Pretty solid animation. I definitely enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next episode. That said, I'll throw a little constructive criticism out there as well, pretty much entirely on the sound design and voice acting end.
Keiichi's voice tends to sound kind of forced throughout most dialogue. Doesn't feel like a natural conversation whenever he's talking. The best way I can put it is that the voice acting itself is good out of context, but the feeling of it doesn't always compliment the conversation its in. Dea's voice being robotic makes sense, though, given her personality (or lack thereof).
The other thing is the sounds are very dry. It sounds like people talking into a studio microphone instead of people talking in a room. In a room, there would be some ambient noise, reverb on the voices, maybe even some light EQ depending on the environment. It could be worth working in some of those sound design factors to make everything come across as more natural. It's okay right now, but very sterile, which is not how real life sounds.
Even if these tips aren't immediately helpful for this project, they'll be good to keep in mind in general. In any case, nice job overall. I'm looking forward to seeing some more of this!
This is my second time watching this, and I must say, this is amazing. It seemed like a comedy throughout, but then at the very end the twist just sent chills down my spine. I love it!
Haha! This reminds me of Chowder, but this was a lot more fun to watch :D
Children's Story Gone Wrong?
I was just thinking "Wow, this is just like a children's story." Then weird stuff started happening... Nice. haha I'm not sure what else to say about this. It was certainly entertaining. I'll give it that.
That's a nice everything you've got there. It would be a sssssssshame if ssssssomething happened to it...
That was funny, especially batman singing Les Mis music at the end! Nice job!
I just listened to this three times in a row, added it to my favorites, and nearly died of laughter. That was hysterical. The super dramatic voice and music in conjunction with all of those misspellings and typos made this into what I can only refer to as "uber lulz." Amazing work! 5/5
Well, I had absolutely no idea what was going on, and the animation felt chunky to me. Perhaps if you added some sound effects and dialog, it would flow more naturally. This just jumped into some odd snowball fight or something with no explanation or anything.
On a more positive note, your artwork was pretty good.
There is no other way to describe this series but "perfect." This series really sets the standard for flash animation (stick or otherwise). In fact, this series was executed better than a lot of stuff that is aired on TV or in theaters. Character development was done superbly, and I don't think there is any way to possibly improve this series. I look forward to future episodes. I know they will be amazing!
I love Boomer's insane smile as he's forcing his way through the zombies. It looks like he's psycho -- so sick!
