Episode 2/42:

THX review crew!
edit: For everyone who has asked, this is part 2 of 42 episodes, so yes, there will be more =D. This episode was made mostly to give a good feel of the main characters and the world he lives in, plus it sets up for episode 3.

After more than 6 months of work it's finally done! I hope all have as much fun watching this as I had making it!

Stylish, Unique, and Incredible

Where do I start...? Man, I don't want to sound like I'm kissin up, but this movie did no wrong as far as quality. You've established a beautiful world for these characters that's unique and intricate, awash with this urban-celtic fusion that's amazing to the eye. The character designs are on par with the best. The first movie, the trailer, made me think about the Jak games, which I'm in love with, but you've proven that this is something fresh and incredible that left me cheesin' through the whole flick. Together with the perfect music selection (Which I think you said is original for the movie somewhere), I couldn't look away. I also found the voice acting well done, thoguh hard to hear for Khale's older brother(?)
Other than that, the flash was amazing, brotha'. I've waited so long for somebody to bring a great new original series to Newgrounds and you did it. It's just got this flavor about it that's new, but seems strangely familiar. This is Newgrounds' next hit. But I'm pissed that it's only a 4.30 right now, it should be a 4.70. Keep up the good work, you've inspired me for my works.

I've been waiting for this since I first saw episode 1. That flash was the reason I got hooked on VNV nation.
Once again, great animation and great choice of audio.
Can't wait for the next episode, but I guess i'll just have to.
Thanks for submitting this, really loved it.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Really liked it but, are you gonna make 42 episodes of this ... it would be amazing but it's gonna take a while don't you think ?

Anyway , awesome movie , really liked you style

Incredible, Volume Leveling Could Use Work

To start, big congrats on getting out episode 2. I enjoyed it quite a bit. However, a large problem was volume levels. Many a times, for "noises," characters make, I had to turn to volume up so it was blasting in my ears in order to hear it, and I bearly could at some points even doing that. Further, in regards to voice over work, I feel as though if you're going to voice over some, voice it all. If you finish the episode, and realize there are points where the character would make a noise that you hadn't anticipated, inform your VAs, so they can send in the sound for you. You can send them the video so that they can synch up the noises (or just have them do it without the video). A lot of places left me a bit confused, because it seems like there should be a sound there, and it really bothered me. Khale was missing a huge number of sounds, which especially bothered me in the, "action scene" with his, brother I believe? It was great, but could have been a whole lot more had there been some "action" noises. Other places where noises were very noticibly missing were Khale in the beginning, "Inhales, etc." And the scene where Tilix steals the Legs. I feel like while you did decide to have it be an orchestrated scene, rather than one with noise, I personally think what was going on could have been much clearer had the shopkeeper, the buyer, Tilix, and Lar made the noises to correspond with what they were doing. Again, I love this, and I can't wait for the next episode. The Flash is amazing, and I can't wait for episode 3. Great job, and keep up the good work.
xD SEEDies. Nice.

Looks Good

I mean, this took forever to get here after the 1st episode was released many, many months ago. I was expecting a bit more from it, to be honest.

I will say, that the world you've created is quite good and it seems like you put a ton of thought into creating it. It's quite intuitive and interesting.

On the other hand, the voices used do not match the characters and I feel it throws the whole feel of the movie off balance.

Good movie though. Deserving of a 9.
