***First off, after getting some comments about not being able to
play the video or not hearing any sound, just want to point out that
the video is encoded using mpeg2 (so you would have to have some
sort mpeg2 decoder codec installed on your pc in order to see the
video), and as for the sound, the program you're using to see the video
has to know how to play back mp3 format as the audio track is encoded
as an mp3 track (ie. media player, winamp ... for example should work).
If you are still having issues seeing or hearing the
video, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll try to
help however I can.
Ok, so with that out of the way, a short description of the video:
This video's debut was at Otakon where
it competed in Otakon's AMV
contest under the Drama/Serious category.
The video centers on the main character, Onizuka,
from the animé "Great Teacher Onizuka,"
and basically shows how Onizuka is not like
any other teacher (or person for that matter).
The video is more like a profile of Onizuka, and
although I classified it in the serious category,
many parts of it are pretty funny.
Anyhow, this video contains some spoilers so I would
highly recommend that you see the series before
seeing the music video. (Also by seeing the animé
first, I think it will help understand some parts
of the video better and therefore make the music
video more enjoyable)
Got many comments saying that the video was in the wrong
category ... well the thing was that I had a hard time figuring out
which category to put it in myself. (ie. I couldn't categorize it as a
comedy because although the video does have some
funny parts, in whole, it is not a comedy. (at least i didn't
think so), then I thought about the upbeat/rhythm category,
but I didn't think it fit that category either as I didn't
think the song/video was jumpy enough for that (just a wild
guess, but I'm supposing many people thought it should have
been in the upbeat/rhythm category ... ). So the
remaining category was the serious/dramatic category,
where one of the subtopics that fall under this category
was "character study" which in my mind fit this video the
most ... therefore I went with that. ^_^;
That's it I guess.
thanks so much and enjoy the video!!
