That was just mean never trust women even their childish size. It was a good short film though and great animations. Keep it up I hope you do.

wow I will never trust the look of a sweet innocent little girl again, damn that was a creepy story. I liked the narrative, kind of made me think of an ancient story but then the story has a futuristic style to it. Nice

Such a beautiful story, and great animation style too :)

I really enjoyed this, the animation, the narration, the music...... Very professional. Deserves much praise!

Aww, I always sympathize with the monster. Not with the little girl. Never trust the little girl... never.

Great animation though. At first it seems like a cliche (even though I just knew it wouldn't be) of the monster gaining a friend and them *stab*. Oh well, dem mixed emotions. 5/5
