Try to watch on a pretty good PC! Else it may run slowly for you.

Tried to adjust the quality so it'll load smoother

This is my first real attempt at an animation only flash; I normally stick to games when it comes to flash.
It was a pretty daunting task for me trying to finish this in time as I didn't start as early as I should have.

There's a button that returns you to the main menu in the bottom right corner of the screen as it is playing.

For those of you following along, or familiar with my submission last winter, UM: snowball Holiday, this takes place right after the end of that game.

Maiko is on her way home from her last snowball fight with Luma.

Not bad

For your first "real attempt" at animation in only Flash, I'd have to say you did a pretty good job. As others have noted, the characters body movements and especially mouth movements were a bit off. However, other details such as the snow falling I thought were done very well.

The voice seemed very quite compared to the other sound effects. It might do some good to make it a little louder.

The ninja style running scene was amusing, which I don't think it was supposed to be.... I'm not sure if this was intentional or not, but she looked overweight in that particular scene compared to the rest of the Flash.

One thing that particularly bugged me was how close together her eyes were in some parts. It looked like her was squished or something.

Overall, this was a fine animation. Your art was very pretty and I can appreciate the effort that goes into Flash such as this.

Thanks, so now.. enough people have mentioned her being fat during the running part for me to actually care ><

i'll tweak the things you mention later on. or maybe apply it to another project.

Wow,

Guess Maiko isn't just hot and sexy, looks like she can kick my ass too!
Liked the voices, i thought they fit the characters well. Fighting music rocked hard, and the robot butt kicking was awesome. I think the animation could be smoother, but I don't know anything about flash so I guess i don't know how hard it is. Artwork is still that lovable, cute roundness thing i love! You truly have a unique style all your own! The one part i didn't like was when she ran though the forest, didn't look natural but most everything else was great. Can't wait to see how you improve on the next one!
