I liked it, it was funny and if you have watched the series you can see the close resemblance to it from this flash, very well done and great for a laugh

I like your animation style/art as well.

Nice concept and the vector graphics weren't too bad. I like it. :)

Liked your take on it.

Animation was decent, audio quality was a little low. I've seen better, I've seen worse. Divide by zero joke is priceless. You could use a little ambience in the start, it feels a bit too quiet in that first few seconds as if there was no audio.

Piss on your fyi though, that's like saying you can't comment on the performance of the president if you've never been president. We can tell you what we like, what we don't like, and what, to us personally we feel would make it better. Being right or wrong on the other hand is a completely different topic. None-animators still might have a good suggestion you may not have thought of. Less you think you're perfect, then you're just retarded.

Protroll though, I appauld. If you don't care about the reviews and feel most of them will be useless, why bother telling us?

People willingly vote to put presidents in place.
This animation was created and published by the will of one man (me, BoobMarley). No one has forced it upon you, and its creation was not the will of a people. Someone made a much better analogy a few reviews ago about being a food critic. Go read it and take some pointers from him.

This little flash animation thingy that I posted to the internet is not perfect, and I am not perfect. But I don't have to be perfect to recognize shit opinions and unhelpful reviews when I see them. And I'll let you know as much because I care about defending something I put more effort into than most of you will ever live to. If that's an imperfection, so be it. Perfect or not, at least I can say that I always try, and that I act on how I feel. Again, much more than the likes of you will ever live to do.

There have only been a couple useful suggestions left on this animation. I have responded to them warmly, and have taken their advice to heart.
Most however (and I don't know how many goddamn times I'm going to have to say this, can't you fuckers just read a few pages back on the reviews to see that you're not posting anything new, jesus fucking christ...), are just comments telling me that this was funny, or that I'm a fag or a dick. Or some kind of dick-fag hybrid.

Anyways, cutting to the chase here, I give a fuck about people's opinions. But if it's inarticulate, unfounded (or worse yet, founded in ignorance or jealousy), or flat-out effortless, it doesn't merit my respect or consideration.
I hope this has brought you to a little better understanding.

That being said - I agree about the need for some ambiance at the beginning. I know people have probably been cranking their speakers up during the first three seconds, cursing my name and absolutely mashing the 0 button. Can't be helped though, I'll work out something better in my next flash. But thanks.
I appreciate you taking the time to watch this and leave a review.

The joke was funny especially in the context it was used. Fullmetal Arithmathist... Never would have thought of it myself... So many people are pissed off from the fyi message, but i don't really care. Its funny how pissed they get! Keep up the good work.

BoobMarley responds:

Yeah, sure are a lot of babies here on Newgrounds. Glad this one flash has been able to bring them all together in one place.
Thanks for watching, I appreciate the review.

Pretty good.

For only four days of Flash experience, the animations were pretty good. The pacing could have been just a bit quicker, though.

On the whole rating argument thing, I think that it's true that if you couldn't do any better, it's slightly hypocritical to criticize him for the animation quality. However, at the same time, the whole reason reviews exist is to provide constructive criticism for the author so that the next time he makes an animation, he can produce one of a better quality. I say, why argue over it at all? BoobMarley, just listen to the legitimate criticism to help you do better next time, and reviewers, if you didn't like the animation, tell him exactly what you didn't like about it and how he could improve it rather than simply stating "it sucked".

There, i've pitched my rant to society.

BoobMarley responds:

If the whole reason reviews exist is to provide constructive criticism... the mods have had a whole pile of non-relevant shit to delete on their hands. Starting from day one.

Reviews exist for some people to type "lol", and for jealous and or angry 14 year olds to type "fucking fag. this is gay, you are gay. it's gay that you write mean things back to people that write unintelligent, inflammatory remarks with no critical value to you or incoming viewers. fag".

Sorry you had to hear the truth from a guy who calls himself BoobMarley.
