Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m reviewing the first episode of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir season two!
I know what you are probably thinking right now. You are probably thinking one: Grace it’s not Wednesdays and I thought we were done with double posts a week what the hell? Well I’ve been having some trouble with this blog like I have so many post ideas but when I only update once they won’t be out for a long time and I don’t want that to be like that all the time. Like if I kept doing that then this would out in February and we would be done talking about season two, we would be losing our shit about season three and what comes next. So yeah I’m not doing this every week, I’m only doing it if I want something out soon whether then later and it will mostly only be reviews. You probably have another question which is why are you talking about Miraculous I thought we were done with it? Well I took like a month break from Miraculous which I need because I was at the point where I had watched Miraculous so many times and studied it so many times that it was giving me a headache. After I did my Let’s Talk About It for this show, I was like I will not talk about this show or watch it or learn anything about until I could watch it again without like studying it and giving myself a headache. I also stopped because I knew if I kept doing that I would overhype for myself which I don’t want.
But like I said it’s a been a month and episodes have aired and I’m better now and I’m ready to reenter the world of Miraculous. If you don’t know what Miraculous Ladybug is I have two review for it because I wrote the first part and then like a day later I realized I wasn’t done talking about it so I made part two. If you want to know stuff about it then read the first one. It’s streaming on Netflix I think everywhere *don’t quote me on that.. no.. stop it and if you live in France then some of the new episodes have already aired so watch season one and then watch season two and come back. I honestly forgot that it was airing the night this episode came out because I left to get my life together. I was at a restaurant with my sister who also watches the show and I went on tumblr for two seconds and there is Miraculous Ladybug trending. I click on it to discover that the first two episode had aired in France and I lost my cool and so did my sister. I was going to wait for all the episodes to come onto Netflix next month so I could stream them all together like I did with the first season because I knew that if I watched one episode I would want more. But I couldn’t help myself I miss this show and I couldn’t watch season one anymore knowing that more information had come to light and I knew nothing. I watched this episode and next thing I know I spent a lot of the day looking for information now season two because I need it now!
I don’t know if I’ll do this for every episode but I had a lot to say about this one so I thought I would do a review for it. Maybe all do more leading up to it coming onto Netflix for the others who haven’t watched it yet. I don’t know! I enjoyed this episode it was a good start into season two and it gives us a sign that we are getting more this season and I’m loving it! It also doesn’t spend time like telling us what happen last time which is what most shows do when they come back but this didn’t. I didn’t think it was possible but I somehow fell more in love with Adrien / Chat Noir. Every time I saw Adrien or Chat my heart just swooned! Marinette is still amazing and I still love her very much. The Collector was an interesting villain for this episode let me tell you. It was all crazy and amazing. It wasn’t as bad as I thought and what I mean by that is I thought it was going to be Volphia which an episode I had a hard time finishing because I just want everyone to be happy and stupid bitch Lila was going to mess it. There were some moments that came close to that but I survived for now. I would give this episode an +A because I really enjoyed it. I don’t know what else I can say without not spoiling people so I think that’s it for my nonspoilery section. If you have watched this episode please leave and then come back when you have watched. BYE!
WARNING SPOILERS FOR HERE ON OUT
YOU’VE BEEN WARNED
OKAY! I would just let to start with Gabriel Argeste. If you are new here then let me tell you that I have been talking about the Argestes ever since I started this show because we don’t know much about them. I thought that Gabriel was HawkMoth when I first watched season one and as season two got closer I was beginning to change my mind but then what do you know he turns out to be HawkMoth! It was like Thomas was watching me and being like ‘HaHa you thought it wasn’t true so now I’m making it happen’. We start off with Adrien getting in trouble with stealing the Miraculous Book because like Marinette, Nathalie has a bunch of photos of Adrien and is showing them to Gabriel. Why do people have so many pictures of this kid? Where do they get them from? So Gabriel has like a fit over this and tells Adrien that he can’t go to school anymore and then when everyone leaves the room, he just starts destroying it for some reason. I still kind of confuse on why he did it because what the hell man! You just destroyed your house for no reason. He tried to pass his anger off as the book was inspiration for his designs to Adrien and I knew right then it was complete bullshit. We got a better excuse later when he tells Adrien that it was the last thing Mrs. Argeste got him before she disappeared. I’m still wondering if it was even an excuse like maybe that is why he holding onto the book or if he believe it help in the future. I’m still not sure yet.
