I have never have ever commented on a video or game here, for the whole 9 years I've visited this site. But your video made me comment... Fucking fantastic. Hopefully you have posted this everywhere you could. Hopefully you got an A+ on this. Fantastic job.

...You'd think after the hundreds of fights the Guardian had gone through, a little dagger in the eye would just wake him up and piss him off... but, reality aside, an amazing animation about how looks can be deceiving. Have five stars and a cookie.

I can see why this has a score of 4.50 at the moment. It's too bad you were so close to winning the Daily and Weekly 1st places! Well, this is a great cartoon. I was drawn into it mostly because of how awesome the animation is. Honestly, this seems like something that you would see before a feature length Pixar film. I'm glad the short cartoon is not entirely dead.

I thought the creature looked like one of the angels from Neon Genesis Evangelion. I think its name was...Zeurel? I was NOT at all expecting that ending. That was what really sealed the deal in me giving you five stars. It's like a Dr. Seuss book, only more grim, at least at the end. The narration is great too.
