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.

Her head and shoulders....and knees. First off, good job in making the legs not look like penises. xD! But! They are very....unproportionate. I'm not saying that a little meat looks bad, but to her figure and face, just looks like she has chubby legs, with a slim top...Scratch that, just went back to the first scene. I swear she doubled in size when she started running xD (Well, Maiko sounds like a ditz...Mmm, just wasn't expecting a voice from her xD!) Ah yes, the knees. Very important when running....As if you don't add it in, it just looks like the person is moving like a penguin. You know, waddlin? (though she's wearin white stockings, I guess you can't really do much about it...Or can you?) Anyway, on to the shoulders. They are flat and almost non-existent. It makes her movement and when she's on the ground, seem very awkward. I'm comparin the Maiko Fanservice and UMICHAN:maiko v2 with this.....I guess the art looks better in motion than V2, but her overall body looked better. And the example of what her shoulder would be for M-Fanservice. And finally, Her head....Oh her head. You made it too ovular, compared to the circular ones of the past. I'm not...Well, yeah, it looks pretty bad honestly. Her forehead is very....Screw it. Maiko Glamorous or Fan service's head figure looks loads better than the one used in this current one. But, yer improvin. And yer actually releasin animation So keep up the work, don't fall down on the art quality (xD!)) And good luck on the future.

It a lot easier to draw a static image than it is to animate one ><
I'll get it right eventually... or not... hopefully so.

Thanks for the review.

Pretty good,

This is a bit whacky but hey, I like anime style and this is entertaining. Only thing I did notice (like some previous reviews mentioned) that she looks a bit odd while running. The music and voicing is great. Overall, it's worthy of a 10.

.......... What the hell indeed.

@ Clownkillsyou9

Seriously. . . im surprised at the fact that i am still surprised by the sheer amount of retards on newgrounds.

And i for one thought the animation was fine good in fact the detail is amazing and each frame really screams out talent.

As for women of that size?.. dude. . .

I Actually didn't notice it and she looked fine to me.. but i guess that's why women around the world are sticking fingers down there throat and not eating or working there ass off to look good for men.

I Actually prefer a little meat rather then skin and bones that's a turn off for me really.

Sorry Quincy just people today are ridiculous. . .
*She doesn't look "FAT" she looks "Human"

i liked it

i watch anime all the time so i don't think it was slow or anything i think u got the setting good walking around at night, the flash back and everything just felt right. i think it would not have been as good if u just plain out started with the action. the only thing that was weird was when she was running it kind of looked like she gained 50 or so pounds. nice job on the animation looking forward to your next submition .

Yeah I probably need to start with some action.. T_T;
The perspective on the running was kind of hard for me to do.

Thanks for the review.
