I know that there is an ending theme to this anime with this title. This isn't that song.
That being said, this song immediately suggested itself for SH089 through other factors as well as the title. It took on more meaning with the imminent departure of Ian F-- (the guy parodied back in SH085), a good friend, cool guy, and worthy, level-headed club president, from the ranks of Animania via graduation....and thus this video was churned up through June and early July 2004. I had not done a full-on heavy metal video in like eight months, and had some severe problems with the production process, so it was a feeling like nothing else to be able to stand up and sing along at top volume with the full-quality version when it finally wrapped.
Effectswise, relatively little of what was available in terms of non-standard-looking stuff in the source anime was used, though there was a fair degree of VDub and AVS processing to do stuff like make Tezuka play against himself. This was done the old-fashioned way with filmography, though, so don't expect to see any cutouts.
This video will be shown in public for the first time in front of its main intended audience, and released on the internet after that. Premiere date is tentative and subject to finalization.
