Beautifully made, and the ending presaged with the frog duel before the title screen. (Neither won.) The problem I had was that I was invested in none of the characters. Both duelers were valiant and inventive, the lady showed preference for neither and in fact appeared stupid. So when she was killed off it appeared to be wish fulfilment of the writer. If the writer doesn't care about the characters, why should we?
