I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:47 AM)

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

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...

I liked the Super Mario Brothers Super Show the best myself.

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

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.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

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.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

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

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

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.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

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.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

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.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

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"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

Re:Creators!

@  Xellos : (14 January 2019 - 07:47 PM)

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)

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 07:23 PM)

We need more inverse isekais, like The Devil is a Part-Timer

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 04:11 PM)

I feel like Tron is pushing it but I can't actually come up with an argument to that effect

@  Pennpenn : (14 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

I'm thinking Cherrilee found out and threatened Sugar Belle to either leave her man alone or she's getting shanked in the schoolyard.

Either that or Big Mac just happened to hear the wrong part of an out of context conversation and hijinx ensues until everything's straightened out at the end.

I'm leaning more towards the shanking theory.

It would be an interesting twist if it wasn't a misunderstanding and she does want to break up. Their relationship wasn't started on the best of conditions afterall. It would make for a good lead in episode to talk about how to deal break up and hearbreak.

All I'm going to say, is she makes one face that alone I'll let the episode pass for.

I didn't watch all of this when it 'leaked' but I do know the gist of it.

There is one 'thing' in it though that I'm sure is going to 'make it less great' to one or two people.

Skeleanor (or maybe Skellinor, but it's Eleanor with a Skeleton gag), to correct myself.

 

Also, I must've been looking at the Discord (ETA: the chat, not the character) at the 11:54 mark, I had to go back and rewatch to catch LyraBon exchanging gifts as part of a "Mac tormented by the existence of happy couples" mini-montage.  I'd screenshot it, but my DVR covers up way too much content when paused.

So, they went with out of context conversation. Too bad. I was really hoping for a good shanking.

There were quite a few good spots though. Sweetie Belle hoping for a love interest was an interesting 'they grow up so quickly' moment. Poor thing! LyraBon was as cute as ever. The amount of heartache they show in this was really painfully real-world type crap. I'm honestly surprised the went that real. I honestly wasn't expecting Discord, but he was actually interesting here.

Still waiting for Sugar Belle to get shanked.

I was hoping Sweetie Bell's subplot would take a page from the last episode of K-On.

(Ricchan finds a heartfelt love poem in her locker, and tries to turn to the rest of the band for advice, but they all have other things to do. Ricchan spends the episode low-key tormenting herself over exactly what her admirer finds attractive, realizing that she doesn't see anything attractive about herself, and wondering if she's even worthy of being loved. At the end of the ep, all her friends finally get together, and Mio randomly asks her if she's had time to look over the lyrics Mio left her.
". . . LYRICS?!?"
Cue Ricchan beating the jive out of Mio as her friends try to hold her back.)

Mainly 'cause it would've been funny to see tiny, angry Sweetie Bell exploding at Big Mac.

I do hope that they revisit Sweetie Belles subplot at some point. Not that I want her to become some lovesick always looking for love type character. But more of a CMC's are growing up more and more and now they're at that age where boys don't have cooties and...oh dear what is big sister going to say when little sister starts noticing boys and...yeah...

I mean, they got their cutie-marks now. So the writers seem to have gotten to a place of "well now what do we do with them." I think this would be the perfect thing to do. They're growing up...big sister (especially Applejack) may not be prepared for it. Not like "Forever Filly" or "Somepony to Watch Over Me." Like...make it less cringy, more believable, more like how real life family would react. They've actually been doing a pretty decent job of that lately.
