"To whom it may concern: I'd love to help you. I don't care who you are, or what you've done. We all want to live by each other's happiness, whether we see it or not. We don't want to hate or despise one another, but vengeance has poisoned men's souls, leaving us in misery and inevitable bloodshed. Our communications have shut ourselves in, and the cries out for humanity is at the highest in recorded history. The misery that is upon me is but the passing of bitterness and greed of those whom fear the way of us being a single entity. But the hate that causes so much pain will pass, and the attacks of all these cultures is a self-destructive act that will come back in one way or the other. And I am here to say, as long as men perish, liberty shall never die. I just won't be here to witness it. Being a Lobster, I always looked for reasoning. And a world with reason, can add progress that will lead to all men's happiness. I am not a man. I am a Lobster Man.
And I'm about to be more human than ever before...
..perhaps now they will love me"

-Leeroy Johnson (aka. Lobster Boy)

I didnt know lobsters were explosive

work a bit more on the visuals and giving more frames to the movement, trust me, itl really show.

30 bucks for a lobster boy t-shirt?

geez i dont know man.. the t-shirt looks pretty crappy.. and this animation needs some work. you need to buy yourself a wacom tablet and fix up those drawings. im sure with practice, you'll be selling lobster boy t-shirts one day.

Kamatachi responds:

For anyone wondering, battay is referring to a very old Lobster Boy shirt that was made when this video came out. To find current Lobster Boy Merchandise, check Kamatachi.com in the store section.

And as for the animation, I made this when I was 14. I didn't have much experience with Flash at the time - everything I made up until 2011 I would say was mainly due to desire of experimentation.


In terms of visuals...this could have been better and it shows.

In terms of plot...well. It depends on your point of view. This is a touching story, but the strangeness makes it difficult to relate to the characters emotionally. On the other hand, if one tries to see it as humor, then the plotline is too sensitive to laugh at.

Overall decent, but needs work.

That was interesting.

A nice blend of a moral lesson and comedy. But, it's weird how he could blow up a sub(shaped sorta like Magikarp from Pokemon) by swimming into it.


Kamatachi responds:

Well I suppose he flew into all the circuits of the sub. And the look of the sub purposely does look like Magikarp from Pokemon. And the ending is supposed to relate to the 1999 movie, "The Iron Giant".

A lot of references.


Odd but cool.
