As a huge Macross fan myself I have to say that was pretty good. I liked your use of the movies music and sound effects. While the voices were OK I noticed that they mispronounced some words, but that pretty forgivable.
The visuals while the artwork was pretty good I don't think that they moved as well as they could have. But still a good job.
Oh and there are several sequels to Macross - the unofficial sequel 6 part OVA Macross 2, the music video Macross 2012, the TV series Macross 7, the 4 part OVA Macross Plus, the 4 part OVA Macross 7 Dynamite, and the most recent the 5 part OVA Marcross Zero. All of theses are really good and you should check them out if you haven't already.
Glad you liked it. I know all about Macross' recent history, with all the OVA's and stuff, and I also know about the 25th anniversary coming up. Hope an announcement for a new series comes!!
How the hell do you pronounce Muh-kross anyway? :P
A huge improvment
This is a tremendous improvement over the first one. Your hummer is spot on, your animation is very nice and clean, nice use of music and sound and voices.
But it dose tend to drag on a little to long in some spots, but those moments are few and far between so it doesn't matter to much.
I also really liked how you never have Link talk, great touch.
That was really amazing, that really made me think a lot. Very interesting take on the origins of Santa, very very good.
I was really surprised though, it wasn't your usual animation style, you usually go for the nice clean and crisp anime look. but here you used a much more gritty western style (correct me if I'm wrong).
Don't get me wrong though I have to say that this is your best thus far, maybe not visually, but in terms of story, pacing, music, and message this ranks supreme for your stuff. And its great that you can do drama as well if not better than comedy.
i can't find the words
no words can describe how much i laughed the first time i saw this. while the art isnt the best it kind of adds to the rediculasness of the piece, but it does have great voice work and that helps. i stil cannot believe how funny this is, i havent laughed this hard sinse i first saw dbz in a nutshell. great job.
Great animation, great sense of humor, decent story and you got a pretty great short here. there is room for improvment but not much, keep it up. oh and i loved the use of the Final Fantasy music, that was a great touch.
Good but Not Great
i have to admit that your animation is second to none, and while your animation has been getting better and better your stories have gotten worse and worse. i mean your not doing anything different, just a bunch of eye candy with music, and its starting to feel like a music video. but if you worked on your stories then you would have some truely spectacular stuff here.
