It has potential for sure i recommend doing something to even out the audio nice story tho cool charecters too the main turn off is the audio for me

AdamTilford responds:

Appreciate it. This is also from 2013 and before I got a friend on board to handle the audio which is around the 4th episode. 1 and 2 were done during a rough time in my life and were essentially me just trying to work out of the funk. 3 is a middle ground, 4-6 are solid with pacing for the finale.

This is too good!

The lip-synch is horrendous, there's no sense of atmosphere or three dimensions, all of the colors feel too flat, the mechs are another in an increasingly-long line of Gundam-wannabes and look more like bubblegum forced inside a machine rather than an actual machine of war, and you try to throw too large a cast towards the viewer all at the same time. I don't know ANYONE by name, and that's partially due to the crap sound setup.

HOWEVER, I do like where the plot is going, and this is the first Newgrounds mech-themed series I've seen since I can remember.

Now this looks to be an amazing series.

not bad but a bit of recycled materials. animation was good, but the speach was low at times and the sfx were a bit loud.
pretty much anything mech, mecha, frame, wanser, armored core, exo-skeleton, mobile suit, etc, has been said, done, and replayed before.
but, this is the FIRST episode, so up coming and later ones should be improved.
it isn't bad, but it's a genre that's flooded, you just need to stand out of the crowd.
