Really I think its not some gag. Heck we've got that cast photo so for this all to be a sham would be some bad play. Would show that this is the best time to be at Cartoon Network as the Animation Department seems to be rising back from its near deathblow back on '10.

Spend 2015-16 on that, then you can do a between 2 and 3 season for 2017-18 and finish it off just in time for the movie.

That actually sounds really good. Its like the opening sequence on Madagascar 3. Superb slapstick and chase scenes, absolutely hilarious stuff and the whole theater, including myself, was laughing its ass off. Mostly teenagers too.

But then the story happened and that was all left behind and it kinda fell from there.

I mean, I took that as the number one indicator that no, not all movies should try to be pixar.

Neat.
Anyways, as fun as penguins was, I'm kind of glad the recent shakeup at dreamworks (and probably also that penguins did really poorly) put Madagascar 4 on the back burner for now.
The character arc for the four main characters is nicely concluded in 3, plus I never hear anyone say those guys are the series' strong point anyway.
Clearly this is a franchise that performs better on the small screen .

It'll probably be the same set up of chase the man down through various places to get him to take something he doesn't want. They'll just expand on the sets and activities involved. Sprinkle in some characters that don't really fit in the Seus world. A couple awkward pop culture references. And generally forget about the base premise of the tale as a whole.

If it follows the patten of adaptation that is.

Hulu now has a slew of Cartoon Network/Adult Swim shows. Not everything--no Ed, Edd, and Eddy or Powerpuff Girls, but they have Dexter and Samurai Jack, for instance--but a good deal, including shows I haven't seen but would like to.

Unfortunately, they are all behind a Hulu Plus subscription, and I refuse to pay for something and still have to watch commercials. Oh well. I wish Hulu would do an ad-free sub; even if it was $10 or $15/mo, I would jump on it in a heartbeat.

>but a general dislike of protagonists for being assholes

Asshole protagonists are great when done right. The three shows I listed are far from getting it right. All three of those characters are just generic personalities only a 90s TV executive high off of Sonic the Hedgehog could love. And Spectacular Spider-Man is a prime example of Spider-Man acting like a jerk, while dealing with the stress of Spider-Man, all while making him a compelling main character to watch. Where as USM (from the first season I watched) is Peter believing he's better than everyone and being an ass for the sake of being an ass.

It's a legitimate complaint, considering Man of Action's big shows all feature unlikable heroes. So I'm not looking forward to Mega Man being Ben 2.0.

Of course, I have other problems with Man of Action besides bad characters. Ben 10 was full of bland character designs and forgettable stories. There was more discussion of the incestious undertones in the first series, than anything that actually happened on the show.

Fair enough. Although, I am always willing to listen to any opposing side.

I was probably the most supportive of USM during its first season, back when the show was getting hated by the internet 24/7, before it was forgotten. But even at its best moments, the show still had severe problems, with an inconsistent tone and a Peter Parker that didn't act like Peter Parker.

I would have be more forgiving of the show if it wasn't trying so hard to be funny and failing--I don't know if it's the directing, storyboarding, or what, but I can't think of any other cartoon with so many potentially-decent jokes ruined by terrible comedic timing.

The humor gets toned down a LOT in later seasons. I agree that the droids aren't very funny but their "humor" isn't nearly so prevalent after. The first season is just a cartoon, but from 2 on it becomes more of an old pulp action serial.

It could also be one of those things where the studio's contract for the property stipulates that they must do something with it by a certain date, or they lose the rights to the property. The deadline draws near, for some reason they want to keep it, so they make some super-cheap teeny movie, slap the Jem label on it, and they keep the license.

And just like TTG, the staff proceed to shoot themselves in the foot by mocking their fans.

