Now I want to watch Full metal alchemist!
The animation was quite choppy in alot of places.
Choppy, the "Story" was boring and frankly I don't think making an animation with humor in mind should be so silent in the background. or maybe be funny.
Alot is wrong with this,
the animation was ok but could've been better the voice acting was pretty bad and didn't make me interested with the character I had more fun reading the comic then watching this, when a thomp falls they dont fall at a nice slow pace they are off screen in a second.
The voice acting, again was bad, thomps are rugged beings of stone. not "Hey Dave did you see that guy at starbucks yesterday.." Mario-cat sound like he was bored and couldn't understand him well. The biggest issue was the lip sync it was off in a lot of places and never really matched.
More on sound, there is a HUGE lack of background music, the mario bros castle theme should've been heard right off the bat, not dead silence for a few seconds then talking. Music is very important and should be used to the fullest in a movie, if you listen to it and hear nothing for more then a second add some music!
Your sound effects were off as well, when the hem-thomp hits the terrible squish soundeffect shoul've played before the other thomp sound played. a few split seconds yes, but attention to detail makes a good video. The scream didn't match at all, if your "voice actor" made that scream they need to not do it anymore, if not find a voice actor that know what there doing for your video. if you really want the current guy make him do more then 1 take of lines, have at least 5 different styles that way you can pick and choose.
I hope you will take these into consideration when you make a new video.
You've called attention to a lot of stuff i've overlooked. Thanks! The music was definitely missing, don't know how i screwed that up :P.
I do, however, collect more than one sample of lines from everyone who does this and i choose the ones i like best. If i don't like them, i splice the best parts of the lines and mush em together to make a good line.
Good till 1:15
The song is really good however when you hit 1:15 it really falls down it losses everything the first minute switching a full genre after a minute of the song is a bad idea, I understand you were wasted when making this but I'd like you to remake this but using the first minute part as the full song.
