I wanted to do a quick animoot, so here’s a scene from one of Sebastians heart events–He’s not even my fav but I really wanted to do rain SO–!! (It’s quite rough, like all my animoots hue)
I accidentally made it really similar to that Ichimatsu gif I made a bit ago (turn and bounce) but that’s what I get for not planning anything lol. I might make a separate blog for this art since it lends itself to being very self indulgent, but we’ll see!
wow I feel almost embarrassed for linking this but wharrer
Kono Danshi, Ningyo Hiroimashita is The Little Mermaid except BL, I think. Sorta. Kinda. There’s a mermaid in it. Merman. Haven’t seen it, but this is apparently a one-person animation project by 21 year old Soubi Yamamoto, who cites also-made-by-one-person animation Voices of a Distant Star as an inspiration, which actually doesn’t surprise me.
It’s one in an OVA series by her that’s about dudes falling in love with other dudes who aren’t human, like the self-explanatory “That Guy Can Fight Aliens!”
Soubi Yamamoto’s work is clearly flash-based, super limited in motion, and is heavily stylized. Some parts of the character animation really bug me (YOOOOO THAT’S NOT HOW ARMS BEND, YOOOOO ANATOMY), but I do like how she uses moving textures, and her Kono Danshi series seem to have stronger character animation in them.
Earlier work of hers for NHK TV can be seen here, and a much earlier short film she made while she was in high school, Robotica*Robotics, is here.
Sentai Filmworks has already released “That Guy Can Fight Aliens” (with an English dub, too), so if you’re interested, pick it up.
Thank you guys sooooo much for your patience and understanding!! I know this one took a long time, but I really hope you guys like it!
Special Thanks to: @kukubear – for the suggestion! Sorry for the wait! @fishy-bob – for being my pal and dealing with me every day! QQ And imnotevenapanda – a fellow Game Grumps animator (and animator in general)! Go check his stuff, he’s cool! And especially, the guy on the Adobe forums that single-handedly saved this animation when the file became corrupted upon exporting. The hero this world needs, but doesn’t deserve Q_Q
