Here's Chapt 1. As promised I will try to do an episode a month or so. The serious shader won out in the poll so I switched it to that.
**I know theres some de-sync with the lip synch- and honestly I dunno why thats happening since in the program it plays perfectly but on final render everything got messed up even though I tried it a couple different ways**
Special thanks to the VAs

This is a redux of the old shinobi noir series I made a while back. Originally when I was going to redo this I was going to make a lead up to this but then I decided to do it more like Final Fantasy 13, story wise and have the EVENT at the beginning with flashbacks and exposition along the way to understand the characters so they show themselves more through action than just verbal stuff.
It might have gotten dull with an origin story from the get go (although there will be one later (approx Chapter 5 or 6) Because there are some characters that don't come in until the 2nd 3rd ep and if I did the other way, they wouldn't come in until 5th or 6th ep. Also this is more a drama with action elements than something like naruto which has more action/comedy or something.
Synopsis: Amari and Ryu get sent on an assasination mission that doesn't turn out so well. Ryu and Old man Chiaki have a secret discussion that might be overheard.
Next ep will have some new chars and my fav char- Hibiki which was modeled after the Hibiki char from the last blade but has a totally different personality/motivation/history etc
