Take A Ride To The Seaside.
19 July 2019 | by Dawalk-1See all my reviews

This is yet again another T.V. cartoon series that I previously hadn't heard of and would come across later. This just happened to catch my eye while I was doing a Google search for something else through a picture of the titular character, also known as Princess Neri. Part of one weekend either earlier this month or late last month, I decided I'd check it out on my usual video-viewing site, Youtube. I saw the first couple episodes so far and I've been enjoying them. This is loosely based on the live-action T.V. series, Ocean Girl, which I also hadn't heard of nor seen, but I may plan to check that out too eventually. The New Adventures has since been added to my list of favorite animated T.V. series of the 2000s and what I consider to be amongst the best.

Among the foreign/Australian cartoons that were unknown to me, this is one of those that should've been imported for air in the U.S. and given more attention than some certain, other shows. It may be different from the live-action show, but I still rather this get airplay on American T.V. than several, particular shows that were given notice, basically anything that's been too mindless. I think the only Aussie cartoon that I knew of and grew up on watching was Blinky Bill. But of all those 'toons I've seen so far, I think this may be my most favorite. I can't say nor add anything about this program that hadn't been already been explained by the reviewer, so I'll just discuss the technicalities of it. When I mentioned too mindless shows, this isn't one of them. First, the writing is intellectually and intelligently written. Then, the characters, both the protagonists and the antagonists are great. The eponymous character herself, Princess Neri, is a fine heroine and has been one of my favorites since. The art and animation are decent aplenty, featuring a blend of traditional and CGI forms, when both used to be commonly used together simultaneously in the presentations, most notably in the backgrounds and the sceneries for the latter. The theme song is nice and easy on the ears with it's gentleness, as is the incidental music. I'm unfamiliar with the voice cast, but they all sound like they did alright in their roles. There are enough moments to keep things interesting.

One of those environmental series that may be my most favorite and I even think it's much better than Captain Planet. It should get the point of its message across. The planet, Oceana, is reminiscent of the lost city of Atlantis. One thing I can say concerning the premise is basically Princess Neri and, with the help of her friends, revolves around protecting the environment of her home world. Regrettably, this seems to be one of those series that got dropped too soon before receiving a more proper, satisfying conclusion. It deserved so much more than what it got and should've obtained it. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for something that is more meaningful and worthy of one's time. Because despite its difference from the first show, it's well worthy the watch.
