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.

I will work to improve, however all parts are meant to be understood just yet from just this animation alone. Thanks for the review.

It's the outlines...

But apparently that's my fault because I see rough edges around characters, so my CPU must not be "good".

Didn't find much wrong, other than the fact I was not really aware of what is going on, but that's most likely my fault as well. The voice acting was pretty nice though, favorite part I must say. And the music was pretty well matched to the situation, except the end part.

Thanks, yeah it has rough edges. Imported pics into flash and didn't use vectors.

the storyline made little sense, but still the animation was great, oh and fix her damn proportions when she runs, that was just wrong.

Her head and shoulders....and knees. First off, good job in making the legs not look like penises. xD! But! They are very....unproportionate. I'm not saying that a little meat looks bad, but to her figure and face, just looks like she has chubby legs, with a slim top...Scratch that, just went back to the first scene. I swear she doubled in size when she started running xD (Well, Maiko sounds like a ditz...Mmm, just wasn't expecting a voice from her xD!) Ah yes, the knees. Very important when running....As if you don't add it in, it just looks like the person is moving like a penguin. You know, waddlin? (though she's wearin white stockings, I guess you can't really do much about it...Or can you?) Anyway, on to the shoulders. They are flat and almost non-existent. It makes her movement and when she's on the ground, seem very awkward. I'm comparin the Maiko Fanservice and UMICHAN:maiko v2 with this.....I guess the art looks better in motion than V2, but her overall body looked better. And the example of what her shoulder would be for M-Fanservice. And finally, Her head....Oh her head. You made it too ovular, compared to the circular ones of the past. I'm not...Well, yeah, it looks pretty bad honestly. Her forehead is very....Screw it. Maiko Glamorous or Fan service's head figure looks loads better than the one used in this current one. But, yer improvin. And yer actually releasin animation So keep up the work, don't fall down on the art quality (xD!)) And good luck on the future.

It a lot easier to draw a static image than it is to animate one ><
I'll get it right eventually... or not... hopefully so.

Thanks for the review.
