Last time: The Kickstarter is on it's way to the season two stretch goal, and it's still getting several thousand dollars a day!


A personal letter from Tot himself, with a lot of interesting revelations:

Yeah, i think someone nailed it when they said that the franga was going to be tedious thanks to the long waits.

And holy shit, they better be at mt. zinit by the end of tome 3 or so help me...
>> No. 224393
Well if their latest update is anything to go by we might get our surveys soon, which is nice.

And apparently they'll get the finalized VA cast list sent to them in about 7 weeks. So we'll have to hold out for that, provided we get to take part of the info, before we can dig into who'll sound like what.
>> No. 224438
Is it too late to complain about how the smug duck is getting a interactive comic?
>> No. 224452
A bit. It's been 3 weeks since it's been decided. Besides, not like any of us can prevent it from happening.

Personally, I don't mind. I enjoy gratuitous fanservice and a comic like that might feature it in spades. Even if it doesn't, it's just an interactive comic, not like they focus a whole animated episode around it. For me animated fare>comics in importance, when it comes to Wakfu.
>> No. 224455
I reserve any and all complaints for the quality, it merely existing doesn' warrant any I'll feelings on my part. He was in one episode, where he served as a comical effect. He can hardly be said to be so overdone because they give him a tiny comic.
But I'd rather see him not be used to cencor anything in the special. But rather just have a slight cameo.
>> No. 224458
>But I'd rather see him not be used to cencor anything in the special. But rather just have a slight cameo.

I'd want him to censor something in the special as that'd mean we'd get a scene similar to the ep.14 bath scene, which I enjoyed. I'd prefer no censorship at all, but that's obviously never going to happen, since they need to market this stuff for kids.

Unlike the 3 planned special episodes, the bonus episode sponsored by kickstarter wasn't planned, so I doubt they'll be able to put any deep or gamechanging storyline in it. So I see no harm in some fun with censored frontal nudity in that one bonus episode.
>> No. 224467
> I'd prefer no censorship at all
See that's something I don't get, the wish for him to not be there. I mean I can understand the humorous remarks like "If I see that fucking duck one more time" and whatnot. But not the wish for him to never have been there.

Take the bathing scene for example, there's well carved females that are naked, and a duck with a smug expression that manages to place himself just in the right place to cencor all the just a bit too naughty parts in a funny manner. Take him away, and what is it? Sure it's some boobs and vaginas, which is all nice. But at the end of the day the duck is the entire joke of that scene, we love him, well I do at least, for the comical and smug way he does what he does, and we love to hate him for the comical, smug and well timed cencorship. Without him there's really no joke is there?

And I think that's worth more than the nudity, though I too have been known to enjoy pretty girls being naked. But there's always fan art for that in regards to wakfu.
>> No. 224483

>And I think that's worth more than the nudity, though I too have been known to enjoy pretty girls being naked. But there's always fan art for that in regards to wakfu.

We'll have to agree to disagree. For me "canonical" fanservice/nudity is just on a whole different level of cool. Fan-artists very often tend to completely change the personality of the character and draw them in scenarios they'd never find themselves in and have them behave completely out of character. So often times I find myself looking at Rule 34 of franchises, and feeling I look at some drawing with a similar design rather than at the actual character.

In fact, at the risk of sounding like a weeaboo, Japanese smut is far less guilty of that. Because, over there a lot of the time smut artists are into the franchises they're drawing, while in the western rule 34 scene much of the smut is drawn as commissions, by artists who don't follow the franchise, or in other cases the pic references some meme or is drawn for some contest, or has some pop-cultural reference that requires the characters to behave in an unlikely manner. Not that there's anything wrong with that, people with the talent (or the money to commission) drawing the pics have a right to produce whatever they want. I'm just explaining why nudity in a canonical work means a lot more to me than fan-art.

The nudes of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy drawn by Bruce Timm might not be the most technically detailed Rule 34 of them, but they impress me way more than any fan-art. Similarily, I saw very detailed nudes of Bulma on pixiv, but the times she appears top-less in the manga (despite Toriyama's simplified drawing style) titilate me way more.

Because, for me, when someone heavily involved in drawing the official work (or even better the sole original creator) draws the character nude, only then does it feel like I'm looking at the actual character, fan-art is nice, but it's not the same level. Especially, when it comes to franchises like Wakfu where 70-90% of smut is drawn by artists who hardly know the characters they're drawing.

And I'm aware this post reads like someone autistic wrote it, who overthinks stuff majorily, but you said you "don't get it", so I was merely trying to explain my thought process, so that you better understand it. I totally respect your point of view.

