I noticed Red Mage lost 2004 points at one time, lol. I really didn't think this was that bad. I thought the animation was pretty good at times. Why is it called a "special edition"? You don't even seem to think it's very special yourself. I liked the cartoonish gags.
I will admit that the drawings with the people themselves isn't that good. It was at least watchable. I know your other stuff is infinitely better. It's nice to see a series gets better. I still wouldn't recommend it.
