  • Comments: I'm so proud of this video. I honestly have no real regrets about it other than the video footage not being perfect. I thought the song went extremely well with the footage and I'm just glad I was the first here to realize that ^_^. What are you waiting for? Download now!!!...

    This is the 17th video I've done using crappy Windows Movie Maker (will be upgrading to real software soon). That being said, I was extremely happy with how this video came out and reworked it several times to get it right. The anime is the Utena movie (The Adolescence of Utena) and the song I chose seemed to just perfectly portray Anthy and Utena's relationship. I chose the movie over the series because I kinda like the more sexually free Anthy as opposed to the docile and repressed TV series version of her. Also, because I had the footage ready to roll :p Please listen to the lyrics while watching it because they seem to match up very well with the clips. The inspiration for this was on a road trip with my parents, listening to the oldies station. I tell you, nothing will inspire you more than listening to all radio stations (not just the one's you like) because you'll just hear something that fits come out of nowhere. I had the video pictured in my mind while hearing the song and I knew I had to get it done. Big thanks goes to Adiamante for helping me with the bumpers, it really gives it a little boost since the MS Paint bumpers can be very icky looking. Hope you enjoy it and comments are HIGHLY encouraged!

    Song lyrics...

    I saw her sitting in the rain,
    raindrops falling on her.
    She didn't seem to care.
    She sat there and smiled at me.

    And I knew (I knew, I knew, I knew, I knew)
    she could make me happy (happy, happy).
    Flowers in her hair, flowers everywhere.

    I love the flower girl, oh, I don't know just why.
    She simply caught my eye.
    I love the flower girl, she seemed so sweet and kind.
    She crept into my mind.

    Suddenly the sun broke through (see the sun).
    I turned around she was gone (where did she go).
    And all I had left was one little flower from her hair.

    But I knew (I knew, I knew, I knew, I knew)
    she had made me happy (happy, happy).
    Flowers in her hair, flowers everywhere.

    About 2 years ago, Tsukin (Michael Walter) wanted to do a remaster of Liquid Petals and I gave it my blessing. He finished and sent it to me a few months later but never announced it or uploaded it anywhere. I decided to add the original bumpers and upload it for him. I've added a direct link and marked it as "Tsukin Remaster" in the comments section. Big thanks goes to Tsukin for making this video look much nicer than before. Enjoy...
