5 months in the making. And I finished it last night. I can't believe it. THE WAIT IS OVER!

1.7 megs. Audio made it jump, and yes it is compressed.

Known bug list:

1. Walking Cycle shadows show the hands when faded out, as though the body is transparent.

2. Blood splats over-lap parts of the background.

3. Areku moves too fast in 2 sections of the Flash.

4. (Pointed out to me.) The rebels do not play their walking cycle, they just glide across.

First... people don't walk that slow. They also have arms and legs. Ninjas don't walk around in broad daylight. Announcers don't talk so slowly and obviously an octave lower than their usual voice would sound. Not to mention that there are no semi-automatic sniper rifles in existance, and that any sniper would have taken out a target moving so slowly. Jumping usually involves crouching down beforehand, and doing a cartwheel in mid air without shifting your body weight at all is impossible. You didn't even kill the enemies he shot with the sniper rifle at the same pace that he actually FIRED. Poorly made, low quality, terrible plot. Try paying more attention to how things move in real life. Take a step yourself, and look how long it takes. Also, watch how far they move when they take a step. It wasn't too bad, but it was off a little. After the sniper scene, I just stopped watching, but I'm sure there are a load of more mistakes. If you're going to put this much time into making something then stop, go back, watch it, and see if you can notice anything that doesn't seem right in it. Does it look realistic for your style? Are things consistant? Etc. Don't give up, just try harder.

Wow, you surely know NOTHING about firearms.

Semi-automatic Sniper Rifles exist. An example of a fully automatic sniper rifle is the VSS Vintorez, which fires a 9x39mm round. (Here's the PSG-1 link

In that link "Action: Semi-automatic, roller-delayed blowback". Think before you speak dumbass.

How anti-climatic! He jumped down with that awesome sword (cool detail on the sword btw!) and he gets beat with one move?! lol That was pretty good otherwise. I know what you mean by cutting music for the credits... it just doesn't feel right when it's a good song! Good job, I look forward to the next one!

Seen It

Looks too much like Madness, not sure if that was on purpose or not. Unimpressive fight scenes and the usual ninja "ooo so cool" bullshit. By the way, why would a ninja wait for enemies under a light post at night?

PunishedOne responds:

Good question, I've never known why I set Areku waiting there... 0.o

how come their was no blood on the sword

one more thing how come the peoples body are like raymans


PunishedOne responds:

You obviously are stupid.

1. You don't know how hard it is to have blood stained on Areku's katana.

2. Raymen were (Look! WERE! I moved up now!) my style.

i don't like this

the animation, was pretty confusing, and the cars and weapon drawings was way better than the character. and the ending was way to short.
