbian starry eyed and shakes her whole world back together. He looks like he smells like sweat and hotdog water and they should have used that screentime for something else.

This is supposed to be a movie and yet there’s like three times where gems fuse and the silhouette is horribly tweened, not to mention Spinel’s gem turning upside down. Come on, if you care enough to want a Japanese animator to do your fight scenes couldn’t you pay consistent quality to those few frames which are the focus of the screen? This wouldn’t happen at all in a better production.

No. 48364

It’s actually not obnoxiously tumblry but it’s a mediocre show at best, why suffer through it for the ‘good parts’ when you can watch a show of consistently higher quality? Imo most of it is filler and the pacing to get to the plot important parts is frustrating, plus they can never decide how serious they’re being and how much of the comedy is straight slap stick or self aware. No villain is ever really a threat, they all get talked out of being bad because ‘they’re just sad and hurting!’ and the show even acknowledges this as a "joke" but still does it anyway. Imagine a show that wants to poke fun at the power of love and friendship but they also want to do it completely straight? I’m salty 3 out of 4 Diamonds have ugly sausage lips when they would look more appropriately goddess like with some mature lipstick.

No. 48385

Just watch the plot-heavy episodes you won't miss anything important if you completely ignore the filler, is not really tumblr-tier (to the point actual sjw's hate SU because it's representation it's mediocre) but brace yourself for shameless favoritism and blatant self-inserting from some of the writers including the creator of the series herself, you should avoid filler especially because there are literal prank episodes that bamboozle people into thinking something cool will happen because the titles of those episodes are misleading.

>but brace yourself for shameless favoritism and blatant self-inserting from some of the writers including the creator of the series herself

Nepotism on western cartoons is insane right now, i am personally very tired of how it is always the same little group of creators blowing each other horns or how it turns out they are all dating or longtime friends or related. All the teams are inbred, their affiliations and shilling are blatant. I wish there was more variety and openness towards more diversity of talent, styles and ideas but a lot of the sjw bigotry that keeps new influences out comes from within the industry, fueled by those same creators that got too influential and turned these companies into shut tight cocoons. I used to like Rebecca Sugar, by now i am so sick of her, i wish she were replaced, her stuff gets cringier and cringier.

The cal arts meme is a bit misguided because not all of them went to cal arts and the idiosincratic style is not really a thing from the school but from a social clique that is employed right now, but it is still kinda valid as an umbrella term for all this seemingly samey cartoons made by pretty much the same branches of people.

Tbh I always got that vibe from them. In the commentary they've done on Invader Zim episodes, they do come off a bit strange.
I can't necessarily blame them though since I've heard of them having very strange experiences with nutty Invader Zim fans. Like, one of them talked about how when he was signing an autograph for a fan and the fan then proceeded to bite his hand. Hell, even Jhonen used to get sexually harassed at panels because his fans are fucking nuts.

I have to agree.
Glad I wasn't the only one noticing a pattern in the credits of some cartoons.

I regularly check in with Natasha Allegri’s insta cause I like seeing any Bee and Puppycat updates (cause it’s the only place for any indication the damn show is still being made) - and I felt a bit miffed with this. The trailer was released over a year ago, saying it was vaguely returning in 2019. I wouldn’t even mind the pushbacks if she kept her fans informed of the process without regular prompting (which she usually ignores anyway) You would think after the previous Kickstarter and VRV backlash there would be more care put into these things, but nah. Bee and Puupycat is cute, but it’s kinda beyond me how it’s managed to keep a dedicated fan base all these years of waiting and frustration.

No. 59251

Bee and Puppycat is nothing but a big fat scam for a shitty story that barely makes any sense. Like cmon you've seen the animation.

Most of the fans are from her tumblr era I think, and since she worked on fuckin "Adventure Time" and said 'anime is cool' most just still worship her for that alone.

I did, it's great show, however it ended on cliffhanger.

