ZTV News segments don't really appeal to me that much. On top of Caxx's voice acting sounding a bit on the amateur side—look who's talking, right? HAH—Zone-Tan really IS a bit of a bitch, and for a while I couldn't really get into the whole "news" thing because of that.
That said, I loved this one immensely—just as much as I loved ZTV News Episode 2—and because of this episode, I've found myself sort of warming up to the purple-haired mascot.
About this episode:
This episode's appeal, at least for me, was mostly in the guest segment—just like in episode 2. The difference being, Zone-Tan completely made the scene in this one.
Caxx's voice, I realize, is a perfect fit for Zone-Tan, and this episode highlights that with neon-tentacle-green, fluorescent ink.
Her banter with BennettTheSage in this episode, is by far the best Zone-Tan/Narrator interaction thus far.
Her voice acting with Harry was pretty solid too, and really fleshed out a lot of Zone-Tan's character. It was so good, that I actually found myself thinking, "Awww. She's conscious about being a drawing."
<NOTE: I do NOT mean aware. I mean conscious in the way that you'd be conscious of a really big pimple when around your crush.>
All this time, I saw Zone as this, as the TV-Tropers would say, Karma Houdini—emotionally untouchable. This episode really erased that notion from my mind, and now I'm looking forward to more of these in the future.
