(note, by "serious" I mean I was serious about the animation, not that it's supposed to be serious, jeez)

This is my first serious flash animation.
I did all the voices, made all the sound effects (except the censor bleep of course), did all the art and animation, and wrote and preformed the credits song.

It took a while, especially since I chose to redraw the mouths over and over thousands of times instead of just making a few mouth shapes.

Overall it took me a ton of hours, I'm exhausted and rather proud of it.
Please let me know what you think :)

Constructive criticism is appreciated :)

Daily first place? :D THANKS EVERYONE :D

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Nice improvements

This animation was very funny, and well written. I always try to think of something for the animator to improve on when I make a review. I know I'm really a nit picker, but in your next video try adding a little more detail to your animation. Otherwise great work!

Pretty spiff...

This being your first serious project, you did a pretty good job.

I enjoyed the simplistic style employed here, really bringing out the "Kawaii" factor of KawaiiPirahna, and it helped add to the silliness of the rest of the piece. The gags were nicely done, written and timed well, each with great build-up and pay-off, particularly the whole "I took my scooter" bit. The little 'naut saying "I'm so silly" while standing next to a battered and beaten alien kills me every time. Voices were done well, and I like the focus brought to the little "Space-Scooter" song.

About the only thing I can say I didn't care for was the sketchy execution of the animation. It all looks very doodley and hastily done. I'm sure you put a lot of work into it, and I'm definitely not trying to diminish that, but I definitely wouldn't mind seeing another version of this after you've got some more experience under your belt, can smoothly draws your settings and characters, keep things to-scale and all that other pro-artsy whatsit.

Again, though, for your first serious project, this was pretty good, and I personally found it pretty funny. Looking forward to seeing more stuff like it in the future!
