I can't even begin to describe the degree of awesomness in this animation. It's not just the quality of animation,which is professional by all levels (as well as music and voicing) but the intensity and at the same time subtility of the plot. It's more than just a tale of friendship and adventure, it's a story of legacy, of mystery, and of life in many ways. Like those creatures they're unknowingly chopping the legs off, or using bird bait to fly with an eagle, or looking in the mirror to see their true selves. This movie is just full of symbolism and awesomeness. I liked all aspects of it, and the handshake at the end that really shakes the world is so damn POWERFUL. Just amazing. I have contributed, and I'll be looking forward to what comes of this, though I can't imagine the series actually being better than this short. It's a masterpiece on all levels. Oh, and then there's the fact that not a single thing is actually said in the whole film. You don't need language to understand it. Great work!

a brilliant well thought out piece, there was humor, a good plot and a uniqueness that's hard to recreate.

One of the things i liked the most was the fact there was NO dialogue, yet the story was told fine through exaggerated facial expressions etc. (this is one of those things that make this piece unique and fresh)

Keep up the good work!

And because of those two adventurers, sifilis spread :D <= This was a stupid joke.

I loved this animation. It was splendid. I expected a treasure, but instead, they found something more valuable. Simply put-it's beautiful.

The art style.
The backgrounds.
The music.
The characters.
The execution.
That one blue-haired guy with a thong doing the crane (Who is he, I've seen him before...)
You don't need me to tell you that you got everything right.
