The animation style is not my cup of tea, but I'm glad to see some new story content coming out!  Maybe we'll get some more information on some characters who sorely need it.
I make the dolls Mattel won't.

The graphics hurt my eyes. And I don't like that song the least bit. But I'm glad there are going to be webisodes, because it would be a bad sign if they didn't make any.

The animation is better than those test ones? That came out when the brand was first going into 2.0 mode.

But they look like a blocky PS2 game. I kind of like them.

I like the animation style, plus more webisodes so that's a great big yay from me :biggrin: :cool:
There are many of shades of grey between black and white.

The animation is relatively good (not dashing but decent), the designs are definitely not to my liking.
I know, I know, I need to let go of G1 so I can start enjoying G2, but damn they are not making it easy with this vapid designs.
Anyway, I guess the show has potential to give us more than what the stop motion webisodes are doing, so for the sake of keeping the line alive, I'm all in :)

That animation... I dunno. I mean, I knew it was never going to be utterly spectacular, but I figured it would be done in a similar style to the old webisodes. This looks like it was ripped from a Wii shovelware game.

Still, at least it looks like some effort was put into the settings and voice acting. It could have been worse. Like, Mystixx Vampires and Zeenie Dollz worse.

Yeah, remember that crap? https://youtu.be/iK5ipwVecpY https://youtu.be/YFbL1sMkW9E

All we can hope for now is that the writing is decent, and we get a little more worldbuilding.

The art style is interesting, like a mashup of cel shading and comic book styles. This could be pretty cute!

I like the style of the animation, but it seems like the actual movement is... laggy, almost? Like a video that's having just a slight problem buffering... But I'm still excited to see a new series! It looks more action-y than the older webisodes, which is nice.

The animation really reminds me of cut scenes in a child's video game. Which isn't a bad thing or anything. Just an observation. I'm hype that they're coming out with more content at all.

I like the animation and the designs, they're cute. And I like them a LOT more than those "meet the ghouls" animations. At least no one will stab Draculaura with their chins in this one.

I really hope that they bring back our faves with this series. If they're gonna ignore them in the movies, the least they can do is put them in episodes.

I JUST figured out what the animation style looks like!!

The animation from the game is very much like this.. looks like comic books attempting to come to life.
ahh im not sure if its gonna fit here well but i'll give it a go.. just to see some new stories at least!

What's truly bothering me is that Deuce looks the same as before and it's completely jarring. Why still keep his douchey frat boy look? It's so opposite of the reboot's cutesy anime loli style.

Alright.. I am confused. So apparently THIS vampire is Fangelica? But not the Fangelica that Lala adopted? Or is she the same one?
If she's the same one.. why is she so much older in this? She definitely doesn't look like a toddler. 

Mattel can't even keep up with their new canon?

Also, still not a huge fan of the animation. I don't mind the 3d-ish look, but it's like their faces are 2d and look wrong.

It's weird how Lagoona is basically a non-entity in Gen 2.

I do like the idea that this little vampire princess has been hiding for hundreds of years all by herself, it'd be cooler if she were feral though.
