This took me about 14 hours over a period of 2 days. I put in some shading and highlights to help the art and took some advice from many different people in the reviews of my last video.
Aeris - Autumn Stroble
Leo - Edwyn Tiong
Krug - Edwyn Tiong
Ternaldo - Nick Tiner
And the music:
Day of the Tentacle - Hotel Interiors Present
Baldur's Gate 2 (selected tracks)
Final Fantasy 8
Guilty Gear X
Max Payne 2

I like how you animated it!
Now, normally people would complain that you animated something without really asking the original creator about if you could do so or not. I personally am giving you the benefit of the doubt here so I'm reviewing it on that basis.
I liked how you had the scene setting music, as well as the choice of voices that you used for the respective characters. Aeris' voice in particular was how I would imagine her sounding in the case of a actual animation (Only suggestion I have is, make her a bit more expressive in tone), as well as Leo. The other two were ok but I had imagined them differently (not that I'm faulting you for it, you did good). The animation in particular was perfect, you had the right effects at the right time, and I couldn't think of a better way to go about it.
Finally... @ Gasthecar: You are a extremely immature person to make such a review.You do not seem to realise that here on newgrounds, there are people who would happily try to blam something just because it's based on a specific subject, just like some would always vote 5 and give 10/10 reviews for it.
The author of this flash is simply pointing out that the people who have nothing better to do than to complain that 'it's not original blah blah blah not VGcats blah blah blah' are not going to change the author's choice of animation nor belittle them in any way because they have seen that they are never going to change their views; They know no better. So, in hindsight, maybe you should try and think things through before you make a post that just marks you as very closeminded... otherwise someone might make another Dot Dot Dot, about you.
... With that said, MikeandTrey, I think that you should continue on this line of animation. You do it quite well, and I am wondering how else you'd animate other such web comics.
but don't get sued :C
This was a really good adaptation of a web comic I thoroughly enjoy. You got the animation down pretty well, you did well with the shading on the characters. The only thing to worry about though, make sure you thicken the outlines of the characters. If you'd notice in the comic, their outlines are very thick and dark, your's don't need to be as big as their's but you should at least make them thicker.
And what's almost as important as the animation is the audio. First off, I loved the way you utilized the background noise and the background music (but I'm sure you'd score some points if you used an Audio track from the Audio portal instead of nabbing it online somewhere else, you'll get much higher praise here).
Now as for the voices Leo is good on his voice, Krug's is perfect as well as Ternaldo's. But Aeris' voice, as you've been informed, is weak. It needs to have more emotion and be a little deeper, the way she sounds now she sounds as if she is the one that has the plague. Just make sure you have her make the voice have a little more emotion, be a little louder. Aeris isn't a quiet or docile character, she's an oftenly aggressive and hostile character with a lot of emtion, draw upon that and everything will be fine.
Close to perfection, but the voice thing and the thin outlines are small serperately but together result in a reduction of one point. Still, an excellent job, you can only go up from here pal.
Is this done with the permission of the creator of VG cats?
On another note, I feel the female VA lacks emotive ability.
