Miraculous Ladybug

Post by Lupana » Fri Dec 25, 2015 8:46 pm

My new / current obsession. This show is brand new, only been out here in America for less than a month? Plot follows the superhero Ladybug and her partner Chat Noir (or Cat Noir aka Black Cat depending on if your watching the English or French version or what the subtitles say). Marinette, her civilian self is a nice female character. Her partner is a pun-loving funny sidekick and the dynamic is very sweet.

The show is aimed at kids, so there's a lot of corny dialogue and reused animation shots for their transformations among other things but I will recommend it and think it holds great promise!

I remember that from way back when it was in production! It was initially going to be a 2D movie.... then the last thing I heard was it was going to be a 3D movie. Interesting to see it move on!

XD I'm loving it so much. It's now a 3D series but I read that it's also going to be an Anime style movie. OVA I think they called it? I can never remember what that means either.

OVA, from my understanding, is like a little movie or prolonged episode. I know that term from the Hamtaro days :P .... Apparently the acronym means 'Original Video Animation' and it often refers to TV animated specials.

OVAs are usually direct to tape/disc, not theater or broadcast, although sometimes they get broadcast after being released to market.

Someone I follow on Tumblr has been posting a lot about this, and I immediately fell in love with Cat Noir's design haha. I mean, you'd think it's something rather simplistic, but I'm totally digging it. And that hair animation is fab. I'm very tempted to watch it just for the sake of being able to stare at the animation.

Posting here again to encourage you all to watch this. Admittedly the very first episodes are corney and cheesy but it gets so much better. The origin episodes are incredible and I was squealing like the fangirl I am. Go watch the English or English subbed episodes on Youtube because FEELINGS.
