Ok, everyone knows that there'll be a new season of Code Lyoko coming out after waiting five damn years until the news came out. Well I was looking forward to seeing a new season sense all the other good shows were either being A) played to death and treated like its better than any other show until it's quality is run dry or B) canceled after their first or second season with no real reason as to why.

With all the bad runs other shows are having I was hoping this would be spared. However, this was not the case. The new "season" which will be called Code Lyoko Evolution will be done in a live action/animation with the animted bits for Lyoko and the live action bits for the real world. Now I wouldn't have much issue with the show as the plot takes place a few years after the original show ended with the gang now having to fight a new human enemy named Alan Meyer, who is a supporter of Xana.

These in and on itself doesn't sound too bad but after looking at some of the designs they're going to use... its going to suck, HARD! For starters the live action, LIVE. FUCKING. ACTION!! Why the hell is it going to be live action to begin with!? The show worked perfectly with the hand drawn/ CGI animation for the original show, but with live action? Theres already a bad history of live action/ animated shows that ended up with bad animation, crappy acting, and a whole bunch of which resulted in getting axed after a short time.

Secondly the designs, frankly they look stupid. The designs for Lyoko look half-assed hardly look like the ones from the first show. The character designs on Lyoko don't look that thought up either, all it looks like they just took the designs from the forth season and slightly modified them and thats it. This leads to another question why didn't they change the character designs to begin with!? Some of the characters Lyoko designs like Will for example still looked like he was possessed by Xana so why didn't they change his design to make him look NOT possessed! And judgeing from a lot of other people who have seen the designs for the factory as well as the other designs for the show, it sounds as though they either forgot what the original designs looked liked and made up new ones with no cosideration of the first show or like the character's lyoko designs, were thought up half-assed.

Now I'm hopeing this new season doesn't show in the U.S. but that doesn't sound like that would happen anytime soon but lets just hope it doesn't.

---EDIT---
Well it looks like they just released some new pictures for the gang's 3D models which you can easily find by browsing. Well I looked at the designs abit closer and as I said before...they suck >.>. However, I did notice alittle something thats new on the models is that they now have coloring in the eyes and that the eyes are more anime-ish as well as changing the heads and eyebrows. I don't know what to say about this, anime? Really?  

---EDIT---
Wow just wow, I found some more interesting little jems here about the new season and frankly for the live action portion of the show, they haven't even started yet! This is really bad, the new season is supposed to airing in the fall and doesn't live action shows take more time to produce anyway? Well doesn't this help my skepticism with the new season :sarcasm: Of course these aren't professional actors the creators are working with but amuaters, mostly kids from the streets!

As some people mentioned to me about links and pics involving the show there are people here on dA who have begun uploading information about the show as well as pictures involving the new character designs for Lyoko so I'll give you links to them so it would be easier for you.

fav.me/d4xmlhn Yeah the designs look very similar to the season four outfits, you can tell they put alot of work into them >.>

fav.me/d51d6fs Gee after all the crap Will got they didn't even bother to put him up with the others?

Of course there are other Journal entries that can explain the mess better than I can and plus they have more links to the new season

I figured that but it looked like the creators either forgot about that detail or just didn't care and frankly I don't really like his design that much

Meh, I honestly couldn't care less for William anymore... He was only badass because of the Super-smoke technique.... With or without him, the show will be the same..Idk why thousands of ppl will have heart attacks if he's not with the Lyoko Warriors. :shrug:

I agree with you...Live Action...is one thing..but picking random people off of the street is too much for me... They should AT LEAST get lookalikes.... but the whole thing should just be a FULL animation... no Live Action...I think the Live Action thing is just a let down...

Exactly!! an entire season of Live Action...which...might be crappy...I'm gonna have to imagine what it would look like in FULL anime....

This only makes me miss the ORIGINAL Code Lyoko more...

I think everyone is forgetting that from seasons 1-3, their outfits didn't change at all.

Everything will probably come together and be really nice when it actually airs.

Yes to be fair they didn't change the outfits for season one through three, probably because they weren't going to change them. The only real beef with the designs was that they could of done alot more with them sense its supposed to take place afew years after the fourth season, not to mention they changed the faces instead of the outfits

And plus how is it going to fair well with kids right off the street who are inexperienced with acting and who probably have little to no resembliance to the characters themselves?
