Only reason this is in the portal is because it was too big to fit in NG Alphas. The entire thing is basically static, mostly just moving drawings at the moment, but at least they are good drawings.

Song by Edgen.
Inspired by a few classic animes of my childhood and Frank Miller's way of drawing.



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Hey not bad.

I generally dislike trailers, but this was quite exceptional. The "teaser" lacked action, which can be captured by drawings alone, but that isn't necessary. The brilliant song from Edgen builds momentum and suspense, so now you just need to deliver.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

good preview

that was a great preview. tha graphics were very good, and the story sounds very interesting. should be even better in full

Sakeido responds:

Rated 5 / 5 stars


It might just be moving drawings, but it still kicks half of the other flash animation on here into submission. Good work.

Sakeido responds:

Alright, nice, my best review :D Thanks!


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars


The graphics are very good sadly I can't say the same about your animation. I do like this flash though. I say, add some Animation
Not just A tweening image going up, also The flash is rather slow
Just work on it abit, Your artwork is very well drawn.

Sakeido responds:

This teaser doesn't even meet my standards for animation.. in fact it represents what I dislike most about flash (overused tweens).. when I get a proper section 1 of this story, it will definitely not be so slow paced and static as this one


Rated 3 / 5 stars

yep, good drawings,

but that's all there is to say for it right now. The style is really beautiful, but there is hardly any movement. For one, you could throw in a higher framerate. Almost every new line, I had forgotten the last one while waiting for the new one to come. Quite boring. But the story seems promising, just like the rest. Just start the story and throw in a higher framerate and it should be fine.

Sakeido responds:

Thanks for the compliments.. the point of this little exercise was more just to develop a style for the story. Frame rate was actually 24fps.. but I had a lot to pack in dialogue wise, and with no voiceover, that makes for a lot of boring subtitles...
