They both feel very similar, almost frighteningly. Characters that are just meant solely to ridicule snobby rich teen girls who are vain, while also showing how hopeless and stupid the rest of the school students are by being followers of these people. Just your usual anti-Highschool commentary going on. I agree with Dudley here, I'm glad no one especially not Marco is actually being forced to be in love with this sort of character, and if they did major changes in their personality would have to be made, I know Trixie had her comic book thing too, but in that same episode she was ditching her friend (whipping girl more like) and tossing gifts into a fire without looking at them, she always looked down on everyone and that was something that was never explained why she had been given this outlook other than "TEH RICH PEEPL ARE ALL EVUL!!". Pacifica Northwest was explained to be an example of bad upbringing but was really a nice person behind it and also considerably brave which made her 'work' as a love interest, at least for now. I don't mind Brittany actually, she's kind of funny and is taken to such an absurd level that is great for bringing the comic relief of schooldays being terrible, and of course show how foolish everyone is for tolerating her, plus unlike Trixie she doesn't have this untouchable aura around her, Brittany is in fact in some ways sympathetic because even though she's being a complete brat, Star really was completely upstaging her at her own party and is constantly attracting trouble and causing her injury. Still, kind of what I meant in my post earlier, its a fun show in some regards and I'm watching it because I love magic-based shows, but I know this isn't going to be the sort of cartoon that stays fresh for long. Stuff is just sort of made up on the fly here for humor, like how Marco suddenly gets motion sickness and they're riding this joke the entire episode. Its fun to see the villains get beat up in comic ways... once. Another thing is the stuff with Jackie, is it going to drag on forever? It would be nice to see her actually speak more than once bi-episodely.
