DAYUM!! The Umbrella Academy

So where do I start with this crazy series that dropped on netflix a few days ago. I never heard of the comic but I will have to check it put when I have time, so let me jump into this. The umbrella Academy is a show about super power children all born on the same day at the time to several women. There is another major detail I am leaving out, actually there will be alot of major details I will refrain from stating that’s for you to watch and be just as surprised as I was.


As I was stating this series is about children with powers that grew up to be super heroes and possibly villains who were raised by a very strange old man, a robot and a talk chimp, yes I said a talking chimp. The series takes us through a puzzle which the main cast are trying to solve and move on with their lives.

As the series depict it is extremely difficult living life with super powers and as normal individual and sometimes those power come with added responsibilities of usage, simply don’t abuse such said powers which we heard time and time again in many power based series and comics. The series has many highs and some lows and some what the hell moments but I felt entirely entertained through out the Ten plus episodes. The conclusion was also a what the hell did I just see and hopefully if and when they return it is with a bang.

Check out this interestingly weird series on netflix as they seem to always have the weird on standby.

DAYUM!!–Cannon Busters: The Animated Pilot Official Trailer

canon-buster

So CannonBusters which seems synonymous to GunBuster a classic animation series but no relation dropped early this month which would be July 8th 2016. It was an amazing short by the Cannon Buster team – Lesean Thomas, Thomas Romain and the whole Satellite gang along with any other partner company and Artist that too part.
The music and animation blended beautifully, it had a vibe that simply screamed I wanted this damn animation made into a series.

Getting to the meat I am very elated that I supported the kickstarter. Was it what I expected and more? In actuality, I was unsure what to expect as I was not sure if the creator was aiming to follow what he started in comic which I also own. The comic as I briefly recall was most definitely a different take thus far but I am excited to see where they may go with this slight shift, again I am unsure if that was the original course, the creator can do whatever he feels. As for the look and feel this was a vibrant setting, not much is shown in terms of scale as this simply was the opening pilot or half a pilot as I would assume as it was only 15 minutes. Here is to hoping that this publicity affords them the greenlight to secure funding, as it does cost a great deal to produce this level of animation. If possible I would hope it was picked up by netflix as I have a love for how netflix works, then again this feeling is from a consumers point of view and not as a creator. Overall I would hope that the creators are benefiting from such a union.
