Well it's finally out after a huge amount of putting it off. It comes with a good number of mistakes too but overall I'm satisfied with everything (mostly) and I learned several what-not-to-do's for later. Hope you enjoy :D

PS: Compare the sounds on this to the last one.
PPS: I doubt I'm going to be able to keep up the series. I had to wrap this one up to make way for an animation I'm going to be making with a friend. Check news for more info.
PPPS: The special comic at the end is a short parody of the Japanese Mcdonalds food chain. Youtube has plenty of... resources for research in that area if you want to find out more.
PPPPS: Big thanks go to xKTxThief for allowing me to use his char in this movie :] You rock man.


Very nice!!

The animation is very good, and the sprites are really cute/well-made.
The pace of the scene is a bit fast, the text is a bit hard to follow.

Pity there won't be more of this, it could be great!

People find this review helpful!

Thanks for the review :] And that is one of my primary problems in animating, I'm trying harder to address it though :]
There may be more of this but for now it's going to be hard for me to work on 2 animations on top of everything else. I'm glad you like it though :D

Smooth sprite animation!

For being sprites, the animation is great. I was so drawn by the fighting sequence that I didn't even notice the decreasing health bars as it progressed.

I hope to see the following episode soon. Good job!

runescapeop responds:

I'm glad I did it right this time :] That one big problem that became clear towards the end. In the coming animations i gotta put more thought into timing and interface :] Thanks for the review~

Very good improvement

had alotta fun watching this for how short it is.
keep up the good work, interested in where this goes

runescapeop responds:

Thanks for watching :]
Although I haven't really been doing anything with flash (at all) recently, I'm thinking of going back to work at it, maybe integrating a different story. Who knows. :]
But thanks again for watching and reviewing ^^

Is Maple Story really like that?

Nice short story. Maybe you could have simplified the plot a bit?

Also I didn't know you could make sprite stuff out of maple story so cudo's

runescapeop responds:

Thanks ^^ Yeah with any video i've made with a story I've encountered the problem of making a simple story with lots of action. But I'll focus on that two on my next video :] Also I use a special program called Maplesim that uses graphics from the game to create your own sprites. Makes my life easier rather than using hand drawn art and photoshop (I can photoshop but i can't draw for my life xD)

not bad

The sprite animation was really nice, but the story just didn't grab me.
still, not bad.

runescapeop responds:

Thanks, I was kind of at a blockade with the story, so I agree it's not so good xD
