Hey Tumblrites!

This show is called Cybersix, you may remember it from circa 2000~ in Canada, the US and Argentina. The main character is genderfluid; posing as a male schoolteacher by day and a “crimefighting” lady by night. The show revolves around some bizarre scientific experiments used to terrorize and control the city, and Cybersix’s escape as a “failed experiment” in a quest to find not only freedom, but identity.

Granted, since it aired on Fox Kids and Teletoon, it isn’t allowed to explore the complex adult situations found in the original comics. But still, it’s a really intriguing watch, only 13 episodes long, and as of today, it’s finally available for pre-order on DVD!

I do highly recommend it for fans of sci-fi, action and mystery! The art and animation are gorgeous for being 15 years old (the animation was done by the same studio that did Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker!). It doesn’t always make sense, but it’s a truly unique cartoon and I’m so glad it finally got a proper DVD release!

(plus look at that costume, Cybersix is literally the lovechild of Batman and Carmen Sandiego)

Anyway, just thought I’d share because HELL YEAH I’M PRE-ORDERIN’ THIS ONE!

The late 80's early 90's was an odd time where everything got a cartoon no matter what it was

Oh definitely! I want to say that the success of Batman: The Animated Series influenced it to a certain degree. 

I also want to say it was all part of making certain characters profitable and TV shows are part of the deal.

I totally dig the artstyle, what is this from?

Cybersix, which is faaantasticcccc omfg.

I am just gonna… lie down with my feels, bye

It’s coming out on DVD! So excited!

I don’t believe this show was on FOX KIDS long enough for me to remember it all that well beyond the protagonists costume and her giant panther.

It was only about 13 episodes long so you probably did miss it. Frankly, I’m surprised they decided to adapt since its source material (comic) was a bit more adult. 

The theme song remains one of my favorites.

Dear followers (and followers of followers or people who randomly find this)

Please tell me what your favourite song(s) are or what songs you would recommend to a friend who asks you to tell you what your favourite songs are.

let me just uh

(i recommend putting it on shuffle)

Anything by janelle monae cus that woman is magic.

Billie Holiday, Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass, and Barry White are also good artists to add to your list.

The American Idiot stageplay soundtrack is pretty solid too.

Second on Janelle Monae. If you like Electro Swing check out Alice Francis.

Now, if you don’t mind Japanese music I’d recommend Fudanjuku, DOLL$BOXX, and pretty much any Kamen Rider theme song.

"Something should’ve changed in the planning room that day when our producers and artists decided to make a Sailor Moon anime only about an accurate representation of the manga series. They should have also fixed the show’s misogynistic and racist rhetoric. The Sailor Moon produced now doesn’t stand a chance against us girls who want more for ourselves than to be a ‘pretty princess’"Do you agree?

This has popped up so many times as a recommendation it’s would be funny if it weren’t for the article itself being terribly written.

My pick for Most Underrated Pink Ranger - Rose Ortiz from Operation Overdrive.

The girl genius in pink had been seen before with Kendrix but I appreciated the layers with Rose. It doesn’t sound like she was the Lil Miss Perfect loved by all. She pushed herself to get to places.

On my re-watch of Operation Overdrive for next week I also want to focus on the characters because man, if the forums are anything to go by they rarely get love.

I AM SO PUMPED FOR THIS! I was just thinking the other day about what I wished we'd gotten closure on and can I just say I really need some Dark Ocean stuff in this new season. And I really hope they elaborate on the whole Hikari, child of light, digi-messiah thing. I always loved TK and Kari in 02 but I felt there was a lot left unsaid about their abilities. Like how did TK will himself into the Dark Ocean dimension? I just gotta know.

OMG, that ticked me off so much as a kid! That was like one of the most interesting things about 02 and then they never brought it up. Not to mention it’s implied that Kari may be psychic and then it got dropped. And what was Ken’s deal with it as well because I recall he was affected by the same place with Kari and Yolei had to snap them out of it.

Can’t help but wonder if Tamers looked at the Dark Ocean episode and was like “Yo, let’s use this for the D-Reaper arc!”.

Ok, time for a rant about how Saban lost his Power rangers touch (Up for discussion, just reblog/message me)

This video shows the first battles of Power rangers Super megaforce and Kaizoku sentai gokaiger.

Rant under the break

While there is a general consensus that the newer Saban seasons aren’t as good, I don’t think your reasoning is the best.

  • First, why would the rangers not being like either the Goseigers or Gokaigers be a bad thing? If you don’t like Noah fine but Joe’s story and personality doesn’t jive with the high school format as well. 
  • Not including Basco is hardly the worst offense. 
  • And really, didn’t Goseiger pretty much dropped the rivalries fairly early? If so, there’s no point in keeping it over.
  • As for not using a story about angels and pirates for a MMPR remake, MMPR used footage from a series about ancient warriors living with dinosaurs, then a series about martial arts, then about Ninjas. You can make any story you want if you’re creative enough with writing and editing. The problem is that they aren’t really trying to do that. 
  • I’m confused about your use of extraordinary with GokaiGreen because I’m pretty sure he’s meant to be flailing around and not be all that impressive.

Really, watching the two fights I feel like they actually managed to make the switch not be too terrible. Using the first fight where the Gokaiger do well to say “look at how awesome we are” actually works to show off their power mode.
