So, incase you don't know about it, there's a new cartoon out on Disney called Star vs. the Forces of Evil.

So, a little bit about this show. Star Butterfly, princess of some alternate dimension, just turned 14. This means that she gets the family heirloom/royal scepter/magical girl wand-desu(TM).

Anybody that's watched this show for, say 4-5 seconds, will understand that giving Star an EXTRAORDINARY MAGICAL DEVICE OF ULTIMATE POWER is probably not a good, sane, idea.

Anywho, things happen and she is sent somewhere less magical, namely Earth. (Just like a certain Starswirl the Bearded) She is instructed to stay with an Earth family and craziness ensues.

First of all, I love me some cartoons and this is definitely one you should check out. My only qualm is the pacing. It's really freakin fast! Now, I realize that it's a series with ~15 minute episodes, and that it's likely tailored for your typical American child that can't stay focused on a single thing for more than 3 seconds but given the first episode(s), it feels like it's dumping slapstick and zaniness on you and completely glossing over what I believe would be great character development.

Look at Steven Universe, it's typically 15 minute episodes but there's still depth in the characters. You can relate to them. So far in Star, it feels like you don't have time to relate with the characters. 

BUT DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER or a cartoon/anime/tv series by its first episode. I really, really, want to love this show (Star is a really great character) but....I don't know. We'll see.

I'd post a link to the episode but Disney scares me. Besides, learning how to Google things is an important life skill! =p

If you've seen Star vs. the Forces of Evil, let me know what you thought about it in the comments!

I'm a 24 year old guy. My interests are so broad that I find it difficult to specialize in one field. That said, I'm not the best but I try and enjoy what I do! ^_^ I don't really get to watch many movies and I've only just recently attempted reading for enjoyment lol I love (good) cartoons and anime. Such examples are The Powerpuff Girls, Ed Edd & Eddy, Dexters Laboratory, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Pani Poni Dash!, Negima!?, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Strawberry Marshmallow, .hack//sign, To Aru Kagaku no Railgun, Maria✝Holic, etc... Talk to me and we'll probably be friends! :D

I just want to let you know that I feel really bad for not showing gratitude. I did like that you tried to show me something I could read, and I never meant to hurt your feelings. I'm sorry, I truly am.

P.S. I won't bother you again, I just wanted to say this outside the poll.

No hard feelings. Admittedly, I was a little harsh in reply to you. 

It's hard to tell what emotion is trying to be portrayed on the internet. I prefer to talk in person. Especially when it comes to having discussions. 

I'm sorry. I suppose I could have taken my own advice and not bothered replying to you. I just have had bad experiences with trolls in the past.

It may seem a little bit uncomfortable now, but feel free to stop by my page whenever you'd like.

No bad blood here, friend. :hug:

Happy (late) Birthday! :)
I wish I had a present for you right now :(

I might be able to get a build of my Join Type test path effect working soon, though. Damn segfaults.

Can't say how soon, unfortunately. It could be a day, or 2 weeks.

In the meantime, you can see a preview here: db.tt/mAmWTQAG (I had to move it into one file because of some linker error

The interesting stuff is at the bottom.

Hey! Thanks a lot! No need for a present! People acknowledging that I'm still alive is gift enough! XP As for the Join Types, I see you've posted a journal entry about them, so I'll totally go give them a look! :D
