    Spoilers ahead (like, end of the anime type spoilers ;p). This video focuses on Kiba and his quest to find 'Paradise.' In Wolf's Rain, a legend is told that wolves will, with the help of a mysterious woman called the 'Flower Maiden,' a being created from the essence of lunar flowers, find a way to return to Paradise and in doing so, will make the world start over so it coould become Paradise again. On Kiba's journey, he ends up finding the flower maiden, Cheza, and struggles to keep her from harm. Eventually, they create Paradise together, and the world (including themselves and everyone living in it) is reborn again.

    "Into the Fire" seemed like a great song for this video, mainly because of the dramatic/sentimental atomsphere. I did my best to focus on Kiba and Cheza and the strong bond they have with eachother (so-called romance, if you wish?). Also, not so many big effects in this one. I mostly just used brightness/contrast, blur, and glow filters, and some cookie cutter stuff. There's a scene with some masking toward the middle of the video, when Kiba is his dream-like state.

    -- Technical Notes --
    Programs used: Sony Vegas 6.0, Avisynth, VirtualDubMod (xvid), Megui (x264), Besweet

    I strongly suggest downloading the local .mp4 version of this video if your computer can handle it (download VLC Media Player HERE). The quality is better than the Xvid version, and the file size is also slightly lower.

    It seems like I had a ton of people helping me out with this video...a few who sat through multiple betas. I'm having a hard time remembering who all I gave betas to, so if I left you out, let me know. ;D

    Thanks for all your help you guys, even if it was just taking the time to watch it and tell me whether you liked it or not. Also I should thank Kaxi and Bauzi for their guides on x264 compression....and CrackTheSky again for helping me when I was still a little confused. ;p

    ....I think that's it? Enjoy the video. :O

    -- "Into the Fire" by Thirteen Senses --

    Come on, come on
    Put your hands into the fire
    Explain, explain
    As I turn and meet the power
    This time, this time
    Turning white and senses dire
    Pull up, pull up
    From one extreme to another

    From the summer to the spring
    From the mountain to the air
    From Samaritan to sin
    And it's waiting on the end

    Come on, come on
    Put your hands into the fire
    Explain, explain
    As I turn and meet the power
    This time, this time
    Turning white and sense dire
    Pull up, pull up
    From one extreme to another

    From the summer to the spring
    From the mountain to the air
    From Samaritan to sin
    And it's waiting on the end

    And now I'm alone I'm looking out, I'm looking in
    Way down, the lights are dimmer
    Now I'm alone I'm looking out , I'm looking in
    Way down, the lights are dimmer

    Ooooh

    Come on, come on
    Put your hands into the fire
    Come on, come on
