Rated 3 / 5 stars

the beginning really killed the animation! nothing interesting happens just pictures flowing around 1 minute just hearing someone and looking at pictures isn't really good for the viewer! take that in mind in the next animation! I can't say that the characters looked bad because it's better than the previous ones and the fact that your still developing your self ! the ads movements were really funny! the hair movement when they were in the window like your trying develop wind blow!! just focus on getting a better stroke and everything will be fine the stroke at the end is better than the whole animation stroke quality ! also maybe you could change the background quality into blur in some areas because that will help focus on more at the characters ! just like the one at the end! and good luck with your animation!

Well damn... i'm really glad you made it on the front page otherwise i would have missed this.
Being massively into mecha thought i would give this a try and i wasn't disappointed.
So i have to ask being a massive fan of the xin series... are we gonna be seeing more of xin and hanto or was that kind of an easter egg. xD

They were an Easter egg, but their voice actors however, will be making future appearances ;).

Glad you enjoyed it! I'm so grateful that this was featured on the front page.

like imbehindyou says. how DARE you have a video with mechs and introduce it with an interesting story to give a point and meaning to the mindless blood shed, explosions equal to a michael bay film, and animated breasts bigger than the head of the hulk. (Complete joke) anyways i like the story pace and theme. also i would like to wish you luck on your novel.

I think you have a good start, the animation is good and all. That being said, I think you need to up the action bit. Don't get me wrong I understand the need to make a decent story line and compelling characters, but you're advertising a world with GIANT ROBOT SUITS BATTLING EACH OTHER and instead trying to cram in 15 minutes worth of character development.

Not saying that development isn't important, but it can get in the way when people are really expecting to see an actual mecha battle.

nikedrummer33 responds:

Yeah, I know. This is based on my novel so it's already all planned out and written. And there's going to be action. But it's going to be balanced with actual plot and character development. That being said, I'm emphasizing the battles that happen in the next episode. I preferred to work on the development first instead of start out with action then abruptly stop and switch to development. One way or another, people would complain so I just decided to get it over with first.
