Not sure if this warrants expressions of sympathy or congratulations, so I guess I'll do both -
WOO HOO! *I'm sorry to hear that, man*

Seriously, though, I am glad to see that you've worked your way out of that rut you were in. The sprite animation scene just isn't what it used to be. As the undisputed champion of the "Sonic/Mario" sub-genre, you just might be able to deliver the shot in the arm it needs.
...and now I guess we're racing to see who finishes coming back from purgatory first.
"Princess Peach has always been a dumbass in distress and that's how she's gonna stay."
YES! Yes, yes, yes, all of my yes! I was just showing a friend of mine the first few episodes of SMBZ and decided to take a peek and see if there were any updates.
I thought it was too good to be true, but then I looked at the post date (yesterday) and I nearly cried!
Welcome back, Alvin, you have been missed. =)
Literally revived this Newgrounds account just to watch your videos. I'm surprised how much this site has changed, and I'm sure that you have as well. Not in a bad way but in... and improving way.
well this is looking good hopefully this series would go down to history and become the best mario-sonic flash anime ever
we gonna be seeing a lot of epic stuff in the upcoming years people
Peach has always been a dumbass in distress? What about Super Princess Peach?
Also, will the Axem Rangers X return and be completely massacred by Metallix? When I saw Mecha Sonic do that, I was like "...Damn..."
Looking forward top this.
Has it really been 10 years already? Time flies.
Hey man you are great, your return put really a smile on my face you are the best :)
YAY! one of my all time favorite mario flash animation series lives again. :) even if the reboot won't be the same as the original, i'm sure it'll still be great to see after all this time.
It's awesome to see you taking an interest in doing the series again! Since you stopped, I always checked back to see if there was any movement on the project even after you dropped it, and to my surprise I saw your post when I checked a few days ago. Welcome back man, everyone is thrilled to see you interested in the project again.
Terik summed it up pretty well: "I thought it was too good to be true, but then I looked at the post date (yesterday) and I nearly cried!
Welcome back, Alvin, you have been missed. =)"
At Long Last!!! The god of the SMBZ series mash-up returns to grace us with his glorious work!
I am eager to see what you can come up with for EP 9 and so on!
If you decide to reboot, or push forward with the same genre and style...PLEASE keep in mind that your work is flawless as it is!
Don't fret too much about the new aged trash that's being thrown out there as those of us from the 8x and 9x generation appreciate the old style 8/16/32 bit sprites and THAT says plenty!
A warm welcome to you again Alvin!
i hope you are not planning to get swivel 3d ?
You're getting confused between Swivel and Swift 3d.
Sprite animations have always been one of my favorite things on NG, so I'm delighted to see someone well-known for sprite animations is returning again.
I had a feeling that you'd return one day to try your hand at sprite animation again. Looking forward to the revamped series, Alvin.
Anyways, good luck with the Patreon campaign and on developing the series as well!
Its been a long time, Alvin. "Kept us waiting,
Alvin-Earthworm is back!
There is a god!
Just found out that you're returning with some more SMBZ goodness. While I am sorry to hear you don't have a job (and hope that changes in the future so you can find a good career), I am happy that you're gonna continue this series. As a similar aged individual who remembers the first one when it hit Newgrounds all the way back in 2006 (gah, we are getting OLD my good sir!) this is definitely hitting all my fond nostalgia moments.
The god is back! *bows*
Sorry to hear about losing your job. Even tho it sucked, everyone needs cash. You should start a Patreon account tho. I'd fund you & I'm sure hundreds of others would too.
Hearing this news (yeahhhh i'm a little late) really makes me shed tears of joy! I quit my job last year to try and get into college and into a career that I enjoy, I've been trying my best to improve myself in life to the point of putting myself down all the time to push myself into doing better. Hearing how you no longer have a job but not letting it get you down while improving your already phenomenal series gives me hope for my own self improvement! I look forward to seeing your new masterpiece as the months go by.