I avoid watching it because they changed the character designs and the visual style in general. Original Invader Zim had more squarish look and darker colors, this new version looks like an attempt to make it more Calarts style friendly.

Clone High aired on MTV if iirc so it's aimed at older teens. It's one of the best western cartoons imo, the humor poking fun at popular teen angst shows of the time (like Dawson's Creek)

It ended on a cliff hanger and it was canceled I believe do to the fact that Gandhi was a character on the show (the best character) and a Hindu group protested against the show because of how they depicted him.

As someone who really enjoyed the original series, I think it sucks. It's fun to see the new gems and revisit old gems (though my jaspy deserved a whole redemption arch, not an damn half episode) but the main problem is how Steven is now (and even how he was in the movie).

He comes off more as a jerk than he does an angsty teen. And what was the point of showing the abuse Pink Diamond went through, and Steven himself even experiencing, if we're going back to Pink being the cruelest, worst character on the show? If anyone can sympathise with her it should be Steven, but now they've just walked back all of that progress with her character in a single episode (meeting Pink Pearl.)

Imo SU Future was a mistake.

No. 72761

I hate the art, but beyond that I don't think it's that bad. I wish people would just ignore it instead of giving it negative attention.

I dislike what the show represents more than the show itself. Hell, I dislike what the original Thundercats represented, too. Obviously selling toys is an important part of animated shows, but that doesn't mean they should be such transparent toy commercials.

I feel like stuff like this underestimates kids' intelligence. Stuff doesn't have to be stupid and ugly in order for kids to enjoy it and buy toys of it. As much as I loathe MLP:FiM's adult fanbase, it's a really good example of a show caring more about being interesting than selling toys (despite to that being its purpose.) Same goes for the new DuckTales. You can tell the people working on these shows really wanted to make something enriching and clever for kids to watch. I don't sense the same amount of dedication when it comes to all the reboots on Cartoon Network.

The autistic hatred for TTG in particular has gotten out of hand. I think the writing of the show has improved, and I think the inclusion of other DC characters was an interesting choice. Frankly I'm just glad this only happened to Teen Titans and not something I actually care about, like Young Avengers. Thank Christ I don't live in the "Young Avengers Go" timeline.

No. 111174

Hazbin Hotel sucks but honestly, I'm glad that it got picked up. If major producers picking up independent onine animations becomes a trend, I would love to see it. I'd rather have something unusual for Western cartoons like Hazbin Hotel become a full animated series than see regurgitated safe series from decades-old IPs, like Thundercats Roar and TTG.

But then why couldn't Hellava Boss been the one to be picked up.It's far better in terms of plot and characterization most likely due to the fact it's not her pet project.

It may sound like if I'm overreacting, but this is by far the worst adult cartoon I have ever seen.

It looks ugly as hell, it's not funny or clever, the characters are annoying, it has "Oh so clever, Pepe Trump lol!" Level of jokes.

I can't even tell if the people behind it had any sort of respect or love towards the anime they reference so much, it's the same feeling I have when CN shows have anime references, they just show either the Akira bike slide or an Evangelion poster but they present it like if it's the most amazing joke ever. Not a work of appretiation for the referenced thing but rather to say ~Hello fellow weebs~ because that worked on Steven Universe.

This is just a Panty and Stoking ripoff minus the fun, unique style or anything that made that show actually good and instead there's only bottom of the barrel woke-ness that just 2-3 twitter-fags will give a crap about in a few months.

I wanted to enjoy the story but it offers me so little. The visuals are definitely the worst part for me. I don’t exactly hate them, but characters are unlikable and the animation doesn’t help. It’s the lack of cohesion, it’s very annoying.
The presentation, the hehe so random funny corporate attorney. If 6teen’s humor and overall pace was mixed with a mahou shoujo Totally Spies and Mission Hill’s young adult woes but none of it was funny and it looked worse than something posted on newgrounds, this would be it.

