i'm divided on what to think of this demo.
love the track and great work on the effects/content but the aesthetics of the models and scenes don't quite fit the music for me.
i get the references to the whole japanese virtual idol thing and that does make some sense in the demo but the poses and animations just feel alien to the rest: overly sexualized and not really fitting jpop dancing tropes.

Great production. Like a videoclip. Loved the ripple effect. And the spinning on the escalator brought back an instant memory.

didn't clic with the concept, but this is certainly well executed overall

So weird that it becomes fun and entertaining.
I love the dance pool.

this is a bit confusing. why has this a different title than the compo release?
Very nice! I was there live to see this great prod.

i kinda got what you were trying to go for, but it never got there
I should have enjoyed this, especially the music. I didn't. So piggie.

Still convinced Sigveseb is some kind of musical genius, though. :)

Some of the 3d scenes seemed a bit unpolished, but only in comparison to the excellent 2d scenes. The amount of content was impressive, lots of little touches and good direction, the music and sync are great, and I'm sitting here going wtf did I just experience, which is *exactly* what I want from demos.

Not to my taste: sexualized poses, massive payload, and lacking in narrative. I did find the music interesting.

pretty, and that skilled music! this product makes me happy.

ps: how were the poses sexualized? luna: did not see nipples & the like, not nude imo
dancers dipped feet into floor sometimes. And sometimes visuals felt kinda sluggish compared to the energy in the track.

but I enjoyed the vast majority of the demo very much, welcome back and have fun on your way to claim the throne :)

not a fan of that particular music genre, but love the solid look :)

Is this a 20th-birthday homage to candytron?

well, this was kindof a hot mess with not much clicking for me at least, but at least your rendering tech has been improving :)

Rendering is nice at times (some of the envmapping is awful, though; normals not quite right or something?). The character animation isn't really my cup of tea. Overall it feels a bit long for what it's doing, and less non-stop-fun than Ninjadev's usual style. :-)

Too much »nudity« for my taste. Perhaps it's more a problem of the poses, especially in the part from 1:10 – 1:36. But I like the rap-part.

Yes you are!

it starts kinda meh, but it just keeps getting better and better until it fully takes off with the rap part and the textured bodies part
