    "In the battleground, there is no place for hope. What lies there is just cold despair and a sin called victory, built on the pain of the defeated. The world as is, the human nature as always, it is impossible to eliminate the battles. In the end, killing is necessary evil - and if so, it is best to end them in the best efficiency and at the least cost, least time. Call it not foul nor nasty. Justice cannot save the world. It is useless". King Arthur

    High Fantasy Animes are among my favorites. For that reason, I've always wanted to make an amv like this. The theme I try and portray is that war is fierce and cruel. The title "Glorificus Bellum" is Latin for Glorious War. I chose that title purely out of irony, as there are no glorious wars. This is also my first plunge into After Effects, and I just have to say the dynamic link is freakin awesome.

    My wonderful beta testers, who without them this amv would only be a shadow of its latter self.



    Anime Central 2010 "Best in Show"
    Otafest 2010 Honorable Mention: "THE EPIC!"

    "This is the English, which I have translated out of Latin, as the song is sung in Latin. Notice that the song is basically the story of the Razgriz, with a lot of repeating. Of course, anyone who has listened to the Requiem mass, or Gregorian chants will also notice that repeating the same verses several times is not uncommon to Latin songs."
