Years and years ago, I was reading the Kingdom Hearts manga and thinking that it would be great if someone made an animation of it. Then I thought that maybe I could have a go myself. So late 2006 I selected the part of the comic that I wanted and started to animate. Four years later, it was complete.

It's hard to say how much time I spent per day because some days I spent hours and some times I wouldn't work on it for days. I'd guess that I averaged slightly less than an hour per day.

I originally had music from the game playing during the animation, but DA doesn't like copyrighted music, so I removed it. if you happen to have the OST, start playing 'Dive into the Heart', and make sure it loops.

And if someone tells you that it's impossible to have ActionScript controlled music playing across several scenes, tell them that it is possible... just really difficult. It took me over a month to figure out.

I must say, the animation in this is absulutely AMAZING.
You truly have some talent when it comes to animation.

My only suggestion is to add a pause button.

Thank you. I only wish that I could claim credit for the original manga as well.

I guess I could add a pause button, I've never thought about it before.

Pensé en tener una selección de idiomas, pero no tengo ningún traducciones extranjeras de este texto, que no ayuda.

Y hurra por los traductores de internet. :)

I thought about having a language selector, but I don't have any foreign translations of this text, which doesn't help.

And hooray for internet translators. :)

Oh wow!! That was amazing, i can't believe that that took you 4 year! Not because it seems so easy, but that you took so much time and effort! I really enjoyed this!!!

Thanks. For the most part, I took a steady approach and worked on it one page at a time. However, when I came up against a problem, I'd throw myself at it until I'd either solve it or realise it's time I got on with real life.

It's not that I don't have my fair share of unfinished projects, this is just something that I wanted to finish.

He he... Wouldn't that be the day. If they don't mind waiting a decade or two, I'm sure that it could be arranged. :)

Thanks.

That's so cool! It's like I'm reading a manga/comic, but the pictures move for you with a different feel than an animated movie!

Thanks. It looks like a manga because it's based on one by Shiro Amano. I just traced, coloured and animated the still images.

I was originally going to have very simple 4-frame movement cycles. But when I came to Kairi's walk cycle early on, I thought I'd try something slightly more complex. The result was much smoother so I set my standards higher and the result was far better.
