Hello guys! Long time no seen.

This is a music video that I made personality for myself and for the song cause I'm a world war nut and I love history and the history of World War 1 and 2. ( I'm not a neo-nazi )

The song is by "smashing pumpkins" The Beginning is the End is the Beginning" and if you watched the "Watchmen" trailer , you would find this song familiar.


Turn up the volume to get the epic feeling of the song , I had audio problems on this and sound itself isn't the best and close too it.

If running on a slow computer , just click on "WATCH MOVIE" and while watching don't scroll up or down.


If you see a bug or anything problems - message me right away,

Enjoy. ( NOTE ) I'm doing a major redesign on this cause I know it's frontpage material just I know what to fix - so when I repost it on newgrounds again when I complete it

Damn, im pretty good myself but...

I've always wondered what everyone uses to animate all this stuff.

Dude, this would have been an epic Allied propaganda in the '40s.

I like your style, it kicked ass.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Meh, it could have been a lot better.

I gave you a 7/10. My reasoning behind this is that while I really do like the idea of your animation, I thought you spent FAR too much time recycling your animation in the song. Granted, every song has a refrain and so the animation should have "some", but I got really bored near the end when I saw the same planes crashing into each other animation again and again. However, that being said, the things you did good: 1) The hitler picture at the end was great, it really captures the end of that song 2) You animation style is good, I think you just didn't animate enough 3) The animation seemed very immovable, like you were moving the screen around to compensate for limited movement by the actual animation, while this is "okay" for me to give you a 10/10 you would have needed to really animate more. 4) I didn't altogether care for Watchmen, but I did like the part where doctor manhattan is exploding vietnamese people with a giant blue speedo on. That was epic, haha.

Thank you , you pretty much described alot of main points. I'll working on it again and doing more animating and different scene and better and quality scenes.

Very Good

Very good animation, loved the song, unfortunately had watchmen in my head for hours.

Brilliant imagery and a quality vid.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


It's fairly blatant that you have a passion for the history of WW2 and how the Axis rose and fell and your use of imagery just blew my mind. One of my favourite pieces was when you used most of the countries symbols through Hitler's head, the choice of song was perfect and everything flowed excellently.

However, I shall nitpick at several things:

General Hideki Tojo's eyebrow movement was a teensy bit exaggerated, and I was disappointed by how badly he was drawn compared to some of the Wermacht or some of the dictators you drew.

Also, during the chorus when it said "Does it make you happy *You're so strange*" I felt that the two soldiers saying this was really just a filler, and could've been replaced by something other than it.

Otherwise, a good watch.

8/10, 4/5

I'm actually going back into this and fix it cause too be honest - I did rush this and the dude wasn't general hideki tojo , just a random japanese soldier. lol
