This episode introduces our "hero" and tells of how he betrays his fellows and is forced to flee for his life, I must admit it is a little short but I feel this adds to the effect, yes I do know my japanese is awful, but I'm not japanese! i think the animation could be better and some may agree in saying the credits are better than the actual movie, well they were made afterwards, and the sort of come as a taster of the style and fluidity of the second episode... enjoy fellow grounders!

not bad

a good movie with good graphics and cool audio..... but the only question i have is this: was there either a full storyline or an overall plot to this one? it had a decent japanese setting to it, but there must've been more to it then that. what was the plot/storyline to it?

Headless-Chicken-Man responds:

It is the first short episode in the series, the plot is that he is caught with a photo of his family in his possession which is agaisnt the rules, the other ninja should have told the sensai and he would have been executed but, instead he wanted to burn the photo in front of him, our "hero" couldn't bear watching his prized family photo burn before his eyes, so in a rush of anger he sliced his fellow ninja in two with one swift movement, by killing the other ninja he was in even more trouble, so with a tear in his eye he left the place that had been his home for a few decades to burn, and fled for his life...

kinda confusing

the whole time i had no idea wat was goin on. nothin lasted, and it went too fast. next time make it longer, and a bit smoother. try to make it easier to understand.


Much can be improved, the speed of which your scenes change is just insane, it can really cause confusion...it was really short, but im not saying that was really bad thing.....Hmm I Think thats about all i can criticize about right now, I hope that was some help to you ^^

Erm...Did that take you 5 minutes?

That was pretty lame, the graphics weren't too good, the whole thing was too fast [an unwise thing to do if you were trying to create the cinematic method known as montage] and the whole movie is about 30 seconds long! At less if your gonna make a flash have the time to make it a little lengthy so we can judge your work more fairly. Advice = Try again

That went by wayyy to fast.....

It was ok, but the scenes went by so fast it was hard to understand at times. Slow it down a bit.
