Dance Pansted - Powerpuff Girls sXe01

At first I wasn't sure about the new art style, but then I realised it looked actually quite good. The start reminded me of the reboot of star trek, where "white" and "bright" were kind of everywhere. This didn't really detract that much from my enjoyment, though.

I suppose the important thing to realise while watching this is that it is essentially a "reboot". There are some minor changes beyond the art style, such as Craig McCracken's lack of involvement (I believe) in the project.

If this does evolve into a full-blown reboot it might be a good idea for them to somehow retcon some stuff. There have already been some continuity problems, such as bubbles having ice breath. I don't think that ever happened before. Retconning the series, and offering it a fresh start would prevent any upset arising from such issues as this.

Aside from that, the main characters seem to be, well, in character. This is good, as some time has passed since it last aired, and it's good to see no major dysfunction in this aspect. Mojo is as vocal and crazy as ever. The mayor is a bit dim, as expected. The PPG all have consistency, bubbles being rather happy-go-lucky, blossom taking a lead role, buttercup being very brash.

Casting Ringo Starr as Fibonacci Sequins was brilliant. And the character was very entertaining, I mean, he has literal Square Rooted plants. In fact, that's something I noticed. A lot of the visual gags one might have expected from past ppg are retained here.

The story itself is a good one. It uses ideas which are up-to-date, and yet it doesn't seem totally out of place with what characters might do and interact with. Hence: Video Game Mind Control. I'm not sure how I feel about the professor his whole "dancing" arc of the story, though. For some reason it threw me off a bit at first, but I was OK with it by the end.

Other notable things (abridged version):

  • The "Awesome Pony Hairbrush" is Princess Celestia branded.
  • The newspaper has the headline "Single Dads - How I Do It"
  • The pickle jar was right on the shelf. Classic trope of having an easy way and refusing to do it.
  • Prof's blackboard had what looks like Carbon molecule structures on it
  • The equation "F=GM1M2/D^2" is incorrect. It should read "over r squared"
  •  Professor's "Nutritious breakfast" is anything but.

I would hope that this somehow evolved into a full series, I can definitely see potential in this.

What programs do you use to draw? I have a suspicion that you might use illustrator because of the fancy curves in your drawings.
