Alright, I know you spent a lot time working on the humor and stuff. I admit that it is funny but you might offend some DBZ's fan.
Every parodies will have such a problem, especially in this wide community with lots of different tastes. The only way you could supress the negative parts is to apologize or at least to warn the DBZ fan.
In conclusion, your animation can still be funny if you use your own design characters. This not only show your originality in work, but it also shows your creativity. Try to come out a new series with your own character, finish this series first if you like but I'm sure your new series will have a better result than this. Well done, and keep up the good work!
Review on request
Sup? I've seen your movie, it's pretty good. First of all, I don’t care how people hate me using sticks, but I just like sticks, it saves my time and efforts. My English is pretty bad so bare with me for a few minutes.
It's pretty well done though. I can see you work your animation along with camera to get your move, not all but some. I deducted 2 marks from the graphic score. 1 for the uncolored background and another for the uncolored character.
You know why we need a highlighter, because books are mostly printed in black and white form and the reason highlighter has a color is because the mind reacts and focuses more on colored material. And that is why coloring is important, to give a vivid look for your animation.
Lets say that if your animation were put to a top 10 list, with all the other animations, theirs colored and yours not. Now, what will happen to the viewers is, they will remembered the more lively one rather than the dull which I have explained earlier, brains remember more to a colored material. So with no doubt, your animation will likely fail to get their attention. And that applies same to my stick animation, of course my backgrounds are colored, but then my characters were stick. That of course will lower my position.
Now for the sound, I have to say that the sound effects and background music are as important as the graphic and might be more important in certain cases. The reason I gave your sound a 6 is because I heard a Final Fantasy's soundtrack there. You see, it's not wrong to use a ripped soundtrack, but if you used an overused soundtrack, like FF's soundtrack, especially the battle theme. Every time you entered a battle, the music plays, and when the music plays during your movie guess what happens? Yes, the battle scene of Final Fantasy will eventually pop out from their mind, so it kinda distracting.
So, the best way to put the right background music is to put an older movie soundtrack that gets fewer attention. And of course you need to know lots of music, you cannot simply just add a certain music as it must go along with the situation, you certainly knew that too. And songs and music are totally different in category, that is why I used a famous songs rather than the non famous.
Remember, the sound effects and the backgrounds music are very important. They may or will ruin the final result of your animation.
This is up to your own creativity. I know you learn martial arts, but it doesn't mean that you have to follow the skills bluntly. You can always add a little flavor to the moves, out from expectation, especially the main character. I can't say that it's bad, I mean it is good but when I saw Zen in the second fights between the black suits, but it seemed that you only focused on Zen's moves. Take the whole situation into your mind, not only a person, but as a whole.
A typical 7.9 movie out of 10 for NewGrounds’s standard. You might think my animation is worse than yours and deserved to have a better position. Well... I don't know about that... Really...
These are just my opinions, just take it or leave it. Peace brother and well done on your animation.
Complete Ripped Off
You rip it from Kung Fu. Your animation is nicely done, but all the action you ripped from it made me disapoint. So the highest I could rate is a 3. Otherwise good.
