Whoa. I've been so busy trying to keep up with the requests and working on the Multiverse's reboot that I haven't posted a journal since New Year's Eve. :noes: Let's fix that.

Ladies and Gelatin, Toys and Girls; welcome to the first Ruben's Review of 2016! :party: And to start out this year, I want to talk about a very special show that I've come to love. Straight from the land of the Mona Lisa, the Eiffel Tower and, apparently, not french fries (seriously, go fig. :hmm:) comes Miraculous Ladybug!

Or as it's known here in the U-S-'o-A; Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. Again, go fig. :hmm:

The story follows the adventures of a girl named Marinette Dupain-Cheng. She lives in Paris, France, goes to school, has a B.F.F., has a mean girl enemy and has a crush on the local dreamboat. Is there something I'm forgetting? :idea: Oh, yeah! She also has a secret identity as the town's superhero. :D Well, one of the town's superheroes, anyways. :B Whenever trouble strikes in her city, she uses the power of this special earrings she has to turn into Ladybug; a superheroine whose powers consist of a yoyo that she could use like a grappling hook and another ability that we'll get into later.

The other superhero of the city goes by the name of Cat Noir; a cat themed hero whose powers are based around his ninja staff and his claws, which can cut, rust or bust (say that 3 times fast) through just about anything. In real life, Cat Noir is Adrien Agreste: Marinette dreamboat crush. And the weirdest thing is that neither of them even know about it. Their secret identities are so secret that Marinette doesn't know Adrien's and vice versa. It also doesn't help that their normal selves and super hero alteregos have different, almost opposite, personalities. Marinette is sweet, shy and extremely adorkable while Adrian is kinda modest and kind teenage boy. While Ladybug is brave and confident but can get a bit annoyed by Cat Noir's snarky and flirtatious attitude.

To put it as bluntly as possible: as civilians; they're kinda like Flash Sentry and Twilight Sparkle and as heroes; they're kinda like Sly Cooper and Carmelita Fox.

Ok, now that we've met the heroes, let's see the villains. Starting with the main villain: Hawk Moth. What his goal is to get Ladybug and Cat Noir's Miraculous: the objects that control their powers (Which are earrings for Ladybug and a finger ring for Cat noir) He does this by targeting random people in the city and then turns them into super villains. And he doesn't target necessarily bad people. He just uses certain emotions like sadness, anger, jealous and so on to his advantage. He does that  by "evil-izing" different people akumas: special butterflies that possess an object that the person is holding and is usually based around the powers the villains have.

If the akuma possess an umbrella, the villain controls the weather.

If the akuma possess a cellphone, the villain can do things like pause people in real life.

And if the akuma possess a bird whistle, the villain can...control birds. Ok, that last one's kinda weak in my opinion. And my last name's Falcon. :roll:

My personal fav was the villain from the most recent episode: the Evillustrator. Ok, admittedly, it's the lamest villain name I ever heard since "Hawk Moth". And the guy's powers aren't really that original. The kid was an artist before he was akuma-ized so he his power is that anything he draws on this little tablet of his turns to life. But still, it's a classic power. And they even showed that he can also erase existing things out of real life. Which is awesome. :D And it was a bit of a spark of inspiration for me.

On a final note; Ladybug's ultimate power. Remember that yoyo thing I mentioned? Well, not only does it work like a grappling hook and can be spun around, giving it a sort of helicopter or shield effect, but it can also give her the "Lucky Charm". Once per episode, her yoyo will produce a random object that she needs in order to save the day. The objects range from toys, household appliances and literally anything. And how Ladybug finds out how to use them is cool too: she goes into a type of vision where everything is black and white and she sees the things she need to use her lucky charms on to save the day. It's kinda like her eyes are saying "Do this, then this and then that" to her. Also, you guys may remember from my Character Concentration on Toodles that I like the idea of an tool that's arbitrary and yet, just what the doctor ordered. Not only is this that, but it's even better than I could ever think of. :D After she uses her charm to save the day, she brakes open whatever object the akuma possessed and then "de-evili-zes" it back into a normal butterfly. Then she throws the lucky charm in the air and it, somehow, explodes into a bunch of magical bugs who zip around and undo all of the damage the villain did. That's crazy on it's own, but it's not bad. It's certainly not, say, a deus ex machina because they use it after they save the day on their own.

So that's Miraculous Ladybug in a nutshell. And what do I think of it? I personally love it. :D It's energetic, it's got great characters, great villains, even better heroes. The powers everyone has and gets are pretty cool and the show always leaves me on the edge of my seat and waiting eagerly for the next episode. The only bad thing I could say is a few nitpicks. Like how the relationship between Marinette and Adrian can get a bit cheesy, the cliche about Marinette's BFF is seeking out to unmask Ladybug, and there's this one friend of Adrian's that I can only described as "the most 90's-est stereotype ever". But other than that, I don't really have anything bad to say about this show. :D It's a wonderful little series and it deserves all the love it gets.

Also, I found out through the grape vine that this show was made by the same minds who brought us Totally Spies. To which I thought; "It's a tv show about a hot chick kicking ass in skin tight outfit: of course it's made by the guys behind Totally Spies". :giggle:

Thanks for reading! This is Ruben Falcon, signing off; reminding you to never lick a lampshade on the 30th of Wednesday.

Oh, one last thing before I forget! How are underpants better as cannon fodder than cannonballs, exactly?

I'm too busy wondering why the heck was a chest of underpants on the ship in the first place.
