  • Comments: Originally I wanted to make my Now and Then, Here and There video just a drama. It was one of the most powerful anime shows I'd seen, and I knew it was great drama material. So I went song searching, and came up with a few different songs. I actually completed another NTHT video before this one, but I didn't like it so I never released it. I decided to edit another one, which turned out to be very different from the first.

    Unusual for a NTHT video, I have to put an **epileptic seizure warning** on this video. While it's still a serious drama, it's also part action, and does have some constant blinking lights. I tried to keep the brightness of the flashes at a minimum, so sorry if it's too blinky for some people.

    I liked and picked this song for a few different reasons. Most importantly, I just loved the way it sounded. It has a powerful, more drama-like instrumental section in the middle, and I knew I could really bring out the drama of the series at that part. The rest of the song has lots of drums and guitars that I thought sounded just awesome. I knew the song was definitely different from the types of songs other people used for this anime so far, and I thought I could make something really different with it.

    The video basically tells the story of the main character, Shu, and the mysterious girl he meets, Lala-ru. I did use scenes of the other major character, Sara, but focsued mainly around the other two.

    Here's the lyrics:

    It was there that I saw you
    And it was there that I came
    As evening sighs,
    Rises up against the sky-line
    Let me come and have my leis

    You were fair and fey as a sun that evil day
    We were bold and life was great
    But as time went on
    I wondered what was wrong
    I wondered what became of you

    Let me hold you in my arms dear
    And let me melt in the heat of your gaze
    And let the clock strike one,
    Time and mind go marching on
    Let our sense of selves decay

    It was there that I saw you
    In the heat of a summer's embrace
    But as time went on
    I wondered what went wrong
    I wondered what became of you

    After four months of work, I think the video paid off. It turned out pretty much how I hoped it would,
    and I hope you like it. :)

    If you have any comments about the video, feel free to give me an opinion or an e-mail! ^_^
