    This video is something quite special. I wanted to do this for about half a year, when the DVDs finally arrived I started editing right away. The entire process of doing the special effects and the transitions brought some new fun for me, since it was the first time I really stuck on them. It's just that I thought that the song needs special treatment to hold the mood it was producing, so I made the whole video pretty smooth.

    The storyline features all the important moments of the anime, while not really being chronologically. My scene-selection focus was always on getting the best scenes out of the 12 episodes. When I was finished I still had a lot of scenes to use, but no room anymore. I left out the entire OVA for example, I just couldn't fit the scenes in the video anymore. So what I want to say is that this AMV is full packed with a lot of emotional content, if this doesn't make you want to watch the show, then you really must hate Shonen-Ai.

    Techniqual Details:

    This video has been encoded in x264.

    You will either need VLC or http://cccp-project.net/download.php to view it. If it still doesn't play for you send me a PM on the forum or e-mail me and I'll see what I can do.

    And since I got me some help from Streicher on this matter I might as well give him some thanks like everyone does by mentioning him here. (See I'm clever, I did it the cool way)

    Oh, and sorry for the macroblocks, but they have nothing to do with the codec or anything else, I'm not much into avs filtering so I didn't really take the time to get them out of the source footage. Just...ignore them, please?

    Song Lyrics:

    There is Lyric Synch in the video, so you should really check them out since they're hard to understand at times.

    CocoRosie - Beautiful Boys
    (feat. Antony from Antony And The Johnsons)

    Those, those beautiful boys
    Those, those beautiful boys

    Born illegitimately
    To a whore, most likely
    He became an orphan
    Oh what a lovely orphan he was
    Sent to the reformatory
    Ten years old, was his first glory
    Got caught stealing from a nun
    Now his love story had begun

    Thirty years he spent wandering
    A devil's child with dove wings
    He went to prison
    In every country he set foot in
    Oh how he loved prison
    How awfully lovely was prison

    All those beautiful boys
    Pimps and queens and criminal queers
    All those beautiful boys
    Tattoos of ships and tattoos of tears

    His greatest love was executed
    The pure romance was undisputed
    Angelic hoodlums and holy ones
    Angelic hoodlums and holy ones

    All those beautiful boys
    Pimps and queens and criminal queers
    All those beautiful boys
    Tattoos of ships and tattoos of tears

    All those beautiful boys
    Pimps and queens and criminal queers
    All those beautiful boys
    Tattoos of ships and tattoos of tears

    All those beautiful boys
    Beautiful boys...
    All those beautiful boys
    Beautiful boys...

    Those beautiful boys...

    Well, I hope some of you will enjoy this video as much as I do, I'm sure the song choice will surely not appeal to everyone but I love this kind of music and I really hope that I've done it justice.

    Have fun...or was it have emo? :>
