Shrek
#13
Last Monday at 6:00 PM

Shrek is love, Shrek is life. Memes aside, this movie is legitimately good. There's a reason it spawned three sequels (and possibly a fourth?). Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy are a great pair, and never stop firing off jokes. There's a lot of (not so) subtle world-building with the fairytales, that admittedly gets more fleshed out as the series goes on.

Primal (Season 1)
#12
01/10/2022

I mention it more than necessary in this episode, but I'm in awe of how much emotion the characters can portray with almost no dialogue between the two main characters. Not only that, it's pretty cool to see a dinosaur fight stuff. And then we have the surprise cliffhanger, that can really open up the world.

Death Note
#11
01/03/2022

Light deserved this, right? I'm not sure that the ends justify the means in this scenario. I'd be terrified of even touching something called the 'Death Note'. That's bad news. I do like the dynamic between Light and L. By far the best part of this show, seeing them go blow for blow. 37 episodes is a weird choice, but it works.

Gravity Falls

12/27/2021

What an incredibly strange show. I see why so many people like it. There's mystery, romance, comedy, action, and so much more. Most of the characters are very likable, and each one has a unique story. The writers always keep you guessing. And they ended it with an insane multi-part finale. But one of the best aspects to the show, is how much speculation is induced, and that's what I'll be diving into.

A Christmas Carol
#16
12/24/2021

No one wants to believe they'd become Scrooge, but most of us never experience this type of wealth. I'm not defending Scrooge, but it's just sad that the people around him weren't able to get through to him. He was already too far gone by that point. It took a paranormal experience to fundamentally change his overall mindset. Side note: Jim Carrey killed this role.

Klaus
#15
12/23/2021

Sometimes you have to re-evaluate your tradition. New year, new me. Klaus is definitely NOT Santa, but helps Jesper change the town for the better. I really like Klaus's outfit in the end. Can you believe these kids were getting presents everyday? Then the gesture got nerfed, and they only get presents every Christmas.

Tokyo Godfathers
#14
12/22/2021

From the jump, you fall in love with our homeless trio. They all have colorful personalities, and different reasons why they're in the position they're in. Even with some friction, they still clearly care for each other. The general public doesn't always treat them with respect, but good people are actually more present than you'd originally believe. That's really the key to their success with this return mission.

Polar Express
#13
12/21/2021

I remember our school librarian reading this picture book to our class back in elementary school. I don't remember if this movie was out by that point. Anyway, this is an animated Christmas classic. There are definitely some questionable choices made in this film, but I think those are outweighed by its delightfulness.

The Grinch
#12
12/20/2021

We've see a couple Grinch movies at his point, and this one is a great addition. We get a good mix of heart and comedy, while telling a nice Grinch story. I think this is a good choice, for anyone wanting a modern animated Christmas movie. So many characters stand on their own two feet, and are a joy to watch interact with each other.

Christmas Week 2021
#11
12/14/2021

This is our first Christmas here at Cartoon Season, so I wanted to do something special. Each weekday leading up to Christmas day, I'll be discussing a different animated Christmas movie. All that's left is to bake some cookies. Question: anyone out there actually drink warm milk?

Haikyu!! (Season 3)
#10
12/13/2021

This is kind of like David and Goliath. Sure, Shiratorizawa are really tall, and powerful, and are definitely the favorites to win. But Karasuno are full of tricks, and are kinda reckless, but are still able to pull off the upset. Shoutout to Tsukishima who really grew into a key player, and was the MVP for the win. Now let's see how they do on the National stage...

Demon Slayer (Season 1)
#9
12/08/2021

Protect Nezuko at all costs. Even though she can probably take care of herself. Tanjiro does his best either way, constantly beheading stronger and stronger demons. And we can't leave out Zenitsu and Inosuke. I can't wait to see how this group develops, especially since they have such different fighting styles. Side note: these Hashira are next level, and I hope we see them in action more.

Your Lie in April
#8
12/06/2021

What a show. What. A. Show. This was a ride. I was all in from the very beginning. I wasn't expecting it to be this sad. The mom sucks, and absolutely doesn't get redeemed. The Kosei-Kaori relationship was the biggest rollercoaster of any anime I've seen. If ya'll like this, please go watch I Want to Eat Your Pancreas. That movie has the same story as this show, and they are both 10/10.

Arcane (Season 1)
#10
12/01/2021

Anybody here actually play League of Legends? Or are you just here for the show? I'm honestly surprised its taken this long for an adaptation like this, given how popular League of Legends is. Give them all the time they need, because this show is a banger. Quite possibly the best cartoon to air this year. The story, characters, art style, etc are all top notch. Will this make me play League of Legend? No. Will I be impatiently waiting for season 2? Absolutely.


The Mitchells vs The Machines
#6
11/29/2021

All kids eventually leave the nest, to become their own person. Katie does this in a very creative way, but to her dad's disappointment. It's tough to be passionate about your daughter's tech-based dreams, when you don't even understand how to use the browser on your phone. There's obviously a disconnect there. Oh, and then there's also the end of the world, caused by an A.I. uprising. Who could've guessed?


Wish Dragon
#5
11/22/2021

This man stumbles upon a genie, and doesn't immediately wish to be rich. Absolutely crazy. He also has been trying his whole life to reunite with Li Na, but doesn't really use a wish to accomplish that either. It's like he's never watched Aladdin. Din eventually figures it out though, and he changes the lives of the people around him.


Haikyu!! (Season 2)
#4
11/15/2021

This show is the embodiment of hype. Every play has me on the edge of my seat. I feel like if they lose, I lose. But unfortunately, we saw a lot of loss this season. A lot of laps. They are much stronger as a result, and these new weapons are dangerous. I'm honestly just glad they finally buried Oikawa. That man got on my nerves like no other.


Amphibia (Season 1-2)
#3
11/08/2021

I'm pretty sure Anne went Super Saiyan. I wasn't expecting that. I also wasn't expecting Marcy to get iced like that. Other than the absolutely insane True Colors finale, the show is really funny and charming. They really made the Plantars feel like an authentic family, who always have each other's backs. I don't know where the third (and final?) season will end up, but I'm sure it'll be incredible.


Haikyu!! (Season 1)
#2
11/01/2021

You guys see that quick attack? I don't know how accurate this show is compared to real-life volleyball, but if it's similar, volleyball may be the best sport on Earth. My whole body tenses up whenever I watch one of their matches. There's a ton of things that make this show great. I'll touch on the hype moments, the importance of the rivalries, and break down each player on Karasuno's team.


Teen Titans
#1
10/25/2021

I loved watching Teen Titans as a kid, getting hype every time the theme song came on. Do y'all remember when they'd play the Japanese version of the theme song? I think that was only for certain episodes...or maybe it was random. Anyway - I'll start by talking about my favorite storylines in the show: Raven, Slade, and Terra. Not only how they stack up individually, but also how they intertwine with each other. Then I'll discuss what a 6th and final season would even look like, and all the popular fan theories.
