  • Comments: *Apparently Streamload hosting while so far reliable, is not appropriate since AMVs use up my streamload alotted bandwidth very quickly. I have thus relegated the AMV to a different, although also rather bandwidth limited link. Apologies to those who couldn't get it before.

    This endeavor is meant to stand as my somewhat rushed 'unoriginal action AMV' It's got a lot of what other action AMVs have, lots of action (Although not as much as I would've liked in the end, since it would have taken longer to edit than I have time at the moment and because I only had 3 episodes to work with. :D) Plus a rather grungy and angsty rock track. Pretty much the same technical details that applies to my last two projects apply to this one. Done with High Quality fansubs and Windows Movie Maker. Creation time was about 8 hours. This video showcases the anime Noir and mostly gun-fighting action during those sequences set to "But You said I'm Useless" performed by the band Luna Sea's bass-player, "J." His voice has a rather grungy quality and his songs almost always have heavy bass chords in it. So it sounds like an angsty alt. rock song from the recent era even though it was made in 1996 or 1997. :D

    I tried to make it very action-oriented, but I actually only was able to use 3 episodes worth of action scenes, because that's all I have at the moment. So I missed out on a /lot/ of action scenes and action-synching. I know. :/ And I guess I'm just used to adding some element of drama to a video so there's quite a few 'emotional' scenes in there too that I just /had/ to have. :D But basically, I was trying to convey the sense that these two women are so freaking deadly, they kill just about anyone they come in contact with so don't even bother resisting. :> Which, if you just look at the very very basics of the anime is the general story. The song is mostly in Japanese, although the chorus is in English. So while I can't find translations anywhere, here are the lyrics at least, note there's a bit of swearing in the song, and it's not censored:

    ONE TWO THREE FOUR!

    LA LA LA LA LA LOU LA LA
    LA LA LA LA LA LOU LA LA
    LA LA LA LA LA LOU LA LA
    LA LA LA LA LA LOU LA LA LOU!

    ONE TWO THREE FOUR!

    I BELIEVE THE DE-SI-TINY (I BELIEVE THE DE-SI-TINY)
    I BELIEVE THE ETERNITY (I BELIEVE THE ETERNITY)
    I BELIEVE THE DE-SI-TINY (I BELIEVE THE DE-SI-TINY)
    BUT YOU SAID I'M USELESS (BUT YOU SAID I'M USELESS)

    I BELIEVE THE ETERNITY (I BELIEVE THE ETERNITY)
    I BELIEVE THE DE-SI-TINY (I BELIEVE THE DE-SI-TINY)
    BUT YOU SAID I'M USELESS

    I guess the main reason I made this, is because after reviewing so many action-oriented AMVs, I wanted to try to make my own and see how difficult it was to make a truly great action-oriented AMV despite it being overdone and stuff. Because there are some out there that manage to accomplish that and they're some of my personal favorites. :) The second reason was because I wanted to show how badass female anime characters can be. It's started me working on another similar AMV project and what I suppose you can call my 'Girls with Guns' AMV series. Anyways, thanks for reading this lengthy description and please enjoy it! :) And remember, to right-click the link to save the video.
