  • Comments: This is a profile video for Yukimura, featuring his relationship with Sasuke, Saizo, and Kyo. It does have action since Yukimura's 'story' is mostly an ambitious drive to fight and win, but the majority of the video is based on the lyric. I'm considering this a romantic character profile to an underrated character.

    Editing:
    No effects. None. There are maybe 4 fades in this entire video and one very short layered shot that you shouldn't be able to spot out of the rest. If you hate effect-less videos, go away. This entire video is based on beat sync, inside clip sync, and lyrical sync (to the sound of the lyrics, as well as the meaning). It's a 'simple' and unambitious video, intentionally so.

    This is an xvid encode. If you have trouble viewing it in windows media player, PM or email me (arigatoumina@hotmail.com) and I'll set you up.

    Song:
    Those familiar with my vids should recognize Megumi Ogata as the voice actor of Kurama (YYH). She's also the voice actor of Yukimura, so this song is a natural choice. It wasn't written for Yuki's character, but I think it fits well.

    Lyrics:
    http://www.animelyrics.com/jpop/ogatamegumi/breath.htm

    Why is it that I'm plunged into grief
    with such dry eyes, when
    I really want to experience tears of endurance?

    Not for anyone's sake in particular
    it's all right to drop the thorns already;
    for the sake of that desired love, I'll dirty my hands too.

    No matter what sort of sudden chaos I feel, or how I discipline my passion,
    I take an embracing breath;
    within the body's moment, I can't help it.

    So just say it!
    Just say it, without hesitating.
    Deep inside your heart, deep inside your heart, what do you feel right now?
    Nothing but right now,
    just a little more -- nothing's been lost.

    So just say it!
    Just say it - the entire truth.
    All the grieving and all the suffering - I keep on taking it in.
    Just say it -- what'd you say?
    Just say it!
    What'd you say...? Just say it.

    Still, the more I get rewarded,
    I don't get hurt [again].
    The remains of a dream are still here, too.

    I can blame my heart, I can run from reality, but
    I don't want to do this alone.
    If we could do it together, it'd save me.

    So just say it!
    Just say it -- until there can be a reward,
    even if gentleness is a hindrance, I'll keep on holding on.
    Nothing but right now,
    just a little more -- until it's all been laid out bare.

    So just say it!
    Just say it - the whole truth.
    All the memories, all eternity - I keep on taking it in.
    Just say it! What'd you say?
    Just say it!
    What'd you say...? Just say it.

    So just say it!
    Just say it, without hesitating.
    Deep inside your heart, deep inside your heart, what do you feel right now?
    Nothing but right now,
    just a little more -- nothing's been lost

    So just say it!
    Just say it - the entire truth.
    All the grieving and all the suffering - I keep on taking it in.
    Just say it -- what'd you say?
    Just say it!
    What'd you say...? Just say it.

    Note: I was tempted to label this video as yaoi, or at least light shonen ai. I honestly can't tell how old Sasuke is supposed to be in the anime. He isn't really human, and when they show him 11 yrs later, he still looks as young as he does in the beginning (which is older than he was when he met Yukimura as a child). It's just hard to tell what their relationship is. If he's as young as he looks, I'd consider it a father/son or protective brother type relationship. But if he's supposed to be older, it's as conspicuous as Saizo's crush on Yukimura (which I take to be canon in the anime). So...take it how you will. I didn't add any context that wasn't there in the anime itself, but I'd include this in my collection of shonen ai vids - they're both guys, and it's a sweet relationship however you look at it.
