Love to see a good ol'-fashioned fight animation... it's a return to the good old days of NG, except with better sprites! Did you create all of the sprites yourself?
Thank you sir! :D! I didn't make any of those sprites, they're from their own official games respectively.
I did however make the background and logo's
Beautifully done. I love that Newgrounds has become a place where people can explore deeper themes and sentiment.
I only have one question... why did you choose not to give any of the characters eyes? Was it stylistic choice or is there a specific reason?
Thanks for the feedback!
I felt like not adding eyes was a stylistic choice. With them not having eyes, it brings more ambiguity to the characters, making their persona not set and stone. Sort of like, "Hey, this can happen to anyone" sort of deal.
A great show of the only asepct of Pokemon I ever found interesting. Though it was meant to be funny, it still represents evolution in a more real sense: the circle of life.
It makes you wonder if the trauma induced by a lightning shock could empower a creature as such as opposed to just killing it off. With the rapidly-changing world climate and deforestation of today, species will eventually need to adapt or otherwise go extinct. Who knows... maybe one day there WILL be organisms that harness the power of specific elements to survive.
Food for thought, and entertaining to watch.
Well, isn't someone self-righteous.
You advocate yourself as making legitimate social commentary and "addressing" problems, but are you really? Are you really changing anything in bitching about well-discussed and exhausted topics and then not really doing anything towards it?
Other animators might put links to sites for organizations that work to solve problems: awareness, charities-- animators who support particular arguments also support the people who make things happen and actually work to directly affect the mass population. You sure as hell don't.
And with the "maybe if more people were the same, maybe we could actually make some sort of progress in making things a little better..." Would it really be? Would a bunch of people vlogging about their problems to a relatively- small audience really solve anything? In any case, the world needs less bitches who're noting but talk and more people who actually do something. Don't think you're so much of an activist, buddy.
But don't get me wrong; I don't have a problem with your negativity-- it's good that we live in a world where one can express his/her frustrations. But don't act like you're really making a difference; like you're trying to "help people"-- you're not.
Why do you try so hard to downplay your highly-opinionated statements with light humor? All that cutesy stuff could be used backing up your brash claims.
At least you acknowledge that art is subjective... you do have to acknowledge that there isn't a right or wrong with art (necessarily).
I personally think there's nothing wrong with a healthy appreciation of nature and that it's an image of beauty many artists would want to capture with their own hands. It's not wasted time if they're really into it.
But I respect your opinion. Thanks for giving me something to ponder on.
This was brilliant. Really shows the ironies behind scientology and how the internet responds to it.
The most intelligent thing related to 4chan I've seen yet.
Nice and entertaining as always, though this one dead-ended more quickly and more noticably than the rest. Are these all improvised? I think you said in one of the earlier episodes they were.
And do you animate the intro fresh every time, or do you just copy and pace the scene or frames that contain the original?
It ends abruptly cause this episode ended up being 3 minutes long but it was too daunting so I split it into two separate parts. Yes, these are improvised, I have an idea of what I want to talk about but it can easily be derailed.
The intro has been the same one since episode 1.
The cabin looks like that from "Cabin in the Woods."
Glad you noticed! We love that movie so that was kind of our homage/reference to it.
Good lord, I love these characters. So original, they're each dichotomies in themselves, and I feel each plays on classic social archetypes.
The swearing's in character, the fanservice is for a reason; the little details create such vivid characters, even down to the bright colors and personalities. There is elegance in the short shorts mixed with the dress, the pencil mustache with the armor; the glasses with the cape. It's all so refreshingly original.
These are some of the coolest characters ever for being so brilliant, and for constantly being such statements on society.
The reason I like this series so much is because if you stick around long enough, you here some brilliant social commentary. On women, on celebrities, on relationships... it's simply brilliant, and the reason I watch these things.
Only thing: your commentary is placed in large blocks which take up a lot of time and start to become boring, as well as majorly distracting from the plot. Integrating commentary into the action, or at least adding action to the commentary, would make it a little easier to swallow.
And while your continued video game commentary is smart, it holds no purpose in character development, plot development, or even in supplementing humor: it grows old and leaves the viewer a little confused. A few jokes here and there, or an entire flash centered around it, would be more appropriate, I think.
That said, I love the social commentary, love the characters; love the amazing imagination and originality in it all. Well done.
