I was truly impressed by the animation! I couldn't even tell that this thing was a robot. I mean, it looked more like some standard creature. It really reminded me of Scyther. I just found out from Kirbopher that Scyther is his favorite pokemon. I guess I'm just in the mood for it.
These really are different from ninjas and robots I've seen before. I like how the damage on the robot was visible at the end. The ambiguous ending worked pretty well too. I liked how the robot fought. I'm glad it's in two categories!
