  • Comments: "I love Bleach, I love this song, download NOW!!"..........no, that's no how my AMV was created....

    The Japanese word "Ageku" stands for "Finally" in English. There are a couple of Japanese words that mean finally, but I choose Ageku because it sounds the best. It also has that "uuuuu" at the end that really makes the title of the AMV feel complete. BTW, I wrote alot about the AMV. Just download it if you don't feel like reading.

    The Creation:

    Bleach - Ageku is very different from the type of AMV's I usually attempt to make. Instead of making a crazy beat/effect video like I'm doing with my other 3 adobe projects, I opened up Vegas 6.0 and tried a "soul" AMV. After watching Poogi and Hinata-san's "Darkness Over Light, The Other Side Of Me" (explained in the Inspiration), I got hooked to Trust Company's "Downfall" song and bought both of their albums. I would listen to their albums in my car with my friends and we liked nearly every song. The ones that really hit me were "The War Is Over", "Slipping Away", "Falling Apart", and "Finally". I thought the finally song could really fit the life of Ichigo so I decided to use Bleach and this song for the AMV.

    What did Ichigo finally get or recieve? I'll tell you. In the AMV, I slowly show how Ichigo started out as a new Death god knowing barely anything to when's he finally able to control and use his powers. First I show him learning things from Rukia, then I show him learning things from Sandal Hat, then I just show him off on his own.

    I wanted to make this AMV nice, smooth and fullscreen. I wanted people watching the video to feel as if they were floating through a colorless stream with their eyes closed searching for the meaning of life "It came out my mouth, so I had to write it." Adding effects to AMV's somewhat takes away from the message of the vid, but I started to do some before and after the chorus because I felt it was needed. Some Adobe effects were even brought in for the whole last minute of the AMV. Sony's Vegas is a really nice program that I got after watching Saiyan_pride's AMV's but I felt I didn't have enough experience with it to end it the way I wanted to with that program.

    The Inspiration:

    It all started when I was downloading AMV's about a year ago, back when Toushi was the shit "it's still hot though." I downloaded the AMV by Michelle Poogi and Hinata-san called "Darkness Over Light, The Other Side Of Me" back when it only had 1 opinion. I didn't like the AMV at first because I was still one of those amatuer AMV viewers that was always looking for those Naruto/beat type of AMV's all the time. I gave the AMV 3 stars without a thought of watching it again.

    A month later I clicked it and watched it again because I couldn't remember what AMV it was. That was the first time I ever watched an AMV over 15 times in a row! That AMV was AMAZING!!

    I then it to my brother, over 10 of my friends, and even my Mom!! After watching "Darkness Over Light, The Other Side Of Me" over and over, I gave it a high opinion, 5 out of 5 stars, and was able to realize AMV's are great by the inner soul power of it, not the effects.

    Michelle Poogi and Hinata-san are now my favorite duo of AMV creators and I attempt to download and opinion all of their latest creations. Just wanted to get that out of my head.

    Lyrics:

    Trust Company - Finally


    So it's over now (finally)
    I'm beneath
    And I'm crawling out
    On my knees

    I can hear what you said
    Echoing in my head
    I'm losing...myself

    Now I'm cold on the floor
    And I don't care anymore
    Cause its over...it's over

    I can feel, I can feel
    Like it's real, Like it's real
    I can feel, I can feel
    Now I can finally feel

    So I guess it's over now
    And you broke me down somehow
    Now I'm faltering
    I can see - I can be
    I can leave and shut you out

    I can feel I can feel
    Like it's real, Like it's real
    I can feel, I can feel
    Like it's real, Like it's real

    So I'm leaving now (somehow)
    Underneath
    As I slowly drown
    Finally

    I can hear what you said
    Echoing in my head
    I'm losing...myself

    I can feel, I can feel
    Like it's real, Like it's real
    I can feel, I can feel
    Now I can finally feel

    I'm shaking deep inside
    I'm having trouble breathing
    I need somewhere to hide
    Away cause I am healing

    I'm having trouble breathing
    Tomorro I am healing

    So I guess it's over now
    And you broke me down somehow
    Now I'm faltering
    I can see - I can be
    I can leave and shut you out

    I can feel I can feel
    Like it's real, Like it's real
    I can feel, I can feel
    Like it's real, Like it's real

    BTW: I was only attempting perform lip sync at the end of the AMV with the square effects. Any other lip sync you may see wasn't supposed to be lip sync. "including the start where he says "finally"
