Makes sense, considering they take place in the same universe.

Come to think of it, was there ever a reason given why Launchpad worked for Scrooge and Darkwing?

ID: 334e2  No.2284

I don't recall the specific reason why Launchpad works for Scrooge, but it's probably covered in the Ducktales pilot serial. He eventually leaves Scrooge's employ (off-screen) and joins up with Darkwing after Launchpad catches DW snooping around in his hangar. He happens to be one of Darkwing's biggest fans, and built the Thunderquack as an homage to him.

So I watched the first episode. Overall, pretty good. The art style is going to take some getting used to but it's not bad.

Really my only concern is that Webby seems in extreme danger of turning into a "quirky goofy lolsorandom silly but ubercompetent glitterprincess" archetype which would be both annoying and a severe disservice to the character. It's nice that she has a personality now but I reeeeally don't want it to be that personality.

I think what'll take a lot more getting used to is Huey, Dewey and Louie sounding so off.

Also, this video sums up most of my thoughts nicely and points out things I didn't even notice on first viewing.

Plenty of shows with similar setup seem to suffer from that problem. The writers think that just because there is one female character in the group of protagonists, that they have to make up for it by making her the smartest, flawless and all-around most competent character. It only does disservice to said character and makes her look like a blatant feminist fanservice.

It was mediocre, but hardly as offensively bad as…all of cartoon network's current lineup.

How exactly do MLP and Transformers not count?

ID: b6541  No.2267

Because the reboots and generations are constant.

They have been consistently rebooting the franchises for decades.

ID: 24b79  No.2268


Does the frequency of the reboots really matter? The same thing applies to them; some reboots were met far more positively than others.

You can hardly claim Beast Wars is remembered in the same way as G1, or MLP G4 is thought of in the same light as G3.

ID: be4d3  No.2269


Yeah but the point is those are franchises. They're not "remakes", they're doing something at least slightly different with the same premise each time.

These aren't going to be some new batch of Warners, they're not meant to be entirely different characters with the same general look and names, this is intended as a revival.

I will be honest, I did not see that coming. I guess it also serves to show Steven that he really needs to work on his naivette.

And the episodes have been leaked ahead of airing schedule, yet again.

Anyway….that season finale was fucking intense, what with Steven turning himself in to the Homeworld Gems, revealing to them that he has Rose Quartz's gemstone.

Season 5 begins airing on May 31st.

Episode 9!

We pick up immediately where we left off last week, with Jack and Ashi sharing a passionate kiss (turns out they didn't have sex after all). They share an awkward moment together before Ashi goes in search of clean clothing (she finds a uniform in one of the ship's storage lockers), while Jack bathes himself under a water pipe. Jack is happy for Ashi's company, but also feels uneasy, as he has never been in love before.

That night, around a campfire, Ashi asks Jack if he ever thinks about his home. He replies that he does so every day, and tells her about the change of the seasons in his home village, before Aku came and destroyed everything. Ashi regrets bringing up the subject, but Jack says it is nice to remember life before Aku, especially since he will never see his home again, except in his memories.

Meanwhile, Scaramouche finally arrives at Aku's citadel (on the legs of an octopus) and tells him that Jack has lost his sword. Aku is overjoyed at the news, going so far as to restore Scaramouche's lost body.

In the morning, Ashi wakes to find that Jack has left during the night. He has ventured into the desert, where he comes upon the battlefield where he encountered the Guardian; the time portal he protected has been destroyed, like all the others, and all that remains of the Guardian are his shattered glasses. Ashi catches up and demands to know why Jack left her; Jack replies that Aku has destroyed everything he has ever loved, leaving him with only memories, and he doesn't want to lose Ashi, too. Ashi reaffirms her commitment to help Jack destroy Aku.

Just then, Aku himself appears, accompanied by Scaramouche. They make some snarky comments about Jack losing his sword; when Jack draws his new blade, Aku promptly destroys Scaramouche for his stupidity. Aku prepares to retreat, but he detects his own scent coming from Ashi. Flashbacks reveal that Aku once visited the Daughters of Aku and left behind a fragment of himself in a chalice for them to worship; Ashi's mother then drank from the chalice, then gave birth to Ashi and her sisters, meaning that Ashi is literally a daughter of Aku.

Jack moves to strike Aku down, but Ashi involuntarily moves to block his attacks; Aku is either in direct control of her, or his ePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

The series finale. A lot gets crammed into 22 minutes.

