The hype for this show is killing me. Opening: //youtube.com/watch?v=kDoWhMt2_gs Ending: //youtube.com/watch?v=2JarGnjpjYM The hype threads are already full of shiposters and contrarians. The only worthwhile thought at the moment is that Star is Disney's answer to Steven Universe but we still have to wait to see the comparasion.
I have some concerns that it may try to add a bit of that Disney brand of teenybopper corniness, but that's probably just how Disney channel advertises their shit coupled with my paranoia from so many bad 00's shows and their horrific live action shows. I had the same worries with Gravity Falls and that turned out great so I'm probably worried over nothing.
>>232571 >>232572 Pretty good show. Thanks for the links. So far it doesn't seem as great as others were potentially hyping it up to be, I guess. Nothing super hilarious either, but definitely not bad in any way.
Oh, this show started last night? I didn't realize it was this soon, I must have confused it with something else and thought it aired in February. Guess I'm grabbing the 1080p version just because I saw the link for it first and already have it open.
extremely meh so far, especially after such blind and forced hype for month. It looks nothing special. Nobody has a really interesting personality. Gags are pretty mediocre. Lots of "in your face" stuff like saying "turds". The only positive so far is that it does a few slapstick to the girl characters, which is rare.
The animation is so full of personality and energy - especially considering its flash! Definitely one of the better uses of the tool. I'd say its debatably the best in the US so far. I'm not HUGE on how fast paced or loud it gets, but I'm definitely gonna keep an eye on this one.
>>234468 From what I've heard the creator plans to have an overarching story, but at this stage it's setting up the foundation of the setting. The teacher was turned into a troll and still is one in later episodes, so there's continuity, if albeit a little.
So after what happened to Star, I'm thinking a good number of monsters Star faces, like >>232545 and probably the ones working for Olga, might in fact be formerly more human-like people who handled a sensitive time of their lives very poorly and wound up permanently mutating.
>>236451 Mewberty/Pixtopia was animated by Toon City and the episodes before that were Mercury Filmwork, but that doesn't mean Toon City are doing every episode from now on. It's quite common for a show to have a couple different studios working on it simultaneously.
I'm kinda wondering how long it would have taken them to actually mine enough shards to pay off the bill, just since I honestly was expecting it to be a ridiculously short amount of time for them to go and skip out on it.
>>236570 >Star turns into a monster and might have stayed that way if she didn't make out with some idiot keytaurist. >Two episodes later she tells a monster to go back to living with her enemies as if it's some kind of natural order. I like this, it's consistent for Star to not immediately realize what's wrong. It's also cute how the laser puppies learned to tone down their beams for little love-lasers.
>>237140 Well, she is Disney, XD cartoons being treated as their own universe notwithstanding. Though I think given the nature of the keys as implements of dimensional travel, I'd think the scissors would be a more appropriate choice. Plus, the wand changing appearance to match the user makes it an odd choice for a keyblade, which needs a distinct style to separate it from the others.
I figured Star would be a stereotypical "crazy" girl, but I was not expecting her to be quite so... chaotic evil? I mean I'm looking at this body count she's racking up. It's not good. Those devil horns on her hairband are not just for show.
>>237299 Yeah, Star can be very reckless and impulsive, but she hasn't really been trying to kill people. I mean aside form the football incident, and that was just her lack of understanding making her think she needed to defend the school. She's learning, though, and I think Marco's doing a better job of teaching her than St. Olga's Reform School would. On the other hand, that is based on my suspicion that St. Olga's going to be revealed as a major villain once Ludo starts being overshadowed.

I'm not entirely certain this is the episode where things properly kick into gear, but if not than considerably soon, which means I'll be able to talk about it more with the people who are really into things with plot that I hang out with on IRC.
>>236642 >Actually, rewatching them I've noticed how crazy quiet they are. Hardly any background music. It's very disjointing. It's not just music, there's a bizarre lack of ambient sound effects as well. It's like whoever is in charge of sound doesn't do anything that's not specified in the script, leaving huge stretches of dead air everywhere.
