Doublekek anon speaks truth
Just about yeah.
So, how did you enjoy them leaks?
>watching them on my laptop, with my stepdaughter in my lap, her dad messing around with his phone being too cool to join us
>As the last remaining human Finn convinces Marceline & Co. to not kill the Vampire King
>Vampire KIng and Finn form broship and go on adventures together
>Vampire King bro teaches Finn how to not be a beta around the women he likes and not that bad advice comedy shit
Too bad it won't happen.
if they ever make it canon, it's out of desperation, by pulling a bryke they think it could do something good
and ultimately it'd be the death of their show because their entire rating are based off of the bubbline shippers, and what happens when you get what you want ? you leave
they'll never give us the finn the real finn deserves to be.
fucking tumblr boogey men
>mfw Finn's my favorite character
>mfw I just want a series that's really about him and not faking it
>mfw Pen has no confidence so Finn will always have to live in that shadow
Not exactly, The people I talk to who are causal watchers love her. Tell me that her episodes are just well done and that they really think she's interesting. They tell me shes the most complex character and that her development is consistent.
From what I can guess, parody of how Marceline keeps coming back just to stir up drama.
I wouldn't say her character is complex, but I've largely enjoyed her episodes to date aside from anything after Finn's Dad crashed the spaceship, which was the last episode I watched.
Bubbeline is disgusting though. It makes me sick to my stomach.
I fucking love that guy's AT stuff
The problem is that they stopped using Marceline as the cool big sis who teases you and who you get weird urgings for as you grow up, and turned her into a closeted dyke suffering in silence.
So Finn and FP are still a thing in the comics, right?
....Just like Finn! They're perfect for each other!
Yeah, but there are multiple ships going on in that comic.
She's not a closeted dyke man, god damn that site really poisoned her character. She's just someone who want to grow up and find her purpose and have Simon remember her. In a way she just wants someone that cares.
Well, yeah, that's part of >>77469493 and I think it's a little true. Finn was a simple, positive character. But the writers want more "drama" and made him needlessly negative.
I'm pretty sure Finn doesn't swing both ways though, unlike the King of OOO.
I believe it was planned for October, but pushed back.
I don't feel she was sidelined at all. AT has so many supporting characters, I don't feel the a need to give one episode for each per season, for instance. They focus on the character when they feel like it.
That said, Marcy does have a huge fan base.
To a big segment of the fandom she is closeted, and to her VA she's closeted. To an even bigger segment of the fandom she's being written as a closeted lesbian, even if it's all subtext, and they're unhappy about it.
That I do not know.
Related to this, will Lemongrab never show up again? Is it because of Rick and Morty? I just learned the other day the guy voices both characters on that show...
And? He'd already been through some shit, like the death of both his parents. He was handling himself. The giant dump of teenage ISSUES on his head doesn't make sense for that character -- it's not just an age thing, it's a personality thing. The writers tried extra hard to make sure Finn got unhappy and broken and unable to deal with his own life. For drama.
What's the point of this show? What overarching plot is there in adventure time? The focus is supposedly Finn's internal conflict of being a fucking beta and growing up and whatnot, but in the episodes that move the narrative the most, like the finale of season 6, we don't see him growing up, or acknowledging his failures, he goes from epiphany to epiphany without changing, so what's the point?
only if it's done like shit it will. But that goes for any couple
I think it just wanted to kick off on some easy going episodes. Nothing too dramatic going on, but still laying some groundwork.
He doesn't seem unhappy or unable to deal with anything now. He's still happy and open-minded, but also cautious and rational. All the dick-tripping was baloney yeah but he's grown to actually think about stuff instead of just mindlessly running around with his sword like a kid
>He's still happy and open-minded, but also cautious and rational.
>mfw the writers are purposely making him shit as wall as the plot
I just want him to be badass and cool again and not the shallow husk of a character he is now.
I don't even give a fuck if it's PB or anyone. Just give him someone he'd be logically happy with.
