TTA 2nd Year Anniversary by Kirbopher15 TTA 2nd Year Anniversary by Kirbopher15
August 25th, 2004, at 3:21 in the afternoon. Two years ago I started this crazy little flash movie series about a buncha' kids who just wanted to have fun, but then ended up being thrown into things bigger than them all. As I've often said before, there are times where I'm not always proud of WHAT I've done with the series. In retrospect, it's a bunch of sprite flash movies, text only, with barely any actual voice acting except on a few exceptions, annoying buttons, and a plot that when you think about it is really just a different telling of .hack// and the Megaman.EXE series with some Dragonball thrown in...made by a guy who represents himself as a white kirby with a link hat. Because of that, I as the creator have had mixed feelings on these movies I've been doing for the past couple of years. But there've always been some things I HAVE been proud of. One, any sort of originality that I'm able to put it that makes it not just a complete ripoff of pre-existing material. Two, I've had many people that I'm good storyteller. Among the many attributes of the series, the story and storytelling style is something that I truly DO feel proud of among all else... Three, lastly and most importantly, I can't take all of the credit for how far I've gotten at this point, because I'm thankful to have so many people helping me. All of my voice actors, all of my sprite artists, the music contributors, anyone who's given me feedback on whatever site or in whatever form you can, and even the people who've sparked such little ideas that ended up being big deals in the series at this point in time.

So this picture is dedicated to all of you guys, with the characters that I've all gotten attached to in some way or another. Whether they be based on my first or latest internet friends, people who I considered 'enemies' at any point, or even those made out of thin air...

Alpha: Ultimate Creature II, Kirbopher, Flamegirl, Gamecrazed, Gamecrasher, Nailock, Zetto, Ruri, Giga, Rob*, Saturndiva, White Queen, Sniperwave, Tamerlisa, Foreva, Hamstar, Ericho, Thunder256, Shogun, Tsuzuku, T-Bones, Grounder, Raccoon, Sojojo, Blingbling, Ravenfreak, Splat, Demon King, Neomutant, Simdragon, Tormentros, Torben, Sk8rboi, Dustbunny, Anidoug, PaperAceChase, Darkblazer, Kinetix, Dikayes, MysteryX, Orbit, AKAKK, Webmaster, Kindarspirit, Blitz128, Rubyrulz, EXE, Phaxal, Phetus. Counted 49 characters? There's a 50th one in there, but you can't see them. It'll make sense in the future, trust me.

...and so, I can only hope that I can finish the entire series for all of you guys to see, because I DO have an conclusion for the story. We're still far away from it, so I want to continue as much as I can, as long as you guys will stay here with me. So that's what I ask. To anyone who's reading this anywhere, just tell me, even if you weren't here from the very beginning, what do you really think of the series and where it's gotten at this point?

I just found out this exists, and don't know what to make of it. I remember so many of these people from looking at the Pokemon (I think) forum at the old TvTome when I was a little kid. That murder mystery thread... All of that drama too. Wow.

I love your series. I actually watched your Power Rangers parody and saw this TTA series you'd been making. After the first 20 episodes, I was hooked. Believe me when I say, that I love every minute of this series.

I think one of the best things about this series is simply...it's pacing. Plots and characters aren't all thrown in together. There's a nice ebb and flow to the story. That's why I like it so much...and any series that can throw me for a loop and actually have my jaw drop DEFINATELY deserves a place in my favorites.

(Like the last few episodes of Season 2, where they finally met Voltarus (?) I was like "NO...F***ING WAY!!!" I seriously watched it that episode 3 times because I was so totally shocked.)

Finally, it's your character's themselves. Because they are based on real people, there is a level of sincerity and genuine charm that shines right through. Even with your villians.

I hope you can continue this series for a while and I'll be very sad when you finally conclude. So that's about the jist of it. Keep up the great work! (Not good work, GREAT work because it is great.)


PS: The outtakes at the end of Season 2 are hilarious! I hope I can see more of them at the end of Season 3. I can't wait for episode 73 to finally arrive!

