    !SPOILER - complete Enies Lobby and the battle for Robin are shown in this AMV - SPOILER!

    This year's AMV is a character study about Nico Robin. When I watched the Ohara episodes last Christmas I simply knew that I had to create an AMV about her sad story (which has a happy end, because Luff and her crew don't want to give up on her). I've searched for another two weeks until I found the song that fitted perfectly to the story I wanted to tell.

    I needed 7 months to create this AMV (besides writing my thesis and my final exams in English), but I think every minute I put into it was worth it :).

    -------------

    Story:

    Nico Robin stands on the Tower of Justice. She is prepared to die for Luffy and the strawhat crew and this way to end her suffering. There has never been anyone in her life to care for her, neither her mother nor strangers nor Crocodile. Therefore, she's surprised when Luffy and the strawhat crew won't listen to her and decide to save her, nontheless.
    Slowly, Robin realizes that she wants to live. That she wants to share her life with that crew. And that Luffy and the strawhat crew are the people she has been looking for so long. The people who will save her.

    Lyrics:

    Somebody Save Me (Krypteria)

    I bare my soul, stripped on a silver platter
    My back to the wall, blindfolded, tied up, battered
    Yearning for someone, someone to end this misery
    But will that someone, anyone, ever come and rescue me?

    (Refrain)
    Somebody save me Iím close to the edge
    Someone to fill me with life give me dreams I never had
    Somebody save me and answer my pleas
    Someone to lift me back up and to put my heart at ease
    Somebody help me please.

    Outcast, alone, searching but never finding
    Iíd give my all for a trace of silver lining
    Yearning for someone, someone to end this mysery
    But will that someone, anyone, ever come and rescue me?

    (Refrain)
    Somebody save me Iím close to the edge
    Someone to fill me with life give me dreams I never had
    Somebody save me and answer my pleas
    Someone to lift me back up and to put my heart at ease
    Somebody help me please.

    Thereís not much left for me to lose,
    Can anybody heal these wounds?
    Someone to start my life anew
    Whereís that someone
    Where are you?

    (Refrain)
    Somebody save me Iím close to the edge
    Someone to fill me with life give me dreams I never had
    Somebody save me and answer my pleas
    Someone to lift me back up and to put my heart at ease
    Somebody help me please.
