If there was a contest to see which anime was least likely to be used in a music video, in terms of overall popularity, Kenshin TV episode 95 might well come in dead last. Well, maybe after Goldfish Warning, but that isn't known and sneered at quite as much as this, the video source for Shin Hatsubai video #65. Perhaps the least-liked conclusion of a popular series so far, but with the right band and the right song it turned into a decent video.
Effects on this one utilized both AviSynth and MEIMI to give Kaoru a delay-"shadow" and a more interesting background moving with the music, and some VDub trickery in a few other less obvious spots, in one case because I screwed up and reused a clip I shouldn't've. Plus, ofcourse, crossfades all the hell over the place (mostly in and out of shims); this video sets a new record for SH with about 34.
Shin Hats Self Grade: B/B+. Decent, but not great; any deficiency is due to a lack of interesting material in the episode used rather than to my compositional skills.
