From Homestuck, on my webcomic,

Obviously makes more sense if you are caught up on the whole story, but hope you enjoy anyway!

edit: Thanks to those who've watched it and left comments. The small file size is just the loader, the rest of the movie is about 50 MB, hosted elsewhere on NG. Tom is graciously helping me host this file for my site, and since it's already on here, I thought it would be cool to drop it in the portal.

If you're watching this and already read Homestuck, thanks for following. If you're new to it, hope you like it and will consider checking out the story. There are many animations of this sort, making much more sense in context.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

How can anyone rate this flash project any lower than 5 stars? The animation is great and it explains a lot, which is kind of abnormal for some parts of Homestuck. I mean I haven't seen a good argument for any of the low ratings. I guess I should actually post a review for this, though *u*
The animation is as smooth as all of the other animated pages of Homestuck. This, however is long in such a satisfying way. Each god tier design is really beautiful, though maybe more of the trolls would be nice. It looks like a huuuuuuuuge amount of work went into this! And then there's the suspense left by dog guy-whose-name-I-forgot as to what happened to the exiles afterwards, did WV die or just become left in horrid pain?
One complaint is the pencil-ish art. The contrast of that and the regular pixels is large, but it does look nice on it's own.
Bluh! I'm horrible at these review things <__>

This was an amazing flash Hussie and don't let anyone tell you different!
To the Blobking and other haters, you contradict yourself. "don't watch at all if you don't read the comic" huh? Then you go on to say that it doesn't make an impression on you. It should only do so if you understand the story. I could go on about all the haters, but I should probably head on into the review. The story, great. Nuff' said. The art was amazing and the change of style was obviously because different artists worked on it. I personally thought it worked fine. The music was the best in Homestuck so far, and I love how so many tunes are remixed! You saw the crash on three websites, Hussie! We fans believe in you!

I remember...long ago...that when the person who got it uploeded this on to NewGrounds,everyone watched it and NewGround's crashed for 5 hours because everyone was getting on the same thing! Thats how awsome this is and this is from MS PaintAdventures/Homestuck.

Well down with the art style and music. Had no idea what it was about, but the colors and sound gave it a unique look and feel.

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

...I've never heard of this....

What in the hell? I don't even....

Well, it seems like this has to do with some web comic I've never heard of until now. Judging from the absolute randomness of the animation I'm not so sure I want to find out.

To the author of this saying, "Obviously makes more sense if you are caught up on the whole story, but hope you enjoy anyway" is a bit of an understatement. You should have just said if you haven't read the webcomic don't even bother watching.It's your own fault. You told me to enjoy watching it but didn't even bother explaining jack to me so why should I bother to enjoy it or understanding it since you won't bother? Why even bother giving an honest review, since webcomic fanboys will completely drown this out.

Well, I can see this obviously took a lot of time to make so I'll give it an honest review.

This was a ridiculously long animation. I'm not sure what the heck was going on but it could obviously have been shortened or summarized. There were long stretches of nothing but flashing images. I'm going to be honest. I'm not going to like an animation just because it takes forever to watch. Remember less is more. I was literally bored stupid by then end. I can only watch streams of never ending colors for so long.

Next problem is the consistency. Again I don't know if the drastic changes in art style has something to with the webcomic but it's distracting. The Animation fails for the same reason. Everything kept moving and changing but just because you have everything moving doesn't mean I'm not going to see mistakes. The animation was shaky, inconsistent, and mostly excessive. You could easily have focused on making a few things bearable rather than the entire thing sloppy. Don't get me wrong it's still pretty good but the change in quality every 5 seconds was more annoying if it had all been subpar.

I give this whole contraption a 5, because it's all I could give it. The animations good enough for what you were trying to show....Oh wait I have no idea what that is. Well the music certainly fitted the pacing... Oh wait I have no idea what the plot needed pacing. Well its was colorful and was nice to look at for a while, except for the fact that it kept going on and on.

Bottom line. If you knew this wasn't going to make sense to the average viewer, just say so. I could have said nice art and turned it off halfway through, but I kept expecting something to happen for it to make some kind of lasting impression to me. The sad thing is the league of +10ers and fanboys hyped praises for this so when I go to watch it I'm expecting something. Something that would blow me away. Not something trite and intentionally convoluded.
