  • Comments: I love the anime Photon. Ever since I picked it up on a complete whim one day at Suncoast and popped it in my DVD player, I was in love (well, technically, not until I had watched it). This tiny 6-episode OVA has a lot of variation in genre. It's primarily science fiction, but with a little humor, drama, romance, action... a little bit of everything. I wanted to make a video that conveyed every aspect of this anime, so I pieced together bits of five different songs.

    The Hamster Dance works for Photon... really it does, especially if you use Pochi. Lots and lots of Pochi. Cheerleading Pochi.
    The transition from The Hamster Dance to The Kinslayer worked beautifully. The two songs are in virtually the same key, except the latter is minor. Being suddenly thrust into The Kinslayer from The Hamster Dance in the way I've done it has been described by my friend as "disturbing."
    In The Kinslayer section... as much as I love Papacha, once I have the Galactic Emperor come in, I avoid putting Papacha in anymore. He's just a villain you can't take seriously... well, except for five minutes in the last episode, just before the Galactic Emperor appears and makes Papacha seem about as mean as a muppet ^.^

    I used a lot of digital effects in this, but only in the Kinslayer section. The song is very powerful and I used digital effects to emphasize tiny clips as they play to the song.

    WARNING: There is brief nudity in this video. However, I'm safe, since none of it is sexual nudity. Let's see... there's Keyne washing her hair, fighting Photon, and in her glass capsule. I used these clips either because they were fun, they fit the lyrics, or because they were important to the plot.


    [No lyrics here really.]

    "Facing this unbearable fear like meeting an old friend"
    "Time to die, poor mates, You made me what I am!"
    "In this world of a million religions everyone prays the same way"
    "Your praying is in vain It`ll all be over soon"
    "Father help me, save me a place by your side!"
    "There is no god Our creed is but for ourselves"
    "Not a hero unless you die Our species eat the wounded ones"
    "Drunk with the blood of your victims
    I do feel your pity-wanting pain,
    Lust for fame, a deadly game"
    "Run away with your impeccable kin!"
    "- Good wombs hath borne bad sons..."
    Cursing, God, why?
    Falling for every lie
    Survivors` guilt
    In us forevermore
    15 candles
    Redeemers of this world
    Dwell in hypocrisy:
    "How were we supposed to know?"

    It's cold outside. There's no kind of atmosphere
    I'm all alone, more or less
    Let me fly far away from here
    Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun
    I want to lie shipwrecked and comatose
    Drinking fresh mango juice
    Goldfish shoals nibbling on my toes
    Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun
    Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun

    I thought that they were angels, but much to my surprise
    They climbed aboard their starship and headed for the skies
    Singing come sail away, come sail away
    Come sail away with me
    Come sail away, come sail away
    Come sail away with me (etc.)

    Just like the patterns in the big sky
    We'll be together till the end is nigh
    Don't know the answer or the reason why
    We'll stick together till the day we die
    If I had to do this all a second time
    I won't complain or make a fuss
    When the angels sing that that unlikely blend
    Are those two funny friends
    That's us
