My new feature film project is a live-action narrative called "Refrain." It's a story of violence, isolation and retribution and it's got lots of music and ninjas. Follow our progress at

Thanks kids, it's been fun.

not enough information to know what it is about for those who just got this sent to them in an e-mail Anima sometimes is strange but if this is the best of the movie then it isn't even worth a rent, but if it was a first attemp then it deserves higher marks

You are a horrible storyteller...

Ok I am not going to say anything about how you could have probably just added that to the other chapter and get rid of the whole 19 chapters thing. I am also not going to add in about how the animation seems so damn rigid...I am just going to touch the storyline.

The whole point to a story is an end, and to be honest you have left this story without and explination at all about the giants, the world in its self, what is going on with the military....there are sooo many unanswered questions.

You are horrible at telling a story, through out your whole thing you have rushed sequences over explained certain aspects while under explaining the important ones. You have made a world where there are giant robots who have arrived and run around the world....then you make a miltary lose its logic and go against the friendly giants...then you have some sort of "tinkerer" go after them, which in the end you have defeated after all that time by a simple rhyme. You did not explain anything you did not give a conclusion all you gave us was some pointy chinned girl with a bruised eye that seems to never heal and move around on her face, with some stupid life moral or whatever it was, that was a complete and horrible ending!!!!

Overall? Rather forgettable...

So, having watched the entire series, I'm pretty unimpressed. Not with the technical side of the production so much - I absolutely acknowledge the time and effort it must have taken to create Minushi, and certainly praise the author for having the skill and willpower to finish the project. The animation and artwork, while not overly spectacular, are above average and sufficient to express the author's ideas. The first few episodes were promising, but the project quickly began to go downhill.

I felt there were a lot of flaws in this work: the storyline was meandering, insipid, and felt like the author lost his handle on focus and pacing about halfway through. The story didn't explain any of the mysteries and questions the earlier episodes indicated would be important, and the Tinker/medallion subplot that initially seemed to be a key feature was turned into a laughably meaningless and irrelevant side-issue (as I mentioned in my review of episode 18). In addition, the tedious, drawn-out military action, the childish good/bad distinctions, and Trixi's repetitive whining to her brother about how the giants "weren't bad" were poorly thought out, especially as in the latter situation she'd only just encountered them and there was never a straightfoward answer given as to whether the giants were actually good, either. Also, the author wants us to believe that *nobody* in power ever considered that the giants might not be overtly hostile? Seriously?

The voice acting for the main characters was okay for the most part, but the secondary characters (especially the woman in the destroyed town earlier in the piece) ranked from bad to awful-beyond-belief.

As for the ending, it is no surprise that the speech given in the epilogue is a generic, cheesy, cornball "after school special" message, mostly because the story itself doesn't really have any meaning to it, or expressed within it.

I will finish by venting for a moment: For the love of all that is holy, whose idea was it to use that god-awfully amateurish, offensively off-key wailing as the end-credit song? I had to make sure my ears weren't bleeding after hearing that untalented tripe.

Will keep an eye out for other projects by this author; I have faith that experience and feedback will lend themselves to superior results in subsequent narratives. ^_^

uh, that was

like that was a really crappy ending to a semi good series, and would haave to agree with some of the other comments, like the animation was a bit whack, the characters barely had any developement and the ending was just a complete waste of time. better luck next time man

This was bad

The art was bad, the story was bad, the music was bad, and it looks like a lame ripoff of dog from Half Life has made an appearance in the end, maybe he's been in the whole series, I don't know, the fact that you're expecting people to pay for this is stupid.


This is bad
