Great piece of work
It's an awesome piece of work. I love the story it's funny and it has a great twist in the end. I wouldn't worry too much about some lower quality animations here and there because of the rush, I didn't even notice them. The style was consistent and fit the story nicely. Sure you had some detailed backgrounds at the start while you had some white screens later on, but that didn't really matter since all attention was drawn to the story and the funny characters anyway.
A very nice animation. Smooth and awesome drawing. Sometimes the animation looked a bit crippled because of the combination of frame by frame and tweening that YungJazz already mentioned, but the detail of the backgrounds and the muscular structure of the characters is really well done, which would of course make it a real lot of work to make everything frame by frame.
What I couldn't really relate to were the voices. Using animal taunts instead of human voices while subtitling it with English removed the binding of the watcher with the characters. I believe that if you'd dub this with voices that would speak English and which would be manipulated so that they would fit the characters, it would create a stronger connection with the one watching the movie.
This was just awesome. I'm kinda getting bored of all those mario pixel flash movies showing up all the time but this one had a different twist, was lengthy, had lots of humor, great music and sounds and a solid story.
Quite a best in class if you ask me.
Damn man, you sure put some effort into that. It looks awesome and is a lot more dynamic than the Anime cartoons I know. Don't have any remarks on improvement. Truely a masterpiece.
one word... Awesome!
Great skills, now use them right..
You've got great drawing and animation skills, its too bad you wasted it on a FFspoof with no storyline. The animation and drawings are great, I'd really like to see an animation with a good storyline or some good humor from your hands.
You seem to be quite the talented animator. The drawings were great. The nice thing about this animation is that you were able to create a quite dynamic anime movie which can be quite hard since it requires a lot of skilled drawing. So there's no problem with the animation and drawing skills, the music was very fitting aswel, but I think you should improve the story concept a little, it's too chaotic, there are like 5 things happening at the same time with a lot of switching between the scenes. It's hard to create a bond with characters that way it's all just a little quick. And offcourse you should look for voice actors, it would make the movie a lot more awesome then it allready is.
The drawings are nice, I guess you coloured them using photoshop or another photo edit program, and you've done some nice shading giving the backgrounds a watercolour feeling and the characters a more detailed colouring. The problem with the latter though, is that the movie becomes very statical because of the use of Jpeg instead of flash vectorial based graphics. It takes away the smoothness of transision and the ability to create dynamic movements.
I'd suggest you should try and create vector based flash graphics for the characters and keep going with the photoshop images for the backgrounds. The same style is used in allmost every anime series. The shading on the characters will be less (2 or 3 colours per item would be enough (highlight, normal and shadow)) but it creates a lot of smoothness in the movie and makes it more dynamic. You could really create some nice work with the drawing skills you just showed if you use them wisely.
Good luck with your future animations, I hope my comment can be of some use to you.
