This video, Shin Hatsubai vid #24, was done to fill the #6 slot in the BAS 2002 spring demo video, after I decided that doing two features of In Flames was too much, and the version of "Pinball Map" I did with Akira was a little too hardcore for the average Bowdoiner. The idea became to do a vid featuring new stuff: anime released in the last year that nobody had brought over yet for whatever reason. Source is from The Boy Who Saw The Wind, Magical Nyan Nyan Taruto, Tales of Eternia, Shaman King, Neo Snow White Legend Pretear, Hunter X Hunter, Hikaru no Go, and about 6 seconds of Gasaraki for the intro (the only show used commercially available here). Source was a little tight but I think I made it work ok.
This video was seat-of-the-pantsed like every other demo made over the first year of SH's operation, but is the only one not to have a script, prefering to let the anime speak for itself. The introduction is very good, but the ending is a little lackluster.
Shin Hats Self-Grade: B+.
Stats: #clips: 53. avg length: 4.36 sec. total time: 73 hours.
There are also some other notes about the production of the video and demo 2 as a whole here.
This video is now on local, despite being only tenuously an AMV. This is by request; someone asked for demo 3 to go on local, and there wasn't a convincing reason not to give demos 1 and 2 the same treatment.