The King of Ooo thing is the most consistent plot the show's ever had. Still not expecting it to lead to anything, but hey maybe? In general the plotlines are there to keep people hooked. But none of it has real driving force because we know when the writers get backed into a corner they'll just warp the whole universe to get out of it.
>we don't see him growing up, or acknowledging his failures, he goes from epiphany to epiphany without changing, so what's the point?
impressing casual viewers with le deep character development while at the same time Finn doesn't have to change. pretty sneaky sis.
The CN 2010 era cartoons are full of wonderful babes-
I'm still upset how that kind of went nowhere.
Finns romances will never go anywhere
Man, not even with romances, just Flame Princess as a whole just going nowhere. Would have been cool to see her become a more active member of the party, and even if they broke up they could have at least done it in a way where it didn't make the whole thing a waste of time.
I hear it now
Top fucking kek. I love him.
Does anyone think Hunson Abadeer is gonna make an appearance in the mini series? Part of me thinks so just because it focuses on Marceline . Plus, I'm pretty sure he and the vampires have some sort of connection.
>empartridge posts this months ago, the staff tumblr reblogs it
>stakes is tarot as fuck
>the vampire king is lion-headed
finn taking control of the situation so thoroughly that the vampire king willingly submits when
Speaking of the staff and tumblr - this picture they posted after the last week of episodes was over is now pretty familiar
But nah, just the first four episodes. So two days worth of episodes.
Oh, now I remember, that thing where Marceline was speak-singing, or whatever? Yeah, that was bad.
>That has to be the absolute worst song that's ever been on the show.
the rap song where Marceline explains why she is hunting down vampires?
If you mean that, then yes, it was pretty bad. In general the fourth episode was quite underwhelming.
And look who wrote the episode! What a surprise, uh?
In the last three seasons the overall OST has been quite sub-par. I'm not talking about the songs themselves. It may be good for chill episodes, but when shit happens that music is so bland and generic it doesn't really stand out.
The days of Manlorette Party are gone.
Couldn't she absorb more than one ability? Or am I also not paying enough attention
So, every vampire gives her a new ability:
The Fool = Flying ability
The Empress = Invisibility powers
The Hierophant = Morphing powers
The Moon = ???
The Vampire King = ???
In that comic written by a new storyboard artist, Marceline kills The Moon but the ability she gains hasn't been showed yet
so am I the only one that thinks the vampires are kinda on the right on this 1?
I mean the king said he won't feed on humans and he literally cares about his people and the survival of his race.
hiero and the empress are the only ones that are really evil.
Yep, Episodes 5 and 6 are up on kat
>Harvey Beaks doesn't get recorded / posted on Nick.com even after it airs
>CN keeps leaking their shit in advance
It's like pottery - it rhymes. Disney seems like the only competent channel
recent 2 episodes that were leaked today were spot on with jokes. How Finn and Jaked talked etc. about the things that were happening, it felt genuine instead of "hey dude, maybe we should check in yonder boat house" "ok dude"
Finn needs some love too bitch
Olivia said it was but then she took it back on twitter saying she liked make things up sometimes (AKA troll the Bubbline fanbase)
Hynden Walch (PB's VA) Said they had some sort of Peter Pan-ish relationship as in when Bubblegum grew up and wanted to take care of the kingdom, Marceline wanted to dick around Ooo together and shit, resulting in them growing apart.
I'm a bit confused on the timeline. The Empress mentions that she had Simon under her control for several years, uses this fact to taunt Marceline. Probably had him fight her to fuck with her head, right?
Marceline didn't know vampires existed until she was already a teenager/youngadult, years after Simom abandoned her, presumably he had already gone nuts. It's not adding up
Part 5 is uploaded. Check back in 10 or so minutes for part 6
She could have known about them before and never killed them until that point.
Or there was a point before Simon lost all his Marbles and could still be controled by Vampires and he got controlled some time during her career.
It could explain why Marceline went from killing evil Vamps to even kill a harmless fool like the fool.
Yeah but some people don't torrent, dillweed.
Abadeer is a fucking dick, he doesn't need or deserve more screentime.
