My Life Me is a short-lived French-Canadian animated television series created by JC Little, Cindy Filipenko and Svetlana Chmakova, co-directed by Mr. Niko. The show is aimed at a pre-teen audience, and features manga symbols such as sweatdrops, speech bubbles, and super-deformed chibi characters.

The series first aired on the French-language Télétoon on September 19, 2010. It was shown on the English-language channel Teletoon from September 5, 2011 to September 30, 2011.

Plot

The show centers around on Birch Small, a 13-year old girl manga and anime fan (otaku) with aspirations of becoming a comic artist, as she tries to survive high school.

Bad Qualities

  1. The show tries so hard to be like an anime, but fails horribly due to the exaggeration of known anime/manga iconography. Some good anime-influenced shows that do it properly are Avatar: The Last Airbender, Code Lyoko, Totally Spies!, Wakfu, Kappa Mikey, Boondocks and most of Marathon Media's shows during the pre-Zodiak Kids era, but at least they tried.
  2. The character designs look like they were ripped from Zwinky and something out of a tutorial book on how to draw the manga/anime style.
    • Not to mention they look really uncanny, they move like marionettes.
    • Even the faces they make are uncanny as well, like the picture above!
  3. Many animation errors, the biggest example is Amelia’s hair switching sides.
  4. The characters are annoying, bland and milk-toasted versions of all the characters from Azumanga Daioh!, Lucky Star, Haruhi Suzumiya, 6teen, Stōked, and Total Drama.
  5. The title of the series sounds like a bad translation done in Google Translate that turns into "Engrish" once the translation process is done.
  6. The summary of the show says that the characters are 13, when they actually look 15-17.
  7. Too many teen stereotypes.
    • Sandra Le Blanc is a fiery hag.
    • Raffi is a hopeless suitor.
    • Liam is plain stupid.
    • Amelia is an alpha bitch.
    • Birch can't decide if she is emo, hipster or otaku.
  8. Boring and forgettable soundtrack.
  9. Cheap flash animation.
  10. Mediocre voice acting, the chibi forms of the characters make it worse since they’re high-pitched, making them sound whiny.

Good Qualities

  1. Unique and creative storyline.
  2. Has some episodes that are well-structured.
  3. The theme song is a bit catchy, there’s even a full version on SoundCloud!
  4. Birch and Mr. Towes are likable characters.
  5. At least the show deals with some teenage issues.
  6. It gained a cult following, considering how short-lived the series was.

Reception

My Life me got a 3.3/10 rating on IMDb.
