  • Comments: This is a video I made for Anime Iowa 2012's Iron Editor contest. Other than a few minor tweaks I made afterwards, everything you see here was made over the course of four hours. This was my first Iron Editor contest ever, so I was pretty nervous going into it. But when I was given the Double Rainbow song, I knew what I had to do. There is only one anime character that can properly convey the Double Rainbow Guy's love of rainbows: Pedro from Excel Saga.

    So, putting this video together was pretty straightforward, except for one major problem: I needed a rainbow. I spent about 45 minutes searching through all the Excel Saga footage I had loaded up on my laptop, to no avail. There was one scene of Menchi swimming with a rainbow overhead, but that was the only clip I could find. I knew I needed more.

    I expanded the scope of my search to more than just Excel Saga, and I lucked out. Beating Angel Dokuro-chan had a scene with not just one, but TWO RAINBOWS! AT THE SAME TIME! It took every bit of self restraint I could muster to not freak out like the Double Rainbow Guy right then and there.

    With that final piece in place, I put the video together and turned it in. The next day, I found out that it won the Iron Editor Contest!

    Anyways, enough of my rambling. Who's still reading this, anyway? You've probably already clicked the download link and closed this window. I mean, I can't blame you! I'd be super stoked to watch this video too!
