PostSubject: Miraculous Ladybug   7th December 2015, 5:41 am

Spoiler:
 

So Miraculous Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir came out yesterday, so I thought it'd be fitting to start a discussion here. So basically the story takes place in Paris, centered around Marinette Dupain-Cheng, a sweet girl who wants to tell the local popular boy, Adrien Agreste (blonde boy) she likes him but can't. But unbeknownst to everyone (even to Marinette and Adrien), both Marinette and Adrien are local superheroes called Ladybug and Cat Noir who purify people who have been infected with akumas, sent over by the evil Hawkmoth who wants to take over Paris.

Ladybug originally started with this video:


Yeah, it was intended to be an anime, but executives told the creators to make it 3D and tone down any darkness or political themes to make it appeal to kids.

What are my thoughts? I thought it was good! The animation is stunning, the dialogue matches the lip movements perfectly, the voices are great and well cast, and the jokes are actually pretty funny! Plus, I found the transformation phrases ("Spots on!" "Claws out!") to be way better than the ones I read on Tumblr according to some translators ("Transform, Ladybug/Cat Noir!"). I will admit though, it is VERY cliche. Marinette is a girl who loves Adrien, Chloe is the bad girl who hates everyone who goes near Adrien and treats her friend like garbage, Nino is the token black best friend, etc. But honestly? The show's TRYING to have some substance, and I'll give it credit for that. Hey, I'll take this over shows like Breadwinners, Teen Titans Go, Uncle Grandpa, Fanboy and Chum-Chum, or any gross-out comedies any day.

So have you guys seen Ladybug yet? Talk about it here!

Do you have sources to watch it? I've been seeing clips and links to eps here and there but haven't checked out a full episode yet. It looks really neat and super cute! I want to check out the little bit of 2D stuff that they've done as well as the actual show itself. I think it started airing on Nickelodeon for those who have cable. Very Happy

I actually started to watch this today. I have to say its very cute and I'm looking forward to watching more episodes. I'm watching the Korean version with English subs. 

I'm glad that they chose the style they ultimately went with. I find it just works better for the one of the anime.

I watched by curiosity and it's cute, but I have to admit I prefer the old design. The 3D doesn't appeal to me, probably because it's more kid's friendly? The character design were darker in the first video as well and it didn't look as meek as it is right now?

It's cute and funny though, easily watched and it's very happy all around (with some problems to make it relatable) but a bit simple. The transformation scenes are nicer than in many henshin anime.

I'd show this to my sisters any time.

I agree that it could do very well with a darker tone, but I think the 3D grew on me when I got use to watching the 2012 Ninja Turtles show so xD

Yeah. The creator wanted to use a 2D animation style and tackle darker themes, but network executives told him no, and made him use 3D and tone it down so it can appeal to little kids.

I've been watching all day and yesterday! <3 I was watching the progress of this show before it aired then I forgot about it. Then Friday my friend reblogged a fan comic on tumblr. I asked her who these people were and told me it was from Ladybug. I blame her for getting me hooked on this show! I bought the season pass on Itunes. But I'm watching it in French and Korean to catch up with my friend.

I am really enjoying this show. It's giving me everything I want in a magical girl show. It's super cheesy and both genders are working together! I love the love square! I totally ship Bug and Chat. 

It's been confirmed they're working on seasons 2 and 3. Also Toei will be doing an OVA.

Honestly I like the CGI better. While Bug looked cute in 2D I thought Chat looked awful. I'm also glad they changed his personality too. Plus gave him daddy issues. 

As for the dubs. I like all three! I like how all the actors portray the characters.

The theme song is too catchy!

Sorry for all these randoms thoughts. I haven't been this crazy about a show in a long time.   

Final note. Someone needs to slap Chloe. God! She's awful! I get they gave her the typical rich popular girl personality, but I think they're over doing it. They could turn it down a notch.

I do have to agree that I don't like Chat in the 2D animation. He looked weird and also acted more like a pig than anything. I also don't like how Felix acted, like he was better than everyone else and they're supposed to fall for each other? He's so unrelatable.

Exactly why they changed him. They wanted to give Marinette and Adrien better chemistry.

I'm really glad they did, Adrien and Felix are completely different characters and I just don't like Felix. I doubt I would have gotten into the show.

Yeah it's amazing what they did to his character! 

It's a shame we could have gotten a more mature show. But I guess it's hard to sell a show when your characters are dressed like a ladybug and a cat. But that's what fanfictions and roleplays are for!

