    Really it was designed as a story, but most cons push it to action. I guess if gets to show why should I care if it was moved, right?
    But it makes me wonder if 'they' have no idea what a true action/upbeat is.

    Godix put it best in his fine editorial "So You Want To Be A *GOOD* Anime Music Video Editor?":
    "Action/Upbeat [...]The lyrics often have little relevance to the video. Hard cuts are frequently used and cutting is done at a quick pace, to the point where it's rare for clips to be more than a second or two long. Scenes are usually selected for how much movement they have in them rather than a story coherence."

    And that is so not this AMV.
