Wow! After all the work, all the effort, and all the sleepless nights here it is!

If you enjoy this even a little then the effort will have been worth it.

The is honestly the best thing I have seen on deviant art so far. The time and effort and detail in every shot is so great that it deserves as much praise as it can get. Keep up the good work.

Thanks, there's a Netflix series based on this story called Kulipari that came out not too long ago.

Your mileage may vary with it, but it's out there. :nod:

I love it as much as I am criticizing it. just being honest.
I love how you animate daryl. its amazing.
but the spiders seem....human-y?
also I like the way you made kulipari eyes even more 'zoned' than they try to make them look in the actual cartoon.
I slightly feel like the show came from a book though how about you.

I like this trailer a while ago.
But I only started looking at the series on Netflix like... last week, because I was looking through the options and found it and thought "Oh, let's give this a try' and liked it.

Just found out now, I had already heard of it through here! xD
