Nevermind, found a player. Anyone want me to post a link?

I've been watching them on the Cartoon Network app, which posted the first 8 episodes, but would love to see your link as the CN ones play with ads and are DRM protected which is a tad annoying.

Episodes 9,10,11, and 12 are up! As usual with DHX, fight scenes are absolutely incredible and such a massive step up from anything that came before. Forbidden Spinjitzu looks really good (especially Garmadon’s) and I’m excited to see where this goes next.

Where? My player went bust and I only got up to episode 7.

Spoiler

The mirror reflections in 13 were some really, really cool character moments and I'm sure the one with Zane losing his humanity will especially come into play soon. 14 had one of the best fights in Ninjago with the ninja+Forbidden scroll versus Aspheera, and I always love seeing Zane come to the forefront (although I hope his disappearance doesn't mean we won't be seeing him for a while).

My best prediction for the back half of the season is that Zane becomes the Forsaken Emperor. We've seen how holding onto the scroll for a limited amount of time can change you -- now he has to carry it around for who knows how long. Super excited to see where this is all headed, although Aspheera's introduction and quick defeat felt a little rushed to me - so is she just locked away now? I was thinking the ninja were going to split up and have Zane, Nya, and Lloyd in the Never-Realm while Kai, Cole, and Jay held down the fort in Ninjago, but I guess that's not the case now that the Pyro Vipers aren't a threat. 

Anyone else find it a little weird how PIXAL didn't insist to go with them to save Zane? I get that she's a side character, but she has a really personal attachment to Zane and it's odd how she specifically was picked not to go.

I'm caught up now, and I loved episodes 8-15. It is weird that Pixal didn't go - also, what the heck happened to her Samurai X Mech? I remember seeing it in the garage, did it just vanish? 

Still, the Never-Realm is definitely shaping up as an interesting setting. I had expected Lloyd's big green Mech to be some kind of relic from the First Spinjitzu Master that he discovers at the end of his quest with Akita, so I was definitely surprised to see it in the garage. But if I had to guess, Zane's now the goal behind Lloyd's quest, and they're going to meet Akita in the Never-Realm. And it won't be a 1-on-1 between Lloyd and Akita like the sets suggested, but Akita will probably guide the whole team. Also, the Katana 4x4 and Cole's bike are almost definitely in the Land Bounty's garage, possibly the ShuriCopter too, and they're almost definitely going to repair the Green Mech. Gotta have product placement, right?

Also, the new Serpentine lore is confusing; I thought only Serpentine tribal leaders had tails and the rest had legs, except the Anacondrai? Aspheera and Char definitely aren't tribe leaders. And you can see in the flashback that Aspheera has the lines in her eyes that indicate she's a Hypnobrai, at least when not fired up. Char does look like he might be an Anacondrai, albeit a pretty pathetic one, since we never see what he looks like when not fired up. A friend of mine suggested this might be evolution at work?

Also, Aspheera and Char's states of being empowered by Kai's fire shall henceforth be referred to as them being fired up. That's official. Use it. You know you want to.

It was revealed at SDCC that Ninjago is getting some anime content.

I didn't expect Season 11 to be pretty good, given the new direction and tone. But it exceeded my expectations. The animation was very refreshing to see as well! 

Spoiler

 

Though at times, the show didn't take itself seriously, containing lots meta jokes and references, especially with a whole episode dedicated to a news broadcast with advertisement, they were enjoyable in the beginning, but I think they took it a little bit too far. Thankfully, the story steered itself back on track after Asphyra retrieved the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu. One thing I really loved in this season is the dynamic between Sensei Wu and the Ninjas. It feels very natural, and the part where the ninjas tied him up as they tried to leave for the Neverrealm is pretty tragic. 

Looking forward to more episodes. :thumbup:

Based on Tommy's comments it's not anime for the sake of anime. The narrative will dictate when/where the anime appears and doesn't appear.

Insert the potential video game-theme and the answer might be obvious.

I understand. It’ll be more like pseudo-anime, which is anime-influenced animation like Avatar: The Last Airbender for example.

It's from Season 11.

Oh so THAT is where the images I saw on Tumblr came from. I honestly thought they were fan arts.
I will admit I am still 50/50 on the whole 11 minute format thing but it has its ups and downs

I liked the season as a whole, but I felt that they shifted the dynamic between Wu and the Ninja way too far. Their relationship has never been this terrible! It just didn't fit with everything we've seen until now.

Surprised no one is talking about Episode 16 that showed up online:

 

I think this is leading to something really, really interesting...

I am almost 100% certain Zane is the Ice Emperor. It’s been hinted at since the start, with Zane’s weird visions revolving around getting struck by Aspheera’s staff and the Ice Emperor, and further set up in episode 14, when Wu asked Zane for the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu and there was a big moment of hesitation before he started to bring it over. We saw how angry and out of character Wu got when he held it for a few seconds, and we know it affects Nindroids as PIXAL said it “feels strange” while holding it. Zane’s greatest fear in the mirror was to lose his humanity, and I think that’s all foreshadowing for this. When the fire revealed Zane’s location, it showed the Ice Fortress — we are made to think he’s the “prisoner,” but I think that’s a red herring and in future episodes, the ninja will attempt to liberate the prisoner and find it’s not him. Aspheera’s spell could have sent Zane through both time and space, forcing him to hold the scroll for years on end and corrupting him over a great span of time. By that last scene, it also seems that the emperor is not entirely with it, and it’s almost like Vex is pulling all the strings here while the emperor sits and contemplates. What will really confirm this is if the ninja discover in the next few episodes that the reason the mech’s signal is very faint is because it’s been buried under a ton of snow and ice, and will have appeared to have aged a great deal. I really, really hope this is the case, as the show’s never really tried anything like this ever before, and am so excited to see how this chapter plays out.

Or just the fact time works differently in different realms.
