I have to say that it's about time you finished, and it's great you did everything you could to finish this series. Several animations of one whole series with voice work couldn't have been that easy. It's quite difficult for works like this to be considered decent despite not being AAA material. That still doesn't belie the work you put into this, and for that you deserve a lot of credit.
This was just incredibly bittersweet. It's all too easy to want a happy ending, but not all happy endings carry such an emotional impact. Betrayal, survival, and friendship are things that are definitely quite a punch to people when you work them into one. How Xero was forced to kill Omega at the end and live on his own. How Xero was finally going to join his friends after one last fight and leaving someone to fight for him in his place.
Really, it's says a lot when animation on a budget can still put a tear in your eyes, especially after all the action and fighting and the amount of testosterone in these works. I think the only thing I can criticize is how the voice overs were often drowned out by the sound effects, but it's not that bad an issue.
I honestly wish you continued to do more, showing the new character taking on the mantle of destroying the one responsible for this new world order. But that's on your own time and when you feel like it. Still, it's quite an amazing end to the series.
Congratulations on not only finishing it, but once again making the front page. You've earned it.
Sheds a single, manly tear*
Thanks for the review :D!
Glad you loved it, as I didn't want to go by the "they killed everyone and went for a few beers" kind of ending, so I took the gamble! (some people hated it haha).
A new Bunnykill was rather unexpected. lol
I have to say, I was not planning on seeing another Bunnykill after this, but that only made this one more enjoyable.
And it's a good thing you explained the differences in this one as opposed to the other one where a supposed character was already presumed dead. So that makes this less confusing.
I really like this approach in terms of the art style. The whole MGS and Grand Theft Auto-esque feel you have to it. It always seems like ninja are some staple in this series.
As for the ending, for some reason I totally knew it was going to happen when Snowball fought his friend at that point. I had no idea why, but I just knew it was going to happen. That didn't make it any less shocking to see, because you have a once untouchable character meet his match.
Anyway, can't wait for part 2.
An Excellent Masterpiece!
I can't believe how much time it took for you to make this, especially you doing most of the work.
Anyway, it was well worth it. One of the best flashes I could ever see, along with another all-star, Super Mario Bros. Z!
I loved the voice of Perfect Nazo; that is the most EVIL voice I could ever possibly hear, especially the evil laughter when he was transforming to his perfect form heard across the world! Hell, even some TV shows or Movies can't match that, IMO!
Man the fusion forms, their attacks (we know that Shadic's light-speed attack on Nazo OWNED!), and the ending...oh man, I don't know how to describe it in words!
You did an amazing job, and I hope you do best on any future works be it on Sonic, DBZ, or even your own.
Oh, one last thing...I get the feeling there is going to be something after this. That scene after the credits seems to hint that...if it doesn't well, doesn't matter.
I'm glad you enjoyed the movie and thanks for the review! I love the Hyper Lightspeed Attack scene. Hyper Shadic was getting beat long enough.
That hidden scene was just to tease the viewers. I may or may not come back to this, but I do want to make my own original series.
Awesome game man
Awesome game. I kinda thought there would be a fusion of Element Saga and Fear Unlimited.
Also your artwork in the game is amazing, Have you ever thought of becoming a member of Deviantart? You should become a member.
Anyway keep working on Fear Unlimited 2.
And keep working on Element Saga ch 6, we've all been waiting for that game in a long time.
The best game I've played on the net.
As the name says: this is the best game ever. Man I can't wait for Element saga ch6.
Are you still working on that game man? I don't wanna wait too long.
Great Ass Game, man!
Dude, this is one of the greatest games I've played online. Great Enemies, bosses, and characters. It's a 2-d version of Devil May Cry 3.
I Have one question though: are you still making Element Saga 6? The Element Saga series were cool as hell, and I've been waiting for a long time for the 6th Chapter. Are you still making it, i hope so.
Anyway keep making these cool games man. I wish i could draw those characters like Jalapeno (I may not have spelled his name right, sorry!)
You just managed to give Nintendo the middle finger to their musical works by adding lyrics to a lyric-less song and out-doing them in the process with a much smaller budget and simple free-time!
Seriously, this is amazing. This is something that makes me rather disappointed that Nintendo, with all its creativity and work put into their games that they never thought about giving some of their better works some lyrics to add to the music's tone and feel.
This sounds even more like a lullaby than the ones without lyrics, as it makes you even more wanting to fall asleep to it's soothing tones and meaningful words. This sounds like something you would hear in a LoZ game, as although the lyrics have no reference to the games (unless those of you end up going the extra mile to make references out of any of the lines), the words sounds like something you could easily hear them saying in-game.
This is really up there, probably higher than even Nintendo's works. And you deserve having this on the Best of the Week, if not the Best of All Time given the final product.
Now imagine in Nintendo were to step up and go this extra mile like you. Con grads
Actually I was thinking of Hyrule when I wrote the lyrics "Waltz under moonlit trees" I was referring to Faron Woods, and "Sail all the wondrous seas" I was referring to Wind Waker. Things like that. But I'm glad you liked this so much ^_^
Never was much a metal fan personally...
I don't really listen to heavy metal. Not entirely my type of music.
But I bet you're asking, "what's that suppose to mean?" It just shows how much attention this is attracting for those who don't listen to the genre.
I gotta say, the original Advent Children version of this song could do without the orchestral parts depending on the segments of the song. What you did here is exactly that. Not that the orchestral parts were bad, but that the heavy metal parts of it seemed to overpower it.
So what about your version? I gotta say, it still captures the essence of the original while being a whole complete genre of music rather than two that tried to fuse together while one overpowered the other.
I will have to say that the vocals should've been clearer, either they should've been higher in pitch or louder so that you could hear it along with the insturmentals. The omen part is practically the main melody of the whole song no matter what genre you take on it, but it got overpowered by the guitars. That is what I felt set back your score.
All in all, from a non-metal fan to a metal one, this is a really great song.
Makes me want to sleep...
I'm seeing most of your music as Heavy Metal, but this one here surprised me.
I gotta say it's really beautiful. While this is a bit minor, the violins sound a little...awkward. They fit, but at times they seem a little too echoey. But maybe that was intentional.
I will say one thing tho. That last bit with the electric guitar was even more of a shock. I was listening to this whole song while typing this review, and then the guitar part came out of nowhere. Nice man.
