Yeah, the voice actress for Chick Frog isn't very good, though she's gotten a bit better than when she started, so there's some improvement. Most of the voices for this were recorded in 2014, aside from a few that were redone because i felt they could be better. I feel like everyone's gotten better at acting since then, but finding time for everyone to record is really hard, and the voices for episode 7 were recorded on the same day since we did have time and since it's a continuation, so unless I can find time to get all the lines completely redone before work on that is too far in, then the problems withe the voices currently probably won't be fixed. I'll try though, but like I said, it'll be hard to manage.
The censorship is something I knew would bug people, but there's a reason for it. It's pretty much the gimmick of this series, you were close with what you said. It's supposed to "feel" like a tv show, as if it were actually being shown on a fictional tv network. This is kinda explained in the series, but not really. The censors do come into play as something more than an annoyance in some episodes though. Plus, it leaves room for having uncensored versions for possible DVD releases. Which, ya know, probably isn't the best reason, but it IS a reason. But yeah, it is kinda unnecessary, but it's only a thing with this series. It's been a thing with this series since the beginning and it will continue being a thing, so hopefully that doesn't put you off too much.
Welp, I tried to make it a bit less confusing, but I guess it didn't entirely work. This is part 2 of a 3 part story, and it's really shit that I had to take so long of a break after starting a trilogy, but there really wasn't much important that happened in part 1, aside from the main cast getting into their current situations. The main plot with Alex being pissed off and wanting to get revenge has been slowly building since the first episode, but it only really began here. I feel like it'll kinda make more sense in the next episode, but idk, really the best thing to do would be watch the other episodes. Many times had I considered not finishing episode 6 again and instead doing a full series reboot, and maybe that would've been the better thing to do, but I already had so much of this done, and I really didn't want to take even longer to remake the first 5 episodes.
I'm not sure where exactly the animation could've felt stiff, but I'll assume it was in the scenes that were animated in 2014, or just where there wasn't enough movement. A big problem I have is not being able to come up with enough good poses, I feel like I've gotten better though, 'cause there's certainly quite a bit of animation in this where it's constant movement with new poses each time, and those bits were animated in the last few months.
Yeah, Kevin MacLeod music is a bit over-used at this point, but I had it and I felt most of it was fitting, so I just went with it. I also didn't have stable internet for a lot of the time I was working on this, so I couldn't really find better music choices. That's not really an excuse though 'cause I could've easily switched out the music later on, but i kinda didn't feel like searching for music, 'cause it always takes an unnecessarily long time. Ideally this series would have completely custom music, and maybe episode 7 could have that, or at least less-used royalty free songs.
Spending so much time on a single project is a really scary thing. The idea of it flopping and all the time spent being worthless is constantly going through my head, plus style and skill level is constantly changing throughout development, so there's always inconsistencies. I've spent a long time on projects in the past, and I'll probably be doing it in the future too, but I'm ready to take a break from long cartoons after this. As much as I love making long stuff, it's just so much more fun to make shorts because they can be done rather quickly, and I've got a ton of ideas i need to get out of my head.
I don't really understand how any of the problems you had with this would embarrass you. It's not like this is a completely professional production with people who know what they're doing all the time. This was started when I was still trying to figure stuff out, so it's full of problems and inconsistencies, but now I've learned a lot so I have a better understanding of what I'm actually doing and how to keep things consistent, so I SHOULD only get better from here. I will be trying my hardest to fix all the problems that can be fixed though. Episode 7 won't come out for a long time probably, but hopefully the wait for that will be worth it, and hopefully it'll be a lot better than this.
Thanks for the review!
