  • Comments: Originally, this was supposed to be my first attempt at a "shounen-ai" video, but I'm not sure if it actually turned out that way. If anything, the only other way to classify it is "sentimental". I guess it all depends on the viewer. This video is my own personal favorite, of all the videos I have edited.

    Programs used:
    - DVD Decrypter
    - VirtualDubMod
    - Video Explosion Deluxe
    - Paint Shop Pro 7
    - TMPGEnc

    My plan was to focus only on Goku and Sanzo, but there were some scenes that just worked too well with Hakkai and Gojyo - so I couldn't help but include everyone. I also used scans from the manga (as I greatly prefer it to the anime) and artbooks to make it a little different.

    There isn't much in this video regarding effects - it's pretty much scene-by-scene with the occasional still image. I was having a problem with a "splitting line" at the top of the video, but I was able to cover it up. However, there were a few scenes I had to replace entirely with screenshots (frame by frame...not so fun). I won't say which scenes, though ^.^

    I like what I've done with the manga scans & coloured art, but it's possible that they will look weird to a lot of people too. Also, I didn't use any footage of Konzen, Tempou or Kenren (except one quick scene that refers to "Heaven") - I wanted to focus on the guys as they are now. I also used two screencaps from Saiyuki Reload (fansub) in the intro.

    Lyrics
    Goku to Sanzo:

    I never thought,
    That one day you'd become a part of my life
    Still you were always with me
    When I lay my head down at night
    Could you really be here with me?
    Has my wish come true tonight?

    'Cause now, now it seems
    I'm wide awake in this dream
    And I'll do, I'll do anything
    To stay here forever
    And if this is a dream
    I'm not going to wake up
    But if I'm awake I won't close my eyes again


    Gojyo & Hakkai:

    Though I feel like I'm flying
    I'm sure my feet are still on the ground
    Open my eyes, and it's amazing
    How my world has changed when I look around
    And it's like I found a road straight to heaven
    The road has lead me right here to you

    'Cause now, now it seems
    I'm wide awake in this dream
    And I'll do, I'll do anything
    To stay here forever
    And if this is a dream
    I'm not going to wake up
    But if I'm awake I won't close my eyes again


    Sanzo to Goku, Hakkai & Gojyo:

    Everything I'll ever need,
    Is standing right here in front of me
    You've given more than Iíll ever ask of you
    Now all I can do
    Is give forever to you?

    'Cause now, now it seems
    I'm wide awake in this dream

    'Cause now, now it seems
    I'm wide awake in this dream
    And I'll do, I'll do anything
    To stay here forever
    And if this is a dream
    I'm not going to wake up
    But if I'm awake I won't close my eyes again
