Wakfu: Short Take

I'll post more on My Little Pony and Wakfu when I have a bit of free time, but here's a very quick rundown of the latter:

Wakfu the animated series feels at first like an attempt to either capitalise on or promote (or both) Wakfu the mumorpuger.  And despite a strong opening and some interesting world building, the first half of the series* devolves into an only moderately entertaing travelogue-with-monsters.

Fortunately, once you reach the midpoint, it starts to pick up.  Then it picks up some more.  Then it picks up some more.  Then it picks up a whole lot more, one by one the characters take a well-earned level in badass** and the ending is pretty damn awesome.

It doesn't hurt that much of the second half is spent in the Sadida Kingdom, and the Sadida*** women are gorgeous.

I like the character designs and artwork a lot, the voice acting is pretty solid, and the story does deliver if you stick with it.  Certainly better than you'd expect from a game tie-in.

Recommended.
 
* Actually, the first season from 2008; there's a second season airing right now.
** Or in Evangelyne's case, a level in A-10 Warthog.  Which is the same thing, only more so.
*** Yes.  And the chronomancers are called Xelor, and the healers are Eniripsa.
