Wasn't really too new. Back when the show came out quite a few articles compared it to cock-fighting when for someone who hasn't heard is shocking but that's about it. The talking things also been joked about before. Arts styles a bit different, not entirely sure if that's just your particular style or if you were aiming to make it grittier? If you were aiming for that a lil more focus on the harm aspect would go a long way. If your going for shock value a bit more effort is needed these days. All n all an alright flash but not new.
