  • This is the best animated show from our Canadian neighbors :)

    10
    With likable and relatable characters, a very well developed story arc and a fantastic use of both 2D and 3D animation, this show makes me want to visit Canada some time. For those who are new to Code Lyoko, here's the gist of the overall story: 4 kids discover a virtual world in an abandoned factory where they fight and evil virus dubbed Xana. With the help of there new friend, Aelita, they put a stop to Xana's plans on a daily basis. As the show progresses, you learn more about Aelita's past and how Xana came to be; you're also treated to some really good action scenes involving the kids and Xana's monsters. I highly recommend you you check this show out on netflix when you have the time; it'll definitely be worth it.moreless
  • The theme song!!

    I remember watching this as a kid. I really liked it then, and it's sorta mediocre looking back, but that theme song is amazing. Still gets me
  • My favorite cartoon TV show!

    9.5
    The first time I saw Code Lyoko was when I was 9 years old. We have a local TV channel for kids where I live and Bratz got replaced by Code Lyoko. At first, I was absolutely disgusted that something as "awesome" as Bratz could be replaced by something as "awful" and "for boys" as Code Lyoko. But, my friend made me watch an episode (the one where Ulrich and Yumi are in the steam room sorta thing) and I absolutely fell in love with the show. I watched it every day and would cry on the days that I missed it. They stopped airing it when I was 11. Now, 3 years later, I searched for the episodes on YouTube - and found all of them! I can't wait to get home from school to watch this amazing cartoon! I remember being so in love with Ulrich (I still am a bit) and Yumi and Ulrich used to be my OTP (still are a bit). Now, let's see why I like this show:



    Plot - The overall is so damn original and unique. It's fun to watch and can please everybody. The plots of individual episodes are also very intriguing. I guess the only reason I didn't give this show a 10 is because you can't watch 3+ episodes at the same time, because every episode is the same with a different plot. But this isn't a big deal to me. I still adore it and watch 3+ episodes despite that.



    Acting - Well, there's voice acting, which is pretty good. I just wish that Ulrich and Jeremie weren't voice by girls... on top of that, the same person that voiced Aelita voiced Jeremie, which I didn't like much. But, the voice actors are pretty good, apart from Yumi's at times, but I can pass over all of that and don't consider it a big problem.



    Characters - All of the characters are so different and so unique and I love all of them, even Sissi and her minions! The only character I can't really stand sometimes is Aelita - she was so annoying at times, just like her voice, walked inside the tower so slowly and was so whiny and helpless. But, there were still a lot of times that I absolutely enjoyed her. I don't consider this a problem either. The show wouldn't be the same without Aelita, no matter how annoying she can get.



    Romance - Ulrich and Yumi I love the two of them! I also love how Odd flies solo and is kind of a player and the gentle relationship between Jeremie and Aelita. I know that Ulrich and Yumi didn't officially end up together, but I like to think that they did, and they probably did, so.



    Drama - This show is perfect when it comes to drama. It isn't as dramatic as Mexican soap operas, but still sticks me to my screen, which is amazing.



    Humor - Considering the whole plot of this show, you'd be surprised to see humor, but it's there. It's funny, it's subtle and there isn't too much of it - most importantly, it's realistic.



    Overall - Best cartoon TV show ever! Sure, there were a couple of minor plot, voice acting and character issues, but I'm willing to get past all of them! I'm rewatching the whole series right now (including Garage Kids), I play online games all the time and I would also like to read the books/comics based on it. The new show, Code Lyoko: Evolution started up recently and I do plan on watching it. I'm not the biggest fan of live actors, especially because I don't like the ones playing Ulrich and Jeremie, but it's still Code Lyoko and I love it!moreless

    A group of school children stumble upon a supercomputer one day and discover a beautiful girl living inside. However there is also an evil entity within the supercomputer that influences things in the real world to take it over. So the children must fight off this evil entity while attempting to virtualize the girl while dealing with day to day life. You see its this level of creativity that a lot of new cartoons are missing. A lot of new cartoons have shallow plots with no real creativity or effort put in. But in this show you can tell that the writers are using their brains. A lot of new cartoons also have bland, one dimensional characters. But this show has well developed characters. You have your tech savvy nerdy kid (Jeremy), Your "keep to himself" kind of guy (Ulrich), You have your voice of reason (Yumi), Your laid back fun guy (odd) your sweet, innocent girl (Aeileta) Your stuck up diva girl (Sissy) and your watchdog "big brother" type character (Jim). These are all characters I can understand and appreciate because they all have well defined personalities and aren't just plot objects. This show, like teen titans does a good job at balancing action and comedy. You get just the right amount of both. While a lot of new cartoons rely on low brow jokes such as farting, pooping, or sex, this show has a more intelligent and creative type of humor. Overall I think its an excellent show. It amasses me with its shear level of creativity and I can really tell that this is a show that the writers put a lot of effort into instead of just throwing together garbage for small, ignorant children and making a quick buck.moreless
