New Kappa Mikey Art

Last month I posted news of MTV Networks’ purchase of ‘Kappa Mikey,’ a Flash-animated anime spoof, for global distribution. The intention is to roll out the show on Nicktoons in the US and Nickelodeon Interenational (both under the MTV Networks umbrella) next year. The show, which was created by Animation Collective’s Larry Schwarz, focuses on “once-struggling American actor Mikey Simon as he adjusts to his new role as the biggest anime star Japan has even seen. But fame doesn’t come without a price.” On the heels of this news is the announcement that 4Kids Entertainment, the New York-based provider of children’s entertainment and merchandising, just picked up the the worldwide licensing, marketing and promotional rights for the show, which bodes well for Kappa Mikey’s future. Along with this recent press release comes some new show art, which feels reminicent of Comedy Central’s ‘Drawn Together,’ a show that marries various animation styles into one show. But now that I see the art, I’m starting to think that this show won’t be produced in Flash. The models, especially the anime-inspired characters, are fairly intricate, and might not be very Flash-friendly. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

    This is a pathetic excuse for a show. This is an even more pathetic excuse for an anime. What. The. Heck. This suck-a** no good show’s creator is shameless, thinking of this crap as a kid’s show, or any other show. If a little baby watched it, it would dislocate their brain. Or poison it. Poor innocent baby… And what’s up with the clothes? It’s so unoriginal, and the shading is crap. Everything looks like some hobo was trying to draw on a Seven-Up bottle with an olive green crayon. The drawing was probably trying to be used to impress this girl he met on the street a month ago. But she called him a ‘filthy hobo’ and ran away…anyway, this show is %&@*#!!!!!! On a sidenote, I hate it. I would have written more, but the FBI nows how to track me down……….

    the last two comments were made by two girls who ACTUALLY draw REAL manga very well, read REAL manga, and watch REAL anime! we just don’t want to join a website that supports the crappy, so-called “kappa-mikey”

    [sidenote] definition of kappa mikey: idiotic stupid thing made on macromedia flash.

  6. Anonymous November 22, 2006

    Besides the fact that YOU hate kappa mikey, doesnt make it a hobo show, idiotic stupid thing or suck-*** show. I watch alot of anime, and with that i mean ALOT. Even if its a terrible look-alike of anime, its a great show on Nickelodeon that i and many others love. So zip it in with your hobo thoughts and take them with your parents.

    Did you just escape from you’re local assylum, or are you just retarded? With that attitude, one could only guess what types of sexual abuse you went through. I think you made your point with the statement that you HATE KAPPA MIKEY. People dont appreciate having to read a bunch of bitching about a show that’s for children. You’re worse than David Karresh. Even worse, you start rambling about some faggy analogy about a hobo. How old are you anyways? Anyone over the age of 16 that watches Kappa Fucking Mikey is either gay, or some reefer living in their mom’s basement. Talk about hipocritical bitch.

    Oh, and was all this shit left by the same person? Damn, they must realy be either high or incredibly stupid, like Bush.

  10. omg i love this motherf*ckin show even if it’s so stupid, don`t cuss ’bout it u_u

    This show. I don’t really want to say anything. The dialogue is okay but that doesn’t make up anything.
    The graphics…are the most worst thing I have ever seen. That is flash animation and most animators that are smart enough wouldn’t use Flash Animation. They would use Classical Animation. Flash stays on the computer.
    Characters are very un-proportionate and the style is typical and unoriginal. They should at least established their own drawing style! The only thing I like is the Beat Crusaders Song. Character designs were pretty much horrible. No details, elegance nor flow. Mitsuki’s clothes look painted, Lily looks like some horrible fanart, Gonard is…well, has unecessary lines and Guano…I’ll let you figure it out.
    Animation flow. It’s horrible. No perspectives, Point of Views, lighting, toning. The backgrounds look like crap that has been obscured by more crap…Characters are basically taken from other series and repainted…Which I hate. Overall…It fails to spoof or even make fun of anime. The director needs to quit.

  12. Blah! Blah! Blah! You just go on and on, you anonymous jerk (or jerk)! I’m in a bad mood today and you are trying to insult a good show! This show rocks no matter how you call it, even if this is just an anime parody (this is not a REAL anime, OK?)! I believe you’re the hobo, anonymous person! You can’t even spell “idiot” and “knows”! And you keep on sending INSULTS, what are you some sort of, a propagandist?! I- I mean WE, the fans, wish you’re dead you hipocrite a**hole b***s*** eater! (Great! I gave an argument not a comment! I just did this for defending the fans of this show! Don’t worry, I won’t forgive them for this!) By the way, how did you know that the 2 comments posted are made by expert manga readers?! What are you, some sort of psychic, or were you spying on them?

