The Amazing Digital Circus

What was this about?
Ep 2 is even more colorful and asinine than the pilot, there's just more sad background music and an incredibly obvious "dark" twist at the end that might just be gallows humor.

Is this guy trolling?

      13-24 year olds, allegedly.
      But it really does start to feel like some weepy cartoon for little kids aged 6 to 11 the likes of Steven Universe.
      It doesn't even have sex jokes, gore, or actual strong language like all those "adult" web cartoons little kids love or the book that inspired it, and is generally less fricked up than many shows for young kids.

        Rule of thumb for future autuers:
        Always aim 10 years older than your target audience. Make a show for 30 year olds if you want 20 year olds, 13 year olds if you want the under 12 audience and so on.

              Late but that's what I'm counting on. Ragatha is 100% trying to be the best friend she can be. But because of the way she copes, Ragatha has completely given up on trying to escape and has deluded herself into committing to her role as the voice of reason/sister figure of the group. Her and Pomni were very similar when they both arrived (according to Kinger) and I'd love to see how she can balance keeping her facade alive while also trying not to revert to her more batshit self.

            I assume that Zooble was glad Caine left because they can't start the funeral until he does, because Caine is absolutely the kind of person to completely ruin a funeral. I don't think he can physically feel sad; a funeral is completely alien to him. He'd be trying to turn it into a game while everyone is mourning.

              Zooble just hates Caine overall, which is probably why she doesn't even bother with the adventures anymore half the time. Did hear that she's actually coming along for the haunted mansion adventure at least.

              Do you think Caine can even be reasoned with in this regard? Like, if one of the humans just asked him to please leave them alone and give them a private human moment to do human things, would he even consider listening?
              I know he's not malicious and he seems to earnestly want to make the humans happy, but could a human possibly get through to him and explain that he's just making them more miserable?

                The exit thing is the biggest thing making me think he's somewhat benevolent.
                He can't make an exit leading to the outside of the simulation, because he only has power in the simulation.
                But he can't understand that the only reason they want an exit is because they want to leave the simulation, and that an exit leading anywhere else would not make them happy.

      I get more existential (and other kinds of) dread from watching shit like Ren and Stimpy than this show. I've seen various kids cartoons take similar subject matter and turn it into a joke or put an otherwise positive spin on it. The circus creator either severely underappreciated how disturbing shows for kids can get, or he's just straight up bullshiting about being upset that his show attracted toddler audience.

      It's just so weird to see this guy b***h and moan about it for months on end, but then his own show proves the elsagaters right.

      Yeah even though Pomni was at pretty much her lowest when Gummigoo got popped just knowing that the others care enough for each other with shit like having funerals makes her feel just the slightest bit better. Though honestly if the funeral wasn't ready or whatever Pomni might've abstracted right there and then.

      Idk why you explain all this shit to me instead of addressing my points. I watched the ep so I know what happens in it. I just think it's childish and underwhelming compared to the pilot.

      >Ep1 ended with her admitting her situation to herself
      >Ep2 starts with her seeing her own abstraction as inevitable
      Only like 12 hours passed in universe.
      She just had a nightmare you sperg.

      >Sees the adventure as pointless, is a killjoy the whole time
      That's Zooble, and literally every single human in the circus (and apparently some NPCs) because the adventures are pointless. Ragatha's enthusiasm is fake, Gangle is sad, Kinger is checked out all the time, and Jax craves ultraviolence that's unobtainable in Caine's digital world because everything has to be child-friendly, so he was getting pissy by the end. Pomni was just getting bullied by Jax like everyone else, then she got separated from the group by accident and discovered an unfinished area of the digital world. It's just a repeat of the pilot's plot beat by beat, except it's in a new area, and Pomni discovers the power of trauma bonding at the end.
      >We learned more about the fragile structure of each adventure world
      IIRC it was already implied in ep 1.
      Ep 2 even has a similar vore monster, Gummigoo or whatshisface is kinda like Kaufmo except he talks more, and the fan-favorite yuri princess doesn't really do anything. Was this ep really necessary?
      >and the party got characterised
      Yeah, in the pilot lol. Nothing new was really added. This ep feels like it came out of an episodic adventure cartoon for little kids with 200 formulaic episodes, not a psychological horror miniseries for people aged 13-24.

