    I'm voting for Wolf, since I find his animation to be smoother than Shulk's. I also liked how it was rather straight to the point when it came to doing an outright fight. I understand that both animators have different methods of animating which explains the different styles presented here, and I'll say the menu screen was nice for presentation, but I felt like it didn't add a lot to the overall animation and that it was dragged out. So overall, Wolf has my vote.

    TL:DR: I'm voting for Wolf's MBR for being smooth and straight to the point

    I'm Voting for wolf on this.
    I'll explain why. Animation quality of each animation is very present. As I do not like how Shulkle's animation looks like the frames are dying. Don't get me wrong Shulkle's animation was great. But I felt as if it was drawn out and not to the point as it should have been. But the touch was a nice little starting but I legit was waiting for longer fight from Shulkle.

    -------------------
    Shulkles effects where great but the animation quality of fps just kills me

    ------------------
    Wolfs animation was to the point yes but I think it was alittle to fast paced and needed alittle bit more work put into it.

    -----------------
    But besides that Wolf has my vote

    I'm definitely going with Shulkle on this one.

    --Shulkle--
    Although there were definitely slow parts in your part, there was a clear flow and rhythm to your animation that my eyes could keep up with. Lots of sick combos that I saw which were unique and well put together. The intro, although not necessary, was a cool little segment that I appreciated you put the effort into making. Now for our MBR...

    --Wolferian--
    There were some segments here and there that surprised me, but overall there was so much going on and not enough time for viewer registration. You're the animator so you obviously know what you're trying to portray, just make sure you make it so that the audience will understand what you're trying to go for as well. The camera work was a little static which didn't compliment all the action that was happening in your animation. Also not really sure what happened at the end, I'm just gonna go on a whim and guess you didn't finish or rushed it because you ran out of time.

    Nevertheless, good job to both participants!

    Because the quality of animation looks smoother and better than the shulke. And other point it's how much it is comfortable to see a fight it's see other characters, what gave a good differentiated, see each characters with a unique style of fight and different powers is a little more impressive to watch;
    ----------------------
    I think the capacity of these characters it's equality but, i guess the wolf gonna win if he used more strategy.
    If Shukle use more agility and more distractions in fight with your powers, would have a chance.
    ----------------------
    And that's it! ^^

    I personally love the cinematic in your animation, although two of your execution was done somewhat okay with the whole wrong direction movement and whatnot but that still doesn't take away from the overall impression to the animation. It had a pretty good "show, don't tell" kinda aspect to it. Like, we don't know why Shulkle is fighting those said black characters for any reason but it sets up a good story point for him to engage Wolferain to a battle of MBR in this case. Whereas Wolfereain was more of a cliche type of aspect to it which I personally don't like very much so that's why I'm going with Shulkle's for his exceptional animation skills and cinematic execution as well not being stale.

    Wolferain
    Wow! You've improved rather a lot last time I've seen an animation from you. The way animation starts off with that whole foreign language that doesn't relate to what was said in the textbox threw me off and I'm pretty sure that goes for a lot of people too. The whole how it went down at the start is very typical of MBR animations previously was mostly done, it would be nice to see if you can go another way around the whole "It's time for a rematch!" Perhaps you could try and make a story as to how and why you want your said character(s) to have a rematch with Shulkle. Moving on to the whole fighting aspect to it, this is where your animation skill really improved in with your execution of movements. However, with the whole cliche story behind it is rather making it more silly than it needs to be. There's one thing I didn't get as to why and where those several characters came from and why they're engaging between your character at the start and Shulkle (Yes I know those three or four is your characters.) I honestly don't like how everything just suddenly pops up without any signs of them coming into the animation, especially that bulldozer. Overall animation just feels sloppy and chaotic to what I would like. Good animation, Bad methods of executing said objects and actions along with the story.

    I vote for Shulkle! Happy MBRing!

    Both of them did great animations, with the different animation styles.

    Shulkle animation, was constantly engaging, giving little to no time to think of what's going to happen next. Everything about it just felt exciting.

    Wolferian animation, just can't understand what's going on especially at the end, looking like a finisher but everyone just paused there.
    Since the theme was a 1v1 so going by that, why did it suddenly become a 4v1?

    In short Shulkle had a clearer animation which is easier to watch, while Wolferian animation seemed messy and just felt stale.
    Think having viewer engagement is important to note.

    It's getting late over here so I'll be adding stuff I forgot in tomorrow. That aside, on to the analysis.

    Shulkle.
    Your experience as an animator really shows in how smoothly you transitioned the intro into the animation itself. You really nailed a combat based narrative in your animation and have made a map to help that same narrative. That said, the main fight itself was a bit short when compared to how much happened before it, and it could of had a little more back and forth before it ended.

    Wolferain.
    You've definitely improved, and I'm glad to see you back, but you've still got a ways to go. I can definitely say that your animation has the same major problem that I'm working on fixing in my own stuff and that's pacing. Everything is moving incredibly fast once it starts and nothing is ever really given a chance to be looked at for more then a few seconds. Your text is also a bit small and hard to read, the fight itself is more of a bash then it is a fight, with shulkle only getting a move or two in before the end. And that end isn't even properly conveyed as it's just two sides standing as some wingdings float above, which I'm pretty sure no one's likely able to read or wanting to translate.

    All that said, I'm voting for shulkle because of how his animation has some back and forth in the fight itself.

    holy shit someone actually acknowledged i used wingdings. il say it here all it said was to be continued since I couldn't think of a decent way to end the animation outside of that.
