i really wanted to get hyped about this, but seriously, it just all looks like poor
80's animation recycling to me. I have seen the first 5 (i think) minutes and the trailers,
and i am still trying to figure out what the fuck happened. Where did the good 2D people go?
Nothing , from design, to story beats, to animation (mechanics or acting) makes me want to cheer for my runningthroughmyveins beloved 2D.
The designs are uninspired, and frankly amateurish.
So is the acting for animation, hitting eve-ry-sin-gle-ac-cent- in-the-line-read, going from an awkward meaningless pose to another, using the all too familiar "by the book" gestures to convey moods and feelings.
It seems like an ex girlfriend you see
again at some random party dressed up like a slut, getting trashed and making a fool of herself. You're hurt, somehow, but you want to take a couple of steps back and run away.
I just sincerely hope i am wrong and promise to say so here if i am.
Long live 2D, but please, as of now, not with that.
