Title: Miraculous Ladybug....

...Anyone watch this? I do. The newest episodes are on YouTube. It's best described to me as a cross between Sailor Moon, Archie, and Spider Man...

I've been watching it since the first volume of Season 1 came out on DVD, but there was a huge gap between seasons 1 & 2, and when I went back to YouTube a few months ago, it was hard to find the English dubs of the second season episodes, so I only saw a couple of them. It's probably better covered now that I got too busy to keep up with it and lost track of the new episodes. I keep hoping that they'll just put Season 2 episodes out on DVD (NickTV covered the first season broadcasts, and Shout! Factory the DVDs). So far I haven't heard anything about broadcast rights or DVD rights in the North American market.

Marinette is something else. There's a definite Spider-Man influence, along with that of Japanese tokusatsu/henshin hero/magical girl shows, and a few other things as well, as the creators were aiming for something accessible to a global market.

YouTube has them all, and in the case they somehow are blocked, Watch Cartoons Online has them. There are only two left for the season, and they're supposed to be even better than the "Queen's Battle" trilogy, "Catalyst", and "Mayura". It really frustrated me that they screwed with the release dates throughout this year...

Actually, I'd be just as happy to watch the original French episode dubs as long as they were subtitled en Anglais. Not familiar with any of the episodes you cite, since I only managed to see (IIRC) the first two episodes of Season 2, then gave up for a while after the frustration of not being able to reliably find an English language (or even French, subbed) upload of the current episode from one release to the next. Plus you know, all the little tricks they have to do to keep the episode from being removed... mirror-reversed, picture-in-picture, compressed speed, etc.  I don't want to spoil the episode for myself by having to see it that way. For that matter, I don't think I've ever been to Watch Cartoons Online, so I'll check into that.

There have always been issues with episode production order vs. release date order, and Miraculous compounds that issue more than is probably necessary by having different countries (France, Korea, England, Japan, Canada) broadcast the shows in different order. Wikipedia has the episode list in producer Zagtoon's official chronological sequence, as well as notes on what order the episodes aired in different global markets, if you're wondering.
