edit: daily first, front page, and a shoutout from Tom, thanks! You cats are alright

the story of a voicemail that gets all mixed up in other people's lives.

huge thanks to codeblackhayate for finding the time to voice this after asking her with less than 24 hours left in the round! (and for doing such a great job, too)

wow! This is amazing. First of all, the animation was great and I like the style that it was done in, second, I like that the voicemail never explicitly stated anything, but it was instead implied in the animation and the tone of her voice. 5 stars!

So touching... By the way how I interpretated it, I think I can relate to it. I felt kinda like this when my frist love dumped me. I was almost depressed for a while and people worried about me, although I didn't realize I was acting weird.

Loved the art style, and the dialogue writing as well.

Gah, the feels.

A very effective combination of animation and sound. The "dirty" art and animation style really goes with the torrent of emotions the characters are feeling, and the minimalist art forces us to focus on important details. The emotions that the animation is trying to portray are very complex, and an integral part of the human soul and culture, and yet a tragic part of life that no one wants to go through.

The voicemail message (being the only spoken dialogue, which I thought was a good choice) strikes close to home for me as a person who tries to be "that friend" for a lot of people. It means that the animation doesn't just speak to victims, but also to friends and family who are outside looking in.

All told, this is a short Flash which nevertheless speaks monuments. For that, I think it's worthy of a 10 out of 10.
