and how much you love your fans and nature and animals and omg i just love you

anonymous asked:

I'm sorry but I'm one of those people who don't seem to enjoy the movie Tarzan as much :/ Can you please explain why you think it's a masterpiece? I'm interested in knowing why you believe that, because I always agree with your insight on everything☺️

hey no need to apologise, everyone’s entitled to their opinions and sometimes we just don’t gel with movies or books, it’s no big deal!! thank you for being so polite and for asking this, though, i really appreciate your kind words!!!

reasons why i am trash for disney’s tarzan:

  • the SOUNDTRACK. phil collins, certified pop legend, just bringing the perfect mix of rhythmic little tunes and emotional ballads and uplifting lyrics that simultaneously move the story along and get stuck in your head
  • also mark mancina is a genius honestly the score for tarzan is so beautiful, the motif for jane is one of my favourite things in the world. the score has such a unique sound and it sets the scene so perfectly and hits every emotional beat!!
  • the animation!!!! did you know that they created a brand new animation system called deep canvas for this movie?? a whole brand new system!! from scratch!!! it allows 2d characters to move through a 3d world, which is how they got the awesome effects of tarzan sliding along tree branches and swinging on vines to work so well. pay special attention to the backgrounds and you can see how many layers there are in every scene, it really does look like a proper jungle with different levels of foliage and shadow and god it’s a work of art

  • the character of tarzan was animated by the legendary, mind blowingly talented glen keane (also responsible for ariel, the beast, aladdin, pocahontas, rapunzel and many more). BUT here’s the best part - he oversaw his animation from france, where he was meant to be on a sort of year long sabbatical from the disney company but loved the story and character so much he decided to do it anyway
  • MEANWHILE all the other supervising animators (including the incredible ken duncan, animator for jane porter [also meg from hercules]) were back in california. they had to collaborate across timezones and continents to create scenes where their characters interacted, and look at what an amazing job they did!!!

  • the story. i think everyone can relate to the feeling of not fitting in, of being different from everyone around you. and the emphasis on family being those who love you - the message that so long as you are surrounded by people who love you, you are home. god. it makes me emotional
  • tarzan’s parents are two of the best looking characters ever animated by disney and they’re only in the movie for like five minutes what a waste

  • also he’s pretty hot ngl

  • alSO tarzan as a character. he is a genuine sweetheart. he just wants to fit in - first with his family and then with jane and her family. he tries his best at everything, and wants to learn everything, and his curiosity is so endearing
  • OMG WAIT HOW COULD I FORGET BABY TARZAN omg his little noises when kala finds him i can’t, he’s too cute for words honestly. and he blows little bubbles in the shape of a hidden mickey??? t o o  m u c h

  • the fact that the movie very obviously shows kids to respect animals and nature, but never does it get preachy or condescending to do so. it’s worked so well into the narrative, rather than hitting you over the head with a sign saying LOOK THIS MOVIE WANTS YOU TO SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT. it’s inspiring and showcases the beauty of nature and the animals in it but doesn’t attempt to guilt trip you into caring
  • quick side note: mountain gorillas are critically endangered and we need to save them, i am not afraid to guilt trip you into caring please think of the gorillas
  • AND NOW

  • jane wears a stylish big yellow dress complete with bustle to the jungle because she is a lady and that is what ladies wear. she hikes through the african jungle in boots and gloves and a big fucking dress because she will not let the norms of her time stop her from seeing the world. she is travelling!!!! to study science!!!! do you know how rare that was back in the victorian era???? VERY RARE!!!

  • but jane doesn’t care. she goes on this trip with her dad, and she knows all about his research and his study because she is a clever cookie and she cares
  • she isn’t embarrassed by her embarrassing dad, she loves him a lot
  • she talks to herself a lot and she uses her hands when she speaks and is an amazing artist and i just love everything about her okay

Originally posted by i-wont-say-im-in-loveee

  • tarzan is obviously smitten by her and she’s pretty impressed by his abs eyes BUT they spend at least a few months together, learning from each other and getting to know each other, before they admit that they’re in love or ask each other for any sort of commitment. they actually get to know each other!!!!!

