  • Comments: I started this video at the beginning of September last year. The idea came to me the first time I heard the song. The lyrics reminded me so much of Berserk, and the style of the music fit Berserk's style perfectly.

    The concept of this video is told by Guts, and all the lyrics of the song are from his point of view. Some of the lyrics convey Guts' experiences on the battlefield. But the lyrics during the chours of the song bring out the true concept by describing how Guts looked up to Griffith, and how he understands the troubles Griffith is going through. The main concept is the relationship between guts and Griffith; as partners on the battlefield, as best friends, and as mortal enemies (immortal in Griffith's case).

    I am very confident of the connection between the song and anime in this video, and I am very proud with the result. It's not always you get a song and anime that match up so perfectly, they seem like they were made for each other.

    Lyrics:

    Ready for the enemy
    Hungry for the battle
    Fighting hard for victory
    In the army of the king
    Armed with shield and sword
    We mounted our horses
    Leaving on a sacred quest
    On our way to fight the holy war

    They attacked from different sides Hard pressed with numbers
    We could not even run nor hide
    We had to stand and fight
    Then I felt a blade of steel
    Penetrate my armour
    I did not dream the pain was real
    As I went down I knew my time
    Had come

    And then he rode into the night Towards that eerie distant light
    That seemed to charm him
    Until he came to a road that Disappeared beyond the last horizon

    He knew there'd be no way back
    Once he had vanished in the Blackness of Infinity
    And so he gathered all his strength
    Not to descend into the valley of death Into the valley of death

    I opened up my weary eyes
    The haze slowly lifted
    The mighty roar of battlecries
    Stopped ringing in my ears
    I gazed upon a friendly face
    He carried me to safety
    I told him of this frightening place and Of my journey back from the other side

    And then they rode into the night Towards that eerie distant light that Seemed to charm him
    A force so seductive and yet so Destructive and cruel
    Until he came to a road that Disappeared beyond the last horizon

    He knew there'd be no way back
    Once he had vanished in the Blackness of infinity

    And so he gathered all his strength Not to descend into the valley of death into the valley of
    death
    I followed that road to the edge of Eternity he knew there'd be no way Back once he had
    vanished in the Blackness of infinity
    I fought for my life for I had to survive The ordeal
    And so he gathered all his strength Not to descend into the valley of death Into the valley of
    death
