it does have big eyes, and the unique, stylistic, experimental art direction and animation is more commonly seen in anime than in cartoons, it is also heavily inspired by Kurosawa which is something that applies to many anime as well, there are plenty of similarities so it's a fitting recommendation for someone who is mainly into anime and looking to broaden his horizons, it's a show about a wandering samurai for
fucks sake

I started watching Sonic Prime. I swear to god, they're trying their hardest to make Rouge the Bat the cutest character in the series. Compared to Amy, she's designed to be way more feminine and cute. Out of the three versions of her, it's been a home run each time. Amy's cute as well, but it's obvious they're going in a different "art" direction for her character. I'm was never really attracted to her in the games. I'm just pointing out that they're trying extra hard in this show. It's working.

Any wizzies tried animating before? I've been messing around, plan on releasing a part everyday. A bit of a delay with part 3 though since the program crashed losing progress.

Let me know what you think….

I used to do stop motion animation when I was a kid, but haven't had the space to build a stage in my adulthood.
Now I am a full time RVer so it's pretty out of the question.

If I was to try and take up animating again I would have to do it digitally.

Justice league gods and monsters

Was pretty good for a elswere story, even if it felt like they changed things just to change them.
Though it makes me crave the orginals just behaving like themselves.
So might watch another more mainline justice league movie later. There are so many I haven't gotten around to yet so I have a lot to choose from.

Yeah Bruce Timm did too much weird stuff, using the same DCAU designs, when everyone just wanted more DCAU. Now Kevin Conroy is dead.

Also the opening scene was a weird scifi version of rape

amazing digital circus is cool I enjoyed the pilot. I love hand drawn animation too and stop motion

Binged watched the first season of Helluva Boss.
I didn't expect to like it but I do.
Still not sure if it's legitimately good or if I just have really shit taste and a soft spot for edgy bullshit but I had a good time watching it.
I guess I should give Hasbin hotel a shot too, even though I didn't enjoy the pilot anywhere near as much as I did for Helluva Boss, but maybe the actual show is decent. Regardless I have season to left to binge so I can use that to rince the bad taste if I dislike HH.

It's funny how edgy you can be on youtube when you are popular and funded outside of google ads.

watching Fairly Oddparents best cartoon I watched as a kid

 No.67422

I just started watching this again and love it but it was weird in one episode they threw in a joke about the writer of the comic Crimson chin is a "40 year old who lives with his mom" I'll still watch it but it's disappointing normalfags felt the need to deride hikkis/basement dwellers

 No.67423

I thought of it as a joke at the expense of how unappreciated creatives in the comic industry is.
Most work for poverty wages. The few that aren't broke make the bulk of their money outside the traditional comic industry.

 No.67426

>>67422
you seem to have missed out the joke. Following Timmy's response to the actual Crimson Chin, the latter asks if he despite living with his mom the writer made a lot of money, and he is met again with the same answer, "he lives with his mom" it's obvious why this is funny.

Any decent new(ish) toons out?
I feel like I am getting farther and farther out of the loop of whats going on as far as modern animation because Ii don't watch tv.

 No.67433

>>67418
basically all the cartoons I watched while I was a child were shit. I don't even know what I would rate the highest. The first 3 seasons of spongebob were really the only thing that was actually good. That and futurama, but I didn't watch futurama until I was older. Fairly odd parents was probably one of the less shitty ones

 No.67436

I was more of a cartoon network and normal network tv kid for the most part so I didn't get that deep into most Nick shows.

That said fairly odd parents was ok to me, though like most really overly long running shows a lot of the later ep were pretty hit or miss.
Of Butch's work I much preferred Danny Phantom as I loved action focused shows.

Finished Hazbin Hotel.
Was better than I was expecting from the pilot. Didn't like it as much as Helluva Boss, mostly because I liked most of the characters less (especially angle dust who is just fucking gross), and most of the songs aren't great, but overall it's a decent show imo and I look forward to them eventually making a second season.
I like the lore and mystery being built as it goes along. And the answers to set up mysteries are decent and don't feel cheap.

I will keep a eye out for the next release of stuff related to this project.

 No.67460

>>67459
Angel dust has the same problem as blitzo, where their entire humor is just being sexual/swearing and they try really hard to have these "deep" moments that don't feel deserved or matching the tone of their character.

I like the plot too, but it seems like they are leading us on without telling us any of the rules of the universe.

