Rated 5 / 5 stars

This cartoon was simply fantastic. It's one of the best pieces that you have ever worked on and you are a great artist. It's not just that the animation is fantastic, it's just that it has such a wonderful story. It kind of makes you wonder what it must be like to be Death. I liked how you commented on Death moving onto non-human animals. That must be even harder for him.

The voicework was absolutely fantastic as well. While it was only one voice, it truly seemed like someone you would hear on an audio taping of some Edgar Allan Poe work. You can't help but fall in love with this girl. I'm eager to see what happens when the rest of this comes out. I hope it's as good as this!

moral of the story.
if you respect death as much as you appreciate life, you pass on much more peacefully.
i love stories that are vivid that teach values.

Oh my, I knew Death was lonely, but I never thought he would do a thing about it...
It's good to see him finally make a friend.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

As expeted, true quality and good come out of a perfect blend of light and darkness. Not enough light to blind you, but not enough darkness to take away your sight. Just enough so you can see to the core of the matter and find true good.
