i would like to thank nick birkner aka Draxzen for providing his voicework, which will be featured in future episodes too. also, you may want to turn the volume up a bit more then ususal to hear the subtle sfx over the music and voices.

Very impressive, especially for 2005. 45 frames per second, a good voice actor with mostly clean audio, a finalized art style, absolutely excellent for the time. Very deserving of the Daily first.

The only thing I really dislike is the overt use of JPEGs. The compression really shows. The animation itself is admittedly not very impressive but I feel as though that many of the techniques overshadow this issue. The aesthetic choices are very creative for a gothic series, such as the TV static you used for fog.

The voice work, while excellent for the time, has a few problems, which are reverberation and background static. You managed to cover it up decently with the soundtrack but I was still able to tell.

I realize that criticizing this is a moot point since both Michael Chapin and Nick Birkner have both fallen off the planet but I feel a certain admiration toward this particular work.

It's a damn shame you two didn't continue the series past this point, if you did, you probably would have competed neck to neck with Xombie when it was still around. It really is too bad that we've entered an era of the internet where independent creators, web series and animation go to die. With the impending death of Flash, creating something by yourself and self publishing will soon be part of a bygone era.

It's not perfect, but it deserves to be acknowledged for coming close.

I thought this was great! It's a shame I have not seen the other entries. Then again, maybe I HAVE and just don't remember. The animation was great in this. I really loved how you have such good dialogue. There's a lot going on.

Everything is just so smooth. I feel like the size was just of the right quality. The voices suited the characters perfectly. A bit too short, but still very nice. I can appreciate all of this.

Grand Scale

Keep'em coming

Excellent,but my only complaint is....

that the voice acting for Chain(orange text) didn't seem "heavy" enough for the character itself,but other than that it was great.

good stuff
