Is this a horror or a love story?

I started this in mid October for the NG halloween thing, but once I realized I was going to miss the deadline I started taking my time. This probably took me around 3 months in total as there was definitely an entire month worth of screwing around and playing XBox Live arcade... THAT MONTH WAS WORTH IT THOUGH.
I did all the animation and music and everything, BUT I had awesome help on the voice work from Caxx, which I couldn't have done without:

Sorry about the filesize, and thanks a bazillion again to Tom for raising my limit, and for the front page and everything else.

OKAY GUYS THANKS

lullabies r nice when i'm tired.

yes, maybe everything was nice.

but when you have smtn nice, you don't submit it; you'd better outright make it the most perfect fucking thing you can before you submit bc finished things r worthwhile - for you and the audience alike.

sure, maybe you don't sea it as a necessity - maybe you'd instead pass your time with better stories - but all the while your audience watches this and says smtn along the lines of "wow, this is nice. in 3 months...!? 5/10!" and, yes, i can understand the lack of criticism in an average viewer, but for me - if you'd be so kind as to treat me an equal of your audience - this submission proves you to be negligent; it proves your talent too. if you want me to think you've honestly done the best you can, i'll be upset...

heh, try to understand i'm being as motivational as i am an asshole (if your audience would so consider me for my unacceptable ratings&review)... i'm delighted to know you can animate well, but - three months or not - you can do better.

your storytelling, camera, voice, and visuals r fine with me. nonetheless! you should make your animation more dynamic and more fluid. the characters themselves were drawn realistically, but only their faces showed realistic movement. the running scene should have been in-my-face active, but you chose a more tranquil treadmill style, which also upset me :<

finally, your storyline - albeit nothing wrong with the short animation and, therefore, the limitations to develop a real story - could have at least been smtn new. i'm not a fan of cliche]]]]]]]]]]]]]]. it'd just be my dying wish to have you do smtn extravagant.

lolz r u drunk? I can barely figure out what what it is that displeases you. You think my run cycles and dialogue animation were under-expressive? I can't necessarily argue against that--if you isolate the parts and judge them out of context, anyways--but I stand by my aesthetic choices and feel that for the most part, for what the IDEA is, it makes aesthetic sense and everything is appropriately chosen.

Really though, as a truly great (in my opinion anyways) NG animator and artist spikevallentine often mentions, everything that you do as an animator or artist is really just practice for the next thing, which is in turn practice for the next thing, and so on. This was perhaps the best I could do with the skills I had at the time, but I agree with you that there areas that could be improved upon and I'll be minding those for my next animation.... which should be soon. I hope you'll get a chance to see it, as by the sounds of your review it might be more to your liking.

OK, massive spoilers first.

I've watched the video and it seemd that people were a bit confused about the movie's ending. I will explain it below. Yes, obviously spoilers.. Here's another one of those PRESS "PAGE DOWN" NOW kinda thing

SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, I don't deny that I played some adult visual novels in my teenage days (and I do sometimes FOR STORY), and the classic setting of ANY tentacle monster rape game is that girl(s) WILL eventually LIKE being tentacle raped. Yes, EVERY SINGLE one has that setting.

I know it sounds gross. Hell, even when I think about it now, it kinda makes me sick 50% of the time, but you gotta know how crazy those Japanese game developers are.

SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All in all, it wasn't enjoyable as a story. I kinda knew the ending when the boy said tentacle monster already, but I liked the art style and VAs, so kudos for that.

You got points off from:
1) Obvious ending (for me anyway)
2) The ending itself (See for yourself)
3) Possibility that you could explain it more with higher movie age rating (Yes, it's really perverted thought, but there wasn't that much build up from getting raped and getting married)

There you go, 7/10. Keep up the good work.

upsetting.

Animation, Art, and Audio are great. but the ending kind of ruined for me. even though it came out to be a "Lived Happly ever after" situation, making light of such matters causes unfortunate implications that does not sit well with me.
I would like to see more of your work, however I would like for you to Please stay away from the subject of Sexual Assault. (Unless you wish to handle it in a more appropriate Manner)


redminus responds:

I can't tell you the number of times I've explained in these reviews that the point of the "joke" is to ridicule the tentacle sex genre itself, by highlighting its less savory tropes, making literally visible what is always heavily implied in those animations in order to show how absurd it really is (that the girl actually enjoys it, for example, is an extremely common theme). I'm sorry that you couldn't tell that we're actually more on the same page than off, but if you're not willing to do your research then you shouldn't be so eager to voice your premature conclusions either.
Further, this being a genre parody in the strictest sense, defining it as a work on "the subject of sexual assault" is your own projection and not a statement of mine. THANX FOR THE REST THO <3

Hmmm...

So... rape a hot chick and she'll fall in love with you? Is that what I should be getting out out of this?

I'd be disturbed as to what that implies about the author, except I'd say I was looking into the matter way too closely. I'd say that the ending is more or less derived from Japanese anime tropes, much like the rest of the movie. It's derivative, unoriginal - most things that you've seen before. If this hadn't been released as an internet flash, a medium with pretty low standards, this would be pretty unremarkable.

Now, if it was meant as a tribute or an homage to these tropes? Then it was a smashing success and it would miss the point to criticize lack of originality. I'm assuming that this is the case.

Art is excellent and animation is good, if a little unnatural. Again, my criticism is mainly that it's pretty unoriginal, but again, I'm sure the author could be more creative if that had been his focus.
