That was a wonderfully done cartoon. It's too bad I had no idea what was going on in it. I was thinking it was supposed to represent something, but I didn't understand it. I like how it doesn't take the easy way out and has most of the main characters die. That's a pretty realistic depiction. I saw the bull attack the monster and was confused by how it was only half done.

Wow, this new format has really changed how I view these things. The animation was just gorgeous. I love how you manage to show much emotion even without dialogue or even faces! The monster is designed especially well. I can't believe I missed this when it first came out.

That music was quite incredible, they way it flowed with the storyline was excellent, and I really enjoyed the pause sequences in-between each scene to show the shift in day, but also to show the shift in mood. I do believe that the tongue on the monster was unnecessary, and that the way it died made no sense what so ever. If the first rock hadn't gotten it, I have a hard time believing that multiple rocks would be it's demise, especially since you perceived the monster to be magical. Though, my comments may seem a bit rough, I did really enjoy this animation and it's storyline. A solid 4.5 in my honest opinion. Great job.
