Please help this anim out by recommending it to the Parody and Religious collections.

Thanks for the awards and front page listing!

I made this Dragon Ball Z quasi-parody back in 2000 for an anime-style Flash contest at The grand prize was $10,000 with a $1,000 prize offered for first place in each of 6 categories. I didn't win the grand prize, but I did win first place in the "fighting" category, so that was cool. Now -- years later -- I'm finally working really hard on episode II (which has painted backgrounds and a much more involved story), so I figured I'd submit this to Newgrounds and try to drum up some interest. Hope you enjoy it!

NOTE: If you watched this movie before March 7th, 2006 and thought it was too slow, please watch it again. I fixed some errors that were causing it to perform badly on slower PCs.

MsCritic know's exactly what she's talking about

Just kidding, DUH, first of all, when something is blasphemous to something, such as an evil/angry pope to religion, then it means it is is incorrect, regardless of outside factors. What the fuck does freedom of expression have to do with this. I know you can this flash was garbage, but if, for example, someone says there is 25 cents in a quarter and you supposedly use your freedom of expression to say that is wrong, then that isn't a freedom, but your retardedness.

i have to give it to the last guy who reviewed here. The whole DBZ obsession thing is really weird. The whole "blasphemous" thing is WAY OFF. we live in a country of free expression and weather your toon was a peice of shit or not should be up to us, the reviewers!! I doubt if I said that the pope or jesus was an asshole i would go to hell.... either way, your toon was boring, and reterded. work on a less serious toon. that pope guy was really into the whole...blasting..thing.....dialouge would be nice :)

I say it was good.

Unlike the extremist in the previos review I thought the animation was great. The concept can be slightly offensive, but not to me. The only problem to me is that the show was slow paced, and a lot of people like me will get bored fast even if its a great flash. I rather see Pope killing demons than Inuyasha XD

Fit for the anime loving douchies

OK, first thing, if you love anime to a great extent, then I will call you a douchie, especially if you are a little kid. And if you are an anime-loving adult, then you will be labeled as an anime loving prude. It's not biased or anything of that nature. But the fact of the matter is, it's queer and I grew out of it a long time ago. It makes you look like a total fag and like someone who will NEVER get laid. I am not telling you what to think or like, but I scorn such childish behavior. Only a FEW anime shows are exceptable, such as Cowboy Bebop (which is kinda alright due to the excessive violence). I mean, adding a few curses does not make a cartoon mature. Real maturaty stems from realizing the problems of the world and attempting to fix them, despite how impossible. An anime-lover, who obssessess his life over cartoons, is not considered mature in my book what so ever. End of story. And to those who want to criticize me, I just have got one thing to say, "Awww, I'm sorry I hurt your feelings, BUT THE TRUTH HURTS DOESN'T IT." Now, onward to the flash. Alright, the guy before griping about originality, yeah, the pope idea is semi-original, and the anime/DBZ scheeme is NOT original at all. The voices were horrible, I recommend you re-do them even if the contest is over (no wonder you didnt win first of all). The pope thing is alo blasphemous to christianity due to the fact that a pope would never express hatred, fury, or anger in any event. That pope seemed miniacle and vicious, a true epitome to what Satan (who nobody ever should worship or feel the fury of God) craves. And your animation. Maybe I'm wrong in saying, but at a true glance, what did you anime. There was barely any movement if you look. All's it was flashing lights combined single frames that made it appear as though moving (much like DBZ). There are some great flash artists on Newgrounds, but honestly, you don't compare. And if you end up responding to this review, don't blurt out random and ill-provoked comments, write like a man.

CaptainSid responds:

Ahh. So you think being an adult means enjoying things simply because of their excessive violence, calling people cute little made up slang terms like "douchies", incorrectly using words like "prude" and "ill-provoked", and generally not being able to spell, form a sentence, or complete the expression of a thought coherently?

And of course you're right. I should have consulted you on your massive knowledge of all things Christian before making this ill-advised animation. If demons walked the Earth and the Pope had God-given superpowers, I suppose he and the demon would sit down and talk things out over some tea and biscuits. And I suppose Jesus didn't kick the money-changers out of the temple, either.

So you didn't like my Flash movie. That's just fine. I'm happy that the movie affected you to such a degree that you felt compelled to write such a long review of it, but your incomprehensible ranting just demonstrates that you're a hateful idiot and a waste of everybody's time.
