  • Comments: The video is mostly about the love between Keitaro and Naru, and the hardships they have been through while remaining such good friends. I think that the song fits this theme somewhat well, and I really like the way this video is turning out so far.

    Unlike other Love Hina videos that I have seen, I am not going to include any of the ridiculous slapstick humor that the show is appearently famous for. Most videos have scenes of Keitaro getting punched, kicked, and otherwise abused. This kind of bothers me since it seems to distract from the romantic or serious aspect of a video of that nature. Mind you, it's not mine to say what the author had planned for that video, so maybe the slapstick was an important aspect... but I am staying away from it and only using those scenes which are really important and relavent to the subject matter.

    Tech info:

    Time spent on original vid: dunno total hours... 'bout a month passed by.
    Time spent on remastering: I'd say 24+ hours at least. Again, I don't really keep track. It's been a couple of weeks since I began.

    This is the remastered version of my favorite AMV creation to this date. I hope you enjoy the video. Through the remastering process, I reauthored many of the scenes. I added things, replaced things, wracked my brain, drank lots of caffeine, and even did what will no doubt go down in history as the dumbest idea ever: A manga lipsynch. Dumb as it may seem, I kinda like it.

    All in all, the vid has turned out better than I could have hoped for. It's, like, beyond my vision. I'm moved. And sleep deprived.

    The local download is the low quality version. I don't have anywhere to host a HQ version, and I don't want to take up too muvh room on the org's computer until I start pledging and donating.
