Haha, so I saw the Ghost in the Shell episode and noticed the striking resemblance between that episode and this animation. I would like to point out that I did not intend to write a story based off that episode.

Much thanks for the front page!


(I know it's a cheesy title, but it explained the animation well)

Read the emails at the "Replay" screen to uncover some back-stories.

Inspired by Ghost in the Shell?

Pretty decent graphics and animation, sounds were good too, and there's an obvious plot. Only room for improvement is in the quality of said elements
Also, this seems like it could have been inspired by that one episode of Ghost in the Shell:Stand Alone Complex? If it was, that was a pretty good episode :P

Actually, it was not inspired by the Ghost in the Shell episode, but I've been getting a lot of reviews about that. So I will go check it out. Thanks for the review.

Kind of an interesting turn of events. The doctor honestly believes the robot's expressing love to him, when in reality she's repeating off the soap opera in front of her. When you think about it, I get the funny thing you did with that, although it's also sad when you consider how much the Doctor does genuinely cares for his creation.
Onto the flash itself. The animation could be a bit better. Going from frame-to-frame, it looks a bit stiff. The voices also felt kind of phoned-in (like they were actually ON a soap-opera).
Besides those minor issues, it is a pretty good flash. Have a nice day, and I hope to see more from you :)

samsonloftin responds:

Thanks, I never voiced a serious role so I'm still practicing on the voice-acting front, but in a way it is sad. Although the emails at the end explain a lot about why the doctor feel in love. Much thanks for the review, I'll make sure to improve in my next animation.

If i'm getting the message right this is good.

Is this how you feel about girls today? It's kind of true in some respects. So much love today is based off of media. People forget there are other unique ways of showing you love someone.

I wasn't trying to send any sorts of messages about women...or robots. It's just a simple love story, but I appreciate the review. :D
