Title says it all, I believe. Fanart is very wai! (Finally I have a series with sexy girls in it people will draw for me! My cunning plan has yielded ripe fruit of conquest. Muwahaha.)
I was re-reading Slayers Demiurge the other day while slacking off at work (blargh.. I feel bad about that). You know, it’s really not that good. It has its MOMENTS, but overall there are some key problems I spotted. Penny shifts wildly in the middle of the series; even when I was writing it I knew she wasn’t working initially, and I had to change her. I’m not sure the transition was smooth enough. Her relationship to Zoamel starts out as cheap comedy and also roughly transitions. Roy Balderdash loses all the badass cool he had in episode one; he doesn’t get it back until near the end, and doesn’t seem to serve much purpose. Finally, oh dear GOD episode 6 (the one in Sailoon) was awful — preachy as hell, repetitive, and the plot was a tangled web of coincidence and mayhem complete with a Lina who acted largely out of character…
I won’t say I HATE the series. There’s a lot of good there, like I said. But I remember why I rarely re-read my stuff now. I won’t even look at some of my Ranma stuff again, it’s just too embarassing.
Mind you, for the record, I also re-read Sailor Nothing, and found fewer ‘ick’ points in it. I don’t know why that one clicked more.
