@04:39wow, that's kinda of sad i can understand though. he's gain all that "heart" to be nothing in the end, it's hard.he wasn't even noticed after all that. i wonder if the artist feels this way sometimes, i know i do. i think the animation is awesome, so is the story.

I really adored your drawing style for this animation. Very dark and sharp. I think your character designs are brilliant.

The thing that made me love this totally is the music. I could close my eyes and just listen to the ending credits song for hours. Beautiful and melancholy. Absolutely wonderful.

Really amazing work. :)
