Hey It’s Lollie! — “Groovy!” Credits Sequence

Uncovered this cute little anime from the early 90's! Anyone recognize it? 🦊

Everyone envisions their ideal anime opening, but never an anime ending! This started off with the run cycle, working on top of a sprite animation as a test, and then scope-creep steadily built up from there.

At the time, I had just finished watching the original run of Cardcaptor Sakura, and Kohmi Hirose's "Groovy" stuck with me as my favorite ending sequence. Every part of this video is a homage to it.

This was also technically my first time doing hand-drawn animation. I guess sprite and 3D animation count as transferable skills, who knew!
