Ladybug



Announcement: (via AnimeWorld Insider, AnimeNation)

Quote:
The magical girl phenomena is still casting its spells on audiences worldwide. French animation company Zagtoon has partnered with Japan’s Toei Animation to bring Miraculous, a new French magical girl series, to French and Belgium television.

Miraculous, which was previously titled Lady Bug, follows a girl named Marinette and her black cat. The Paris-based action-comedy series follows justice-seeking Marinette, who happens to have super powers. The animation style will be reminiscent of other Toei productions such as Mamotte Shugogetten, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne and Sailor Moon.

Miraculous will be co-produced by Aton Soumache’s Method Animation, well-known for The Little Prince.

Miraculous has already been pre-purchsed by French television network TF1. ”Paris will finally have its superheroes,” said Jeremy Zag, creator of Zagtoon.

According to the Zagtoon official website, Zagtoon has numerous partnerships internationally including Korea, Belgium and the United States. International audiences could expect an English translation and international release of Miraculous in the future.

Paris-based children’s animation studio Zagtoon, in association with French animation studio Method Animation, have contracted Japan’s Toei Animation to co-produce an original French action/comedy superhero animated television series tentatively titled “Miraculous,” originally conceived as a 3D CG movie titled “Ladybug.” The 26 episode series has an $11.2 million budget and is in production now.

Synopsis: (via Zagtoon)
Quote:
Marinette Cheng, a shy high-school student, has inherited some magical ladybug-shaped earrings. The ornaments grant the power of Luck to whoever wears them. Yet there is one condition : they have to be worn in an altruistic manner, or else, beware of the consequences !

l Whenever the situation needs it, Marinette turns into LADYBUG, the guardian angel.

Ladybug saves the World every night thanks to the power of Luck alongside her clingy ally, the Black Cat who has the opposite power. He needs a kiss from Ladybug to free him from his unlucky ring. Ladybug is the first character originated from the Quantic universe.
Full-on budget and Marinette's character design. You can consider me pretty excited.

Wow at that trailer. It's like the creators picked out all the strengths of French pop-culture and Japanese animation and threw them into one show.

Aside from two brief cuts which look to have escaped QC and the horrendous CG pigeons, that looks stylish and slick. It's worth checking out.

I dunno, every time the cat-guy was on screen I expected the Tick and Arthur to show up.

Oh god, a french - japanese collab. I always thought that japanese x foreign collaborations works out better than japanese-only trying to mimic the western feel. As much as I loved Supernatural the live action series, I thought that its anime equivalent fell short, and I felt the same about the Madhouse's Marvel series.

With the collaboration method, both sides are able to come to an understanding of each other's expectations and how to cater to the intended market, while staying true to their respective cultures.

PS: This is why I fondly remember series such as Ulysses 31 and The Mysterious Cities of Gold.

At 2:14, the cat is quite literally among the pigeons...

I wonder what background Marinette will have? If they will even delve into it, I suppose.

I really liked Time Jam(despite some minor over-arching plot grievances =0\), and this looks just as interesting. Particularly how in 'normal mode', she is fawning over the blonde guy and transformed, it's the opposite. Actually quite reminds me A LOT of this. Not saying it will be like St Tail, but based on that preview, I easily recalled it. Must be the whole 'little girl running on rooftops at night' part (>.>)...

"Cheng" suggests she likely have immigrant parents. So, le 13e arrondissement with its Chinatown, Opera, Belleville or Montgallet ("On ne rembourse pas!!" :P).

PS: Every geeks in Paris had its little misadventure in Montgallet, and as a second generation khmer, this song amused me more than anything else.

The video is available for public viewing again!


(I guess that, since the cat was well and truly out of the bag at this point, they figured there was no point in hiding it; though I do hope they consider HDing it at some point.)
