Wow, well done with this! Can I ask, is this originally voice-acted or is it a recreation? Either way, I still think this is an amazing piece of work, and i'm now going to proceed to watch them all!


Interesting story

I saw part 5 and had to see it from the beginning. Very interesting story, a pretty unique type of artwork/graphic ( though I am not used to black and white) and the background music somehow just goes with the mood. This is a great piece and I am looking forward to seeing how it turn out.


As a Chinese, I am truly proud of your work. I am going for session 2 right away.

+++ Lovely art style. I thought much of the scenery truly looked like it'd been drawn with brush, ink and water. Specially the first horizon with the boy and the final scene, viewed from above.

++++ Beautiful music.

- when you fade in/out the characters, the outlines of all shapes we see look slightly cheap.

++++ Intriguing story.

- I'd have maybe liked to know a bit more about this character and his aims.

A great beginning for the series. We meet the hero/'sidekick', learn of his skill and calm disposition... the puppet-maker is an interesting idea...

I'm not yet spell-bound, but am already starting to care about this.


Beautiful. Mysterious. Captivating.

This is the quality material I'd like to more often see. I might call this simple-sophisticated. What I mean is, it doesn't veer from its focus, the art style is consistent throughout, it's carefully thought out and put together, and the story doesn't come off as pretentious while simultaneously it remains poetic.

Works well for part one.

And it doesn't rely solely on a gore-fest or profanity.

I look forward to seeing more.
