Love your take on the hazbin story!!!!! Really good and deeper philosophically than the original!
I would love to get more introspective towards the characters.
I just think it’s nice to explore different kinds of people who willingly or unwillingly committed sins, which showcases how bad the heaven and hell system is being implemented. Like it says that ‘you shall not kill’ , 'you shall not steal’ but what if the individual had to do those in defense or for the means of survival? Do they deserve to be punished for committing those?
I think it helps sell the idea when the characters are well written. Their reasoning and the way they reacted to committing those sins should be clear to the audience so that they can think for themselves if those characters truly deserve redemption. Because humans are very complicated, they do things out of love, spite, greed, etc. It would be nice to see the characters trying to justify those kinds actions, because it makes them more humans. They have flaws and ideologies that we might all relate to so in return we would probably might want to see them be forgiven or at least be given a second chance and it could also make us think about our choices down the line. I don’t know I just think that audiences should always have something to takeaway from a certain media, especially when it caters to adults.
That’s why I don’t sit well with the new Addict music video. Because I think the purpose is to show how sympathetic Angel is, and that he probably deserves to be redeemed because someone is being worse than him apparently. It would’ve been nice to show how sympathetic he is if only they just showed who is when he was alive and what brought him to make this choices that he ends up in hell. Because for all we know Angel probably did something so bad and vicious when he was alive that the treatment that Valentino is giving him are his just punishments. There’s really no takeaway from it in my opinion
