  • Comments: This project is our first venture into AMV creation; we began work on it in January of 2003 and completed it at the end of April. The inspiration for this music video spawned directly from the Xenogears OST track, "Small Two Of Pieces", a powerful and moving song which masterfully intertwined with the conclusion of Xenogears' own riveting storyline. The melody and poetic lyrics of this piece have an elegance all their own, and provided the perfect framework for the vision we wished to pursue. As we set out to realize this vision, we considered the greatest challenge to be the creation of a video which did not feature any of the more comedic aspects of Love Hina. While we loved the series for its humor, the real guilty pleasure of this anime was the confusing, irrational, and ever-evolving relationship between Keitaro and Naru. With that in mind, we strove to capture the essence of this more serious side of Love Hina, and in a manner that would tell its own engaging and coherent story. ~Restored Pieces~ is the result of our ambition. We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.

    Lyrics
    ------
    Run through the cold of the night
    As passion burns in your heart
    Ready to fight, a knife held close by your side
    Like a proud wolf alone in the dark
    With eyes that watch the world
    And my name like a shadow on the face of the moon

    Broken mirror, a million shades of light
    The old echo fades away
    But just you and I
    Can find the answer and then
    We can run to the end of the world
    We can run to the end
    Of the world

    Cold fire clenched to my heart
    In the blue of night
    Torn by this pain, I paint your name in sound
    And the girl of the dawn
    With eyes of blue and angel wings
    The songs of the season are her only crown

    Broken mirror, a million shades of light
    The old echo fades away
    But just you and I
    Can find the answer and then
    We can run to the end of the world
    We can run to the end
    of the world

    We met in the mist of morning
    And parted deep in the night
    Broken sword and shield and tears that never fall
    But run through the heart
    Washed away by the darkest water
    The world is peaceful and still

    Broken mirror, a million shades of light
    The old echo fades away
    But just you and I
    Can find the answer and then
    We can run to the end of the world
    We can run to the end
    of the world
    Run to the end
    of the world
