  • Comments: The best part of my job is filming local bands in concert. I heard this song and immediately thought of making a "travelling" story video using it. I picked up the original artist's performance of the song, and absolutely hated his vocals. So I went back to my tape, which had a direct line from the band's sound board and used that version instead. I shortened the song by one verse and chorus, though.

    For the video, it really ended up going in a different direction from how I first envisioned it. I originally thought of Alpha on her Vespa. Unfortunately, I forgot that most of her long trip in the second OVA series was done on foot. So slowly the video shifted into a light yuri romance between Alpha and Kotone. It's a little slow, but it fits the folksy mood of both the song and the OVAs.
