    This AMV was really a grueling piece of work.. Over the span of about three months, I spent roughly 20 minutes a day on this vid, and those days didn't really amount to much work. I'm very glad that I got through finishing this video, and I hope that it doesn't seem "fragmented". This is due to the fact that I ran out of footage towards the end of the vid, and I used up most of the good scenes for the first minute or so. The story which drives the vid is mainly that of Kenshin and Kaoru's relationship with one another. Kaoru is torn by the fact that Kenshin is a killer, and she feels the need to escape the constant bloodshed which envelopes their lives. But towards the end, they resolve their troubles and find peace with each other. I've tried using moderate effects for emphasizing certain parts of the vid, but sometimes I used them just for fun. I also used many transitions throughout the vid, in order to give it a "flowing feel" to the lyrics, but I'm not sure if it worked out that good.

    Thanks to Dcdeveloperx and AisuzuZwei for their support throughout the making of this video. ;)

    Lyrics to "Falls Apart"-

    She falls apart,
    By herself
    No one's there to talk or understand
    Feels the sting,
    Dries her eyes
    Finds herself opens the door and sighs
    People see right through you
    Everyone who knew you well
    Falls apart, might as well
    Day is long and nothing is wasted

    Runaway, runaway
    Wanna hold on to you but you're going away
    Runaway, runaway
    Wanna hold you tomorrow but you're leaving today

    You walk along,
    By yourself
    There's no sound nothing's changing
    They've gone away,
    Left you there
    Emptiness is nothing you can share
    All those words that hurt you
    More than you will let it show
    Comes apart,
    By yourself
    All is well and everything's wasted

    Runaway, runaway
    Wanna hold on to you but you're going away
    Runaway, runaway
    Wanna hold you tomorrow but you're leaving today

    Sometimes I feel around
    It scares me some I can't be down
    All this time to be on my own
    In is out to be again
    This time will waste another friend
    I know where they will
    Know where they'll runaway

    She falls apart,
    No one there
    Hold her hand it seems to disappear
    Falls apart, might as well
    Day is long and nothing is wasted

    Runaway, runaway
    Wanna hold on to you but you're going away
    Runaway, runaway
    Wanna hold you tomorrow but you're leaving today
    Runaway runaway
    Hold on to you but you're going away
    But you're leaving today
    But you're leaving today