So let's recap. None of the original creators. None of the original writers. None of the original PPG voices, even though EVERYONE ELSE is onboard, the voice of Buttercup made a tumblr-level third-wave feminist video that I'm sure even plus4 would find outright disgusting, one of the main writers, Haley Mancini, wants superheroes to be gender-segregated. Which is most likely going to mean no female villains and the series will be totally aimed towards girls instead of...nobody specific, and one of the lead fucking storyboard animators posts this on her twitter. And to top it off, both Craig McCracken and Lauren Faust, and the original PPG actresses have slammed CN openly for this.

I have never seen a show go to hell that fast within 24 hours of announcement.

Long thought that little boys determined what a household of kids watched, shows based on girl topics were never made. However that's all changed. Since The Powerpuff Girls has become a hit every channel is scrounging around for their own "girl show." However Bob Bryant says, "It's the combination of superheroes and little girls that attaches the boy audience."

I don't get most of the complaints about third wave feminism outside of the tucutes and queer fetishists, because most of the really obnoxious radfems these days have more in common with the excesses of the second wave (political lesbianism, transphobia, and open misandry in extreme cases, debates about porn, rape culture, objectification and sex positivity/negativity, gender roles, etc.). The only thing these people tend to have in common with the third wave is the age.

For better or for worse the third wave is more focused on expanding feminism beyond the boundaries of straight white middle-class Western folks. On a good day they're doing the kinds of things antifeminists bitch at second wavers about, like helping to outlaw FGM or child marriage in the Middle East, or forming support networks in immigrant communities. And on those bad days most of the really jackass things third wavers do or say (which is still a lot), like calling for organized violence against white people or downplaying POC-on-POC atrocities, fanatical word policing, romanticizing mental disorders, or attacking prosthetics and cochlear implants for being ableist, aren't even feminism-related.

Fair Use is a defense, not a right. It doesn't really come into play unless you're already in court defending yourself against claims of copyright infringement. Most people who get accused of copyright infringement never take it to court because you have to pay lawyers to go to court, and the companies attempting to silence you can afford that shit a lot more than you can. They just roll over and accept whatever the companies tell them so they don't have to pay lawyers' fees, even when they're in the right legally.

Quite a large number of projects have been shut down that could easily have passed the Fair Use defense if they had gone to court. But it's not worth the cost or the effort for most amateurs to defend themselves when big businesses start bullying them.

I have at least. 2 seasons, ova and the movie. All I'm going going to say is K-On, and my that extension neither is moe, is not for everyone. I don't love K-On, but it's probably the 2nd or 3rd best series kyoani has done. I didn't want to make this 2nd post because this /co/ and not /jam/, and I kinda dislike off-topic discussion.

In other news, I saw the Ladybug preview. The move to cgi away from basically precure might be cool and I'm curious what changed in the switch. //youtube.com/watch?v=rxU-Ps-TRIEyoutube thumb

If this series becomes a hit in our side, Toei will consider doing a version of it in their traditional animation style.
I'll be waiting for the glorious Precure and SHT crossover.

I'm interested in why they made the protagonist half-Chinese, as there aren't a whole lot of Chinese people in France (less than 1%, though still more than most European countries). For diversity reasons? Because it's unusual? Wanting an Asian protagonist because of the collaboration with Toei? Either way it's pretty cool to see one as the full-on lead in Western stuff.

I liked Dragons Race to the Edge.
I realize now why they did 13 episodes instead of 5, since it's the first show to not be as episodic, to the point of having multi-parters.
But if they are just going to spread the same amount of episodes among the same amount of time, that means the next set isn't due out for another 6 months instead of 4, and that's kind of a bummer.

I only watched 5 minutes of the show, and thought it was too "radical", and had too much "attitude". I thought it was too dated and unmemorable to get a reboot with all the other kool kidz.

But reality had proven me wrong some times, like recently with some of Greenland's border ice slowly returning despite "global warming being unstoppable". I think it's possible to get a good reboot out of something meh.

