First Impressions: Sparrow's Hotel

Instant Summary: A hotel receptionist is an ex-assassin.

A return of 80's animation?! It's been eons since I saw those eyes with the size of dinner plates. I don't watch titles before the turn of millennium for a reason; the animation, especially the characters, looks fugly.

Sparrow's hotel has a shorter runtime than most 3-min shorts, with only about a minute of "story" each. It stays true to its premises, running jokes about Sayuri using her assassination skills in a regular, working class job. But the jokes can be really bad. Normally it won't be a big problem for shorts like these, but paired with the ancient style of animation, it's a recipe for disaster.

Outlook: Why are they going backwards?
