Who ever "barefoot" Dumbo is, is a jackass for lowering your score. So I give you a 10 in return.
Overall I think its really more like an 8 or 9. I think the graphics/art direction is gorgeous. Its not my favorite song in the world, but the animation matches it well and works beautifully.
This is high quality flash! Keep at it, because I want to see you top this.
Heart wrenching yet confusing
This review is for all five episodes.
At first I thought it was a little emo-ish and self involved. The whole "I hope someone will notice me" aspect kind of turned me off, but at the same time I kind of know how that feels deep down. And I'd had my share of moments wondering if 'she' would smile at me. So despite my instinct to turn away from the emotional content, it actually pulled me in more. It really made me feel and remember a lot from the past.
I enjoyed how the relationship progressed. It was all very touching and heart felt. I loved how things turned out in the end....except for the very very end. Everything tied together really well, but the dude at the end just came out of left field and left me thinking, "What the hell just happened there?" It seemed a little unmotivated, and tacked on.
Overall I think your emotional punch was quite powerful. The overall style was recycled, and I wasn't keen on the paper-grain texture that everything had over it. The music was clear and perfectly choosen. And if it weren't for the twist ending, this would be a perfect 10. Regardless, its excellent work and you should be proud.
