Girls who make out with dogs are not cute
Dearest Mr. Valentine-
I would just like to point out that this movie doesn't feature a love triangle. A love triangle is when three people are romantically interested in each other in such a way that includes all three of them. What you have here is a movie about a couple of people that are romantically involved, and a stalker who doesn't know when "no" means "no", and will go to absurd lengths to prove her sick and demented
"love". In a sane world, this would be a horrifying character already, but no, you had to take it a step further, and introduce bestiality into the equation. There is no rationalization - she frenched a dog. SHE FRENCHED A DOG. "Oh, but he was actually a dude!" you say, but no, that does not excuse it. She played tonsil hockey with the little guy BEFORE this fact was made clear, which means that she was FULLY WILLING TO PHYSICALLY LOVE A DOG.
You sir, are the devil, and I salute you. 10 stars.
Well done, if a bit pretentious
I really liked how stylized this cartoon was, and how you kept to your typical drawing style despite the fact that you were doing a lot of frame by frame work here- and hell, I like how it was animated for that matter.
My only qualm is with the plot. Or rather, how you treat it. As far as I see it, earthquake girl gets the order from the wealthy dude in charge of the architecture firm to start blowing shit up, and then she does it. She's insane, a force of nature unrestrained by reason- hence "earthquake girl" as a title for the movie. Then, after she's finished destroying the whole city, we see that the whole thing was orchestrated by this evil rich bastard who "loves his money" and who intends on profiting from this cataclysm. The message (and of course, I could be missing something here) is simple: rich people are evil and will do anything for money, even going so far as to be complicit, or even support, the loss of many human lives in order to make a profit.
I like this message. I agree with it. the only thing that bothers me here is the fact that you seem to obscure this message on purpose, devoting the majority of the movie to senseless violence and a string of red herrings which draw the attention away from the key plot points. Not only does this diminish the quality of the message, the moral of the story, as you put it, it makes you seem like you're just trying to show off, trying to make your movie seem more "deep" by making it hard to read into.
Whatever, regardless of my rather minor complaint, I love this movie, and I'd love to see you do some more long-term complicated animation like this in the future.
It was first and foremost animation practice so the story section of it had to take a backseat....but the fact thats it there at all shows i care <3. And the fact that its harder to get doesnt make it any deeper than it is but it does show that some people care enough to figure it out (like you <3). Also i linked the setting to a real life event (the name and flag are clues) for people who like to figure stuff out and learn things....im crazy like that.
And i have started Morphemon Ep2 which will be animated more like this then its predecessor.
An excellent conclusion to an awesome series.
First off, I am very proud to have had a part in this, the animation of my favorite flash series. I'm glad John let me donate some work.
Funny jokes, great voice acting, well animated, well drawn. You really have improved on your frame by frame work. It's madhouse shit in this one. If you don't get frontage for this, it's an ABOMINATION.
That's it. Rock on! Erik the Juiceman forever!
im sorry but this movie is sooooo offensive i mean come on jesus was born and decempter 25 evertyone nos that and what the fuck doe rabbits hav 2 do with jesus u R goin to hell

p.s. Thanks for helping me on Episode 8, Kitty. I love you!
Hobos sometimes drink their own urine to survive.
Excellent "screw you" to the audience, the plot, and all common sense... Just like the real thing! You really captured the classic style of kiddie anime with this episode, and ending it with the entire group bathing was a nice touch.
That, combined with the fact that you not only mocked the series you initially lampooned, but mocked your own loosely established "rules," makes the episode overall surprisingly cerebral.
You really should edit these together to form a single episode and post it on your site. Watching them consecutively, I get the feeling I'm missing out on some of the flow that the whole thing might have.
*Note: much like yourself, I too hold a sentimental love for kiddie anime like Digimon. I'm not really that cynical.
Rules are for dorks.
Im working on making a full length version but its a hard job especially since flash can only hold 16,000 frames in a timeline before glitching out (the final edit of Morphemon ep1 plays for a total playtime of 21 minutes at 24 frames per second...do the math). Also the whole trouble o getting it to not lag the eff out.
*<3 Digimon. It's not as kiddie as many think though...its kiddie but still not something that wouldnt be interesting to an adult (like Pixar are always aiming to do).

