Strange day for a cat to be reincarnated as a fish. This animation has a captivating pull. I admit I was unimpressed from the start, but there was enough details for provoking curiosity, which I ascribed to the character and setting design, and my audience was pulled.
As I watched, I could not overlook the slow framers-per-minute rate. Although the design is appropriate, it is not something at which an individual would look typically for aesthetic appeal. Because of that, It is similar to a work-in-progress than a finished, consciously made decision when one has to look at each individual frame.
Aside from that, everything else is pretty much solid. The ambiance is well established. The sound effects are realistic enough, though at times the bubble SFX is a bit too prominent and the accident could have been made more dramatic. The plot is satisfying, having an understandable exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. And the concept makes for a great series.
I would personally like to see more of this.
So open to interpretation. I love it!
I am sure glad the creators of the game tried to maintain realism in the game by including the tree, because, you know, a territorial oak hellbent on killing every lifeform by draining its energy and performing kamikaze is completely normal, a menace only guts can withstand.
But enough of that --- You demonstrated your perspective very well within this short animation, and I like that you chose to conceptualize a seemingly insignificant particular in the Mother series. I can sympathize completely, especially due to the animation's drawing style , which not only provided emphasis on the subject matter but also your purpose. (Although the Ness drawn in the loading screen looks slightly awkward with its rather large chin)
Yeah, the Ness in the loading screen was actually my first attempt at drawing him. It's not so much a huge chin as it is me trying to accentuate his cheeks, which didn't quite work out. I decided to just make his head round in the final animation :p.
Thanks for the review!
