By popular demand, here’s my second reflection.
MCF: THE RETURN OF KIRA
Ah, the Mystery Case Files, a series that literally jumped season 1 to season 6 with no build up and vice versa, shoe horning in every fandom you can think of with literally no thought or reason outside of “it sounds cool.”
AND it really shows here.
For those who weren’t aware, in season 5 of MCF, there was supposed to be a Death Note crossover where Tracy Tennyson (’s OC) would suddenly become Light’s apprentice to protect her friends. Sounds like a typical OC suddenly becoming a character’s interest story. It could have worked..except..
- This is a universe where Madoka Magica, MLP, Pokemon, Blazblue, Marvel and DC (EVERY ANIMATED FILM AND LIVE ACITON FILM IN THE SAME CONTINUITY) take place and there;s a LOT of people who can easily kill Light.
- Light would just kill the MCF anywheres. Plus this raises the question of if Winter Soilder happens in this universe (and it’s been confirmed it does) and Black Widow released info of HYDRA agents..why didnt Light kill the agents?
- Light casually accepts magic ..does nothing bout it.
- Tracy has had TOO many arcs to this point and despite her sister being a former villain..she agrees with Light that evil must die.
Anyways..this is …the start of the end of MCF.
Months after the events of MCF; Death Note, Tracy somehow has nightmares about Light returning despite her friends trying to clam her down alongside her godfather Tony Stark, adopted father Ben Tennyson and real mother Anastasia (Yes..that Anastasia) telling her over wise.
However..her evil just for the sake of it cousin Shirona receives a death note from Ryuk and frees Mikami from his prison. (Here he has his memories intact..makes you question the intellect of Near for NOT burning his Death Note). Explaining through a evil song, they resurrect Light yagami, hide in a cafe with NO disguises, Misa just randomly joins them alongside Paulina from Danny Phantom who apparently is a full blown villain here to take over Cartoon Town and revenge on the MCF.
….1. Light would never alley himself with the most obvious of villains.
- He’d just kill the MCF when brought back.
- He accepts Cartoons being alive to easily.
So he gets himself arrested just to rip off Heath Ledger joker and get free for no reason and then takes over the town by ripping of Bane. And you’re not gonna believe this..EVERYONE in Cartoon Town is a Kira supporter.
The MCF are forced to abandon their loved ones and Tracy joins Light to protect the MCF, convinced she;s doing the right thing after writing half of Wing Skellington (’ OC) name because she’s a new member of the MCF and a thief..no build up for this hatred.
Oh and she’s known who Kira was even before MCF: Death Note…WHY SHE DIDN;T JUST TELL THEM WHO KIRA IS BEFORE MCF: DEATH NOTE , I’LL NEVER KNOW.
So she goes off with Saber and Ragna (from Fate Zero and Blazblue..two of the most overpowered characters) whist the other girls f off god knows where. Tracy’s twin Tricia is trained by Ras Al Ghoul , which brings me to these two facts..
- Ras Al Ghoul would moan in pleasure at the idea of a Death Note.
- ..THE MCF leave their students behind with no knowledge of what Kira is capable of.
Speaking of which, the students are all put on trial and chosen to cross a frozen river in Cartoon Town (sound fucking familiar?!) , these members include many such as Dipper Pines, Mabel Pines, Dawn, tracy’s other siblings, Homura Akemi-
…………..I’ll come back to that.
Tracy is suddenly so full of hatred for the MCF it;s unreal and Cartoon Town is basically Gotham in DKR now. Then again, i’d be pissed if my friends were just singing a MLP song and waste precious time before saving the students. Anyways, Tracy is ordered by Light to write down Wing’s name after the latter killed some Kira Supporters (for NO reason might I add) and of course Tracy agrees and instantly does it- NOPE. Shriona has to sing ‘Unleash the Evil’ infront of her lover Light, who might I stress does NOT view himself as Evil- to do it. Wing instantly collapses …and comes back. It turns out that isn’t her real name, which begs the question of why she even collapsed.
For some reason furious that she can;t kill a friend, Tracy turns into her Hyde form to kill them (Light does NOT react) and Sunset Shimmer alongside Tricia defeat her. Princess Luna tells Tracy to come back but she goes off with Light with another deal to protect her loved ones. Light refuses and kills them-
Nope. He agrees. Yep. He lets the biggest threats he’s ever seen, magical girls and ponies LIVE. Oh and he becomes King of the Shinigami.
Wing is given a reason to hate Tracy even though Tracy;s reasoning was so forced and didn’t even work, Hermione Granger takes Tracy’s place and the newest Kira sings ‘Defying gravity as she ascend into Tyoko, a Tyoko ruled under Kira..
…God this was just…terrible. Just painful.
The setting doesn’t work and clashes horribly, especially when in this universe, everything canon from every show happened. At least with my story I’m trying to make changes tot he characters, here there is no difference.
Light is portrayed dumber than usual and only wins because everyone else is a dumbass by comparison. The MCF are so useless here it;s not funny, Sunset and Hermione are just here to be Diet Tracy.
But my two biggest problems..in the MCF verse, Homura maintains her demon and time powers..she had the power to kill light the entire time and didnt just freeze time and kill them…then again we need a plot.
and Tracy…sigh..I’m gonna be honest…and i’m sorry ..I hate this character. She is supposed to be Tony Stark and Light Yagami levels of intellect..so why is she acting Ed and Patrick Star levels of stupidity? She joins light knowing he can’t be trusted, knowing he can just be killed like that, turns on her family just because …reasons, hates Wing outta the blue (whose just as responsible as she is) and has the nerve to blame the MCF..
She is the one who became friends with Light, she is the one with apparently requested he’d be buried (somewhere near Cartoon Town it seems), she had a DEATH NOTE. A FUCKING DEATH NOTE. JUST WRITE THEIR NAMES DOWN!
this arc didn't need to be exist; Tracy has had enough arcs. It's MCF! NOT Tracy and the MCF!
I’m glad this arc was cancelled because the villains Light teams up with in future stories (I wish I was kidding ) is a insult to his character (Lord Hater, Bill Cipher, Hazama, Nightmare Moon, Starlight Glimmer and Joker). This is why Light and a Death Note just don’t work in a magical realm for TOO long. AND HE DOES NOT ALLEY HIMSELF WITH THE MOST OBVIOUS OF VILLAINS! HE DOES NOT VIEW HIMSELF EVIL. WHY ARE PEOPLE FINDING THIS DETAIL SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND! HE IS NOT A OBVIOUS VILLAIN! HE VIEWS HIMSELF AS THE ONLY ONE TO BRING PEACE!
