very educational indeed
What a cool informative movie. Most of us know much about the history of the western animation and comics (Stan Lee, Walt Disney, etc), but for many the history of the japanese style anime is really unclear.
I myself for example, like anime alot. Iv watched many manga movies including classics like Akira, Ghost In The Shell, Street Fighter and Spirited Away. But i never really wondered where the actual eastern style came from. Thanks for explaining!
U seem to know alot about animation. Why not use this knowledge to make an awesome anime flash yourself? Final Fantasy A+ is probably the best example of how to do it right. Were u inspired by his preloader for yours?
Ur flash itself was cool and reached goal. Even though the thing could have brought into a more original, spectacular way at times. U used alot of movieclips more than 1 time for example and backgrounds were often lacking :/ I know its a pain to animate all those small details, but when the creation is finished, then it really paid off.
What im really glad of is that u used a clear voice to speak things in, so that it was all very understandable...even for us europeans. Like i said, i hope to see anime work from you in the future, because when u know everything about the styles and techniques, its a must to realise and make something beautiful urself! Let me know when u made something.
