The animation is great and the robot is interesting, liking life and freedom, I hope no one gets that punishment to be trapped at work forever oh wait its already happening in everyday life

I liked the whole story, and the animation is smooth, and the artwork is amazing, despite the 360p graphics setting. I only have one problem, in the end, the robot sacrificed his arm for his freedom, correct? There was a perfectly good robot arm sticking out of the junk pile, that was shone multiple times as I clearly witnessed...so why doesn't the robot repair himself and just take that arm and just use it as his? I'm sorry, this may seem like some tiny nit-picking, but it was so painfully obvious and it made the main character look so stupid. It kind of ruined the ending for me, as I kept on yelling "Just take the freaking arm!". Doh well, it is still a masterpiece, and I still enjoyed it, 4.5/5.

Powerful story. Minimalist graphics didn't get in the way of the story, but were done well, and the lighting, I felt, played a major part in that feeling of "being trapped."

I'd like to see a sequel, though this stands well on its own. Great job; you made Robot Day a bit more enjoyable.

Aww, I was just getting so captured by the story!
I thought the robot gave his arm for freedom, but it seems it was for the other trashed robot... I think.
And that's a really nice plot!
