Fun fact: Lain Iwakura does not appear in this video at all.
I've been sitting on this idea for maybe three years now. It was originally intended for the Old School Cartoon AMV Project which ended up collapsing before I got around to making either this video or the Cowboy Bebop/Scooby Doo video I had planned for it. Fast forward to a few months ago, and the theme for this year's Anime North contest was announced as non-anime television theme songs. Since many of the videos already made for OSCAMVP had already been be released, I figured now was as good a time as any to finally put this video together. The timing was helped by Anime Central's theme being trailer videos, which I figured this was close enough to qualify as a trailer. I had been struggling to get started on my VG5 segment at that point, so I figured a short video would be enough to get my creative juices flowing again. It worked, and thanks to this video, I am super primed for more editing!
This video was the runner-up in Anime North's theme category, falling short of beating He-Mon and the Masters of the Spiralverse (which was totally awesome and absolutely deserved to win), and at Otafest, Stay Frosty won an honorable mention for Best Trailer.
I got help on this video from different sources than I usually do, so I'd like to thanks to haunter103, CrackTheSky, Fall_Child42, and everyone else who commented on this during production. I should also thank badmartialarts for posting his Lain script on the forum and Beowulf for requesting that he do so.
