**There's a special version of this episode on yotube. Go visit my channel. My username over there is hitthefloor729.**

*There's no need to translate the Japanese voices.If you do, THE JOKE WON'T MAKE SENSE!*

The Japanese voices are from the "LoZ:Sound and Drama" Soundtrack, Not Naruto or Final Fantasy like most of you thought.
Flash #16.Please read before viewing
Thanks for the 3rd place award! First time I get one. Front Page? OMG! I didn't think it would get this popular. Thanks Newgrounds!
Here it is, finally, the conclusion of the "Broken Magic Mirror" episode has arrived. I never expected to take this long to make it.
When we last left off,Green Link found a magic mirror which was supposed to teleport him and the other Links back to the entrance.However, not realizing that the mirror was used broken, our heroes try to return to the Eastern Palace with it, knowing little of the dangers and mishaps that lie ahead.

If you are one of the many viewers who came to see the "Matrix Reloaded" related fight scene with the Dark Links, I hate do dissapoint you, but it's not gonna happen. Why? The joke's been done numerous times and I preferred to take the series to another direction. By doing this, I wanted to come up with more creative (and maybe original)Jokes. there is also a reference to video game censorship at the end. The joke is a little over the top,yet it's the best part :P. There are also references to other movies and even one "8-bit" flash that most of you already know about.I'm saving Dark Link for later episodes.

I know I'm gonna get a lot of complaints about the sound quality in this episode, so let me do a brief explination:

Audio out of sync: It'll happen sometimes.To fix this, pause and play the flash.I Made the scene skipping buttons to help out when it occurs. when you increase the framerate (from 12 to 20fps), any type of sound will go out of sync with the flash.

Poor Quality Voices/bad voice acting:Nobody has perfect recording equipment and not everyone is an experienced voice actor,not even me. It's hard to adjust the voices properly
when one records their VA lines louder or softer than the other person and I know it'll will hurt the flash a lot more this way. It's too complicated for most of you to understand.

Purple Link's accent:Mario Simic,who does Purple's voice, is from Sweeden and he's also new to the whole voice acting thing,but he's getting good at it. Don't criticize his accent.It's not necesary.

That about covers it.

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Didn't care for it.

Graphics: A mix of different sprites that I didn't expect to see. Fairly well setup.
Style: A zelda based mishaps sorta. I like some of your parodies, but I didn't care for this one. It was good in some of the randomness, like the contra bit and the old school Zelda bit. The matrix idea is a bit overused, though.
Sound: Towards the end, the voices and sound didn't sinc up with the text boxes and mirror effect. Also, the use of Japanese voices was rather messed up, and not in the good way. The music, however, was used well. The Naruto theme (ending) actually fits.
Violence: Boomerang. The only thing that was in any way violent.
Humor: Didn't care for alot of it. Some of the random rooms gave me a slight chuckle. And I like the joke on American Censorship. But I just didn't care to much for it overall. Despite the Censors joke, the use of the Japanese dialogue was a bit ridiculious, but I guess it is to allow the joke to work.
Overall: Alot of stuff here I don't really care too much for. There are some stuff alot of people will find very funny, but there are some things that I just don't really care for.

That was craptastically boring. On the bright side, the voice/sounds were fine.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

Could have been better... alot better.

I think Im the only one who noticed how simple this was to make...
I mean, your characters hardly ever even move they usually just stand in one spot and you just change the scene, which isnt very hard to do. I didnt see alot of effort put into this and the script sucked too. Hell I couldve made a better one... Actually, I think I WILL make a better one, but not really, Im lazy like that. Back to the point, the whole episode was pointless (And dont say "Thats what made it funny" because if you do then youre wrong.) so thank you for wasting like 5... maybe up to 8 minutes of my life, and 1 minute more that I consumed to make this review. Thank you, good bye, try harder (Try to focus on making your characters lines better, you have four characters but you really only need Green and Red, try to include your other characters in your script more, and make what they say actually matter...) good bye, for serious this time. Bye.

Perhaps instead of making excuses for the recording equipment/voice-acting problem, you should instead be looking for ways to "improve" on it. Like maybe investing in some better recording equipment? It seems like you are planning to continue doing flash, so it would most likely be a good idea to upgrade your tools for creating it instead of neglecting it and allowing your work to suffer.
As for the flash itself, I would have to say that it was okay at best. Having said that, I can see that you do have people that like it, so good for you. Just don't give me that crap you've been telling other nay-sayers that it isn't your problem that I don't like it. That's pure bull. As the creator of a public work, it is your problem. Instead of taking offense, look instead at what you can fix.
You might also want to consider shortening the "Last episode..." part of the flash. When it finally ended, I was almost sure that the flash was done. You just need the summary, not the entire last episode...

Anyways, I suppose I'll leave you with that. Good luck in the future...
