PostSubject: Death Note Abridged   Tue Aug 18, 2009 4:13 pm

Hi everyone! I am 1KidsEntertainment, creator of a Death Note Abridged Series.

I am not Team Dattebayo. We are two separate series, and should be treated as such. You'll find it easy to laugh (or not laugh) at both of our series, due to the fact our styles are completely different.

Currently we have 11 and a 12th one currently scripted and being recorded.

You can find our series at youtube.com/1KidsEntertainment
(Big surprise)

As with any abridged series, we start off pretty rocky, but we get better as we progress, in all areas... jokes, audio, video, editing, all of it gets better eventually.

Tell me what you think. Any criticism or feedback is nice, and helps me improve with scriptwriting and our voice actors with voiceacting and our editor... well, you get the idea.

Also, thanks to theabridgedseries.org for linking our videos on their site. We've gotten lots of subscribers and views out of you guys. You rock.

EDIT: Updated how many episodes we have. 11 is up

Glad to have you guys at 1kidsentertainment participating. I've heard a number of good things about you from Imphic's review show and Chicknwings podcast.

I've been trying to get around to watching y'all's series, but I've been a combination of voice actress hunting, college preparing and checking out various other abridgers. And stuff.

Sorry, I'm assuming there's more than one of you. Are you one person, or is there a team out there?

Either way, we're happy to have you on here.

Happy to be here!

1KidsEntertainment, although this sounds stupid, is just 1 person. I'm the guy who voices L, Ryuk, Watari, Rem, used to voice Light. I also do the scripting, and I was the editor for episodes 1-7. We post the episodes on my account rather than a group account mainly because I coordinate the whole thing, and I created it.

Yeh, check it out on your own time, they'll be there. Hopefully anyway.

Currently we have 10 episodes released, an 11th one halfway through the editing process, and a 12th one scripted.

Welcome aboard. The only criticism I have is that I think you're too hard on yourself when it comes to your voice acting (That goes for you too Truth!). I just caught up on all your episodes and enjoy them immensely. Very homered to have you with us.

Welcome!

Don't worry, I totally know the feeling of competing with Team Dat, Their fans need some manners sometimes don't they?

Hi, I'm Blade, tender of the Tutu On account here, which makes Princess Tutu Abridged, But I used to voice act in Death Note Abridged, the series which started on the same day as Team Dattebayo's. We were taken off youtube some times ago, but I know your pain with the "We are not team Dat, we do stuff differently." stuff. At one point we had an entire special about responding to comments which all ended with "You Guys Suck."

I hope you have better luck with that than we did. I'll be sure to check out the series, I'm always interested in watching abridgments of Death Note.

Thanks for the nice comments ^.^

And no, my voice acting for Light was terrible. Period. The others have since improved, but you can still tell that almost all of them are still me (With the possible exception of Ryuk due to the fact his voice is scratchy).

Yeah, Team Dat themselves told me about how technically they weren't the first Death Note Abridged. That's quite the coincidence!

I'd have to say I get about 6-7 comments a month about Team Dattebayo on my videos. However, only 2-3 of those are people who only watch my first video and judge it compared to Team Dat's whole series. I actually get a fair bit of comments about how my series is either equal to or better than TDB. I personally think that while our script isn't as funny (in my opinion), theirs isn't as close to the original series as ours. In the spectrum of
fandub <===> abridged <===> parody
I believe them to be closer to parody and myself closer to fandub.

But, hey, all isn't lost! Some guy named Zeix is making a "professional TeamFourStar quality" version of Death Note Abridged, and he has like 2.5x the amount of subscribers I do without even having a single episode out.

*sigh*

Not the first is a stretch, I think we posted our episode maybe 2 hours before they did.

Anyway, I think your first episode is pretty funny, although I haven't gotten into the rest of the series yet. (I watched the Redux, in case you were wondering.)

The first episode's script was horrible, so the redux didn't do much to help that. The only difference was audio quality, a new editor, better video quality, a new voice for Light Yagami (he took over after Episode 5, thank god. He is infinitely better than me)

I totally understand that. For me the biggy is my Episode 2 which is much too long. I really want to go back and re do it, But I haven't the time.

But it's really satisfying to go back and re do the editing and stuff. I did that for our opening after episode 4 and it feels so much better.

