Anime Girl Swats Fly

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Anyhow, ANIME GIRL SWATS FLY is a work of "Mickey Mousing" (Google the term, my friends) to the One Piece OST track "Ichijya Tetai" ("One Hour Evacuation"). It follows a woman I call Nelly as she deals with an unwelcome fly. And that's about it. There's not much of a story to summarize.

It's been nearly two years since my last submission to Newgrounds, and what do I have to show for it? One minute of animation. This is more like 3 collective weeks worth of work, so don't get overexcited. The other hundred weeks or so were spent on irrelevant Flash and slacking in general.

ANIME GIRL SWATS FLY has the most intense frame by frame animation I've ever made, and as a result, I'm very tired of drawing Nelly. Tired of drawing, period. This experience has reinforced my decision to not pursue animation as a profession (maybe character design is more to my liking...). My mouse's left-click button is now a different color from the right-click button. EDIT: I'm sorry to have confused and dismayed some of you - I'm still going to animate stuff. Just not for a living.

Anyhow, you may notice there's a newer trackbar. It's a vast improvement over the one I designed for FFA+ - heavily inspired by Media Player Classic's interface. And by "heavily inspired," I mean "completely ripped off from." The thing will tell you how many seconds have loaded, so feel free to start watching whenever. You can also step through the animation frame by frame, speed through it at any rate (even backwards), and adjust the volume. Clicking the screen or pressing spacebar will toggle play/pause. The rest should be self explanatory.

Epic win

One million times more funny than the original. Now with 100% more ballchinions.




what you attempted to parady is probably the best flash on here and this wasn't even slighty funny so if this is what you call a parody please stick to making original flashs


I see nothing more than rotating objects personally. You have three items you needed to move around. The fly swatter, The fly, and 'Anime girl'. Very poorly done. Would have been alright if more effort was put into the frame by frame. Parody or not, the animation sucks.

tsk tsk tsk Im so gonna mail you how I might make

This is poorly done. The Anime Girl is not excited at all. Kinda too tired. I get how uch of a pain of a butt it is to animate. This one felt like Ren and Stimpy too. The fly was too big and was angry looking. Nice zaney "I gotta swat the fly" thing. If its a parody, your tootsie pop commercial parody blew this one out the window. Work sucks and I believe this was a good idea. 5 out of 10. Now get some sleep Anime Girl ;P.
