Chibi Color Kids for the win.
Originally a spirited remake of the children's TV show Rainbow Brite
(also known as Fastpuck
) took the base concepts
of a decent show
and turned them into an entirely new creation. Instead of Rainbow Land, this story takes place in a world called Eternity- and instead of children, the Color Kids
are (mostly) teenagers with very distinct
backstories, personalities, relationships, and nationalities.
Did I mention that, aside from the goddesses
that created Eternity, basically the entire cast
The cast of characters also includes the dark god Flins
(who happens to be much more evil and
sadistic than Murky Dismal ever thought of being), and of course this story's version of Rainbow Brite- Rein Bo
), though he tends to be less popular than several of the Color Kids.
There are also versions of Stormy, Moonglow, and Tickled Pink. Starlite and the other horses are apparently going to make an appearance, though they will be focused on less than the Color Kids. This is definitely
not your older sister's Rainbow Brite.
While the story itself has only thus far been made into a conceptual comic, Word of God
says that Tanuki Tanuki
will one day get around to doing the entire thing. In the meantime, there is a ton of art
in her gallery to convey the gist of the characters and storyline.
This comic provides examples of:
Characters in this story provide examples of:
- Always Camp: Hoang also happens to be a bit transgender, though he really only cares for the makeup.
- Anguished Declaration of Love: Most of the boys get a chance for one! The most important declarations are between Sacha and Cobar and Stormy and Bo.
- Battle Couple: Most of the characters. Seriously.
- The Charmer: Brodie fits this bill, hands down. Helps that he's totally Irish (black Irish!). Also a bit of a Boisterous Bruiser
- Face-Heel Turn: Cobar, quite The Lancer, wanted to be the perfect hero. Also, GDAY' MATE.
- Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Aeryn, and he's also a Villainous Crossdresser!
- The Jail Bait Wait: Go Zahur, go Stormy, stay strong!!
- Keet: HADRIAN KEET KEET KEET I AM 12 AND WHAT IS THIS
- Loads and Loads of Characters: The MAIN cast exceeds 10. The minor cast could go on forever....
- Megane: Jung. He's also the Team Mom and Nice Guy
- Tall, Dark and Handsome: Sacha, Brodie, Stormy... but actually, only Zahur fills ALL the criteria for TD&H.
- Troubled, but Cute: Sacha and Stormy, for the most part.
