I had a purple hoodie once. It was my high school's colors.

BehindtheCouch responds:

Cool, thanks for watching!

I can't help being a little bitter that this displaced my spot on the daily awards, but that's not why I disliked this animation.

The whole thing just feels too bland. The entire scenario unfolded so slowly I didn't get what the point of the animation was. The lack of background music and ambiance made the animation feel as if it was dragging on too long. The copy-pasted backgrounds were substandard even when compared with basic backgrounds. The lispy voice acting was a huge turnoff, and the animation as a whole felt like a very slow sitcom.

The one plus I'll give you is that the lip syncing is borderline immaculate.

BehindtheCouch responds:

Hey... You're the first person to tell me that the plot was weak. That's your opinion and I respect it. Most people have been telling me the animation itself isn't great but the plot was good. I'm only getting better from here that goes with animation and writing. I'm glad you at least liked some things about it. I've been working on this for quite a while, and some things won't change no matter how hard I try so I'm sorry my lisp turns you off.
