It's popped up on Facebook a few times (thanks Aanchir) and what I saw was superheroes and adorable things, so I was like sure I'll see what's up. Saw it originated in France and figured that was a good sign, since my experience with French cartoons has been exceptionally positive.
So over the past couple of days I watched the existing season, and found it very enjoyable.
Except for one little thing.
In my post-watch info scrape I found out that apparently the placeholder voice for Cat Noir was Matthew Géczy, and though I like the final voice actor I am a bit sad that I was this close to having my two favorite 3D French catboys voiced by the same person.
I saw the original one once, and the scene I remember most is the part where they're driving across the bridge discussing the apocalypse and one of the guys is like "this is too much doom and gloom" and turns on the radio to some epic drum machines.
So I was disappointed at the lack of big cheesy drum machines in the new Ghostbusters movie.
Other than that, though, I can't really think of any part of it I disliked.
Been watching a lot of stuff from Star Wars Celebration.
Dave Filoni is such a master troll and I love him so much. Especially what he shared at the Ahsoka panel, that's some pretty amazing stuff.
Having never followed anything with Thrawn, his appearance doesn't strike me all that much, though the reaction of everyone at the Rebels panel was really something. I'm much more interested in Sabine's hair and jetpack and Darksaber. The rest of the Mandalorians, too. And… Ventress? Like, that has to be Ventress. It's her voice, it shows Nightsister magic, all sorts of stuff. It can't not be Ventress in some form or another.
Ten years ago today, at least according to Wikipedia, the first episode of Ōban Star-Racers aired. To this day it has its place alongside Avatar and Code Lyoko as some of my favorite animated TV. Unlike those, however, the story only spanned one season and it seems like not as many people remember it.
Having bought and read "The Art of Oban Star-Racers" gave me a new appreciation of the effort put into this show. And before that, I'd managed to snag a couple of t-shirts from the Oban Fan Shop, which unfortunately seems to be down indefinitely.
I'm not the only one celebrating, either: this page went up to celebrate its original April debut in France, and has a bunch of behind-the-scenes art and stuff. Seriously, this show looked fantastic.
(Also, the avatar I had before Sabine was Molly/Eva. Guess I missed that mark by a year or so, oh well.)
