Okay so, like, this is a reboot right? But like at the same time it's supposed to be aimed a new audience, specifically instead of being a show for all ages like the original, this is solely being aimed at the 4-11 (allegedly only female)
demographic? But at the same time it wants to be like the original but also do it's own thing for some reason?
It's half-assed This entire reboot is half-assed and cheap.
-It brings back all the old voice actors, but never even contacted the original VAs for the girls (because they're too expensive probably)
-It keeps the same character aesthetic but essentially removes the thick lines and angles
-It has some familiar things but makes weird changes that don't make sense (Octy is still around but doesn't have a hat, the girls don't have a hotline but get phone calls, the house is the same but the scale is completely fucked, they only remember the announcer says "so once again the day is saved" in one episode and they even get that wrong, etc)
-The animation thinks it's being like the original but is actually dogshit
It literally makes no sense. It wants to be a reboot of a classic series and keep the things older fans remember in it but also do it's own thing while completely shutting out said older fans and only target one specific demographic. It's completely retarded.
I mean isn't one of the defenses for nuPPG that "It's for a new audience, not for manchildren" but the first episode of the show plays out like the audience is supposed to fucking know who everybody is. It doesn't even have the origin story, so clearly, they were making this with the idea people would know that the PPG were a thing even though the show ended over a decade ago. None of this makes any sense
