Awesome! The blond dude's voice sounded a little like it had an echo, but otherwise it was great.

Looking forward to the next one.

Thanks man, yeah its tough getting all of the audio to sound the same to one another, just something that will get better with time with the voice actors.

Wow. What an introduction. You got me hanging on a cliff.

Voice recording could use a little refinement, but I liked the banter between the two guys; it was pretty well done and believable, though short-lived. The whole thing seems a bit short. It would have been better if we got to follow the protagonist around for a while to find a way to connect with him. All we know about him right now is that "business as usual" involves grabbing a coffee in the morning before class--or afterwards--and maybe a night out on the weekend. It's an intro, though, so it gets a pass. Hopefully the episodes to follow will be longer and more filled out.


ReklessCreati0n responds:

I absolutely feel the same way, after getting through the bulk of part 1, I realized, "People don't know these characters at all" I think that its just a flaw with doing Episode 1 in 3 parts. By the end of Episode 1 (part 3) I think there will be more of a sense of who the characters are.

Thank you for the constructive review I really appreciate them.

Hey dude nice work on the first part, sorry I have been so busy with the 60frame collab that I didn't have time to review the work in progress you sent me.
I found the animation engaging and intriguing especially that game "Arimaa" and the girl in the hoody. A few movements are weird when the guys are in the coffee shop but sometimes motion tweens can do very unpredictable things. All in all it is a great start and im waiting in suspense to see what happens next.
Keep up the great work

I like the style and quality!
There's room for improvements, but of course improvements come with time and trial.If you were to perfect this episode alone, that could take you a very long time, so I'm glad it was released now. You'll gradually improve over time.

I'm also aware that the quality of my voice acting isn't that good in this episode, but this was the first project I ever joined as a voice actor, but I've learned how to make better quality audio and remove noise properly. It'll be better in later episodes.
