Viewer Comments

The following are but a handful of hundreds of comments that have come in from viewers who have experienced portions of Minushi released online:

"Beautiful... Simply stunning. The graphics were exceptional, the sound was very well done, and most importantly, I felt a connection to the two main characters and wanted to see them succeed. That only happens with good writing and great design. Bravo."

"Some of the shots blew me away. They looked like bits from Blade Runner they were that good. The voice work was amazing too. The voices captured the characters amazingly well and the music was perfect."

*       *       *

"It's got a great storyline (the idea of giant invading robots actually doesn't seem cliche) with a nice sense of mystery. The art style is unique, and the amount of detail really pays off... What I like most is that this movie goes out of its way to be believable. The characters seem like real people, not just a drawing with two or three character traits. The excellent voices play a big role in this. The fights also seem realistic, and avoided using an overpowered hero who can destroy enemies by the dozen, there's a genuine sense of tension you don't often find."

"Minsuhi is probably the most amazing Flash Feature I have ever seen! The trailer is great, and I can't wait for the DVD to come out!"

*       *       *

"Do you have any plans to release the "full feature" of Minushi on DVD and/or as a download from your website? I'm sorry if you get this message a lot, but I just really wanted to know. I know I'd buy the DVD if you released it. Just wondering.

*       *       *

"I'm a huge fan of Minushi, in fact I've never been this dedicated to a series, not on tv, not a web based one... but minushi... It just keeps getting better and better. You're an amazing writer and animator and you have some great voice actors... Keep up the good work :)
