I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

I'm excited that this sounds to be a quality production. I don't think there will be any lasting longevity to it. And that may be the intention, as it seems to be intended as a limited series.

Hopefully this leads to a full relaunch after the film comes out.

being a long time transformers fan, I'm confident I'll be able to process 2 independent ongoing continuities. So I don't mind that this show will exist as something else for me to watch. So long as nothing stupid like the Bat embargo goes on here and the producers of the She-ra show can still use concepts from the overall canon of motu as they see fit. That being said, I'd also not care if this new show used She-ra continuity also ... it should all be free game to both shows.

 

and I want to be real with you all, these shows should be the last 2 places in entertainment where you should try and play out any 'genderagender' ... I'm just not here for that shit in 2019/2020 ... its almost disturbing that people are already suggesting this is a reaction by dudebros ...

 

its not, its a reaction by Netflix to seeing the popularity of a current product... that's it.

I think that's true, especially as all we have to go on now is apparently "something something Teela". Fingers crossed.

I just hope they don't pull a Regeneration One (etc), and ignore the G2 book the New Adventures show. That would show such disrespect for the canon!

I want them to do a holiday alternate universe crossover with Netflix She-Ra with the animation styles obviously clashing. Like TMNT Forever and those eps in Nick TMNT.

Then a crossover with New Adventures and 2002 versions, hehe

Exactly. What this needs to be is honest continuation of the story. No winking at the camera or 'this was so goofy' stuff. Comedy is great, but not when it undercuts things. Let the She Ra reboot be its own story, that can be independent from this.

I mean, how many successful reboots has TF had? And none of them need to crossover, except for Transtech.

Speaking of the New Adventures of He-Man. When those figures came out originally, they released a cassette with what was (at the time) a pretty cool prologue of sorts to how He-Man ends up in the future. It in no way tied into the cartoon, but i thought it was really good. Its an interesting, if incredibly cheesy, alternate beginning to the New Adventures.

Kinda somebody had been able to save a recording of it and upload it online. Ah well.

EDIT:

I stand corrected, somebody did. 1989? Wow, i feel old.

I was excited, until I learned it was tied to Filmation and Kevin Smith was showrunner. I'm not a huge fan of either and I don't have a huge amount of faith in this being the thing that helps drag MOTU off the nostalgia scrapheap.

No, this feels like they are doubling down on that. They see all these old properties revived on Netflix and being popular, and decide they need to do that; but becuase they think new doesn't sell and all people want are the original stuff, they're going as HARD as they can on the 80's nostalgia becuase its the only he-man stuff they can sell to a very small demographic.

I'm certainly curious to see how this goes.  The idea of somehow continuing from the original Filmation series is very odd.  I generally like Kevin Smith's, although I don't think he's ever been heavily involved in creating a TV series before.

 

I was really hoping that She-Ra would eventually introduce the major He-Man characters and possibly result in a full spin-off.  That seems less likely now.

I dunno what the tone of the new Motu would be but I'd love the crossover to be a special 'holiday' episode, like once a year.

They'd Spider-Verse it (though Turtles Forever did it first. Well, also the 90s Spider-Man show).

But I'd be fine if She-Ra's show does it instead. Let her see 80s, New Adv, 2002 and new Netflix Motu and have her breakdown as an 'It's a Wonderful Life' kind of story. Ties into Christmas too, hehe

Edit - oh, Transformers, yeah. I mean, when G1 was tied into Beast Wars in season 2, my jaw dropped.

When TFAnimated had their Blackarachnia end up in an animated Beast Wars world, I was miffed. Cuz we never got to see it go anywhere.

At this point, I'm expecting He-man to drop at least one F-bomb per episode and for there to be at least one steamy sex scene between Adam and Teela, because "ADULT".

I'm not sure by what metric you'd consider TransTech "successful". I mean, you can't measure it by the usual standard since it didn't have a toyline.

Oh no, i wasn't trying to say Transtech was successful as such. Simply that its the only 'multiverse' crossover thing TF has ever had.

As for new MOTU, there is a 'picture' doing the rounds on the web. A skewed pic that allegedly gives a brief premise for MOTU Revelation. It implies that the start will be a massive battle that will 'fracture Eternia' and then follow Teela as she searches for the lost Sword of Grayskull and discover the secrets of Grayskulls past. Some seem to think this means that He-Man with have a big fight at the start of the series, but will then disappear while we follow Teela for the majority of the show.

Take all this with the requisite amount of salt. I mean, more Teela is no bad thing, but a MOTU sequel series with barely any He-Man seems an odd choice to make.
