  • Comments: I wonder why is it that my projects nowadays seem to end up being something quite different from what I originaly meant. This project started as a "hey, I wanna do a Kannaduki no Miko tribute using this song", then to "I'll turn this into a character profile about Chikane" and finaly.. this. Can't really call it character profile anymore because I once again took liberties from the original series to create something else.

    This ended up to be a yuri-flavoured drama.

    Warning 1: This is not a funny AMV like most of my recent works.
    Warning 2: Heavy spoilers of Kannaduki no Miko

    There has been too long since I last made a serious AMV so I thought it's about time I'll make one again. That was the main reason for me to start this project, when I finaly got raws. The song used is from the series itself and is found on Kotoko's Kannaduki no Miko op/ed-single. It was originaly used as a BGM for.. was it ep7. Anyway, I really started to like it for it's a nice fast-paced j-pop song. I grew more fond to it when I got my hands on the lyrics translations. Around that time the project switched to be a character profile. It was when I got the raws and started editing it turned into it's current form.

    When I started making the first rough version I was surprised how much it felt like a real music video. I don't know if it was because the song is from the anime itself or not.. but when I noticed this I started to emphasize the music video feeling. Now to me it seems more.. well.. artistic :) I think this is how AMVs also should be more like.. *shrug* at least action AMVs.

    Our (Arctic Tribe) great leader Venomi told me he wanted me to make a more dark and angsty AMV.. It really isn't my style, but this one got little out of hand. I did mean to make a serious AMV.. but the result for combining the full song and the footage from the series I used ended up being something I didn't really expect. This AMV feels just wrong in some parts.


    I'm planning to create a subtitle-file for this one..

    lyrics/translations:

    anata no kotoba shiroi yami no todome
    sono me de mite kita urei no kyoukai wo
    kono mune de sotto kudaite kioku wa
    karamaru ginga
    nani mo nozomenai boukanshatachi sono musuu no ruri no tama
    kanashige ni jitto mimamotteta
    ( Your words the end of the white darkness )
    ( Your eyes have finally seen the boundary of grief )
    ( Breaking softly in my chest )
    ( Memories entwine among the Milky Way )
    ( Those uncountable spheres of lapis are bystanders who can't wish for anything )
    ( Quiet and sorrowful, they watched over )

    tatta ima sono te de Subversively nibuku hikaru kakera
    nigirishimeru yo kono te ni itami ga hashitte mo
    konna ni mo tomedonaku Inundation ochiru kanjou no umi
    hontou no yoake ga kuru made naite ii yo
    ( Just now, grasp subversively faint pieces of light with your hand )
    ( Join it with mine though it would rush the pain through it )
    ( Such an unstoppable inundation, the dripping pus of emotion )
    ( Until the real dawn comes it's better to cry )

    watashi no kotoba boyaketa kuusouga
    kono me de mite kita kuukyo na heibon wo
    sono mune de sotto utsushita furete wa
    ikenai mono ni kokoro nomikomare
    dou ni mo dekinai to shitagaki yaburisute
    himei dake zutto kodama shiteta
    ( My words blurred out visions )
    ( My eyes have finally seen the empty mediocrity )
    ( Softly copied in your heart )
    ( The touch causes my heart to be engulfed by bad things )
    ( No matter how I was unable to, just discard the sketches away )
    ( The screams were always echoing )

    tatta ima kono te de Glow Oozy akaku hikaru namida
    futari ga kakushitsuzuketa kanashimi no zanzou
    konna ni mo utsukushiku So Transiently tatakiwarareta kage
    hontou no yoake ga kuru goro hoshi ga mieru
    ( Just now my hand glows oozy with red tears )
    ( Both of us continued to hide the afterimage of sadness )
    ( So beautifully, so transiently, the shattered darkness )
    ( At the place where the real dawn comes, I see a star )

    Flow out oozy suppuration...
    I can't get out inundation...
    Flow out oozy suppuration...
    I can't get out inundation...

    tatta ima kokoro wo tsunaida awaku tsuyoi hikari
    kazoekirenai omoi ga tobitatte yuku yo
    konna ni mo utsukushiku Queer Tenderly kizamikomareta kizu
    sennengo doko ka de deatte mo sagashidaseru
    ( Just now the heart was joined by a strong, fleeting light )
    ( Uncountable thoughts go flying away )
    ( So beautiful, queer tenderly, the engraved wound )
    ( I'll start searching for you even if we'll only meet somewhere 1000 years later )

    tatta ima sono te de Subversively nibuku hikaru kakera
    nigirishimeru yo kono te ni itami ga hashitte mo
    konna ni mo tomedonaku Inundation ochiru kanjou no umi
    hontou no yoake ga futari wo terashidasu kara
    ( Just now, grasp subversively faint pieces of light with your hand )
    ( Join it with mine though it would rush the pain through it )
    ( Such an unstoppable inundation, the dripping pus of emotion )
    ( Because the real dawn will start to illuminate us )

    Flow out oozy suppuration...
    I can't get out inundation...
    Flow out oozy suppuration...
    I can't get out inundation...