Originally posted by baileymckendry

  • and they are EQUALS. jane teaches tarzan about the human world and he teaches her about the jungle, swinging from vines and speaking gorilla, their partnership has give and take and neither of them force the other into staying in the jungle or leaving the jungle, they just ask and then give the other person time to think about it and RESPECT THEIR CHOICES

Originally posted by jane-of-the-wild

  • jane is the one who kisses tarzan first and i don’t know why this is important to me but it is

Originally posted by all-is-well-in-wonderland

  • over all the movie just makes me very happy
  • i think that everything it teaches children is v important and it is visually stunning and pretty to listen to and it has a smart heroine who is an artist and a scientist (because the two are not mutually exclusive!!) and funny supporting characters and scary villain because he’s super realistic
  • did i mention how impressed i am by the animation???

@ OmgCheckPlease fans

Let me tell y'all about a little comic called TeahouseComic.

A few years ago (I believe around 2010???), there was this lovely little comic called Teahouse. It was adult-oriented, being that it was set in a brothel in some kind of fantasy time period, but the explicit stuff wasn’t available online, and the story was 100% based on character and character development. It was in full color, always, and always beautifully rendered, stunning, gorgeous. I mean, oh my god. (The domain is still up at Teahousecomic.com if you want a look at what I mean).

The comic was started by two lovely young ladies, both of whom were in school/worked full time. As a team, they were known as Emirian. Because of the nature of the comic, they only went by E and CC, individually. They co-wrote the comic, planned the story together, did the script and traded duties with drawing, inking, coloring, etc. The work was about half and half between them, and they made stunning work. Funny and heartwrenching and sexy and beautiful.

The comic was free. 100% free on their website. They had a domain (still up) and hosted the comic there. Just a few banner ads on the side (for other webcomics) and a shop section. The shop sold print copies of the chapters and a few little bits of merch. They didn’t really make money off the comic at all–even when they started going to conventions to promote. Maybe a touch of profit, but they usually just broke even. The comic itself was totally free, and you only needed to buy the print copies if you wanted to see the explicit stuff and extras.

Now, they originally set a weekly update schedule for themselves. As in, one page every week. But I remind you: these ladies worked, went to school, had families. Oftentimes the updates wouldn’t come on the Thursday planned. Closer to Friday. And fans, in the beginning, were very kind about it.

Later on, as their lives got busier, they started attending cons, one of them got a better and more demanding job, some medical issues happened, they couldn’t do updates regularly anymore. They apologized profusely every time, tried to plan and give dates and generally be as honest as possible. But fans got frustrated. They started getting hate from the fans, calling them lazy, calling them horrible, all kinds of awful things I don’t want to repeat.

People who claimed to be fans started shitting on Emirian because they couldn’t update more often. The comic was still free. There were no paywalls, no subscriptions needed, nothing. Patreon wasn’t even a thing yet. But people got angry and started treating the creators, whose work they claimed to love, like shit because they couldn’t handle a weekly update. They had to take hiatuses, and yes, it was frustrating and sad, but it was understandable. And free.

In 2014, both creators were at a point where they could no longer continue the comic. CC was in school pretty much double time, and E had a full time job as an animator. Even working together, they just couldn’t handle the burden of the comic any more. They posted an apology, and made posts on the site finishing the story they’d written. The site is still up, and looking at it now for this still breaks my heart. People weren’t surprised they couldn’t continue it. Some people were bitter and some angry, some felt their hatred had been justified. Most of us were just heartbroken.

Emirian had given us something wonderful, and when life got in the way, some of the ‘fans’ responded with hatred and bullshit. It was unjustified and shitty. I get the frustration, but they didn’t deserve the hate. They’re busy people with busy lives, giving us a beautiful comic completely free.

So how does this connect to OMGCP?

Ngozi is doing this comic, alone. She is planning, writing, scripting, storyboarding, drawing, inking, coloring, publishing, and promoting this, all on her own. Plus the blog posts. Plus the twitter. All on top of her day to day work, her daily life. For free.

I’ve seen a few people now trashing her for asking for donations or not updating often. Just outright hating on her. Why?

Why do you feel entitled to more updates? From a woman working hard to bring us this beautiful thing for free, while also working hard full time on her own shit? I remind you that the kickstarter is for the Year Two book. “It’s a big sum she’s asking for!!!!” Printing is expensive as fuck, especially for comics, especially for full color comics, especially for indie comics, especially for large quantities of comics. And she’s not asking you alone to pay the whole bill.

