**Edit:Thanks for the frontpage and daily award**
**And i know how much this animation is similar to some animes and I've been explaining since the 2nd episode. This series is never about originality in the first place.
I will be working on alot more original stuffs in the future so just keep a lookout. :) **

Superhero Slayers Reel 4

In this episode the focus is back on the Fantastic Four and the X-men.
The Superheroes will continue their battle against the unknown enemies.

This episode is kind of a continuation of the previous episode, which is too long so i cut them off and put it as an individual episode, Hence the short length and the fast pace.
It took me really long, mostly because of school and outside work. I'm so glad its now finally completed.
Although it is another build-up episode, but it is shorter and more compact than the previous one.
And sorry for the lack of plot progress, the lack of originality and change of style, since this project started out for me to practice my animation skills and technique, the style is therefore visibly different in each episode.

Thanks all the VAs for lending their voices.
Thanks D-mac and Shard for working with me on this project again.

I'll probably be working on more original projects from now on, so I'm really not sure how will the future of this series goes.
Hope you enjoy watching!

So yugi-oh and naruto's son got pissed off

didn't really like the antagonist, he seemed more emo and nerdy than dark and brutal as i would have wanted a "superhero slayer" to be. I think the flash should have been longer, i believe if i had more time to see what was going on and get into it i might actually enjoy it but it cut off too soon. Also, i didnt really like how it was two different places with different characters just stick with one story. I'm sure i'd probably know more if i watched the other 3 SHS but this one wasnt enough to make me want to watch them.

The voice actor for the summoning ninja guy was awesome.

nice work

i give this full marks because of the ambition to take on such a huge story with plenty of action.

i've read a few reviews and to my mind this is a pop culture pastiche/homage, you're using elements and characters from heaps of different sources, so you can put whatever you like in it, if you like naruto hand gestures then go for it i say.

Pretty good

However, the anime influences in this hurts it more than it helps it. That's not to say it's so bad that it ruined it, it's actually really good, I think the writing for wolverine and cyclops was really bad, and even though the voices were good, it didn't sound like anything they would say in light of what they saw.

I read the info on this video you posted btw, and I got a couple of comments to make real quick :)

On the whole japanese culture bit, you gotta understand that it's not so much about the style of drawing, or even their low budget action scenes and aesthetic choices, but rather the culture they have when it comes to telling the story. I would absolutely stray away from trying to mimic what anime does with their story telling, because all their little "reaction" moments, and the "freeze frame shots" or "EH???" reactions are all recipes for failure. You had very little of it, but I did pick up a lot of hints that it's heavily influenced on it, then I saw what you were capable of in the same video. Stick with what you think the story should be like, and if you want to mimic or learn from the best animators or animations out there, you need to not look further than western animation. DC movies, marvel animations, and even avatar the last airbender. None of which are anime, but some people might even say it resembles it in style because of today's art styles. Check out "Under the Red Hood" if you haven't seen it already, it's quite easily the most amazing animated movie I've seen to this date, and i'm not trying to belittle great works of art like steamboy, spirited away or akira, but this movie is on a different level of story telling --- and in the end, what's more important than being able to engage the viewer with your full attention? pretty drawings or a great story?

I think this is amazing practice, and I wish I had the resources to get some VA's to record stuff for me so I could get animating stuff more often, you got a great opportunity here and I wouldn't give it up for the world.
