[Update] Thanks for the Daily feature and front page again everyone. I hope you continue to enjoy my series. ^^

[This is not the next episode of SMBZ, but this intro does contain some visual spoilers for the series. If you don't want some plot elements revealed prematurely, close this browser now!]

Just an anime style intro I've been wanting to make for SMBZ for a while now. Took me roughly a few days to make, start to finish and i'm happy with the results.
The anime music is the opening song from Megaman.EXE Axess. I was inspired to use it after watching the TTA series by Kirbopher15. (Check it out here: http://tta.fireball20xl.com/ ]
But anyway, hope you all enjoy.


at least trace the images yourself or something

christ, this is the the most overrated thing I've seen in a while.

The preloader is consists of the exact same sprites I saw last time I opened one of these. luigi drinking some shit and mario and sonic itching thier heads, and shadow just standing there.
It starts out with some gif of purple and black, and then I see some fucking google images of sonic and mario, wtf, I've seen stuff like that get blammed.

The only good thing to note is the 3d text, but it is followed by stuff that is basically fancy images and animated gifs flashing rapidly while crappy music plays.

How fucking hard is it to draw a short plump guy with a mustache and overalls?

Reading your comments, I see that the music is from megaman. How many popular game referances can you include? I know you aren't telling the mario/sonic/megaman fans how to vote, but this is just asking for it.

I tried to look for a catagory I could increase to one just for the sake of prolonging the reviews deletion by angry fanboys, but I couldn't find one. The graphics where good, but you didn't draw them. The style wasn't yours, the sound was shitty, no real "violence", it wasn't a game, and certainly wasn't funny.

try harder, if you can't draw, team up with someone who can and work your tweening magic on those drawings, but this is just pathetic.

...oh, and the 46*46 looks like hes taking it up the butt

If you've actually visited my Deviantart gallery, you can see I am perfectly capable of drawing. This sprite series is just something I enjoy working on the side.
As I said to another reviewer who gave me 0: What people fail to comprehend is the fact that I didn't make this for the popularity, I just wanted to make a sprite parody for shits and giggles, expecting to get average scores like the majority of aprite flashes here on NG. I didn't submit each episode thinking I was shoe in for Daily Feature and a huge fanbase to boot. It just proves that there are many individuals who enjoy this kind of thing.
The only thing I hate is how the haters put the blame on me for the series being so popular. Newsflash! It's the viewers that made the series popular. The thousands of people who enjoy and vote 5 on my stuff is what made the series such a hit. I didn't go up to Tom Fulp and ask him to make an internet based mind control ray so people would automatically vote 5. So in future, blame the fans for the high ratings.
Either way, the occasional negative feedback won't stop me from working on something I enjoy. So I suggest people learn to accept that.

I'd like a spot..

Hey if you need a spot I'd LOVE to help create this stuff!! You, and BlackDevilX (And that guy who created Sonics Questforpower 1 2 and 3), and Hikari42 are my FAVORITE NG artists, and I'd love to have a spot in this series. AWESOME job btw!!

I didn't really like this flash.

I don't like sprite movies very much. Nothing personal, but they just don't appeal to me.

Things to improve on:

If you're still resolved to use sprites, get sprites that are of higher definition. The flashe loses its appeal when its main character consists of only 8 pixels.

Super Mario Bros Z...

Is the best thing to come on to Newgrounds since Krinkels's Madness combat series (n ot saying your old or anything Krinkels i still favour madness oer this) lol it's very original wih a lot of new ideas i could never in HELL think of the ideas you have though up you are an amazing person at sprites or any flash i really like that.. and as for super mario bros z ep 7 i say for you to take your time krinkels once said "You can't rush perfection" so take your time with it i really look forward to watching the rest of the series...also i visited your site deviant-art and i would just like to say Happy -Day man too bad you gotta work eh? well anyway great series great ideas and great aimation.
