Song, but no anime...

Postby chaos450 » Sun Aug 18, 2002 4:34 am

I'm listening to "To Kill A Stranger" by the metal band Fozzy, and I think an AMV could be made with this song. Unfortunately, my knowledge of anime is very limiting :shock: , so would anyone suggest any anime that could go with this song (No DBZ; it's too obvious, and there's already too many DBZ AMVs out there)?

Here is the song's lyrics:

I’m drowning in the shadows
That creep in my mind
And it’s hard to escape,
When there’s no place left for
Me to hide

And I keep on running
From the blood on my hands
The battle is won but
Will it ever end

Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we’ve been through
Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we’ve been through

Darkness has engulfed
All the light in my life
And my thirst to kill
Has grown stronger
Over time

And I keep on running
From the blood on my hands
The battle is won but
Will it ever end

Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we’ve been through
Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we’ve been through
Who am I to kill a stranger
The truth you always knew
Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we’ve been through

It’s the fever that yearns
For the thrill of the kill
And I keep on running
From the blood on my hands
The battle is won but
Will it ever end

Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we’ve been through
Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we’ve been through
Who am I to kill a stranger
The truth you always knew
Who am I? A little stranger...
And now I’m killing YOU!

My suggestions: Trigun, Bebop, and though I hate the series it might fit, Noir.

My Suggestion: Eva (Neon Genesis and EoE)

With me, music does far much more in establishing feel/appropriateness than lyrics do (tonal qualities suggesting a certain color palette and certain kinds of shots; see http://www.animemusicvideos.org/legacy/ ... hp?v=10286 ), but from what I know about Fozzy and what I can see happening in the lyrics, I'd suggest Perfect Blue. It's got a lot of the same psychological 'issues' as Eva has, and it also benefits from not being done to absolute death (sorry, Firestorm, but there are already 847 videos out there using Eva/EoE to some degree).

I like kthulu's Noir idea as well, but it looks to be tough to do this song without using a lot from the end of the series. When it comes down to it, though, it's your vid; watch some anime or AMVs (shorter and free) and set up the source that you think works best.

No offense taken, I knew when posted that how overdone Eva is. It's just the series that struck me off the top of my head. Haven't seen Perfect Blue yet...

Hmmm...I'll probably do a Trigun AMV with the song; I have a neighbor with the entire collection of Trigun DVDs. :) And i already found ErMaC's guide, so I'm not gonna ask how to rip. :P

I finally got the last DVD of SoulTaker and when I first heard the Fozzy song I went back to my room and put in SoulTaker and thought that it would work. Also now that I think about it, if you made it an action AMV with more than one anime SoulTaker, Trigun, Perfect Blue, Spriggan, Hellsing I would think work.
