Comments:
First off. This AMV should not work. Nor should this vid be as effective as it is. The creator strips away all the color so all the anime clips are presented in black and white tones which sounds like it should be a cheap trick. However, it works really well. Also the vid mirrors the in and out fades originally used in the music video (for the movie "Dangerous Minds") and that subconciously helps to wrap your brain around the concept. It's impressively well done and the scenes choose fit with the lyrics helping to reinfornce the point of the song. Not the best song to represent the anime, in my opinion, but it's nice to see a dramatic/serious AMV that's not set to Linkin Park. Straw Hats off to this one.
