    After hearing about the new Tokyo Revelations OVA coming out back in November of 2007, I started to work on this video which I believe to be my biggest project yet,

    I spent approximately 3-6 hours a day on this video since November. Sometimes more, sometimes less. (this included fixing beats, rearranging clips, changing clips, and such)

    The video was extremely hard to complete due to the fact it's over six minutes long and mostly consists of a 3 episode OVAs. I hope I did well in bringing out the seriousness of the OVAs and tying it to the TV series and manga.

    About aspect ratio: Yes, I know the aspect ratio is wrong. I didn't realize that I had ripped the clips full screen when I was editing them. (Since I am used to full screen editing) and I only realized recently after everything was done and edited.

    I hope this video is not too confusing, I picked the song which I thought matched the OVA series nicely.

    I would like to give a special thanks to my dear good friend Chosen Exiled/Evil for providing me with the Japanese DVDs in order to get this video done.

    Forgive me if some of the clips seem slightly lower quality. It consists of mostly DVD ripped clips, but I had to use some raws of season 2 due to season 2 not being out on DVD yet.

    I would also like to thank my friend and great scan artist Erikamirou. Please visit her work.

    She is the one who colored those great manga scans.

    Many thanks to NightHawk and Hagaren Viper as well, for sticking by me and pointing out little things that needed fixed and make all the big difference.

    And without further ado....I do hope you enjoy my biggest project yet.

    The Truth Beneath the Rose Lyrics

    Give me strength to face the truth, the doubt within my soul
    No longer I can justify the bloodshed in his name
    Is it a sin to seek the truth, the truth beneath the rose?
    Pray with me so I will find the gate to Heavenīs door

    I believed it would justify the means
    It had a hold over me

    Blinded to see the cruelty of the beast
    It is the darker side of me
    The veil of my dreams deceived all I have seen
    Forgive me for what I have been
    Forgive me my sins

    Pray for me cause I have lost my faith in holy wars
    Is paradise denied to me cause I canīt take no more
    Has darkness taken over me, consumed my mortal soul
    All my virtues sacrificed, can Heaven be so cruel?

    I believed it would justify the means
    It had a hold over me

    Blinded to see the cruelty of the beast
    It is the darker side of me
    The veil of my dreams deceived all I have seen
    Forgive me for what I have been
    Forgive me my sins

    Iīm hoping, Iīm praying
    I wonīt get lost between two worlds
    For all I have seen the truth lies in between
    Give me the strength to face the wrong that I have done
    Now that I know the darkest side of me

    How can blood be our salvation
    And justify the pain that we have caused throughout the times
    Will I learn whatīs truly sacred?
    Will I redeem my soul, will truth set me free?

    Blinded to see the cruelty of the beast
    It is the darker side of me
    The veil of my dreams deceived all I have seen
    Forgive me for what I have been
    Forgive me my sins
