I humbly present to you Takuto: Chapter 1. An Anime inspired Visual Novel Series.

This particular chapter is the premiere of Season 1. Season 1 will be 13 chapters long and will end on October 17th.

A synopsis of the set up for the beginning of the story:

"Takuto wants to become a professional magician, but he's failed the entrance exams for the school he wants to get into 3 years in a row. Returning to Oak Wood, he will try for his 4th year."

You can find the prelude to the series on my profile, or at this link:

All visual artwork and music is original. Thanks for watching. :-)



It's a great concept. I felt like I was watching an animatic from an anime-style video game. You know like the ones they got on the DS. Anyway I like your art style its very pleasing to the eye.

I have to tell you I'm a big fan of a series with a great story and it seems like you're on the right track. I'll be sure to keep up with the series if you keep up the good work.

Hey, thanks for the review dementredvere. =)

I do believe that when you have money there is a standard, and when you don't there isn't. The point being I definitely tried my best on the visuals. XD

Thanks again for the feedback.

Syntax junkie

I personally love your animatic style. It's refreshing to see something so sketchy on Newgrounds. I have some minor issues with your spelling in some places - such as one instance of "you're" spelt "your." Also I feel you overuse certain punctuation marks exclusively; such as ellipsis where you could easily use a comma, double exclamation marks where a full stop would certainly function better. I don't like to wait for the text to scroll to the end. Perhaps you could implement a skip feature? A little more music wouldn't hurt either...

Hello there Ploe. =)

Yeah my punctuation has never been the best. Thanks for the feedback, and I had discussed the lack of music on some parts already. I may put some ambiance in there in some places in future chapters.

Thanks again.

pretty good

even with its low graphics quality and slow speed, which i think you should fix up a little, it has an excalent story line and very interesting characters, cant wait for the next one.

Thanks cheep11. =)

Graphics quality has never been my forte, but as I go I do believe I will get better and better at drawing. My style is personally set up for speed production so that I can get the story out fast and still have it in as good a visual quality as possible.

Thanks again for the review. =)


aside from the bad audio quality in the beginning... this movie was good fix that and your gold... had to give it an 8 cause of the sound tho :/

Hey, thanks for the review punkheadrawr. :-)

The sound will be in higher quality when I get my new music libraries which have just shipped out, so hopefully I'll be able to re-upload a higher quality music and sfx verison.

Thanks again for the review.

Pretty good

you should colour it and maybe spiff up on the drawing just a bit

I'll hopefully get better as I draw this.
