Part of the Subway Thoughts series, this episode features thoughts about seeing an old man on the subway. It leads to dark and frightening thoguhts.


You can't use this kind of a concept with such crappy sound quality. It's good, though

I had these thoughts all of a sudden one day while i was trying to sleep. It really freaked me out trying to comprehend non-existence and dying and I couldn't sleep for ages because I couldn't stop thinking about it.

I like the ending line. It will just be like..... *guitar*

good video, very true. ive made a user name just to rate the video. good job.

I've never ridden on a subway before, but I can relate to this. Personally, I have an enormous fear of growing old. Voice acting was fitting for this. And like some previous reviews said, there didn't need to be much animation here, but you did a good job at what was needed.

Personally I don't have a fear of death, but I'm definitely not a normal guy. For basically everyone I'm sure this is a great and realistic stream of consciousness, and with a penalty of one star for my own high standards of-- morality...? Conduct...? Eh, not quite those......... just.. STUFF, I guess-- I'll give this two stars since it's the meat of the video.
In terms of style and the interestingness of the content, I'd say it's top notch! The concept of retelling your thought process on a certain subject is pretty great in my opinion, so I'm quite happy with that: a full star's worth of happy.
Now, as for technical stuff, it isn't really the point of these sorts of things so don't consider my critique that important either! Expressions were pretty good, for what there was of it-- The eyes and eyebrows did a good job of having a fairly varied range of emotion, and one can tell that you know how they work in relation to each other. Not much to say, but if I were to be constructive I'd say try to expand your range of expressive positioning even further. If you were to do more with animation I'd say try working with body language a bit. The art itself seems fair enough, though perhaps a bit washed out in the shading department. Considering the surroundings I'd say that's excusable on account of the shitty subway lighting, but I'd still prefer a bit more depth perception. A star for all this stuff.
So all in all I liked it! Keep up the good work sir ^^
