Last year, I made this cartoon for my mother and about my mother for last Christmas. It's a short action-packed satire on her blood collection job. I didn't post it last year for many reasons:

1. This was originally not made or intended for Newgrounds. This was a personal cartoon made for a member of my family, and out of respect for them, I did not want to immediately make their cartoon just another showcased item for the general public.

2. Too many Matrix parodies last year anyways - and I know a lot of people were getting sick of those. I was going to do a Blade parody, but she didn't watch that movie.

3. You'd probably have to know my mom or understand the angst of collecting blood for insurance companies to get the joke. As you can see, I'm aiming at a large demographic.

4. After a while, I totally forgot about posting it up here anyways. I finally remembered when I was browsing Newgrounds a few minutes ago and figured "I have time." Apparently, my parents don't mind being put on Newgrounds anyway.

Anyways, a sequel is already in the works and I may post that up here too in a year's time. If I get a good response, I may post dad's last-year cartoon up here as well before this year/week is through. I'm not asking for big votes - just a little respect in the reviews, is all.

QUICK ANSWERS: I'm not ripping off any other than the first two Matrix movies. Anything else is a coincidence. Also, this is not my best animation effort, just an early one. And I forgot to credit "Final Fantasy VIII" for their drum roll music. Also, yes, that's Scrooge. And I made a cartoon because it's actually easier than shopping for her.

And Lina's pronounced "LEE-NAH."

And she's a VAMPIRE by abbreviation and because she takes blood. Not because she's a literal vampire. Read the thing at the beginning.

Well, back to work.

True art comes from heart

It's nice to see this works because you really made it with love for a person. There are really few people who work with that feelings, but their stuff is really great.

V.A.M.P.I.R.E. is more accurate

Heheh, before viewing the movie I thought she was an actual vampire... But then I read the intro. :P Good animation, I liked the scene where she was horizontal going around in a circle... Musta been tough to do.

Also liked the cameo appearing by the infamous Scrooge McDuck. :) Possibly my favorite part.

But I dunno... The character of Lina... She just seems quite mundane and ordinary, I don't sense any special pizazz or personality about her... Not that there has to be, but I've come to expect something extraordinary out of most main characters, and she just seemed to lack any 'oomph.'

Like I said though, good animation.

[I just read the author comments... Whoops... OK I'll just keep my review like this anyway...]

I did not see any vamps unfortunatly. I'm guessing since this is a seires we will get to that in the next one. It's nice to have a feamle main char that kicks ass and isn't all boobs and blonde dumb cheerleader type. It would be nice if she talked more. The action was great and the violence could have used more blood, the vampire fanbase as a whole enjoys lucious, red blood and fangs.