    So far, I have only seen spoofs of few shonen and shojo with mitsuki being the typical shojo character(thats a good point). Gonard would be a shonen character but not a spoof of one. Lily is just a spoof of a shojo rival. Mikey is no spoof of american cartoons.
    Believe me, if he was, he would be able to do hammerspace, comically stretch to lengths, get the gunpowder/explosion treatment and other rules of Cartoons. Of course, those are the base rules and most American Cartoons can forge their own rules. Though, if creating a spoof of American Cartoons, at least apply Cartoon rules to it. Same goes for Anime Characters. They have their own rules. The anime character spoofs on Kappa mikey are most likely following the Rules of Cartoons which isn’t supposed to happen since Anime’s have their own set of rules excluding Hammerspace and facefaults.
    Of course, there aren’t much ground base rules except the simple ones such as face faults. Though, some animes don’t follow this “anime style” since they don’t use Chibi/Super Deformation except in mugwara theater where they are already deformed. There are some rules that don’t apply to different animes and there are extras that do apply in one universe and doesn’t in the next. Besides that, anime isn’t just one style but a style one can call.
    Kappa Mikey’s art style seems to lack luster and polish, with it’s anime characters being one dimensioned and seems as if it came from a so called “How to draw Manga” tutorial. Mikey himself is not relaly being a typical American Cartoon due to he not applying the cartoon physics which most American Cartoons do apply (i.e. Bugs Bunny, Road Runner, Wile E. coyote, etc.) excluding the new ones, (Grim Adventures, KND, Gym Partners a Monkey, etc.).
    Overall, as I stated, Kappa Mikey isn’t really spoofing Anime nor Cartoon but just exaggerating things that are suppose to be a spoofed (except a few characters). This show is more of spoofing toilet humor and typical Cartoon villains. Don’t understand? Just take a typical cartoon villain and draw him in any ‘anime’ style and call him an anime character. The ‘anime’ characters are more so just there for gags than spoofing anime but spoofing typical parts instead of the majority of typical things in anime (Mitsuki is an exception as she is an actual spoof of the Shojo Demographic though looks older for her own good and design). Mikey himself isn’t spoofing Cartoons nor representing it as he is only representing Larry Scwharz style which is one style only.
    Other characters such as Ozu, yes man and Brozu with No Man are more likely tycoon bosses from Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, redrawn and redesigned into ‘anime’ characters. Support characters look like board stand ups or some fathead posters.
    Perfect spoofs of anime’s came from Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy when Billy gets his eyes zapped and sees Grim and Mandy in anime style, the show that is in Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy that has a helper monkey (that one is a definite spoof to typical sentai/shonen and I applaud to that). Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy is a perfect example of spoofing and references as they spoofed Harry Potter, Sentai/Shonen Anime, and several others. They also had a good cross-over.
    Remember everyone, not all anime’s follow the same rules of ‘anime’ such as ONE PIECE since they don’t have chibi though if spoofing, one would have chibi and typical anime characters. American Cartoons always create their own base laws unless you are spoofing, you follow the old and usual laws of cartoons.

    That is all.

    Spelling corrections…

    Mugwara is actually Mugiwara(Straw Hat).

    Oh and since the main characters aren’t really typical characters, it isn’t much spoofing or making fun of the styles, just spoofing the rules that are applied (Not good). Supporting characters or background characters are usually getting my attention making me feel like I’m in a “Where’s Waldo” book.

  15. This show is terrible. It claims to be anime, or something like it, and it’s not. Nick did good with Avatar; it at least had a point and didn’t force stupid humor that wasn’t even funny. But this, this was just a mistake.

  16. mooboo June 26, 2008

    i don’t think this show claims itself as ‘anime.’ more like ‘anime PARODY.’ ppl shouldn’t get so worked up over that, besides, other shows which are really highly regarded like avatar aren’t anime either, just has anime influences.

  17. Last Alliance July 5, 2008

    Mooboo, MTV claimed it to be the “first anime to be made in America”. Even the commercials call it an anime. I know it’s not an anime, and it is a parody, but the thing is, it sucks as a parody. It’s forcing the idea down people’s throats and it doesn’t feel like it’s natural. What annoys me the most is that it’s not using traditional for it’s base animation. If anime is drawn 2-D and animated traditionally, then freaking do the animation traditionally if you’re basing off of anime itself!

  18. This show is cool. no one should never disgrace a show in such bad ways. for those thinking of anime shows we know this isnt The best. your think of shows like (Ghost In The Shell) And (Death Note) those kind of anime. there are different kinds of anime. like kappa mikey is its own style of anime. you guys who get all mad about somthing that isnt super bad ass looking anime, are just big time anime nerds. dont get me wrong i love anime^^ but no need to put another anime show down so much. just stop being an anime jerk. and love the work they do to make it happen. and anyone who wants to talk crap to what i wote. well… do so, because you are going to make yourself look like a complete fool. Farwell everyone^^

    No offense, really, but that looks like a cat puked, ate it again and pooed it out!
