    As of March 26th, 2016, the animation software behind Studio Ghibli films (since Princess Mononoke), Futurama, Balto, and a whole bunch of other notable shows and films is now free and open source on Github under the New BSD license. They're already plenty of tutorials out there to get started with on YouTube since it's released. I'm gonna fiddling with this a lot.

    P.S.
    As of the initial 1.0 release, they're some reports that it's a little crashy on Windows, and a tad rough around the edges. 1.0.1 should fix the issues.

    That first animation is Afr0 quality. I'll probably give this a shot myself some time.

    To be fair, I'm still learning the software. I had to redo the interface to my ideal specs in order to get this simple animation done. This is by no means Adobe Flash Pro/Animate which is far simpler by comparison.

    When you consider his abuse of locks and horrid network library, yes.

    And I was, like, 18. I'll admit the ending is a little cheesy.
