An animated short of two elemental mistresses fighting over nothing.

Thank you everyone who viewed, and everyone who voted. -Front Page Representin'-


I found that the short was excellent until the cop out ending,
You were able to give personality to the mistresses in such a short time and the art style is unique, if it didn't end abruptly, it would have been an instant fav for me

That was pretty cool. The Spy-Crab made me laugh.

Not a bad start. The artwork and animation style are both well done, and the background music selection was satisfying.
I felt that the lack of voice acting didn't necessarily help or hamper the flash in any particular way; Yes, it would have made everything alittle clearer, but given the simplicity of the flash, it was fairly easy to grasp anyway.
As to the lack of plot others are complaining about; It's an interesting short about elemental fire and water: Two diametrically opposed elements that cannot work together. Of course they're going to fight.
The reasons I can't give this delight a full 5, or even 4, are:
-The unsatisfying conclusion. After that much build up, it suddenly cuts away and tries to scrape by with a quick joke. I was, as were many others apparently, left wanting something alittle more substantial.
-The lack of substance. Even as a short, this is remarkably short, feeding back into the above problem as well. It wouldn't have been so unsatisfying if there was more padding around the middle or end.

Looks like it was released yet not finished. There are plenty of voice actors who would work for free to get thier work exposed more. Right from this site for example.

There really needs to be a real plot. Even if its planned as short, a plot helps give a reason to watch it.

Anyway those are my thoughts.

made me smiel i liked the end the most but try big bang and ur sperits i think it will be better all in all tho im still chukling poor poor crab
