It's a long load and long playing (20+ minutes) so go get something to eat, get comfortable and watch it in full screen.
There's no need to watch Morphemon Duelists Ep.1, it won't affect your understanding of this at all.
IF YOU LIKE THE MUSIC GO CHECK OUT THE ALBUM ON BANDCAMP, there's longer versions of the songs on there to stream and bonus content if you purchase it.
Started working on MD2 in late 2006 and put a good 1-2 years of animation work into it and then a futher 3 years of bullshitting about voices and music. I pretty much ended up doing everything, every voice is mine and aside from 2 guitar parts (thanks Hoblit) the music is completely made by me. And somehow, the original script i wrote in 2006 seems to have withstood these 5 years in development hell without degrading terribly (hooray for character based humor!). I hope people enjoy this... seriously.
Big thanks to Tom Fulp and Newgrounds for sponsoring this... i'm so destitute!



ah umm yeah... ummm hmmm.. nmm
well you got the point



The Collective Nosebleed

I loved how when everyone in class saw them kiss, it was like "*staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaare* then *COLLECTIVE NOSEBLEED!!!!!!!*

Very different from the original.

i both like and dislike the new animation style.
the new, more relaxed animation gives some much needed fluidity. what i don't like about it is that it's TOO fluid. The humor-based mutations are, frankly, annoying. It would be much better if their faces could stay the same general shape. It makes you seem like you're ripping off egoraptor.
On to the flip side, you're now making many more camera angles than just the two or three that you had before, and there are many more facial expressions and the like, plus the lines are no longer THICK AS BRICKS. Also, I liked some of your voices for the characters, but (and in the 5 years you probably already have) i generally prefer the voices from ep.1.
Humor is still good (according to the internet) as ever and i like that you fleshed out everyone's personality. I really prefer Kit's new voice and personality to before. I also like how much better the morphemon are animated, although i miss cookie's chin/neck hair spikes.
overall 5/5, 9/10

PiGPEN responds:

I miss Cookie's neckbeard too but it was too hard to do it freehand and keep him cute. Let's just say he shaved it.

I don't even

All I got was Gurren Lagann references. Laughed to preserve my sanity.
It was probably pretty good... my head...

Yeah. Liked characters, sounds, art worked well... Uhm... I don't think I'll ever truly understand this. Either random sillyness or genius - and I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. 10/10 good sir!
