I'm gonna keep up with Wednesdays being my target watch-day at the moment, though I might change that depending on which days are busiest with the new anime season

Aight, I only seem to have access to The Ghost Who Walks, so if there's no obvious episode divisions in the compilation then I'm gonna stop around the 40ish minute mark.

I remember playing a bit of the video game back in the day and being vaguely interested in more of it, but I'm not sure I ever saw the cartoon.

Also on a related note, there was a long-time lucha libre wrestler named El Fantasma who I never really saw in his heydey but in current day, but I've seen a lot of his son El Hijo del Fantasma, including the son losing his Phantom mask a year or so ago.

Ep 1 + 2 (since it's a two-parter anyways)

Spoiler:

- We only have about 20 years to get our world looking like this
- Radical Hoverboarding with BLUETOOTH
- And police robots seem to shoot to kill, just like the real ones
- Turned his arm into a gun like Mega Man?
- Oh, video games
- Resource wars, let's maybe not do those
- Garbage the immediately biodegrades, that's so cool
- Of course, the evil guy has a cat
- They said "murder" in a '90s children's cartoon?
- I can fully believe that '80s synth is back in in the year 2040
- Pew pew pew
- Grand-Aunt Badass dual-wields
- "Only on an artificial heart for a few days until they clone her a new one." That one feels like it'll happen in our lifetimes or just after it, tbh
- I had one of those Phantom rings as a child
- That seems like a random skull-thing to find in a wall
- Damn teenagers and their music and their rioting
- You are the Black Panth- whoops, I mean the Phantom
- Swearing an oath on the skull of his father's killer, that's hardcore
- (Also a little bit white saviour but also kinda funny because it's black people going "... How about we make the white guy do it?")
- "No looters!" "But my friends are in there!" "Who cares?" rofl rofl rofl
- Oh it was at the arcade, the teenagers actually did start the riot
- Robo-dog
- Dog jumped on a metal robot and started biting it, that's hardcore
- Good job giving yourself away while playing with your new toy, Kit
- Eyyyyy, Kit wants to be the Phantom now because then he can nail Jena
- You can eat apple cores in the future.
- "GIVE ME YOUR GUN SONNY, LET AUNTIE SHOW YOU HOW TO USE IT"
- Whooooooooops, now he made an enemy out of the Enforcer
- Homie just savagely murdered that robot
- Oh damn, Grand-Aunt has some of kind of powers/tricks to fool the robo-dog
- Ecological and social collapse, and a corporation is trying to safeguard itself from it all
- Wow, Maximum Inc radicalized Gamergate into the Incel Rebellion
- Tbh if I was like 8 years I would've wanted a toy of Graf(t?)'s big robot thing
- Subliminal messages!

-Clone random organs. Keen.
-He likes the ring.
-Yep, Wikipedia makes up stupid and lazy.
-The cat is his avatar.
-Always busy with work.
-Cyberville? New Detroit?

-Maybe not.
-Still plotting.
-Graft is too pragmatic for cartoon villainy.
-The biot found him.
-Pyramid eggplant.
-Visit Aunt May.
-You're a made man now, kid.
-Oh, she just has an armor suit.
-Don't just stand there getting shot, bro.
-Whoops, unlucky shot.
-Eloise is more willing to be the Phantom than he is.
-The cloak doesn't hide smell.
-She put the whammy on the dog. Eloise has some skills.
-Max Jr. isn't up for the grand scheme.
-But he knows what's up.
-Phantom doing some detective work.
-More gamer riots.
-Hoverbike.
-Time to go to work, Doc.
-Oh, so he's more remake Robocop.
-Aaah, the big body.
-Phantom figured it out.
-Just in time to die.
-Big body's not too agile.
-Time for some police brutality footage. Woohoo!
-Nope, Phantom spoiled the plot again.

