This is by far the hardest video I have completed. It was so time-consuming and stressful that I actually stopped working on it for a good 3-4 month period, focusing instead on Akito Hayama, Skater Boy and other non-"Dream" activities. I later returned to work on it with more RAM, Premiere experience, and patience to finally get the last few segments that had eluded me. Much of the work of this video was done frame-by-frame...that is, finding the average rate a still was moving in the original Kare Kano opening and trying best to move the pictures manually in each individually-created shot. Needless to say, I'm not looking to try this again any time soon :)
This video essentially is the Kare Kano Opening with Ah! My Goddess footage. I'm a huge fan of Ah! My Goddess (slightly more so than Kare Kano), but I've always felt that AMG deserves an opening of the caliber of Kare Kano. I played around with various images, scans, and captures in an attempt to re-create the Kare Kano opening with AMG footage...and eventually it did turn out all right. Some footage, such as that from the OVA, was a bit disappointing quality-wise since AnimEigo did a pretty bad job transferring it onto R1 DVD. But, it's what I had to work with, and even so I am still very satisfied.
This video is best enjoyed by a Kare Kano or AMG fan (ideally a fan of both), and I plan on eventually releasing a "credits" / "subtitled" version to make it even more Opening-like :)