You don’t HAVE to be a patron on Patreon. You don’t HAVE to donate to the kickstarter. The comic is still free online. You can still read it, for free, then go to your blog and shit on the keyboard to hate OMGCP or Ngozi herself. Without paying a dime. Congrats.

Or, you can be Not a dick, and read it when it updates, keeping in mind that comic books are usually TEAM projects, and this is a personal project by ONE person in her SPARE TIME, that she is only being paid for by the generosity of her fans on Patreon. No one is being forced to give their money. And guess what? If you’re donating, and you’re not happy with what you’re getting? You can stop donating.

In essence, I want to remind you:

-Art is really, really hard
-Comics especially are labor intensive as fuck
-Ngozi is giving us an incredible thing, for free
-In her spare time
-Artists deserve to be paid for their work
-Even when things are busy.

I don’t want to see what happened to Teahouse happen to OMGCP as well. I’m so, so glad that Patreon exists now, and Kickstarter, so that OMGCP has more of a chance. But please don’t be a jerk about the fact that there is a Kickstarter or a Patreon. You’re not obligated to donate, and artists are not slaves to your schedule. Quite frankly Ngozi is handling all this beautifully. She’s keeping us updated, keeping her promises, and telling us everything she possibly can, on top of giving us a heartfelt, adorable, beautiful, hilarious comic. With extras.

Honestly? I think she deserves every penny she can get.

In light of the bad decisions made in the new killing joke movie, and the corresponding negativity surrounding the dc animation, I’d like to point out all the positive things that came from the DCAU and other animated projects.

But first:

Batman the animated series is SO IMPORTANT to the history of animation. Its tone and popularity mad way for all of the wonderful cartoons of the current decade. BtAS is one of the shows that gave animation, other than Disney, a fighting chance. It challenged the dynamic of animated television being “just for kids” and gave us wonderful, complex, and thought provoking stories. I will stand by its influence to my dying breath.

Now that that’s out of the way, an actual list.

-Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as the Joker.

You cannot deny that Conroy is a damn good Batman, and Hamill is a FANTASTIC joker. They are iconic in the roles. When I heard that they were reprising their parts in Justice League Action (along with Clancy Brown), I was ecstatic. Both of them are living legends.

-“I am vengeance. I am the night. I am Batman!”

-Small time crime

Something that’s often overlooked in comics in general are the more average criminals. I love a good supervillain as much as the next girl, but BtAS episodes like P.O.V, and Appointment in Crime Alley are fantastic watches. They give us a better look at less glamorous super criminals which is REALLY refreshing.

-Respecting origins

Beware the Grey Ghost. Just Beware the Grey Ghost. It treats a kinda hokey premise with the respect and dignity it needed, to look back on how far the genre has come. Damn if you don’t get a bit teary eyed watching it.

The same principal in the Justice League Episode Legends, which is loving tribute to silver age comics. If you’re a fan of that time period, please go watch this.

-Renee Montoya

I’m in love with her fuck.
But really, she was a fantastic introduction to the universe, and a Hispanic protagonist for once.

-Harley Quinn

Yeah ya’ll knew this one was coming. Look, even if you don’t like Harley, you can’t deny that her creation was damn awesome, especially since she’d stuck around to this day. The episode Mad Love really shows how fucked up their relationship is, and treats it as such. Hell. Yes.

-Mr. Freezes’s backstory/ Nora Fries

That revamped backstory is another one that wriggled its way into the mainstream. Fighting for the life of a loved one is already painful, but having your freedom ripped away, and any chance at your loved one’s survival is even more heartbreaking.

-Baby Doll

Both of her episodes deal with disabilities… Hear me out.
Because of her appearance, altered by an illness that makes her never age physically, she has issues being taken seriously for her work, having relationships, being a member of society, and letting go of the past. She’s lost so much that her physical disability that she has trouble coping and ends up with a mental disability as well (I’m not sure what but you can form your own opinion). Putting this character on the small screen is an example of how a character can mean something to someone, even if there’s no direct correlation.

-Mask of the Phantasm

I don’t care what you’re doing go and watch this move. I swear it’s amazing. The joker is amazing the storytelling is amazing, Andrea is amazing, the Phantasm is amazing, the soundtrack is amazing, EVERYTHING is amazing. We get a good female character, who not only shows the fallibility of Batman, but has her own issues to deal with that hurt her more than they hurt Bruce. Even though the Joker is a villain, he doesn’t totally steal the spotlight. We have a great mystery, especially with the target audience, and a natural set of flashbacks detailing the Bats origin.

