The best of the best of the best i ever watched In my entire life.
26 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

although i came across many animations but the moment i watched this animation it somehow felt very real and indeed the truth about life has been revealed in this animation.Man i cant even think of something else but of gun grave.A Real TRAGEDY of life.truly a real one and the worst one i have ever seen in my entire life.i pay gratitude to the director and to all the group who made it.they really are great. i hope they make many other animations in the future which are not so tragic but are about the same caliber.the action and the protagonist should be the same type but the slope of tragedy must less steeper.well the only thing that i want to say to the directors is to do their best in making such animes in the future also.
