adult animation appreciation post bc we’ve got some good shows lately

Bojack Horseman

a lot of us know it and love it, but for the ones who never got around to it, PLEASE watch it at some point in your life. it has so many good storylines centered around depression, addiction, sexism, repercussions of child abuse, and the daily struggles of living in this messed up world that we all know and can relate to. it’ll punch you in the gut with some of the most unique storytelling you’ll see in your life

Tuca & Bertie

created by the lead character designer of Bojack, this show may seem like a spinoff from the look but it isn’t in the slightest. created and starring amazing women and letting women be funny in their own unique way that feels so genuine and following the story of these two crazy bird friends, I cannot tell you the emotional rollercoaster this one took me on. our mains struggle with anxiety and sexual harassment, with some great queer rep, and the stories are so fun and inventive that you can’t help but have a blast

Final Space

I could talk about this show for DAYS, but I already have in this post so I won’t go on a massive rant rn. it may look like a normal little scifi comedy show at the beginning, but this show’ll blow you away with plot for days. if you want an action show that has consistent storylines, here ya go. it’s so heartfelt, and it has stories revolving around coping with loss and loneliness by building new connections and new families, and it rips your heart out while leaving you shook over how great the animation and the soundtrack is

Castlevania

this one is insane. it is super gorey and violent with tons of swearing, but if you like that stuff you’ll love this one. vampires and action with some stunning animation drags you in quickly, and the plotline is actually really good and you’ll end up feeling for the characters so hard. their struggles are so investing and even if there’s blood every second, it still manages to hook you quickly and wanna know what happens next. still haven’t seen the new season yet, but I bet it’s great

Primal

created by Genndy Tartakovsky, the legend behind Samurai Jack, so you already know this one is good. it’s a short miniseries but whoo boy is it good. the animation is so nice, and this one is so unique. following the story of a caveman and a dinosaur becoming unlikely companions after loss, there is no dialogue. that makes it such a unique experience and it gets so emotional with some pure raw emotions that just crush you

The Midnight Gospel

the newest addition to the family, created by Pendleton War, the genius behind Adventure Time, this one messed me up in ways that I can’t even put into words yet. it’s an animated podcast with crazy trippy animation behind it and holy shit it is so unique. it takes time to process everything going on, but once in you get in the flow of it it hits you with emotions. following a guy who goes into a simulator to different worlds to interview people for his spacecast, expect for some great discussions of the struggles of hoping, coping with loss, and meditation. take your time with this one, it is so beautiful and funny

adult western animation is finally swinging up, and these are only some of the good ones. thought it would be good to advertise how not adult animation is ugly and just gross humor all the time, because people are finally telling stories that only adults can understand and relate to and feel, and I for one am absolutely here for it

Pairing: Bucky x Reader

Warnings: ABO, pregnant reader, overprotective soft Bucky, a smattering of dirty talk

Anonymous requested, “Can I get Number 7 “Put the glass down. You are pregnant with my kids and I’m not going to let you self-destruct because you can’t cope with _______ ” with Bucky?”

You had James Buchanan Barnes wrapped around your finger. 

A fact that you and Natasha were currently snickering about as you stood near the bar. About twenty minutes ago you’d sent Bucky on a wild goose chase around the party, looking for hors'devours that he would approve of after he’d snatched the previous plate from your hand.

Yes, the Winter Soldier was overprotective of you.

There is a primal reassurance in being touched, in knowing that someone else, someone close to you, wants to be touching you. There is a bone-deep security that goes with the brush of a human hand, a silent, reflex-level affirmation that someone is near, that someone cares.

I really love Genndy’s Primal so far. The weight and power in every movement, the brutal action, the heft to every emotion without saying a single word, and ooooh my GOSH, Scott Will’s backgrounds just entrance me. I redrew a screenshot of the first episode so it’s more Jack-like. Please give it a watch.