-Static Shock

All of it. All of Static Shock. I don’t actually now how to break this down into bullet points but STATIC MUTHAFUCKN SHOCK.
In all seriousness, I have a huge soft spot for this cartoon, because it’s what got me into comics in the first place, but Static/Virgil, and the whole show really, is representation sorely needed. I saw so many black kids dressed up like him that Halloween because they all wanted to be a hero.
This show dealt with some shit too. When we find out Richie’s father is a racist, it really hits home how friendships can be torn apart through bigotry, even if it’s not direct. It handled guns well, especially for younger children. I could quote Static’s lesson at the end verbatim for over 5 years. They deal with drugs, homelessness, and multiple types of racism, with quite a bit of tact, and are a good way to introduce the serious issues to kids.
Not to mention that he would have slipped under the radar without this show. I very much doubt h would have gotten a New 52 relaunch without the success of this show.
Just. Static Shock.

-One of the best Superman origin stories to date

That origin is very highly regarded as the most faithful adaptations of all time. Though it didn’t introduce anything new, it holds up and stands out over the course of time.

-Making Lois Lane a badass

(Confession: I’m 100% convinced that they saw April O’Neill, shrugged, and said take what’s good about her and chuck it into Lois. I’m aware I have no evidence bite me. (Yes I’m aware it’s technically the other way around))
But really, Lois was fukin badass. She was always chasing her story, passionate about everything she did, worked hard to maintain her success, and treated Superman as a person. Even if Lois got herself in perilous situations she had a reason to be there. Whether it be chasing a story, or fighting for an interview Lois always had some form of agency. She was kidnaped because of Superman, sure, but she made the choice to be connected to him with that interview, and eventual relationship.

-Speed Demons

In a nutshell, Flash is a bit of a showoff, but it’s part of his style and throws off his competitors/adversaries. I like that it also shows Superman isn’t above having a little fun for fun’s sake.

-Livewire

You cannot deny that Leslie Willis is just flat out cool. Though she never made it as big as Harley, she did appear in Supergirl, and continues to be a superman villain in mainstream comics today.

-WAIT I TOTALLYFORGOT KYLE RAYNER WAS IN SUPERMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES WTF

I JUST FOUND THIS WHEN I WAS LOOKING STUFF UP FOR THIS LIST I TOTALLY FORGOT I LOVE IT OMG
Sorry

-Terry McGinnis

Batman Beyond was just pure quality, like, I don’t even know how to describe it. I mean, Terry’s lasted this long, and like Static got a comic reboot.

-Diversity

I know it’s not enough, but the DCAU Justice League had 2 women, one of whom was Hispanic, and a black man. It was a step up from superfriends and gave the same needed representation that Static Shock provided.

-Continuity

Honestly, so much of this is just flat out continuity porn. Like the first episode of the second season of Justice League is almost a finale to StAS. It has quite a few callbacks that gave fans something to chew on.

-Reasonable discussion of religion

In the Terror Beyond from Justice League season 2, Wonder Woman and Hawkgirl talk about their religions with actual tact and grace. There’s a whole heck of a lot of tolerance and (minor spoilesrish thing) Hawkgirl does not challenge Grundys beliefs. Despite disagreeing, seeing that his ideas won’t hurt anyone she allows him to slip away thinking his soul is waiting. It’s very mature and really shows what the universe is capable of.

-HEREAFTER

Tears. Nothing but tears. I’m crying just thinking about it. One of the best Funeral scenes. “Justice doesn’t always have to come from the darkness”. TEARS.

-A believable shock reveal

Hawkgirl betraying the team feels completely genuine, fucking sad, but totally possible in the universe. This beats out every SHOCK TWIST I’ve seen in the past 6 years. I feel like this treated its audience like adults, and I’m grateful for it.

-The CADMUS arch.

Amanda Waller, Question, Captain Atom’s “Betrayal”, Lex’s manipulation, Doctor Hamilton’s betrayal, the callback to A Better World, the romances between Huntress/Question, and Ollie/Dinah, The superfriends reference in Ultimen, the Suicide Squad in Task force X, AMANDA WALLER, giving the spotlight to lesser known heroes, the political discussion, and THE EPILOGUE.

