post #46 of 622

I don't think I could get into anime. I've tried watching it and it's always too dramatic and corny for me to enjoy. I'm not sure if The Boondocks is considered anime, but that's the only one I've watched that I've liked merely because it's funny.

 

You know what another show aimed towards little girls (I assume) that I enjoyed was? The Powerpuff Girls. I was watching that the other day and I still enjoy it. As a kid, I refused to watch it because 'eww it's for girls, etc.' but then my sister made me watch it and I enjoyed it since. It makes me realize that I'm getting older if Boomerang is showing cartoons from when I was a kid.

Yeah, I heard that somewhere, but I looked on Wikipedia and no, it's not. It was created by Craig McCracken and Lauren Faust is not credited for anything. Tara Strong was the voice for Bubbles so maybe that's a similarity?

I agree with that. Same for me, to an extent. Also I never watched the Powerpuff Girls...I remember it being on TV all the time years ago but I never watched it.

If you can, I would recommend watching it. The characters aren't as deep (for lack of a better word) compared to mlp, but it's an enjoyable, entertaining show.

I'll absolutely check it out. Also, it's funny you mentioned deep. I couldn't agree with that more, it really seems that MLP allows the viewer to really step into their world, you know? I don't get that with a lot of shows. I don't know, maybe that's just me though.

I think that the characters are really what makes the show. If the characters were just flat and static with giggly personalities, it would be another typical little girl Saturday-morning cartoon, but they're very diverse and in a realistic way (not polar opposites of each other). Much like in real life, which like you said allows the viewer to step into their world.

Lauren Faust did a lot for the Powerpuff Girls. This included character design, storyboard artist, a bit of writing (not much mind you), and supervising director for several episodes. She produced for Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends and My Little Pony Friendship is Magic.

Exactly.

Like I'm trying to tell everyone: Fluttershy is a perfect character.
And I guess the other ponies are fairly decent characters too...

Finally had the chance to watch S2's finale. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. I do find myself agreeing with the idea that it seems similar to a Disney creation, but they did have a pretty good formula for kid's entertainment. Still planning to watch it again, along with the rest of S2, as I usually like to consume things a couple times. Overall I'd give S2 a thumbs up. After my last two finals, i'll have loads of time to really dive back into it again. Methinks a marathon might be in order next week. biggrin.gif

I plan on doing a 24 hour marathon once my finals are over (and I graduate). I'll also probably go buy a Twilight Sparkle brushable toy, because it seems fitting.

 

Also this. Now if only I could think of something that costs $15 that I won't need until mid August.

I'm making it a matter of principle to buy all the DVDs Shout Factory releases, just to prove that there's a market for them.

 

I love that there are two five star reviews already.

 

I can't even remember what I said in the old thread before it was closed. Like what you guys know I've done and bought. I did buy the first DVD released. And there was a problem with the first wave, the audio got out of sync at the end of a couple episodes. So I got a free replacement too. If anyone doesn't have it yet, is interested, doesn't mind audio sync problems, and is willing to pay shipping I might be able to send the original your way.
