  2. Uh....what? First off, it doesn’t really matter cause she already does have “Rouge like fanart” like every other character regardless of their age. Second off, is this really important to talk about this? Amy is only 12 but going by Japan standards, it’s probably because she’s portrayed older than she is. Third, if there’s anything Sonic Team needs to focus in terms of inconsistency, it’s not this. Fourth.....Wut?

  4. Goku always gets nagged by his wife for training instead of working for money.

    Why not apply as a bounty hunter?

    That way, he fights criminals and gets paid.

      Makes too much sense 

  5. Are You Going to Buy Sonic Forces?

    Bought it day one. It had flaws and wasn’t outstanding but it wasn’t terrible either. It’s a decent game more or less. I actually had a blast playing the whole thing and got addicted to it at one point when it came to grinding missions and such. Needless to say, my opinion remains the same, it’s fun and worth my money.
  6. American cartoons always to used parody anime back then but it would be interesting to see it vise-versa.

    1. Ferno


      Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt is pretty much that but as a whole show

      it even has parts that imitate some of our flash-animated stuff before it goes back to it's regular frame-by-frame look.

    2. Dizcrybe


      FLCL parodies South park at one point. I was dumbfounded.

  7. I wish I could sing badly in the sing along...but that would probably be cheating lol.

    I’ll sing as cheesy as I can though.

    1. Polkadi


      Sing like it's an anime intro! :DDD

  8. OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes

    Eh...it’s alright. Unfortunately, it’s not my cup of tea. I really want to give this show a chance, it should’ve been my type of show with the video game/anime influence, but the way the show delivers feels so eh.... My problem with the style and design is that it focuses way way too much on character expressions which makes things kinda distracting imo and if you get past the intentional game/anime design inspirations which I found a great touch for the cast (KO=Goku, Rad=Piccolo, Enid’s=Chun-Li(?) Boxman = N.Gin/Wily) while they seem decent, they just feel...uninteresting to me, not bad characters just...meh, especially considering KO is just another basic “LOL SO CUTE AND HAPPY AND LOVES EVERYTHING” modern protagonist. There are occasional laughs with the facial expressions and such but the humor just comes across as extremely random to me. To me, it feels like wasted potential but there’s so much they can do with the gaming influence and it’s definitely there don’t get the wrong idea, but as MSB stated above, it’s just too whimsy and silly for my taste. It’s not the fitting tone I would imagine for a show with the influence I adore so much. I dunno, there’s something about this show that just isn’t doing it for me, it’s not my ideal video game/anime influenced show. If it is for you, great to hear! But for me, maybe next time. I’ll still watch it time to time though.
  9. With Steven Universe, Star, and now KO.

    I’m kinda getting sick of every modern protagonist being a happy, cheerful, helpful, kid who’s easily amused by everything.

    Not a bad personality but with how frequent it’s become, it’s getting annoying.

    Would it kill for a little variety?

    1. Diogenes


      more asshole children that hate everything please

    2. Ernest-Panda


      Or children who are shy, insecure, etc.

    3. Dee Dude

      Hell, I kinda miss classic asshole or idiot protagonists myself.

      Long as they’re written well of course.

    4. DiamondX


      That's most probably the reason I don't watch that much of modern cartoons. They are all too simialar.

      Either way too happy or extremely emotional (mostly SU) for no reason.

    5. Ernest-Panda


      You know I'd also take happy, friendly kid but with depression.

      There are people out there who come off as the most fun, optimistic people you'll ever meet that you'd never guess they were fighting depression.

    6. Yeow


      There's also Clarence, Mabel from Gravity Falls, and Finn from Adventure Time (early seasons, I think the cheerful and happy elements are more downplayed in later seasons). It is a definite trend of 2010s era of cartoons.

      That said, there are exceptions if you know where to look though. Mighty Magiswords, Gumball, The Loud House, We Bare Bears, the new Mickey Mouse shorts, and Regular Show.

      It is also worth noting that those three examples you mentioned do take clear inspiration from 90s anime, with K.O. having clear DBZ cues; and Steven and Star following on "magical girl" shows like Sailor Moon (the idealistic ones).

      Not to mention the genres are always the same.

      Either Slice Of Life (Clarence, We Bare Bears,), Fanasty (Star, Gravity Falls,) or both. (Steven Universe)

      Exception for a few of course.

      These are also common trends of 2010s which are also why I can’t get into them much aside from watching a few clips time to time.

      I feel like there was something of a backlash against stuff that was too wholesome or innocent for a while so we started seeing a trend away from pure heroes towards wiseguys and dudes with attitude. 

