I wasn't planning on making a video to the anime when i finished watching it. It was very heavy and had me all bummed out for a few days. On the way to work i heard this song on the radio and I just had to make the video. I spent about 100 hours on this video getting things converted, cleaned up and finding the best possible scenes. I had to rewatch the whole series again.
This video won't be the same unless you watch the anime before the video as you won't pick up on the relationships between the characters and the events that make it really depressing in the first place.
Regardless of the depressingness of the video, it was fun to make. Very simple, but I had a much bigger impact that way. Flashy effects would have ruined it.
The XVID encode is crazy silly small. This video was made for xvid style compression. So don't be fooled by the size. The MPEG comes in at around 50 megs.
Uber Depressing Video Won Best Drama at Anime Boston 2003.