Besides, as I said, I'm aware they'll never do uncensored nudity in Wakfu, they market the franchise for kids, so they'd have to face a huge backlash. It's fine and I understand it. A duck censor is fine, too, just not what I would prefer.
>> No. 224489
My problem with Smug Duck has more to do how people wouldn't shut up about it and that stupid tub scene. To me, It's like a teacher rewarding a student for being aggravating.

Also, while it's cool that they are kind of making something because of the community, an interactive comic of a toy duck just seems stupid.
>> No. 224494
But it's par for the course. Love it or hate it, Ankama loves to do silly random stuff like that, be it as cameos or whole one-shot comics or shorts.
>> No. 224524
> My problem with Smug Duck has more to do how people wouldn't shut up about it and that stupid tub scene.
Now that I can relate to. But I don't have a problem with a small interactive comic because at the end of the day he's been in two episode (cameo in upcoming special episode counted), and will get a small interactive comic.

Which doesn't seem like all too much. But we'll see where it all ends up.
>> No. 224529
I agree. But then I remember that the other incessantly parroted wakfu joke they could have used (TWENTY MINUTES) is a huge spoiler.

Changing the subject: do you think they'll release all the voice actors in a list, or will they draw it out for suspense?
>> No. 224531
The more recent puffy vulva isn't really that big either, nor appropriate. As for VA's, I think it'll be one release, but I think they'll wait until they've done the dub.

There's some more information here on the page for Cartoon Movie Festival.
>In the magnificent city of Bonta, twelve-year-old Joris whiles away happy days with his adoptive father, Kerub Crepin, an old cat man.

>All that changes the day Joris is kidnapped by Julith, a witch who has set her heart on destroying Bonta. Julith alone knows that Joris is the unwitting master of the Ebony Dofus, a dragon's egg whose power can make her wildest dreams come true. With the help of his new companions, Joris will finally be able to prove his worth as the only person who can save Bonta.
>> No. 224643
I can't help it, I just don't feel excited about the Dofus movie. Kerub's a fun character for 11-13 minute long segments, but I can't see him carrying a feature film.

I also fear that should the movie underperform, it might kill any lingering hopes of a Wakfu movie and there's already close to zero chances of a season 3
>> No. 224644
Well presumably Kerub won't play a big role in the movie since it's about Joris proving his worth. Sure he'll be there, but probably not carrying the movie.

Though I do disagree anyway as I'm pretty sure I would enjoy a Kerub-centric movie, but that's just opinions.
>> No. 224663
Yeah, the blurb makes it sound like the whole movie is about Joris with Kerub being a supporting character. Even though the premise seems a bit generic, i'm sort of glad they're finally focusing on the guy.

Also, I've been told Julith is a new character or at least i haven't found anything about her outside the film.
>> No. 224960
Ye she seems to be new.

And I'd be willing to wager the boufbowler is going to turn out to be a disappointment to Joris when it comes to being a real her.
>> No. 225157
Assuming that iop is in the pics we've seen, it looks like there's going to be a Eva/Grovy dynamic with him and the girl.

Also, according to /coc/ the movie isn't going to be completely kiddy.
>> No. 225214
More specificlly according to Tot. But I think that's just promotion/shilling. No producer's gonna say "Our movie's totally aimed at kids, you older teenagers and adults don't expect anything really serious".

You always say "oh yeah, you guys wanting more mature stuff will be entertained, too!" whether it's true or not.
>> No. 225231
True, but i guess i sort of believe him. If it's true, i think it would be more under the lines of wakfu.
>> No. 225623
inb4 it's appealing to mature audience due to badly done drama. I jest of course, or do I? We'll see, eventually. If anything the OVA's have a larger chance to include that.

On tabletopday.com you can search for local participating stores. This page lists the swag:
I don't know if you have to do anything specific to get it, I just watched Wil Wheaton's announcement on YouTube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOQpOOLYtY4 ) and apparently they're free, you just need to go and grab them. Maybe each store has a different policy on that.

Some wakfu news that i yanked from /co/:

Apparently, they're going to show the first episode of the three part special during the convention. Someone who knows french could help clarify.
>> No. 225739
Clarify what?
>> No. 225740
Whether it's true that they're showing the first episode of the special at the convention and maybe when that convention is happening (May 2nd-ish?). Stuff like that.

I don't want to be saying stuff that isn't true.
>> No. 225741
I think you got the basics down. Preview of the three-episode special at a convention May 2nd-4th. I think it also says they'll do the screening three times, once each day.

The OVA did air at the con, but we're waiting on a plot summary. Cam rip is probably unlikely. Besides that, they had a Q&A session about the game.

