my opinion this is the best show ever

me encanta

I love the artwork and the VAs. Very good!

I think the voice acting and sound design are pretty well done I just really don't like how it was "animated". The art was well drawn but I think that having the drawings float around is kind of boring. It felt more like I was watching a very well drawn storyboard that was yet to be animated. I understand that animation is really time-consuming and maybe you didn't have the budget or resources to pull off a fully animated 11 minute cartoon and I'm all for taking shortcuts when you're able to but this just didn't click with me.

I feel like you guys have a talented cast and a fun enough concept that you could make something really special and I see a lot of that potential in this, but as it sits now I just really don't enjoy it.

NickSenny responds:

Thanks man! It’s hard since we only have a crew of 4 people (plus the VAs). And I do some of the voice acting (in this case Mario and many of the background characters), editing of the voice actors lines, the sound design, and the “animation” or editing; all in one month. It’s a lot for one person’s plate. Then we have the one artist, and then the composer; we’re all working on the same scenes simultaneously. Our lead oversees the three of us and writes the script.

None of us are too well-versed in animation, it will be difficult especially if our artist has a very distinct style none of us could match. Also, we’re working on a limited budget and couldn’t afford an animator.

We tried to do the best we could with what we have to provide an interesting and intriguing story. Due to the lack of animation, I try to make up for it in dynamic sound design.

I'm confused. I thought Mario and Luigi were Italian. Were they faking their accents this entire time?

NickSenny responds:

Let’s-a only-a talk-a like-a dis okay, paisano! That-a won’t get-a grating!
