    Is it just me or does the animation style in the preview look a lot like the animation used in teen titans?

    Not really impressed with the new animation from the clips I've seen. If they could move toward the type of animation Generator Rex used, it would have worked better. It seems as though they are moving backward rather than forward.

    Animation leave more to be desired, but if the storylines are well crafted I could forgive it.

    I've actually grown used to the animation now, but it's still a bit disappointing.

    I don't mind the new animation style. In fact, some of Ben's aliens look a little better. NRG's design in particular is more detailed.

    That would have been nice, especially for the girls... Man, I loved Raven back then! -- But, the way it is now, I hate it. Gwen looked like... I have no word to describe how she looked. And the rest? I'll give the series another 2 episode to convince me to continue watching, after that I have better plans for my TV-time.

    No, it looks more like Transformers animated.

    Does the animation bother me? Positively not.


    I don't hate Kevin because of the way he was drawn though I will admit that he might need a hair cut sometime.


    Why let the animation dissaude me from watching the rest of Omniverse when I canget used to it for the rest of my life?


    I would like to congradulate CN and Derrick Wyatt for the best installment to the Ben 10 saga.

    I don't like the animation at all. For instance, take Max and what they did to his eyes. Even the Omnitrix symbol on the aliens looks off. I would have rathered they stick to what they had prior or move towards Generator Rex.

    Mr. Baumann is so different I only figured out it was the same character from Ultimate Alien through Wikipedia. Kevin and Gwen look ridiculous. I also feel the series went back to its Ben 10 roots and is a bit more childish then the previous two. You'd think the series would keep evolving along with its audience. It's not bad, but I hope they go back to the feel of Ultimate Alien, which in my opinion was the best one of all so far.

    I think it evolved from kiddy-edgy into wacky-cool. It's easy to have strong plots when everything is trying to be somber and serious most of the time, when the show's actually having fun most of the time and still pulls a good, mature plot then it's a victory.

    I've gotten used to the art and animation now. Gwen doesn't look so bad to me. Kevin's design still bugs the crap out of me.


    Omniverse is made by the same people who made Transformers Animated. The show progressive got darker and more serious storylines as it went on. Omniverse seems to be walking a similar path. Maleware is a dark character. I don't mind Ben 10 going back to its roots with more zany episodes and comedy. The downside to AF/UA was while they did good dark and serious storylines, but their light and fluff episodes are mixed.


    Both writring teams have their strengthens and weaknesses.

    Gwen's still pretty hot even though she looks a lot more like Velma. Kevin, it still looks strange. A pro for the art style is that they didn't copy and past heads/faces of present day characters onto the past characters *cough* Forge of Creation.
