Excellent work, seriously.
That's high enough quality that it deserves nothing but complete appreciation.

Awesome job Sherby.

Well now I feel bad... I spent all this time working on this, and now it's going to look like I was stealing someone else's thunder. And to make things worse, I don't even think I'll be able to come close to matching that.

Really like the Kyonko facepalm, Sherby. Then again, I can't think of anything you've done I haven't liked.

-----

Off topic(but kinda what I've been planning for about a week now)... three years ago, I first started coming here(no, seriously, I registered on April 4th, 2008. That's three years ago to the day.), and throughout all this time, the only thing I did I was even remotely serious about has gone unfinished for pretty much the entire time.

But I couldn't just leave things that... Ah, who am I kidding? There's no point in building up what was started mostly as a joke anyway. So here, enjoy a bit of an edit to something I did way back when, plus an actual conclusion to it.

Spoiler for Kyon-chan no Bouken! Episode 01:


... Yeah, that facepalm will probably be seeing use right away.

*e* Episode 02 is found here.
*e2* Episode 03 is found here.
*e3* Episode 04 is found here.

I liked that "episode"--you captured the "Kyon" sarcasm very nicely.

I rather like it that Haruki takes his time before commenting on Kyonko's attire.

Oh yeah, I remember that!
It still looks awesome. But, I kind of wish the animation was smoother.

That'd probably require a professional studio... Or at least people with better equipment.

APNG, needs more of it (for lossless preservation sake).

Oh wow, that's a HUGE difference!

I've tried reducing the file size of it, but when I do, the quality turns into crap.
If there's some other way to reduce the size of it, let me know.

Due to the 256 color palette, the dithered pixels must be recalculated for every frame, and therefore it cannot be fully optimized. Try an APNG version instead. (make sure it's optimized, otherwise they're HUGE)

Also the source doesn't seem very good seeing how there are JPEG ARTIFACTS. >_> This kills the compression for both GIFs AND PNGs.


EDIT: Even with the dithered 256 colors and the JPEG artifacts, just converting the already-made GIF to an animated PNG still gave a smaller filesize. (the GIF is 195KB)

Since this was just a filesize test, I didn't replicate the frame duritation - each frame is set to 100ms

122KB (lossless from GIF)

Now if I use lossy optimizations, then I can get it even smaller. However, 15% tolerance is about as far as you can go before it starts looking noticeably more crappy due to the above-mentioned JPEG artifacts and 256 color dithering.

86KB (lossy from GIF)

Created via APNG Anime Maker, compressed via APNG Optimizer

If the images aren't animating, that's because you're not using Firefox or Opera! (you can also view them with XnView)

Nice job!
I just wish there was a way to keep the timing there without making the file bigger. Ah well.

On another note, with the release of Surprise, Kaisos and I were wondering how we could genderbend the Anti-SOS and Yasumi, including Yasumi's name (Kaisos was thinking about keeping the "Watashi wa Su(zu)miya" concept somehow) and who exactly the shotas would be. (Because shotas are IMPORTANT...apparently)

Your thoughts, everyone?
