So this is my entry for the NMAE tournament.

Theme: "The hidden door"

My take: " A little demon girl uses a magic door to visit her father"

I don't know if I'll make it but it's worth the shot.

Many thanks to the voice actresses that volunteered in such short notice.

I really love how it turned out, being the first time I use a voice.

Wow...left me speechless...for a while. Great movie, just make the next one a little longer so you have more time to develop your characters. Keep up the great work!

Neat animation - I like the clean vocals and the feeling that the background music put into it. It's almost like a diary entry.

I would love to see more of this. The character is cute, and honestly, The story has me intrigued. Why did he turn to stone? Is there a way to save him? So many unanswered questions! The art style is pretty decent, and the voice acting isn't too bad either! I liked this one very much.

Damn that was sad!
I'm not usually much into the type of story you submitted, the whole demon anime style, but you handled it very well. You controlled the audio with your animation, and it turned out really good. Even without knowing much about the story we know enough to make the ending quite tragic. You did a really good job, and I wish you luck in the tournament.

That was one of the most touching shorts that I haven't seen in a long time. I feel like welling up in tears since it was such a sad tale. A tale of a little girl who is not so much ordinary as one expects. Being part demon she discovers and visits her father a prolific demon. Seeing him and visiting and caring for him their bonds grew to unimaginable heights. One day she discovers a means to free and visit her father face to face. Only to discover a great loss for her as her father was distinguished from existence. Leaving the little girl heartbroken, distraught.....Alone. Again, it was a very touching tale. You should be a contender in this contest if you were capable of bringing such strong emotions out of me. But I can only hope that you'll make the cut my friend. I'm going to bestow you a 3 in a half out of 5. And a 4/5 in voting power. Visual wise might not have been this flash's strong point. But if you put down the visuals for just one moment and let the tale course through you then you'll see the deep emotional values that this short delivers. Its loving and majestic in its own manner. I hope you've enjoyed this review as I have enjoyed your short. I hope you've enjoyed this review. Good day.
