Sure we can see where you draw a lot of your inspiration from as noted below by some of the reviews, but I still was drawn into the story and can't wait for more. I don't see anything wrong with similarities as long as you still remain original in your own way. I found it very entertaining. The only thing I will say is in anticipation for some of the fight scenes to come I wish the art would be more detailed to make it even more awesome...
A lot of hard work
My two cents: You put thought into this project and came up with a decent story. I agree with most of the reviews on the point about a "cookie-cutter anime," but tried and true works. The art could use a little work (one person mentioned arms being too short), but that's why we practice. The voice work was superb, but people only notice the audio when something screws up.
As far as the critiques, I found that the animation started off kinda videogame-esque, like "Hero, here's your quests. Embark on your generic adventure!" There were times when the villain seemed unnecessarially evil, which works if he were prejudice or sadistic, but he seemed a military thpe, so it seemed a bit off. As for the heroes, they appeared to still be vying for each other's approval, which is fine for the trainees, but that one super strong vet seemed a bit hollow for a character.
I'd like to see how this will progress as a series! Keep up the good work. Animating is no small feat, nor is a project of this scale. Good job!
The designs were boring and sub-par and the idea seemed like it was from an anime. I saw alot of resemblence to naruto and if i could make that connection in the first five seconds well then you haven't really pushed this idea. I am not trying to be mean but it really isn't interesting.
To pokemon, naruto bleach, and every other Japanese anime.
Was that a, to be factor in your series?
i am a fan of most shounen anime, so i wont be surprised to hear that quite a bit
