  • Comments: Okay, first the technical details:

    This video was created using FlaskMPEG for DVD ripping and Adobe Premiere for actual video editing. It is compressed with the /DivX 5.02 Pro/ video codec so make sure you have that before trying to play this. (The Gain adware version is still technically free, just has the occasional annoying pop-up ads :/ ) Optimum playing size is 320 X 240, can be full-screened but since this is about 50-60% of the original quality due to compressions and because the bitmaps used for the text-scrolls were size 320X240 so there may be some notable noise at full-screen. Total creation time was about 35 and a half hours and done over the course of about 10 days.
    I used a wide variety of digital effects I managed to come up with after quite a bit of experimentation. There's strobing overlays, strobing inversions, normal strobes, saturation flashes, lens flares, sped up double overlays, normal inversions, and text-scroll overlays. Note the large amount of strobing and overlaying. DO NOT WATCH IF YOU ARE EPILLEPTIC (may induce seizures for those folks... I dunno)
    Also, there are actually two songs used in this video, although they are two different versions of basically the same song. I mixed them together using Creative Labs Wave Studio. If you couldn't tell it was two songs then I did my mixing well. :)

    On to the fun-fun description:

    This video combines the anime series 'A.D. Police T.V. - To Protect and Serve' (hereforth shortened to ADP TV) with one of my most favorite Two-Mix songs. It's also the 5th opening theme song for the anime Detective Conan. (Well the Japanese version is anyways :) This song is in English! I went out and bought the BPM Cube CD specifically to get the International version of the song. Lyrics will follow the description because minami's English is sorta bad. :D
    Some of you may be wondering why ADP TV is a different anime from AD Police. Well ADP TV is to AD Police as Bubble Gum Crisis Tokyo 2040 is to Bubble Gum Crisis. Except it's /completely/ different from the original AD Police save the fact it is set in Genom City and deals with the AD Police and Boomer crime. There is no Leon, no Daley, and no Quincy. I think the DVD description summarizes this series best when it says this series is "A modern anime overhaul of NYPD Blues and Street Hill Blues type of syndicated cop show' (or something to that effect anyways) It's got a very real-noirish-gritty-action feel to it even though the actual animation quality isn't as colorful or high quality as BGC Tokyo 2040. (The darker coloration actually lends to it's atmosphere at times) Like other very popular anime with gun-action these days (Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, etc.) ADP TV employs a lot of bullet-time and interesting gun-fight animations. I tried to present quite a few here for your viewing pleasure. :)
    A few spoilers are heavily implied at, but not actually given away in the video. In fact if you don't watch the episode in which the spoiler is shown you won't know exactly what spoiler is implied in this video, hence I'm not gonna check the spoilers box. :P
    The central theme... hmm actually there's a bunch. At it's heart, this video is a techno-action tribute video. But it has a very high amount of drama and emotions. Primarily there's Sorrow, Anger, Love, Friendship, Hope, Regret, and Confusion. If I were to sum up the theme in one sentence however, I'd say: "In their Quest to unclose the mystery of the Boomers, the AD Police will endure trials that will test their Hearts to their limits and beyond." I think "Truth ~A Great Detective of Love~" chorus is very telling of this theme because the words are "Quest for love, quest for dream, quest for all truth!" Anyways I hope you will enjoy my first video to utilize digital effects and don't pound the link /too hard/. :D

    What does that guy say in the beginning and end?

    Intro: "I'm not... normal police"

    End: "A D... Police"

    Lyrics:

    TWO-MIX ("BPM Cube International")
    Truth ~A Great Detective of Love~ International Version

    Quest for love, quest for dream, quest for all truth!!
    Only way to dream is in time you're making out
    Waste no love, waste no dream, waste no more truth
    Going through the days you can praise a life for you,
    Hold your truth again

    Just when you show a smiling face one night
    Just when you hide something cold in your mind
    Everytime you remember that you've never been feeling safe so far

    And when you mean to be so nice to all
    And when you try to tell a lie to yourself
    Everytime you remember that you've always been feeling blue for long

    If your sadness and your pain would beat you up
    No need to break your heart, no need to be alone,
    You got somebody to share with you

    Quest for love, quest for dream, quest for all truth!!
    Take it to the place that you wanted to get once
    Break for love, break for dream, break no more truth
    Leading to a note that you used to see your name
    Quest for love, quest for dream, quest for all truth!!
    Only way to dream is in time you're making out
    Waste no love, waste no dream, waste no more truth
    Going through the days you can praise a life for you,
    Hold your truth again

    Just when you spend your time in quiet night
    Just when you're sighing for a sweet heart you care
    Anytime you remember how much
    You've been into this love for two

    And when you come to know a taste of tears
    And when you're ready for a touch of the skin
    Reminding you something tough in your heart,
    In your blood all the way

    If you stand alone in distance and far away
    Time could be freezed, you can always be near your love,
    You got somebody to be for you

    Quest for love, quest for dream, quest for all truth!!
    Make a tender kiss that you mark your sign of love
    Free for love, free for dream, free for all truth!!
    Always being here now before the magic works
    Quest for love, quest for dream, quest for all truth!!
    Only single moment, you live your life for love
    Pain for love, pain for dream, pain for all truth!!
    Breaking out the days you can praise a life for you,
    Keep your truth again

    Stay with me every day and night
    Don't let me down, let me be, let me be your love
    Stay with my heart anytime, anywhere
    Look around, we're leaving the loneliness

    Quest for love, quest for dream, quest for all truth!!
    Take it to the place that you wanted to get once
    Break for love, break for dream, break no more truth
    Leading to a note that you used to see your name
    Quest for love, quest for dream, quest for all truth!!
    Only way to dream is in time you're making out
    Waste no love, waste no dream, waste no more truth
    Going through the days you can praise a life for you,
    Hold your truth again
