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!


You're such a Romantic...

I was wondering when part 2 would come out. (Thanks for putting the prequel in this animation as well. It helps it flow better.)

As usual, you did an awesome job and never brought down expectation. All the concepts that you had in your animation were as clear as crystal, at least to me. Both characters were portrayed accordingly to how their personalities were (I figured that you based Glenn off yourself since that's how you are in your other animations). Some of the other characters you threw in there, i.e. the teacher, weren't actually necessary but after reading the scrap book I can see why you did.

Your story line was superb. The characteristics of the scenes and additional characters were smooth and complimentary. The beginning was slow and simple (as it should be since you have to build to your climax) and was very homey. As the animation progressed the speed of it ascended as well. You had many viewers climbing up the steep hill with you but instead of all of us rolling down to the finish you walked us through it and "held our hands" in the process (if that seems confusing just say so).

And your music... It was awesome and you choose appropriate music for appropriate scenes. I enjoyed it. =D

Phew... I wrote a plethora* of comments. I must really like it. You're a sweet-heart at heart. The theme was sweet and simple.

Thanks again.

P.S. This time I'm not just rambling. K.I.S.S. (Keep Is Simple Stupid) must be your style, and it works marvelously for you. I am curious about the pants though. =]
*plethora, for those who don't know, means alot

Hah, yeah, I suppose there's a part of me that is. I'm so glad I went ahead and did this idea, as it really came out beautifully. Glenn is somewhat based on myself, if only a simpler version of myself. And yeah, some of the background characters weren't really needed, but it did help set the background up. Also, if I ended up turning this into a series or show or whatever, it'd be a nice way to say "Hey, I remember those guys, they were hanging out in the background!". Most of them are concepts for a more complex storyline if I ever get the time to make it. And, uh, the pants are more or less a nod to the girl who inspired this animation in the first place. Thanks for watching!

Your best most sophisticated work yet!

What can i say man you've just topped all your other works.

Brilliant animation, nice accompanying soundtrack and cute story.

10/10 crayons :D

Okay, Up untill now, I disliked Rina Chan's voice.

It's not abused in this flash, and it sounds nice. Also, nice to see you're putting out. Ifyaknowwhatimean


Excellent flash. Animations were smooth, transitions were creative, and story was interesting if a bit slow at first. Almost perfect, undeniably superb. My only qualm is the slight lack of closure at the end, but that's probably what you were going for: a feeling of confusion and an opening for the viewer to continue the story in his/her own image. Not really my thing, but it worked seamlessly so bravo.

Bobert-Rob responds:

Yeah, I know the closure bit kind of irked some people. I personally liked the ending, though I suppose it was kind of weak story-telling-wise. I just liked the irony it presents to the story as a whole. Leaves Annie with a bit of a hint as to how she should approach him from now on, but whether she'll want to or not isn't made clear. Leaves room for a series to begin if I had time to later. Who knows, right? Thanks for watching, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

wow man

that's beautiful man