The jokes entirely fell flat, like writers we get it the tomboy is a lesbian she doesn't need to scissor the air every five seconds. Why is the black one dressed like it's her first day at kindergarten. If you're going to make fun of Kill la Kill after you ripped off their transformation outfits try and not make the same meta jokes about the designs the anime did so much better? But the worse for me is just how braindead the writers are. The lesbian's transformation wand is her bong, they fight a weed monster. So conclusion is she smokes it right?

Well it's created by the real brains behind ATLA Aaron Ehaz so there's good lore building and the episodes flow into one another. Relationships are put together well family relations before romantic and there is some LGBT representation with a lesbian/gay couple, but it's not thrown in your face screaming how gay they are the way other western cartoons will. It's like Sailor Moon just they are same sex and in love not the point of their inclusion to the story. The main villain's VA is Koh the Face Stealer so his voice is just top tier shit.

I know this seems somewhat specific, but are there any good cartoons/comics (anything really) revolving around gangs/cliques and their hijinks with other gangs, but in a light-hearted way? making sorta like the cliques in bully or the gangs in the first half of a west side story

Just a personal nitpick but it bothers me how their off-white fur stands out more next to their shiny white gloves. Looks weird.

Any other anons watching Primal? I normally shy away from animal violence in any medium being too much of a soft hearted bitch. But I'm so invested in these two and how they push through their respective loss.

Then staying up all night to fend off wild dog types looking for an easy meal It's just so endearing in a weird savage way.

No. 113598

I watched through the first season, seen some clips of the second. I actually like the slower moments with Fang and Spear as opposed to the fast action and gore. You gotta suspend your disbelief for a lot of the action (I mean, it's a story about cavemen and dinosaurs living in the same timeline) Sometimes the fight scenes happen so fast it feels like the dinos/monsters are made of clay. Also season two seems to be taking a supernatural direction, maybe that explains all then weird creatures inhabiting the same world together?

Oh for sure their bond is what keeps me invested. Fang is what keeps Spear going and vice versa it's just the best.

It's lacking the dry humor that Castlevania had. Protagonist is boring, should have been a cooler character if they're gonna make up a new character that isn't actually from any Greek myth. Heron is an incredibly plain character which is the main factor for me. I wish they went for some kinda wizard or a female protag to spice it up. Muscular male greek hero is a tired trope. I'll be watching the whole season to see if it gets good but so far (~ ep 4 I think) it's very, very mediocre.

I remember that fart scene and yes it was absolutely unnecessary and felt fetishy. Didn't land well with me because it was passed as "haha childish joke" while it clearly dwelled in fart fetish territory, kek. The jokes in TDP are pretty hit or miss in general

Speaking of fetishy I recommend Wakfu, it's my fav western anime after ATLA. I don't know if the humour translates well in english though. I find the the sexualization (men as well as women) to be endearing in a weird way?

I ended up binge watching this last night and I absolutely loved it. Holy shit the rugged, brutal combat, the wordless character development, the eerie evil spirit cult shenanigans. I loved how they ramped things up from basic survival to crazier and crazier scenarios and enemies. Also really hype for the 2nd season where Fang and Spear will clearly be extending outside of their known world. Everything was visually stunning too, it was like a pulp comic come to life. Damn.

I actually chuckled at some of the live action jokes fore some reason. Looking back I would have preferred a full R-rated movie just dedicated to Micheal, his wife, and the hotel scammer instead of a movie were they split attention between them and jerry.

I hate how adult animation in the west doesn't utilize being for adults in the same way anime does. It annoys me to no end because anime is such a low fuckin bar and I've seen western cartoons for kids that I've enjoyed more than anime. Sadly it's made for kids so censorship takes hold. You'd think that by now adult animation in the west would have taken the opportunity to change and break out of the "Everything has to be comedy" and "Everything has to be an animated sitcom" tropes with the emerging love for Animation among adults here in the west. Nope. Instead we keep getting the same stale shit an I'm sick of gratuitous violence played as a joke to show the network "See? This isn't for kids". Why can't we just have violence when the scene calls for it. I love Bojack horseman but even that show hid behind a veil of "funny haha animal people" before it picked up story wise. I'm sorry for ranting but it disappoints me so much and nobody gets it!

