''Wakfu'' is a 2008 French cartoon by [[Creator/{{Ankama}} Ankama Animation]] set within the world of an MMORPG of the same name, which is set 1,000 years after the production company's other MMO, ''VideoGame/{{Dofus}}''. The whole show is completely kid-friendly, since the target audience is [[AnimationAgeGhetto 8-10 years old]], but tons of jokes are aimed [[ParentalBonus directly at older audiences]] and [[PeripheryDemographic fans of the game]], is full of {{Fanservice}}, and the plot itself [[CerebusSyndrome matures]] [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids enormously]].

From a technical point of view, ''Wakfu'' is drawn with vectors using the UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash program, and follows a lot of [[{{Animesque}} anime clichés]], though the final work is quite unique (and tends to be pretty awesome). It is also notable that the series is animated almost entirely in France, which is rare considering the costs of such a production. Ankama's sister company in Japan is responsible for the animation not done by Ankama proper, the bonus episode "Noximilien" was animated by Creator/{{Madhouse}}, and a 52-minute feature on Ogrest was made in collaboration with Creator/StudioGhibli.[[note]]with assistance from Madhouse[[/note]]

* [[ShoutOut/{{Wakfu}} Shout-Outs]]


''Wakfu'' is considered a [[SeriesFranchise "cross-media"]], consisting of the animation, the [=MMOG=], and a trading card game. However, the animation has generated four other [[SpinOff Spin-Offs]] by itself: a series of shorts called ''Mini-Wakfu'', which supplies some useful [[AllThereInTheManual background information]] on the two games (''VideoGame/{{Dofus}}'' and ''Wakfu''); a browser-based MMORPG, ''Wakfu: The Guardians'', which uses the same engine as ''VideoGame/{{Dofus}}'' and allows the player to "replay" the episodes of the series through small dungeons, with characters similar in appearance and powers to [[TheHero Yugo]]; a series of graphic novels titled ''Wakfu Heroes''; and a mix between a BeatEmUp and ShootEmUp called ''VideoGame/IslandsOfWakfu'' for the UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade that acts as a {{Prequel}} for the series. Ankama has released an English trailer and a [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1836563008/wakfu-the-animated-series?ref=live Kickstarter for a home video release (and English dub) in North America]] -- that raised over ''six times'' the required amount. As of January 19, 2015 both seasons of the English dub are available on Netflix. Netflix also co-produced the show's third season alongside France 4. The series currently consists of 65-episodes over the course of three seasons. The first season ended on June 5th, 2010, and included a bonus 27th episode (not included in the slated 52) exploring Nox's past. Season two began airing February of 2011, and a 3 part OVA was released in 2014. A third season premiered on France 4 on September 2nd, 2017, with the finale airing September 17th, 2017. It's Creator/{{Netflix}} premiere happened on October in France, and was released for the rest of the world on April 6th, 2018.
