Reviews and Comments

From TibbyH :

I could instead make some wise-crack as a way to avoid critiquing this filth, but I'm just too bummed. The fact something as toxic, unfunny, poorly drawn, and politically/socially concerning as this was deemed A-OK to be aired on TV is just pathetic and insulting. Not just to decent well-adjusted people of the world, but to artists. So many creative, interesting and charming cartoons could've been made with the money instead of this half-a**ed attempt to be an "adult comedy" and capture 90s kids nostalgia. Adult Party Cartoon is an insult to women, minorities, members of the LGBTQ+ community, good taste, and animators.

From ToonStar95 :

Especially knowing what we know now, this tale of the twisted life of Ren really says a lot about the workings and outlook of his creator.
