From Homestuck, on my webcomic,

Obviously makes more sense if you are caught up on the whole story, but hope you enjoy anyway!

edit: Thanks to those who've watched it and left comments. The small file size is just the loader, the rest of the movie is about 50 MB, hosted elsewhere on NG. Tom is graciously helping me host this file for my site, and since it's already on here, I thought it would be cool to drop it in the portal.

If you're watching this and already read Homestuck, thanks for following. If you're new to it, hope you like it and will consider checking out the story. There are many animations of this sort, making much more sense in context.

It made absolutely no sense, but was interesting

Nothing really made sense at all through the whole thing, granted I obviously haven't read the comic you refer to in the description but with no dialogue at all and a bunch of random stuff happening there's no way to understand it.

That said, it was still pretty interesting to watch and some of the visuals were pretty cool looking.

I have a question though. How did you get such a long flash to fit into only 293.2 KB of space? It felt like a 15 min. flash and that's an incredibly low filesize for something that long.

I can't read your webcomic to save my damn life

But this is pretty fucking incredible- okay evidently from my score I'm not floored because it's minimally animated but I assume this perfectly fits with your homestuck theme.

I'll read your webcomic one day just to see why people love it so much.

Why is this on Newgrounds? It is an excellent animation, but it shouldn't be here. It is an important part of the plot of something that is not even partially on Newgrounds. It just shouldn't be here. If this is not just stolen, I don't know what the guy who makes Homestuck is thinking. Is he just messing with people by showing an awesome animation to try to make people watch it to make them read the comic so that they can finally know what's going on? If so, I applaud him for finding such a manipulative way to get more readers, but I will still hate him for it.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Interesting, but insane.

Just curious, does this actually make sense even if you have read the comic? Nonetheless, it had a lot of cool imagery.

Not what I was expecting

All of my friends are crazy about Homestuck, and it's all they ever talk about. I tried out the comic so I could participate in our friendly afternoon chat sessions, but I just can't get into the story. I feel that Homestuck is for extreme fans who started reading when it first started, and have stuck with it all these years. It's not entirely a bad web comic, it's just hard to really get into it if you are just starting out. However, I admire its success and popularity. Surely its author knows what he's doing, and he's doing it well.

Now, regarding this animation, I was a little disappointed. My friends told me that Homestuck's art style improves in recent animations and pages, but from what I've seen, it feels very mixed. I know multiple artists participated in this animation, but only after I checked the credits page on the Homestuck website.

To put it shortly, I was expecting a movie with actual movement with a consistent art style. It would be easy to say that "that's just Homestuck's style" and that "I wouldn't understand, for I am not a fan." Well, waiting for a big file to load is not fun, especially for those with a slow Internet connection. When I heard about how "Homestuck's new movie crashed Newgrounds cause it's so awesome!", I got really excited about this movie. It's just a shame that it was mostly a slide show of inconsistent art styles tuned to really nice music.

I am not a fan of Homestuck, and will probably never catch up enough to call myself one. My words are based on an outsider's perspective trying to fit in, but was pushed away by the intense fans and overly-hyped movie releases.

I do, however look forward to future projects by this author. I'll just have to remember to stay updated and not get left behind.

There's some debate, but overall people find this review helpful
