My Review of Xiaolin Chronicles

Intro: Different from Xiaolin Showdown's slow paced intro, but it's not bad. I like how it differentiates itself by using a different fast paced song. My favorite part is easily Omi saying "Xiaolin Chronicles" at the beginning, followed by the group saying their elements.
Voices: They're a mixed bag, but they're not bad. Clay was a little rough and had enunciation issues (Master F---, anyone?), but he was decent. Raimundo is still good. Tara Strong hasn't lost her touch as Omi, and she's excellent as Ping Pong. Chase Young's was pretty weak, but eventually settled in. Wuya is good, Jack Spicer is also good, but just needs to get the girly screams down. I actually liked Dojo and Kimiko's voices better than the originals. Master Fung was okay.
Designs and Names: Didn't care about the new names, since I forgot most of them anyway. I preferred yellow Dojo (when large) to green Dojo. Also like how the Xiaolin warriors are a little taller.
Plot: The Willow reveal was already predictable, but other than that, I thought XC had a stronger beginning than XS, I was actually sad when Master Fung left them, as he's the best XS character. It's not gonna feel the same without him, but I'm sure it'll still be good. At the same time, Master Fung leaving them forces then to grow on their own without someone to mentor them all the time, which will be vital to development.
Humor: Perfect, except for the nasty humor (looking at you, Dojo.) Take out him squirting out milk and it's perfect.
