Children Who Chase Lost Voices falls under that category. If anything I think this movie is a big throwback to his old formula of slightly hokey straight people romance.
As for the AMV itself: Not bad, although I would imagine I'm only watching it because there hasn't been a deluge of fantastic Garden of Words AMVs yet, considering your song choice. On a technical note, I saw some strange frame blending (couldn't tell if it was just slow-downs gone awry or a more serious framerate problem; MediaInfo flags the video as 24fps which is almost
correct) and surprisingly poor compression artifacts, which was a little disappointing considering the astounding RAW quality available to us.
Still, despite the flaws, it's very clear to me that you made this video in earnest and put a lot of thought behind it.
