- Title: The Banishment of Shishio
- Premiered: 2004-09-17
- Ayreon The Banishment
When I heard the song "The Banishment" from Ayreon's very first album. Shishio immediately popped into mind. A while ago I got a request to do a Shishio video, since Makoto Shishio is rarely portrayed directly in a decent Rurouni Kenshin AMV.
So, I had recently gotten my new dell, with a new DVD rom in it. My Rurouni Kenshin box set DVDs wouldn't work on my old DVD rom, but worked just fine on my new one. So I start ripping some footage and quickly get to work on this video.
I cut the song, to skip to the main part of the song (cutting off most of the instrumental orchestrated beginning, but leaving enough to do my story intro) and cut the entire ending off the song, and ended it at the next best place.
It starts out with some text I made myself, introducing Kenshin, showing that he has a task, to banish Shishio. I explain a little about Shishio. I then go to Kenshin as he is about to meet Saitou, and learn of the task he has to complete. He then departs, leaving Kaoru behind.
Kenshin meets Shishio, but Shishio has a couple tricks up his sleeve (or on his glove) that put Kenshin out of the fight for a little while. Saitou then jumps in to take his place, and also fails. Everyone who tries, just can't beat Shishio.
Then Kenshin awakens. And he rises up to banish the evil Shishio, that has corrupted the world to achieve his goals. And our story ends as Shishio burns, and takes Yumi with him... to hell.