 No.67469

>>67460
I'll second this. It's okay for these characters to have depth and whatnot, but Hazbin Hotel and Helluva Boss are at their best when they don't get all sappy/sentimental.

 No.67470

>>67469
It's probably why my favorite character from HH is Niffty.
Just a uncomplicated funny gremlin used for gags. I actually hope they don't try to "add depth" to her character because they are kinda bad at it.

 No.67471

I am really enjoying Xian Ni (renegade immortal) for some reason that is somewhat hard for me to explain. It's kind of hard to follow because of shitty story telling and it doesn't really have any strong characters, but I love it. I guess I am a sucker for loner characters who are OP. It has really cool visuals. Next on my list of anticipated weekly airing shows are probably Fanren Xiu Xian Chuan, Tunshi Xingkong, and Doupo Cangqiong. After that one tier down are Nitian Xie Shen (2023), Shen Yin Wangzuo, and Da Zhu Zai Nian Fan.

Which shows did you watch?

 No.67475

>>67473
>Romance of the Three Kingdoms (2009 animation)
It was pretty boring, the animation had issues, and I ended up dropping it before reaching the end.

>Wanderings of San Mao/Story of San Mao's Vagrant Life

It was just below average to me and I didn't find most of the humor all that funny. It's also long as fuck so I also dropped it.

>Black Cat Detective

Watched it to completion but it just was of low quality and not all that interesting.

>The Adventures of Little Carp

Oddly enough had a dub vhs tape with a few ep of it. Fell like it was for babies so wasn't interested.

There are probably others I am not remembering.

 No.67479

>>67475
Well no wonder you didn't like them if they were all that old. Chinese animation has really come a long way since then. You should give some modern shows a shot. I watch almost exclusively 3D CGI shows because I prefer them to 2D as it is more immersive, particularly the sets which are far more realistic looking than the people most of the time. It takes some getting used to but can be worth it. If you want to stick with 2D there are still some decent quality shows. For example, Biao Ren: Blades of the Guardian. That was very nicely animated and had some very compelling scenes.

 No.67571

Has there ever been another show like avatar the last airbender? By that I mean a western show that did an anime style fantasy production? Seems like western cartoons are mostly shit and don't take fantasy seriously, but Avatar was pretty good. I wish they would do something like that.

 No.67572

>>67571
There are plenty of western fantasy animated shows and films.
No none were "anime" like as avatar was as deeply Asian inspired besides maybe kung-fu panda.

Maybe give Jackie Chan Adventures a shot. It's Asian, fantasy, and has a strong martial arts focus while being of decent quality.
The writing isn't as good as avatar but the animation is arguably better imo.

 No.67573

>>67572
>Jackie Chan Adventures is set in a world which magic and supernatural forces exist but are unknown to much of humanity

This is the exact type of shit I fucking hate with western fantasy. They just take the normal world that already exists and insert things that don't exist into it. It's buffoonish. I know there aren't dragons or unicorns or whatever in the real world so it is completely immersion breaking to put them in there. You have to actually create an alternative world for the fantasy to not be shit and lazy imo. Avatar was a great example. Magic was integrated into the world. It is a believable "alternate world". Western fantasy has a fetish for just inserting magic shit into the normal world and I hate it. That is the main reason I stick with Japanese and Chinese stuff (not that they're immune to this either, but on the whole they do a pretty good job). It's interesting that this trend actually seems more true for western cartoons than other media. It's not like western media is completely lacking actual fantasy worlds, but I just can't think of any good cartoons other than avatar that have them.

You are absurdly ignorant and seems to just be trying to just be inflammatory.

Magical realism, Urban fantasy, and other such things are and have been appart of the the fantasy genera for all of human history in all cultures world wide.
It isn't unique to the west.

Second, "western fantasy" has lots of high fantasy with other worlds and the like.
There is no "fetish" for inserting "magic shit" into the normal world any more then any other writing trope or theme.
It's like you are just trying to be vulgar and willfully ignorant to get a response. It's disgusting.

> It's not like western media is completely lacking actual fantasy worlds, but I just can't think of any good cartoons other than avatar that have them.

You don't know because you are willfully ignorant, rude, and dismissive.

Why did you even bother posting in this thread other than to desperately try to start arguments?

You're the one being rude you fucking asshole. I'm just talking about my personal preferences. I'm allowed to have those. Go suck a dick. Also if western stuff is so full of high fantasy, give me some examples of cartoons exhibiting these sorts of settings like I was asking for instead of just saying they exist and insulting me for saying I couldn't find them.
