reasons to watch Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja!!!
first off, let me just say that I just recently started watching this show and I’m already addicted. (it’s been exactly one week and I’ve already almost finished season 1?? wow)
So what’s rc9gn (aka ninja show) about anyway?
A town called Norrisville has been protected by a ninja for 800 years, but what the citizens of Norrisville do not know is that a new ninja is selected every four years. Randy Cunningham, ninth grade teenager, is the next ninja. Now, Randy must protect Norrisville from the evil plans of the Sorcerer, his ally Hannibal McFist, and Hannibal’s assistant Willem Viceroy.

Reasons to watch:
perfectly balanced humor and action
seriously the humor in this show may seem dumb at first but there’s so many good (bad?) puns and makes fun of itself
dumb, silly, strangely endearing slang that you’ll catch yourself using
great lessons and messages
also, check out that gorgeous animation and background art
the creator of invader zim did a lot of character designs for the show (x)
the characters are unique and you’ll end up loving at least one, if not all of them
Randy and Howard’s friendship has its ups and downs and they tease each other just like real high school age best friends
Viceroy in general I mean can we just take a moment to appreciate him
great voice acting
the cast, crew, and fandom are all so passionate and dedicated
seriously this fandom is one of the nicest I’ve ever come across
also the shipping. there’s so many great ships to ship and, as far as I know, hardly any ship bashing or ship hate in this fandom
did I mention how much the staff loves interacting with the fans?
they put a fan’s song on the show and she got an internship on it (x)
we’re trying really hard to get another season, but that won’t happen without a bigger fanbase, so why not give it a shot?
Honestly, the first episode I saw, I wasn’t sold, but I decided to try watching it again and now here I am, completely and utterly obsessed. My only regret about watching this show is that I didn’t start watching it sooner. So I’m doing what I can to help spread the word about this wonderful show!
You can watch ithere, but if you are able to, please try to support the show in any way you can!
I hope if you read this all the way through, you’ll decide to give it a chance. Thank you for reading!
Decent amount of diversity in the cast, certainly more than a lot of shows can boast
Laughs in the face of the Bechdel test
Kickass female leads
Decent representation of equality in society (and this is across the board - it’s not like just the space cases have evolved to include women in positions of power, you see it in all the different little groups that have formed on earth). There are women in positions of political power, women in STEM fields, warrior women, you name it
Doesn’t shy away from the ugly stuff - yeah, overall, it’s an attractive cast with the usual somewhat unrealistic hygiene for a post-apocalyptic scenario, but we do see slow-healing injuries, mud and grime all over everyone, greasy hair, all that good stuff
Holy genuinely shocking violence on occasion, Batman. Not necessarily what I was expecting - so if you have a faint heart, do be aware of this, but I definitely appreciate that it doesn’t often go for the discretion shot. It keeps you in the moment
It’s kind of like Lost meets Lord of the Flies, in a good way. It keeps you guessing and throws some really shocking things your way
It’s not a constant These Are The Good Guys and These Are The Bad Guys setup - it does really make you think about how circumstances dictate morals, and who you side with can change on a dime, which is pretty cool
Just overall a really good, interesting show, so go watch it. Now. Why aren’t you watching it yet? I’m waiting.
In which Coneflower taps into her gangster past, briefly masquerading through Readwhile Abee using her gang name, “Brother Ralph”; also in this episode, Shotdown, Clooney’s henchrat, channels his powers of dividing by zero to filch the effigy of Margin the Worrier, Readwhile Abee’s patron saint.
As our hero Missed-Highest reels and rants due to the aftereffects of one too many pints of October Ale, Coneflower- I mean, Brother Ralph, assumes control of Readwhile Abee’s provision preparations. Since many paws are needed to tally the vittles, few are left to watch for any potential naughtiness going on within the quiet halls of the Abee. This lull in security gives the villain Shotdown just the opportunity he needs to wreak havoc upon the creatures in their peaceful abode.
Elsewhere, the Vole family ponders how to hide their drug smuggling business from the other woodlanders, but that’s not important enough to go into detail about in a synopsis. And to nobeast’s surprise, Clooney and his horde continue in their epic endeavor to use computer technology correctly and possibly take over Readwhile Abee.
Overall, everybeast struggles to speak English.If you make it through the episode, though, you’ll catch a glimpse of the baddie feared even more than Clooney… Asthma Day Sauce.
I once knew a girl that was anything but normal. She was mysterious and bizarre. People thought she was unearthly. But I knew the truth.
She was magic.
If you knew her like I you’d agree. She was magic, not in the sense that she could levitate objects or turn princes to frogs, but in the sense that everything about her was a mystery. She loved mysteries so much she became one.
Her entire being was entirely curious. From her petite frame to the light blonde tips of her hair. Summing her into a paragraph would be like reading the bible as one sentence. It’s not possible.
