After a 3 year gap, Salad Fingers returns in his longest episode yet.
Creepy & unsettling, though not the best
Watched Salad Fingers 9 twice to be sure my mood wasn't interfering with how I was taking the flash, since art can be subjective and how one is immersed can be altered by his/her mood. Glad I did as it's quite chilling and fun :)
Many reviewers have said that the atmosphere wasn't as strong as the previous installments of Salad Fingers, but I disagree as that being the weakness for I felt everything in it worked wonderfully and was well executed, giving that chilling, yet humorous feeling Salad Fingers is known to have. I felt its weakness was its consistency and pacing, as it didn't feel as much like a nightmare in some places, and it felt a tad draggy in some places. Expectations are high for a series that has had 9 very good episodes, and I think many reviewers are overlooking that fact when they look at Salad Fingers 9 critically.
Though this episode was just weak in a few minor places, it delivered an overall creepy and fun experience, as people have come to expect. Part of what makes Salad Fingers work is its atmosphere, and that it occasionally seems to fade in and out (like a dream) and feels disconnected though focused on an idea, suchas when Salad Fingers finds the decaying human torso, he goes from dinner to singing to a crowd his feelings, all centering around the feelings he was projecting onto the body. This episode had that and I especially liked the cameo of the first little creature Salad Fingers met in possession of the spoons and his reaction to seeing the large, creepy main character yet again talking words that made no sense.
Not your best
This really is no where near as good as the original Salad fingers. Its hard to specifically say why but it comes across as perhaps trying too hard for shock with items placed in that are trying to be "trippy" but are obviously meaningless. The dialog in the original even if it was meaningless didn't feel so meaningless since salad fingers has always been more about the atmosphere than the story. Dialog in the original such as "rusty spoons" was disturbing yet for some unknown reason a tiny bit funny (likely due to the spoon being the funniest of the three utensils). The newer salad fingers and in particular this one does not have the same appeal and honestly doesn't feel like a salad fingers cartoon but rather a generic David Firth cartoon which I still don't mind but Salad fingers seemed to be a little different from the rest of your work early on. Even though this episode didn't have the magic of the first 2 its still good to see a salad fingers back and for that I give you a 10 out of respect to this classic.
Good but scary!
Animation good, and Sound quality is good,
But!: Needs a more clearer storyline so pepe can understand feelings and what is happening. <TS>
