WARNING: This animation is 30 MINUTES LONG. Be prepared for this.

That said, it is my personal belief that it is worth it.

A lonely, childlike moon keeps a diary of his depression, boredom, and recurring nightmares. His daily realities seem to be based on dream logic: clouds with bovine personalities, teeth with eyes and mailmen who fly in balloons. He writes about his very few friends, an invisible person, a pack of wolves, and a boy who lives in space on a garbage pile, protecting the earth from debris. The moon mopes along his 'horrible as usual' orbit, as the invisible one suffers with his own surreal identity crisis while desperately trying to reach out to the moon. Moon Diary is 7 days through the eyes of this gentle sky rock.

Based on characters and comics by Erin Tanner with animation by Curtis Randolph and Charlie Daugherty; Moon Diary (2010) creates a world with a simple, bright surface on an enigmatic, dark and maze-like core.

If you want "pause" and "chapter select," this animation is also up on YouTube. Just search for "Moon Diary" and scroll past all the Sailor Moon garbage. :)

An amazing story

Beautifully abstract with wonderful characters that are very likable. The music and voices fit perfectly with the characters and art style of the whole thing. 10/10

It was really good.

But I wish there was a pause feature. :T I had to go do something in the middle of it and got back in time for the ending.

Amazing.

It is not often that one finds something like this on Newgrounds. I would go so far to say it is very rare, in fact. This is, quite possibly, one of the greatest animations I've seen on Newgrounds, simply for its quality, music, and of course, the wonderful story. I applaud you, KibitzCo, and can't wait to see your next work.
