Major manga spoilers here, though no anime spoilers.
Before chapter 77 I was going to go a completely different route with this amv. I had been planning it long before I even read the chapter. After it happened, I cried. It is *really* hard to get me to cry for anything fantasy-related, but I just grew to attached to the character more than usual.
After that I wasn't sure of what to do because I just didn't have the motivation to make a Nana/Ren video knowing the outcome of 77, especially since the anime hadn't gotten that far yet. However, it then hit me that the song still would fit if I changed the perspective a bit. To be honest, I sort of feel like it makes the point even more meaningful. It also led to me trying new things for myself as I gain more experience with editing. While I do hope people in general can understand the concept of it, I have a feeling that Nana manga readers (Nana/Ren fans more specifically) are going to be the ones to understand it best.
