A few notes from my viewings of Wakfu: The show just showed up on Netflix. It is French production, but the English dubbing is very good. Nice blending of American and Japanese animation styles. Definitively a kids show, but with adult jokes. The end credit animations can be adorable. Mostly strong female characters with caveats. Episodes are short, less then 30 minutes. Fan fare has it in their TV list now.
