"I watch the movie we saw together... on my own. The one I love is far away... So far away I want to cry. When I wake up tomorrow, just look! Hope may be born anew. Good night!"
- Hirano Aya,'Lost My Music', The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (translated by [a.f.k.])
You'll have to excuse the semi-longer wait for this one. I finished my seventh movie last week, but just before I released it, I scrapped it. I screwed it up horribly and sought to remake it. This is the remake, and I must say, my favorite video so far. (so this is really my eighth video, my seventh being unreleased)
Over spring break I watched the absolutely amazing animé series "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" (Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu) (which has now become my all time favorite animé and series), and was struck with the amazing song "God Knows..." played in episode 12. I'm not normally a fan of j-pop, but this song rocks amazingly hard. Right when I watched the sequence where Haruhi plays the song, I knew I had to do a video to it. So when I failed my seventh video, I knew exactly what to do for this one.
The chorus was the thing that really got me:
And so... I'm gonna
follow you through
No matter the pain
Through the darkness of this world if I must
'Cause you'll be there to shine the way
Past the end of the future
Won't let weakness break down my soul
I'll bring it all together now
God bless the two of us.
This change is also, by FAR, by favorite change. It is Elwynn again, only because The Breaking of Spring in Elwynn didn't do the zone justice at all. This is the other side of spring in Elwynn (with Sakura trees! :) ).
Now, unlike my other videos, this one is ALL ABOUT the editing! I hope my skills have advanced so far as to make this one very enjoyable. If you are wondering about the name 'Kirei na Sakura no Mori' it literally means 'Pretty cherry tree forest'.
Enjoy the video, and, if you just even remotely like animé, please watch The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (there are hundreds of fansubs out there), for it is the most amazing animé that I've ever watched! :D.
