Wow. Got onto the DBZ Collections! A big THANKYOU to Tom and Wade!
Anyway, work is well underway for my next tribute, watch out for it! ;)

If you liked this animation, please give me a review, I try and reply to them all, so give me a review to let me know what you think, thanks.

Well this is my first submission to newgrounds and my first true animation now don't switch off and blam, cos this is my first animation, this isn't like the crappy first animations most submit! This is fully drawn, and well animated!
I started this in around October and throughout this animation you can see my drawing skills improving.

If you're a DBZ fan you'll LOVE this, if you're a neutral and decide to vote on how well done this is you'll find this to be good, if you hate DBZ and blam anything with DBZ in it then please, leave now.

This was a college project and we were originally supposed to do a storyboard of 4-5 (original or based on a tv show or movie of you choice, I chose a DBZ tribute) scenes and put into Flash and add some sound, smooth animation and tweens, well I done over 50 scenes with many sounds and music and I got a merit (which means I showed initiative and went beyond the set goals that had to be met) pass for this, it really is that good.

This is when Goku turns SSJ for the first time on Planet Namek, this is from the time Krillin gets blown up until the time Goku goes SSJ and Frieza is wondering: WTF?!

The music is from the Japanese and English versions of Dragonball Z. It features the original Jap theme song "Cha-la Head Cha-la" (used as main theme for this animation) by Kageyama Hironobu as well as the SSJ fight theme from the Jap DBZ. The other music is "SSJ Transformation" and "Rock the Dragon" by Bruce Falcouner. There are sound effects for lightning, rocks cracking and wave sounds and I can't remember where I found those, but credit to the creators of them.

OK some specifications for best performance:
If your PC is under 1000MHz or you are running many programs turn down the quality so the music is synched right.
If you computer is 1000MHz or higher then it should run perfectly.

Special Thanks go to John Butler, my 2D animation lecturer for helping me with the preloader and teaching me flash and also Akira Toriyama for creating DBZ!

Now, on with the show! ENJOY!

Well Barry...

Im not saying that the movie was bad, I just didn't like it.
I think the way you "tear" other peoples review to "shreads" is just as retarded as you made Shimdut sound. Try to think before you start typing random shit while you pissed, just because some kid didn't like your movie. When he says there is no difference, that doesn't mean that your movie is as good as the tv drawn series, nice wish though Barry.

No originality? Nope. Theres plenty of other DBZ flashes out there. This was not an original. Besides if we wanted to see this, we would watch the higher quality, longer, actuall streaming, with voice and all (gasp i know its that scary) on tv. Or your choice you could just go buy the dvd set.

He did compare this movie with the original, he compared Good, to crap. But I'll be the one to tell you whats god and whats not.

While Goku just kind of sat there and poorly bounced up and down while turning into SS.
How people just kind of held their mouths open and words just fell out.
Theres plenty other that you can point out, you obveously didn't put much time into this video.

The graphics, sound, interactivity, style, and overall could deserve a zero. Its not based on if there is graphics, its based on the quality of the graphics. Those votes are purely out of opinion, so he had his right to give it a zero.

And you can go ahead and put
"And one more thing:
Flash by Shimdut:
- none -
Say it all really." Because mainly, I just won't care. As of now im a critic not an artist. Seriously get a life, your really going to sit here and try to "tear" a kids review to "shreads"?

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

"Try to think before you start typing random shit while you pissed"? Well guess what! I do! Which is why I can point out major flaws in the bad reviews so easily.

While you do try your best to sound intelligent in your review you still fell victim to making silly mistakes in your reviewing "style".

You claim you'll be the one to tell me what's good? No, no you won't. Your opinion doesn't matter. You're probably not even a DBZ fan (The people this was made for, they seem to love it) anyway... so why review?

You can't tell me what's good and what's crap as if you thought for example, Idiot Ninjas 3 is crap, I'll know you're wrong, as a lot of work and effort went into it, which is what you should be basing your reviews on, the amount of work and effort that went into it and it's quality.

"No originality? Nope. Theres plenty of other DBZ flashes out there. This was not an original."
Now, when did I ever say this was original? Never. What the fuck are you talking about? It's a TRIBUTE to a scene in DBZ. Also in your statement you contradicted yourself twice, fool.

"you obveously didn't put much time into this video."
And you OBVIOUSLY don't know what you're talking about, think before you type.
I worked on this for 5 months for a college flash assessment, it got a merit, not just a pass, but a MERIT. It was a recreation of a scene, but that's beside the point as I put EFFORT into it. (I do beleive I said this in my Author's comments, something people should read before they try to claim things they don't know about).

"The graphics, sound, interactivity, style, and overall could deserve a zero."
Now as you should be basing your reviews on the QUALITY (you said it yourself) and EFFORT put into the work then no, the graphics did NOT deserve a zero, the timing of the sound effects and music did NOT deserve a zero. A review based purely on OPINION is bullshit. Like a DBZ hater (The opinion that DBZ is crap) giving a DBZ flash all zeros, it's retarded.
If someone was to not like DBZ but decide to review the flash based on it's QUALITY then it would get a much fairer score.

And you may say you reviewed as a "critic" but you seemed to review as if you were actually a flash artist and proved that you have absolutely no fucking idea on what you were talking about. To review as a critic is to base your scores on the quality of the flash while backing up your scores with reason, you seemed to moan about my reply to another review (all you said about my flash really was it's "crap" not a valid reason).

There comes a time every few months where a couple of you try and make a point and get all high and mighty like you're some flash expert and therefore your opinion counts more than others, but you fail. If you knew how to construct a flash, even one that's a remake of something else then you'd know how long it takes and how much work is needed and you'll have a much better understanding then maybe you'd know what you're talking about.

Tom Fulp, the creator of NG LIKED it and that's why he added it to the DBZ collection, he knows quality!

Now begone, fool.

Super Supid Jap?

Is that what SSJ stands for? Oh voices. Not cool. DBZ not cool. This flash...not...good.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Time to educate you, little cretin.
1. SSJ stand for "Super Saiya-Jin".
2. I've explained WHY there is no voices. Not a reason to give sound 0 when there is music and sound effects.
3. "DBZ not cool"? So you don't like DBZ? Then why the fuck did you watch a DBZ flash movie? Idiot.
4. Your reasoning for this flash being "not good" is flawed. Your reasoning being "no voices" and "DBZ not cool"... pfffft.

Now, begone, fool.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

great but..

it was great but it needs voices man


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

it was ok

the sound could be improved alot.and mabye edit goku,he looks a little on the fat side from certain angles,other than that,good work.

Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

What s with these bad reviews recently?
I could be improved a lot? That's rich coming from someone who hasn't made a flash. And why 2 for sound?
If it was "good work" why only 5/10?

Sometimes, I really wonder...


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


it's a direct copy with less movement... good but not great, also pretty unoriginal tbh

People find this review helpful!
Barry-the-SuperScot responds:

Maybe, but I enjoyed making it. At least it's not traced. The 2nd is much better.
