This is a big masterpiece, I love it.

Well that ending hit me like a ton of bricks, damn. RIP to a legend, the man that inspired me to get into animation.

I remember having the opportunity to watch this animation in 2011, and it deeply impacted me throughout the emotional journey of the story. It left such a lasting impression on me that I could never forget that moment. I wish I had experienced it as one of those who watched this project here on NewGrounds and VGDC during its two-year duration. Reading the comments on Part IV, I can see that its conclusion was highly anticipated.
This animation continues to amaze me in how well it has aged. If I did not already know it, I would never guess that almost 11 years have passed since the release of the first part. I was genuinely surprised and saddened to learn later that Randy Solem has unfortunately left us. I never had the opportunity to meet this person who, in some way, left a mark on my childhood. However, his significant contribution to this site's community is something that will never be forgotten and remains alive here, attracting more users who will discover and be captivated by this work as much as we were when we first saw it.

I love happy endings. I hope you yourself are happy in the afterlife.

When I was 7 years old, I remember watching the first part of this series and crying a lot when Mario was killed and everyone around him gathered at his funeral, devastated by his dead, especially Luigi. Then, what followed was an epic revenge story that started with Luigi, then with Mario before the bros finally got together to kill Wart once and for all and celebrate the return of peace in the mushroom kingdom. Plus, for a sprite video series made between 2003 and 2005, the animation still holds up to this very day. To end this shortly, I just wanted to say thank you Randy Solem for creating these awsome videos that shaped the childhood of so many Mario fans on the internet and may you rest in peace.
