Also, i'm glad we got to see Tenochtitlan animated a bit, crossing my fingers we'll see palace gardens and such in it in S2. Lastly, I said this before, but I REALLY wanna see the "design language guide" that got mentioned on the ep4 podcasat that Mona and Joey(?) made to help the artists have a reference for each culture's art motifs; if that could ever be publicly released or bits of it posted on twitter, I think that'd be really neat to see.
With all that said, I wanna focus on elements OTHER then the Mesoamerican influences, as I feel sort of bad that that's almost all I've talked about when that's only part of the show itself.
I really don't feel equipped to judge or comment on this since I know jack shit about it or really audio/music stuff, but Zyanya, Quetzalcoatl, Tezcatlipoca and Mictecacihuatl have consistently great voices, though I think Xanastaku (who is also best girl, SBanon >>119998113
you were right) is really standout: It was said in the episode 6 podcast that her voice always has an air of deliberation to it, but it also has a subtle edge of menance to it that I think really suits her character
Also for Izel, the delivery of lines really improved over the course of the show, even just going from episode 1 to 2/3 was a big step up, good job Izelanon >>119998162 >>119998075 >>119995500
, The "It's suicide" "I know" response you did in episode 7 especially was amazing delivery for a really well written, multi-layered line (props to the writing team there too), and is probably still one of my favorite moments in the show, excluding Mesoamerican nerd stuff
The music was also quite good throughout, downright great at a few points. The extended/varient theme that played when the fake Nelli bit happens in episode 7 particularly was a banger, same for the Maya rap. I do hope full lyrics get released at some point for all the tracks, the fact that they use indigenous languages is really cool too
Okay NOW i'm taking a nap
