This is a "Character Story", which is a prequel and character side stories that will not be shown in my series/story "The Other Side".

This is the Monster's "Character Story", who is inspired by Naruto.

Music: Nier OST by Keiichi Okabe

I love this story; it definitely hit me on a sensitive side. The dialog along with the pictures really made me imagine myself there, esp. when the grandmother was telling the girl stories. I also like how they betray how a typical crowd formulate presuppositions then act on their suppositions once they got together. The only thing that threw me off was the ending... it was such a sudden switch from distress to rescue per-say... didn't like that. But overall I love this movie and the style of animation, keep up the good work and plz make more or never stop :D

thanks! :D

Maybe it's just me, but I had some trouble with this animation. It seems as if you wanted to provoke a sense of mystery, but it didn't seem to work out so well. Her power was never really explained, even explaining it metaphorically would have been nice. There was no real antagonist, and there were no names to work off of. I just felt lost, especially when there were music pauses to transition to the next song. It really killed the flow. The ending was a total head scratcher. Period. I did enjoy the music choice though, and the storyline was actually ok, although a bit choppy. I know this is a character story, but it lacked character development. Even though I may sound a bit mean, don't take offense. You did a great job, and should be proud of your work, I will definitely check out more of your work. A solid 3.5. ^^
