Great story and great music. At times I felt like things were lingering a little too long on random activities, and I couldn't wait to see what "age" was going to be next so I sort of zoned out until that occurred, but this was a wonderful idea overall. A nice touch would have been making sure her hair color remained more consistent throughout. I'm now somewhat inspired to make a parody of this AMV... :| take that as a very high compliment, if you want. LOL

4/5

Really great stuff all around, and well deserved wins for A Life Well Lived.

@Life Well Lived: I really loved the concept and the music but I think it was a little slow in the beginning, while jumping through the heroine's later adult life too fast. Also applying some selective color correction to the hair would do miracles. I already had to try a lot to ignore the art style changes between Ghibli, Kon and Hosoda parts.

That said, great concept and fitting music somehow hold the video together :wink: .
