Forget what you saw written for #12 (Give It Up). This, SH video #55 and KK video #6, was at the time of its release the fastest editing ever performed by Kai in any forum.
This video started with watching one episode of the anime and the real need to do something evil and aggressive, which the last video hadn't given much of an opportunity for, even though it broke a long string of vids with no aggro at all, going basically back to #45, the last KK video before this one.
The digital effects here are mostly transparent; there is a good deal of footage acceleration, and the end LOOKS like layering, but isn't. It's a rather clever composite of three crossfades that lets me look like I'm doing something that is just not possible in my editing environment.
The title of this video was originally something else, but it got spontaneously changed to the one up top, which is intentionally ambiguous. Maybe it stands for "Demon Eyes Flatten You" or maybe it doesn't mean anything and is just supposed to look badass.
This video was the first video to use Dimension Zero, and the first exclusive use of Samurai Deeper Kyo.
Shin Hats Self Grade: A-/B+. This video does not hang together on much beyond pacing, but in that department it's pretty well-done, and the coolness of the ending puts a positive polish on the relentlessness of the first 3:35.
