So, after many years (maybe) Hazbin Hotel has finally released its pilot episode on youtube.
Oh hey, youtube links seem to be working again.
It's like a kids' show in hell.
I understand that drawing decent perspective "shots" is time-consuming, but in such a strikingly flat style they are the ones that look the best. The voices are good, matching with the animation super well, but the mixing of the songs is a bit off.
I guess it can (or possibly already does) pick up some fiendish steam off teenagers and unironic adult fans of Spongebob and MLP.
I'm honestly excited and interested to know where we go from here!
...though the next episode might take a while...
Can't even comprehend the art style.
I was vaguely aware of this because the Discord nerds kept talking about how great it was going to be and whatnot for a while.
When I saw it came out and the Discord nerds talked about how great it actually was, I decided to give it a try.
I'm glad I did. It was really solid. I like the concept, I liked the humor, I liked the animation style (especially the animation style; that's incredibly detailed AND incredibly smooth and usually you seem to get one or the other), and the voices were excellent (Radio Demon is Best Demon).
I have no idea what the release schedule or plans or whatever of this show is but I went ahead and smashed that like and subscribe button so that I would be informed when more showed up.
