An interesting curiosity but doesn't work for me..., 13 September 2011
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

I was drawn to this series why its intriguing concept. While it is a nice idea and has some good points, it overall didn't work for me and I can sort of see why it was short lived. Starting with the redeeming values, the music was rousing, the concept was great, the villain was promising being well voiced for one and showing some hints of menace, I loved the chemistry of the three leads(Lua was my favourite) and the voice acting was on the whole solid. The animation quality was mixed, most of the characters are crisply drawn and Kong is wonderfully animated, but sometimes the colours could have done with a more ethereal quality and the backgrounds could've done with being more fluid. The pace is for my liking rather plodding with the odd bit of excitement and the writing has some wit but marred by some heavy-handed messaging and moments where it gets a little too childish. Most disappointing were the stories, most of the ideas were great, but execution was done in a predictable and unexciting fashion. In conclusion, interesting but unsuccessful. 5/10 Bethany Cox
