Yes, that's the name of the video. :P
Despite a rather cheesy title (what would you name it?), this isn't exactly a comedy video, by any measure. Blending styles used in opening sequences and episode trailers, this video takes Full Metal Panic, a highly unique mix of the mecha action, espionage and shoujo romance genres, and combines it with the opening theme from one of last year's best PS2 games, Metal Gear Solid 2, a tactical espionage strategy game. The end result - well, call it a trailer for this highly enjoyable anime series. While not as technically complex as To Live By The Sword (one of my earlier works), this video did take about a week of harried nights filled with rendering to complete - but the most obvious technical edits are the scenes where credits appear, and the ending title (which usually appears on black in the opening title, but which I superimposed over a scene from the first episode). The rest of it is mostly selecting and timing suitable scenes that went with the music. Video footage taken from high-quality fansubs - this series is so new that even the Taiwan DVD "companies" haven't gotten their hands on it yet.
*UPDATE* - There appear to be occasional problems with the FTP server hosting this video - most of the time these problems are temporary, so do try again later. The server DOES exist, I assure you. ^_^;
