Try to watch on a pretty good PC! Else it may run slowly for you.

Tried to adjust the quality so it'll load smoother

This is my first real attempt at an animation only flash; I normally stick to games when it comes to flash.
It was a pretty daunting task for me trying to finish this in time as I didn't start as early as I should have.

There's a button that returns you to the main menu in the bottom right corner of the screen as it is playing.

For those of you following along, or familiar with my submission last winter, UM: snowball Holiday, this takes place right after the end of that game.

Maiko is on her way home from her last snowball fight with Luma.

Looks good

This was fairly entertaining to watch and it was good to see all of those voices and songs. The animation was simply gorgeous at least in terms of how the camera worked and the background. The downsides was that the character animation could have been better. It is a little hard to take this seriously when her breasts bounce as she is running. I don't know, maybe if she was hotter, I wouldn't care. This still has a great atmosphere to it and really keeps you guessing.

There was not that much action but you are trying to first set up your characters and story. Congrats on managing to make it into the Christmas 2009 section. This could use some more dialogue as it got confusing. What matters is that it does seem to have an original design and for the most part it works. The transition effects are good too.

Good Animation... Strange Story...

I don´t know if you are telling a story having in mind that people now already the character Umi-Chan... but i don´t really understand the story very much...

The animation is cool, and works really well with the music. Voices are really cool but with a low level was difficult to listen them, even the pretty voice of Nakoruru.

but as Slaanash said... I do not know why but draws attention so that you look to the end. Probally is the good animation, probally the great smoke and the velocity of the animaiton with the music, but the result is Cool. and that´s what matters.

Good Job.

Vortex00 responds:

yeah the face is too long. I had my screen at a resolution that didn't fit my monitor when I drew it. It looked right at the time. But when I finally realized it and adjusted it, a bunch of pics I drew were actually elongated. Including the stuff for this animation XD


Rated 4 / 5 stars

This is a summary.

Nothing was really bad about this, but nothing was particularly outstanding. It's far from the worst thing on this site or others, though, and I watched it to the end, which must mean something. :P
