I put this sample up for a couple of reasons:
1) The divergent comments.
On Crunchyroll they lurch between horrified and dismissive:
That's 2 1/2 minutes I'll never get back. Badly animated and voice acting was only so so. It's supposed to be a funny parody but it just felt flat to me. ... I can see why they're comparing themselves to those shows...I can see multiple elements from all those anime seemingly copy and pasted in lol ... Bleh. I didn't find it entertaining or worth 2 minutes and 26 seconds of my time. ... etc.
On YouTube they are (marginally) better:
this was random and accurate in all the right ways. ... I feel like this could turn into a successful echi anime series ... Fuck this family guy channel show I will rather see the new spongebob ep and PAC man show then this shit ... and so on.
2) We are working to organize ADHD.
Last time we checked, the company paid sub-par wages and offered no health coverage. (Now that it's January and we've entered the Age of the Affordable Care Act, we'll see if this dynamic still holds.)
As is often the case, a number of employees are not thrilled with the money or working conditions, but hunker down with nose to the whirling stone because a lower-paying animation job is still preferable to no job at all.
Even so, if you are one of ADHD stalwart employees, give us a call. We're as interested as ever in bringing sunlight and roses into your lives. We'll do everything we can to see that you get a leg up in this industry of cartoons.
