Short and sweet information for a short and sweet video.. ^_~
~ The second collaboration between Himemiya and Tenjou..
~ Created solely with episode 11 and a bit of episode 10 of "Maria-sama ga Miteru", or "The Virgin Mary is Watching You".. So obviously ***SPOILER ALERT*** for those episodes.. ^^
~ And accordingly, this is therefore based on the relationship between Satou Sei and Kudou Shiori..
~ Himemiya heavily edited Delerium's "Innocente" which was originally 6:29 minutes down to 2:21 in order to be able to work with their extremely limited footage..
~ We had only been introduced to the series "Maria-sama ga Miteru" the week before we started, Tenjou thought up the idea for the video during the week, and Himemiya finished the cut song a day after Tenjou mentioned it to her..
~ The video was completed over Easter weekend, both working at Tenjou's computer on and off for 3 days..
~ The introductory piano piece is performed by Yoko Kanno, and apparently found on one of the "Cowboy Bebop" soundtracks..
~ Who else notices the obvious, obvious reference to Oscar Francois de Jarjeyes of "Rose of Versailles" in the opening and ending?.. ^_~
***** EDITED VERSION LYRICS *****
"Innocente" by Delerium
You can't see my eyes
They don't see yours
Hear me when I say
They don't mind at all
It's the rain that I hear coming
Not a stranger or a ghost
It's the quiet of the storm approaching
That I fear the most
It's the pain that I hear coming
The slightest crystal tear
Drops to the ground in silence
When my love is near
Darling, when did you fall?
I couldn't feel you
Darling, when.. when did you cry?
I couldn't hear you
I suppose it is the price of falling in love
I fear that it is the price of falling in love
