I like the show. I wasn't knocking it. Just pointing out something I thought would be funny

It is a little off, yeah.

I think the English voice cast is excellent, especially Astro - I can't get his "Please? Pleeease! Pleease. Pleeeeease?!" out of my head - only one that I really don't like at all would have to be Tak. He's a pretty bad character all around.

Hyper Astro isn't really well liked by a lot of the small Tumblr community that I hang around with.

I can kinda understand why but I think it's cute. Reminds me of how he was in the first two episodes of the 2003 anime only more so. Also, I think it's funny. But then, I also like Teen Titans Go and Marvel Super Hero Squad :unsure:

I know there's alot of people who really don't like hyper astro because well, hes not at all like he is in any other version. In fact, hes not very atom like at all. But first of all, obviously, its a little kids show and if he was more like typical astro I bet people/kids would find him dull and boring.

Since watching the first episode though, this astro boy makes me laugh so much. The fact that he just drops all his friends on a dime, just destroys everything doors especially, and calmly calls Tac a piece of useless trash makes him my new favorite astro. lolol

I'm of two minds about hyper Astro, to be honest.
Part of me enjoys his antics because they are pretty funny for the most part, despite being pretty out of character for the Astro we know and love. He makes a lot more mistakes, which I'm also cool with because I love characters that are flawed and make really poor decisions like that.

But on the other hand, the writers take that flawed aspect waaaaaaay too far and at times it becomes less endearing and more frustrating than anything.
He walks a very thin line between cute kid who doesn't know any better and incompetent dingus with superpowers who's going to eventually get all of his friends killed. :I

Despite that, I do really like the show, though. Tac is probably my favorite, but I wish other characters weren't so unnecessarily mean to him all the time.
It's a magical day!

It's almost as if they gave Little Astro some of Jetter Mar's personality!

Hoping that the stream runs a little smoother for everyone this week with the stream that F-Man shared with us last week.

Also, it'll be interesting to see what episodes are aired this week. If it's episodes 3 & 4, then we get to (hopefully) see the entirety of them, and if it's 5 & 6, then we get to see entirely new episodes.

Even this stream seems to be stuttering a bit (on firefox)
Seems to be a bit better on Chrome.
