Super Mario Bros. Z

7 posts in this topic

I feel like Super Mario Bros. Z has left a big enough impact on the animation world, and has a rich enough history to warrent its own thread. And with the remake of episode 1 just releasing today I don't think there's a better time to start talking about this old, yet amazing series.

 

Episode 1:

I'm excited to see how the creator handles Fire Flower Sonic this time around, now that his limits in animation have been broken.

I remember seeing the original series get a bunch of awards and stuff in the old Newgrounds days, but I never actually sat down and watched it throughout.

 

Would you recommend watching it now the remake has started? 30 minutes seems too long for something like this for me. :-P

inb4 Scaler only made this thread because Rawk Hawk makes an appearance.

I remember watching the originals, shame he stopped working on them, but I'm very glad now that he's remaking the episodes the way he envisioned them. I especially like what he did with the text boxes. I used to dislike how the text boxes looked a lot, but the way they are now, I feel like it gives it a much more appealing look.

 

Also act 2 of that Bowser fight scene was lookin' like the Senator Armstrong fight.

The 30 minutes absolutely fly by. This isn't just an average joes flash animation. Super Mario Bros. Z is pretty much THE fighting animation. Honestly any fight animation that came after SMBZ took insperation from SMBZ. It's one of those flashes that will forever remain in flash history for how much it effected everything.

My mini history lesson aside its absolutely top quality and I suggest watching it. The episodes are that long because of how much content Alvin puts into his work. It honestly feels like a Dragon Ball Z episode sometimes.

Fairly certain episode 7 or 6 (one of the two) was over an hour long lol. A lot of the episodes have interesting concepts and are filled with a lot of action, kinda explains why most episodes are half an hour to an hour each or somewhere between.

I personally think it would be more appropriate to post the Newgrounds link on here instead of the YouTube link.
