I found this refreshing and awesome. The pixel art and animation were amazing!

I see some people have issues with the writing. Actually, not even wth that. The story doesn't have a "payoff." But I think that's the point.

See, these two assholes have been doin' this for a long time. While you think at the beginning that they're the heroes of the story, you soon realise that this isn't the truth and the ones suffering here are the goblins.

The goblins want to live in peace, but these creatures were at war w/ humans for a long time. While they've tried to change their ways and be peaceful, humans still see them as creatures they have to fight against.

Elvis and Dimmi represent this way of thinking perfectly: these goblins are "bad" and they have to get rid of them and be compensated. This is what they've done for years and they don't see anything bad. Hell, they even keep a goblin as a slave, threatening to end his life if he doesn't follow their instructions.

Yeah, in the end they don't actually "win," but that's just part of the narrative: for them, it was a bad day because they didn't make any money and they even lost their weapons and more due to their greed. However, the goblins were the ones who suffered the worst. It's just that our "heroes" haven't realise this at all.

Some people have a bad day, others have a bad life.

I won't spoil the ending, but after you watch it, read the credits. That will make things a little bit better.

Absolutely awesome and long animation.

Superb dark humor. Excellent parody on RPG and D&D themes.

The ending was sad, but who says there must always be happy ending? Bad endings once a while make watching movies more unpredictable and interesting.

This movie should become NG classic.

Did I see a Golden Axe reference there somewhere?
