This is an updated version, I had to resubmit it because otherwise I couldnt replace the inital link with the original flash file. For all of those who faved my earlier piece, I am sorry, I hope you dont mind.

The music is gone in the deviantart version due to rules, but I still have a link in the flash file to the original animation. Since the animation is timed on music, I highly recommend everyone to watch the version with music.

finally, FINALLY I managed to finish this. 1700 frames... This took quite a lot out of me... This time around I even managed to remember the time I approximately put in it (about 100 hours or even more). And I must admit, I am quite proud of the result, especially since this is only the second animation I made in Flash, and the first handdrawn one. Owyeah, apart from the music everything is created by me, without reference.

A husband and wife seperated by war, only to die in solitude. Died with regrets, they couldnt leave this planet and thus they were given a second chance. They became spirits and were given the role of The Echo. This animation is the story about how they found each other again in this spirit world.

It has been a while since I last submitted a spirit series. Anyways; this is The Echo, a spirit couple (and also the only spirit to consist out of two people), and they govern sound and everything conveyed by it.

And as a last note, in case you dont see the text in the beginning of the animation; the music is from Crono Cross - Time's Scar by Yasunori Mitsuda.

I watched the version with sound ~~ very nice movie!

Were you going to use that Japanese translation I did for a flash movie like this as well?

Yeah, and since I have vacation, I hope to finish the thing finally... It has been delayed for like forever, so I really should get busy on it (while the translation was actually meant for my penpall, as her English proficiency is rather bad, so there would be no way that she would understand the poem fully. That is why I needed a translation). That animation is coming along nicely, but I am still only at the half of it, since I am having trouble with syncing the whole movie and still getting my message across.

I saw the sound version on Newgrounds, and can I just say... wow. This gives me shivers everytime I see it, and in a good way. Fantastic work, sir.

Still great.

But... What's updated about it?
Crimson-diabloS Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2007
the fact that now you are actually able to watch the movie on devart, instead of being linked to newgrounds. I was contacted by an admin earlier that I had to update the file with an actual flash movie, instead of only a link, since otherwise it could not remain in the flash-movies section. Since I was not able to update the original file, I needed to resubmit the whole thing.

Oh, right, I thought you meant the short itself was updated.
