**UPDATE 02/25/2011 -- Episode 2 is almost ready to roll! There is still a lot I want to do before I officially launch it here on Newgrounds though, thanks for being patient and I hope it's worth the wait! I can only promise you this -- The animation is ten times better, and I think the "style" is coming together really well as that's the downfall of this first episode, I hadn't developed my own 'anime' style. Anyway, see you for episode 2!****

**Front Page! Yay! At least my hard work was worth something, as it seems 80% of newgrounds hates it, which I'm still a little flabbergasted, one person went as far as to say it's the "worst thing they'd ever seen" wow. There is a TON of art, a TON of hand drawn animation, and plenty of beautiful scenes in this flash that far surpass anything I've done before. I can sleep at night knowing I did my best and I'll take everything I've learned from this project and continue on with Episode 2, so to all that saw the beauty, thank you! To everyone with constructive criticism, thank you! To everyone that didn't call me a "fag", thank you. And to everyone that enjoyed, and favorited, THANK YOU! Many have watched my animations grow from the shambles and broken half drawn messes they were to now and can appreciate how far I've come. ****

Join Sherbert and Pokes as they fight their way through the Ellifor Grand Tournament and face the challenges that await them on their fateful beginnings into a adventurous journey..

Enjoy!

Dude...I can't really give this a good score...

It's just...It's pretty much a generic anime storyline, and how did it go from a martial arts tournament to some water god water collecting, to some minotaurish thing wanting beast snacks?
It doesn't make sense and in my opinion the artwork wasn't very good, and it didn't run very smoothly.
I have no idea why this was put on the front page, it's just going to get the attention of trolls and more serious critics...I'm being nice giving you a 4...Many others might not be as nice...My final decision is 4 stars and a vote of 1...

no no no no no

this looks like a complete rip off for real, the animation was ok at best and the voice acting was horrid. maybe something original would be better,

Rip off of DBZ and Gurren Lagann

Sure, your animation was alright, but still needs more work.

But it looks like you've gotten this off of Gurren Lagann and Dragon Ball Z. You need to make something more "creative" besides tracing parts of episodes on an anime show.

You should try it sometime.

Eh.

I can see that you put a lot of time and effort into this.
But considering the entire plot/fight scenes and whatnot were completely stolen, I can't give this a higher score.
Get some proper voice actors next time, by the way. The ones in this animation sounded like shit.

No problem

Well for me, it is a tired storyline, but whats wrong with that? Nearly everything fantasy orientated consists of heroes, villans, save the world plot
Anyone who thinks diffrent is a moron, thats always the basic plotline, just they always change the odd few things so even though its the same, its still diffrent.
However, several things, as i assume this is anime based with the facial shapes and all that jazz, in terms of speaking, well as you know, its only really the mouths with the eyes that move, slightly maybe shimmering or widening upwards in shock and so forth to represent the expressions. The animation was smooth, but a little messy, so you may need to work on that. The sound, well....the music could be a little louder, and the voicework could be done a little better, say, if someones going to be doing a screaming and shouting, it would be better if they kept distance from the mic as when that minotaur like creature attacked, he'd shout out and there'd be alot of interference in the mic of the reverb and stuff so like, ouch kinda
If ye need help with voicework feel free to ask and i'll be glad to offer my lovely english voice 8D
But eitherway, episode two will be better then thsi i suspect, you just need to take care a little bit with details, work on the body proportions as it may just of been me but, the people seemed overly thin XD in terms of their bone structure.
So as it is, it'll look good if you just work hard and i look forward to the second episode.
