Verdict

Tom Fulp

So as I understand it, the girl was afraid of the fireworks so her parents' dropped her off at Grandma's house to watch them quietly on TV. But then it looks like Grandma died and the girl went and saw fireworks for real the following year... And turns out they didn't make a sound. I think the tragic misunderstanding is that she's actually deaf? Regardless it looks and sounds great and I'm fascinated.

Great story and art, just beautiful. I do wish that there was more animation, its leaning a bit towards a visual novel right now.

Mind Chamber

A very sweet story with excellent narration. So did the loss of her grandmother change her perspective on fireworks? still lost on the misunderstanding

Red Minus

The art fits really well with the narrative style, and and I like how the props have an animated element to the linework and coloring. A bit limited as far as the animation itself, which I don't think hurts things necessarily, as the visuals are still realy strong. Compact and concise story that gets the idea across well without being overly blunt.
