    *WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS*

    I've always wanted to do a Sakurazuka Seishirou's profile, but a fitting song was hard to find, not to mention the lack of footage (he appears in a few episodes, sadly). Then I saw a beautiful movie, Lťon, which featured this song by Sting, and I started planning the video in my mind. The song contains metaphors as "diamonds", "clubs" and so on, so I decided to show my idea about their meaning in the specific context. The "spades" contain a in-joke, as it's another way to call the "pentacles" both Seishirou and Subaru use. I tried to focus on his work as a Sakurazukamori, hence the intro, when he kills his mother and inherits the title of Sakurazukamori.

    SHAPE OF MY HEART
    (Sting)

    He deals the cards as a meditation
    And those he plays never suspect
    He doesnít play for the money he wins
    He donít play for respect

    He deals the cards to find the answer
    The sacred geometry of chance
    The hidden law of probable outcome
    The numbers lead a dance

    I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
    I know that the clubs are weapons of war
    I know that diamonds mean money for this art
    But thatís not the shape of my heart

    He may play the jack of diamonds
    He may lay the queen of spades
    He may conceal a king in his hand
    While the memory of it fades

    I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
    I know that the clubs are weapons of war
    I know that diamonds mean money for this art
    But thatís not the shape of my heart
    Thatís not the shape, the shape of my heart

    And if I told you that I loved you
    Youíd maybe think thereís something wrong
    Iím not a man of too many faces
    The mask I wear is one

    Those who speak know nothing
    And find out to their cost
    Like those who curse their luck in too many places
    And those who fear are lost

    I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
    I know that the clubs are weapons of war
    I know that diamonds mean money for this art
    But thatís not the shape of my heart
    Thatís not the shape of my heart

    A few notes:

    - "The Queen of Spades" usually represents Death, that's why I chose Setsuka.
    - "a king in his hand": Seishirou's role as a Dragon of Heart is minor than his role as a Sakurazukamori, and I tried to show it here, the only scene where we can see all the Dragons of Earth together.

    Feedback is always appreciated.
