Greetings! Finally, it's here, the conclusion to this series, before anything. This isn't a Mandness Day submission, because I don't want it to seem that I waited for that day to submit it, I just couldn't finish it due to various reasons too boring to list them here, still, it's done!

I want to thank everybody who has supported me in the making of this series, friends, VA's, music artists, Newgrounds itself and you, the viewer, hope you enjoyed this series as much as I did making it!

Don't forget to check the extra's for a little bit of extra animation!

Thanks again and sorry for the awful delay! (this thing was supposed to be submitted months ago). Enjoy!

I swear I almost cried at the end. This is truly one of the best flash ever made. I thank Xionico for this epicness. (who knows, maybe the next new series that's coming up is about Enid's story.)

I wanna keep typing stuff on how epic this is but words just ain't cutting it.

Obviously you've put a lot of work into this series and I appreciate that. But unfortunately I don't see this movie (and the series) as positively as many others here. The thing that made the original Madness series so good, besides the ultraviolence, was (a) it's creativity, uniqueness and style, and (b) the fact that it didn't take itself too seriously. For (a), you've sort of copied the Madness style but overlayed it with standard cartoon action. It almost looks like you are using Krinkels' style simply as a way of avoiding having to draw faces and legs.

For (b)...you seem to take this too seriously, considering what it is. Unfortunately, like much of the stuff on newgrounds it's not exactly great art, and the cheesy dialog doesn't help ("necrotic field", etc) - it seems kind of adolescent to me. The animation is mostly well done, but to my eyes, looks kind of strange - an awkward mix of Madness and conventional.

I'm not surprised that you have so many fans, since it has a video game feel and kids like that, but I think that it is definitely not comparable to Madness, Bunnykill (also minimalistic), or even many of the stick-fighting vids that you see here. For a good Madness-inspired movie that successfully does something different, check out Madness Heist.

For future movies, start by tightening up the dialog (or go "Madness" and get rid of it). Get rid of the spelling mistakes and made-up words ("dilerent one"?).

Xionico responds:

Well, yeah, you hit the nail on many things.

This series didn't even start as a series at all, as it was just a submission for a Madness Day's competition, but couldn't finish it in one episode so I dragged it to a second one and so on. For some reason, after the "main act" ended, it had gained a lot of popularity so I decided to whip a 3rd one, and then the same thing happened, but stuff began getting more serious and blah blah. Aka, it snowballed, hard.

I like animating battles, I won't lie on that, and yes, Madness Heist is awesome, but to each their own, I like to think I separated this enough from the original madness series, but yes, this is the last Madness-themed flash I will make (unless I whip out a small one for this upcoming madness day), even if the follow-up series is made, it won't be in this style.

As for the dialog, english isn't my main language, so I'm bound to make mistakes, I should have people check it, but by the time I'm near finishing it, I'm too fed up with everything and just want to finish it, that's my bad.

Thanks for the honest review, Seeya!
