    This video is very speical to me, it represents all the feelings I felt while watching the Kenshin OVA's.

    It's a *very* emotional video to me and I hope others that view it will like it as well.

    It uses a very slow flowing song, which matches the mood I wanted to set perfectly.

    It's focus is on Karou and Kenshin, while maintaining a beautiful story.

    I cried my eyes out when I saw this OVA it was done so well....and it was an ending I never had suspected..... this is my tribute to Kenshin and all the series/OVA's stood for.

    Dispite the number of Kenshin videos out there...I wanted to find a way to set mine apart from the others.. it's speical to me.

    I do a lot of drama work and most people know me for my work in that section. Inspiration is a wonderful thing and should be used when it comes.

    That happend a lot with this video. I had to be in a depressed or saddened mood to work on this video.

    I often had to take a few days, sometimes a week, away from working on this video waiting for the inspiration to hit me again, then it all just came out.

    Like with Eden, a lot of myself and my personal feelings, which I shut out from the world, are expressed in this video.

    Personally this video is held on the same level as Eden to me, and that means a lot.

    I cried a few times while creating this video, and I'm not afriad to admit that.

    I know that others that view this video may/may not have the same impact on them, but I hope you can at least you enjoy it for what it is ^^

    If you are looking for action you will not find it here, this is a emotionly moving piece, that came directly from my heart.

    The thing about this video is that with ever part of this video flows, sometimes it's the body movements of the characters others it's images in the back ground. The part where you see Kenshin killing Tomoe, there is blood falling from the screen. That part of the video flows with the song. It's so hard to think of ways to desciribe this video then I feel it's a work of pure art...I hope you can at least get something out of it. I like to make my viewers *feel* the emotion from the video, I want them to be able to know the feels of the characters, almost as if interact with them. This is what i do when creating my works. I pour a lot of my personal feelings in the AMV's. And having someone else understand them for what they are, means the world to me ^^

    I hope you enjoy it ^^

    This video does contain major spoilers, so please be aware.

    This video is also based on the lyrics, and Enya is a bit hard to understand so here are the lyrics to the song:

    May it be an evening star
    Shines down upon you
    May it be when darkness falls
    Your heart will be true
    You walk a lonely road
    Oh! How far you are from home

    Mornie utķliŽ (darkness has come)
    Believe and you will find your way
    Mornie alantiŽ (darkness has fallen)
    A promise lies within you now

    May it be the shadows call
    Will fly away
    May it be your journey on
    To light the day
    When the night is overcome
    You may rise to find the sun

    Mornie utķliŽ (darkness has come)
    Believe and you will find your way
    Mornie alantiŽ (darkness has fallen)
    A promise lies within you now

    A promise lies within you now
