    Finally after many months my next video. The idea came to me after being introduced to the band Apocalyptica, which consists of three celloists who are well known for covers of famous Metallica songs. Their song Bittersweet features the lead singers from both The Rasmus (Lauri Ylolen) and HIM (Vile Valo) as well as a feature drummer. The song is beautifully crafted and builds up in sections to an amazing finish. The contrasting voices of the two singers are incredible and the harmonies memorable.

    The anime i chose is the Rurouni Kenshin OVAs 1-6. For those who have not seen this, beware as there are several spoilers, and you may not grasp the video entirely. it should still be enjoyable for all though ^^.

    This AMV is a tribute to the life of Himura Kenshin and the bittersweet curse placed upon him in the form of a cross-shaped scar. The form of the AMV represents a jigsaw puzzle, with pieces falling into place as it continues, finishing with the entire picture. So sit back, and enjoy my first drama video and my first AMVience Studios production.

    Please give an opinion. compare the amount of time it takes to make an amv, to the amount of time it takes to fill out a tiny score sheet and write a few words of encouragement.

    Opening music:
    Theme from 'The Rock'

    Closing music:
    The Heart Asks Pleasure First, by Michael Nyman

    Bittersweet Lyrics:

    I'm giving up the ghost of love
    And a shadow's cast on devotion

    She is the one that I adore
    Queen of my silent suffocation

    Break this bittersweet spell on me
    Lost in the arms of destiny

    Bittersweet
    I won't give up I'm possessed by her

    I'm bearing a cross; she's turned into my curse

    Break this bittersweet spell on me
    Lost in the arms of destiny

    Bittersweet
    I want you
    (How I wanted you)
    And I need you
    (How I needed you)

    Break this bittersweet spell on me
    Lost in the arms of destiny

    Break this bittersweet spell on me
    Lost in the arms of destiny...

    Bittersweet...
