Eloy episode one is still under production. And as for progress well…its a story of passage really. See very recently the head animator had to give me a slap in the face of sorts. Since the beginning I’ve asked a few unreasonable things from the staff. Making OC’s, and dividing up scenes without consulting them. I realized he was right. This has been a dream of mine for a while now. To produce a funny entertaining web series others can enjoy. Now that that dream is finally about to flower I’m making the mistake of getting way to far ahead of myself. I want this to be exactly what I envision but that’s not going to happen any time soon. Not with our limited resources and non nonexistent budget.
I really need to come to grips with the fact that this isn’t going to be exactly what I want it to be. At least not yet. Not without cash anyway. This was proven when I talked to a skilled model editor who could make very impressive OC’s. They charge apparently. He/She said simple edits would run as low as $30-$50. I know that may seem like chump change to most of you. But given the fact I have rent to pay as well as bills and an artist commission for the Ravian comic. I’m not able to pay JACK SHIT for any other projects. But they also said that there are a lot of hobbyists who would do minor edits for free so I guess hope isn’t totally lost in that area. Unless I can find someone who can do simple edits with PMX (hair color change, body swap outs, etc.) there won’t be any OC’s to use here other then the one Eloy model seen in the introduction video. Regardless of the wake up call things are still progressing. Slowly but surely.
In other news. Since some of my voice actors are procrastinating I’ve decided to start another abridged series to keep the ones who still don’t have roles occupied until some come along. I wanted to abridge something that no one has else has picked up yet so I looked to last seasons anime lineup. Nobunagun was the one I enjoyed the most so I figured why the fuck not. I was planing on reviewing it but due to my apartment hunting endeavor I never had the time to do ANY reviews. So an abridged parody is the next best thing for me to try. You can expect to see the first episode on my youtube account around the end of the month or the beginning of May.

Okay Eloy episode one is underway and already we’re running into some slight irritation. For one I was planing on having Ichigo Kurosaki make an appearance in the first episode but I realized we couldn’t find a decent Ichigo model with moving facile features. So sadly Ichigo won’t be making an appearance until we find the right kind of MMD model for him. So we were forced to replace him with someone else. Not telling you who though. No spoilers!
Aside from models we’re already also dealing with the horrors of procrastinating voice actors. Some just have other obligations which I’m not about to poke at and give them shit for. There not getting paid for this so I’m definitely going to count my blessings. And it’s REALLY weird how 60% of the voice actors I’ve recruited are female. Do men just not enjoy voice acting? Are dudes just to into the art of construction and auto repair to want to sit at a stand and record voice for animation? I dunno, give me some theories.
But regardless of setback or irritations I do have some good news. I recruited a very talented MMD animator who’s good with combat animation. So currently we only have 2 animators but as you can see there both pretty damn experienced. Still we need some more to divide the work load up. Each episode ranges 3 – 5 minutes in length. And neither of them feel like doing more then 1 or 2. So one more skilled person would definitely be welcome. If you wish to try and apply as an animator send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Aside from Eloy a flooding of pages from the Ravian Webcomic well be making its way here. Once we put some finishing touches in pages 3 – 30 well be posted. Expect them (hopefully) by the end of the month or early May.

Hello everyone. Here with the first update of the new month of April. Kind of irradiated right now as I write this because while we did manage to complete the introduction video to Eloy, I just found out that I gave the wrong person credit for playing the main character.
I already posted it on youtube so I can’t really go back and change it. This makes me furious with myself for several reasons. Not only because the voice actor worked hard on these lines and it is of course unfair to give a different person credit for them. But because I made a mistake like this so early on in the project with the fucken introduction video of all things!! It’s like moving into an apartment and the next week realizing you didn’t pay the application fee or something. I don’t fucken know it’s just a real dick head thing of me to do.
Anyways it was VAintraining who plays Eloy, not Xane Kudo. Give him lots of praise.
Well hello there everyone. Here with an update for the 28th of March. Been busy furnishing and decorating my new apartment which sadly means I haven’t really been able to do much in the way of projects. But I do however have some news that the Eloy MMD project is nearing completion. It all depends on the animator but if I was to guess I think it should be done around next week. Here’s some screenshots of the work in progress.
As you can see Saber and BGS well finally make there appearance in the next and final peace of the video.

Finally! All of the voice work for the introduction video to the MMD parody is done. I think all of the voice actors for their work. Of course some I think more than others. Finding voice actors for this as well as waiting for them to finish their lines was starting to get very annoying. Come the actual parody I hope they don’t take this long. For eight simple lines about a week is as long as my patients will last. I guess I’ll have to make the guidelines for the voice actors very clear when I recruit in mass numbers. The voice actors I have now very in dedication. Some take only a few days while others take several weeks to a month. Hopefully once they see how good the parody is they’ll become more dedicated and in turn work little faster. The finished video should be published the week after next.
So due to the fact I was recently evicted from my current living arrangement because of an argument with there piece of shit management, I’ve been forced to dedicate a large portion of my time to finding a new place to live. That is correct, I’ve been certified homeless for the past two weeks. But recently due to a little thing called SSI benefits I found a low income studio apartment in Downtown Spokane. While its low-cost traits won’t impress me any bitches it fits my personal needs quite well. Low-rent and includes heating and WI-FI all for little over $300 a month. I fucking love being autistic!
But sadly it’s because of this, as well as the various problems finding voice actors and all of the other annoyances in my life, that I will not be producing my third and final anime review for last season “Kill la Kill”. A true shame because it was really one of the rather more…’interesting’ anime’s of last season. How can you not love an anime about Japanese high school girls using there clothing as weaponry!? Not only is it a unique premise it’s fucking HOT!
That being said, I might review it if circumstances allow as this is a really cool anime and there are some things that I really want to poke fun at. Mako’s gittyness being only one of many. But as it stands right now a Kill la Kill review is highly improbable. And this doesn’t mean I’ve given up on anime reviewing in general, this is just a setback.
And as for the MMD Parody. There are still no updates their. Still racking my brain trying to find voice actors for the remaining two female roles. It really irritates me that after over a month and a half of posting, recruiting and scouting no two women have stepped forward with a decent enough mic. But what can you do? I haven’t given up and I plan to finish this video as well as hundreds of other videos in the future using MMD.
