My two cents.
This is animated comedy done right. You have achieved something professionals have not done. Congratulations.
Thank you for saying what I've always thought in my head watching these kinds of shows. Very well executed.
Glad someone shares my experience when they watch generic superhero cartoons.
I dislike anime and all anime related things. But I really liked this. Being a composer myself, I know a lot about music; and you perfectly coordinated the music with the animation. It is beautiful to watch. And not only did you execute this perfect, you did so in complete reverse. I've watched this five times and am still trying to figure out the plot. Any animation that can hold my attention span for that long certainly deserves praise. Well done.
The graphics are poor, the music choice is off-putting, and the animation is choppy. But you know what? It's damn /fun/. And isn't that what games are all about? Having fun? In fact, I was actually somewhat disappointed that the game was short. That's why I'm not trashing this submission. The idea behind it wasn't bad. It was original and intriguing. It just wasn't presented in a particularly interesting way.
Just my personal opinion: perhaps you should consider getting someone better to do the graphics; find a really neat jazz, hip-hop, or whatever song on the audio portal, and give the game more depth (for example: 10 glasses instead of 5, aiming for customers sitting closer or further down, stuff like that)
The beginning of the song is massively discordant, and seems to flip from mood to mood, throwing in instruments randomly. The piano was disjunctive from the rest of the song, and the synth at the beginning was way too aggressive.
However, there is potential for a great instrumental in there. Break it up into 6 parts: intro, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, outro. Place the weird and odd noises (strings, cowbell?, reversed synth?) in the bridge. Keep a consistent beat throughout the song, maybe pausing every now and then to remove the hat and bass drum. Establish a kickass melody for the verses and melody and add a bass and you have a hit.
PS: I rated you a 5. Try to return the favor by listening to what I have to say.
It's way too easy to completely trash this "song" because it's a simple song about ice cream over a simple beat that got to the front page, so I'll try my hardest not to be prejudged or an ass while reviewing this "song". I'll start with the positive. The backbeat is actually good, and some of the lyrics are funny. That being said, the rest is subpar. No offense, but you're not "Weird Al", and most of the lyrics are ludicrous and fall far short of humorous, for a parody. The lyrics are delivered poorly and nasally at times, and the beatboxing was trashy. The music should have been blended along with your voice; it might have sounded better then. However, I give you 6 / 10 for making me chuckle.
I hope this isn't coming off as obnoxious or mean.
Well jesus christ it was freeflow you cant expect it to be all that great. And of course im not weird al.. this is just that Newgrounds humor for yah made by a teenager.
But as long as you chuckled, i am just fine.
