I couldn't tell since they never release anything about the 4th season. I don't even know when it's gonna air here in the states.
So why is it awful? I'm sick of the old characters, they're old news. I like the looks of them here. And she said it was "awful" like she'd made it herself, so I couldn't tell if she made it or if it was official.
Anywho, I'm just sick of different people saying "nuuu I miss the old characters!! D:" and "the new characters suck lawl"
Give the new season a try first, THEN you may give a real opinion
