Here's to living for another year.

This was actually made waaay back when for the NATA 2012 open round. The theme was "discovering time travel".
I didn't have it finished in time and had to abandon it to move onto the following rounds, but now I FINALLY got around to finishing it once and for all! and since there was no more deadline, I decided to spend an extra month or two on it to give it a bit more polish.

This was the first time i'd tried drawing in an anime'esque' type style since i was about 9 haha, I was interested to see how it would work.

I also had to cut quite a few parts out of the final animation to meet the deadline at the time and never got around to putting them back in ha. So the pacing is a little faster than i'd like and some character backstory was left out, but now It's time to move on to other things ;p

Hope you like it anyway!

I wanted to upload this on new years eve but I had some problems with converting the file for NG.
So HUGE thanks to DuDuL for converting it for me! don't know what I would have done without your help ;)

You can also watch it on youtube! (remove the spaces)

Good and a sad story at the same time.

This is the first time a Newgrounds animation has ever made me cry. You certainly have talent, CatFat. The way you used music to set the mood throughout the animation and instill a feeling of nostalgia (without spoiling the ending) is awesome. When that ending hits, everything just comes together so perfectly... I loved it.

I thought this was a really nice animation, best quality I've seen in a while ! I really like the detailed Backgrounds and the characters too. They looked quite manga/anime which is cool, the main character was very lively and emotive and the end was unexpected and gave me goosebumps it also makes you realize why he was so excited about being young , why he stopped to tell his mom he loved her and how he loved that he had more time to do things. great work really i loved it (:
