    Story:
    This video has an alternate storyline, which means I chose to show the story as something different than what originally happened in the Bleach series. In this video, Ichigo is in love with Rukia after she saved his life and transformed him into a Death God. However, Renji is jealous of their love, and once he finds Rukia again, he forces her to to come back to Soul Society with him, threatening to kill Ichigo. Ichigo decides to go after Rukia to save her from being executed for her crime of turning him into a Death God. But Renji won't let that happen, and the two have a fierce battle that leaves Rukia caught between them...

    I chose to show the story non-chronologically because I believe it can make things much more interesting, and I think it flowed better with the song's lyrics.

    Effects:
    I did some compositing work to get the new storyline to come across. Here are some before & after screenshots of After Effects and Photoshop work I did:
    Byakuya Sword Removal
    Forest Sword Clash
    Bankai Renji Sky
    Rukia Blood
    Sunset Sword

    Lyrics:
    Years ago a future was laid before me
    And I took the task and ran with it as far as I could go
    I always wanted to be a part of something like this
    You believed in me, and it's all I needed

    Before I go, please know that I love you with all of my heart
    My heart, my heart, is beating for you
    I want you to know that I'll be thinking of you wherever I go

    Tonight I am standing with you
    A chance to change the world as we know it
    The feeling of lights upon me feels so perfect
    You are here with me and it's all I need

    Before I go, please know that I love you with all of my heart
    My heart, my heart, is beating for you
    I want you to know that I'll be thinking of you wherever I go

    Before I knew you, before I saw your face
    Life had its reasons for keeping love away
    Spring turned to summer
    And summer then turned to fall
    Then came September
    We began it all

    Before I go, please know that I love you with all of my heart
    My heart, my heart, is beating for you
    I want you to know that I'll be thinking of you wherever I go
