The only thing more fun than watching this video...is watching it in double-speed!

I just did so...and my brains exploded. I had to wipe them off the floor and duct-tape my head to prevent further leakage...

Seriously though, awesome job! It's just like skittles except the music doesn't annoy me as much (I hate rap).

I'm going to watch it at 3x speed and see if I desintegrate.

I actually played Skittles after watching this on loop for like an hour.

It made Skittles look unbelievably slow paced :|

"Otaku used Solarbeam"
"It's super effective!"

This video hurt, how awesome it may or may not be, I cannot judge.

I'll wait a while, recover from the sensory overload, and ask someone with a higher tolerance to bright colors (and words being flashed waaay too fast) what they thought of it. Then I'll flip a coin as to determine whether or not I'll just assume their opinion to be my own.


...as far as the person who commented on watching it double speed? Maybe next time I watch this I'll figure out how to play it at half speed, which is really much more reasonable.

weee thanks for the comment! High spaced hyper videos ftw ;O





id like to respond to a majority of the QCs ive been getting.

Ive been getting a lot of "this is a blatant rip-off of skittles" kind of comments. Id just like to point out that when i started this video project, i had absolutely no intention of "copying" skittles. I had this concept in mind quite some time before skittles was released and i intended on incorporating BRIGHT SHINY COLOURZ in one way or another, and the only similarities i can find between the two are the fact its Haruhi + BRIGHT SHINY COLOURZ! The concepts are quite different as well. Skittles is a parody of a real life music video, and Otaku is a crazy fast paced happy hardcore seizure inducing romance-esque video. The sweet and sour skittles was NOT a reference to Koop's vid, it was simply to sync up to the "so sweet and sour" lyric. Im quite sure had the video've not had any color effects whatsoever, people wouldnt be comparing the two, but the song really, really called for it.

Sorry, just wanted to say that. Oh and to those who've been leaving me those "I CoUlDnT sEe ThE VAHDEEO jus teh AUDIO!!!!1111", please get the xvid and please dont try to "teach me" how to "encode properly" through a QC.

Anyways thank you all for the comments, regardless of whether you liked the video or not x3

Jesus Christ :shock:

5/5 on the editing.

I don't like the music nor all the colors EVERYWHERE though (I guess that's a matter of taste), but the video is definitely smooth.

Multiple seizures and bleedings... :D :D :D
Anyway,editing-wise it's 10/5.Music-wise,sorry but this type of music isn't my style at all.Add to this that I don't like either of the 3 anime sources so this vid isn't my cup of tea.
However,it's still magnificent and a keeper of course.5/5 all the way.

And on another note,you have improved so much after your first Vegas vid.All I can say,I'm impressed.Now go work on your Fuko vid!!! 8-) 8-)

This was deffinately massive win. Quality and editing were near perfect. The effects were nicely done and synched with the song, but I really liked sugardansen more. :P

4.5/5