*** Peter Chung did the character designs, so everyone looks like extras from an Aeon Flux casting call.

S1E3 and S1E4

Spoiler:

- Saxophones in 2040
- '90s cartoons sure had wimpy sound effects
- Named him Walter White
- The space guy is long and skinny because he grew up in artificial gravity, or did they just draw him funny?
- Hrm, so Cyberville isn't the only escape from environmental failure
- Post-Resource-Wars-Reconstruction. So they already had resource wars.
- Dog knows what's up
- "How about you leave your detective dog inside so we can smash in here"
- Right on, Kit has a Phantom alibi now
- Just stabs right through what she thinks is the Phantom
- Nice going Cruz, got your dog all screwed up on what's what
- Maybe the Professor should get a mask on or something too, guys
- I can't let him shoot missiles in the city, so I'm going to ram him and send him flying down into the city at missile-like speed
- Ohooo, did Heisenberg gain sentience?
- Badass hacker Granny
- Graft is rubbing his chin with his robot hand, but wouldn't he slice up his face doing that
- Prof already moving in on Aunt Eloise
- So if they just throw away all the poor people, they can have a central staging area for the robots that put those poor people out of work
- Thanks, Cowboy Hat guy
- "My father is dead" WHAP Laughing
- Oho, so the Phantom and the Maximum Papa in the pollution trainwreck?
- That's a hell of a lot of machinery just for one brain
- So badass Hacker Granny is actually a boy who sounds like a girl? Wesley Crusher
- Whoops, Cairo/Cowboy Hat Guy is figuring out Phantom's secret identity
- Graft's attack suit is so nostalgic, it's so '90s Robocop or '90s "boss of a level in a 2D beat'em up or shooter"
- Graft shooting on the police, very brazen
- "Comin right up, bitbrain" My brain was ready for the "ch" to follow "bit"

S1 E5

Spoiler:

- That building didn't look big enough for the hover-truck-train-thing to enter it
- Superhero terrorism!
- I like how the mom is treating the son the same way the son is treating the pet cat
- Sparks with the cheeky "It's not like I blew up a building" right in front of Cruz
- Cruz wants the PD (I'm exceptionally proud of coupling "Police Department" and "Phantom Dick" together)
- Max groupie-hunting for Vaingloria
- Sharon Apple concert
- Oh man, Cruz catches Kit leaving Vaingloria's dressing room while she's on stage, not good for the creeper scale
- Coma-fied, that's pretty horrifying
- "Bio-Lassie videos" Do they reward the smartdogs with dog porn?
- How did Graft sneak on them in that giant robot?
- Paper money in 2040
- Max Jr seems like he's giving away the plan on purpose
- "Loving me is forever, and not a one night stand." WHOA WHOA, KID'S SHOW
- So The Phantom's big plan to get back at Rebecca is to ghost-grope her
- Whoa, he did shoot at her
- Hrm, was that skull above the throne there before? I thought Aunt Eloise wondered why it wasn't rebuilt exactly?

S1 E6

Spoiler:

- The internet and Metropia are just a series of tubes
- Black Woman dressed like a Pharaoh, this should be a racially sensitive episode
- I dunno Graft, you were doing pretty well when the robot was smaller
- She can shoot laser beams but she's also using blowdarts
- RIP, animals
- I dunno, Graft, I'd probably just destroy the anti-Toxin so that Goran could die and we'd be down one member of Team Phantom
- The music used in the jungle was definitely used in the video game
- Uh guys, if you kill these two and let Goran die from the toxin, you're severely fucking up Team Phantom
- Did she just fucking kill Graft
- "How can you have a zoo without tissue samples?"
- Dude just put a ninja star in her head
- Mythical shadow panther

Pop stars and diabolical plots.

-Debit disc? Naah, everyone just uses their phone.
-Your thumb has been rejected.
-Sparks getting a bit snarky.
-I guess you can just bring your dog to the show.

Spoiler:

Let Mighty Black Justice be done upon the Phantom.

