How does this show keep being so good?
Villains are awesome, animation gets better each each episode, funny as all hell, good characterization, good writing, ect.
>tfw you want to play Maces and Talons
I agree but the evil goatee thing is ehh overplayed and also surprised dagur had a heart thought he would let his sister rot regardless of the whole family is important speech anyways I made a basic OC for it
the fact their isnt a giant MMO where you can train dragons, explore, conquer with factions, sail, and use viking weapons and armor dissapoints me.
you can basically use what model pirates of the Caribbean online did just with dragons added in as well as ships and stuff. plus able to build your own base within your factions territory with balistas and stuff.
>episode has a wolf in it
>everything it does is offscreen so they dont have to model and rig a wolf
>turns out instead of the main badguy having some grand amazing scheme, he just wants to kill all the dragons on earth
to be fair, thats his career. they state they kill them and sell them off in trades. Hides, teeth, poison, ect.
they're trying to be fucking rich. and when vikings werent raiding for riches, they were trading for riches.
>money, my dear boy.
Also, Drago is the villain you want. He had he strongest, largest dragon, the most threatening appearance, and the grandest scheme. They can't build up to a villain greater than Drago in a midquel series. Having a villain explicitly smarter than Hiccup is the best choice they could've made right now.
did you not see episodes 1-13 of the first half of Race to the edge?
they split it up into two 13 episode half seasons divided by 6 months instead of waiting an entire year between seasons.
>in the 3rd movie Ruffnuts going to get a boyfriend, and everythings going to be super awkward for Tuffnut
Stoick let Thornado free in Defenders so it could start a family.
Remember than when they found it it was protecting a wounded thunderdrum? That was his mate.
His new dragon is a rumblehorn called Skullcrusher, one of the new species discoveref since RoB/DoB, and the dragon he rides in HTTYD2.
Also, the events of HTTYD2 happen in a short time span and the characters were not ready for combat (Hiccup was on a scouting trip, and the rest of the Raiders joined him straight out of Dragon Race).
It already has, in the special that came before the new season premiered.
Its placement on the timeline is tricky. Could be set immediately before rtte during the new show, or even after it (depending on where they ene the current story).
>HTTYD books were my favourite as a kid
>Hear about the movie years later
>they butcher everything that made the books charming
>litreally a diffrent world with the books names slapped on for sales
>imagine if star wars just used Harry Potter names
>plebs gobble it up because tumblr tier dragon memes
feels bad man
It seems show tradition at this point.
Mildew got outranked by Alvin, who then got outranked by Dagur, who then got outranked by Riker, who will eventually get outranked by Drago.
What the fuck, I didn't write desu
they're building on it. its there but subtle.
watch it, before the events of the 2nd movie happen they'll be a full couple.
hell you saw where hiccup saved her from being stranded in the ocean.
even heather sees it.
Time for victorian hiccstrid ghost stories.
Oh, yeah, this crossover is getting popular.
Ruffnut seems to be really starved for the D
and I'm not talking about dragons
but in terms of depravity her brother doesn't seem to be that far behind
>they're a packet deal too, it seems,
>judging by the episode in which she 'marries' Fishlegs
There's honestly quite A LOT of intresting world building stuff that neither movies nor show even bother to touch.
I had honestly expected Heather to at least be a start in spreading dragon riding among other tribes, but that sure went south.
The gang trained a bunch of terrible terrors to do tricks.
Being the practical sort, Hiccup trained his to function like a homing pigeon.
A very well trained one considering it still works from Dragon's Edge, 34 hours away from Berk.
So what even are we looking at here?
It doesn't seem like a map.
It seems like a bunch of dragon eye lenses.
this show is fucking funny
he's turning into an alpha
he bangs heather, you just know it.
Not even that, I meant back in season 1.
I figured that Heather and her family would settle somewhere and introduce peace with dragons elsewere.
I was honestly quite shocked when I found out what Dagur did to her family.
I'd like her with Fishlegs, but after some comments by Heather in RTTE, I wouldn't be opposed to her getting with Fishlegs.
From what I can tell on tumblr, Ruffnut is more often paired with Snotlout these days.
I guess I cannot sympathize. At all.
Dagur is a fucking shithead, and quite honestly deserves everything that's comming his way.
And for gods sake, shave that fucking shaggy beard.
Anyone happen to have a folder with web-dl for Riders and Defenders?
I want to marathon them to get caught up for this, but CN are cunts in my part of the world ;_;
>I feel bad for Dagur
You feel bad for the chaotic evil guy that slaughtered an entire village full of innocent people, who is a constant backstabbing dick to everyone around him?
Should've been a black cat, but other than that, picture is great.
How ballsy would it be if this show got rid of dagur by heather pretty graphically running a blade through him?
He's a good enough villain to go out that way, which i think is a compliment to him.
Yeah, but that's the movies, and even there a lot of gory discretion shots are used.
I think they can probably imply Heather killing Dagur by sword with clever camera use, I just doubt that's in their plans.
DESU, I think Heather will not survive her revenge quest.
>Snotlout is comming out of RTTE balantly bi.
i think that was less "Bi" and idol worship since he glorifies masculinity.
there is nothing outside of comedy bits to suggest he has homosexual attractions.
I was so mad when Gustav wasn't in the 2nd movie.
