Ok so I saw someone mention detentionaire and I feel like they didn’t say enough this is a show that needs to be all over Tumblr! It’s a Canadian animation that has run through four seasons and sadly was cancelled before it could finish the five season run needed to finish its story and id really like this show to make rounds on tumblr so that teletoon might be able to get funding for a final season! ^-^ So if you’ll allow my silliness for a bit
Now obviously I can’t warn for every possible trigger but ill try my best!^^ the main things to worry about are suspense, action, loud noises, conspiracy, labs, casual Abelism as they are teenagers and things in that vein. The show never teeters on offensive but if you have trouble with unreality and conspiracy I suggest avoiding this series
Upon first reading the premise ‘kid trying to prove he didn’t do the big school prank to get rid of his year of detention’ you’d probably roll your eyes but this is the most bait and switch storyline you will ever find in cartoons with espionage, conspiracy, experimentation, secret societies. Wow
Huuuugely diverse cast, it actually looks like a real high school. The main character is a korean-canadian male, his best friend I believe is African American and Latin@, and his other friend is a vague European stereotype though its a fictional country and is more insane rather than mocking in my opinion.
The main love interest is a rather spunky Chinese girl I believe? Its not completely specified.
The female cast is hUGE all with important roles to play and stereotypes to subvert, being fully well fleshed characters with good motivation as well as a couple of them being good supportive girlfriends
Such as one episode where the conventionally unattractive girl is chased by several men (one of whom is the school hunk) not because of magic, or a bet, or blow to the head, they just LIKE her.
No cheap shots! Pot shots are never made about things such as lee being smart, or the close relationship he has with another male in the class (and wow how depressing is it I can notice these opportunities they didn’t take?)
All in all its a really pretty show with great art, characters, writing and doesn’t feel the need to make any one ground the butt of a joke that tumblr shoud be eating up
Canada seriously needs to stop being so good at cartoons
