Well, that looks interesting. Can't decide what creature that eyeball belongs to. I'd say something like an elephant if it weren't for the red sclera.

Oh, that sounds cool.

But it bothers me that the 'crocodile' creature has eyelashes. If they're some sort of mish-mash kaiju creature, I would be very happy.

edit: Awe, it's a short?

This was so weird...

The animation style, the horror, and the Loch Ness monster?
Well I guess that was part of the show's gimmick. Going to stick with this though since it's only like 5-7 minutes each week.

Felt just like Yamishibai only with monsters instead of ghosts.

Episode 1

WTF did I just watch? There's a small Loch Ness monster and two guys trying to become Youtube sensations, but that does them no good because they get eaten by that monster. Well, that's an instant drop, but I think I'll put up with one more episode just because it's something that's hardly the usual.

I don't know if that was bad or an artistic statement. At first I thought it was rotoscoping, which is a technique that needs to be burned in fire and erased from the very fabric of the universe, but then it looked like someone was cutting out paper dolls. Well, at 7:mumble minutes, I'll watch a few more and see.

Like the others have said, this was a little weird - characters looked like literal cardboard cut outs moving...
Probably won't be sticking with this one, but thankfully, it is short.

Animation looked stiff but they did a good job with the suspense. It's not what I expected but I liked it.
