...it was exactly one year ago on this day, that I began the story of the virtual world, those played it, those who defiled it, those who protected it, and those who died by it. First it was Newgrounds, then Deviantart, then Onoze, Readyfyght and ultimately, Fireball20xl. Tvtome Adventures, the story based on a crazy little RP back on the first forum Alpha and I had ever been to, has been out and around to many places, and you've seen over 50 episodes with one Feature Movie. I've spent hours late into the night test a movie over and over trying to get each episode as best as it can be, improving myself QUITE a bit since Episode 1, making 3 to 4 episodes each month or so, meeting many new people who've contributed so much to this series...and never once, did I feel like it was too much, or too big of an unecassary job for me. Once I started it, I just felt like it was something I was supposed to do. For this picture, I know it's not pretty, and there's no shading, and lots of errors, but I worked on it NON-STOP from 10:30 in the morning to now
When UC finished his, it'l be a LOT better, but I went for the quantity over quality approach in this case. No D-buggers, sorry. They suck. And now, I need to thank some people.
-Chris: CZ-Backlash. For being a fantastic and dedicated voice actor, and even moreso (Count Morzero
) as an audio manager. You were there to watch the first episode and since then have become a really good friend of mine.
-Greg: the Wise Mankey. For not only being the perfect voice of one of the main characters, but also taking such a HUGE interest into the series. In fact, probably more than anyone else I'VE seen, maybe even me XP I hope you don't mind that I kind of think of you as the ultimate TTA fanboy, but that interest you've had really means a lot, and I'm proud that you consider me your friend as well.
-Jake: Niro Rose. I was really glad to talk to you again after so much. You're one of my best voice actors, and I wish you lots of luck as your persue a professional career as one when you move :3
-Rylune and Coraxus, thanks for all of the help in my blasted flash problems. I haven't been able to solve them just yet, but it's thanks to you guys that I've managed to dodge some of them, so without you guys many episodes wouldn't be working right now.
-Betatronic. For designing that kick ass logo for the new season, helping me through tough times when I needed to put up the TTA Movie, making all of that fanart, and or having such an awesome character made from scratch to be in the movie as well!
-Marty. For the audio, flash, and voice acting help. Seriously, I can NOT believe you're that young and that intelligent XD I hope you accomplish your mission to be a Game Develouper.
-Cheryl, Colin, Glide, Yamatoman, Megzheartcho, Eshbaal, Samantha, JV, Lexum, John, Psyonara, Dad, Blazeman, Urutapu, Itachi, Flarechiisu, Cailen, Mewchu. All of my voice actors, TTA really couldn't have gotten as popular as it is now with all of your grunts, groans, battle cries and death screams to come out of those pixelated warriors' mouths. It's been fun talking to and getting to know several of you more and more through AIM, and thanks for such a great performance thus far.
-Alan, the O.M.A. Despite being a little late to jump on the bandwagon, you've done a whole lot for me, simply because you felt like you needed to contribute to such a huge project like this. Those huge-ass loads of music have been great, and if it wasn't for your comic, I probably wouldn't have made it to TFS, and I probably wouldn't have bothered to make TTA into a flash movie series at all!
-Christi, Prismaya. I was totally surprised to find out that you were a fan of the series WAY back during the old episodes, and that fanart piece really showed it. It DOES mean a a lot to me that you, and the other Fireballers that watch, take time out of your days (which tend to be filled heavier than mine) to watch my movies. Hope you had a happy birthday!
-Bryon, Psyguy. For taking me into Fireball20xl, teaching me a lot of stuff, letting me use your original music, and much more. I really didn't think TTA would end up being on your site, but it's a real honor, and I hope I stay there til the series' end.
-Baldur, the elenia elf. For the inspiration of the Kagetou two-parter, that really was awesome. I gotta give credit where credit is due.
-Rapmaster Flux. For being such a great villain for the TTA Movie, and calling me an inspiration for continuing on your own flash movies! Hope to see the final episode of the Gamin' Friends someday!
-All of the Sprite Artists from TFS: AkumaTH, Abyss, Megzheartcho, Betatronic, Semijuggalo, Mausy, Creepy, Ninja Brad, Edgehog, Commando Joe (I know I'm missing many others...). Thank you for doing a wonderful job on the sprites of the TTA characters.
-Everyone who's made any sort of fanfiction or fanart...that isn't a badly drawn MS Paint Kirbopher that was made in three seconds...I love all of them. Especially the many entrants from the Season 1 & 2 Art Contests, and Spring the Rabbit's fanfic that I really hope will continue someday!
-All fans that are patient for new episodes, that don't continually pester me on AIM, that don't try to rip me off, that don't try to whore their way into the series when I have no idea who they are, that type like sensible human beings, that REALLY get deep into the story and really cherish what I've made. Thank you all for watching the previous 50 episodes, and stay tuned for more! ^_^
-Santy, Ruri-chan. Sorry I've been making you wait so long for Season 3, but thank you for keeping me at it all the time, being there for when I feel like crap, making lots of fanart, and so much more. Love ya ;3
-Last but not least...Alpha. The music, the sprites, the voice acting, the ART, being the best friend a kirby could have. Just about everything from 5th Grade and up XP And of course, taking such a huge attachment to the character Alpha, made almost two full years ago. The fact that you like him so much and have made all of these kick-ass pieces of art really makes me happy X3
I know there are probably more people for me to be thanking, and to those I missed, I apologize. I've been doing this for a whole year, and I'm only a little over halfway done. I got about another 49 episodes in me, and I hope that all of you will enjoy them. Also, I'm not perfect, I'm really just as dumb as any other n00b you'll find on TFS or the entire net for that matter, but I do know one thing. TTA isn't the proudest work I've ever made, but it's opened up so many new doors in my life. It's not through it's popularity that I've made new friends and met so many great people, it's because of their involvement with it, and their involvement with me. And I'm even prouder to call many of those people my friends. Season 2 is nearly complete, and I think you'll all be very impressed.
