Lord of Vermillion #01 — Mutual Stabbing x12

July 13th, 2018

 

No wonder the MOBA version of this folded.

Impressions:

So, Lord of Vermillion, your opening hook has been three pairs mutually 'killing' each other in a row. What else do you have? To which it indignantly answers "I have, like, nine more of them!" You and I need to have a word on what "else" means, Lord of Vermillion. And then it spent the next 15 minutes sullenly following Billy and Bobby Everyteen as they bumble around while being harassed by loud noises and red mist. Also, a dream girl recites Shakespeare. All this leading up to the big climactic… speedlines.

Come on, guys. Your hook was kind of garbage to start even before you repeated it another dozen times, and then when the big climax of the episode came, it was all speedlines, stills, and immunity to being cut in half due to protagonist power. Do you really think you want to be spending another third of the episode (de)establishing the characters as just your normal teenagers and mincing around in hospital beds? Yeah, I get that it's easier on the budget to have to animate nothing more complicated than a girl floating around in the air, but that's no excuse.