Screw you, Nickelodeon. They cancelled the show! And it only aired 12 episodes! TWELVE!!! Why, Nickelodeon?! Why do you keep giving new shows the shaft?! Stop clinging to stuff like Spongebob, Breadwinners, Alvin, Fairly Oddparents, and every teenybopper sitcom ever!! You wonder why nobody watches you anymore!!! Angry

They're airing it on Nicktoons on Saturdays right now. Last night it was Horrificator. I'm praying next Saturday they show a brand new episode. I bought the season pass on iTunes. I want my episodes.

I just want to watch the Mime again. The Miraculousubs hasn't gotten to The Mime yet.

Yep.

I can't remember when, but they set it up where they aired on both channels then one weekend ML was gone. Then a few weeks back they brought it back, but on Nicktoons. They reaired Darkblade and last weekend they reaired Timebreaker. 

I am getting really annoyed with Nick at the moment. At least you can buy the show on Itunes or Amazon. In May DVDs are coming out. Part one which will contain six episodes I believe. I'm buying the DVDs as well. 

Have you tried the French dub? Miraculousubs has subbed most of them. They used to have a youtube channel, but Zag took them down.

I watched all the episodes in 2 days I think, the show is cute, for some reason the 3D didn't bothered me that much, but i still don't get the big hype on tumblr xD, I think I will continue to watch this show when season 2 starts, from what I read is in production.

Sometimes people just get caught up in a show. Every fandom has those fans. I'm ML trash and I am proud of it. XD

Miraculous Ladybug is one of my favs! I watched all the episodes earlier last month and lovveeddd it to bits! Currently making a print for a con I'm going to at the end of the month. And yeah, it's really cliche but it's addicting somehow? I mostly watch it to see Adrien and Marinette/ Ladybug and Cat Noir interact. And it seems like season 2 is going to have more plot related things so I'm really excited!
Also, I really like how the fight scenes are done. They're always varied, and I think it's cool how it's less of a "I'm stronger than you" set up so much as "How can I outsmart them?" 

Also...

I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHATEVER IT IS YOU ARE WORKING FOR. THE CON.

And YES! I Agree 100%! I love the animation, its so smooth and some of the best 3d animation in a tv series I've ever seen. The fight scenes are fun and enjoyable, chat's goofy puns and one liners, Ladybug always being slightly annoyed with him but thoroughly trusting and depending on him as a partner.

AAAAHH:

This person is uploading the English episodes that have aired in the AU. Both the UK and the AU are using the Nick dub. Enjoy!

I watched Origins in english the other night cause I was curious, it was pretty good! Though I still don't like Alya's and Nino's voices...way to forced. Marinette's isn't bad tho.

God I love Alya's voice. I love the slang she uses to! hahaha!

The only English dub voice I don't like is Nino's as well. I don't mind the bro talk because let's face Nino isn't fleshed out as Alya's is. I hope Nino is shown more in season two.

By the way I loved Hawkmoth's transformation phrase in the English dub. XD

I hope Nick starts showing new episodes again. I bought the season pass on Itunes and I really wanted to be able to marathon season one all at once. Because the dub is pretty solid. There's some strange translations here and there, but I can live with it. I love the nicknames Chat uses in the English dub. 

I wonder if Nick is just taking a break because they are updating ML section on their website. Last week they had a cheesy video about the akuma outfits (It's so cheesy I turned it off one second in. XD). Korea took a long hiatus and brought it back with Origins. Also when looking at the Nicktoon schedule last week I saw on a random day they aired ML back to back like around two PM. So I guess that means they're not afraid of it. lol

Brit told me about this show. I've watched a couple of episodes but I need to catch up >.< being the snob I am though I'd prefer to watch it in French if poss. 

I will admit I'm not a fan of her costume...it seems minimal effort. But I do love how the cat persona was given to a boy. A kitty cat is usually associated with a female.

...and I'm really liking the original anime style...

Miraculous Subs has most of the episodes translated from French. But the ones that are missing you can watch in English and its not too awful.

There are other subbers on youtube that have done the other eps so I'm sure you'll be able to find all the French episodes.

YALL MADE ME BINGE WATCH THIS SHOW NOW IM MIRACULER TRASH XDDDDD

No, but seriously, I love, love this show. Yes, I know it's somewhat cliche but I think it has charm and potential to create an interesting story. I especially enjoy Ladybug and Chat Noir's relationship and how they trust one another so effortlessly. It's  cool knowing that their respective couterpart and hero personas like one another, though I'm wondering if that'll affect their perception on each other (hmm...I smell a theory...Very Happy) Plus, I love how their breaking the traditional mahou shoujo trope of just using magical powers to defeat the enemy, like they can ACTUALLY DO AEROBICS AND FIGHT! 

Oh and...
