WAZZZZUUUUPPP Ladies and gents we are back with a episode me and Nuansay have been looking forward to recording for some time now.
On this episode we are going to be reviewing and discussing the extremely popular and successful Avatar cartoon which is now more commonly being dubbed as Amerime (Anime inspired Cartoon).
Starting off with Avatar: The Last Airbender
Then, since it’s relevant we also give our thoughts on the (EPIC FAIL) Last Airbender live action movie.
Then lastly I go on a bit of a ramble about the growing relationship and inspiration between Japanese and American animation…in regards to animation outsourcing, collaborative projects and how I feel the irrelevance of animation borders needs to be promoted
Yeah it’s quite a preachy ramble I admit but hey, maybe you might agree with me in some small way…or maybe not…who knows
And lastly…..sorry folks but due to the length of our Legend of Korra discussion we have decided to make it a separate podcast that will follow shortly……..to be fair I think our thoughts on TLA should have some time to sizzle on the interwebs before we get into Korra anyhow
That's all for now folks..............PEACEOUT
Well, I'm gonna say a piece about this episode......
Let me first say that Avatar: The Last Airbender is not only my favorite Nickelodeon (or Nicktoons as they call it) title but my favorite Amerime, next to The Boondocks being second. I personally gave it A HALL OF FAME. It's something that I think for both anime and cartoon fans. Oh......and Toph is also my top favorite character on that show. That girl don't even have to see to kick somebody's ass.
The movie, however.......Yeah, I said enough about that movie. It can go fuck itself. I don't want to say anymore about that.
Also, the studio MOI Animation also did the work of the second season of The Boondocks. Just throwing it out there.
I completely agree about your rating. Avatar: The Last Airbender is a cartoon that, we jsut don't see very often, it does so much really well that it is hard to find faults and it is just a lot of fun. I have not seen the movie(god, thank you), but my condolences go to everyone who has. If I ever meet Shamaylan, I am going to throw a spear at him.......
Yeah, i'm glad you guys like TLA too. It really is great show and i can't wait for your thoughts on Korra as i do feel like one of the few that didn't really enjoy it as much as everyone else.
Don, i do hear you on the perception of anime and cartoons (it was a little preachy lol) but i'm just not sure if people will make the effort to see anime as just another form of animation. It just looks too different from everything else. So until theres so much amerime on TV that people can't tell the difference between it and anime people as always going to be bias....and yes american fans love it when their own do good like when stunt doubles in karate films do all the work and the mass people think its the american actor that did all the technical stuff so i see what you mean in that respect as well.
Nice one for those links Jon....Great times...Love Toph to death!!
Theres 3 ways
The first i'd recommend is to get the STITCHER RADIO APP for your iphone and then just put planettyro (one word) in the search field. I'd recommend this app the most cause you can listen to all the spill podcasts and other popular radio stations with this app as well...an all-in-one solution
Second way is to use the free PODCAST app made by apple and again search for planettyro (oneword).
Third - which i should do regularly from now on CLICK THIS FOR DIRECT LINK of this episode on iPhone / anything else
Something I just remembered. Avatar would have gone into my Hall of Fame if only the finale didn't have a bit of a deus ex machina. I think it was a giant lion-turtle or something that kinda came out of nowhere to share its wisdom with Aang. I really want to put this in my Hall of Fame, so if anyone can clear this up I'd appreciate it.
