Ill be damned if thats our real future. sadly, the way things are today, it just might be. very, very moving. good job. verry good job. it makes me think of the ghetto thugs of our society and how small a part we alll play. that man, whatever his name is, was directly influencing the other girl. just like how the one was influencing the man. a very riveting and emotional movie, and a good soundtrack as well, it fits the futuristic vibe. great job sir. i wish i could shake your hand, its good you are making us all think like we are.

the video was.. well, read just about every other comment, it deserves it. its clear a lot of time and care was put into making it.

but i didnt like just how much it shoved the message around that successfull and/or good looking people are all mindless drones that want to fuck all day. they arent (not anymore then any other group is their own negative stereotype anyway). there is a reason why being "them" is a goal a lot of people strive for.

After watching this I am...I'm not sure.

Amazing animation, the color contrasts and detail between the two cities made a statement that words take too long to express and lose some of the meaning along the way.
The music choice was expertly made. They set the mood, as always, and were not once out of place.
Character design was fitting for the style and setting.
Voice-acting was better than some of the anime shows I watch.
Story...sad, and makes me better appreciate that which I've already got.

Final conclusion: If I didn't know any better, I'd say ya'll are paid professionals.

CAUTION, SPOILERS

Questions:
Did you draw inspiration for some of these parts from the movies 'The Island' and 'The Matrix? It seemed like it a bit.
I take it that bit with him leaping into the hologram was part of a dream of him seeing what was before he went under sort of like the man being hanged will see those he (or she) may have loved before he/she dies?
In regards to those who are in the artificial bodies, are they like, really really old people that found away to leech off of others, or do they not realize what's really going on?

Lastly, how long did it take ya'll to make this, and are you considering making another in the future?

It's been a long, long time since something like this has graced newgrounds. Words can barely describe the beauty of this film. It is truly a work of art, containing both spectacular animation and an incredible storyline. It has a powerful message behind it and it is a true joy to watch. To be honest, I can't remember the last time something this great has appeared on newgrounds, if ever. I've given 10s to flash's before, but none has matched up to this.

This is simply an amazing work of art and I honestly could see it as a full length movie.
