A refreshingly simple video to make, Shin Hatsubai vid #18 wrapped in a tiny fraction of the time in both chronological days and work hours that it took to make The God Damned Noir Vid From Hell (#17). The end could have been handled a little better, but all in all it is a cool, fun, biker video with a lot of good hits as usual. My favorite part in this is where Eguchi and the dude who leads the Hustle Jets weave up and back for the lead towards the end; it looks just so killer on full-quality.
Shin Hats Self-Grade: A-. Most of the video absolutely rocks, but I didn't put a lot of time into the ending. If I wasn't distracted by the possibility of war (this video was completed on 14 September 2001) and looking ahead to a weekend of work, anime, and rendering for the next vid, I might have cared enough to do some cuts and get something better together, but it's fine as is.

This video was entered for competition at Nan Desu Kan '02, replacing video #11 for reasons better explained in that video's description entry. It also got sent to TommyRude's '80s-music contest in early 2003. There are some additional musings about the video offsite here.