        That is exactly why this episode is the way it was. the moment is still fresh. Pomni's not going to get over anything in a day, and the writers wanted to establish this before doing more stories. What reaction did you want her to have?
        >She just had a nightmare you sperg.
        Why did she have that nightmare?

        >That's Zooble, and literally every single human in the circus (and apparently some NPCs) because the adventures are pointless
        Zooble excused herself with apathy, which isn't the same as Pomni's quiet cynicism. Everyone else plays along with the adventure. Ragatha is pushing herself to enjoy it because she wants the team to enjoy it, Gangle's weepiness is comedic, Kinger is supportive when he's checked in, and Jax's eagerness to subvert the adventure shows him as arguably the most invested. All of them who go are playing along. Except Pomni. Pomni barely pipes up except to call the whole thing a larp.
        I'm glad we can agree on the trauma bonding bit, but I suggest you actually re-examine the pilot if you think it was the exact same as episode 2.
        >IIRC it was already implied in ep 1.
        What was implied? NPCs having enough autonomy to have an existential breakdown when faced with the truth of their circumstance? We didn't see that in ep1 at all.
        >Nothing new was really added
        We learned there are new adventure worlds and how glitchy each of them are. We saw other expressions, like Jax flinching away from a funeral service. We got worldbuilding for NPCs and how they can contrast with the 'human' characters.
        Primarily, Pomni's arc progressed as I described, and the party established itself as a force that's ultimately supportive, supportive in a way that Pomni clearly values. Not bad for a second episode.

        I don't think OP cares. He just wanted the current TADC "general" to start up with negativity.

            The only thing it fleshed out was the one-off character who got unceremoniously killed off at the end of the episode. It's another ep in in a row where the protagonist hardly interacts with the other main characters, and she's either saved by Caine from the glitch or she saves herself, so when she comes to trust the others at the end it feels unearned.

            Also, maybe it's just because this ep was was a total rethread of the pilot, but Pomni was pretty boring in it. I'm hoping she's not the kind of protagonist that's only good for exposition, and if so, that we are not stuck with her POV for the rest of the show. Jax begins looking more and more like her co-protagonist, and the other human denizens like unimportant joke characters, which is disheartening because I wanted them to be an ensemble. Now I'm sort of waiting for him to steal the show like N in the drone cartoon.

              NTA but that's straight up wrong, in this episode we saw how Pomni was feeling insecure due to feeling like no one really cared about her and how she would end up like Kaufmo, in the end she finds out she can trust and rely on them, she is also reminded other people got their own problems and stop focusing only on her own misery, we also saw several of her traits like how she is considerably more spiteful on Jax bullshit than the others.

                All of them will end up like Kaufmo. Life in the circus is hellish and it ends with abstraction. That's what the pilot is about, it doesn't need further deliberation.

                Plus, wasn't Pomni meant to be a Christ-like figure, or at least the straight man of the group? What's the point of making a whole another episode where she runs around screaming and making silly faces and worries about obvious shit? That's boring and lame, plus, none of her expressions from ep 2 come close to the pilot's silly faces.

                Honestly, I was expecting a timeskip where she's already adjusted to the life in circus and done with Jax's bullshit, but it looks like she's still his punching bag and so is everybody else. Why is Pomni the protagonist if she's like everybody else?

                I think the episode is good because we see Pomni is clearly worried about how her time here will be transient and she'll ultimately be forgotten. She will abstract and people will forget about her. Her experience with Gummygoo and seeing the other members of the Circus hold a funeral for Kaufmo show her that that doesn't really matter. People care about each other regardless of how "real" things are here. She cared about Gummygoo even if she was just an NPC and everyone cared about Kaufmo even though he abstracted. I really liked that things had a more hopeful message about the situation this time around.

                Ending like Kaufmo is clearly about being forgotten, she found hope in them making a funeral for him, she found out she will be missed and that others will care which made her imminent fate less scary. She felt alone and that's no longer the case.

                protagonists in "stuck in another world" scenarios often have the meta-role of being the "Audience Surrogate", being the fresh member of the circus, Pomni knows as much about her new home as we do, the Audience will learn alongside her about the circus and rest of the cast, its one of the most common protagonist tropes

                The theory that he's the dev or some other important figure seems more and more likely. Which is not a good thing, because it just means the show is extremely predictable. I mean, the Gummigoo twists sure were...people predicted the plot before the ep came out.