-Yeah, lots of nasty crud on the subways.
-Of course the black guy is all "By Any Means Necessary".
-Uh oh, black avenger.
(Too bad I never got around to seeing Black Panther. I'm sure I could make all sorts of cheeky Wakanda riffs here.)
-Jeez, this episode is off-model even for AKOM.
-Oh crud, he brought the telescoping body.
-Ha ha! This body is blaster-proofed! Suck it, Phantom!
-Back off, white oppressor! His ass is mine!
-Right in the palm. Ouch.
-Nasty venom dart.
-Pesky animals are gone. Yaaay!
-Pandas were especially annoying.
-But plants are awesome!
-Guran has some pretty sleek activity-based underpants.
-And he's bonkers.
-Awwww, she lost her crown because Phantom put an end to petty chiefdoms and shit.
-Looks like a barren waste. Welcome to Scotland!
-Let's fly a hovercar halfway across the planet!
-42 minutes? That's fast as fuck.
-He found the old Phantom's porn stash.
-Papa Phantom looks and sounds a bit like Graft.
-Graft being practical, but supervillainy carries the day.
-Darn it, she got me in my one small fleshy part.
-Wuh oh, Guran has rabies.
-Look lady, we're trying to do a thing here, mmkay?
-I shall avenge my people, Mighty Whitey!

S1E7

Spoiler:

- Graft still thinking about justice
- Konichiwa
- Training officers to shoot the Phantom with video games even though he won't shoot first IRL
- "Hey, keep these files safe but announce to the world that you have them, thanks bro" Obvious trap is obvious
- Kit gets cockblocked by the Phantom again
- I dunno man, Kit's a fucking nerd who finds researching vegetation exciting, I think his character would actually read old history
- "This debit card gives you untraceable money" BITCOIN
- Graft hilariously gets the jump on The Phantom in his giant walker
- And still dangling the maybe-real files (USB thumbdrives are sure is gigantic in 2040)
- Awww shiiiit, Graft is playing Rebecca too, he just confirmed that she has secret files to the train crash
- Siri, make up a devious plan to hack my boss's e-mail account
- Kit pumping his girl (for information)
- And now Graft is playing Max Jr against Rebecca and the overseas Cyberville partners. He's no Bebop and Rocksteady
- Max Jr projecting his thoughts and feelings through his cat, and now he shakes Graft's hand with robot arms instead of his real ones
- Cruz might've gotten a up-close look at The Phantom's shooting skills
- "You're dead, father, you're not supposed to sleep." That's vicious, Max Jr
- Phantom hasn't done anything wrong, though he did kind of blow up warehouses and destroy property and such
- Graft goes down pretty easy in a fist-fight, guess his robo body is slow and clunky
- But he gets leverage on Rebecca and Kit only ended up with fakes. Graft wins over everyone

S1E8

Spoiler:

- Max Jr has nightmares about happiness, that's such an early '90s bad guy thing
- Is it really training, or could Kit Sr just not find a babysitter?
- "I wish I knew him" You blew off reading your father's diary last ep, Kit
- I like how Sparks says "bits" and half the time it sounds like "bitches"
- Oh whoa, Rebecca's trying to upload Max Sr's brain into a clone or android body
- Probably explain the reasoning for not using the drone camera to Sparks now before he does something silly like trying to plant it himself
- Huh, I was expecting the robot to crash in the chase, but it quite intelligently stopped on a dime and forced its way in to keep chasing Sparks
- Holy shit, Sparks not only derped into the perfect opportunity to plant the drone cam, but also can help haywire Max Sr wreck everything
- Dr Jack putting the moves on Pam Laughing
- I like how Maxwell biot just picks up and carries a fully grown man around
- "I'll keep you safe, son." "That's what Boudolier always says to me." The cat calls him "son"?
- Fucking Graft using the rescue operation to get back Max Jr as even more leverage so Rebecca "owes him one." This fucking guy.
- Damn, Guran and Max Jr are really taking this Max Sr biot seriously
- Max Jr saying "tell ME what happened" and not just using the Cat's name
- Max Sr is getting his memories mixed up on where he was... are Kit Sr's memories in there too or did it get really distorted?
- Wow, the robot just killed itself, that's not going to fuck up Max Jr even more

