This episode marks the conclusion of the Dr. Shroud series, “The Boy in the Box”. If you haven’t seen the first two episodes, you should probably do that at some point to fully understand the background. They can both be seen on Newgrounds:

“The Boy in the Box” as a whole series has revealed a lot of what comprises Dr. Shroud and his world. Looking to the future, I will not be producing these separate mini-series’, but rather a string of related one shot episodes that explore and unravel Dr. Shroud as he searches for his daughter and confronts the past. Currently I am at work on “Skeletons”, a 5 minute self-contained story which does that very thing.

Very good

With the previous episodes, despite them having a rather good storyline, I felt the graphics had let them down. This is not the case in this episode. The animation is much superior now, though the sound could do with some improvement in certain cases. 9/10

Importence?

You say this film concludes a three part series? As far as I know it didn't up the ante or answer any questions at all, leaving you with even more questions than before and an empty feeling inside. This really isn't the time to be moving onto other things, not when Shroud has a bitter vendetta against the (very poorly explained) box boy.

I think your animation and style are really something special, your talent truly speaks for itself but you must dedicate yourself to writing a story before you animate, otherwise you'll wind up with a "Brackenwood" on which, animation is entirely reliant.

I'll tell you what, I'm a semi-porfessional writer with a few novels and screenplays under my belt and I've always wanted to write a flash movie; if you would consider it, I could write a Shroud vignette for you, all I'd ask in return is a partial credit of the finished film.

Sincerely,
CHIKUNHED

hhhmm..

Im sorry great series and all but it took you 6 months to do that, I was expecting a little more, like a longer episode with a more indepth look at Dr.Shroud. Great series though but next time crank out the other episode a little faster.

" Dr. Shroud Re-Invents Himself - Again ! "

Superlative ! ! !

This production is going places.....great animation with a dramatic sense of style ! ! !

The music and sound are also fantastic....great stuff ! ! !

This episode really stands out in that it's not as ' campy ' as past episodes- a more serious direction.

I really enjoyed the heart thumping action and score ! ! !

Keep them coming ....looking forward to more ! ! !

Yeah, sorry about that...I am just really slow. Actually, this took about 5+ months, which is slightly more than normal. Thanks for the review!
