film/tv show rating: 6/10. Really great, until you get halfway through act 5. From there, it felt as though everything went downhill fast. I feel as though the climax of the entire story was reached with Cascade, and everything after it feels tacked on.
It’s as if the comic was supposed to end after act five. Everything else feels like a some sort of hastily made retcon that only serves to add filler until it reaches it’s end. Not to mention that the writing is just hideous at some points and I the word plays and phrasing all feel disjointed and out of place. I just do not like the style it is written in. It’s feels unclean, and too informal. It’s clear to me after the first few acts that Mr. Hussie is far, far better as an artist than a writer (that is if he even writes it anymore. There’s so many people that work on Homestuck, that it’s becoming confusing to deduced who did what and where).
I will give Mr. Hussie credit though. It is quite astounding the sheer legacy he has built with this webcomic and the amount of work and effort he’s put into it. I might give him flack for his unwieldy writings, and the fillers, but I also respect him for his diligentcy and talent. And by the way, I wasn’t kidding about the whole “better artist” thing. Ever see his real works? My god, that man has a an incredible gift.
…Whoa, I rambled again, didn’t I? Sorry about that. In short: Homestuck is filled with good things, but it’s also severely hampered with it’s exhaustive content and ridiculous writing style.