-Epilogue

This gets it’s own bullet because it was a masterpiece of storytelling. It NAILED Batman’s compassion, had a reference to MoTP, served as a much needed finale for Batman Beyond, devolved Terry beautifully, AMANDA FUCKIN WALLER, and a nice side message about how family can be forged.

And that’s just stopping at the basics of the DCAU, not including Teen Titans, Young Justice, a slew of animated movies and other TV, and all the comic tie ins.

I have strong opinions on the way people are taking the female characters in the animated universe and reducing them to “Things for Bruce to feel MANLY about”. The only one of FIVE in depth onscreen romances that even comes close to this is Barbra, so I understand why people are mad.

Look, I’m not saying we shouldn’t critique, we should always seek to improve, but ignoring any and all good Bruce Timm has done undermines media as a whole. Should Barbra and Bruce be fucking in TKJ? Probably not. Should they have been fucking in TAS? Nope. But saying that the “DCAU needs to die” is shitting on years of animation and comic book history.

faeriemeliorn  asked:

for the ship thing: clizzy!!

aaaaahhh omg okay this got kinda long i never seem to get asked abt. my girls lmao i went crazy yikes

Who kisses who first

clary lmao. izzy’s been dropping all these lines that could be taken as flirting but could also just be izzy being izzy, and clary honestly has no idea whether izzy is gay or not, and quite frankly with everything else going on she’s not looking to fall hopelessly in love right now- except.

izzy’s hair is so shiny and it shifts like water and falls into her eyes when she laughs. and her eyes are so dark and full of mysteries that poke at the edges of clary’s consciousness at 2am when she’s trying to sleep. and her voice is like……what clary imagines starlight would sound like, if it could speak. and before clary can even berate herself for being so damn thirsty when she’s just stumbled headfirst into a secret supernatural war she’s???? hanging on every word because izzy is also passionate and bold and funny and kind and she’s such a nerd goddamn when she talks about science she gets really animated and uses a lot of excited hand gestures and bounces on her toes and clary feels her breath catch in her throat every time she thinks about how fierce isabelle lightwood is in her love for her brothers

and one day izzy greets her with ‘that shirt makes your boobs look so good !!!!’ instead of ‘good morning’ and clary just gives up with a frustrated ‘dammit’ and leans in and presses their lips together. when they pull apart, izzy grins and says ‘finally’. and clary pushes her up against the wall and proceeds to kiss her breathless.

Who makes breakfast

izzy is officially banned from making food, ever. but like, clary’s not that big a fan of cooking either so usually they just steal cereal from the kitchen and eat it out of the box with their hands 

(jace and alec hate this. it’s so unsanitary and they hate it so much but they also lowkey can’t be bothered arguing with the girls about it so alec just calls magnus for emergency breakfast dates every other day and jace kinda just sulks and makes toast lmao)

Who says I love you first

izzy! they both say it all the time before they’re dating, and once they start dating they’re like ‘well we already know we love each other, we say it on like a daily basis why would it be awkward now?’ (for real they’re not v. angsty they’re just nerds in love and they tell each other all the time)

but like pre-dating, izzy is the one who says it first and it’s like. really important to clary? because after she came out as a lesbian her few female friends kind of avoided casual ‘i love you’s and it wasn’t a huge thing but it still stung? the first time izzy says it to clary is like. they’re texting, and clary mentions alec being gay and the convo goes

IZZY: you don’t have a problem with it, do you?
CLARY: nah are you kidding lmao i’m like the hugest lesbian :)
IZZY: omG REALLY
IZZY: s a m e
CLARY: WAIT REALLY
CLARY: OMG MY GOD YASSSS
CLARY: leSBIANS UNITE
IZZY: oh my god i love you so much :’)

Who holds the other one during a storm

izzy hates thunderstorms, they make her anxious and antsy because she’s naturally on edge a lot of the time anyway due to her training? so the extra sudden loud noises and stuff just makes her stress levels spike and she goes on high alert. not so much afraid as irritated and snappish and she paces a lot, until clary pulls her into a hug and they just lie down together and snuggle until izzy feels calm again.

