Inspirationpeak.com provided me with a story (but an unknown author) about a woman and starfish.

Watch and be inspired, and maybe you too will learn about how the little things in life can truly impact the bigger picture.

Thank you!

Refreshing moral

This was such a nice little flash, simple, but a pretty story within. I'd never heard of this story before but i'm glad i have now, i'll remember it.
The music was really nice to listen to just in itself, just really relaxing.
I noticed the speech bubbles looked like final fantasy ones too ^^.
All in all it was a sweet little flash with heart.

Nami-Oki responds:

Thank you very much! ^^
Yes, I'm guilty of making the Final Fantasy Bubbles >< XD

like a pearl in an oyster

just stumbled across this...I knew this story...and the thing which is funny is that, i just heard it in a movie today, think it was "the guru" with eddy murphy, or something, anyway...

It's a beautiful story...it's about the fact that little things can mean so much. Although most starfishs have to die it nearly uncountable how much lives were saved by this girl...(why do I keep interpretating, without reviewing?)

Anyway...as I told, it was a beautiful story and no matter what people say I think it's harder to make movies from someone else's Idea then your own, the fact that it was really touching, although I knew the story, proves that you did well, with a little but...there is one scene that lokks as if she walked over the starfishs...

As two last things which doesn't even have to much to do with this flash as such....
1. Do more of these, I love them

2. I don't write much reviews....did about 8 maybe...I only do them when I find that a submission rages out of the mass...so...did 2 reviews for your flashes, which means, from now on you have to live with the fact of being my favorite flash artist ;)

Nami-Oki responds:

Thank you very much! That means a lot lol, I really am touched that you'd say such a thing :).
The scene where it looked like she was stepping on them lol, I see what you mean, but I meant for it to be like a storybook ( I kinda failed... xD)
But thanks a lot, that's really sweet!
I'm working on another inspirational flash right now, it should be done pretty soon ^_^. I'm not sure how people will like it though, it's a bit different... We'll just have to wait and see!


One) She cannot save ALL Starfish
Two) That Movie was EXCELLENT
Three) Can you make more of that?
Four) What is, when you make series of Movies like that, ALL Movies with Starfish?
Five) Please response, and understand, Starfish are Animals!

Nami-Oki responds:

1) Yes.
2.) Thank you
3.) I'm working on more inspirational stories right now :)
4.) What?
5.) Ok xD lol

just plaine cute...

you know what... i think this animation is really good XD I love its cute story and deeper-then-it-looks meaning. keep up the great work... you know i want to see more more more!

Nami-Oki responds:

Thank you very much! *Sorry for the late response*
I'll definitely be bringing more! :D

Simple, but nice

It's a rather good flash and story. I enjoyed the original story myself, but you did a very nice job retelling it. Music cuts off a little early at the end, a bit abrupt, but otherwise, very nice.

Nami-Oki responds:

Thank you. For some reason the animation runs fine on my computer, I wonder if that's a browser problem? But anyways, thanks a lot for reviewing!
