I really had fun watching this. The dark colours really made this vid look and feel different - and I mean it in a positive way. Big thumbs up :up:
The only thing I didn't like were the attempts at lip sync with scenes from Haruhi at the beginning of the AMV. That was kind of 'meh.
Oh, and the sign at the end should read "Thanks for watching" ^^'

Finally released...
~Opens champagne~
It was 8 months since you first talked to me about this project and boy,I never thought you'd have the patience to complete it.
Watching these 100+ video tracks in Vegas and the 3000 masks was really painful... :? :?
And now you can finally stop talking about what scene to use here and there,what mask to use and what not... :mrgreen:

Anyway,about the video:

The good
+ Very fitting title...truly empty motion from all the girls
+ Amazing job with the colors...the difference between the brightness of each scene was calculated and it was a nice thing watching a dark upbeat video.
+ Kickass editing and a great deal of custom effects.On this note,I can say you're a great thief for stealing scenes from various anime (Code Geass,Shuffle,Clannad,etc.) and use them as backgrounds or effects after altering them a lot.
+ The masking...May I address you now as king of masking,sir? :D
+ my cool stylish name in the credits 8-)

The bad
- a bit too much Haruhi
- the background at the scene of Eiken
- the fact that you almost didn't use Kanon 2006.Thank god I came to your house last week to correct this XD XD

Some general things
You still changed a lot of things since last week.Looks like you couldn't afford to throw away several of the masks you've made all these months and you found a way to toss them somewhere in the video... :mrgreen:

5/5 all the way and opinion coming

ps:Let's focus now on our collab video before I leave for army...

Despite being totally swimming in effects, it's very crisp, clean, and shiny! Random as all hell but it's still overall very well done. It made me lulz 7 or 8 times. I liked it, 4/5. :up:

Man, that was bewitching! How long was it when I last saw something that good? Can't remember. But, with such a good tech comes such a lame mistake: what's wrong with 4:3 footage's aspect ratio? It almost killed my joy at some point. Do a remaster with correct ARs and I'll be your fan forever :mrgreen: Anyway, it's 5/5. Great job, I mean it!

I've often wondered what it would be like if someone spent a couple of amv's worth of effort into just 1 amv.

This must be the result.

5/5 That was pure awesomesauce. Enjoyable from start to end.
"The people cannot be [...] always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to [...] the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to public liberty. What country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned [...] that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."-Thomas Jefferson

Enjoyed this quite a lot.
Besides the screwed up AR at some places, I haven't much to complain.

One of the better vids I've seen this year :up:

x2 :P it was almost interesting that it almost inspired me to quit Mix Martial Arts and put more effort into editing

welly welly well. This video seemed oddly similar to your brainless violence video by ALOT
same style, same clips, same sources, same problems. That's my biggest complaint with this video.
Also...Making 4:3 into 16:9 never turns out well =( plz be concious of what sources you use next time.
speaking of sources....there were 2 sources I didnt enjoy seeing. Lucky Star, and Haruhi
seriously STOP IT, We've all seen the dance movements with those characters FAR too many times.
Its as original as a Naruto and Sasuke amv -_-

On the flip side this is a fantastic improvement on your last video ( with effects )
You seem to be more concentrated with what you were doing and I couldnt find any fuck ups with your masks :up:
Your editing too was more interesting and engaging, and your transitions were smooth as could be.
I plan to re-watch this later tonight under the influence for a nice trip =)

EDIT: rewatching this a couple of times...If you continue to put this much effort into your video's you might be able to be the new Hito
