Here's to living for another year.

This was actually made waaay back when for the NATA 2012 open round. The theme was "discovering time travel".
I didn't have it finished in time and had to abandon it to move onto the following rounds, but now I FINALLY got around to finishing it once and for all! and since there was no more deadline, I decided to spend an extra month or two on it to give it a bit more polish.

This was the first time i'd tried drawing in an anime'esque' type style since i was about 9 haha, I was interested to see how it would work.

I also had to cut quite a few parts out of the final animation to meet the deadline at the time and never got around to putting them back in ha. So the pacing is a little faster than i'd like and some character backstory was left out, but now It's time to move on to other things ;p

Hope you like it anyway!

I wanted to upload this on new years eve but I had some problems with converting the file for NG.
So HUGE thanks to DuDuL for converting it for me! don't know what I would have done without your help ;)

You can also watch it on youtube! (remove the spaces)

'Tho the animation was pretty good (I especially loved the facial expressions) and the voices are one of the better ones I heard in quite some time, the characters seemed to hover in front of the settings/background(s), like they didn't really touch the ground they were walking on. The story was very good by the way, bonus points for that!

At first I was stunned by the beautiful animation. Then, I started to question the content. I little kid thinking he can "time travel" through time at a normal pace is kind of an old played-out joke, after all, and I thought that was the point of the animation. I hung with it until the end though, and that ending completely tied it all together. The fact that the other kids in the animation thought it was about what I thought it was about, and then it was revealed that (spoilers alert) the main kid was right all along was a fantastic touch. I absolutely loved this. If there's any room for improvement at all, I'd say it's in the timing of the animation. Some of the keys seemed a little too evenly spaced, making the human movements look way more fluid/constant than they would be. The artwork was beautiful and the story was beautiful, and I can't wait to see more from you! Thanks so much for sharing this animation!

Nice animation but the twist was a little cliche and boring. Left me with an anti-climactic feeling.
