Thanks for adding the third Jungledyret Hugo film to the database - I'll have to rewatch my copy of it this coming week to make a proper review [as well as the other film in the series that I've forgotten to review... I think it's the second one?]!

Also, is it possible to add the two theatrical-release Winx Club movies - Winx Club - Il Segreto Del Regno Perduto [Secret of the Lost Kingdom] and Winx Club 3D: Magica Avventura [Magical Adventure] - to the list? I know the first one just got an English dub DVD release in the US this month [that I have] and the second one, I'm hearing that Nickelodeon actually plans to release the English dub in theaters in the Spring of 2013. Thanks!

Hello there. I'm Vulpecula. You may recognize me from the Animated Life forums a few years back.

I'm here to express myself by writing my own reviews on my favorite and least favorite animated works. I'm still a newbie to Keyframe but I'm still getting used to it. I won't spam nor anything, so don't mind me, here. I'm more of a nice and honest person then you think. And once I rank to Mad Scribbler I can make my own avatars (I'm an artist, by the way).

However, I have a little suggestion, unsure if you would like it or not.

How come you don't have a 'video games' category to your website? There are animated movies, TV shows, shorts, direct-to-video, animated specials, and heck, even web animation (including the poorly-made stuff from Newgrounds), but no video games. You may argue all you want on how they're 8-bit in the past and that not everyone here is a video gamer, but come on, video games are animated, too, so you shouldn't be forgetting about them, especially since video games became so known over the recent years and that the animation became more realistic. Believe it or not, I'm actually more of a gamer than an animation fan (so why am I doing you as you would ask? Is to review a variety of different stuff). Also, not all gamers use GameFAQs/GameSpot and IGN for their video game review needs, so it would be nice if you folks would add a video game section to this website at some point, starting with a few game pages to post reviews on (For example, I wanted to write a positive review on the Sonic the Hedghog 2006 game for the Playstation 3/X-Box 360 for a long time).

If not, then the following animated movies and TV shows should have a page here since I'm interested in writing reviews for them, but can't find them anywhere, if that's alright with you:
Captain N: The Game Master
The New Adventures of Super Mario Bros 3
Super Mario World (TV series)
F-Zero: GP Legend
Pokemon: Zoroark: Master of Illusions (my favorite Pokemon film) as well as other Pokemon films after Pokemon Heroes since they still don't have pages here, yet.

To put it simply because this is an animation site and it would take too long to catlooge video games

Sorry. I was only offering a nice little suggestion up to consideration, but I understand you, now.

Hi there, Vulpecula.

A bit of a can of worms, this.

It's been noted, mentioned, and suggested by - a few - others, that we should add videogames as a category; but it's not going to be happening I'm afraid. At least not anytime soon.

As we are primary an animation site, and profile animated films, television series, etc, where the animation is the primary reason for their existence, as an entertainment telling its story through a - passive - visual medium.

Videogames, by contrast, are an interactive medium that uses animation more as a tool to convey information to the player, due to visuals being the primary way we process data at anything near the pace that most types of games require.

Generally it's this contrast of media that prevents games from appearing on the site. And once you go of that way then people will start asking why live-action films that have animation - in terms of special effects - are also not on the site.

It's something that can get complicated fast. Not to mention it would have an effect on the site's focus.

Animated adaptations of videogames, or about videogames, Captain N, etc, are fine though, I add them to the list.

Thanks for understanding.

I should probably note that this is certainly not for a lack of interest in videogames on my part. I have been gaming for over a quarter-century, and hope to continue doing so, even as I watch the industry going stale, safe and samely, all the while suffering from acute Sequel-obsession.

Ironically, I'm all set to buy myself a Wii U tomorrow, and will be playing a sequel, even if it doesn't have a number in the title but does contain the word "New".

I haven't seen "Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland" on the list [then again, it's the last theatrical Care Bears movie...], so I'd like to suggest that. That and "Equestria Girls". [the latter is, I think, in the works, but just to be safe!]

Okay, one or two more suggestions for the site:

"Leafie, a hen into the wild" [Also called "Daisy: A hen into the wild" in its English release; originally it's a South Korean animated movie] and "My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Rainbow Rocks" [the sequel to the original "Equestria Girls" movie]

I can't wait to review these once they're on the site!

Hey there Juuchan17, nice to see you.

Okay, those have been added to the request list. I see what I can do about those two profiles.

Oh and I added your previous requests Care Bears in Wonderland and My Little Pony: Equestria Girls. Smile

Actually I'll probably post here in future when I add something from the request list. I know that the list gives links to uploaded profiles, but it'll be good to also add it to the forums as well.

@ethanimation21 - that special is already in the site's archives.
