Don't get me wrong, There She Is is marvelous from a technical standpoint; the animation is crisp, the art has that subtle blend of cartoon-style and hand-drawn art that provides a right touch of whimsicality to the tale, and the five songs that make up the bulk of the audio are deeply atmospheric. But the story is a bit of a let-down; it seems that with every episode, the story just gets tackier and less interesting. Just watch: 1 - One ordinary cat-guy flees in terror from a love-crazy bunny-girl in a series of disjointed sequences and psychedelic backgrounds. Just like Fantasia. 2 - A chivalrous cat-guy tries to deliver a cake to his oblivious, overly-romantic bunny-girlfriend but the world seems bent on thwarting his efforts. Something like Looney Tunes. 3 - An embarrassed cat-guy takes his enthusiastic bunny-girlfriend on an ordinary date. A typical Slice Of Life cartoon. 4 - The cruel, shallow-minded society destroys the cat-guy's and bunny-girl's romance and makes them both miserable. A Crapsack World multiplied by Diabolus Ex Machina. 5 - The cat-guy forgets about his own problems and rescues his bunny-girlfriend with the power of love and teamwork. Reminded me of Power Rangers. Cerebus Syndrome just swallowed the whole story up, and I'm afraid the heartwarming was warded off by the fact that nothing is new here. The story is practically the bread and butter of every furry webcomic in existence. Just be friends with benefits! Move to Norway! Deny outright romance while still maintaining the masquerade! There's nothing new here. But... as I said, it's very well done for a Flash cartoon series, and that's the reason you should watch it. If you tear up as a result, then good for you. There are a lot more poorly-done works of art that could illicit the same reaction, and if you're going to desensitized to The Power Of Love, you may as well do it here.
