I'm not entirely sure in what messed up version of our universe we are right now...

There's this animated show developed by Netflix and Ezra Koenig's from Vampire Weekend, starring talent such as: Jaden Smith, Jude Law, Susan Sarandon, and Steve Buscemi (here's the trailer and some reviews of the show); here are a couple of highlights(?):

SPOILER: Show






And a taste of the real thing, because why not.

Like I have no words I had to watch this trailer twice because its like some weird Evabidged take on anime that's not ADV's Ghost Stories. Seriously I would have loved to have been there when they pitched this to the other studios just to see the executives reactions before Netflix looked it over and went okay here's your money go away and do your thing. :um:

The show can best be described as " pure distilled essence of Tumblr".

That's pretty dark and sounds filled with nudes, social justice, and kittens.

If "Afro Samurai" is considered an anime despite having Sam L Jackson as the voice of the title character then it's an anime.

It's already generating memes. Toblerone is selling out of their giant candy.

Remember Fox's ADHD block with the dissappointing Axe Cop cartoon? This started production for that. Also the only reason Toblorone is such a meme in the show is because it's the only ordinary brand. Everything else is like super high end fashion.

Read my title!

The show looks to be embarassing, though I suppose casting Jaden Smith makes that the shows modus operandi?

ISTR that Toblerone had acquired memetic status previously in relation to Japanese media; possibly having been used as a censor in some scanlation, certainly in some scurrilous use.

This trailer left me in tears. If all of it is this level of hilarious, I need to watch this.