Technically this isn't western but idk where else to post this, but I'm kinda salty at Emara.

The show was defenitely not a masterpiece and it was beyond cheesy at times but I found it a nice short series to watch with my brain on off mode, but it's been almost 3 years and there's no updates anywhere. They actually announced a season two but they haven't updated in years.

The real thing that makes me salty is that the creator of the show made a tweet bragging about how she made the whole show just out of spite for one of her teachers (apparently her twitter was suspended a few days ago tho, she has a very sassy type of personality maybe she got in trouble for that). If she really just made it out of spite I get the feeling she didn't actually 100% feel it and won't pick it up again.

More of the good - excellent animation. More of the bad - too much over the top gore all the damn time, and too many characters sounding the same and ruining dramatic scenes with "edgy" american swearing.

To continue, now that they're going to adapt more of the Castlevania games it's such a relief that Ellis is gone. For many reasons. If you read the stories from somanyofus.com there is a theme of him wanting to manipulate mentally ill young women with pale skin, red/brown hair and a goth look. He also appears to be turned on by suicidal women and a woman whose boyfriend comitted suicide. This makes watching Netflix CV even more disturbing in hindsight. Lenore looks like that, and the manipulation of Hector is a mirror to what Ellis has been doing doing. Lenore then commits suicide, and so does the other female villain Carmilla. HMM

Bit late to the party, but I finished S4 and I'm so freaking happy that Isaac survived! I really thought they were setting him up to be the big bad by resurrecting Dracula, but I'm overjoyed he had a change of heart and basically decided to become Demon Dad. He deserves some peace after all he's been through. Actually got more happy endings than I expected overall, which was great. Although I miss Carmilla. The action scenes were amazing yet again, and I'm dense since there was foreshadowing, but I was so caught up in things that I didn't realize they were going to make Death the main antagonist. That was cool. I agree there was a weird amount of swearing in serious scenes, to the point it was distracting when I just wanted to appreciate what was happening. I like the gore though. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's been consistent from the start and it's just a mood. Extreme gore can feel cathartic and it puts me in the mind of stuff like Mortal Kombat and just having an action-y, exciting time.

I don't know why some people take issue with this scene, it's not out of character for Sypha. And I don't see it as degrading to her. She has a single moment of feeling overwhelmed and like she's losing herself. Yes, it's an overreaction, but she works past it and is back to business the rest of the show. I actually think it's nice when characters aren't portrayed as perfect and infallible all the time. Lord knows Trevor makes an ass out of himself regularly, why can't she have a moment?

I didn't know about all the abuse surrounding Ellis, shit. Can any scrote manage to not abuse, assault or harass women? Any of them? Christ. Here's to hoping he never gets work again and that they bring the show back with someone far better.

Honestly as someone who played the games and a major fan of castlevania series way before the show even existed Im not impressed at all. The 1st season is really all I cared about but it went down hill after. >>141843 is right and I completely agree with you. I also hate Alucard's ending because he's supposed to go take his 300 year long nap and putting him with greta seemed so forced. I hate how they made him out to be some pathetic little bitch who needs an annoying character like greta to fuck some sense into him and dont even get me started on the " It was my idea" scene. Everything was utterly juvenile and honestly was a huge flop and disgrace that tarnished the castlevania name and shouldve been given to an actual japanese studio to make instead. Not to mention the castlevania subreddit is now filled with dumb discussion about the show and shouldve had its own subreddit so that it didnt over shadow the more interesting threads about the video games. I will never forgive Netflix for this atrocity.

