I liked the concept behind the series, and the way you managed to get all the narratives to intertwine, it's kinda rare to see serious projects on newgrounds, even rarer to see someone follow through and complete their series.
The drawings were fairly simple, I feel the series may have benefitted from a more "serious art style". On the other hand maybe not, there was a lot of dark humour in this and I think the art implemented may have been helped with those elements.
I like the use of colour in this, the black and white definitely gave the submissions a darker tone, and in a way gave a subliminal "good vs evil" theme to your work.
The animation is relatively good, there are spots where some of the movements seemed to be "off", overall though I can appreciate the attempts at the complex frame by frame animation.
Excellent use of music, though I'm not sure if that piece is public domain, and would have preferred to hear something from the portal as well.
This was an ambitious project, so congratulations on it's completion!
I hope you'll continue submitting challenging original material to the site, this was a nice breath of fresh air, and you show immense potential.

Well we all suffer from envy. I think a little narrative would have been nice,but I nly saw this one.
How ungrateful that they live there lifes.
I liked your series, and the fact that you actually finished it is commendable in itself. Congratulations, this piece does bring every other animation into one context, and that was very cool.
I hope you don't fall out of the grid: we need more animators that create things with purpose and story!
Thanks, I do plan on making more purposeful stuff. Or make fun of Video Games. Whichever pays more.
Against your advice, I didn't go back and watch the earlier parts. So here is my review from that point of view. I liked the crinkled paper background thing, it gave the animation a pretty neat feel throughout, and otherwise the animation was good but not what I'd call stellar. Functional and clean! Although I tend to think that anyone who uses Ave Maria to make a point is an asshole, it seemed to fit this piece...but only barely. Kudos for going there, but you walk the line with me. Other than that, I'll go back and check your earlier work. Good one.
I didn't use the song to make a point. i used it cause i like the song. (the visuals were kinda trying to make a point though)