      Wiseguys got a bit too wise for some people tho. Reached a point where a lot of people were just wonderin' can y'all be fakkin nice.

      So we got starry eyed innocent children as the thing now. We'll see what's next. Trends are generally on the way out when an awareness of them is reached.

      Did I mention they’re an easy target for Tumblr?


    11. ShroomZed


      I'd like to see more characters that are legitimately really bad tempered. They don't have to be assholes, they could just be someone who is just trying to get through the day and just can't help but lose it. 

      I do like asshole and selfish characters too of course. 

    12. King Koopone

      Maybe that's why stuff like Steven Universe, Star and Gravity Falls don't appeal to me? I like my stuff lighthearted but it seems a bit patronizing and can't relate to the characters at all. It is weird that the only cartoon from this current era that I managed to watch and like is Justice League Action. I quite like what I've seen of Wabbit however episodes of that seem to hard to catch on.

      Another thing that we had recently are reboots that are very similar to each other. You have a main character that is quite nice and jolly but also not as smart as they seem to be and their older counterparts were more aggressive and less stupid. Then there's the female with glasses that has an authority role, acts like a control freak who thinks that she IS the main character and better than the rest of the cast by putting them down (said character is why I didn't like them). Oh and the main villain is chunky with an accent? The animation is also different than the original. Am I describing Danger Mouse or DuckTales? It seem Samurai Jack (from what little I know) is the exception.

  10. I just realized something.

    None of the side characters in Forces have any actual in-game models and only appear through cutscenes and radio.

    1. RedFox99


      Aside from Shadow.

    2. Josh


      the game treats them really poorly guys js

    3. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      So much for character mods lol.

      @Josh Tbh, I’d take doing shit off screen then being cheerleaders on screen.

      They’re both bad usage tho.

    4. shdowhunt60


      Yeah, and for whatever reason all the cutscenes except for the avatar ones are pre-rendered.

      Which is fucking weird. Why do you do things Sonic Team?

    5. Josh


      they had in game models and cute side missions in generations

      i could tell there were people on the team that liked them as characters and like the series in general even if the game was a rush job that doesnt use them in the story

      forces doesn't really care about them at all to the point where most of them are OOC and talking heads for most of the game but hey silver got a fight scene!!! we in there

    6. RedFox99


      Wait, Generations was rushed.

    7. Scott


      Isn't it ironic as hell that a game about a blue speedy hedgehog is always rushed?

      I’ve heard.

      Can’t believe that happened...

      Glad to hear Ayres is getting the help he needs. I recall Chuck Huber having a successful funding campaign several years back as well. Nice to see the fans give back to help the actors they love.

  12. Since I’m getting back to Dragon Ball and want to follow Super through Funimation.

    What’s your general verdict on Super?

    1. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      Fight choreography kinda sucks until the Black Saga.

      Story is about as dumb as the Buu saga, but it never stays in one arc for too long.

      I advise watching BoG and RoF, then starting at ep 28. You won't miss much.

    2. Adamabba


      Ayy I've just started with DBS too. I'll be watching it the way Shaddy suggested

    3. Josh


      never reaches the highs on Dragon Ball Z and is hoenstly on par with the lows. Fight choreography and animation borders on horrible until the latest arc so its not very fun to watch

      A decent time if you're a  big  fan but I wouldn't recommend it otherwise

  13. “I don’t have legs, neither do you dude.”

    ”Don’t remind me, DUDE.”

  14. Does rebranding require a Sonic?

  15. Made my second redesign on board. Comet! Design wise, I've didn't change much from him aside from orange eyes, a more rugged look, goggles, and a different hairstyle. He's a rabbit now instead of a fox but I'll get to that later. In the reboot, Comet is Lyra's brother who is a industrial mechanic skilled in aircraft machinery such as planes and rockets that he admires so very much, his inventions don't always come out perfection but hey, at least practice exists. Comet is also the leader and co-founder of the Jump-Gang alongside Rocku who is his best friend, Comet has his self-doubts about leadership time to time but Rocku's encouragement is a main factor in helping him pull through leading a worthy team to battle and planning. Comet appreciates his sister's optimism but himself tends to be a bit dorky and awkward when trying to impress himself, regardless he's still a very brave and helpful soul who's ready for anything he can build or fight. He's capable of combat but Comet utilizes more on weapons and gadgets that he builds such as guns, boomerangs, grappling hooks, jet-packs, or even just a big ol' wrench to whack someone on the head!