I understand disliking the cheesy scenes with Greta, I agree they could've been handled better, but let's face it some characters were massively improved. Sypha basically had zero personality in Castlevania 3 and when they brought her back she was a psychotic zealot who hunted down anyone with dark powers even if they weren't using them for evil. She also looked like picrel. I don't need more big titty anime girls with absurd outfits complete with flashy battle heels. They actually made Sypha into a (pretty cool and relatable) human in this series and I have zero trust that a Japanese studio wouldn't have just made her into the typical "holy maiden uwu" type or else the stoic humorless cool girl with no personality. I was happy to see Alucard get a nice resolution where he wasn't isolating yet again, his whole arc was that he struggled to reconcile his human/vampire sides and craved love since he lost his parents and anyone who got close to him. I appreciated that the show humanized the characters and actually took time to explore them rather than hyperfocusing on following the pre-existing story to a t.

It was a mix of good and bad.

I think his design is hot, but that's totally down to preference. I can appreciate you liking pretty guys! I'm conflicted about his personality, because I do want to punch him 90% of the time, but he and Sypha make great foils and if he was as straightforwardly heroic as he was in the games she'd have less opportunity to grow and shine. She really ended up coming across as the lead this season for me, even though Trevor gets the glory of the final fight.

Well obviously when recreating things for a show there will be different changes to fit the layout but missing important things like Genderbending Grant, making hector stay with lenore instead of going to find his human, also making carmilla a traitor to dracula is kinda like salt on a wound. In all honestly it shouldve been a movie more so than a series the writers seemed to struggle with creating actual good content over a string than if it was just a one a done thing. It couldve ended up like Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust. And the whole "finally giving certain characters a personality" argument is invalid unless you consider sarcastic, edgy, cussing, and ill-placed sassiness good then to each their own. Isacc was the only good character and while his redesign was weird virtue signaling it only goes to show that allowing a disgusting fuck like warren ellis to make a show based on a game that he hasnt even played himself was a stupid decision. Talk about a waste of potential.

Same! I was floored when I heard that Netflix declined to renew it for a second season after that emotional reveal of the Jelly Lake episode. I'm not a big fan of some of the absurdist comedy or the in-your-face metaphors at times (like Bertie's boob leaving or her turning into a giant house) but the contrast between silly, likable characters and the real, heartfelt conflict is just as good (if not better at times) than Bojack.
So happy that they're ending the first episode with a hint at this season's conflict.

I couldn't stand the over the top quirky humor/symbolicism and dropped the show after the 1st episode. I wanted to give it another chance eventually, but I don't think I'm gonna.

Yeah, I'm a weird place wrt Tuca and Bertie. I'm happy it exists and I don't want to punish it for expectations I put on it on my own – like, it has never put itself out there as Bojack-y, it just shares Lisa Hanawalt. But the super wacky stuff is like…it's fine, but when I think about the shit I remember from the first season, it's all the serious moments. And those are SO good – that moment where Bertie is watching the teenage girls play happily and tells Tuca she wishes she could protect them is such a real thing, so well captured.

So I don't want to punish it for not being Bojack, but I really do think the best moments have been when it's just been really real…kinda like Bojack is. And it'd be amazing to see a show approach the kind of stuff that fucks women up as seriously as Bojack portrayed its shit.

I think what I wish is that Tuca and Bertie were more like the Diane and Princess Carolyn parts of Bojack. Like, the episode where PC is going insane with her baby daughter has strings of goofy wordplay and lots of jokes about Hollywood, but it also portrays how terrified she is of ending up like the lady who lost her career for taking a tiny maternity leave. It's still a comedy, but still…well, a dramedy, lol.

I agree somewhat with >>150291
The humor in Tuca and Bertie isn't that strong, but the emotional moments always hit. I'm sure no one wants Tuca to become a self-hating alcoholic like Bojack, they just enjoy the more human moments most, because that's what these writers excel at. We've already had really effective moments like Tuca seeing the homeless Tucan and feeling worried/lonely, and I'm sure you agree that was an effective moment. Episodes like Nighttime Friend will always outshine Bird Mechanics (although the ending of that episode was a great Chekhov's gun.) I'm worried that because the audience for Adult Swim is largely male that it won't get renewed for a third season, but fingers crossed I'm just dooming. This is the only adult cartoon aimed at female adults I know, and I really appreciate finally having something like this that's targeted at our demographic. Hopefully, it's successful so we get more like it.

