Ah yes, Starter Squad: The Movie. Saw this entire series on YouTube, and I have a feeling it will do pretty well here on Newgrounds as well.

I love this so much

Dude, this is like a freaking movie! I think this may be the longest submission on the entire website! I used to think it was "Super Smash Bros. Collab". I think that entry's been deleted! Too bad! It was awesome! Still, this was great too.

It was great to see the story develop so well. I just loved that "Human human" bit. I'm glad they don't appear too often. Haunter was really funny. Missingno comes up a lot in stuff like this. Wish it was in the anime.

When I first clicked this, this was definitely not what I expected... Great work!!! It's so awesome and refreshing to see actual good animation and storytelling in 2019. I hope that more episodes will come out soon! :D

Keep up the good work
