Discussion of all things animated goes here. Animu, Cartoon Network/[adult swim], YouTube originals, whatevah.

The Global Rule (don't be a dick) applies here.

Old thread's not bumping, so here's a new one.

To start us off, it's Two Best Sisters vs. Jason.

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.

Honestly, it strikes me as trying to make another Mabel Pines in this case.

But Mabel wasn't perfect nor flawless, in fact she fucked up pretty often and she was technically responsible for Bill Cypher nearly destroying the universe.

I mean more in terms of basic character though. They seem to want her to be a similar character to Mabel but with less capacity to fuck up.

Major leak over at Hasbro. This reportedly not only includes the rest of the episodes for the season (and maybe the movie, unsure on that point), but also production materials like the original animatic for the show's intro and a copy of Lauren Faust's series bible.

>a copy of Lauren Faust's series bible

Oh hey, now everyone can finally confirm exactly what in the show post-Lauren's departure is or isn't a betrayal of what she wanted for the series.

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

How exactly do MLP and Transformers not count?

Because the reboots and generations are constant.

They have been consistently rebooting the franchises for decades.

ID: 24b79  No.2268

>>2267

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.

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.

I'm calling it, Tumblrinas will start throwing hissy fits at whoever draws porn of the little one, calling them pedophiles and such shit.

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.

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.
