Hmm. This started out as an AMV Iron Chef practice (Hypeo is going to hold one), but I liked the idea, so I just went with it. You'll have to have watched the first three episodes of Wolf's Rain to really get the gist of the video, but it's enjoyable even if you haven't seen any of the show. Also, I want to say in advance that, while it's obvious I used fansubs for this video, there are some timing errors and flickers in the cross-fades and transparencies. This has something to do with the XviD encoding and Premiere, and I tried to work out as much of it as I could. I don't have to hard drive space to support all the footage I'd need in Huffyuv, and so I edited the XviD fansubs directly. Soooooo, you don't need to really point all the flickers and slight timing problems, I know about them ;^)
Some of my favorite scenes:
1:44 --- There's something about this piano chord playing while Blue jumps in the air over Kiba that fits perfectly to me. I don't know what it is exactly, just the sight of the dog hovering in the air as the piano's notes linger makes me sublime :^D
2:08 - 2:14 --- I love how scenes just fall into place. In the first episode, where Kiba and Hige leave the lab, you see their shadows against the wall as wolves, but when they walk out they're human.
2:55 - 3:19 --- The reason I like this one is because of the meaning the song attaches to it. Toboe was brought up by a human, but he comes to realize that he can't coexist with humans. He's questioning whether or not he should trust humans or not. Being the most naive of the wolfs also, he trusts the girl and accepts her food. Even later, he meets her while disguised as a boy. Later on, he reveals his true identity to her, and she's scared out of her mind. She even turns on him in the third episode. Don't downplay the importance of the overlay of the book either. That's the Book of Moon, and it's pretty important to the story line so far (Well, as far as I know.) Plus, I thought it'd be fun to throw MJ a bone and put in a little lyric sync :^P
2:20 - 2:44 and 4:52 - 5:02 --- I'm sure most of you would pick up on these two scenes, which are almost identical. I like to think of it as Tsume redeeming himself for allowing Gel to fall to his death. Combined with the lyric at 4:52 - 5:02 (Well, I guess it's all relative...), this is probably my favorite scene. Well, two scenes :^P