-Rebecca using a medusa head as her icon is probably indicative of something.
-Doing business with geisha girls.
-Sorry dude, you've got a restraining bolt.
-Training simulator.
-Doctor Jakk does all the news shows. He must have a deal with Maximum or something.
-Hubert!
-Yep, he's Maximum's PR guy.
-I wonder if Graft feels like he's naked all the time?
-Almost a title drop.
-Phantom doesn't have time for crusty history lessons, but he does like jewelry.
-Bribing the senior officer.
-Channel 880 has its own building.
-Oh, we're doing the '80s Running Man.
-Freebooting will only get you in trouble.
-Oops, Rebecca spilled her beans.
-Yep, your boss is crooked. Sorry Cruz.
-Kit, you smoothie.
-Graft making some side deals.
-Crooked cop trying to clean up his mess.
-Phantom making some deals of his own.
-Well, Jakk will take opportunities when he sees them.
-Yeah, nobody bother to keep an eye on the wanted guy who just surrendered.
-Whaaaaaaat? He has to do the whole activation callout for a dropkick?
-You'd think Graft's robot body would be strong enough not to get pinned like that.
-Naaah, she's not ready to switch loyalties just yet.
-Graft's deal worked out so far.
-Cruz is back to Phantom hunting.


Phantom 2040 S1E8: The Ghost in the Machine

Spoiler:

Maxwell Madison Sr. returns, sort of.

-Max's turn to do a moody voiceover.
-Jeez, he's had the cat this whole time?
-Hey, even the Phantom does Take Your Kids To Work day.
-We all need expensive lifting platforms to do full VR.
-Meanwhile, the in the Evil Tower of Ominousness...
-Hahahaha. "Push the button, Frank."
-Well, she made herself a husband doll.
-You can order mad scientist equipment online. Makes sense.
-Miniaturized drone camera. Score.
-Frank had a bad day at work.
-Industrial corridor chase.
-Don't lose any body parts in the droid factory, Anakin.
-Crazy dude with cables hanging out of his head asks you to open a door, you do it.
-Sorry dude, your tech's out of date.
-Max Sr's not reacting well to the new era.
-Dorky old land taxi.
-When weird shit is on live TV, it's Phantom time.
-Max Jr's just getting dragged around like a raggy doll.
-Oh, we can't use the secret biot army that we're not supposed to have.
-Toxic sludge train wreck!
-That doesn't seem like a Phantom sort of thing to do.
-Now that you remember you died, you have to die again.
-Max Jr is too busy being traumatized to chew out Rebecca for now.

Phantom 2040 S1E9 and 10: Dark Orbit, Parts 1 and 2

Spoiler:

Plots to destroy the Earth, and abuse Australia.

-Wacky flying fish.
-Eaten by a leaping shark.
-Transuranic elements.
-Random investigative hijacking.
-Phantom has learned to ride Shai-hulud.
-Ha, it wasn't the Phantom blowing shit up after all.
-Dropping more trash in the ocean.
-Time for an ecology lesson.
-Someone's being sneaky.
-Oh, just a giant death ray is all.
-I blame the Spacenoid!
-Hey hey, Strine Woman!
-So, she's basically a pink Jabba with an atrocious accent.
-Pirates! Phantoms know how to deal with pirates.
-Yeah, just go ahead and explain your villainous plot for everyone.
-Zeon did it first.
-They're stealing us with a giant air clamp! Who knew they had one of those?
-And the next wrestler entering the ring is... Graft!
-Look out! He has oversized door handles.
-Ad hoc tag teams never work out in the end.
-That, or engaging in a World's Strongest Biot contest.
-2 on 1. Bad odds for the Phantom.
-Nobody ever believes the Critter Alarm.
-Yep, first rule of conspiracies: bump off the co-conspirators.

