  • Comments: This video was half of a concept that I roiginally wanted to do for ACEN this year as they had a special categoy for "Broadway" videos. I had half of the souce, Goldenboy, but couldn't think of another source to use that would work with this. I thought tenchi would work, but quickly discarded that after watching the source.

    So I had GTO in my Netflix queue and watched the first episode and knew it was perfect. This was after the ACEN deadline so I decided to finish this anyway as I thought the concept was funny.

    I am pretty satisfied with the results. The song is from the Musical "Into the Woods" which is one of my all time favorite musicals. It starts out happy and cheery and then becomes very dark as it plays out the aftermath of many traditional stories like jack in the beanstalk, conderella, rapunzell etc. The song is sung by two princes who are chasing after difficult madiens. The are cocking and sure of themselves and have no idea why any woman wouldn't want to be with them. This makes for a very good parallel with some anime characters.

    Anyway, hope you like it as much as I do.

    Won Best Comedy, at OhayoCon 2006.

    Lyrics:
    [CINDERELLA'S PRINCE]
    Did I abuse her
    Or show her disdain?
    Why does she run from me?
    If I should lose her,
    How shall I regain
    The heart she has won from me?

    Agony!
    Beyond power of speech,
    When the one thing you want
    Is the only thing out of your reach.

    [RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE]
    High in her tower,
    She sits by the hour,
    Maintaining her hair.
    Blithe and becoming and frequently humming
    A lighthearted air:
    Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-

    Agony!
    Far more painful than yours,
    When you know she would go with you
    If there only were doors.

    [BOTH]
    Agony!
    Oh, the torture they teach!

    [RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE]
    What's as intriguing-

    [CINDERELLA'S PRINCE]
    Or half so fatiguing-

    [BOTH]
    As what's out of reach?

    [CINDERELLA'S PRINCE]
    Am I not sensitive,
    Clever,
    Well-mannered,
    Considerate,
    Passionate,
    Charming,
    As kind as I'm handsome
    And heir to a throne?

    [RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE]
    You are everything maidens could wish for!

    [CINDERELLA'S PRINCE]
    Then why no-?

    [RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE]
    Do I know?

    [CINDERELLA'S PRINCE]
    The girl must be mad!

    [RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE]
    You know nothing of madness
    Till you're climbing her hair
    And you see her up there
    AS you're nearing her,
    All the while hearing her:
    Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-

    [BOTH]
    Agony!

    [CINDERELLA'S PRINCE]
    Misery!

    [RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE]
    Woe!

    [BOTH]
    Though it's different for each.

    [CINDERELLA'S PRINCE]
    Always ten steps behind-

    [RAPUNZEL'S PRINCE]
    Always ten feet below-

    [BOTH]
    And she's just out of reach.
    Agony
    That can cut like a knife!

    I must have her to wife.