What? This looks so cheap with its janky movements, dead eyed characters and permagaping mouths.

Nobody asked for this and nobody wanted this, the money that went into this is a waste and truly seems to be the pinnacle of nepotism in the animation industry.

I have a question regarding Castlevania's judge, because I swear people are starting to gaslight me into thinking I'm a complete degenerate.
Do we all agree that he was obviously jerking off to kiddie shoes in his secret room? I'm asking because I saw a good amount of people being confused about why I and others called him a pedo; they think judge killed children only because he hated disorder and mayhem in his town, while there's obviously a not so hidden sexual motive behind it. People don't seem to realize that during the scene when we see him exit his kiddie-shoes-dungeon all sweaty and out of breath, the thing that he wipes off of his hand is supposed to be cum, not sweat. also I love his charadesign so much. A shame he turned out to be this way

Supporting a flatlining show like this just out of spite to to "own the anti-SJWs" is an absolutely retarded hill to die on.

It's their own fault for getting all the goobergoot TiA faggots riled up because they kept advertising it with its "LGBTQ++ staff" to rely on controversy points instead of talking about the show itself and hyping it up, which can only point to the fact that it's subpar and has nothing of substance to offer.

Have any of you checked out Amphibia?

It's about this magic music box that warps three girls to a land of amphibians. I snubbed it at first because it reminded me of Big City Greens but I watched it again and it is surprisingly good. The first couple of episodes in S1 are a little meh but it picks up big time. The writing, attention to detail, the characters are pretty great. The three girls have a perfect blend of feminine and masculine traits which is kind of a treat because typically you'd have the girly-girl character and the tomboy character so I'm glad they subverted that. The plot is pretty solid and interesting and plot twists make sense and don't come out of left field to outsmart the audience cough cough Steven Universe cough cough
There was this new blue haired girl in the S3 trailer and I'm worried they'll make her nb or add some dumb kweerio zoomer pandering as that seems to be the trend nowadays

Has anyone else watched MTV Downtown? Although I found it fun, I felt it was a little scrotey. Jen is a little bit of a pickme, and I don't think the show really addressed Alex's crush on Serena as nothing but him being horny . Serena deserves better. Serena also feels like a man wrote her, she has a weird line about her 'being straight but liking boobs' and okay with looking at porn of women in public, which gives off very 'unicorn willing to have a kinky threesome with you uwu', rather than a regular goth girl that Alex was projecting as being a manic pixie dream girl.

So Centaurworld

I didn't think there's even been a series that I have had more mixed feelings on

I get what they were trying to go for, it tried to mix dark themes with cutesy cartoony visuals and it definitely felt ambitious, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. Story-wise, similar to Amphibia, it made the mistake of prioritizing characters that, while entertaining, served little purpose other than support and comic relief while most of the characters that had central parts in the main conflict had little to no screentime. It makes it hard to invest in the dramatic beats in the story when little time is spent to really develop them. The general, for instance, was barely in the show before that twist with him was revealed, so it had little impact. I don't know if it's because they were short on time or poor pacing on the creator's part.

Songs were good, but other then a couple of them I don't see myself going back to hear them anytime soon
The humor was also hit-or-miss. Definitely not fond of all the fart jokes or the drag race references

I however did not expect them to actually kill Elktaur/nowhere king at the end especially after getting his backstory, I just expected them to have them fuse back together at boom instant redemption

One reason you won't get much adult animation is because anime has already filled that void. An adult animated TV show would have to compete with both live-action series and anime. Nobody's willing to invest into that, if they could reap profits from making an all-ages animated show aimed at children (or manchildren) instead. Perhaps you could get an adult-aimed ONA or two from Netflix, if they are tied to a well-know property (Castlevania, The Witcher) and serve as an advertisement more than its own thing.
