Continues the story of episode 1. The military still is investigating on the demon case while they get new hint.
I think you should listen to the other reviewers here, tweening animations works well for elements of an animation or for cartoons such as South Park, Powerpuff Girls etc.
Your storytelling deserves more life and you will find that by animating more in frames. Try to slowly build this into your animation work and you will notice at these parts how much more fluid and alive your work will seem.
I look forward to more!
Things you need to work on: Facial expressions, detail and making your action scenes a bit more... exciting. I personally would recommend switching from tweening to frame by frame (It may take more time, but it always comes out a lot nicer). The voice acting could be better too.
Okay, I am going to give an honest review.
Animation: I noticed you used a lot of tweening and transformation. In the end it did you more harm than good. I see way to much tweening and it was a bit distracting, taking away from the the storyline. Coupled with mouth flaps that didn't do the animation its justice. I would like to see more animation. There wasn't enough Facial Expressions to understand what the characters are feeling. You have to put more emphasis on facial expressions so that we can actually feel what the characters are going through. The expressions you have seems like they are just staring blanking into a void of nothing, seemingly as though the characters are robotic and lack life. When the man in the alleyway got shot, I didn't feel it. His back should of arced forward, blood should have sprayed, his head should of cocked backwards. Instead he just went down. Have them furrow their eyebrows, grit their teeth in anger, smile, grin, laugh, ect... You also have to animate the jaw, lip, teeth, and tongue movement when you are making them talk... it is a tough task, even just animating the characters to talk. Even the turning of their heads. I also want to see more extreme camera angles. I would also like to see over the shoulder shots of people talking. I would also like to see the use of blur effects when it comes to establishing distance. Doing this would draw more people into the story.
Art: I am only going to judge the art based on realism. The character are a bit disproportionate. A lot of the characters look the same and it was hard keeping up with who is who. The jawline is suppose to run up before the ear. The color choices are simple but effective. I would like to see better use of lighting. When they are in a dark room coming up with evil schemes, I want to feel like they are in a dark room. The art is pretty good though, don't get discourage.
Audio: Music does have a good mood set, it is creepy so it is perfect. Some of the voice acting was lacking... like the female voice. It is funny how you used your own voice to try to mimic a females voice. Good touch. The demonic voices is very good. Keep that. Some voices, are not believable. I think it is a quality factor. Some of the voices sound a bit distant.
Story: I am pretty sure that the story is good, but it was a bit hard to get into it because some of the characters are indistinguishable. You would really have to work hard to distinguish one character from the other. The characters seem a bit 1 dimensional. I would like to see what makes the characters tick. What are each of the characters quirks. Is one so incredibly lazy and isn't a by the book type of person, but somehow gets the job done. Is one so uptight that he has the reputation of a straight arrow? What is the relationship with each other? Do they hate each other but have to come together to reach a common goal? Or are they life time partners that know how to use each others' strengths.
Overall: I am sure this is a very good story. But you can tell a story without using a lot of words. I want to see more character development. It was hard to get into the story because I wasn't attached to the characters in the story. I want to take the journey with them. I think you will do great. Don't get discourage. Just heed my advice and I guarantee you will knock it out of the park and rule the world. Just do more animating and less tweening. I hope my advice help, and I will be rooting for you all the way. Now get out there and create a masterpiece!
This was... yeah. The animations are good in some places, then absolutely terrible in others. The voice acting is terrible other than one or two characters. and the story is really dull and awkward. I don't really understand why they have such over sized heads but it really isn't working and you try to give more emotion to the characters than you draw. By that I mean that they keep the exact same mouth and eye movement no matter what so whether they are happy, sad, or pissed, it's hard to tell. This has a lot of potential but it needs work.
