I woke up early to – gasp – turn on the TV this morning, because Ōban Star-Racers was premiering on Jetix (Toon Disney, ABC Family.)
Despite what Matt says about the series, I found it pretty charming and quite well-produced. The character designs especially stood out to me, and they all seemed very likeable. Yes, the voice acting could be better and the plot is very run-of-the-mill, but I just might continue watching it since I’ve become somewhat of a fan over the years.
For anyone else who’s interested, I believe it plays on Saturday at 10:30AM and Monday at 8:00AM/PM on ABC Family.
