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 TokyoPop.com. 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.



It really reminded me of Dragon Ball Z, or Akria's works. Really nice Flash Animation thou, good work

Heal the world with SuperPope.



I enjoyed this flash from beginning to end and I made sure to share this with my friends. I wish this stayed on Front Page a bit longer simply because it deserves it. Sheer Talent! Please make more.

Wow, thank you very much! As of this evening, I have animated a total of 2 minutes 42 seconds of episode 2. It's well under way!

A really enjoyable flash movie...

The only think that really buged me, was the name of the hero: "Super Pope" I mean come on, can't you hear how lame it sounds? :)
My suggestion would be that you rename him to "Bishop"... nothing fancy, just Bishop!!

That was perfect!

Dude the hard work got paid just like that!
That movie was almost a film it was long funny and good.
Great film i wish to see episode 2 soon!


Very well done. I really enjoyed it. Resembles a lot like DBZ, which I like. Gotta love that demon's laughter :P
