Greetings and a belated happy new year to you all. It's been a long time coming, but the first episode of the Super Mario Bros. Z reboot is finally here. I did want to release it sooner, but life tends to get in the way at times.

I can't believe it has almost been a whole decade since I started work on this series. For those who are familiar with the original version, this episode combines the events of the first two episodes. I had always intended for them to be one whole episode, but due to technological limitations at the time, I had to split them up.
Fast forward 10 years and now I was finally able to create the episode like I had always truly envisioned. Now with much better quality across the board.
My Youtube account will be my main profile for uploading these new episodes. But I figured I would also upload them to Newgrounds since this is the site where I first made a name in the animation community.

I'm hoping to give the rest of the series the same treatment. But for now, please enjoy the first episode of the reboot.
Thanks to everyone for your support and patience.

Just as amazing as I remember it. I remember watching this episode on Youtube and on Newgrounds. I've seen the original series and it's been a big influence to me and my fanfiction ideas. Because of you, I still maintain my pride of being an SFW (Safe For Work) Anime-inspired Sonic and Mario fanfiction writer. I just hope you're doing okay. What Nintendo did to your Patreon page was absolutely despicable. What they did was greedy. I'm not exactly the most productive person. I have a YouTube channel and I rarely upload videos because I'm just too lazy and unmotivated to make videos every week or every day. I've heard of you suffering from being insulted by your own fanbase and any coworkers you have. I've gone through bullying but as for both of us, video games are our only escape. What you're faced is way more intense and stressful than anything bad I've gone through. Alvin, if you're seeing this comment right now, I just want to say, everyone in your fanbase misses you. We don't need more SMBZ episodes. We're good with what we have right now. If we know that these episodes that bring joy and happiness to us but brings stress and feelings of depression to you, then all we'll do is support you. Stay strong, man.

Dude, i hope you are still alive :'c

Was this an extended version? I swear the reboot didn't have some of these scenes, especially the opening/ending.

Also has it really been three years since this came out? Feels like longer ago.

Dude, more than anything i hope you're ok.
I hope you read this and know we care about you more than the show

nice fist of the north star reference and good animation