I loved when the twins made the joke about the "missing arm" gag, and that Hiccup ruined the "missing leg" gag by taking the joke too far.
Ruffnut is canonically a slut though, some of her bio for the 2nd movie said that she "dated" most of the male population on Berk,
Unfortunately DeBlois has been explicit that they don't take into consideration the stuff the show does.
I bet that the fact that showing Gobber doing dragon dentistry in the movie was thanks to the storyboarders/animators.
As a matter of fact, not a whole lot currently.
My harddrive is dying so I'm transfering files around and my HTTYD folders are at the moment rather depleted.
Shame, because my Astrid collection has grown quite a bit since the last time I made an image dump in one of these.
which is odd because the show and movies gel pretty well together.
Also anyone catch they started cursing a bit once they moved to netflix?
>Tuff: welcome to rumblehorn hell
>Tuff: Well aside form that little snafu
now, i've seen all the movies and shows, its there but they're not slamming it over our heads and making it a developing relationship.
watch, before the event of the second, Hiccup will straight up propose.
quite the relief, aint it?
The problem is that acording to DeBlois and America Ferrera, Hiccup and Astrid had been a couple for years in HTTYD2, and their relationship in it shows it.
And the placement of RTTE in the timeline throws a wrech in those statements.
Also, many find Hiccup rather uncaring about Astrid in RTTE at times.
>you will never ride Toothless by day and Astrid by night
This lil' nigga thinks he gets the pussy.
Not a whole lot.
There's also the braids. They are explicitely stated by the director to be made by Astrid as sing of affection.
And the shippers are driving themselves up walls over the fact that Hiccup already has them despite both not really commiting to it.
>You will never be as alpha as Hiccup.
Astrid for sure.
Just watch Portrait of Hiccup and compare it to any given episode.
It's incredibly obvious that it is one of the first episodes produced.
Yea season 2 improved on a lot espeically adding in a more solid plot. That is one of the biggest advantages digital has in shows being made in batches and they can build the plots tighter. If we were still Network writers would be asked not to connect then together as much. Networks don't like shows they can't just throw on.
whats with tumblr and those fucking noses?!
i know it originated from penny arcade, but this shit wasnt good then.
animation isnt bad, just limited.
Pacing is a little off but its pretty damn good.
I watched the movies only recently. One thing that stood out to me was Hiccup losing his foot and then getting a magic prothesis that basically undoes it. Was there any point beyond Toothless having a broken tail wing, making them similar in that regard? It's not like I needed him to go all Nuclear about his phantom pain, but it just seems weird to take something away from a character only to give it back five seconds later.
Vikings are used to amputations and hotswapping gadget prosthesis. Gobber has a peg leg and a tool arm, and it's hinted that there was some time between Hiccup slaying the Red Death and waking up back at Berk. The guy got practically everything he could've ever wanted, and he appreciates that too much to get angsty about his missing leg.
This is an amazing Astird.
Shame the rest of this fucker's output is disgusting shit.
Last two pictures I can share.
Ok, one more that I had forgotten to share today.
>he cast and astrid especially looked the best in the first movie
>alot of character and expression in their faces
>through the TV series and the second movie they are all evolving into potato faces
Well that's definitely a nadder but the setting sure as hell isn't httyd. Im curious as hell to learn whats going on in this pic.
Dagur may have gains but he´s still a goddamn manlet.
Haven't finished the new batch yet but.
I must say that i'm diggin snotlout's progression, he's starting to become more dependable, less intolerant, more negotiable, and more in control of his dragon.
If the dragon riders had a core team of 3, who would it be?
You say that, but that is sort of what he does.
Well, he's seen working on the flight suit, I'm sure he'll start working on the sword in the next few seasons.
its funny because Dagur and Mako share the same voice actor. David Faustino.
also known as Bud Bundy from married with children.
its seen and mentioned a few times.
not very, the whole team did it.
But there is you motherfucker, it's School of Dragons.
No, RttE use the 18yo design, which first appeared in the second mvie short where they show how they invented the dragon racing game. They're 20 in the movie. Also there are graphic novels coming that will set after the second movie.
It's still there.
Their bond is strong as fuck, anon.
I hate how people cling to that "just friends" moment with Heather to suddenly erase the relationship from existance.
Heather didn't even buy it. I doubt Astrid did, either.
I really need to find some Astrid pictures with cleavage.
it was called the Snapping Zapwing.
it's venom causes a fuzzy moss to grow that's a great for absorbing tons of static electricity, it covers itself in the stuff which makes it hard to bite or touch.
i like how they both want each other but they have no idea how to approach that fact.
its how you due a "will they wont they?" thing right because you know they will you just get to see the characterization evolve.
from what i understand, they're gonna find a balance.
probably be a slightly taller Dagur build if that makes sense.
>Snotlouts dad is the only parent in Burk other than Stoic that show sup in the movie
>in the series have characters constantly mentioning their parents and family, but they can never show them
>Astrids house gets blowd up
>OMG Gobber, my parents!
>oh, they are fine, they are somehwere else!
>thats good. Lets change the subject and stop mentioning my parents so we dont have to show them!
the movie guys are dicks who don't watch the show so the show guys can't introduce them till they appear in the films, lest they have to explain the sudden difference
that's why Thornado got fucked over
>they actually say "oh my god" once instead of saying something about Thor
I wouldn't mind Astrid with bigger hips.
