Top 10 Reasons Why Winx Club Should End After Season 8Let's face it, this show has gone on for FAR too long. Winx Club fans and haters welcome.
I have to agree with this one. The show had literally only focused and not enough on the other girls. It's Bloom this, Bloom that, Bloom bla bla bla! She's honestly getting really bratty and annoying and the fact that she cries over the stupidest things. For example, she cried over her boyfriend not answering the phone but seriously? Your boyfriend's not gonna answer the phone every time because he's maybe busy or something. And honestly, Flora should've been the leader from the start because she's way more likable than Bloom. Or Stella because she's the one who started the WHOLE DAMN thing! But in my opinion, she wouldn't be a very good leader so it should've been Flora.
Bloom is becoming increasingly self-centered with each passing season. Has anyone else noticed a consistent pattern of Bloom stealing the limelight from the diverse characters? She never takes the spotlight away from Stella or Tecna.
In Season 5, Tritannus was Aisha's cousin and posed a threat to her family and planet. If anyone deserved the opportunity to defeat Tritannus on their own or fight him alongside Nereus, it should have been Aisha. However, the writers decided to have him capture Aisha and give Bloom more attention that she doesn't deserve or need. Moreover, it would have made more sense for Icy to suggest capturing Bloom and using her Sirenix Powers and Dragon Flame to charge up the Emperor's Throne, considering Bloom is the Winx she despises the most. But no, they chose to have her suggest capturing Aisha, thus reinforcing Bloom as the classic Mary Sue once again.
Another example is the Winx Club Band. Musa is the Fairy of Music, yet they selected Bloom, of all people, as the Lead Singer. I understand the argument that she should be the lead singer because she's the leader, but seriously? Musa barely gets any time in the spotlight as it is. This would have been a perfect opportunity to shine a light on her, but no, the writers gave it to Bloom instead.
Lastly, let's talk about Flora. When Diana allied with the Fairies of Vengeance, Flora should have been the one to assist her, especially since Diana shared a Hispanic-Latina background with Flora, and Flora's Sophix power was Second Nature. It would have made more sense for them to be paired together, considering Diana was the Warrior Fairy of Nature. But once again, Bloom was the main character to lend her aid. Where's Flora's moment to shine? Is it only limited to Season 3 when she saves her sister Miele and earns her Enchantix powers? Do the writers believe they can give the diverse cast of the Winx Club the spotlight for a single episode and then give Bloom the rest of the... more
The one thing I hate about every seasons of Winx club is season 8... The art style is for kids, it's not even fit for teenagers to watch that kind of art. I love the previous one even though the specialist weren't that handsome enough but seriously? Season 8 is way more into kids arts.. they don't obviously becomes mature (looks like dolls to me).. I wanna know why they change the good animation into a different one, it will be more better if they still stick with the previous animation like season 1-3... I honestly enjoyed watching this but when it comes to season 7 the plot becomes boring.. I wanted to watch season 8 but the art style prevented me to do so... I honestly don't like the 3D style especially when they went to other realms the animation becomes different. Hopefully they will change the artystyle into more like an anime one..
I hate that. Instead of making them mature and all grown up and responsible, now they ar like back in elementary scholl. I honestly don't know who is worse, girls or guys..I get that a lot of years have past since season 1, and there are new artist and stuff, but seriously, why?
I think it would be for the best for them and us not to upload season 8 at all...
Season 7 was great to me, but not you! The Winx got stronger and stronger! And the Trix got weaker and weaker! You might think season 7 was the worst season ever, The Winx got fairy animals, which is awesome! please respect my opinion on Winx Club season 7.
Yeah, season 7 was awful. And in baby Winx Roxy was an idiot. Putting the seals back in the wild after living in a sanctuary for god knows how many years basically turns them into polar bear food
Right and they turned Stella into a stereotypical dumb blonde. That's not who she was in the start. I still love her in general though.
Somebody should take Mr Straffi aside and explain to him that nobody can do a good job if they work on two major cartoon shows at the same time. He has to come back to his creation, bring in new story editors, and produce a separate spinoff series if he really wants to bring in younger viewers. Fans of Seasons 1-7 want a reset Season 8 in the familiar style, without the Trix. If he can't do that, the show should close.
