I enjoyed it quite a bit, especially the unique look you gave to the entire video.
Gonna try to give this video another shot at AX2013?

Now there's the understatement of the year!! How many times did you redo the effects in this AMV? Three? Four? Including that time when the video was the victim of massive HD failure? Thank you for persisting with this and continually giving it your best, it shows a huge amount of dedication to do an effect like this, nevermind 3/4 times over, and the results were absolutely worth it.
What I most love about this effect is that it's not really a gimmick, I think it actually adds a lot to the story you're telling and it really emphasizes your care with editing and the wonderful, expressive animation in Utena. This is a romance without facial expressions, there are no doe-eyed looks are supporting this story, it's all about body language and your choice of scenes. Even with the non-English lyrics on top of that, everything is still absolutely crystal clear. Not everyone can pull that off, so congrats!!
As promised, onto my favorites list it goes!! 5/5

It's not my type of the vid when it comes to dynamics and stuff but you've done some magnificent job with the visuals. Now it all fits together- music, visuals, story. Can't really say much more, just WHOAAA

Emong wrote:I remember this from AWA Pro. Very cool stuff you've got here. Shows some tremendous effort. Like DriftRoot said, it's impressive how one can convey such narration and dramatic content without facial expressions.
Pwolf wrote:Great job on the visuals and the story telling... like Emong and Drifroot before me, you did a great job of showing emotion and narration without a lot of detail in the frame. That said, the video lacks rhythm. It's more or less just a story being told with seemingly random cuts. Which is perfectly fine if that's all you wanted but I think I would've liked a bit more editing, some more cuts to a rhythm of some kind. Good job none-the-less
