Hobson and Choi - waZelda's notes

I'm making this my next series to catch up on. I'll be trying to read at least two chapters a day.

Chapter 1 and 2:

I love how digitally illiterate Hobson is, particularly with the realization that there are real people on the internet. To me, that's the funniest part so far, though #HobsonVsWolf is solid too.

Yeah, there's a degree of grim humour which might be a bit lost on the writte word there.

And may be a valid point about the dog, or at least, my pacing might be a bit off - I dimly recall there's about three chapters there which probably take place over the course of about five minutes, but take about twenty minutes to actually read.

Finished case one, so quick question: How long is case two? I'm assuming it is still ongoing and at least a few months from a conclusion. I like to read something ldaily rather than weekly, so I might catch up on another series on the site and come back to this one when case two is finished.

In an attempt to mix things up a bit, Case Two only ran until #44. The storyline beginning in #45 is still going, and will probably run into the 60s.

Oh, alright. Guess I'll be back tomorrow then.

Chapter 34-36:

I get the feeling Hobson will come to regret hiring people to do vandalism. I thought he was trying to stay clean. What's he like when he's not trying?

Jukepop isn't playing along today. Curses!

Chapter 37-38: I laughed so hard at

"... for when you need work NOW! No one's in to take your call at the moment."

Good stuff.

Hobson's swearing is actually really starting to bother me. I'm particularly annoyed when people use a normal expression, just replacing one word like at the end of chapter 38 with "enough shitting around".

Chapter 39-44:

I feel like the comedy aspect was lost somewhere along the way. I'm not too happy with this storyline over-all. Don't get me wrong, Hobson's past makes it interesting, but it didn't have much in terms of interesting scenes or new characters. Think of it like a decent cupcake, but with no topping.

Yeah, I hit a certain comedy/drama tone-clash in the second story. In the end I went all the way with the grimness then just decided to try and pull back to more jokes in subsequent stories.

Sorry the second case wasn't as good for you - thanks for reading though! All feedback appreciated. Do let me know what you think if you ever go back and check out the subsequent episodes.

I'm aware there's a bit of a grim swing in the second case, which is one reason it isn't as long - I did try to go back the other way in the subsequent storyline. Sorry you didn't like it as much, but thanks nonetheless for taking the time to share your thoughts - all feedback appreciated. Let me know what you think if you ever tackle the later chapters.