Seasons 1-3 made the show very enjoyable and have a wide age range from kids to probably moreso, teens. After season 3, they started dumbing it down little by little until it seemed like a dumb kids show and the characters started losing their personalities. They also changed the art style a little bit in season 4 and gave it less of an Italian anime look. They made Bloom way too overrated and a bit more annoying, causing the fandom to hate her. Season 7 was absolutely horrific. They completely got rid of the fantastic Italian art style and replaced it with a different look which would've worked if it were a completely different show, but in the circumstances ruined Winx further. I hated the new voices for the Winx, besides Tecna's. They made Bloom completely different and annoying. They made Stella dumber and the others were worse too. Tishara was a weird villain and the fairy animals idea was rubbish. Was that the best they could do? Also, Bloom used to be simple minded in the earlier seasons and Musa was actually a tomboy and badass sometimes! Now they are all similar, dumber, personalities. Also, the Winx were supposed to be Alfea students for 5 years, but the show rushed through it too fast and we only saw 3 or 4 years. Also, couldn't they have multiple seasons per year? This was my favorite show and it's sad to see how much it's derailed.
Taking Sky as an example, he looked like a hunky, manly prince that he was in the first season, nice long hair, toned body in his suit and that jawline really made him look the age he was, but then he went and had his haircut and I wasn't really into it, but his character overall didn't change much, but season 8? It's disgusting how he looks for the worse, he looks like he hasn't even reached puberty yet, despite looking like he partied through the entirety of his college years in season 1.
This, of course, is truly infuriating because it looks like everyone has aged backwards, and, it was a sudden change. There was absolutely no point in changing the looks in season 8 when all the looks from season 1-7 were the same.
It's the worst design change I have seen in my life. I don't know who hired this man/women to do this. But they should have just kept with a design that looks close to the original.
They went from being simple, yet very effectively-written villains that were psychopathic, murderous (I'm honestly not exaggerating, just because something's not outright stated doesn't mean it's not there) and terrifying with the way they concealed the threat they posed to the whole world by acting like just regular high school bullies, to being souless, evil husks that act like mean teenage girls that never realize how badly they're messing up. In short, they were actually pretty effective, passable-or-better villains but became more and more incompetent and laughable as time went on
Basically every returning character from the first seasons are like this though
It would be nice to have new villains because us viewers are continuously deceived, thinking that the Trix are defeated, only for them to return. Additionally, if you insist on letting the Trix return, at least give the audience a valid explanation on HOW they returned or escaped. For example, how did the Trix suddenly return in season 7 when they were 'trapped forever' in the Legendarium in season 6?
A show can be good for as many seasons at it wants as long as the good writers are creative and don't get replaced with bad writers.
It doesn't turn bad unless idiots take over good writers.
That's what happened with SpongeBob, when Stephen Hillenburg originally retired after 2004, Zeus Cervas and Alexander Reed and other idiots ruined the show because they're bad uncreative writers who can't write good.
After Stephen Hillenburg returned after the 2nd movie, the show got better.
This shows you that if a good writer who has been creative and skilled for ages keeps on making good shows, the show stays good, and if he retires and is replaced by a poor writer, then the show goes downhill.
Which is what also happened with Winx Club, idiots took over and even some of the good writers weren't very skilled to begin with.
Like I've said since the beginning they should reboot the entire show, reconstruct the universe and characters and tighten up the story. Winx Club was always a good show but it can always improve. Don't make new characters but use the ones you have and start from scratch and then after a while you can age them more.
I think all of the Winx Club fairies will get a godlike transformations because the Winx Club fairies have such beautiful transformations.
I think they should look pretty godlike if all of them except bloom got it
I totally agree
The first 4 seasons they all look teenage to almost adult, but giving season 8 a glance and I was floored with how much changed. SERIOUSLY? What happened to the style of the first season!? What was wrong with it?! They look like... dolls of 5 years in age, not even a show I would consider watching! I've never watched cartoons like Bratz or whatever else has come out in the last 10 years. The art style has taken a nose dive since I was a kid and I grew up with art being something that people put effort into - making it work astheticly correct and beautifully drawn. Now it's all about doll-like characters and 3D animation, or live action in some cases (like Disney).
