      No. I fully expect it to be boring and generic in the worst way.

      He hates modern scam artist Hartman. He is fricking obsessed with early 2000's Hartman.

      A little better than Daftpina's cartoon

      Wow that is rough. Hilarious how the second draft added a kid and a token radical enby.

      Honestly it looks too competently made to be truly ridiculed ala Daftpina's Saturdays Off short. Mark has actual industry pros animating this.

    No i dont not think it will.
    I think visually it looks fine even if its derivative. The designs are bland but still overall fine.
    I think the issue is the premise. It's boring. I dont care about some dull introvert going to parties. Whats the hook? What will actually drive the plot. Its fine if its down to earth and simple but "life of a boring guy" is bound to be a boring show.
    I also dont have a ton of faith in Mark. Youtube reviewers (i.e. people who watch cartoons and repeat a plot summary into the microphone.) have this issue where they thing watching something is the same as writing it. Its like saying you have seen 100s of house before, so it would be easy to build one.

      every creative industry is built from nothing from very egotistical people designed to be ran and flourished in by those with great ego
      the entire secret to creative industry success is 'networking' which is an egotistical way to frame one's self from what is truly 'the act of using people's existing namesake and connections for your own gain and tricking them into friendship until they are dropped like spoiled meat when it becomes most convenient to do so'

        It's already animated.
        Comes out tomorrow and I'm incredibly ashamed of it. But I promised my followers it would be released.
        I had no idea what I was doing.
        I did have great help from some boarders and BG artist working for a low amount of money
        It's the animation and editing I did that's bad. It's 15 fricking mins too which was way too long for me to try and do. I don't know what the frick I was thinking.
        I don't even feel glad that I made it, tbh.

      just read a wikipedia article on some shit like Rocket Monkeys and make that into a 28 minute video and you will rake in that autismo adsense revenue from people looking for background noises. it also helps if you say half of your sentences really slow and repeat yourself a lot. save on brain calories by watching every episode and talking about each one individually without giving any sort of actual formulated opinion

    Judging by the fact that whenever there's a thread made about this, the only thing that ever happens is either
    >talking about Mark's shitty takes or bland content
    >simping over his wife
    >talking about how boring this looks
    >talking about how bad the leaked animatic was
    >talking about how the designs are derivative and amateurish
    I'd say no. I've never seen anybody here giving this any praise, and I don't think it's because he's a rantsona cartoon critic. There just is nothing notable about this and the only reason it will be seen in the first place is because he attached his name to it.

      I get it with Mark since he admitted he really likes slice-of-life shit. When he talked about Mitchells Vs. The Machines he brought up how he hated the action robot parts and wished it was just a grounded family story, which doesn't make a whole lot of since when it's an animated film.
      Honestly, I don't know why he just doesn't watch anime. There's a bunch of boring SOL slop to choose from. He's probably too much of a toonheaded autist to check out stuff too far from his comfort zone.

    As someone who likes slice of life stuff I definitely understand the appeal he's going for. Aside from the loner getting coerced into hitting up a club, I also seem to remember some leaks showing the mouse boy's naivety catches up with him since that's clearly not the setting for him. I like the idea. I want to like something about it but I guess I can't. I say this as someone who actually watches his videos. Not just the big ranking ones. He's one of the few cartoon youtubers I can actually tolerate to watch/listen to (when his editor isn't being annoying.)

    I guess it's something about the obvious FoP ripoff style (the hands) and Sonic style that makes it feel too generic to me. I do want to know how it goes though so I'll probably watch it when it comes out (and then end up skimming because I'm sure there's going to be obnoxious bits to skip.) Curious what the runtime is. I'm guessing he'll go for typical broadcast standards just because that's his experience watching.

    It suffers the same problem as any other ToonTuber attempting to get their own cartoon off the ground, way more focused on recreating their childhood than actually learning from it.

    the designs clash with the story he’s trying to tell. the dialogue is really bland. the designs, clashing aside, are just so lame and uncreative. hoping it fails hard but his audience will probably love it just because he made it.
