It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Overall, I liked it! The story wasn't anything particularly special, but I think they were getting set up for better stuff. Raunchier than I expected, significantly so in the case of Kissy. Some nice animation and particularly backgrounds. Nothing totally blew me away though.

Overall: B-
