Great addition to the series.
The animation was superb, vastly improved from the early episodes whicn weren't too shabby to begin with. Your visual style is clear and distinctive, instantly easy to recognise and fits perfectly with the type of humour you have going here. The slight facial animations and movements really paid off, gave the characters that bit more feeling to them.
The voice work was great. Never have I heard Speakonia or Microsoft Sam or whatever robot voice that was used to such a good extent. To take a cold, stunted robotic voice and draw humour out of it is definately worthy of praise. CB's strange voice is by now endearing and fits the character. The rest of the voice work was swell too.
Feels like I'm gushing, but I really do love your work and I look forward to the next part coming out tomorrow. I don't understand why you wouldn't have just put them both in one part though? The runtime might have been too long for the average viewers attention span I suppose. Still this episode didn't feel any less complete and it made me laugh, keep it up, look forward to the next one.
What were you trying to achieve here?
Half the time I was watching it I wasn't sure if you were parodying the whole series because there were hints of self-awareness over the type of reputation this has garnered and the particular audience it appeals to.
On the other hand there was even more awful attempts at humour, bad voice-acting, horrible comedic timing and even WORSE animation than the previous installments. Don't know how that happened. So this lead me to believe that instead of a self-referential ironic remorse over the series you've created, it was infact a weird hybrid trying to please everyone but infact just alienating more people.
Let's face it, at least before you had an audience. It wasn't the best audience, they weren't a credible audience that knew anything about animation or comedy but they were an audience none the less. You should at least cater to them rather than make it clear that you're aware and making fun of the lowest factor of people your flash series appeals whilst at the same time producing the same old stuff that they gobble up.
You know that you're not liked and that you're not liked by some of the greatest animators and artists on this site, No one likes being hated obviously, but you either stop churning out the garbage that makes them hate you or you ignore them and at least try to make something better for the people that like it in the first place, not create a shambolic inbetween which pleases no one.
Brawl Funnies said it best. Do you want to be known as the person who took a shit that everyone loved?
Now I didn't want to be too negative writing this, but I was actually surprised that it was worse than the others, though that's not to say you or anyone involved in this can't do better. Make something original rather than constant parodies, don't write if you can't write, don't animate if you can't animate etc. Play to your strengths and strive to improve them.
Whilst the flash was loading (took a while what with the all the anime porn I had downloading) I noticed all the negative reviews calling you out for attacking a beloved artist on NewGrounds and that the only good short was the first one.
This was when I knew it was going to be good.
Pretty ironic that the same audience you rip apart for gobbling up every new installment of Brawl taunts is sitting there drooling as the joke flies over there head, only to perk up interest at the slightest suggestion of tits or sex.
This was actually funnier than most of the other parody type flash thing cartoons that are made and for the most of them the animation was far better than Brawling Tauntings. I especially enjoyed the one in the balloon, gave me a good chuckle.
There's nothing wrong with doing flash about video games of course, if they're done well, which Brawl taunts is not. Why it's so popular confuses me, maybe it's something to do with a girl being involved.
Anywho I must be off, shan't be watching part two as there are forums I need to be arguing on over if Cloud having sex with Aeris is canon and there's only so many hours in the day FUCK IS THAT KNUCKLES MUSIC STILL PLAYING I THOUGHT I CLOSED THAT WINDOW DAMN

Very good idea
What I liked more than the fast-talking and the pupilless eyes with huge eyebrows was the perceptive nature in which you picked out key elements of the gay which I found to be highly amusing.
Also the old lady with a lemon.

You get points for having a Super-Sucking Vacuum Team.
Great April Fools' Submission, it didn't lack anything in quality and was fun to watch. Was really disappointed that I didn't get to see Sonic making out with a young boy as I am a raging, disgusting, pedophile furry, but otherwise than that I enjoyed it very much so.
The Tails though part at the end was good, I almost X'd the page when the credits started rolling though. It was slightly difficult to hear and I was expecting a screamer of some sort. Dancing Knuckles was clearly the highlight of the piece anyway.
Hail to the Glorious People's Republic
Much More Like It
This episode seems much more reminiscent of your earlier work, I love it. It was funny, fast and witty. There was plenty of subtle animation in the characters that seemed to work well, I mean I don't remember them blinking so much but it's nice to see little touches like that added.
Only major gripe is the length, though it is funny and I did like it, it's hard to give it a really high score because of how long it was. Perhaps it'd be better if you submitted several shorts together, but hey, who cares about scores. It was good and that's what matters.
