So far I have to say that this is my favorite defeat animation in game. (however I haven't seen anything in moo shuu yet . . . keep that in mind)
You know these chimney sweeps from Mary Poppins had to have been an inspiration to the developers. Notice in this video how there's a part when the chimney sweeps begin to circle mary poppins and the kids? I'm clearly reminded of that pavilion in Marleybone (is it ironworks?) where the street sweep frogs are slowly pacing in a circle. haha! And they are kind of frog-like in their movements. Maybe?
