The category for this video, Shin Hatsubai #30, really ought to be "goresplatter" or "vomit-inducing" rather than "horror"; a deliberate eye towards mutilation, blood, and sickness dominates this video in scenes of death. After I got dissatisfied with the digisub copy I originally had of this, I ordered the dub -- yes, dub hentai via special-order, the three things I really try to avoid -- because every metal fiber in my body fucking DEMANDS that this video be made, to set the mark of extreme musical and visual brutality for all time. The show is a great OAV series with lots of stuff right outta Lovecraft, and the dismemberment goes really well with one of my all-time favorite Hypocrisy songs. The riff in here must stand like 10 feet tall at full height -- listen and you'll know instantly which I mean.
I tried to make this video once before, but there was all kinds of pixellation in my DivX sub rips, so I decided to get the full-quality official version (dub cause I didn't have a DVD player at the time, and nobody makes subs of hentai this extreme). This was assembled in less than two chronological days right after coming back from winter break, and even if it's not up to standard on synch and plotting, it's definitely one of the sickest AMVs ever made.
This video is back online via an indirect link on mediafire, which is less sketchy and more stable than its previous location. There are some more notes on the process that went into this video here.
Shin Hats Self-Grade: B-/C+. This is not a great video, or even one most people will want to watch more than once. However, I had to get it out of my system, and the complete absence of 'story' was a welcome breather coming between two extreme efforts on pure drama videos. The hits are good, just incredibly disgusting.
