Pretty awesome, liked better than In Terminis as well....felt like it had more of an emotional impact. Great! :up:

Only curious what the relationship between the two characters is? lovers, sisters, best friends? i assume it's intended to be left to the interpretation of the viewer? :ying:

Damn that was very impressive. The first few seconds had me confused for a little ( I didn't read the description, sorry lol)....I caught on. Dynamic vid. Good stuff.

That was nicely done. Crossovers for the win.

Not entirely sure if I got the story right. It was the Toradora chick who had died afterall, no? I liked the twist. It nicely demonstrates the importance of form rather than content. The shift in perspective is purely formal but precisely as such quite powerful. Nonetheless, I had some problems with the story. I just didn't really feel it. Perhaps it felt too simple? The narrative was too easily exhausted. Although I'm sure you spend a lot of thought on those details.

I didn't like the song :uhoh: But I can appreciate it how over-the-top melodramatic the amv is. That is to say, it was shamelessly cheesy. So nice mood build-up there :up:

Very nice crossover!
I loved it and then we also have a nice song :)
Spoiler :
I do not know why, "all" use the same style of umika with crossover :(

Firstly I couldn't stand watching it because of the song. But then I made myself to and I'm gonna tell you it was awesome. That drama near the end was really intense :up: And you've done some excellent job with crossovering. I think some colour effects were a bit overdone though. When I see each screenshot separately, it's pretty but with this whole dynamism it becomes kinda dirty and chaotic.

Here I must disagree, it's totally K&G style. They might be similar but this video is as much their style as possible, at least in my opinion.
Anyway, great job! Surely it's one of the best releases this year :up:

Everybody associates crossovers with Umika so my wild guess is that when there's anything like darkened/blurred clips in a crossover amv people will go "OMG! Umika rip-off!" :P

Crossovers have been going on long before Umika, and Kitty&Galia too. I do not think it is fair to compare the editors especially when it is quite clear their styles of cross-overs are nothing alike and are unique in their own.

I enjoyed this a lot.
I was hoping you girls would have a new AMV for Natsuno or perhaps AKROSS. I liked how you pulled us with thinking we were Taiga in the beginning. Who was able to see a ghost of Menma and not being able to do anything for her. Then it switches to reality were Taiga herself is invisible and cannot communicate with Menma till the end. I really enjoyed the scenes with the anime you selected. I think the character designs of both Toradora worked well with AnoHana.

Thanks for your comments, dear friends! <3

This =)

darkened/blurred clips in a crossover amv

FANTASIA

it's totally K&G style. They might be similar but this video is as much their style as possible, at least in my opinion.

Yes. Because of mystical content of "Saudade" we tried to mix styles of our FANTASIA, Between, in.vain . Nothing more :3

We always try to make each work in individual style, depending on the content and atmosphere. So there is nothing surprising in the fact that the style of "Saudade" is different from drama like Jus Talionis - they have different content and atmosphere, so they have different styles.

Bah ok

EDIT : I'm not accusing G&K of rip, maybe it's because I've been seeing a lot of cross/overs these times and re-watching it more times I made a better idea about it, and I think you're right saying that it has almost nothing in common with Umika's videos
