This is something that I feel the need to explain.
When I was young, I used to watch an anime titled "Gigantor". No, not the black and white one. The color one. The one for the early 1980's. I used to watch it on the Sci-Fi channel ALL the time.
Then suddenly, it disappeared.
For years, I searched for it. Infact, it took me 10 years to find a decent VHS copy of it.
The copies I received were, well, a BIT bad. The sound was terrible. The picture was horrible. But it was ok, I had the tapes. I felt good. I felt like I grabbed something out of my childhood that I thought I had lost forever.
It just so happened that after I got my first major credit card I was searching throught the DVD index of CDJapan. I thought to myself, "Eh, what the hell? I'll see if they have some 'Gigantor' DVDs."
Sure enough, they did. I was in shock. I immediately began to add them to my cart so I could buy them.
Apparently, the boxed sets had been out for two years in Japan, and the supplies were VERY limited.
I could only snag the first part(episodes 1-25). But wait, they're region 2 DVDs. Automatically, you should assume that they were VERY expensive. If you thought they were, you were right.
I spent about $330 on these FIVE DVDs. I didn't care though. I had the anime I love the most in my possesion AND in PERFECT quality.
So, now to the vid.
It's here. This is a testament to myself. I don't care about opinions. I don't care about feedbacl. I don't care if no one watches this.
This movie was made by me for me. I love it. It's my prized possession as far as AMVs go.
What is it about, you ask?
Well, it's just something I thought was neat.
I took the original theme song from the American version of Gigantor that was released with the anime in the 1980's and fit it to scenes I thought went with it.
It's not technical masterpiece. It's not AMV of the year.
It's what makes me happy.
For those of you out there that search for something for so long and finally find it...you'll know what I mean when I use the term "happy".
Also, the ending credits are really REALLY kid-like. I used to write like the font I used, so don't think too much of them.
Thanks to all who watch this video.
