If you like fantasy you'll like this.
This is a pretty good time, all things considered. For an series made for YouTube it has very good nice sets, costumes, and decent acting. It lacks some of the polish of a television show, but that comes with the territory. The show feels like a scratch on the surface. The writers clearly have big ideas about the world and lore of Ren, but simply lack the resources to bring it completely to life. The five short episodes cover a lot of ground. Unfortunately, this means that some emotional moments lose their value. We just don't have enough time with the characters to get fully invested and feel the weight of events. That being said, the series was enjoyable. If you enjoy this genre and have an hour to kill you can't go wrong with Ren. Hopefully, they will make another season and continue the story.