***

-Oh! He's a Natural Spacenoid.
-Phantom's working with Trench.
-Ha, a conference call.
-Graft's shoulder tat will probably be explained in his origins episode (I'm sure there will be one at some point; this is that kind of show).
-You silly supervillain. You shouldn't show it off until *after* it's finished and has blown away a few planets... cities.
-That's your house, honey! (You've outlived your usefulness as well.)
-Nope, I guess they're not quite finished after all.
-I would say Sean gets partial credit as a Char Clone.
-Hahahahahahahahahah! Phantom and Graft really don't disguise well at all. (One would think Phantom's camo screen has more settings than Lanky Purple Hero.)
-He almost looks like a miscolored Gray Ghost here.
-A trap?! In a scuzzy joint like that? Quelle surprise.
-Well, they apparently bought off Trench earlier.
-Huh. I guess he installed clones in the other platforms? Seans 2, 3, and 4?
-So much villainy he lost track.
-And I don't suppose Gorda will figure out what Max Jr and Guran have in common? (But honestly, she probably doesn't look past the first page of results on Cairopedia.)
-Damn, everyone in this cave scene is waaaaay off-model.
-Yeesh, Phantom just karate chops a headless robot that Graft's couldn't break free from? His body must really be lowest-bidder garbage.
-You can tell they're girl biots because they have bikini and crop top outlines.
-Graft is about 20 frames back, love.
-Biot clubbery, lol. At least it wasn't a robot kangaroo.
-AH-HA! There's our robot kangaroo.
-And it went down easy. Fake level boss.
-There goes our ride!
-Saaaay, I bet he has some useful data.
-You know, just vaporizing a shit ton of ocean would wreck the Earth too.
-Sorry Max. Freaky space dude won't fry your mom for you after all.
-Naaah, Graft is too jaded to be a good guy.

S1E9

Spoiler:

- IT'S THE CIIIIIIRCLE OF LIFEEEEEE
- Ohooo, I thought the Phantom was the one making the air freighters disappear, but destroying them would mean pollution
- Kill-o-meters
- "Defense" Particle Beam Cannons to wipe out rioting poor people with
- So they've got a woman doing a Jabba the Hutt deal, and then in contrast, a dude who's super skinny because he's lived his life in artificial gravity (that's a neat little detail)
- I like how they actually show Gorda with octopus tentacles reaching out
- So this space guy is going full Neo Zeon
- Kit sure saves Max Jr often enough
- Wow, the Biots programmed to invade the shipment aren't programmed to not shoot at the cargo
- Eyyyy, Graft brought some big guns this time instead of a clunky giant robot
- Awriiight, a "good guys and bad guys work together" episode
- Whoops, let his guard down and the bad guys got'em
- I forget, did his Phantom mask have some kind of special seal that no one else could take it off? Because otherwise, the bad guys should take his mask off or kill him immediately or something
- Ah yeah, it does bond to him. But maybe still kill'em quick?
- Ohooooo. So Graft shot Max to let the Phantom go, but does Max realize it?
- Ha, Rebecca hates Boudelair
- It's interesting how much the villains of the show are manipulating each other and trying to play leverage against each other. And this is a children's cartoon

S1E10

Spoiler:

- I like how Dr Jak can easily get facetime interviews with terrorist leaders
- Cairo trading favours for Phantom biopics
- That's so cool, Phantom, Cairo and Graft meeting in secret (probably without Rebecca's knowledge) to try to figure out how to take down Sean One
- Sean One is shooting Gorda, this fucking guy
- Graft wearing an eyepatch rofl
- So Max must've been in on letting the Phantom go
- Gorda knows who Graft is, and yet the eye patch is tricking her completely
- And she would absolutely know Max Jr's face
- Tigeroos? As in Tigers and Kangaroos?
- I like how this episodes shows that Graft can actually kick a lot of ass
- Damn, even Baudelaire can kick ass
- Whoa, hand-rockets out of nowhere blow up the VTOL rocketspaceship
- This walking TV monitor fight where they can feel pain is pretty goofy
- Max Jr isn't going to warn Rebecca, that's fucked up
- D'awwww, Kit and Hubert have a newfound respect for each other