I did it for continuity's sake, since xJerry64x picked up the role of Light Yagami on the series, I figured we should redub the first 5 episodes with his voice. I actually didn't edit the redux, I was planning a redux and kirbamon, one of my subscribers, offered to help with the series. I took a look at his Gintama abridged and saw how well edited it was, and asked him if he wanted to do the editing. I gave him the episode 1 redux as a project for him to prove his skills in lip flapping, etc.

Yeah. That's probably a good thing for continuity. So there was a new editor for episode 1? I haven't really noticed much of a transition so far. But I'm not too picky, so It's probably just me. ^_^;

Episode 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 were edited by me

Episode 1 (redux), 8, 9, 10 were edited by kirbamon, who is also editing 11 as we speak.

Well, I finally got around to watching your series in earnest, 1Kids. I like it.

Let me just say, you don't have to worry about these "Team Four Star-esque" groups competing against you. If there's one thing that I've learned, its that big groups like these can't update because most of its members are involved in many other projects(the Lanipator Effect, I calls it) and that more often than not, it is a disappointment in the end. Big names doesn't mean big results.

As for TeamDat, I love their series, but after reading his blog, I've noticed a bit of a sore streak in Gmacza regarding other DeathNote Abridges. I think this streak is certainly justified, but as long as you're congenial to them I don't think you'll get a hate rant from them any time soon, even if you are a competitor.

As for fans, well...their fans. They come in all shapes and sizes, and some are more reasonable than others. But as they say in the military, "If you're not catching flak, then you're not over the target," so a little bit of hate mail from TeamDat diehards just means you're doing it right.

Actually TeamDat and I have a very good relationship. I have to thank Gmazca himself for supplying me with the great quality raw videos we have been using since episode 8. The thing on his LiveJournal (I think that's prolly where you were reading) all happened because Zeix, (the one in charge of the TFS quality DNTAS) probably approached them the wrong way. I'm still a fan of their series myself, love their videos. I just think that not only can I put a spin on Death Note myself, but I am also having an immensely good time doing so.

Yeah, Zeix knows that the more people he involves, the longer it will take to make. Look at ProjectYGO. It's been over 3 months since their first episode, and nothing. (This isn't an abridged, but similiar)

Glad you liked the series, sir ^.^

Ah, I see. Thanks for clearing that up. I certainly didn't mean any disrespect to Gmacza. In fact, I thought his rant was justified, as I've had a few brushes with that type of situation in the past. Me and SilverZeke56 had a scare a few months ago when we thought Kaiserneko was doing a Zoids Abridged, hehe.

In any event, to get this thread back on topic, 1KidsEntertainment's DeathNote Abridged is one I'm recommending.

Gmazca's a cool dude. ^.^

And wait, what? I never thought you were showing disrespect to him. Where'd you get that? o.O

Yeah, that guy was just very disrespectful towards us and our series and I thought it was uncalled for. He presented himself with a sort of arrogance I found distasteful...my reaction may have been to passionate and overblown though, I can admit that.

As far as us and 1Kids we have a pretty good relationship. I've watched all the episodes and the quality has improved tremendously (like us from episode 1 to 13). The more you do this kind of thing the better you get...that's just a proven fact. My first episode could be cut by like 4 minutes lol.

We show respect to those who bother to show it to us, that includes 1Kids and many other abridgers out there. And we're perfectly willing to coincide with however many Death Note series that want to throw their hats into the ring.

Good luck with the rest of your series 1Kids. We'll be watching.

This was a greatly appreciated comment. ^.^
I had no idea you guys had watched my series. But that's definitely a nice thing to know, and made me feel all warm inside. No homo.

I am very sorry to hear you guys decided to quit. Originally I thought y'all were joking, but I talked to Rissa on Skype and she told me why. I can only hope that one day you guys come back and make more. I think our comedy stylings were far enough apart that they could coexist peacefully, even though our source material was the same.

I totally understand, however, why you quit... and I don't want you guys to think I'm pressuring you to come back if you yourselves don't want to.

On the other hand... I had a particular joke in mind for a couple episodes in the future that would require the voice acting of you guys, if you were willing. Private message me if you are interested, I wouldn't wanna spoil it for everyone on the forum. =P