>>417720 This is wrong in several ways. - moose is still the owner, I just keep the place functional. - I do it because I'm a regular on the site, not because I need your info. - even if I wanted your info, there's nothing in the DB I could use. The only data in there, in a meaningful volume, is key-encrypted IP numbers. - I don't WANT your info. The only thing the site needs, for moderation, is IP adresses (technically it could function without that too, but moderating would be harder. - we don't have anyone archiving us in real time (like desuarchive), so technically you have slightly larger anonimity here than on other sites. This is offset by the fact that we don't purge old posts, so if you posted some stupid shit two years ago, the post remains there today, but you don't have a search page to look it up. - I'd in fact like it more if we introduced thread purging (old posts being "forgotten" is what made imageboards truly anonymous in the long run), but we don't have the post rate for that. But hey, make the site as active as 4chan's /b/ was twelve years ago, and I'll be willing to make the place as anonymous as technically possible.
The thread is pretty dead I can't argue with that. What is the latest episode? I saw it up until the spade cheek lady got the magic wand back and ran away with her de-aged monster daughter, to hook up with her old husband. Has there been anything new since?
>>418035 That's pretty much the last episode, yes. I honestly only watch the show for anthros now. The whole anti-establishments "kids are always right, adults are stupid" message is so transparent, I wonder if some Che Guevara-T-shirt-wearing idealist communist kid is writing this shit. And only the plot-moving episodes are worth anything, but those are few and far between a lot of teen romance nonsense.
>>418054 >What data can he collect all the private things i admit under the veil of anonymity (ie. data posted on the website), all the deviant threads i have browsed and commented in (access requests) and my obsessive favourite interests (by processing that data), all linked back to an IP which, if processed by a large collector of data such as Google (note: reCAPTCHA creators) or a popular tracker service, can be linked to my other online accounts and likely to my person.
basically any party the data is sold to (not likely to be parties worthy of trust) could blackmail a lot of people, and that's not even considering if they get hacked so someone else can do it. also, that data is used for targeted ads.
>I change that every week. Browser fingerprinting almost certainly makes you unique and therefore traceable regardless of IP address. >https://amiunique.org/
>>418056 If that worked, I'd be swamped with furry porn and dragon dildo ads... Which I ain't... Plus, unless you are some politician or CEO, not much to worry about blackmailing since it would not be worth it. >>418058 The only Hiro I know is that time-stopping guy on Heroes... and what Google recaptchas? I have never had to fill in any captchas on this site, ever.
>>418081 >The only Hiro I know is that time-stopping guy on Heroes... and what Google recaptchas? I have never had to fill in any captchas on this site, ever.
Hiro is the guy who moot sold 4chan to, and he's been steadily making the site more unbrowsable. The recaptchas on 4chan are partially Google's fault since they killed their old, text based recaptcha in favour of the mobile crap, but hiro could have implemented 8chs own recaptchas - he doesn't.
>>418081 >not much to worry about blackmailing since it would not be worth it There is still a chance I might be a blackmail target due to career path. Hopefully not, but I like to be cautious. I'm almost enjoying my paranoia! Plus an automated blackmail program similar to ransomware may be feasible in the future. You're right though, it's not really an immediate concern. >I have never had to fill in any captchas on this site, ever. And that's why I love this site. Autonymous (our admin) realised that they weren't the solution to our spam problems, but on loads of more popular sites they make captcha compulsory to prevent bot spam. Unfortunately the majority of sites just use Google's version for convenience and assurance.
(I'm glad to continue but it may derail the thread. Maybe reply in >>>/baw/415307 ?)
>>420489 Lol explains why I grew to hate the show. Its message was so obviously forced. Why is it that it seems in america, only liberals get to make such propaganda toons? They own all the media? I have yet to see a toon with a similarly forced conservative message .>>420488 Whom did she genocide? The mewmin aka her own people, in her grreat white guilt, 'cause oh poor oppressed monsters and stuff?
>>420524 She unmade Magic, so everything that relied on magic in all dimensions died. And the only part of it she was upset by was when it seemed like it would mean her and her boytoy wouldn't be together anymore, but thanks to plot fiat her homeland and Earth were merged and a bunch of violent monsters are now dropped ontop of humanity.
The moral of the story is- The only way to stop a genocide is with a greater genocide.