What their song is 

okay so clary has a Playlist™ because she’s a giant sap like that, her fave #clizzy songs are:

hazy // rosi golan
bright // echosmith
somewhere in neverland // all time low

What they do when one of them is upset

when clary is upset izzy basically just puts a sketchpad in her hands, strikes the most ridiculous pose she can think of and goes ‘drAW ME like one of your french girls’ and it always gets a smile out of clary. this is usually followed by clary drawing izzy in super crazy poses and doing weird faces and stuff until both of them are laughing to much to even remember why she was upset
(or if she’s too upset to draw, izzy just sits with her and gives her lots of forehead and nose kisses and lets her wallow in it until she’s ready to talk about whatever’s bothering her)

when izzy is upset clary is very physical in her comforting. hugs, hand holding, backrubs, and distracts her with conversation. tells stories about her childhood, asks izzy about her memories of growing up, and eventually she’ll ask izzy what’s going on and izzy will almost always tell her

alternatively if they’re both miserable they just lie down on izzy’s bed with their shoulders touching and their fingers intertwined between them and sort of collectively stew in self-pity and bitterness and sadness until they curl up in each others arms and sleep

Who kisses more roughly 

okay but they’re both pretty rough??? like sure they have their cute tender kisses but they’re also both super passionate and like. phew. intense makeouts are intense lmao. hands in hair, hands under shirts, clary in izzy’s lap or izzy pressing clary into a wall, basically they have a lot of feelings and they’re both really gay and like to kiss each other with everything they have

What their dates consist of

they don’t really do like romantic date nights tbh, they go to downworlder raves sometimes (thank u for the invites magnus) which izzy loves and clary enjoys because okay, it’s fun enough but izzy always looks so vibrant and alive when she’s dancing and it’s the most captivating thing in the known universe. and other than that their ‘date nights’ are mosting just watching movies on clary’s laptop, making out in izzy’s room, there was one memorable occasion when izzy dragged clary out to spy on alec and magnus and they got found out and it somehow ended with alec and izzy both sitting on their asses in a water fountain, half glaring and half laughing, while clary and magnus looked on in confusion

Who knew they would always be together

clary. izzy, for all her bravado is super insecure about her self-worth? like she’s confident and comfy with her body and she can get whatever she wants with her dazzling personality but she also kinda lowkey feels like people get tired of her after a while? so she tries to live in the moment and not think about the future, but she can’t help believe clary is it for her, because clary is so certain of their future together. like clary is so utterly convinced that izzy is the One™ she always casually talks about ‘when we get married’ and all that.

What they talk about at 1am

really random shit like sometimes clary stays at the institute and sometimes she stays with luke and jocelyn but even if she does that they still text until like 2am and they have the greatest late night existential talks lmao

What their favourite holiday traditions are 

okay but at christmas clary keeps mistletoe on her person at all times and she just dangles it above people’s heads and goes now kiss (this is how jace and meliorn kiss for the first time lmao yikes) and every single time she sees izzy she holds it up and she’s like ‘u have to kiss me now sorry i don’t make the rules’

izzy likes valentine’s day and always keeps clary in bed for snuggling and/or other Activities until well into the afternoon, then they go out and walk around the city together and just do mundane stuff all evening and it’s really nice and peaceful :’)

Whos the hopeless romantic 

both of them tbh

Who says sorry after an argument  

they both do? like they don’t really have big fights but after a disagreement they’re always like ‘okay we need to talk about this so it doesn’t fester’ and they both apologize and explain why they feel the way they do and talk through it. heALTHY HAPPY WLW RELATIONSHIPS PLS

Bonus: who flirts the most

i z z y  omg she’s so smooth (clary likes to try out every corny pickup line she’s ever heard and izzy rolls her eyes at each one but lowkey loves it)

Sailor Moon Crystal... Take 3!

New Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3!

Alright I know some of you asked about what I think of the new season since I was a pretty big anti-crystal person thus far…I should do a proper review with proper screenshots but I’m a bit lazy but overall…

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Season 3! Everything is just SO MUCH BETTER. I know that’s not saying a lot considering the really shitty quality of season 1 and 2 on all fronts–story, characterization, art and animation. But so far, Cryastal 3 quality holds up to the better animated shows today. It’s the show we should have gotten FROM THE VERY BEGINNING of this whole entire reboot.

So let’s begin with all the things that they fixed!
