I loved the story. Such an evil little girl. A very smart girl though. At least the guardian sleeps now and doesn't have to protect that yellow orb.

5 stars! The 2D background and the 3D characters, with a simpler color palette went well together...I feel sorry for the guardian.

...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.
