I made this for Halloween 2012 and I totally forgot to upload it here, oops. OH WELL HERE IT IS

This song is also known as 博識であるが故、狂気 or "Wide knowledge of the late, madness", though that's apparently a mistranslation. It actually means something more like "I have gained extensive knowledge and have therefore gone mad". At least, that's what I've been told. :B

Unfortunately publishing the file with full audio quality completely ruins the timing of everything near the end which is kind of important, so it's not as high as it could be. You can watch the youtube version for better audio quality if that really bugs you though.

All original characters in the L4D universe again. Hunter and Smoker are mine, Jockey and Charger are Jazaaboo's.

An incredibly interesting means of portraying this story. I love the way the art styles change in times of innocence and abruptly change to dark and spooky at the perfect time. Cool song too! What asian dialect was the song in if i may ask? Also, I didn't even realize that they were L4D characters until I read the description XD Great job!

I liked the video and the use of music the only minor problem is, i kinda wanted to see what she would turn into.


Zarla responds:

She becomes a Jockey. :B

Well this was a different kind of learning than I expected, it starts off somewhat melancholy, but it's not till the end you really realize what's happened, see the zombies turn to lost friends, the main character give up... when I saw the "This way" message at first I was thinking it'd be something comical the way she was going the wrong way, but it's all but comical. Though there's really not much animation, the music/picture combo is beautiful. Effectual and atmospheric. Nice work!

The animation is lacking in, well, animation. It's mostly still images. My rating is mostly for making me aware of this awesome song.

I remember going to your site a long time ago and seeing these characters and their stories. Truthfully I like them a lot mind that I don't like tragic tales but the characters are well made. You really know how to bring out the emotion of things, now as for the animation it is good but if you can make your movements and transitions smoother you could make some really amazing animations.
