*And weekly first AND review crew pick!? wow, I'd only ever dreamed of getting those awards! THANKS :D

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)

Holy(Excuse my language)..... fuck.

That was amazing! Beautifull!
I loved the artworks, and backgrounds it was all amazing!

Though i have one, well... maybe one and a half thing to say about the whole thing.

first of all, i think the Voice on the best friend, was too different, the recording sounded like it was
recorded in a different place, using different software to edit.

Second, the motion flow was amazing, though i got the idea, that sometime's the proportions aren't really correct. it just ac-cured to me.

To close this off, let me say, this is not criticism, well... maybe but constructive criticism(if thats how you say it). I do certainly hope to see some more of this, maybe some action? you have a bit of potential here to start an online series, if i may say so, i read the comments. and people found it heartwarming.

Who knows!

Good luck with future animations!
Love
The D

This was amazing, the things you noticing it after rewatching were the things that made the story like the tears left on his moms shirt showing he had his memories from his life after that (including his moms death) and was reliving that day

You get 5's all around for this one. I am a aspiring animator... I watched at least 11 animations tonight and this is by far my favorite one. I would love to see more like this. I am currently making a animation, my first one. Before now I have been making 3D scenes and models. But now I am inspired to finally make an animation. Keep it up please.
