I have never laughed so fucking hard in my life.
When they started clapping I completely lost it. 10000/10

Story: 2- Such a heartfelt story, my heart really stopped beating. If my English teacher showed this to me in class I honestly wouldn't be so surprised. Seems very poetic.
Art: 1- The Art is immaculate, very unique, never have seen anything quite like it before.
Sound: 6- Yes.
Character: 5- No. Poor Babies, there mama's put them on the freaking ground in order to clap.
Enjoyment: 10- Hell yah
Overall: Mathematically speaking should be 4.8 but it's a 10 now. To fukin bad math.