This series is awesome. I got hooked around when episode 69 was made, and couldn't stop myself watching it. Best of all, not a moment was spoiled by other people that might've seen it; no one I knew had ever heard of it, so I got to feel all the suprises first-hand.

Anyway, just a guess, could this mysterious 50th character possibly be in the background? Because I'm guessing at Motherboard.

Your drawings are really good Kirb. Why didn't you make TTA as an animation like this? Or even make it as an actual comic.

I think the whole series is awesome, I've been aware of it for a while but since well.. I happen to not like newgrounds I kinda didn't watch it, yesterday I decided to just watch it anyway and it was so good I watched all 2.5seasons you released thus far in 2 days. I have to say although coming from a guy who prefers FF1 to an XBox, this was one of the best series' I have seen and wow hope it continues and finishes good.

Huzzah for the insanely late comment cuz dA's system was fried the day this was posted and i completely forgot to come back here to finish my post... all right, enough chatter.

Very nicely done, especially with the semi-chibifying of some of the characters.

So THAT'S our name of our Meta-Paint-Kirby character.... i saw the name in the credits but didn't know who it applied to. I also see you changed Blitz's color scheme to that of a 1-UP mushroom... i wonder if he'll make that point known in Motherboard404. :XD:

oh, and about the series itself... i first watched an episode during the infiltration arc after you accompanied CZ in one of his rants, in which he mentioned TTA. Of course, at that point in the series, i had no idea what was going on, plus the fact i hadn't known that the old episodes were on newgrounds so that i could see it from the beginning. Several months later i actually took the time to watch the whole thing, and by that time, season 2 was done, and needless to say, i became a regular watcher since. And once again, everyone else has said everything i wanted to say in this matter, so i direct you to their posts to find what praise i give for you and the series.

I love the series. And I'll admit that I did get sick of it for a while. But that wasn't because of the story line or anything...it was because it takes so freaking long to load one episode....Stupid Dial-up -_-U
Congrats on 2 years of awsomness, and I'm glad I could be a part of it. Even though I'm not all that much help >.> :XD: ^^;

GREAT pic, Kirbopher! I'm actually kind of a new fan of the TTA Series, but I'm really impressed. You've probably heard this a million times, but...you're an awesome storyteller! Especially in the suspense category. I really do wish you luck in the last leg of the series (however long it may be). I've actually started encouraging my friends to watch it, and, although many of them make fun of me for my endless praise of it, they enjoy it too. I speak for them when I say it's a great series.

As for the pic, it is faved forever! XD Excellent job!

Sorry about you having to endure another fan comment ^^; You know the drill.

"what do you really think of the series and where it's gotten at this point?"

Well, Kirb, I have seen a bit of your work on Newgrounds in the past, but I never really dove into watching your series until a few months before you moved to FB20XL. That was when I was scrounging through The OMA's links page and saw TTA listed there. As you said, the story was mostly a mix of .hack// and Megaman.EXE. Even so, in my opinion, you have turned the story into something very original, even if it didn't start off that way. The series is very easy to get hooked on after watching just a few episodes. After you get the first season episodes reworked, you should have little to no fear of anyone booing you off the stage (or whatever metaphor you want to use).

Be proud. You have undoubtedly spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours creating everything you have up to this point. I'm sure that it will all live on inside many people for even years after completion.

In any case, my good sir. You are definately my favorite sprite animators of all time. Your show, TTA keeps me in constant "WOAH!!!" mode and my eyes always bulge out as I read and watch the storyline and action.

Here's to two awesome years and a great new future on the horizon!

Lesse... Um... I wasn't really here from the very beginning. One of my 'net friends showed it to me a while back, and I really really liked it. I'm a bigtime RPer, and the story reminded me a bit of an RP. I really got to liking the characters (Torben and GameCrasher specifically) and was always excited to see the next ep of the story. :3 It's gotten very interesting now (albeit a bit confusing at times, but I'm a person that gets confused VERY easily...) and I'm still excited to see the next ep. :3

...and I have no idea if that helped you at all. Ehehe. ^^;