I just now realized that the Walker in "Kit Walker" is a pun because he's the Ghost Who Walks

S1E11

Spoiler:

- Orbital mail drop
- Eyyyyy Heisenberg
- Glad she's his "friend"
- Holy shit, he just killed Max Jr by turning into a wall rofl
- Archer and ASS
- San Francisco Islands, water level situation didn't get better
- Huh, Heisenberg wants to find the Phantom so he can get his memories of being an Anti-Phantom T-1000 back
- Selling feelings as VR drugs? Was she selling the feeling of eating good food too? Very Sword Art Online
- They never got around to developing bluetooth before the resource wars
- Everyone wears trenchcoats and hats when they go investigatin
- Dr Jak takes bribes because the ratings will go up when he exposes it. That's amazing
- Pav is programmed to make gagging noises when something's wrapped around her neck
- Heisenberg has a creepshot of Pavlova
- "It's just not the same when I do it myself." HEYYYYYYYY
- Pretty sweet shootout
- Ohoooo, so Heisenberg could potentially be the beginning of sentient AI in Biots

S1 E12

Spoiler:

- Oh man, Cairo summing up the social media and internet era pretty accurately
- Did that street blob just kill a dude
- Damnnnnn, Spark's parents killed too
- Oh, just dragged away
- Rebecca's sure into Graft's... attachments
- Eyyyy, Sparks' parents are a still kicking, maybe, but in Cyberville
- Max Jr made a terrible pun, took a second, and then laughed to himself, god dammit rofl
- Kit just gave a teenager a laser gun, this should end well
- Ouch, Gauntlet modeled after Sparks parents
- Gargoyle Mode Graft
- Graft has a soft-spot for children, eh?
- Interesting how half the time Graft is trying to kill them and half the time he kinda wishes he could just leave
- "To know your own beginnings, how glorious it must be." Cairo not know where he came from either?

Phantom 2040 S1E11: The Biot in Red

Spoiler:

Robots and cylinders, oh my.

-Meanwhile, on Side 3...
-A robot! That explains the lack of zero-g boobs.
-Random implausible leap off a building.
-The bikes should transform into power armor suits to fight, but this isn't Mospeada.
-Rogue biot again.
-Presidential sax.
-Turning into a sturdy wall can be useful.
-By all rights, Max should have 20 broken bones and be clinically dead right now.
-Random visor scanner. Oooookay.
-Oh yeah, remember the sidekicks?
-Cyber opium den, yeah.
-Standing around plotting in the open and shit.
-He taking the cylinder that the biot is still holding? Bad, bad AKOM animators.
-Phantom's looking pretty beefy here.
-At some point, Graft's going to quit bring out the big clunky suit just to get beat up.
-Oh, I suppose the cylinder is going to be not crushed now.
-I'm not seeing it either. They've had practically no interaction at all.
-Planting the seeds of the robot revolution.
-Hanging out in the Train Station of Doom.


Phantom 2040 S1E12: The Gauntlet

Spoiler:

Sparks gets his tragic backstory.

-Trench's turn for a moody voiceover.
-Yeah, feelings and friendships suck!
-It's his old house from before his folks ditched him.
-Trench is doing quite a bit of pro bono work.
-His folks got kidnapped for weird science.
-Sorry Robin, you've got to sit this one out.
-I'm sure Graft just looooooves being his boss's back massager.
-Yeah, because postnational corporations always conduct unethical research in random apartment buildings.
-One might think Max was learning to move in zero-g...
-Sorry kid, the blob... blanket... I dunno what, got you.
-But shooting up Graft's bodies every other episode is perfectly fine, so have fun.
-Sorry kid, it's your parents.
-And you've got to shoot them.
-Flyboy suit this time.
-Nice Adidas, kid.
-Graft's a bit of a softy.
-That was a hint of something from Trench.

A MOSPEADA reference. I've only seen the Robotech version, but that's a reference I never thought I'd hear another human being make Shiny/thrilled

Wait, are you a robot?