Aku makes a worldwide broadcast to every television on the planet (and everyone, no matter their level of technology, appears to own a flatscreen) in which he airs the original Samurai Jack intro in its entirety and announces that he has captured both Jack and his sword. He intends to publicly execute Jack as a warning to anyone else who might oppose him, but mulls over his choice of weapon, realizing that after so many years, he hasn't given the matter much thought. Meanwhile, Jack begs Ashi (still possessed) to resist Aku's influence, but his words seem to have no effect.

Aku eventually decides to have Ashi kill Jack for him, but as she prepares to strike, the walls of Aku's fortress begin to crumble; it has come under assault from an army of Jack's friends and allies (including the Spartans, the archers, the "jump good" monkey tribe, the mer-people, and one of the canine archaeologists) who have seen the broadcast and have come to rescue him. While Aku is distracted by the rebels, Jack attempts to retrieve his sword, but it is defended by Ashi, who is more than a match for Jack.

Aku is impervious to the rebels' weapons and creates an army of small duplicates to fend them off. The battle does not go well, until the Scotsman and his daughters arrive riding large deer as mounts. The Scotsman offers to let Jack have his pick from his daughters (haw) while friendly robots arrive to battle Aku in a giant, mechanized samurai. Aku, fed up with the rebels' attack, launches himself into the sky and bombards the area around his fortress with spines, while the Scotsman tanks with a forcefield created by his magical bagpipes.

Ashi absorbs Jack into herself, and he tries in vain to break her free from Aku's control. Jack confesses his love for Ashi, which finally snaps her out of it, causing her to revert to her former (black-suited) appearance. Aku moves in to kill Jack, but Ashi defends him, revealing that she has retained her demonic abilities.

Upon realizing that she possesses all of Aku's powers, Ashi retrieves Jack's sword and opens a time portal, immediately sending both of them into the past. They arrive seconds after Aku originally sent Jack into the future, and in his weakened state ("You're back already!Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Yeah, it's pretty great. It says something about a story when you feel so close to the characters that a chapter can ruin your day like the most recent one did.

I was also really hoping for more from pandora before that happened. I know things will turn out okay eventually. what was it? A few months in-movie?

This kind of got lost in all the brouhaha surrounding the Academy Awards, but Zootopia took the Oscar for Best Animated Picture.

Not surprising. the academy always picks the Disney film. This is just the one time they deserved it.

So apparently Rooster Teeth recently said that in S4, one ship would become canon.

For some reason Black Sun and Bumblebee shippers took that to mean it was a Blake ship and went to war all over again.

Guys. Seriously. It's going to be Lancaster. (Which is still a dumb name but I'm not opposed to it anymore after a S1 rewatch and some thinking.)

ID: b6ce8  No.2146

S4 E1 spoilers:

**Animation and model quality look a lot better now. Guess they keep getting a bigger budget with each volume.*"

Cinder got fucked up pretty badly. Good, she deserved it.

New villains seem pretty generic so far. Wonder what abilities they'll have and if they are as strong as Cinder.

Loving the Asian vibes from Mistral.

Nice to see Jaune's got an equipment upgrade. He could definitely use it.

Guessing we won't see team RWBY get back together this volume. They all seem to be doing their own thing based on the opening.

ID: b55af  No.2147


I was a little annoyed with Jaune's "upgrade". Everyone else got an overhaul and he got tweaks. His character design is almost wholly untouched, they could have at least given him some Grief Stubble or something.

I'm betting RWBY doesn't see each other for at least half the season, a lot of others are betting it will be the whole thing, yeah, which would make me a bit sad. However they were together at the very end of the OP so maybe they'll start getting back together at the very end of the season at the latest.

ID: b55af  No.2148

My poor Yang.

ID: 0d016  No.2183

So volume 4 has wrapped up now. Finale spoilers:

-No one died. Yay. It's nice to see a somewhat happy ending after Vol 3's dark ending.

-That Grimm was pretty strong. It's nice to see that the Grimm can still be a major threat for the characters and not just fodder.

-Guess Nora x Ren was the ship that Rooster Teeth said would be confirmed.

-Mistral looks pretty cool. Can't wait to see more of it in Vol 5.

-Looks like Weiss, Blake, and Yang will likely meet up with Ruby in Mistral next volume.

-So the headmaster of Haven is in league with Salem then? Curious to see how this plays out.

-Oscar/Ozpin meets up with Qrow and gets his cane back. Hope we get some kind of explanation what Ozpin's deal is.
