kind of messy really. although the more anime-ish angles are interesting to say the least.

also there's still fucking memes on it fucking hell

yeah i don't mind, i kind of expected a thread like this to be here already lol

those are some pretty drastic changes in terms of composition and choreography style, not so much animation though. story itself is kind of meh, but i can't really expect much from this.
i actually liked the race better than that first battle though. made more sense for mario. and what the fuck is up with those breaks? literally useless

also hey, no more comic sans. took him long enough lmao

Idk how much anime you watch but it seems Alvin is going the anime style route which makes sense because a lot of people that watch his stuff are probably pretty into anime so in that sense he's just appealing to his fanbase

And idk, I liked both the car race and the smash tournament. idk which I liked more tho, they both seem so different that it's hard for me to really compare them xD

and yeah while the general animation is the same it is brought out more thanks to the drastic camera angles and choreography so imo it is better animation for that reason alone. but i do agree the baseline animation is pretty much the same as it was, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. it's still very good animation.

i watch anime. the thing for breaks is that they have a clear purpose on tv (no seams between commercials). on the internet it's just le epic meme for the win.
i can live with that though.

honestly i kinda want these visuals to become more consistent, all the style clashes are really jarring. then again alvin probably wants to finish those before the earth explodes or something

also, not sure how i feel about that sprite being the default one for mecha sonic now. it fits more with the slightly darker tone here but idk. i don't like the sprite itself. oh well

Oh yeah I forgot to explain the rest of what I was thinking xD

I was gonna add that yeah the breaks are useful for when it's airing on tv, but on the internet it's pretty much pointless functionally. However, stylistically it's just something that anime watchers express familiarity with. So alvin is likely appealing to that train of thought bc in that sense breaks will help watchers get more into the animation.

And yeah I think he's still trying to figure out exactly just what he wants to do. honestly tho I didn't find it all that jarring but that might be because of my overall excitement for it being back lmfao

IIRC he didn't want to use the Mecha Sonic sprites originally but yeah the sprite itself does seem different. Idk if I like it or dislike it yet, I gotta see it animated some more I guess

the breaks aren't entirely pointless. say you gotta go do something but you don't feel like pausing because whatever is happening is so damn good, then a break happens then suddenly your like "ok nothings happening let me pause it then go do the thing"

It's 6K now lol

So what do you guys think about Alvin using Patreon to fund him creating SMBZ?

I think I am mostly for this practice because it allows animators to actually make money to create a series, however, I am worried that this will cause some animators to request money to view their animations and stuff.

i like the idea of patreon and etc. this shit takes time, there's people out there that want to throw money at the authors, why not?
it also makes people less dependent on having to stay on some shitty job just to survive.

I've also considered a patreon. but I don't think i'm popular enough.

plus, I have 0 time to do anything anymore.

but that's a discussion for another time.

I really enjoyed this episode. I like how he did changes from the original and I think overall, it was very entertaining. I loved the one punch man music too.

Yeah that is very true. Plus if you become good enough at it you can make a legit living from making sprite animations which for some us would be a dream come true.

Nigga you have how many fucking subs? lmfao

Also you could probably do a patreon for a sequel to your movie.

That's because he made a promise like 2 or 3 fuckin years ago. "Hey subscribe to my new channel and i'll make another episode thing for my series." guy goes from like, barely 100 subs to 800 and not a damn thing to be seen.

The worst part was he was the reason I started learning flash in the first place.

all he does now are shitty after effects videos that no one gives a shit about because they're shit.

This is off topic, so I put it in a spoiler.

BlueBlur66:
blueblur66 is a guy who had a somewhat popular original sprite series that I enjoyed as well as his 6000 other subscribers. he stopped at episode 2 and for like, 3 years never touched his account because he made an account for original content (which by the way is totally fine) but surprise, surprise, no one liked his original content and obviously that made him mad since he wanted to make money with it (had a website with prices for them to do certain job.) he wanted more subscribers.

so he goes to his old channel says "Hey, I'll continue this thing if you guys subscribe to my other account." so they did and he went from like, 77 to 700 - 800 subs. and yet, we still ain't got shit. it looked like he was actually gonna do it, but then he deleted his videos advertising his channel and we haven't gotten shit.

Probably because those 700 subscribers didn't give two shits about his original content.

those are the kind of people I really despise. They make selfish promises and don't keep them.

Yeah that seems to be the kind of thing that alvin (and other people) kind of throw to the wayside in terms of continuity. It's probably just something they do because it's what suits the situation at the time. I mean, that goes for all power ups. They're all supposed to activate as soon as you touch them.

the stars don't even have continuity in marios canon either, think about all the stars he grabbed in 64/galaxy1/2 mario should be invincible for life lmfao.

but seriously though I think what happens(in both games and alvins series) is that the stars do what the user requires them to do. in most mario games you poke it and your invincible, in 64 bowser steals them for their power meaning they have strength enhancing abilities as well. and in galaxy their color determines their effect as well(red for flight rainbow for invincibility and Speed boost)

and in luigi's mansion its revealed that mario just carries a star in his pocket(the 1 star you find was his)

Eh there's always some forms of inconsistencies between sprite series and their original universe content lol

Generally I am okay with them as long as they're not REALLY bad. Something like Sonic being able to turn into Super Sonic without using the Chaos Emeralds and without any proper explanation in the story would be a no-go for me
