It's an awful lot like the original show. There seems to be more attention to continuity, the vocal performance is more natural, the cahractrs are styled a bit more realistically, and the animation is smoother (but that isn't hard to do). Apart from that, it seems like more of the same, which is not necessarily a bad thing.Originally posted by Joe Tully
For some reason, I missed Speed Racer during the premiere weekend and I more or less forgot about it soon after. I'm going to try to catch it this weekend (Sun. at 4, right?) but I was wondering what the opinions on it are. I've done a search and don't find much discussion on it past the premiere. So, is there anything I should know about the story, is it good, etc.? Is Nick even doing anything to promote this show? I've already read about the dub being typical DIC work, but is there anything else people can tell me? And of course, feel free to use this as a general discussion thread of the series so far.
