    As I was working on a comedy and fun video for this year, I wanted to balance that out and do another dramatic video. I've had the concept for a while to work on a video that featured some of the more dramatic major deaths of characters in anime and thus decided to finally make a video to the idea.

    The song selection was the easiest as it's no secret that I love the works of Sarah Brightman and thought her version of Dust in the Wind was very moving. Secondly, I spent a lot of time on forums that had discussions on some of the most emotional and moving deaths of characters from Anime and from that formulated what I was going to use. I did however want to end the video on a positive note that death is balanced with the beginning of new life and search for a clip of a baby being born which I found from Arjura (the only clip of the show in the video)

    I added a few special effects, one being the tunnel of light you see at the beginning and during series transitions. For that I took the space warp effect from Cowboy Bebop and filtered it to provide the final version.
