This is basically going to serve as one long, very long, very extensive way to end all arguments we're going to have about PPG '16 so nobody comes around saying how much the reboot sucks--it does, but not in the way you think--and I'm going to try to seem like I'm not angry or blaming anyone. I'm just going to state a few facts. Let's start with this: POWERPUFF GIRLS '16 IS NOWHERE NEAR AS BAD AS TTG!!!

Look, if you want to really compare the two, there's nothing to go off of: PPG '16 is a mediocre reboot to a great series, and TTG is a shitty, awful reboot to an awesome series. While TTG gets LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE THING WRONG (a few good episodes like 40%, 40%, 20% and Cool School do NOT justify the 90+ bad to unwatchable episodes against them), Powerpuff Girls 2016 DOES have positive qualities:
-The art style is good; it's bright, it's colorful, the characters are very expressive, and I kinda like the little details of how the girls' eyes can change to reflect their mood. It's cute.
-Unlike TTG, the creators actually seem to KNOW their work, and I can't hate this show knowing that they put forth more than 1% of effort into trying to be like the original show (it doesn't work, granted, but misguided effort is always superior to someone who just doesn't even try).
-Following that, they at least got the characters right. It would've been nice if the original VA's would've been contacted (seriously, not even TARA STRONG; she's in practically everything) but they aren't 4Kids One Piece bad and there's nothing wrong with trying to add in some new talent. This could potentially end up being a springboard for these actresses to go on to do much better voice work elsewhere.
-The characters at least look and (somewhat try to) act like their original counterparts. TTG, on the other hand, is basically the Chinese knock-off version of the Titans designed by someone who drew from only the vaguest memories of what they looked and acted like. If they DIDN'T get the original voice cast back, this show would've been gone in 10 episodes.

Now look, I'm not trying to say this is even a good show because it really isn't. It's watchable in some places but it doesn't feel like it has purpose: they changed too much to appeal to the old fans who could recognize all the fanservice and occasional "hey, you remember that?" jokes, and the new audience isn't going to pick up on those jokes anyway. I hate the fight scenes (or lack thereof), I hate why they took out Ms. Bellum, I hate that they don't have the series worked out after they're over halfway through Season 1, and even though some of the new villains like Packrat feel like they could've worked in the original (maybe not as A-list as the Gangrene Gang or Mojo Jojo, they wouldn't feel totally out of place) but then you have really dumb villains like Man-Boy or Janitaur which feel like rejected characters from Robot Chicken, but most of all I hate where all the rage and bile for this series is coming from.

This series never shows that it was made with any bile or malice for the original, but just that its love is misguided and they're trying to fix problems that never existed. The show, to me, is mediocre but I can't call it bad and I still currently stand by this series as the most overhated cartoon on Cartoon Network--even more than Johnny Test (c'mon guys, it's a shitty cartoon, not the apocalypse; chill out). Ultimately, I can only hope the series just burns itself out by Season 2 before it embarasses itself and we can move on to Twelve Forever or Lakewood Plaza Turbo. Just let this face away; its dated memes and attempts at modernization are just blatant grabs for attention. Hope we finally cleared the air on this whole thing. Y'know what, one last thing: Painbow.

Now that I've gotten the intellectual side of me out of the way, let me tell you right now Painbow isn't a bad episode because of a 15 second GIF-worthy twerking moment; it's a bad episode BECAUSE IT'S A BAD EPISODE!!! Seriously, how does NO ONE bring this up?! A rainbow appears over Townsville that causes everyone to be hypnotized into a constant state of ecstasy and partying, caused by a panda bear in the clouds. You see how stupid that sounds?!?! The twerking thing isn't the issue: the issue is this episode is horribly written, makes no sense, and has some tacked on moral to pretend it has a point about Buttercup learning something. It's bad, probably one of the worst episodes--even counting the original series.

Okay, now we're done. I might cover at least one or two episodes of this in Rants & Raves but don't expect to see a PPG Week at some point.
Powerpuff Girls 2016 Doesn't Suck
I'm gonna get a lot of hatemail for this, aren't I? 300 Watcher Special coming up, but I just wanted to lay down the law here on an important topic. Hope we all at least have an understanding.

Stardust Crusaders it is! I'll most likely do it as an Anime Unknown because I already reviewed Boku no Pico for April Fools' Day and haven't done an AmU OVA review yet. 
Guys, my 300 Watcher Special is coming up soon. The watcher in question, :iconinfinity-putotyra:, has requested that I do a review of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (though he hasn't specified anything specific yet, so I'll probably do either a First Impressions or Anime Unknown on one of the series from 1993 or 2000 or the Stardust Crusaders OVA)

Animation Infamy Template by PerfectZanderSanchez
Animation Infamy Template
Well, I hope that the sample templates I used have given you guys some idea of how to use this template to create your own Animation Infamy posters. The template is free for anyone to use, but only on two conditions: credit me in the description, and only pick something that fits the criteria. I don't just mean something bad or "not as good as other episodes"; to make Animation Infamy, it must be THE ABSOLUTE WORST with next to ZERO redeemable qualities or have flaws too massive or too wretched to make up for (12 oz Mouse, Fanboy & Chum-Chum, and Escape From Planet Earth make for good examples; a weak Spongebob episode, or some lame GoAnimate internet project are not good examples). 

Above all, hope you make something really enjoyable and entertaining, and successfully manage to warn people about the worst of the worst in animation history. Don't worry about calculating the bounty, though; I mostly just went for higher the number, higher the danger since there's varying levels of bad so it's really up to you whether intentionally offensive bad is worse than incompetently bad.

Magic Set Editor Help?

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 26, 2016, 4:19 PM


Well guys, since my computer is temporarily down and it's getting pretty touch and go, I have to use my desktop as a loaner until this whole thing gets sorted out. I haven't used this thing in ages, and it still has the Magic Set Editor stuff I downloaded onto it, but I'm having a few issues.

1) Despite having the Pendulum Normal, Effect, and Xyz cards on there just fine, I can't seem to get the program to recognize the templates for Pendulum Synchro, Dark Synchro, Ritual, and Fusion.
2) There's a big issue with the fact it's refusing to recognize symbols and translate them into the correct images (i.e. * turning into level stars, or dark stars for Dark Synchros and Ranks for Xyz)
3) This brings me to my third problem: coding in Composition Monsters. Composition Monsters aren't actually something in the card game, but the invention of a fan project called Yu-Gi-Oh! G-Start. I thought the idea was kinda cool so I wanted to try to make a few of my own.
    -Composition Monsters are red cards that don't have levels but Qualities (which are just inverted Rank stars); the biggest problem with coding them: they don't start from the right like Levels or the left like Ranks but move out from the center.
4) This one is less important, but I still want help with it. Can someone out there make some custom emblems and stuff for the MLP trading cards? I kinda wanted a custom icon for my original race Trossels.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey I just thought of a suggestion for animation unknown the other day that you might can do (if you want that is) I have seen the short "the bear that wasn't" if not you can find it on youtube, it's an interesting little short I'd recommend it

Hmm, don't think I've heard of that one, but I don't think I've ever done shorts before on Animation Unknown (unless you count dropped pilots); I'll give it a shot I guess.
