I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?
Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.
I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.
Anyone here reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City?
Remember the Noid? He steals pizzas!
That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there
Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.
sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.
The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...
It's in another castle.

Mario, wherever you are, HEEEEEEEELP!
That's Mama Luigi to you, Mario *wheeze*
It's too hot here.
I liked the Super Mario Brothers Super Show the best myself.
There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.
So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.
The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.
There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.
Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city
I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre
They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid
The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.
hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...
I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore
"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"
Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.
It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.
Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.
Re:Zero is a fantastic series.
Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"
So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie
I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.
I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.
Wait. A. Minute. Is Blaster Master an isekai?
I used to use a pic like that as my avatar for years, but that... is a secret.
Is Flatland an isekai?
@Xellos Every time I see you post, I picture Xellos' infuriating smug grin and finger waggling with the "sore wa hi*mi*tsu*desu <3"
The Last Starfighter is also one of those
Astronaut gets shot through a wornhole and ends up on a living starship full of escaped alien prisoners.
I realized a few months ago that Farscape is a sci-fi-based Isekai.
The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.
@xellos We get to many of those in Hollywood movies.
There is also Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, where people regularly get summoned to a fantasy world, then eventually sent back with their accumulated powers (and the main character smuggles the demon lord's daugher by his request, which is a no-no)
We need more inverse isekais, like The Devil is a Part-Timer
I feel like Tron is pushing it but I can't actually come up with an argument to that effect
To Arazyr- I don't see why it wouldn't be.
