I almost thought you were done with the series, great upgrade!
this is a good pardry lol
Your animation quality has really improved! I was really used to the text to speech voices you used in your earlier animations, but these new voice actors are all great! They really give this animation much more personality and credibility, all while retaining the same Pepper Steak charm. The subtle and dirty humor, the attention to detail, it's all there! I'm so glad to see Pepper back in action.
If you want to further improve your videos in the future, perhaps you could add more sound effects and background music to them. There were a few parts of this animation where sound effects could've been added, like the doors at the starting line opening, and good ol' running footsteps as Pepper and Glue-stick dramatically race to the finish line. As for music, Newgrounds has a huge audio portal with lots of music you can use (though contacting the authors may be required first). You might find something that works better than the Apple stock music!
Either way, I'm always looking forward to the next Pepper Steak, or whatever you have planned next!
Thanks again for the amazing review, and also the suggestions, I will be looking into the audio portal for sure!
I was so focused on getting the voice acting right that I completely forgot the sound effects.
Your animation is very good. I can't think of a single fault...
