"At first, the Nextgen Series was going to be a series of friendly, casual adventures... then before I knew it, a lot of crazy shit happens." -Gamewizard2008


The Nextgen Series, officially called Kids Next Door: The Next Generation, or the Second Gameverse Series, is a story series about the 2nd generation of KND by Gamewizard2008, with the shared universe of Numbuh 6.13, and is the second half of the Gameverse series. The series takes place around 20 years after the original series, when all of the kids are grown up and have kids of their own, most of those kids becoming part of the New KND. Like the original series, the Nextgen Series includes crossover characters from different franchises, though it mainly focuses on the new operatives. While the Nextgen Series started off as a one-shot series and featured minor events or conflicts, it was eventually fleshed out as a continuation of the overall Gameverse, expanding the universe and its complex storyline.

Viridi SagaEdit

The Viridi Saga is the first saga in the Nextgen Series. The saga focuses on stopping the Goddess of Nature, Viridi, who has arisen and aims to destroy mankind. This saga mainly introduces the future kids and their respective conflicts. The stories are as follows:

Big Mom SagaEdit

The Big Mom Saga, otherwise called the Pre-Seven Lights Saga, is the second saga of the Nextgen Series. It introduces crossover sectors such as W7 and JP, while the rest of the saga is setting up for the Seven Lights Saga.

Seven Lights SagaEdit

The Seven Lights Saga is the third and final saga of the Nextgen Series. Its primary story where all major events happen is Legend of the Seven Lights. It also includes major stories like Down in the Negaverse and Fairy Sisters, which take place at earlier parts of the timeline, and whose main purpose is worldbuilding.

ReceptionEdit

The Nextgen Series is being received well. Reviewers consider it to be a lot more lighthearted compared to Gamewizard's original series, and the character development for certain characters, as well as their personal conflicts, are nicely done. Some people criticize how some conflicts are resolved too quickly, namely Fybi's when her wings were destroyed, and they could've gone on longer in the series. Some stories, like SCARY or MASKED, were very praised because of the adventure.

When the Big Mom Saga came into being, the series earned much more praise for expanding the overall universe, featuring far more intense or complex storylines, and character development that's noted as a drastic improvement over the original series. But many of the stories feature mainly One Piece crossovers, a fact that was frowned upon as it left little room for other crossovers. A similar problem occurred during the Viridi Saga, featuring Kid Icarus crossovers, although those were all connected to a main story, and in the end was overlookable with the appearance of other crossovers. Several later stories such as RECLAIM, NECSUS, or Candied Adventure were praised with utilizing ideas from both the First Series and the Codename: Kids Next Door cartoon, and expanding or continuing upon those ideas.

The First Series was always noted for essentially borrowing plotlines or qualities from other media - such as action stages from games - being a crossover series like Kingdom Hearts, and while the Nextgen Series continues this tradition, it does so in a fashion that appears to have more originality and make itself seem more appealing. A prime example from the First Series was Operation: DUTCHMAN, whose general "ripoffs" around the end parts of the story declined its quality. A prime example from Nextgen is Operation: CLOWN, and omitting the fact it was a One Piece crossover, the taken plotline was refigured in a manner that befitted the Nextgen Series' story, redone in a way Kingdom Hearts would, and making it generally connect and bare importance with the main storyline.
