Do let's. ^^
Here is my rationale. Art is a form of communication, which is audience-oriented by definition. If it doesn't somehow speak to those who see it, it fails in its primary objective.
Since you brought it up, and I feel like talking...
This is slightly referenced in my comments; when I started planning this, I divided my audience into three--people who know nothing about Casshern Sins, people who know its basic premise, and hardcore fanatics who know it inside out. The idea was for me to make the video in such a way that it would have three different layers of meaning, one for each audience. (And if I'm the only one in the last category, that's fine... T_T)
I hope people who never watch the series will be entertained to their satisfaction. And perhaps, if anyone really is moved to check out CS because of this vid, the additional layers will be unlocked for them. ^^

The final turned out fantastic.
I'm not normally a big fan of semi-transparent overlays, but the way you used them in this video really helped set and keep the mood, and it fit perfectly with the rising and falling in the tone of the music.
I liked this video, and I think anyone looking for a well put together dramatic piece will also enjoy this.
Thank you. ^^
(And thanks Ileia, Otohiko & Kazemon15 for beta-testing as well. I admit I largely ignored everyone's sound advice, but the moral support was indispensable.)
Gotta check out this anime sometime, definitely looks interesting.
Every time someone says this my heart goes pit-a-pat.

Oh, you watched that thing?
You may find this interesting: I still have that roughly 2-minute beta, and it is virtually identical to the final. The major change that took place between then and now is I remastered the footage from watermark-ridden raws to blu-ray rips.
Seeing the ending helped, ne? Well, I'm glad you changed your mind.
Awesome work here
Although I haven't yet fully digested the majority of the story (I haven't seen the source, but I'll have to after watching this video), this has to be some of the best editing I've seen in an AMV. Everything, from the overlays to the beat synch and colors, flowed amazingly well. I've watched this over and over again and I only enjoy it more every time.
Wow, what a compliment. Thank you.

=/ -Cross- doesn't hold the copyright on that effect. Blame! does. Woops, I completely forgot to put Blame! on the additional anime list.
~Edit~ << I forgot Cossette and Advent Children too. Double fix'd!

I'm so pleased to see that you picked up on that. ^^
Too long is just another way of saying 'not entertaining in its entirety,' which is a valid complaint....Someone go tell *inverse* someone made another Darren Hayes vid.
