PAUSE THE VIDEO: WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS! THIS AMV COVERS A LOT OF THE MOVIE FROM START TO END. DO NOT WATCH IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED.
You can also watch this at youtube for now as well. Please comment there too !
Arashi no Yoru Ni, the first of many children books authored by Yuichi Kimura, is also the title to this movie adaptation of the seven books that Kimura created. It is about a wolf and a goat the meet one stormy night in an abandoned cabin, and, though blind of each other's appearance, and unable to pick up scent because of being stuffy from the rain, they create a friendship that can not be broken by not even nature itself.
Arashi no Yoru Ni can not only be found in it's original state online somewhere (dubbed or not), but also has had an English audio makeover, with the StormyNightRedubTeam making an AC3 file to be downloaded and used for your original copy. You may either re-author your DVD copy of the movie with a program with this english sound file, or you can watch it on Youtube right here!
Either way, this movie is very awesome and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who has not watched it yet, especially before you watch this AMV.
Thanks, and I hope you enjoy!
I do not own the music nor the animation.

Time taken to create this AMV: About a week, for about 1 or 2 hours on and off per day. Fixed the quality with a better resolution copy of the video material on the last day (August 8th).
I know that this video attempts a bit of lip syncing, and it may not be popular with some people, but others like it. I tried to mix with no lip syncing at certain parts as well.
The story is meant to be told from the perspective of either character at certain parts of the video. It's mostly for Mei obviously at the beginning, and then it goes into Gabu's perspective for a good part, and the rest is up to your imagination. For the most part, the lyric "So were you" is mostly reminiscent of Mei trying to "save" his "own skin" by doing what the elder and clan wanted him to do, but so was Gabu: he was intending to keep saving Mei's life as long as he could the whole time. It's not entirely the exact concept of Mei's thoughts though, it's just a cute little ending I think and it fits decently enough.
Thanks for any constructive criticism you can offer, but please tell me also what I did that was good, or right, so I can do that for future videos!
NOTE: I have not done an AMV for a while now. It's a small hobby, and I only do it once in a while for games and movies I really really like. I'm not entirely experienced with Sony Vegas yet, and this was my first crack at using the program.
