Reviews for "Earthquake Girl"

What the heck?!

It was soo weird yet interesting .
Id rather not have so many by standers get killed though...


That was very interesting, she is a very cool character. She reminds me of the main female character from Fooley Cooley. Very good job, you should develop this character a whole lot more and i look forward to seeing how your work evolves and improves.


Well, I love this movie. The problems were what the previous person said and how it seemed-like I was on drugs a bit. Her care free personality conflicted with her rash actions and violence, or did you do that on purpose? whatever the reason may be, it was wonderful. Please continue with your amazing work.

Well done, if a bit pretentious

I really liked how stylized this cartoon was, and how you kept to your typical drawing style despite the fact that you were doing a lot of frame by frame work here- and hell, I like how it was animated for that matter.

My only qualm is with the plot. Or rather, how you treat it. As far as I see it, earthquake girl gets the order from the wealthy dude in charge of the architecture firm to start blowing shit up, and then she does it. She's insane, a force of nature unrestrained by reason- hence "earthquake girl" as a title for the movie. Then, after she's finished destroying the whole city, we see that the whole thing was orchestrated by this evil rich bastard who "loves his money" and who intends on profiting from this cataclysm. The message (and of course, I could be missing something here) is simple: rich people are evil and will do anything for money, even going so far as to be complicit, or even support, the loss of many human lives in order to make a profit.

I like this message. I agree with it. the only thing that bothers me here is the fact that you seem to obscure this message on purpose, devoting the majority of the movie to senseless violence and a string of red herrings which draw the attention away from the key plot points. Not only does this diminish the quality of the message, the moral of the story, as you put it, it makes you seem like you're just trying to show off, trying to make your movie seem more "deep" by making it hard to read into.

Whatever, regardless of my rather minor complaint, I love this movie, and I'd love to see you do some more long-term complicated animation like this in the future.

It was first and foremost animation practice so the story section of it had to take a backseat....but the fact thats it there at all shows i care <3. And the fact that its harder to get doesnt make it any deeper than it is but it does show that some people care enough to figure it out (like you <3). Also i linked the setting to a real life event (the name and flag are clues) for people who like to figure stuff out and learn things....im crazy like that.

And i have started Morphemon Ep2 which will be animated more like this then its predecessor.

It was very well done, and had a good feel to it

The graphics were very nice, and the whole flash had a good vibe to it. I loved it