Simply wonderful. Your genius increases with every submission. I love your style and your style-of-animation, it is wonderful .:::) -that is adam smiling, if you cannot tell.
As with all things like this, you'll either love it, or hate it. If you're a fan of random, often nonsensical humor, then you'll love this. If you're lame, and hate anything that isn't overused Simpsons jokes done by final fantasy characters, you'll hate it.
Oh, the redesign of the virtuous man is great, as is the explaination.
Can't wait to see more.
Zombies are very entertaining!!1!wiggidy-one111
Ah, how I love zombies. What wonderful creatures they are, with limitless possibilities for fun!
On to the review! I'll do the bad first, so the last things read shall be good!
Well, the voices were kinda hard to hear, even with my speakers turned all the way up. Also, sometimes the music overshadowed the person who was speaking, which made it difficult for me to understand what the speaker was saying. You still seem to be having trouble with sound glitches. I don't want you to be insulted, but you have tried putting your sound in a movie clip, aren't you? I used to have similar problems with sound in MX too, but that movie clip trick worked awesome for me.
I've never been a fan of that Iwillpress style of lipsync you use but that's no big deal really. Lipsync is a boring, tedious process and I suspect that you make these movies more for the enjoyment of yourself and your friends then for any sort of pathetic recognition from the pompous patrons of a bloated flash portal.
The character models are improved dramatically from the last one, though they could still use a little work, maybe different angles for the heads.
The only other bad thing is that loop when they're running doesn't look quite right. Or was that the joke?
You have improved a lot in almost every facet of your animation skillz... Er- Skills, since the original series. It has been a year, I guess. The humor was a large part of this. It's rare for a Internet cartoon to get more then a smile out of me. Some favorites:
“You are welcome, I timed it.”
“Look, I can cross my eyes”
Also, that scream that dragged on was hilarious. I loved it whenever the characters “smiled with their eyes” in typical anime fashion.
ZOMBIES ARE GOOD
The music was very well-suited to what was happening on screen. The zombies look good. The cutaway transition looked cool.
Egh. I've gone and written far too much again. Let's try this again.
gUD J0B R U GONNA MAEK ANUTHER???
"I suspect that you make these movies more for the enjoyment of yourself and your friends then for any sort of pathetic recognition from the pompous patrons of a bloated flash portal."
That is the best line I have ever recieved in a review! BEST LINE EVER!
The poor background loop was bad because it is the same loop I use for moving cars and looks poor when slowed down. You could argue that I should have just made a new loop but I am a slacker.
I'll make a new Zombie Nation if I ever get the motivation.
Nobody gets satire anymore...
Funny, clever parody of all those shitty character cash-in cartoons. But it seems that about 9/10 people who review this like it as what it was making fun of in the first place.
"OMFG TEH ANIMATATION WSA BADDFD!!!!!!!!!!!!1"
You draw really well, and the little bopping of the heads when the characters are hopping up and down looks nice. You might work on the sound, try a pop filter of some sort. Not that I'm one to talk.
This is possibly the coolest things I've ever seen. That close up on that dudes lips as he says "Secret Pleasure." followed by that mad fantasy was great.
I've been a big fan of Erik the Juiceman ever since I first saw episode one of the Mike saga on an unrelated web site. It seems that with every episode, Mr. Perazza manages to improve his ninjaskills and refine his off-the-wall sense of humor.
Cutting directly from the battle field to a scene with Erik urinating on breakfast for no reason at all is a perfect summation of the Juiceman sense of humor: Make as little sense as possible while poking fun at how ridiculous things have gotten.
Let's ignore how much the animation style has advanced since his last episode (A lot!) and keep this about the humor. What Perazza is able to do is rare; He's random without being idiotic. Too often, "random" humor sounds something like this: "Shoe~! Michael Jackson! Look at that duck! LOLOLLOL!!!!11!" While this may be amusing to the 9-year olds who write it, it's annoying and without substance to anyone else. The first scene of Mike ep. 7 gives us a man who has to use the restroom desperately running through town screaming with the song "Move, B*tch" playing in the background. If this sounds immature to you, it is. But that's why it's funny.
The voices have improved, as well. There's a definate clarity that now seems missing from his earlier episodes. It gives the animation a sense of professionalism.
Awesome movie. Looking forward to the next one.
