Thank you guys for all of your reviews so far! I never expected to make it to frontpage with my first submission!
Anyways, for everyone not able to view the credits at the start: The music is from Crono Cross; Time's Scar.


This is a small story about how a couple got seperated from each other and died in solitude, but gained a second chance when they became the spirits residing over sound: the Echo.

It is actually my first handdrawn animation. I wanted to do something more artistic, and being partly inspired by Okami, this is what I came up with. It is my third piece with a certain type of spirit as the main subject, but since the others are all just drawings, you will have to visit my devart to view them:


I was doubting whether or not to submit this on Newgrounds, and decided I should do it. I worked on it for 4 weeks, and finished it approximately 2 months ago. Anyways, even though there is no violence or whatever in it, I hope you guys still like it.


Very nice.

Well done! I love this song.


I'm...It's just...Wow...I'm speechless! It's truly one of the best animations I've seen in my LIFE! Really, it was amazing and I really thank you for making it! The music choice was brilliant, the animation itself was amazing! I love everything about it! ^^

Wow, cool!

"This piece of art went right into my heart.
I felt all warm inside as I saw color and music collide".