I don't understand why other girls remain so fixated with their biological dads when they have a stand up stepdad there for them. So what if he's a little nuts? He took you in, he's happily raising you, he'll support you and be there for you, he loves you. Love him back, and be there for him because he earned it and he deserves it way more that that asshole that you share genetics with. Fucking christ.

But if there's one thing Finn should hold his head up and be proud of
It's that at least he's not Anthony Burch.
Just finished part three.
>The humans are long gone.
No, Finn's still around. And his father, and presumably his mother, and possibly even OTHER humans, have all gone to outer space. There's also the mutated humans in Beautopia.
>mfw he gets his ass whooped again and does jack shit
Marceline's been getting her ass kicked too.
What could a human do against a vampire?
and p butler just took advantage of the right moment. And finn was being telekinesis'd down
He's being brave as FUCK though
I think they should just bite the fucking bullet and change his design to make him look older, they used to brag about how the character and the VA aged simultaneously, make it actually count for something.
So, no Mega of part 6?
Also, something interesting I noticed
Every episode of the mini-series is getting a specific title card regarding the main character/vampire of that episode
The first episode had Marceline
I don't remember who was in the second episode title card
The third episode had The Fool
The fourth episode had The Empress
The fifth episode had The Hierophant
I have yet to see the sixth episode but it's likely going to be The Moon
There are two remaining episodes until the end of the mini-series. One of them will get Vampire King as the character in the title card, but there is space for another important character...
He's always brave, but god he has to stop being reckless. And Marceline is not at her prime. She used to have healing powers, so before absorbing the moon she was just like Jake. Do remember without her vamp powers she's powerless.
Finn got poisoned/sick to the bone in "Have You Seen the Muffin Mess" and still helped out Peebles.
Kid's got heart. Tons of heart. The writers just don't want him to improve neither his fighting or sociability skills.
with direct downloads you can just put the file in a folder and then the downloaders can't see the all the content of the folder
with torrents its shows you the contents of the folder like pic related and you can tell if your downloading a mp4 or mkv file and see if theres hidden exe files in the folder
this is 4chan, someone could just take a worm and put it in an .exe and package it with the video labeled the same name as video.
people used this method of direct downloads to spread lostboy.exe way back
You can almost always pick out when an episode is storyboarded by someone who sees Bubblegum as a relatable character, because they always draw her with a very modern fashion sense instead of the normal "silly-looking princess" look.
Why is PB so anally shattered here after seeing the king?
>I don't wanna be a vampire anymore
What the fuuuuuck?
This was so cool
Luke and Emily have made an incredible entrance
Why do I feel like Marceline and The Vampire King knew each other from their talk on the boat populated by humans?
And why does this whole mini-series give me Kill Bill vibes, despite not as cool or well made?
They are just jobbing Finn so hard in this. Making him look more like a damsel in distress than anything else. This is your show now, /at/. I hope you enjoy it.
This is Finn we're talking about. The dude that fucking ripped his arm off trying to hold a spaceship. That did all kinds of rad shit.
And he trips trying to save his fucking friend WHO TURNS OUT SHE'S A BLACK LESBIAN
Because her VA is half-black too, and I guess they want Marceline to be an embodiment of her?
Adventure Time feels like the show that got left behind, tumblr and "young adults" love Steven Universe, the network and little kids love Teen Titans Go!, AT meanwhile us just there floating on a limbo.
It's Cartoon Network's The Simpsons
At the end everything is going to be like nothing has ever happened, right?
Marceline learns to accept her vampire nature, PB goes back in her house, Finn and Jake still chillin and having fun. Nothing will be changed.
Anybody else really disappointed with Stakes so far?
