As of July 10th of 2014, the executive producer has given the role of producer to CSketch, this might mean really slight changes to the way the episodes are written, but it will try to stay as close to the orignal as possible.
On September 8th of 2014, the series was given to Exotoro by the producer CSketch. Exotoro and SuperSonicDarkness are planning a new series within the same universe as FTAS, and may be considered a pseudo-reboot but nothing is concrete.
The show focuses on the large family of heroes and villains living in Weststar, a western styled moon with some sci-fi elements. The show is often humorous but sometimes is serious and has a variety of arcs as well, dealing with backstories as well as sometimes just funny and pointless. The show looks very similar to the video game Super Smash Bros. Brawl with art done by Sorastitch. Average length of an episode is a half hour, but the show sometimes deviates.

- Alternative Character Interpretation: Most of the characters have different backstories and different personalities.
- One of the special cases is Flip, here, he is considered a homicidal maniac, even getting his own arc where he pretty much "flips the fuck out" and kills everyone.

- Disable Snarker: Britt, sometimes.
- Intercontinuity Crossover: With Fantendo High.
- Dark and Troubled Past: 's past.'
- Troubled, but Cute: after .
- Deal with the Devil: White Hood used to work with Satan himself.
- Depending On The Writer: Since there is many different people working in many different episodes, most of the characters suffers from this. Examples include:
- Britt. In Baking Bad, she is portrayed as a Deadpan Spanker, however in Random Access Memories, she is portrayed as a smart person.
- Unten. The pilot, Random Access Memories and You Just Don't Get It features different interpretations of Unten.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip/Grand Theft Me: One of the episode ideas, "Flipten", is about Unten and Flip switching bodies.
- I Just Want To Be Loved: One of the episodes, features Scotch trying to look for a girlfriend.
- Gainax Ending:

- Shout-Out: Many of them.
- One of the not yet confirmed episodes, Mystery Beorn Theater 9000 is a reference to Mystery Space Theater.
- The name "Flip the Fuck Out" is a reference to a running gag in Homestuck.
- Does the name John Thron sounds familiar to you?
- Baking Bad. You are probably thinking about a cake being a bandit and stealing money to heal his disease.
- The discovery arc have two shout-outs to music, Random Access Memories is a reference to a Daft Punk album and Somebody That I Used To Know is a reference to a Gotye song.
- SuperSonicDarkness tends to use this trope.
- Adolescent Cash, the record label featured in The Big Hit episode, is a parody of the record label Young Money.
- Blade Art Online. Please don't tell me I have to explain the reference to you.
- Team Mom: Pashie.
- There Can Be Only One: The "Beorn Games" episode, to leave the island, they must kill each other, only one can leave.
- Troubled Backstory Flashback: Most of the Discovery arc episodes features this.
- Rachel seems to have this in spades too, with a lot of episodes alluding to a drug-filled past and her suffering from depression.
- Wham Episode: Season 2 seems to be full of this:
- Bold New Direction, which SEVERELY changes a lot of the elements of the show.
- Prometheus, which features Rachel leaving the group.
- Helen, which features Britt leaving the group.
- Old-Timey Photo Club, the revelation that Ella Metals and Jake are secretly dating.
- In the Eyes of God, the group disbands entirely and a god attacks the Multiverse.
- Happy Happy Fun Time, which was a season 1 episode, is one of these too. Rachel's drug problems are first discovered here and they don't ever stop.
- Since this is one of Exotoro's favorite tropes, it doesn't look they'll stop either.
- Random Access Memories. Unten discovers about his true past and it is not pretty.
- How To Stop Doomsday. Featuring Unten in an eternal loop to save his friends with a small chance of success. The wham part comes at the end.
