  • Comments: Ah... Konjiki no Gash bell. I've been wanting to make an AMV with this anime for quite a while. Finally figured out a way to kill both the clock thing (which appears on every bit of available Kngb footage) and the subs at the same time. I turned it into a wide-screen vid. Now, I don't usually make a video wide-screen unless it already is widescreen, but I had no choice for this video. And cropping it even more would have been too much. Anyways, once I heard the song "School" by Ayreon, I thought of Kiyomaro, and this idea fit so well, I couldn't help but do it. I did use a lot of "flash" timing in this video, and went crazy with clip change timing. Hopefully you'll all be able to follow this video pretty well, even if you haven't seen Kngb.

    The theme of this video is Kiyomaro's life in and out of "School". In school Kiyomaro is the smart obnoxious guy who doesn't have any friends, simply because he finds them annoying and "not as smart as him". Gash, a boy Kiyomaro's father rescued from a forest in England, comes to Kiyomaro to help open Kiyomaro, and get him to be nicer and get friends and stuff. At first Kiyomaro hates Gash, but when Gash shows Kiyomaro true friendship, and saves Kiyomaro with his demon powers, Kiyomaro learns what he must do to change. And Kiyomaro starts to change, as more demons come to challange him. He then truly starts to beleive in Gash, and they fight their hardest to end the horrible demon battles.

    I tried to capture how Kiyomaro changes, with his most emotional moments in school, and his most pressing battles out of school. I think I suceeded, and if you watch Konjiki no Gash Bell before watching this video, you will see how this song was just right for the theme.

    Lyrics:
    8. Day Eight: School

    [Fear] It's time to leave your sheltered cage
    Face your deepest fears
    The world is against you
    You're fighting back the tears

    [Me] All the kids were watching me
    I felt very small
    I could hear the laughter
    As I stumbled down the hall

    [Rage] (human) Seeking to find
    deep in the trauma as it leaves you behind
    (human) Bleeding it gone
    into the profit of the competition
    (human) Loving today,
    all of the feelings are they going away
    (human) Ending it now,
    I'd rather hear about the where and the how

    [Agony] The bigger boys they beat you up
    Out here you cannot hide
    No friends to help you
    No father at your side

    [Me] I swore that I'd get back at them
    But I was just a kid
    One day I'd show them
    I wouldn't rest until I did

    [Rage] (human) Seeking to find
    deep in the trauma as it leaves you behind
    (human) Bleeding it gone
    into the profit of the competition
    (human) Loving today,
    all of the feelings are they going away
    (human) Ending it now,
    I'd rather hear about the where and the how

    [Pride] You've got to prove you are not like the rest
    [Reason] There's no need if you know you're the best
    [Pride] That's not enough, let the other kids know
    [Reason] What's the use, go with the flow

    [Pride] Be a man, give into hate
    [Reason] You better learn to communicate
    [Pride] Better to learn to protect yourself
    [Reason] That's not the way to get out of this hell

    [Pride] See that kid, watch the smile on his face
    [Reason] He's just like you, feeling out of place
    [Pride] Well I don't care, let's show him who's boss
    [Reason] That's not the way to get your message across

    [Pride] Be a man, give into hate
    [Reason] You better learn to communicate
    [Pride] Better to learn to protect yourself
    [Reason] That's not the way to get out of this hell

    [Passion] Don't rack your brain, let it all go
    Savour the moment and feel your blood flow

    [Me] Then I got back at them
    Still acting like a kid
    Then I showed them
    But when I had I could not quit...

    [Rage] (human) Seeking to find
    deep in the trauma as it leaves you behind
    (human) Bleeding it gone into the
    profit of the competition
    (human) Loving today,
    all of the feelings are they going away
    (human) Ending it now,
    I'd rather hear about the where and the how
