OK, i normally hate everything animated and shown for western kids on something like the Disney channel (in Sweden
Miraculous Ladybug is shown on the Disney Channel). The hysterically shrieking "cute" animals, penguins, fishes or what-
fucking-ever computer made animation that fucks up the children of the western world today. And, when they have grown
into teenagers, then shitty agent TV series en masse awaits them with CIA or FBI Deep State bastards as the heroes.
Thoroughly brainwashed they then start to read the western mainstream media propagating for regime change and eternal
war only in the interest of the weapons industry and the evil bankers. Corrupted politicians enriches themselves. It stinks.

BUT .... my dark view of this rotten world is forgotten when watching THIS animated TV series - Miraculous Ladybug
and Chat Noir. Then i'm sitting there with a BIG smile on my face and totally in love with the lovely Ladybug and her
sidekick and their adventures in Paris. This series rocks and just about everyone watching it adores it, enchanted.
It's super cute, super charming, and with lovely Paris settings as a background to the adventures.
A cute teenage girl superhero and a ditto goodlooking guy one for a youthful audience, maybe mainly young teenage girls
and kids, but also for adults ... well, if you're childish anyway, which i am ... unfortunately maybe, but who cares.

The first DVD has got 7 episodes from the Season 1 of the series, with it's 26 episodes, and we're thrown directly into the
happenings without any background explanation (that comes later in episode 25-26 of Season One, the prequel).
This France-South Korea and Japan co-produced animated TV series is clearly very inspired by Japanese manga and
anime, and the magic girl transformation genre as in i.a. Cutie Honey (made in a great film version in 2004 with Eriko Sato)
and in many other more famous manga series (i'm no manga or anime expert and haven't read and/or seen that many.

..............................................................

Eriko Sato as Superhero Cutie Honey
Transforming when she touched her necklace and saying "Honey Flash". Cutie Honey, a forgotten but super fun film.
Marinette though says "Tikky, Spots on" and transforms into Ladybug

Season 1 Vol. 4 It's Ladybug Episodes 21-26

Yes, and the order of the episodes differ from country to country, these DVD's follow the US televisation

Marinette Dupain-Cheng, a 15-16 years old high school kid, has got a lucky charm, Tikky, a miraculous little creature,
that turns her into the Superhero Ladybug, and her crimefighting sidekick Chat Noir also has got his ditto Miraculous.

Lovely blue-haired Marinette, with a french father and a chinese mother, wants to be a fashion designer and attends
school with her best friend Alya and her huge love interest, the rich kid and teenage model Adrien. Secretely Marinette
fights crime and mysteriously but constantly appearing super-criminals
as Ladybug the Superhero, and this she does with
the help of her equally secretive sidekick Chat Noir - The Black Cat.
Marinette/Ladybug is in love with Adrien and Chat Noir is in love with Ladybug, but what she doesn't know is that the
Cat really is Adrien and he doesn't know that Ladybug really is Marinette. Light, fun crime action and things happening
at school, and romance .... OK, this series may mainly be for young teenage girls, but i love it anyway, it's great.

Cute

The main villain in this series is Papillon - the Hawk Moth, a man with some serious anger problems and with the goal
of stealing the Miraculous thingies/charms of Ladybug and Chat Noir. To make this happen he again and again and ...
sends out Akumas, small butterflies that turn people into super villains. He apparently sees everything that happens,
but not ... for some unknown reason, when Marinette or Adrien transforms into their superhero selves.

Naturally this great series must be watched with the beautiful french original audio - and the theme song is infectious
listening to. Great stuff and the best non-anime animated film i've seen for decades even though computer animated
