This is genuinely the weirdest piece of Kirby media, I've ever seen.
You may notice that my enjoyment of is very high while everything else is fairly low, that's just because I find it really funny, like in an irony level.

I don't wanna bash it too much, it's a pilot and all...but no dialogue and Dedede has a gun it's so silly.

Why is the original Tiff's design so weird? Like I dunno....

Kinda cool that Dark Matter is here though.

Honestly I'd really recommend this just because of how weird it is, like I genuinely sorta love this lmao.

There are no reviews for this lovely piece of art, so I thought I'd write one. :I

Story (2, just because it's better than Mars of Destruction):
There isn't much of a story here.

This might be one of the weirdest things I've ever watched. Honestly, at times it feels less like a pilot for a 100 episode anime and more like a middle school students' 3D modeling project. Though, it does have some points of charm.

Story, uh... It doesn't really have one.

The art is a very mixed bag. The 3D animation looks terrible, just absolutely horrendous, it makes RatBoyGenius look like Da Vinci. However, the 2D animation is actually really nice, comparable to the actual show.

Sound isn't good. The music is fine enough, but the stock sound effects are laughably bad.

Obviously, with no story, any character is highly ...
