The animation is awesome. Seriously. It's so hard to animate long monologues and have them ACT and not just be a talking statue. Everything looked super fluid, and even though this seemed more narrative-driven than anything, I could've turned the sound off and still enjoyed it.
The plot was decent. I thought the jokes were a little... goofy, but I think that's what you were going for. As a pilot, this definitely served the purpose of introducing the character and foreshadowing future conflict, so I bet you can pack in a lot more interesting stuff into the next episode. Looking forward to it!
