Glenn gives Annie a drawing she likes, winning over her heart. Annie spends the rest of the day trying to coax Glenn into romancing her. Unfortunately for her, all Glenn wants to do is draw.

While it's loading, you can read character bios and look at a drawing I did of them. Once loaded, you can either watch the entire animation (5 minutes long) or select a scene to start from, as usual. This is a LOT more light hearted and cutesy than most of the stuff I've done in the past. It's also very music-driven. Keep these things in mind when watching. I also hid a scrapbook in there, SEE IF YOU CAN FIND IT. Well, it isn't THAT hard to find, but it isn't in an obvious place.

EDIT: I said the second part would be done soon, but as anyone can see, it isn't done yet. Hang tight, it's coming.

Everything in this animation, including writing, directing, animation, music, and all the male voices are done by me. Annie's voice is supplied by Rina-Chan.

Hope you enjoy, and feel free to leave a review! I read them all.


Omg that was so cute.

One of my new favorites! I said aw like every... 10 seconds? That's a lot of aww-ing. Beautifully drawn. I loved it.

Bobert-Rob responds:

That really is a lot of aww-ing. Lets see, this is almost 5 minutes long, so... that's about... 28 aws, I guess. Quite a bit. The fact that you loved it sits well with me. Thanks for the review!


good connection between the two



I have to say, this was one of the most entertaining flashes to watch from purely an animation standpoint. I loved the scene that appeared to be on paper. It reminded me of the opening sequence from Juno, my absolute favorite movie of the year.

The plot was cute and simple, and that guy acts like a 5 year old, which could be why Annie is so attracted to him. Hmm, perhaps the deeper personalities of the characters must be examined to obtain the full meaning behind this intricate flash.

Ok, Just kidding. Still a brilliant job: fun, cute, and well animated, all that a flash really needs.

Bobert-Rob responds:

Well, I'm glad you feel that way. Thanks for the in-depth review!

Wow, unique looking and stylish.

This is very beautiful. And it also proves that people can make a good flash without making a whole use of full voice acting.

Bobert-Rob responds:

And you know what the funny thing is? I usually write too much, or say too much when speaking. So yeah, part of the reason they say so little was because I was trying to challenge myself to communicate more through actions than words. That, of course, means more work animation-wise, but I was able to pull it off, so yay for that. Besides, sometimes you can really say volumes by not saying much at all. Thanks for the review and compliments!

Very good!

But for some reason, it was very choppy animation on my computer. I even tried setting the quality lower!

Bobert-Rob responds:

Really? Hm, strange. I could understand some of the parts that used filters being somewhat choppy, but not the entire thing. Perhaps all the textures? Ran fine for me, though. I'd say try a different computer, if possible. Thanks for the review in any case!
