  • Comments: Finally, my first solo video! I had known for a while that I wanted to edit a very sentimental Chrno Crusade video; a very strange hope for all of the action, horror, and humor that take place in the excellent show. It wasn't until a few months ago that I found a singer worthy enough to evoke this romantic sentiment: Michael Tolcher. "The Sun Song" is one of my favorites of his, and I was surprised to see how easily I was able to connect his words to each episode in the series. The song's lyrics bring to mind a sense of new beginnings, fresh starts, and sentimental journeys.

    I had a different goal in mind when I had first set out to work on this video in November (though it wasn't until recently that I decided to buckle down and see the editing through). My original intent was to have no cheesy/sappy romantic ties; it was just to show Rosette and Chrono's never-ending friendship and eternal support for one another. I soon realized how difficult it would be to show just that, and I ended up incorporating their more affectionate (though still not overly dripping with cheese) moments as well. Never, however, did I wish for it to be anything but a light-hearted, feel-good video (which I only hope I achieved).

    I wanted "One More Beginning" to be different from what a typical Chrno Crusade AMV might feel like...something with little to no intense action or flashy effects. I tried to take a step away from the series' amazing battle scenes (and violence for that matter >_>) and to emphasize its underlying warmth (and trust me, it's there ;] ). Overall, I hope the video itself was successful in conveying these thoughts. Thanks for taking the time to read my comments, and I hope you enjoy the video! I'd love to receive feedback on how well (or how poorly) I managed to execute my ideas, so please leave me an opinion and/or a QC. Thanks again!

    This video was a finalist in ACen's 2006 AMV Contest.
    This video also won Judges' Choice at Anime Boston's 2006 AMV Contest. Enjoy!



    The Sun Song by Michael Tolcher
    One more beginning for as long as it lasts
    A new day for the living all forgiving of the past
    A heavy foot steps to the dark unknown
    This is a mystery
    No security of home

    Here comes the sun
    Over my head
    Show me a path and i'll be led
    Walking alone
    I'm not afraid
    I have my wings to fly away

    There's been a fever burning holes in your skin
    A million questions
    Let the journey begin
    Want with a reason and you'll understand
    The source is infinite
    So, choose your demand

    Here comes the sun
    Over my head
    Show me a path and i'll be led
    Walking alone
    I'm not afraid
    I have my wings to fly away

    Send in the messengers
    Let the story be told
    Set free philosophy with the medicines old
    One in a body of a sacred plan
    Part of a vision
    Believe and you can

    Here comes the sun
    Over my head
    Show me a path and i'll be led
    Walking alone
    I'm not afraid
    I have my wings to fly away