Keep it up, I'll have to go back now and watch all the episodes I've missed.
P.S Grats on 101 submissions
Great Part Two, Fun To Watch
It's rare to see a 20 minute Flash and even rarer to have one consistently hold the attention of the audience without trailing off or losing focus since it's no easy feat to accomplish, so great work on that, you deserve kudos for it. The flash overall, whilst in my opinion still not being as good as the first one, was enjoyable to watch.
The animation has definately improved and although it's still not amazing, it's good and better than previous installments. The lip-syncing was very well done and not cheaped out on so props for that as I know how tedious it can be. However the backgrounds didn't seem to have to the same attention put into them as the characters, sometimes being little else than a gradient, but for so many scenes and being generally fast-paced I can see why it'd be a waste to spend ages on a background.
Voice work was of a high quality most of the time, aside from a few noticeable mic pops which could've been picked up on. The voices are really what make this flash so it's good to see them done well, if obviously cheesey.
The story is obviously following the first Power Rangers movie so what can I say about that. It's a well done parody of what was, looking back at it now, an awful movie. The pace that the story progressed though felt like it could've been faster. The speedy pace of the original was what I really enjoyed. I can see why you'd want to put more care into it but don't let it lose it's steam. As for the for the unrelated scenes that were crowbarred in (like the Sonic scene), I don't know about those, they feel forced and uncomfortable. I mean it can be a funny joke, but just plonking it down anywhere doesn't work as well as placing it within a context that fits.
This can't have been easy to make and it's clear that there's a lot of love put into it from everyone involved. Keep it up, I'll be waiting for the next part.
Great first episode
Very stylish, everything was well drawn, the characters were original and the animation was smooth and consistent. The voice work was good and I liked the constant change of pace, there was never the same shot or background for more than a short period of time, which was great.
Only criticisms would be the 'random' character Kook. Characters that are there just to say random words can usually just come off as annoying, not always, and he didn't all through the piece, just some parts. It doesn't work just to have a character say something irrelevant without rhyme or reason.
Other than that nice work, look forward to part DEUX.
well, in part 1b he doesn't say totally random stuff but instead he says things to make matters worse or just awkward...
Well, it wasn't Awesome...
First let me just say that for the most part it was fairly well animated, consistent and smooth throughout most of the flash, there's not much to quabble about there. The voices too were well done and good quality, for the lines they were given, and were one of the better parts of watching it.
Now, first to address the glaring issue of Egoraptor. Yeah sure it's hard today to make a video game parody and not be accused of copying him. In most cases it's wrong and people are just doing what they have always done on NG, take the piss out of Video Games. However the similarities in this flash are just too blatant that it's clear it's trying to be an 'Awesome' flash. The art style is extremely similiar, as well as the composition and the pacing in general. You made Grand Theft Awesome so I assume you have respect for the man, but it's better to create a tribute rather than pass off a style as your own.
The jokes themselves were lacking. I mean racism? Seriously? None of it had any relevance aside from the fact that Louis is black. At first I thought it might be satire on the fact that Louis is a stereotypical black character, except he isn't apart from the occasional 'DAYUM'. I'm sure drawing any black character with a bucket of KFC will ilicit a few laughs from the knuckle-draggers but it's hardly a worthy trade-off for the integrity of the piece. Aside from that there were a few giggling moments, dick jokes and projectile vomiting, sure. Just seems like there could've been so much more in here since there's so much more to the game. Maybe you didn't want to alienate people who hadn't played the game, but the people watching this will probably have played it anyway and being included in 'oh yeah that bit haha' moments that only people who have played the game will get is what make Video Game parodies good.
The selling of T-shirts and warning not to steal it also comes across a bit arrogant considering you have no idea how popular it'll be yet, though I'm sure it will be. Merchandise should be there to cater to demand, not just slapped on in hopes of making a couple of extra bucks.
It could've been something good, but I just wasn't seeing what would make this stand out from the rest of the crowd. Either that or this is actually a clever satire and I've fallen for it. Either way, you're a great animator and can do better than this.
read the racism comment. its poking fun at the racists themselves on the internet, not black people.
I AM ANGRY I SAW PHALLUS
I liked the familiar sounds and characters cause I can relate to them and i think its really funny cause i was like playing this the other day and i was like 'lol what if they happened' and you do it and its really good so you get 10 thumbs up xd
