Pico Day

Author Comments

I gave myself a week to complete this, just finished it seconds ago. I thought this would be an interesting idea for a short. I was sorta inspired by Neon Genesis Evangelion.
If you haven't played Pico's School, this probably will make very little sense.
I have noting else to say.

pico was depress because of what happed in 1999 poor pico

Perfect but uh...what happened exactly?

Well Jesus, this one is actually an intricate entry for Pico Day. Even though there was a similar concept in earlier animations, this one was more unique and dark. But I personally felt discouraged by the ultimate Downer Ending. Still in full honesty, this animation is very interesting, and provides a purely dark aspect for a possible future held for Pico and Friends. Seriously, never have I ever expected something like this. Christety, Christ, Christ, Christ. RyanStorm, if could give you 10, I would. But still, I'm not really a fan of depressing endings.

...no hard feelings

I wanna crawl inside this video....not even possible

This was... Wow. Like many other commenters, I don't know where to start. First of all, I love the backgrounds, which seemed like they were painted. This was a much darker and realistic "ending/epilogue" to Pico's life. It was depressing, but horribly accurate in that it's very unlikely for a kid who killed many with a shotgun to grow up perfectly okay. Next, there was the progression of events that involved Pico running into people from his old school (let's admit it: the world is small) and get flashbacks of his past that given even someone who hasn't played Pico's School an idea of what happened. Reasonably, his old peers are frightened by his appearance. There were many things I loved about this, especially at the end when Nene appears to have finally decided to confront Pico when it was already too late, showing how timing is often messed up in life.

Thanks for making such an awesome animation and sharing it with us. I'm... going to go sit in a corner and think about life, now.
