Excellent story telling and stylish art!
This animation is amazing and so is everyone the helped out with the voice acting as well. These guys have a passion all their own.
Now, this is a solid 8 out of 10 and it deserves nothing lower.
First off, the animation is stylized in a way that is unique and very pleasing on the eye while still delivering off emotions and actions fluently. Next, the voice acting is not only great quality, but the voice actors put some real emotion into things and make it that much more believable making it that much better. Then, you have some excellent script working going on here; although a little dodgy with the running sequence for a moment, and losing a sense of tension, it recovers quickly and the pace is on queue with what's happening on screen.
I have two highly valid and solid reasons why this is not a 10 out of 10.
-Nothing is perfect
-a few minor tweaks
There is also a third.. and that being merely that there isn't a series of animations that lead up to this so no one that hasn't seen the comics on Zeurel's Deviant Art page will be quite lost at first, but its coherent enough to understand and enjoy without much backstory prior to reguardless.
In all honesty I think that Zeurel and the whole crew back on Deviant Art deserve a great deal of support and praise for the amount of effort, skill, and heart these guys put into doing all of this, it really is quite amazing. These guys work together and do these matches and get better at art, animation, storytelling, but more importantly all these guys have fun. Its like a corner of Deviant Art has become this close niche of people and its something.
Zeurel, as an artist myself, it is inspiring to see that many people work together to do something this.
Great Job Bro.
Solid 8/10 ... Arkas out~
