Seriously, call Kenny Loggins because you're in the Danger Zone.

Audio/Visual: Visually I thought it was good. It appears that you decided to stick very close to the original source material and not try to change it with color grading or corrections.

You also kept it in its original resolution instead of zooming in and to make it wide screen. I believe these choices allowed it to have a very retro feel. Your choice of transitions and effects were fairly basic as well. Cross fades, fade to blacks/whites, and simple cuts. Not a bad choice, and further gave it a more retro feel which I feel matched the feel and mood of the song.

Synchronization: The sync was pretty solid from start to finish. The song started fairly upbeat and you matched it with nice training scenes, which reminded me of something you would see in an 80s music video. When the song slowed down you accordingly matched it with slower scenes and atmospheric scenes, like at 1:55 – 2:07.

The only part that bothered me a bit, and took me out of the video, was 1:14 to 1:22. I thought the cuts there were too quick and you could have lingered a little bit longer on each scene to give the viewer a chance to understand what their seeing.

I did really like how you synced the visuals with the beat of the song at 2:28 – 2:35. Very nice use of scenes.

Story/Theme: If you were going to a fairly retro and 80s feel I believe you succeeded, because that’s how I perceived it. I haven’t seen this anime so I can’t comment on whether you diverged from the original story a lot or not. The theme seemed fairly generic: face your trails and overcome them.

Overall, an enjoyable watch.

This was excellent. Straight out of my childhood and directly into my permanent collection. Makes me want to remaster my own Danger Zone video, assuming it's possible to find an HD version of Airbats. Is this a BD release of Gunbuster?

Enjoyable from beginning to end. This looked great, the editing was great, just a top-notch action video that delivers the goods.