>bubblegum and marceline both moving finn's hand off their shoulders
>the vampires are named after tarot cards
>Represents a beginning of a journey or endeavour
>Is the first to job to Marceline
>represents love, the character also has elements of the high priestess, who represents the domain of the mind
>the vampire has the power to use her mind to make people her slaves
>represents the spiritual world, can also be seen as a teacher or a demagogue to try and gain converts to a belief
>tries to convince marceline to stop killing vampires
>there's no card named "the oracle," but parallels can be drawn between the hermit, who stays alone to gain wisdom, and the wheel of fortune, which represents the workings of fate and destiny
>The vampire king
>again, no card labelled "king," but can be similar to Death, who represents spiritual transformation, the Devil, who represents one's own self-destructive tendencies, Temperance, which represents experience gained through hardship, and The Tower, which represents obliteration of the old ways to make room for the new.
Dude, they're all on wikipedia.
Great things amirite guyz?
Just get me in bed with that boy and I'll show him a time better than Bubblebity or Vampbitch could ever imagine
Adventure Time: 2015 Spooktacular
Unlike the other comics by BOOM! this one is canon and ties into Stakes.
Fuck the writers. He's got that glorious ass hair and bod and they want his ass to keep slobbering over A 828 year old dyke and a flaming cunt (lietrally)
They better fix his character after this series Glob Dammit
Meh. Was expecting it to have big reveals all over the place, but instead it has been quite lukewarm for the most part. It's nice and all, but from the words of Muto I was expecting something a bit more intriguing.
The story is progressing very slowly, it's hard to relate to the new vampire characters and there isn't any really menacing villain. The jokes are quite good though, and Finn and Jake are funny there. Let's see how the last two remaining episodes will pack it up.
Just bingewatched all season 7 episodes released so far.
I-is Adventure Time actually getting better?
Maybe it's just been too long since I watched, but I enjoyed myself way more than watching almost the entire latter half of season 6 which almost felt like a chore.
the king looks kinda cool, yeah.
The moon was cute, I hoped they would give her like a cute voice but nope
DEMON VOICE DEMON FACE AAAARGH
also, unrelated to this but did LSP end up straight up raping finn or what
So far Stakes has been the best Adventure Time has been in a while, but still suffers from "Boring Conversation Syndrome". While there are a few good jokes, there still seems to be a combination of flat writing and voice acting from a lot of the cast. I can only assume this is the voice director's fault since some of these are veteran voice actors. I also hate how Finn is still so jaded. Get off the Prozac already. A return to action is great, but I find it a little odd that the show's protagonist is now the most passive of the group. 7/10 so far.
The comic list isn't up to date since it doesn't have the 2015 Spooktacular on there yet, and doesn't include books like The Enchiridion & Marcy's Super Secret Scrapbook
Did we just get fucking status quo'd again but this time we got Bubbline pandering?
I wish my tabletop sessions were like that. It was always a sausagefest, but at least I could play with my shirt off and tell raunchy jokes
Decided to check out how Season 7 was shaping up by watching one of the new episodes, Cherry Cream Soda. Maybe that was a bad one to start out with but holy shit was it a let down.
I hope Stakes is good cuz that's the last chance I'm going to give this show.
Well, when she played the song to open the door from the doordude that stole things, she played B-MO like a chiptune thingie.
So I guess chiptune or electronic or whatever.
The Death thing is how the Moon identifies her as a hunter.
The parallel being drawn is clearly with the Fool.
I'm gonna check out the leaks. I want it to be better...I used to like this show
I'll do that. CCS was just...weird. I appreciate what it tried to do but it just fell flat for me.
I'll get right on that dogg
I like when Finn mouthed off to the hierophant. Good ol psycho Finn
Tumblr is going to lose their goddamn minds, I'll tell you what.
Son of a BITCH, Cartoon Network
I can't even watch leaks without you assholes spoiling shit. They're absolutely trying to kill off this series as quickly as possible, I'm convinced now.
Who even goes "oh let me just grab a clip from (what I assume is) the finale of a miniseries we're trying to hype up" without considering this type of stuff.
I hate it. I hate that CN can't even keep a consistent schedule (go look right now, they're airing TTG AGAIN when every guide online shows Regular Show should be on), their promo videos and bumpers look like shit, and for some reason after TWO WEEKS of all their premieres getting leaked they're STILL putting files up three days early with a consistent naming algorithm.
