I’ve said it before but I’d be happy to say it again.
I enjoyed the first chapter, but I won’t be reading the rest of the story. While it was cliché, I’m happy that episode included a non-ethnically customisable MC and that they stuck to her roots. But that’s pretty much all that’s going for the story at this point.
The directing seems lazy (nothing against spotlight), and considering episode has a team of directors at their disposal, it’s very lacklustre to other stories they’ve come out with themselves. (See Blood Lust and Love Life as examples. The directing was at least cinematic.) So for the first story they’ve had a non-customisable Asian MC, I’m saddened that they didn’t put the same effort into it that they did for others.
Also unlike other stories, it doesn’t include sexual assault right off the bat. (Such as kissing a mysterious stranger with no features in a dark dressing room.) There also isn’t anything to suggest that the author even intends to do so in the future of the story. So, props to them for that human decency!
I dunno, I think I’m just expecting more and more from episode, because if people from the community can create stories with fully integrated directing and overlays with a banging story to boot - all within 3 months for a contest (cough J.Miley cough) - then the company itself has basically no excuse. Especially if they have a whole year to write what I’m guessing is only 8 - 15 episodes.
