Skyland

Show Summary

In the year 2251, Earth has been shattered into tens of millions of aimlessly drifting blocks around the Earth's core. Oslo, a power-hungry dictator, controls this land, referred to as Skyland. Oslo possesses telekinetic, or "Seijin" powers that have allowed him to seize control of water, the most precious resource on Skyland. Mila, who also possesses "Seijin" powers, has been imprisoned by Oslo. Her children, Mahad, a rebelious teen with expert piloting skills and his sister, Lena, a young female with advanced Seijin Powers, with the help of the Resistance are going to attempt the free their mother from Oslo's evil grasp and destroy the dreaded Sphere. Will they be able to accomplish such a task?

  • vioce acting distroys this show

    5.0
    It is always a huge shame when every part of an animation or film has had tons of love put in to it but then the dub has the most blas direction ever killing the mood entirely -badly synced with the animation, and extremely plastic, however its faults are not completely restricted to the dub it does suffer from substantial filler also, despite this it worth giving the first episode a try the environments and backstory might just make you fall in love with it -if you want another exsaple of this kind of animation -possibly better- which deserves more recognition then I suggest Molly Star-Racer .moreless

    Skyland had explosive potential in everything: music, voice acting, animation, but I don't know what happened, and I think it's because of the directing.

    Yes, the music in it was amazing, and the animation is legendary, but the writing, as good as the overall plot was, was crap! Bleach and Naruto doesn't look good with fillers, why the hell would this? And I'll tell you something, I feel like only 2% of this show is cannon. The sound effects are super quiet when they should be at the same level as the voices, and the voices need to by sync'd better with the mouth movements. I feel like they're trying to do something like anime with mouth flaps but the mouth flaps were just too specific and it didn't work out.



    It's biggest downfall was, once again, side conflicts that had nothing to do with the show. It puts me to sleep whenever I watch it. And I've heard some of these voice actors shout, so I know they were good pics, but they just whined the whole time -- that's definitely the fault of directing.



    As adequate or even below average as this show is, it deserves more recognition of it's existence. After all, it's this show that inspired Iron Man: Armored Adventures after it's completion, which I love.moreless

    I miss this show.
  • Love the graphics, it blew me away when I first saw a glimpse of it on telly. It was so good that I had to get it out on dvd.

    Amazing graphics, there's no doubt about that. Just love love love the graphics, it blew me away when I first saw a glimpse of it on telly. It was so good that I had to get it out on dvd. Even if the story is a little weak at times, the graphics are entertaining to watch. Not quite sure about the dubbed dialogue, and was disappointed that there weren't any subs on the dvd. I have watch the first 13 episodes on dvd. I'm hoping to find the second dvd to watch the rest soon. Perhaps with subs this time.moreless

    The first time I watched Skyland was just a browse through the TV stations. One episode was being shown on ABC Kids Australia. The first impression I had was ... " this is a very impressive animation .. " For over a year I was looking for the DVD and finally bought the Part 1 and recently I bought the Part 2.



    Watched them at home were total blast. I should say the first impression is the graphic ... AWESOME!!! I've been watching this Skyland at least 5 times from Episode 1 to 26. My daughter also loves them and she even watched them more than I do. My Opinions of Skyland.



    PLOT:

    It's a good show for kids. I like the flow of the stories. I found only couple episodes that are a bit boring. The rest are good to excellent.



    ACTION:

    Dogfights and chasing actions are very intense. I would expect to have more human to human air chase so just to balance the actions. I should admit too much on the Robot vs Human in terms of air actions. The duels of Seijin powers are excellent. Love all the actions between Lena/Mila and Oslo/Diwan. GRAPHICS/ANIMATIONS:

    I just mentioned this above .. AWESOME!!!! One of the best animations I've ever seen. Love the motion capture technology and this is really the best thing to make the animation movements look real. I'd say Skyland has the same ranking to top of the line animations like Final Fantasy, Appleseed etc.



    CHARACTERS:

    The characters are good and distinctive. Mahad shows how normally teenagers his age like and at the same time he also shows a lot of cares in many situations especially towards his sister Lena.



    I like the character Lena ... powerful young girl and she is a lot more mature than her age. She is very well made as character and also a good match with Oslo and Diwan. Excellent!!



    Building up the characters like Mahad and Lena are not too slow considering they are only kids and they have so many things to wonder. Again .. for kids, this is a good TV show. I would expect more if this was made as a movie. MUSIC:

    Good music and it would be better to have more intense musics during the duels or dogfights.



    NEED SLIGHT IMPROVEMENT:

    - Balance the Seijin power in Lena. She sometimes shows how strong she is but in the other hand she is weak in battling the same character (still under the sun). I believe Lena should be more powerful than her Mom (Mila). - Make more variety of air fighters and perhaps add more St. Nazaire pirate ships (like Callisto) to help Cortes fighting. So bringing in reinforcement makes it more realistic rather than just fighting the whole robot armies with one flagship and its Mosquitos.



    - More villains would be better rather than just seeing Oslo, Diwan, and all the robot armies.



    - For DVD release, would be nice to have the subtitle option including English.



    I hope there will be Season 2 and at least a movie for this. Love it big time!!! Keep up the good work!!!moreless
