[Update] Thanks for front page and all of the awards again everybody. I appreciate the support. ^_^

Wow. 4 months since I started working on this. And now i've finally got the motivation to finish it.
Sorry for keeping all of you waiting (again) and I hope I made it worth the wait.
I'm happy with how this episode turned out. Albeit the fact I had to cut it short because I nearly reached my 16k frame limit. So all of you will have to wait for ep 6 if you wanna know what happens next. Hopefully I won't keep you waiting as long next time.
I don't have much else to say, apart from thanks for all the support and enjoy the movie. ^^



Well, I'm going to try and put a little input into this as far as pros and cons go.

The style of your flashes is unmatched. I've often dreampt of making something to this effect only with the gang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, only to find how truly unique it is to do it.
Humor was another nice little part. The part involving Yoshi trying to get Baby Mario down with Eggs/other things is all to true... (sigh) bad times..
And we all saw it coming, Action. I was smiling throughout the entire fight to see all that action, I was quite literally stunned.
Sprites. Lots and Lots and Lots of sprites. You went from two sprites fighting, to three(?), to eight, to now fourteen. Holy. Crap.
Story was also nice, I'll admit the little details really do make your movies.

Originality. Yes the story and the fights are all unique, but the use of the Axem Rangers was nice, yet also disappointing. It's the same feeling you get when you find out in the Legend of Zelda the chick your after is really Zelda or the real villain is Ganondorf. To the untrained eye, very pleasing, other wise you just look like the guy who put out the same thing every time. (Note: Though I would love to see maybe some new characters on the Mushroom Kingdom screen, I know as well as you do ((I hope at least)) that adding to things as stonehard as Nintendo is hard to do to fan boys) Like I said before, it gets people, so I won't take away from the score, but do consider.

Oh and umm... con...
You're a furry lover, hell I dunno. OOH I got one. Where was Banana Man? You need more Cereal, damnit.

Overall: Once again great, great, and great. Must be annoying to read so many positive comments eh?

Best of Luck on you're next project, whatever it may be.

You've Stepped it Up!

Bravo Earthworm, this is one of the sprite movies that prove that these kinds of movies take skill and can create some of the most entertaining fight scenes.
---Special Effects flowed great with minimal lag (besides the smoke) and was all were very appropriate when applied
----The story has got me to stay tuned until #6, because I absolutely love how Super forms have been limited in this while still retaining the action, making the viewer YEARN to see what the final battle looks like with all 7 Chaos Emeralds.

Your style of fighting is not even directly taken from DBZ, influences yes, but there was quite an amount of realistic fighting maneuvers. The fighting moves used weren't even generic for the most part. For the correct camera positions and effects needed to pull off certain moves, it proves you have skill. Can't wait for Episode 6!

Oh my god!

Smithy is alive???? When I saw the 5 'yoshi' and their color, I was sure those guys were the axem ranger but I never though Smithy would be in there. Its getting really interesting. By the way, if Smithy is alive, does that mean Geno and Mallow are gonna come back too?

Anyway, it was perfect! I cant wait for Super Mario bros Z 6.

You done it again!

I have learnt over the past year, that Alvin-Earthworm always mean quality. :) Kudos to you. :)

Unlike many sprite flashes, and DBZ stuff, this is actually worth something. :)

Hmm.. I dont have to say anything about the scores.. Cause I think I already did that on some of my other reviews of the series.

This episode didn't give shame to the series at all. Keep up with it.
Take your time with the next episode, quality means everything. :)
(Just dont make me wait too long, ok? :P )
