Top 10 Reasons Why Winx Club Should End After Season 8

Let's face it, this show has gone on for FAR too long. Winx Club fans and haters welcome.
The Top Ten
1 Bloom is getting more and more annoying

I have to agree with this one. The show had literally only focused on Bloom and not enough on the other girls. It's Bloom this, Bloom that, Bloom blah blah blah! She's honestly getting really bratty and annoying, and the fact that she cries over the stupidest things is frustrating.

For example, she cried over her boyfriend not answering the phone, but seriously? Your boyfriend's not going to answer the phone every time because he may be busy or something. 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 thing! But in my opinion, she wouldn't be a very good leader, so it should've been Flora.

2 They look like they are fifteen in season 8

Seeing the new art style made me feel like I don't want to watch Winx Club because it looks childish and too much like a kiddish show. The first three seasons were great, as well as the fourth season. The fifth and sixth seasons are alright. The art styles are pretty, but some of the writing can be annoying as Bloom starts to become a Mary Sue starting around season 4. Season 7 is pretty, but it can be boring.

But season 8??? The art style is not even worth it in my taste. Now they look like young dolls or the Winx version of Bratz Kids. The boys are even worse, looking like young boys before they entered puberty. It looked terrible. I miss the old Winx. I used to watch Winx a lot as a kid. The original Italian art style was better and a classic! We don't need a new season.

3 Season 7 was the worst season

Yeah, season 7 was awful. 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 at the start. I still love her in general, though.

They have already run out of ideas. The creators probably could have still saved the show if they ended it earlier, but nope, they continued it for the sake of money and making dolls. The songs are getting more horrible.

4 It’s losing its originality and creativity

It's a shame because the third season was supposed to be the last season of the show. Then, a fan base developed, and popularity and money ruined the Winx. Nothing is the same without Mr. Straffi. He should come back to his creation and fix it, because the new season is terrible!

Edit: The reboot will be in Straffi's full control. We'll see if it's good or not.

Seasons 1-3 made the show very enjoyable and attracted a wide age range from kids to, probably more so, 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 that would've worked if it were a completely different show, but in this context, it 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?

Bloom used to be simple-minded in the earlier seasons, and Musa was actually a tomboy and badass sometimes! Now they all have 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. Couldn't they have had multiple seasons per year? This was my favorite show, and it's sad to see how much it's derailed.

5 The boys look like 5 in season 8

The specialists have the worst designs I've ever seen, even worse than the Winx. They look so young, I'm not used to it. Whoever did the designs, they don't look the same anymore. They look like young boys from elementary school before they enter puberty. The specialists were all handsome and good-looking before, even if they had design changes over the years before season 8.

Taking Sky as an example, he looked like the 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 his age. Then he went and had his haircut, and I wasn't really into it, but his character overall didn't change much. But in season 8? It's disgusting how he looks. It's for the worse. He looks like he hasn't even reached puberty yet, despite looking like he partied through his college years in season 1.

6 The Trix shouldn't keep coming back

They went from being simple, yet effectively-written villains who were psychopathic and murderous (I'm honestly not exaggerating - just because something's not outright stated doesn't mean it's not there) to being soulless, evil husks that act like mean teenage girls who 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 is like this, though.

7 It has too many seasons

A show can be good for as many seasons as 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 well. After Stephen Hillenburg returned after the second movie, the show got better.

This shows that if a good writer who has been creative and skilled for ages keeps on making good shows, the show stays good. If he retires and is replaced by a poor writer, then the show goes downhill. This is what also happened with Winx Club. Idiots took over, and even some of the good writers weren't very skilled to begin with.

8 The Winx (or only Bloom) will probably get some godlike transformation

I think all of the Winx Club fairies will get 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.

9 There is no reason for the show to continue

Even Mr. Straffi said that the series is inferior after season 3. That means that the first three seasons are the Golden Age of the Winx. It shouldn't have continued past at least the 4th to 6th seasons. The quality derailed over time. It's a shame.

Too long but still please read. I believe this way too! The same subplots are happening all the time, and there is nothing new. Even the Winx members 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 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 to create the need for another transformation.

Riven and Musa are always fighting, and why? I know Riven and Musa can be tough sometimes, 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 many more 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 plotline.

10 The fandom feels like they haven’t grown up with the Winx since they get “younger” every new season

In the first 4 seasons, they all look teenage to almost adult, but giving season 8 a glance, 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 nosedive since I was a kid, and I grew up with art being something that people put effort into - making it work aesthetically 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 TV now. The only reason I would watch the new Winx seasons is to see what happens with Musa and Riven... and believe me, it's starting to become less of a reason and more of an excuse. I'll probably just watch YouTube clips to satisfy my curiosity at this point.

The Contenders
11 The quality has dropped

So true! I loved the plot overall. As a child, I was really into the story and loved how Bloom was finally able to 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 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 seasons 5 and 6 because they don't seem as if they were kids, unlike seasons 7 and 8.

12 The transformation sequences are becoming too short

I won't disagree, but I am a big fan of the show (been watching it since it came out).

13 The cartoons look more and more doll like as they continue

I really love the old art style from season 1 until season 4. You can see some lines that are not perfectly drawn (some are thicker than 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 resembled the original art style. 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 seasons 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 art style is really stopping me.

14 The transformations are getting worse

The first three 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.

15 Whitewashing Aisha

This is just utterly disgusting. Not only did they whitewash Flora, but in Fate, they replaced her with someone named Terra. Aisha and Flora should've just kept their beautiful dark skin colors. Whatever happened to Aisha's beautiful black skin and 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!

16 If the eighth season is bad it could lower the reputation of the show

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 airs, I'll be a great-grandmother! Worse, I'll probably drop dead from the bad storyline.

17 They changed the art style in Season 8

As a viewer of Winx Club seasons 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. This is mainly because the original characters, who looked older, look so much younger in season 8, and it does not give credit to their growth.

18 They are completely ignoring continuity and are dumbing down the characters and storylines to the point of unbearable garbage

I watched Winx when I was a kid, and my niece watches it now and 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.

19 They get weaker every season

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 strengths. 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.

20 Fan favorites are either being removed, or getting worse to be "appropriate to younger children"

There is no point in trying to appropriate to younger children if the previous seasons were already very successful at appealing to younger children and older children. Why would you change the art style in season 8 just to be met with a smaller target audience, which would lead to fewer views?

Why did they remove such honorable characters like Roxy, Daphne, or Mirta? Also, I won't forgive the producers for wasting Valtor, Knut, and even some transformations.

21 They don’t even have real conversations anymore, it’s just random comments and group laughter in response
22 Eventually the creators will run out of ideas

I think it should keep going. Some of the transformation outfits were too long at the back or had too many layers that made them look like cakes. 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 where all the fairies need to be involved too. It constantly reminds the audience of the importance of good characteristics, e.g., never giving up, believing in yourself, etc., that helps kids and adults.

23 Too childish

Unlike some shows that actually put effort into their production, Winx Club has become unappealing to everyone. Nothing makes sense anymore. I'm pretty sure the only fans left are little girls.

24 Although they are getting new powers every half a season, the strength of the powers do not get better

I find that so annoying. They had Butterflix (one of the worst ones, and they even danced to it) but still needed Tynix. 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.

25 The main characters were Mary Sues

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.