          Surely there's a way to do this more efficiently. I thought every episode was supposed to be devoted to a different main character, but it's another Pomni (+one-off OC) ep with with little to no plot and character progression.

          >All of them who go are playing along. Except Pomni. Pomni barely pipes up except to call the whole thing a larp.
          Because they're used to it, and Pomni was too busy being Jax's chewtoy. And like I said, that was already established in ep 1.

          >What was implied? NPCs having enough autonomy to have an existential breakdown when faced with the truth of their circumstance? We didn't see that in ep1 at all.
          That Caine can snap them in and out of existence. Bubble and Caine are AIs too (allegedly) and they're pretty advanced, also we don't really know if the humans in the circus are really humans. It's not hard to predict that eventually there will be some AI with existential crisis. Also the trailers kinda spoiled the Gummigoo twist ages in advance.

          >We learned there are new adventure worlds and how glitchy each of them are.
          Already implied in ep 1.
          >We saw other expressions, like Jax flinching away from a funeral service.

            There are times to briskly move along, and there are times where it's best to chew a moment. Neither style is universally better than the other, it comes down to execution. Be careful not to judge it for what you want it to be.

            >they're used to it
            Yes, and Pomni isn't. Ep1 she was in disbelief and moved to despair, ep2 she was cynically depressed and ends it a little more hopefully. I don't expect her character to have jumped to acceptance or joy in the next episode, or what you think she should be, because that's not how thhis shit works

            >That Caine can snap them in and out of existence
            My homie, did you see any other Gummigoo moment besides when he gets snapped out of existence?

            >Already implied in ep 1.
            We saw Pomni find a leftover doodad the developer Caine forgot to delete that led to unused content. We did not see her clip out of bounds in episode 2. And yes this is your hint to expect more game-related glitches in episode 3, please don't act betrayed when it happens.

            >He was more expressive while getting frustrated with the world not playing along with his psycho shit.
            Iunno, sometimes it's the quieter things that speak louder

            >Why did she have that nightmare?
            Because she just went through that nightmare? There's really nothing deep or surprising about the fact that a newcomer to the world of existential horror is bummed out and has bad dreams, and doesn't want to participate in activities that are really more like torture, or fraternize with the crazy denizens.

              They have only 8-9 episodes to tell the story, but it looks like they're wasting it on episodic bullshit.

              >Be careful not to judge it for what you want it to be.

              I'm in my right to judge the show and the creator that won't deliver what they promised.

              No shit?

              Again, like 12 hours passed, she's still reeling from the previous day's events. Her introduction to the circus was also especially bad because of Kaufmo's abstraction.

              >My homie, did you see any other Gummigoo moment besides when he gets snapped out of existence?
              What?

              The frick are you on about?
              Caine literally said in ep 1 that he keeps working on new shit to expand the circus and prepare more fun adventures for the cast, and that he controls everything in the digital world except for the humans. Except Bubble and Moon who are important NPCs are clearly out of control, so that's kind of bullshit, and there's obvious potential for self-aware NPCs. We see NPCs from the gloink quest, we see Caine in some restaurant full of NPCs that's probably not on the circus map. There's the glitch caused by Kaufmo's rampage, and maybe some minor comedic ones, not sure. The fricking animation studio that made the show is called Glitch and has another popular show about sentient AI. So yeah, all the crap in ep 2 was totally predictable.

              >Congratulations, you saw what I was trying to tell him
              Both posts are mine, and I still don't know WHY you're telling me this shit.

                Yes. Does this not reinforce my point? Do you not understand Pomni's mental state?

                >there's obvious potential for self-aware NPCs
                Which ep2 made full use of, Gummigoo was a good character
                >So yeah, all the crap in ep 2 was totally predictable
                You've moved the goalpost from 'This does not make sense' to 'This was predictable'. Not only are those contradictory complaints, they're moving the goalposts. Which tells me you are getting mad at me for the sake of it

                I do not understand the obsession of protracting a series until it devolves into a tragic husk devoid of all passion and creativity.
                I mean, I can understand it from the perspective of a showrunner - you want to milk the property for maximum profit - but for a fan of the show it makes absolutely no sense.

