About the game: Mystical Ninja/Ganbare Goemon is a popular Japanese cartoon series. This is the first game on SNES, it relates Goemon and Ebisumaru save the princess.
About the run: in the run I used scroll abuse glitch, it much shortened the walkthough in some stages, the biggest time saver. I gave double/triple coin hit on bosses, killed them quicklier. At some places, made a player die to save time. And other minor improvements.
I owe a great thanks to gocha, who has shared many tricks. Also thanks other authors of the game.
Hope you enjoy.

I was never able to make it through the previous movie, because it was a tad bit long, but this one was great! There was a very nice balance of platforming and boss fights, and the stylistic choices were superb. Being able to ride your partners back and crawl around like a snake were really funny, and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole movie. Yes vote from me.

Ummm wow. That was ...awesome. Way to absolutely annihilate the game. You certainly used the death glitch to it's maximal ability. Yeah. Easy Yes vote.

Nice run! you shortened DarkKobold and Yeoj's canceled movie about 5 minutes! It not only contains tricks I've told, but it has things that my run doesn't have. Easy yes vote. // The Legend Continues: Ganbare Goemon 2 ;)

2 player runs tend to be much more entertaining and this is no exception. I really liked your stylistic choices in this run. And of course, it's way faster. Definite yes vote!

It definitely improves the previous movie and has some nice antics when waiting. I'm not sure exactly how that scroll glitch works but I see you used it to skip some screens and sometimes entire stages. Excellent work.

Yes vote for your first non-Castlevania movie! It's entertaining eg. the characters' silly riding on each other.
<klmz> it reminds me of that people used to keep quoting adelikat's IRC statements in the old good days <adelikat> no doubt <adelikat> klmz, they still do

Easy yes vote, entertainment value is so high I would even nominate for potential best SNES TAS of 2008 so far.
