NOTE: This is the full animation! So you don't have to watch part one, it's included in this! Just click the 'play the movie!' button. It's named 'part 2', but it's really the whole thing.

Glenn gives Annie a drawing she likes, winning over her heart. Annie spends the rest of the day trying to coax Glenn into romancing her. All he wants to do is draw, though.

This is the entire animation as it was meant to be seen! It's a whopping 13 minutes long, so don't watch if you don't have that much time to spare. I updated the first half as well, rendering 'part 1' obsolete. So if you haven't seen it already, don't bother, it's included in this. (unless you want to watch it anyway, to see what's different between the two versions or whatever).

Hope you guys enjoyed this, I spent about 9 months-ish working on it (of actual work, anyway), so I hope it pleases! Happy Valentines day!

EDIT: Thanks for the front page!



It's nice to see it complete. I saw part 1 back in '08 and was a little anxious to see how it ended. Great job as usual. Don't know too many guys who are that oblivious, but that's what made it funny and kinda cute. Again, great job and keep it up!

very good

quite funny and good flow of animations but the music was kind of random dont ya think>?

Bobert-Rob responds:

I, uh, suppose? I'm not quite sure what you mean by random music, heh. Thanks for watching, though.

i just love it!

Egoraptor below me pretty much took the words out of my mouth it is a good flash and god story the boy can take a hint that the girl likes him i wouldn't say its orgininal and i'm not saying it isn't i've just seen that type of thing a few times before but they all have different story lines and this one is by far the best and i love your toons last weekend i only just figured out they were HERE! because i saw Don't Wake robby so i clicked on that then i clicked on your pro and i watched everything you have put on NG and i just love it i really like this too :D P.S the lil bastard can draw better than me D:

Bobert-Rob responds:

Heh, well, I'm glad you still enjoyed it man. I know it isn't perfect, but I still found enjoyment in it. Thanks for watching!


This was really neat, it kept me watching through the whole thing. There were lots of interesting things going on!

Gripes though... the sound was terrible. Not the quality or anything but the actual sounds. There were way too many out of place HMMM and HUH and AHHH's that didn't really need to be there, it could've just been silent and it would've been more effective to express the feeling via the animation. I mean, the fact that the dude says some things, and yet they don't have any dialog is really strange and somewhat unsettling.

Additionally, the music was awful and didn't set any sense of mood. It was reeally out of place.

The tweened camera work was also somewhat nauseating, especially when Glenn starts stealing napkins. There wasn't any fluidity or consistency to the camera movements and they weren't really necessary at all to begin with in my opinion. In fact, most of the character's movements were very tweeny and it was a little annoying.

These things, I think, really kill this animation hard. You have something really good and cute going but it's really not as much of a joy to watch as it should be. As much as I'd like to say that the story is excellent and interesting enough on its own, these flaws really bring it down to a point where I really wouldn't suggest this to anybody, even though I think the story is good.

You're definitely an able writer, but everything else falls really flat. I hope you keep making toons though, you're definitely one of the more interesting authors here!

Lots of people find this review helpful!
Bobert-Rob responds:

Hm, well, I suppose I can see what you mean about the motion. I'm not exactly a frame by frame kind of guy, so I can see how it'd all become kind of bad looking after awhile. At least you liked the story though! And I will keep animating, it's what I enjoy doing most. Thanks for taking the time to watch, man!

First I thought...

Is that guy retarded or something? But the story was nice. The sun was funny and it seemed like the workers at the restaurant talked the most. Other than that, this will be in the front page in no time!
