Tensions Mount as Danger Threatens
Today, after a long journey, the Ta-Koronan Guard arrived in the icy village of Ko-Koro. The Guard has rarely left Ta-Wahi in past years, but the arrival of the Bohork swarms has changed everything for the inhabitants of Mata-Nui.
"Ta-Koro has always had a courageous defense force," Guard Captain Jala reports, "but not every village is as fortunate. With Ta-Koro secure for the time being, Turaga Vakama has had the foresight to dispatch several able guardsmen to ensure the safety of the less-protected villages."
Upon their arrival in Ko-Koro, the Guard was met with a cold reception. It was only after some discussion that it was decided they would remain. Turaga Nuju remains skeptical towards the situation.
"Nuju respects the noble desires of the Ta-Koronans," explains Nuju's interpreter, Matoro, "but he is simultaneously aware that they have placed themselves in grave danger by remaining here."
The air in the village remains tense with anticipation of the upcoming threat. Is there any danger that Ko-Koro might be invaded by the terrible Bohrok?
"What is this? There was never an animation like this on BIONICLE.com!" you may be saying to yourself. And you are correct, there was not. This is but the beginning of a new series of animations that I have undertaken to create in order to compliment Templar Studios' excellent work from 2002. Templar's work has always been the crowning achievement of BIONICLE to me, and I can only hope that my work is a suitable tribute to their animations. I am eager to hear what you think, and take your feedback into account for the next animation I produce.
Of course, since I am only just beginning, and there are a few things that I hope to implement as improvements next time:
- Center the animation
- Lower the text size
- Improve the consistency of colors
- Ensure that everything that happens in the plot is perfectly clear. As it is, I feel that the ending of this animation may be confusing. If this is so, please do not hesitate to ask.
Beyond that, any and all comments are much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to watch, and I hope the characters and their interactions seem to you to be true to Mata-Nui Online Game!