For me, art is just as important as the storyline and if one of the two, or both, is lacking, it isn't worth my time. I'd rather watch the shows I grew up with than watch the crap that's on T.V. now. The only reason why I would watch the new winx seasons is to see what happens with Musa and Riven... and believe me, it's starting to become a reason that is surely becoming less of a reason and more of an excuse... Will probably just watch youtube clips to satisfy my curiousty at this point though.
So true! I loved the plot overall. As a child, I was really into the story and loved how Bloom was able to finally get some answers about her past. I love how the Winx were able to become more mature as the seasons progressed, and seeing that really makes me happy.
Season 1 was nice, and I can see their impulsiveness and how they argue over simple things, BUT I GET IT BECAUSE THEY WERE YOUNG. Season 2 was great because you can see their friendship getting stronger, and their relationships with their boyfriends are growing more.
There are many more seasons, but I'm too lazy to type them all down. However, season 5 and the newer ones had a significant drop in quality. I can still watch season 5 and 6 because they don't seem as if they were kids, unlike season 7 and 8.
Personally season 1 was a blast for all viewers especially kids. Now that generation of kids have grown older and only watch Winx club because they would watch it when they were younger. It has become very childish and the specialists look like a complete joke in season 8. Their speech also gets more cringier by the seasons. Plus Bloom's story IS OVER! There's not really any point for continuing it. The transformations are really childish and cringey.
Too long but still please read. I believe this way too! Same subplots are happening all the time and their is nothing new again. Even the winx members itself realize it, as Stella mentioned in season 4 after hearing of the black gift (Nickelodeon version) "Just the usual stuff."
Here are some reasons I have:
Sky and Bloom are getting engaged again and again yet they aren't even getting married. Daphne and Thoren even got married first, so why can't they hold a wedding for Sky and Bloom?
Icy has another sister and Darcy and Stormy aren't her real sisters? But in the first season, it was clearly stated there that they descended from the Ancestral Witches who destroyed Domino.
They are getting immature and trying to make them look weaker, except Bloom. I love Bloom so much but they've already achieved so much. Being afraid and anxious to battle an enemy is okay, but I feel like they make them look weaker just so you can make them feel the need for another transformation.
Riven and Musa are always fighting and why? I know Riven and Musa can be so tough at some times but why do you have to make them fight so many times? In season 4, Riven told Musa that he understands it already and their big break there made them mature.
There are so much more other things, but please just end Winx Club. I hate to say this, but please do. Create a new show for a new generation to love, just like how we loved Winx Club. Please put an end to their story instead of leaving us with a childish plot line.
Not really but in the latest 3 transformations, if you put all the scenes where they transform, they're slow, but fast. the scenes are very slow, but they usually cut them off. the lastest transformations are just fashion shows where they pose and magical accessories appear on them and they flaunt them off. that's it.
I won't disagree but I am a big fan of the show (been watching it since it came out)
I really love the old artstyle in season 1 until season 4. You can see some lines that are not perfectly drawn (there are some that are thicker than the others) but there is just something about it that I love. There are some scenes where the anatomy isn't right too in the first four seasons. When season 5 came, I noticed that they improved but it still resembles the Artstyle. Their eyes got bigger. I don't really mind the changes in hair but I hate how they were whitewashing Flora and Aisha. Overall, I could take season 5 and 6. Season 8 is a different topic because I just can't watch it anymore. I want to because I love winx club so much but the new artstyle is really stopping me.
True, I miss season 1-2 looks. After that the animation just kept getting more doll like and started to look awful. You can tell the start in changes in season 3 but it really doesn't get bad until season 5.
They used to resemble teenagers. But by season 4, they start acting cheesier and more made for kids each season after (including season 4). Also, the Wizards of the Black Circle were soooooo OP that it doesn't make sense how the winx beat them!
First 3 seasons are great. I miss their 4kids show. Enchantix is the best transformation. I think Believix is decent, Magic Winx/Charmix is good, but the other transformations are worse than the older ones.
