Depression is something many people have to struggle with in their daily lives. I, myself, have MDD..It's not fun, nor does it mean I'm trying to get attention.

I've gone through hell and back, so this animation means quite a lot to me.

While the animation was still in some cases, the main reason for giving you 5 stars is because of the monologue. It really does hit close to home..So I thank you for doing this.

Amazing piece. Everything was in unison, I really loved it.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I'm so glad people are making things like this, and even more so that they're getting the attention they deserve. It makes me, personally feel a lot less alone... I came across this on a pretty terrible relapse day, and it's actually helped a lot.

Thank you so much for this, and I'm looking forward to the next installments ^__^

This video shows very well what it's like to struggle with depression. I am very lucky that my depression is not telling me to kill myself, but it is with me, every day. It wakes up next to me and tells me that I am going to die alone and unloved, never having anyone through my old age. It is with me every hour of every day, and it is a legitimate, purposeful struggle just to find things that make me happy for a few moments. Even with several things going well for me - having a wonderful family, tons of close friends, being in college - I am still suffering from a great deal of depression, to the point of crying some nights as I fall asleep or some mornings as I wake. It really gets to you after a while. You don't want to fight anymore, you get tired of the struggle, you get tired of playing this game, but to know your opponent makes it easier to play. By continuing to play and understanding that there are some battles you will not be able to win yet, you give yourself more knowledge and strength to continue the war.

This video captured that struggle and the hope for the future so perfectly, and I thank you for making it. :)

The guitar playing is exactly how it should be, gorgeous, and the animation is simple but it works. If I were you, I'd spend some time refining the actual drawing, wich is ok but could be better. That said, you're making an awesome series so far, keep up the wonderful work and don't ever stop being creative. It's always hard not to seem pathetic while handling heavy themes like depression and mental illnes, but it looks like it comes natural for you to just do it the right way. my compliments also to the voice actress, her performance fits very well with the 'minimalistic' animation. can't wait to see what all of you will create next
