I have mixed feelings towards this.
Steve, Max, Omahdon, it's been some time since you submitted a cartoon here. Other than that, on with the review...
In terms of art and animation, while characters were decently drawn with some good shots, it felt rather generic. However, I like how you got Crossabre to help out since you aren't the best at those aspects. The setting is a nice change of pace from most of your stuff, but I think that you guys could use a bit of help in the diologue department as Sumova mentioned. As for the actual story, Even though it's the first episode; it could have been fleshed out a bit more. However, that's what interquels are for. Another thing that weakens this is the pacing, which felt too slow for something like this. You may want to remedy that as soon as possible if you do any more episodes. Then there is the sound; the music is good and Omahdon did a good job with the sound effects. On the other hand, the voice acting felt rather flat except for the screams. I know that D-Mac, Omahdon, and Tam Tu can do much better than what they did, but their voice deliveries were weakened by the diologue and the pacing issues that this cartoon has.
What I do like:
-Passable art quality
-Nice angle choices
-Good character designs so far
-Good sound effects and music
What I don't like:
-Sub-par voice acting
-Story could have been developed more, but that's what interquels are for.
Overall: As much as I'm for original and/or fresh content, the execution needs some work in order to become Top 50 material. Here's a seven out of ten from someone who liked Xin.
