Well, nice to see you again...
I have to say, I see a definite improvement in what I saw last episode. Your use of music is excellent to, (the classical really fits in, or where ever its from) I did like the battle scene, quite ingenious how you did the camera angles and other stuff.
Just a couple of things to work on; Presentation. The opening picture and stuff looks a bit too plain. Dunno the reason but you could always spice it up with some glowing and other effects. Also, for some reason the 'back' button disappeared so when I mistakenly double-clicked forward I had to start all over again... (once again, a bit of glowing could spice up the arrows too). Anyway, good luck on your comic/whatever, Kudos.
You have no clue how difficult it was to take some of those pictures. I had to get in awkward positions, and in those awkward positions the camera would shaaaake...it was terrible...
I'm glad you appreciate it though.
Also, as you correctly assumed, the opening pictures are supposed to be plain. Considering they're always there in the background at at all times, I don't want them to be too noticeable when the show goes on, as I learned a long time ago that flashy stuff is okay as long as it doesn't distract from what it is originally you're looking at. It'll also hopefully cut out on the load time for the preloader, and frankly, the sort of simple but encompassing background motif is something I wanted from the start.
As for the back button, I purposely removed it. I had gotten a few complaints about how the music would fuck up if you used it, and no matter what I did I couldn't exactly fix it: I'm not good with coding. More people have complained about it not being there then not, so I brought it back in 9.