I'm surprised we haven't gotten a plot summary yet but we still have two more days.

Finally got some spoilers, although it doesn't really reveal anything we didn't know or could figure out.

Pics has what i'm saying but in more detail probably.

Eva and Grovy did have two kids: an iopette and a cra boy. The main bad guy is the king of frigost, which is believed to be Count Harebourg. It sounds like they're playing up the Yugo/Amalia relationship a bit more this time around.

Apparently, the special is supposed to come out or air in October.

For now, take this with a grain of salt because it might be erroneous.
>> No. 226968
I like how you left out the thing about Iop.
>> No. 226970
That's because i didn't know that. I'm reposting from the thread on /co/ and he didn't mention anything about iop. Also, i don't know french.
>> No. 227210
Someone who saw the ova at the con was nice enough to do a Q&A session about what happened. While it seems fairly trustworthy, do take the spoilers with a grain of salt.

Massive spoilers incoming

Yugo and the rest of the brotherhood reunite in the sadida kindgom thanks to Otomai (the alchemist who created ogrest)

Yugo has barely grown, Grovy and Eva have two kids, a Iop girl and a cra boy, but hey are not twins, Ruel's Phorror has grown quite a bit, Amalia looks hotter
>Is it true that Harebourg is the main bad guy?

>Why is otomai still alive?
Your guess is as good as mine, he isn't even aged or anything

>What's the story about Grovy with an aura?
He's using the Iop's Wrath power he goes full berserk and defeats Harebourg minion's it's triggered when he sees his children about to fall to the lava
>Is Chibi, Joris, or anyone else of note with them in the kingdom
Chibi, who's now a toddler and Grouga stay at Alibert's Inn

Joris, however goes with Adamai and Otomai in search for other dofus, but in the end It is revealed that the true Joris is frozen along with kerubim and his brother.
He wants to marry Amalia, he plans n using the energy of the sadida kingdom to warm up the Frigost

>Is there any more hints of Amalia and Yugo getting together?

Yes, they blush and he Stops Amalia's wedding

>What are the kids like?
They are adventurous... the little girl even fuses with rubilax during a fight, the boy uses an arm crossbow like cleophee
>Does Ruel actually do something?
He uses the same trick moumune used of fusing with his phorror, it was quite nice to see actually

>Remington and/or maskemane show up?
Not yet, but then again I was hoping to see goultard and others, we'll have to wait for the other specials

>Any moments that stood out to you?
The whole fight against the Tormenters, first they get caught on ice, then Grovy and Eva's children show up, Rubilax possesed Iop girl was awesome and Grovy going full Iop was also quite nice, it may be because im a grovy fan

>Was it good? Did you liked it?
I liked it a lot, even if I didn't understood all of what was being said and my friend had to explain/translate for me, The ending is kind of a cliffhanger and mystery I can't wait to see the rest
>What is the cliffhanger?
>Does it look like Harebourg's going to the main bad guy throughout the specials?

Yes, along with another one maybe, Harebourg escapes A-la-Nox at the end after Amalia attacks him after he defeated Yugo The fake joris who went with Adamai and Otomai is last seen doing an evil laugh

>> No. 227211
Final note: He might come back tomorrow to do some more questions.
>> No. 227217
>Does Ruel actually do something?
It's funny but it hurts.
>> No. 227221

It sounds like he actually does something this time even though, even though it's something his grandma did. Still, the the thought is there and it does sound badass.

I think the biggest "WTF" moment is the fake Joris/real joris stuck in an iceberg with Kerubim and his bro. I"m not sure if this is the most brilliant turn of events in cartoon history or the dumbest. And then there's the implications of a fake Joris who might have been evil the whole time.

Also same man has just posted a summary of the episode in /co/.

And we don't even know how long they have been frozen.

For all we know they could have been all right up to before the beginning of the special

>> No. 227283
Unless Kerbim's and his brother are immortal, I think the most logical explanation is that they were frozen since the dofus era (as long as Ankama's going with the logic that being frozen in ice=cryogenic sleep).

Also, while i don't quite want to completely discredit the notion of real joris controlling fake joris, i would think if fake joris was controlled by real joris, real joris and friends would be free from the ice prison by now unless it was recent event. Even then, i think fake joris would be like "That harebourg is a dick, don't trust him. He has has the real Joris frozen in his evil lair." And of course, there's the whole evil laugh thing at the end of the episode unless the person misinterpret that.

Now i'm curious if real joris is the joris they showed in the teaser (the one with the mouth) and that fake joris's design is the same one from the series (the no mouth one). Next thread on co i'll ask and see if the guy who saw the special can answer. That and what design their using for Harebourg in the special.
