Thank you all so much for the front page! Really means a lot! :3
Thank you all for the Daily Feature! Really means a lot for the first episode. :3

BlackBelt (BB), Kyo, Rat, Skoot, and Swiff are five friends enjoying summer vacation. Throughout the day, they notice something is amiss and decide to investigate.

This is the first of many episodes to come! While I still have a lot to learn about animation, I think I'm ready to finally start my real projects. Unlike the projects I've previously uploaded, these new episodes are going to be a complete series. No more going on hiatus. These are what I'm doing from now on (with the exceptions of short animations occasionally):
• A.E. Chronics
• Zelda UO

I will continuously release these out throughout the years (in that order). And they won't take months to make as I've been preparing these past few years to make these time-efficient, without losing quality. So enjoy the new !US! Studios! And don't forget to check out our new website:

• BB's line, "I didn't get a chance to say anything" has subtitles I missed when I was removing subtitles.
• Spellcheck made what was supposed to be "Adobe Photoshop" actually spelled, "Adobe Protoshop". Fucking auto-correct.

"when I was removing subtitles"
Why. D: Couldn't you make them, I dunno, optional (turn on/off) or something?


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Excellent work Scoot! The visuals are absolutely beautiful and the voice acting is great stuff as well (a few of Rat's lines were a little iffy though). The only weak link here is the story which did a good job introducing each character and defining their personalities but did little with presenting a fluid overarching narrative for the episode, leaving it a bit barren. However, this is the first episode so I'm sure this factor will improve in time with future updates in the series (I have absolute faith in you Scott).

Overall, I greatly enjoyed what I saw and am very excited to see what comes next. Keep up the good work mate!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Just wanna add one more comment and raise that score again. I know it may sound stupid to some people but hey, I've been a fanboy for years and at a time you and Ego were the only reason I stick around on this site. Now it's you only though :x Well, even though I've been commenting on, like, every single site you posted this video on.
Just accept my 5 stars, even though I do recognize some flaws to this movie but I am in no position to critique an animation when I cannot even make one myself. Still love your works Scoot :3

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great animation, the character art designs are actually quite good and beautifully drawn, made better with the bold outlines. Also the characters themselves may seem like normal teens at first glance but actually have more and more distinctive features about them, making them seemingly like normal yet looking quite different than normal teens giving them a different feel. Also, I like their interesting and funny personalities at times.
Also, after watching a lot of your other animations, I actually thinks that your current character artstyle design is quite good after improvements, but I actually personally that you should focus more the background design and more logical character movements such as when they are walking or part where Rat got picked up seem very legit, even though this animation's background seem more decent designed and 3Dish as compared to your past works, but I still felt legit in my opinion when mixed with the 2D characters but I won't be too much to bothered by it, even if you continue using the 3D backgrounds.
Also, I don't actually think that the current voice acting are bad as to what others think, I think it's actually quite clear and syched as compared to your past works, the characters seem to be able to bring more emotions to their voice too, making them even more distinct with the other characters. Also the background music for it is actually quite good at adding to the mood and making the story more interesting and exciting at times too.
Now for the story, the story's pacing is actually quite decent and normal in my opinion just like any anime I watched. But sadly, it's not for some other impatient people with short attention span. I story itself is quite normal, though there are some limitations, but the storyline plot itself seem to have improved and more understandable as compared to your past works. Also, aside from some of the humours in it, I actually think that the animation is more up to the daily lives of five teens or exciting slice of life genre. Speaking of which, I actually don't mind all the characters being males, after all, it's more on the teenagers messing around and have fun, excitement and adventure and having some jokes among themselves as friends normally. Sadly some other people who watched too much adult animation around to think otherwise. What I am mainly disappointed about is that I was actually expecting the characters be caught into some mystery, abnormal or detectivelike situations, after the suspenseful background music was played. ( I wasn't expecting action anyway since it seem more on normal teen lives animation). So overall of the story, I think is quite normal and decent with exciting times here and there, just like any typical teenage daily life animation or even better. Also, the tree part was actually quite beautiful designed, truly brings out a lot on your 3D designing skill that time, though I was actually expecting something else there. Also, the animation and the mainly storyline have potential to continue to be better.
I have also watched a lot of your other animations, I like how you tend to keep staying optimistic towards the other negative reviews. Really hope I can get some brush of your optimism, especially these days, where people on the site tend to be quite pessimistic and bigoted.
Also, pardon my long reviews and blunders, even though I actually still want to have more to say but I think I'll stop here, since even I felt that I have reviewed too much. Anyway, Great job there.