The second season's better than the first—darker tone, better animation/art style, and a little less of the shitty “radical” dialogue that was likely a network edict. The Tremblays have full control of the property now, so they can do whatever the fuck they want this time around. (They'll probably still shoot for a TV-PG-ish show and all, but at least they get to make that call themselves.)

>>237420
It's not really the “filling in” thing that’s important. When you’re telling a story in a visual medium without using dialogue/words, you have to make sure every visual you use counts towards the story. Every frame of a wordless comic has to move the action forward and get across any characterization you might need to show. Without the ability to “tell” via dialogue, you have to “show” via visuals—and that means you have to understand the meaning of each visual you want to use; when, where, and how to use them; and how to best get across each visual without letting it lose its meaning or ruin the clarity of your story. The most famous wordless comic I can think of—GI Joe’s “Silent Interlude” issue—is a master class in how to do all of that.

In the case of all the stuff the most notoriously does that, it's because there aren't any laws like in North America that say you can't turn your cartoon into a half hour commercial to sell tie-in merch.
So in Japan that is what those anime are, so they want to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak.

I'm sure the practicalities of adapting a comic versus adapting a manga play a part as well. Even long-running manga are self-contained series with a single author, and they don't have to deal with company-wide continuous universes with multiple decades of ancillary material.

I mean, where the hell would you start with a direct Superman adaptation? Action Comics #1?

>Marvel and DC are consistently considered the mainstream, but they are routinely beat out in pure sales and popularity by webcomics, manga and graphic novels including Telgemeier’s Smile and Drama (both with more copies in print than Star Wars #1, and at a higher retail price). Homestuck is a webcomic that was, at least at one point, getting 600,000 unique visitors per day, and Randall Munroe’s XKCD was reportedly pulling in between 60 and 70 million hits a month at times. The last pamphlet comic prior to Star Wars #1 to sell one million copies was a Pokemon manga from 1999.

>Ironically, Marvel’s own Ms. Marvel presents a perfect example of this scenario: the ongoing title remains one of Marvel’s most successful series, but its success is still qualified and written off, because it’s just “placating a vocal minority at the expense of the rest of the paying audience.” Another prominent example is how The Walking Dead #100 sales were qualified—it sold nearly 400,000 copies, and the series’ collections sell consistently well in bookstores and online, but it’s still an “indie” book despite evidence to the contrary. Book after book continues to regularly dwarf the sales of Marvel and DC output—some even casting a shadow on the historic sales of Star Wars #1—but their success is overlooked. Regardless of how many units are sold, Marvel and DC are mainstream and everything else is “other.”

I don't think even comic book fans dispute how tiny the direct market is (god knows I haven't stepped foot in a comic book store for nearly a decade). DC and Marvel might be little more than IP farms nowadays, but I think what keeps them being "the mainstream" and the hilariously larger graphic novel/manga/webcomic markets "indie" is that the "big two" have corralled their titles under their duopolistic umbrella while the wider market remains extremely fractured. A vast and disparate collection of players are making pennies from their own small corners instead of hoarding the revenue from multiple sources in a single pot. So while DC/Marvel's share of the market is tinier, they're able to monetise it better.

Makes you imagine, doesn't it? What if webcomics bunched their universes together like DC/Marvel do? I imagine a Hiveworks crossover would break the internet.

2) Who was the one who called the quarantine "claustrophobic" and wanted to go out first? Mr. PB
3) Right after a bloody massacre... they immediately grilled up some porkchops and ate dinner amidst blood splattered walls and parasite corpses. This family is fucked up, but not that fucked up.

Mr. PB is a parasite. The last few scenes where he gets shot by Beth and goes through physical therapy are all implanted memories. Similar to how getting stuck in an elevator or being caught by a Nazi turned out "good" because some wacky new character saved them, shooting Mr. PB turned out to be a "good" memory with respect to Mr. PB because he forgave Beth.

The new OP contains Mr. PB to indicate he escaped successfully and has now implanted himself into the memories of the rest of the world... us, the audience.