                It seems in Glitch's case that they really just like doing it for the sake of creating with merch sales from their official store just going into funding more cartoons. Like obviously they're fricking ecstatic that TADC has basically become the most viral internet animation ever but it's still business as usual. What the episodes to most likely come out faster? Buy a Jax figure to jar or a Gummigoo and Pomni plush so you can make them kith.

                If he does have an actual goal it isn't showing yet. For now he just wants to have as much fun possible with the adventures by doing everything wrong and hurting as many NPCs as he can, or his fellow performers.
                He obviously has a stadium-load of issues stemming from how he acts. Maybe he went through want Pomni did with Gummigoo? Maybe one of his older best performer friends abstracted?

            It's true! The vacuum from Rocko's Modern Life turned Goose gay. I'm not kidding. Goose had the show on DVD growing up and would always get this weird feeling in their stomach when the scene with the vacuum came on. Something about the way the vacuum's mouth was animated made it seem so inviting and welcoming. The scene also invoked a sense of domination as Rocko and Heffer were sucked inside the mouth and then to the back of the throat and are unable to resist it. Turns out Goose had a vore fetish but did not understand it until she discovered vore online when she was entering high school. Goose used to open up her parents' Henry Hoover and curl up inside pretending it ate her but their parents would ground her when she got stuck inside. The vacuum in the show is female so she would always imagine a female vacuum in her fantasies and somewhere along the line I think that turned Goose gay.

        LOL, I like the way you think.

        People not getting your thing, or liking it for the "wrong" reasons can actually feel worse than the thing being overtly disliked.
        At this point all you can do is either cope stages-of-grief style and accept your success or seethe and drive away everyone. Either way it'll be entertaining for us.

        And I get that, it's a big fear, but then we go back to who was supposed to be the target audience? If you don't make cartoons for yourself, why are you doing ALL of this? Why are there pop up stores? Why is there so much merch? They intended it to be big, and at the moment, it's not being taken down by christian fundies or republicans for being "woke." Take what you were handed to you.

      If I made a pilot for a show that suddenly starts a new wave of youtube content slop for kids, tons of bootleg merch, Birthday parties themed after it and let's not forget all the weird Pomni vs roblox and garter of banban plays they have in south america. I think I'd be weirded out too.
      It wasn't even a full show yet. She probably just wanted to make a cool show for animation gays not be the next pepa pig. Plus it's impossible to make something this popular without getting any kind of backlash or controversies even if they're made up or just made out of spite.

      Indie animators are so used at being failures 100% of the time that when one of them finally get an actual sucess it looks like too much. Truth is only 3 out of tens of thousands managed to make more money than the average wage slave after hundreds of hours of hard work on their project, they can't imagine being properly rewarded they want to flop.

      Meanwhile any mangaka is ready to get rich and famous because they see hundreds of mangakas like them having their anime seen by millions

He's been around the internet long enough to know whats going to happen so why even bother trying to fight it? I mean frick he made a figurine in a cum jar joke in one of the promotional videos.

    what did she meant by this.... i mean i think the show still unrolling the big stuff but like it seems a more episodic situational adventure and comedy stuff, with existencial discussion playing. but still too soon to say. I hope it doesn't become like a Rick and Morty but something sincere and like with a good characterization. Goose seems to like a lot to play with the idea of a game character breaking free from the programmed narrative and gaining autonomy. Lets wait and see how she does it, IF she does it in a satisfatory way. (so far episode 2 made me avoid TADC to like a big lot cuz its entertaining and seems like a passion driving project)

      I would imagine that Gangle probably has figurines of everyone the same way Jax has everyone's keys. Ragatha is just the one with a 'risque' figurine since everyone else didn't really have a body that could fit that. Except for Jax, but obviously he can't blackmail her with that, right?

