In 2001 during the year of the first released issue of W.I.T.C.H., I was a 12 year old girl still in the sixth grade and drawing anime style characters, such as Sailor Moon, terribly (I am self-taught in free-hand drawing and I have never took a drawing class). I didn't know of its existence until I saw a commercial about a new animated series called W.I.T.C.H. on the Jetix channel. At the time I didn't pay much attention to it because I was into "Digimon" ( and still am!). A few months later when it was mid-way through the airing of the first season, I got bored enough to watch an episode. At first, I thought that it was interesting and okay, but I wasn't entire hooked yet. A few weeks later after watching my first W.I.T.C.H. episode on television, my family took me and my younger brother to the nearby bookstore. There, I saw the American (slightly censored) version of the original comic series. At first, I thought that it was one of those silly comic adaptation from the animated series and didn't realized that it was actually the other way around until I did some research. I sat there in the bookstore reading the very first 6 issues compacted into 3 books and immediately saw how much of big difference it is from the animated series. I started to watch more episodes of the series, including the ones that I missed and I started to do some more research on its history. By then, I was officially hooked. I fell in love with its unique ways of story-telling and artistic style and I felt that there was a certain charm to it that I have never felt before.
After waiting months on end for the American released, I got impatient and went online instead. To my luck, I was able to find a gold mine of comic scans online and began to read those instead. After years of reading WITCH, I also began to notice the difference as it transitioned itself from one saga to the next. I noticed the changes in the art styles, then the story-telling, then the entire thing which, I admittedly think, is now crap (the changes, not the entire WITCH universe). What was once a magical experience, I find WITCH now somewhat tasteless and a shell of its former glory. There were some issues that I still think was good, while others were so terrible and childish that it makes me preferred its rival, Winx Club, more than itself (Yes, it's that bad). I am now very disappointed that WITCH isn't as great as it used to be, and I find myself criticizing some of its new issues even more. Some people might ask me, "If you don't like it, then why bother continuing to read it?" My only answer is because I can't find myself to hate it entirely. W.I.T.C.H. has been around for a while and I fell in love with it as a teenager. Although I do find that it lost most of its magical touch, there are still some moments which I thought was wonderful enough for me to continue reading.
After ten years, W.I.T.C.H. has changed greatly, but personally, I still find that it still has that certain amount of charm that I just couldn't discard easily. W.I.T.C.H. comics has been a great inspiration to me in more ways than one, and to this day I am grateful to it. After drawing countless works, I finally made a small switch to WITCH art style. Although not best at first (as I'm still learning) I suddenly find myself drawing my own W.I.T.C.H. fanart calendar series, started my very first fan-comic side story of C.H.Y.K.N. (WITCH's predecessors), and now I'm slowly developing my new idea for a full blown WITCH fan-saga (called WITCH: Dreams of Lusteria)!

When the seven dwarfs shoved the glass coffin containing Snow White onto Shrek's dining table because the bed was taken by the Big Bad Wolf, I laughed. When Lord Farquaad interrogated the Gingerbread Man by dumping him in a glass of milk and playing with his bitten off legs, I laughed. When the she-dragon is wearing lipstick and is starting to get romantically intimate with an unsure Donkey, I laughed. But out of all these funny moments in Shrek, I laughed the hardest when Princess Fiona's singing voice got so piercingly high, the bird that sang with her inflated and blew up like a balloon...literally. And what did she do with its eggs? Take care of it because she's responsible for the parent's death? Nope, she cooks them and served them up as breakfast. Absolutely hilarious!
Shrek is an absolute delightful film to watch, and is one of Dreamworks' best and most classic film to date. (It was pretty much the first film to have won the Oscars for Best Animated Featured Film since the category was added to the Academy Awards ceremony during this time.) It's the kind of film that is both newly creative and a bit predictable at the same time. It's full, bright, and brilliant...but also a little bit lacking in some parts.
The film is about fairy tales. Like most fairy tales we've seen or heard, it has a hero with his noble steed rescuing a princess and finding true love. But unlike most fairy tale stories, the hero is an ugly, green, monstrous ogre named Shrek (Mike Myer), his noble steed is nothing more than a talking ass named Donkey (Eddie Murphy), and the beautiful princess is Princess Fiona (Cameron Diez). Shrek only wants to be left alone in his swamp surrounded by his "KEEP OUT!" signs and takes some pleasure scaring the crap out of villagers who dares to step onto his property. Unfortunately for him, Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) is tired of Fairy Tale characters and forced them onto Shrek's swamp because he thinks they make his kingdom imperfect. Wanting to get his swamp back, Shrek and his new annoying companion Donkey decided to go and air their grievances to Farquaad. Farquaad, on the other hand isn't just short on height but also in status: According to the Magic Mirror on the Wall, he's not the king yet unless he marries a princess. In a funny bachelorette game show, Farquaad has chosen Princess Fiona to be his bride and decided to send Shrek and Donkey on a quest to save her for him. Why? Because she's locked in a tower of a castle located in the middle of volcano with a fire-breathing and man-eating she dragon, that's why!
Sure enough, Shrek and Donkey managed to save Fiona and take her back to Farquaad, but it seems she's hiding something whenever the sun is about to set, thus prolonging their journey back home. True enough, Fiona is actually cursed and only true love's first kiss can break it. The problem is that she's not in love with Lord Farquaad for he's not the one who rescued and bonded with her...it's Shrek who grew to like her a lot and she with him. This is the part where the story plot gets a bit predictable in which there is a misunderstand on who's the monster and interrupting the wedding for true love's purposes. Despite some predictable plot lines, the moral of the lesson is very true and very sweet.
Shrek is one of the most enjoyable animated films about fairy tales that I have ever seen. The dialogues are fun as well as the set ups. I have never heard so many ass related jokes that doesn't get tiring. It's even more creative and hilarious when you're mixing the set ups with traditional middle-age buildings and characters with modern day comedy such as a bachelor TV game show with the Magic Mirror or turning Lord Farquaad's castle to a Disneyland-liked theme park. The animation is visually fun to look at. When you look at the characters, you think that they feel so life-liked but at the same time they're fantasy. Voice acting choices were wonderful. like in Mulan Eddie Murphy has been cast as the voice of the sidekick animal and boy is he talkative and funny. I'll admit, it's not really that kid-friendly but it's family-worthy. Shrek isn't perfect...sorry. It's one of the best animated films I've seen from Dreamworks but at the same time, it's also a bit lacking in some parts in which the story is predictable and the potential isn't fully met. All in all, Shrek is a great film. A worthy comedic movie to watch and enjoy whenever you want a laugh.
