Thank you for the reception Hiro the Dense 2's gotten! I'm honored for the feedback and love.
Just a fun bit of history:
The first one was largely based off of a post I found screenshotted from one of the chans. I had altered a lot of it myself, but a few of the gags and jokes were still adapted from there. Fun fact: the original actually had the 'Demon Lord' a sassy teenaged girl. Other parts of it included the protagonist just being reluctant / dodging the question, rather than being too dense to figure out what's going on. But I couldn't take credit for the gag of "DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT I AM!?" "Uh... Angry?" "YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT I'M ANGRY!"
However, the second one is otherwise totally my writing. All the gags + how to integrate them were my own design, so hearing that a lot of people thought the second one was even funnier than the first is a huge compliment to me. I was also able to learn a few new tricks: the vine animations for instance? Those are totally tweened, and I'm super proud of them.
The only thing I wish was that I could've extended the animation somehow to get 1 extra minute. Hitting the 10 minute mark would've seriously helped its standing on youtube, but I don't like padding my content unnecessarily.
I've been debating whether or not to make a third one. I do want to and I do have ideas, it's just they'd be bigger than what I've made so far. I also have other things I need to make sure I get done. It'll all depend on how this one fairs. (For the record I do have a script in its first draft, but it's like 14 pages long at the moment. Twice the length of the second.)
Originally I had planned to release Hiro 2 to Newgrounds the day I streamed a live viewing, but the streaming side of Youtube was down and broken that day. That entire thing was a mess, so instead I opted to just release it the same day as Youtube. I didn't want to delay it further, so that honestly was the best thing I could do.
Anyway, I'm finally off my vacation, so my webcomic should be back underway in a bit, and more art and the like should be coming soon. I have a lot of Patreon rewards to get caught up on.
