Cartoon Network has this habit of systematically giving me enough episodes to get really in to a show then cancelling it on me. This show really got me when I realized everyone had hair out of a Tezuka cartoon.
Happy 43rd birthday to the amazing Genndy Tartakovsky, co-creator of Sym-Bionic Titan!
This is the man who also brought you Samurai Jack, Star Wars: Clone Wars, and Dexter’s Laboratory! He worked on The Powerpuff Girls as well. He’s one of the best writers out there.
As you probably know by now, my favorite out of the shows he’s worked on is Sym-Bionic Titan. The visuals and story-telling are just perfect, and the story keeps you wanting more and more. The action scenes are just awesome. The main characters are also very likable, and the antagonists are pretty good as well (though it would’ve been nice to see more of Modula).
The above reasons are why I want to see Sym-Bionic Titan get a continuation. It didn’t really get a fair chance on Cartoon Network, getting moved around constantly and not getting a toy-deal. It’s getting a second chance on Adult Swim, so I really want to take this opportunity to really show the network that Sym-Bionic Titan NEEDS a second season right now. Thanks to Toonami, as each week passes, more fans are joining us in this movement. As soon as the current run finishes on Adult Swim, we’ll be planning mail-days and buy an episode days, so look out for those!
Once again, happy birthday, Genndy Tartakvosky! :)
