Could change opinions of sprites animations
I thought this was a perfect example of how to make a sprite right. Even though people (such as I) generally feel that using sprites should get less respect in comparison to other flash makers, there is more to making a great flash than just the artwork.
The skills it takes to make a story clear and compelling is the same regardless of which medium is used to portray it. I found this clip really captured my attention, and left me wanting more. The music perfectly matched the scene, accentuating the feel of the story.
I must say, I would've preferred voice acting, or maybe less obtrusive and "prettier" subtitles. I personally feel there was a good balance of storytelling and action, so I hope you won't go over the top with action in the second episode and sacrifice story. There are hundreds of action sprites, but this has the potential to be something else completely.
(Side note: Though some commenters are saying that Shenron's 36 hours of Evil limitation is BS, I figure that Goku is pretty much the most good being in the whole Dragonball universe, so it's gonna take more than Shenron to quell that!!)
Total respect for you, Tactical. I don't know if any sprite will ever be a 10/10 rating... too much prejudice. But you might be able to change at least a few people's opinions on sprite animations.
