Shuriken Goes Live in Europe

‘Shuriken School’ has arrived. It’s one of the newest, and best-looking Flash animated shows on TV. Xilam, a Paris-based animation studio, has partnered with Jetix in Europe and Nicktoons in the US to bring us a show that “follows the extraordinary adventures of 10 year old hero Eizan Kaburagi and his friends during their first year at an under-funded ninja school.”

Below is a video clip from the official show website.

You can also download three SWF videos here – 01 02 03.

Other vector-based SWF files can be found here.

    Stephen – of course it’s all subject to taste, but what I particularly like about Shuriken is that it’s probably not recognizable as a ‘Flash show.’ Sure, we all can tell, but the audience, and executives won’t. That’s a plus for Flash.

    Best looking? Those mouths are annoying manga-crap-style and the animation is sub-par. Looks like flash to me.

  5. Youtube clips run like poo for me.
    When oh when will I bite the bullet and buy a faster pc? :(
