Hmm. let's see here. It can be summed up in one question. Why do so many people hate the show?
don't get me wrong, the show has its attractive qualities, but it is also incredibly irritatinga and half-a**ed in many ways. Which leads me to my question:
Why all the Danny Phantom hatred? Anyone know?
My theory is it's the following, because they're poorly done:
Voice acting, musical score and soundtrack, and artwork that is only partially aesthetically appealing.
The show, despite it's original concept, falls flat, especially in the audio department. It's easy to hate the way Danny Phantom (the show not the voice actor, Danny's voice is the least annoying of the entire cast)'s audio sounds.
To sum it up. Danny Phantom can easily seem like a big waste of time when you compare it to a clearly superior fellow modern Nick show, Avatar. It's easy to understand why one really caught on and the other (Danny) struggles endlessly to get ratings, only to be cancelled before it decided to get any good on any kind of serious level (Phantom).
Plus, the look of the characters is flat and stiff. When you're doing action adventure, stiff characters look lamely unflexible. At least Aang is flexible enough to fly around and make it look good. There really IS NO comparison. The action sequences look like Butch Hartman trying to do another comedy show with a few weak attempts at drawing fighting moves. And he fails miserably at it. That's not fighting. That's character's partially flexing their limbs.
Any other reviews for this show.
Follow up question, why do so many people adore Avatar? It's a cheezy, A-typical, sad Western attempt at Anime.