Marinette has met Master Fu and we met the turtle kwami and like while the whole meeting is going on we just see him and Tikki just goofing around I loved that. It wasn’t something big and important but it was a nice thing to see. We learn that Master Fu is a Guardian of the Miraculouses which was interesting because I thought that he was the Turtle Miraculous holder. Maybe he is both? I don’t know. He tells her that he made a mistake which we already knew that last him the butterfly miraculous and the peacock miraculous and the Miraculous Spell book which was the book that Adrien found in his dad’s safe. Master Fu tells him that whoever had this book last probably is HawkMoth and I knew she was going to lie to save Adrien because that’s what she does. She protects Adrien even though he only sees her as a friend but Adrien protects her when she is Marinette and he is Chat Noir or at least I think that’s whats happening. Marinette just starts freaking out over the fact that she got the book from him and believes that he could be HawkMoth. I couldn’t help but face palm because the girl can’t even realize that she fights next to the boy everyday! I mean yes it was expected for her to have that reaction but for some reason I got upset about it. She goes to the school to find out that Adrien has been pulled out of school for stealing his dad’s book which then leads Marinette to believe that Gabriel is the owner of the book and not Adrien.
We go to HawkMoth which before we got started on that I have to comment on somethings. First off and I’ve talked about this before which the name HawkMoth. We learn that he has the Butterfly Miraculous and if it’s called the butterfly miraculous then why the hell is his name HawkMoth? Like was Butterfly hero not cool enough for you? With Ladybug and Chat Noir there isn’t a lot of creative for them and I guess there is for this other miraculous maybe? Maybe the creators of something were just like oh those two are the most powerful so they don’t get as much creativity with the name. Okay back to what I saying we got to HawkMoth who is getting ready to Akamatize Gabriel and he sends off the akama but it doesn’t leave though and then HawkMoth detransforms into Gabriel *who saw that coming? everyone!. Gabriel decides that he needs to akamatize himself so that he throw him off his trail and my respond to that was who are trying to throw off! Are you using your weird thing that shows you people’s emotions to see that Ladybug thinks you are HawkMoth? Like how does he know that people are beginning to think that they know he is doing all this shit? Does he think Adrien thinks that he is HawkMoth because Chat Noir didn’t even find out until a couple minutes later when Ladybug told him she thought Gabriel was HawkMoth. Either way Gabriel comes The Collector and continues to destroy everything in his house.
Gabriel is like so EXTRA about everything and we already knew he was extra because he locked his son away from the world for years because he was like I have to care about your safety and he won’t let Adrien do anything! And we literally see him destroy his whole house over a book and if he didn’t want anyone to know that he is HawkMoth then maybe you should calm down! He goes to Adrien’s room to like hurt him but he sneaks out to met Ladybug and I was so glad about that. Like no one hurts Adrien no one! Adrien seems really upset when Ladybug tells him that she believes that his dad is HawkMoth and I just wanted to hug him and tell him everything is okay. He believes that there is good in everyone while Marinette sometimes will be like no you’re evil and I hate you which is why their relationship works. Because they strengths and weaknesses seem to even each other out and it makes the a good team. Also I forget that HawkMoth has to say ‘Dark Wings rise’ and ‘Dark Wings Fall’ and when he say it I just died laughing because it still makes no sense to me what so ever. The whole fight at the house was so interesting and it was intense because there were so many moments where I was like shit what if something happens to my kids. Adrien has gone back to believing that his dad is innocent but I know this now and he needs to get away from his father. I love that Ladybug kept checking in on Chat Noir because she could just tell that something was wrong and my heart was just full.
There wasn’t any Lila which I wasn’t expecting. I thought because we weren’t make where we ended then she would be there and she wasn’t which I was so thankful. In this episode we also learned Kwamis can’ be photographed and that Chat Noir’s tail comes off which where two things that I thought were interesting. Gabriel said that he got the over seas so maybe that’s where he also got his miraculous. Also Nathalie knows that he is HawkMoth so I’m wondering how much she is getting paid to kept these secrets. I’m really interested to see what happens next with this whole story and does Gabriel know who Chat Noir and Ladybug are? I need to know more! I’m so excited to see where else this season is going because I can tell you I think this is going to be a good one. I think that our heroes will have to deal with finding identities for each others and HawkMoth and I’m worried that Adrien might discover who his dad is and will side with him and he would fight Ladybug and that’s when the other Miraculous come into play. That would also be cool and break my heart at the same time.
I think that’s it for my review for this episode. IF you would like for me to review the next ones then let me know.
