HK's Phoenix Wrong

Author Comments

I originally began this Flash before the end of 2006. It took me an eternity to complete because I had to keep hopping back and forth to the Internet to grab necessary sprites and audio, and I had to isolate the individual character sprites in Photoshop so that I could avoid the old problem where if you trace a bitmap in Flash, the colors become distorted.

Also, I'd like to clarify a few things from the disclaimer at the end of the movie: As some of the forum-frequenting users here on Newgrounds already know, I'm an anti-4Kids anime fan. I don't seek to destroy the company entirely; I only want them to clean up their act.


Needs touching up

It's entertaining to be sure, but the lack of volume balancing was a real pain, as I sat with my hand on the speaker knob trying to keep it from getting too loud. Also, many of the sound bytes were tough to follow.

A lot of the sprites had layering issues, too.

Still, creative and funny. Good job.

The first sound was quiet from the start; there was little to nothing I could do about it. The seventh, well, it was a quick mic-up-to-the-speaker rip, so I wasn't expecting much from it.

As for the sprite layering: there were a few flaws in the sprites already, and I may have miscalculated a few things when doubling the size of the sprites. Sorry. Thanx for the compliments, anyway.

Dragged on a bit

I felt that this flash just used random bits from tv shows and movies that werent really all that funny. To me the only funny bit was the scene from Conkers Bad Fur Day. Maybe you should try to work on something of your own style and something that hasnt been done so many damn times.

Not a bad try

The only thing I found absolutely annoying was that the sound issue which was already stated by the previous reviewer. It was somewhat funny which is a big reason why I gave it the score I did.

Clean up the graphics a bit and work on the sound and it would be better.

Phoenix SO wrong...

I love these, brings back memories. There are so many of these they should make an entire collection for this.

There already is. Check under "video game parodies" in the Collections section.

I really love these but...

Can't give a good grade for this kind of video EVER because of the lack of animation but it doesn't mean i don't appretiate nor understand the effort that goes into the jokes ect. in fact i really really love 'em but i personally don't think they are good. rather i find them entertaining which are two different things for me.

and yes any true anime/manga fan truly dislikes 4-kids for their lousy lousy job (finely portrayed by LittleKuriboh's Yu-Gi-Oh the abridged series.) just had to throw that in

Thank you and though this may be a review on the bad side please don't stop i love these things
