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.



Very professionally made. some pretty sweet flash effects. You might wanna shy away from the Dragonball Z style, no matter how great an animator you are, it's pretty repetitive. and work on your sound recording, i couldn't hear what they were saying all too well, but other than that it was good.

nice graphics

I really liked the graphics and the sound was not bad either, i think you could make some excellent work. I hope the second episode is as good or if not better as i think you could become a top artist. Maybe getting some help to make a better story line would help.

not bad

just plain wierd.. but not bad

Super Pope! Good start..

Great start! I haven't had that much fun watching the Pope since portal submission 21005 (African Detroit Cop). Can't wait to see your next installment.

Good Job

All the haters need to read everything instead of just commenting like they're gods. THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE DBZ, read the fricken Author's Comments before you go flaming. Educate yourselves and stop being so ignorant.

Anyways, good job. I like the art, very solid and vivid. I'll wait to see Ep. 2. Maybe SuperPope will have more lines? Keep up the good work :).
