    Those words ^ are from Armand, not me.
    I didnt say those are my critics comments. Just putting what I thought after watching. But watching the animations only to see who has better combo, ignore the rest, is wasting effort & creative for Mustika on her cinematic & angle.

    Former Trash-Pivot Animator here, so I somewhat know what I'm talking about. Gives me a basis to critique, though I don't really need one.

    Alright, let's see here. Just before I get in, I want to list some opinions.
    1. I do not give a shoop about combos. I give a shoop about solid combat.
    2. I will not judge intros, cause that doesn't really show how good the animation is. It's an intro.

    Spoiler for Mustika! :D:


    Spoiler for OpieOpie34:


    My vote goes to Mustika. Though Op was much more fluid and the 2d was great, Mustika took a more creative approach, plus the story was better.
    Congrats.

    PS: I have a really really long critique that isn't really organized well. RIP ME

    My vote definitely goes to Mustika. Reasons why I believe Mustika is overall better:

    1.) Dynamic angles that kept me interested
    2.) A better delivery of storytelling and pacing which integrates well into the fight
    3.) Interaction with background objects

    Whilst Op34 was objectively better in connecting hits, that's about it. There was little interaction with objects and the animation suffered from pausing a lot just to deliver their monologue's, which is SO BORING. I believe Mustika's major faults are 2 things:

    (1) Way too much happening in the background and foreground WHILST dialogue is being said and with the color of the texts more or less blending with the background, it was seriously hard to read at first and;
    (2) that midway decision of Op34's RHG just accepting Mustika's request to drop his weapon. Like, seriously? Why would he do that? It looked like a terrible excuse to have a fist fight. If you're going to direct a scene, put meaning into it. Don't just put random scenes just because you felt like it.

    In summary,
    Mustika:
    +Dynamic Angles
    +Kept me interested
    +Better interaction with objects and characters
    +Pacing was great

    - Went with the typical "Drop your weapon because I said so" logic just to have a fist fight
    - A lot of things are happening and/or being shown in scenes where dialogue is heavy


    Op34:

    + Better overall animation (Objectively speaking)
    + Hits and combo's that flowed well
    + Some neat ideas on the choreography

    - Pretty bland once you get to the first minute and you realize it's the same scenes but with just different movements and dialogue
    - Suffers A LOT of pauses just for the characters to say something uninteresting
    - Pacing was okay. Some parts felt like I was slugging through it though.
    - It takes way too long for something to actually happen that has significance of value to the viewers


    tl;dr:
    Mustika did better overall. Op34 had it going for him but it got boring quick. Mustika gets my vote.

    Note:
    We should definitely have an RHG battle after the competition is ove

    1. I'm sure I nailed the personalities very well (since I ask Musti so many times to conform it) but sure I miss the abilities but I did that to make the animation interesting :3
    2. I will agree that my story has a plot hole but lets be clear I really don't need to address it again if you know my character's goal -w-
    3. If I did that I won't be making anything since let's be honest nothing is original anymore -w-, I did apply weaknesses and yes even my form has one if you notice it. it's just I have to make it look overpowered to make it engaging.

    Ey, it's your animation, if your satisfied with it, it's fine.
    Just posted what I thought, it may differ. Cmon man, do you really have to try and explain away everything?
    Like, cmon bruh. It feels like you actually got offended by everything I said. I could technically counter everything you said, but I won't, just cause I don't want a full-fledged argument.
    Especially the spam of these -w-, like CMON BRUH

    Very informative cncing going on here, specially Haru's. Finding things I really need to keep in mind in my own work, some of which I hadn't even thought about before.

    Well looking at the advice given to others can be taken as advice in your own work.
    I enjoyed both of these animations. But I do believe that Mustika overall did a better job. I'd go into detail but I don't want to repeat what's already been said by everyone else, they beat me all to it. Keep it up, both of you.

    So I'm pretty much 24+ hr late since this poll was closed because I wanted to post this particular something pretty much to celebrate how much people actually looked on this battle despite it taking so long to finish. [scroll down for art]

    Regarding to critics I have read on this page, I have no strong reason whatsoever for either the lack of logic on my part, and my animation being too smooth on some parts (mainly the combos I'm aware). Yes, I struggled a lot when wanting to think of a very proper story but due to LOADS of consideration & internal conflicts from Op34's personality/backstory to be used in animation and a fair bit of direction attempt, this was pretty much the result. I was mainly focusing on whether I'd be able to pull out this battle based on my current knowledge of art thanks to lots of guides and tips I had received from some nice folks. Appreciate you guys' time for commenting and voting as well.

    Op34 my dude, great job on the animation, mainly the combos. Cheers for the battle offer once again, I thought you would definitely rekt me since you had so much more experience in animating than I do. Turns out I won with a slight vote differences from you which is unexpected?? Idk XD Also salutation for actually implementing Emerald's backstory bit on the animation, your curiosity was worth it I think ;D Good luck with your real life stuff.

    Zero I'll think about the battle challenge aight. You are way more skilled than I do that's for sure. We'll discuss that in Discord PM or something but just so you know, you have an interesting RHG in terms of current info.

    For now,