The Winx are losing their uniqueness and personalities.
This is just utterly disgusting. Not only did they whitewash Flora also but in fate they replaced her with some person named Terra. Aisha and Flora should've just kept their beautiful dark skin colors. Whatever happened to Aisha's beautiful black skin and whatever happened to Flora's beautiful tan skin? I can't believe Iginio Straffi did this to Aisha and Flora, my two favorite Winx Club fairies. Also, in S1 Ep12, there's literally a racist scene but 4Kids saved it from being complete racist trash. I usually don't really like the 4kids dub but thank you!
Not to mention that if they want people to watch it how the hell can they do that when they made Aisha, the only black character on the winx team that's a recurring character whitewashed?! If anything that has made fans angry including me who have been a fan of Aisha (formerly Layla what is up with the name change anyway? )
The eighth season does not give the Winx Club series the credit it deserves. instead, season 8 proves to be underwhelming and quite a disappointment.
By the time the 8th season decides to air I'll be a great grandmother! worse is I'll probably drop dead from the bad storyline.
As a viewer of the previous Winx Club season 1-7, I strongly believe that the new art style in season 8 disrupts the flow of Winx Club in general and ruins the overall storyline - mainly because the original characters (who looked older), look so much younger in season 8 and does not give credit to their growth.
I watched winx when I was a kid, my niece watches it now and she loves it but all I keep thinking about is how stupid the show is. (I mean it wasn't perfect in the beginning but at least it had a thought out arc (for the most part) and well built characters) Now, everything seems so pathetic and stupid, especially the characters and story and that just makes me sad
The Winx get new transformations, but they are all the worst. Of course, for the first three seasons, the Winx grow in their powers and when they reach Enchantix, they are true fairies with great power. But after that, it's all bull. They get weak and can't beat a new enemy easily like they should, their competition isn't strong at all, and their fairy forms are just dumb and give them no power.
Personally, I just like Magic Winx the most because that's when the Winx were figuring out who they are, their own weaknesses, and strength. And they ended up all being super powerful in their own way. But in later seasons, transformations just ruined that. It's like teaching a kid that to be strong, you have to fit the label. In the Winx world, to help beat an underwater foe, they had to fit the label and be Sirenix fairies. To me, it was unnecessary! In season 3, they did an underwater mission just fine! So there was no need for these transformations; they are just labels.
There is no point in trying to 'appropriate to younger children' if the previous seasons were already very successfully at appealing to younger children AND older children. Why would you exchange a different art style in season 8 just to be met with a smaller target audience which would lead to less views?
Why they removes such a honorable characters like Roxy, Daphne or Mirta? Also I won't forgive producers that they wasted Valtor, Knut, even some transformations.
Yeah that is true
I think it should keep going. Some of the transformation outfits were too long at the back or had too many layers that made it look like a cake. I can see a repetitive pattern but I think it should continue throughout generations. Hopefully at some point they get married and have kids and the series could continue and split up for different age groups e.g. adult winx and another version with their kids growing up too. They could have a combined version for some episodes were all the fairies need to be involved too. It constantly reminds audience the importance of good characteristics e.g. never giving up, believing in yourself etc that helps kids and adults.
They ran out of ideas at S4. It's obvious because from S5 they have crap villains (the main villain of S5 is basically Captain Pollution of Captain Planet in fish form), retcon major plot points, bring back/remove major characters and make the characters act like stupid flanderized versions of themselves. Should have ended a long tine ago, but Nickelodeon can't bear to let theie cash cow franchise die.
Unlike some shows that actually put effort into their shows, some shows appeal to everyone. Nothing makes sense anymore. I'm pretty sure the only fans left are the little girls.
I find that so annoying. Like they had butterflix (one if the worst ones and they also even dance to it) but needed tynix still. It looks like new transformations are so pointless because attacking villains just gets harder for them. They do not seem stronger
There needs to be a clearer indication that the Winx have become stronger with each new transformation.
Mostly Bloom. Flora is great but a bit overrated, Stella and Aisha are the most well balanced, and the others are just bland.
Even worse than Bella Swan, Ana Steele, the Bratz girls and Barbie.
