fr! when i’m reading stories with fight scenes, it’s so frustrating to see the lack of animations that are available (punch, shove, kick_crotch, slap). and the fact that there isn’t actually a dodging/blocking animation, so all the writers can only use the standup_neutral animation for their characters to “dodge” attacks. which is a pretty slow animation.
and speaking of slow animations, the current punch animation kinda annoys me, it’s not realistic at all. it’s quite slow, and it doesn’t really look like it will actually do damage. the ink version was a lot better imo, but idk if episode updates any animations. to be fair, it could be pretty bad for authors who’ve already animated fight scenes using the current timing of the animations.
dodging animations should also be necessary, like the dodge_rear in the ink version. or like ducking from punches.
i’ve also REALLY wanted a kicking animations for a while. like roundhouse kicks, or at least push kicks (front kicks). but i can see how that could be pretty hard to animate!
