Zero vs. Iris

This started out as a personal animation, then as I went on with animating it, the negative feelings that inspired the animation left thankfully.

Well... It was a good attempt. The animation is fairly solid. Though there's moments where the characters stop moving, which sorta takes away from the fight. I assume this was supposed to be like the Decisive Battle sprite fights as it seemed like the same style, but this falls seriously short. The battle is definitely needing to be longer since it was really short, and honestly, you should have just left out the last part after the fight. That meme is dead. Another thing is the sudden changes in music. I assume the first part was a nod to the Decisive Battle flashes, but then it goes into the Iris battle music, which feels like a complete tone-shift.

The animation is good. With a little practice and a little work, I think you could make a pretty good animation. It's just a matter of putting in the time and effort to do so. It feels like you gave up halfway through this and just stopped caring. If you put your full effort into another animation, I think you could do a pretty good job.

Thanks for making this review!

I wasn't consciously inspired by the Decisive Battle series for this animation, I started this animation as a personal animation, but I find it cool that it got compared to them since I'm a big fan of them myself :P

The part after the fight was something I wanted to include to show the aftermath of the fight, to show the darkness in Zero's life during that time period...I didn't want to capitalize on the meme, but make it serious again like it was intended to be in the 1st place

The changes in music is something that happened late in the animation, initially I was gonna stick to only the X vs. Zero music, but then I listened to the Iris battle theme for the first time, and loved it so much I had to include it in the animation too...but I put alot of effort into the intro with the X vs. Zero music so I kept both in there like the madman I am haha

Thanks for your compliment on my animation style, it definitely needs time and effort.

Here's another animation of mine which you might like more than this one, if you're curious to watch it: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/715665

Once again, thanks for the review!
