We don't have nothing at all about this. That's a straight out lie. If that was actually true, everything on the page would be completely made up. It's not.
We do not have:
- The "pilot", which even our sourced interview points out was not a "pilot" but a "presentation piece".
- The actual show.
What we have and what the article even states we have is:
- A grainy music video filmed by a convention goer that provides no context for the footage except it was worked on by a guy named Allen Hastings who the sourced interview claims didn't actually work on it.
- A single interview with someone who worked on it done years after the fact talking about something he worked on where he couldn't even remember all of the character's names.
So yea, this is a trope page for a show that doesn't exist and I am not lying by pointing this out. It is, at best, a pitch. We do not make pages for media that didn't even get as far as finishing their pilots. Someone brought up advertising, but all of our advertising pages are based on ads that actually aired in their entirety and thus do not involve any speculative troping. Someone brought up fanfic, but as I said above, this is the equivalent of making a trope page for a fanfic that hasn't been written but the author wrote a list of ideas of what she plans
to do. This is the equivalent of making a trope page for concept art.
By the way, the interview being linked as a source is not the actual interview and I noticed the blog post actually invented things that were not actually covered in Anime Fringe
. So on top of the other problems with this trope page, one of the "sources" of the non-existant show contains tropes that don't actually happen in the tiny little piece of an incomplete work that we have. Here's that actual Interview with Rocky Solotoff
by Adam Arnold (yea, that one
) and the original article about the trailer
. The blog the current article links to made up a comment about the characters being different "nationalities", when the interview clearly stated "ethnicities".
As for the tropes on the page?
Expository Theme Tune
is stated in the sourced interview to not be the theme song, just part of the music video.
80sHair even admits that it's not 80s hair.
tries to label the ethnicities of the characters, but we don't actually know any of the characters identities aside from Sailor Moon because the song explicitly calls identifies her. The interview linked in the piece admits that some of the girls may have had their names changed.
admits they have no idea how the girl in the wheelchair would have played out aside from lasers on the magic wheelchair.
, even the sourced interview says that he thought
the boards might
have been toy concepts.
is completely wrong, as noted above, so that shouldn't be on the page.
is incorrect - Solotoff pointed out he wasn't happy with the animation, but explicitly stated it's because it wasn't finished animation. They would have done a different style had their been a commissioned series.
The remaining tropes are accurate to what little bit of stuff we can speculate on, but that's just it - we're still guessing at things. The Space Sailing
trope is a guess about why they might
have chosen to have the characters literally sailing in space.
And amazingly, the only trope this whole non-show needs to fall under, What Could Have Been