    It's establishing the slice of life loop. Now we know that adventures can be in other worlds. In particular, worlds are inhabited by NPCs. NPCs are sapient but get their worldview shattered learning they are NPCs or when you try to learn too much about them. They cannot be brought back to the surface and will likely have a common theme of regarding Caine as God himself.
    Also, Pomni now realizes if she is to form attachments, it's best to limit it to other formerly-human "players". Her immediate danger of abstraction is suppressed, and everybody is now ready to move on to the next adventure.

            Jax is more of a gimmick character than Gangle, what with his tumblr sexyman status, penchant for ultraviolence and stealing keys.

              not even a fan of Jax (he can go rot in abstraction hell), but come on, Gangle only has 2 things going, her happy mask getting broken, and being a general pushover, there's really not too many you can do with her until she somehow starts changing, Jax meanwhile, being a mischievous bastard, is a way more interesting, there are a LOT of things he is willing and is able to do, by keeping himself constantly at odds with everyone else in the cast.

                Why would Caine program her with this trait? Does he even know what anime is?

                She's just a boring and underused character, but being a deranged maniac feels more gimmicky. Zooble is even more underused, but she's getting her own episode, so maybe Gangle will get there too. She also had her little bit of character "development" in this episode when she pissed off Jax by being slightly less submissive than usual.

                Yeah, I was thinking in the line of "Who feels more like a real person?" and imo it's Gangle, despite or because of being boring. I could see Jax being a villainous NPC who somehow managed to sneak into the circus and trick Caine into thinking that he's a performer, but Gangle is too much like a real depressed loser girl.

        Maybe Jax would turn out to be a pedophile or something. It would explain why he doesn't really pull anything on the others despite being immortal enough to do that.

      Many kids shows nowadays are fine with killing off and/or traumatizing their characters, we live in a world where the only thing that makes something "not for kids" is explicit content that isn't appropriate for kids to see.

                so why am I not relating too it? I was all over Undertales asscrack when I was 15 running various blogs on Tumor making and hosting various theories and fanart. this show kinda just sparks "heh, thats cute" before the twenty minut mark hits complete and Im faced with a black screen.

                I've been avoiding even looking into it because I'm a hipster and didn't want to find out what the zoomers were obsessed with. I saw some cute gummy alligator art/screenshots and decided to watch both episodes out of curiosity. My main gripe is that, while it's fun and everything, it has this extremely offputting commercial stink. Like it has looked at everything that has made things successful on social media over the past 10 years and distilled it into the perfect formula. Like if Undertale was made by well funded internet psychologists instead of a moron with lolrandumb humor that just incidentally resonates with a whole generation of people. Like the content is not meant to be enjoyed on its own. Like it's constructed to drive engagement, to make people talk about it, to make people make "content" based on it.

          That's just how Glitch works. They release a pilot for a new thing, and how much merch sold/views the pilot gets dictates if it'll become a full series. TADC absolutely blew up and the merch kept selling out so it'll continue till it ends at episode 9. You'd also be a lot more into it if you were already a fan of Goose's other animations, them getting the chance to make a big multi-episode cartoon with studio backing was a huge deal after making just shorts for years.

    Episode 2 was a marked improvement over the pilot, but as someone who used to talk to Goose, it's difficult shaking the feeling that they're too insecure and up their own ass to get weird or genuinely scary with it past the surface level merchandisable pseudo-corporate slop pushed out so far.

    Shit lacks soul in favor of cheap thrills.

      What about it "lacks soul" to you? That talk that Pomni had with Gummigoo in the dev room was really nice.

          I just find it so sad that Pomni tried to have a funeral for Gummigoo after Kaufmo's but no one else cared enough because they were too busy eating candy.

          I saw artwork once of Jax hanging out watching far away and accidentally gaslighted myself into thinking that was real and spent a lil bit trying to figure out where he was in the background

            So he really just didn't come to the funeral. What an ass.

          jax's pupil clips through his head here while switching emotions, nice fricking show glitch.
          I hope Kevin got fired for that blunder

            That's probably why he only looked sad for a moment, because he could feel himself glitching through... himself.

            Imagine how it would feel if your eye clipped through your head.

    okay if Jax really was an npc why wasn't his model below the map with the others?

      These models were for candy kingdom only? The room looked half empty, there are probably other rooms/storages elsewhere.

        Well he's not an NPC from the candy world at least. That was a candy world dev room.

        All good points.
