The best thing to be said about this video is that I really like the concept and the song. It's a watchable AMV, but there's not much to make it stand out or any really dazzling editing to jazz it up a bit. There is one moment (while Eiri is pulling the blanket up over a sleeping Shuuichi) where the video freezes in black and white for a moment that was a cool effect, but the random scene choice sort of takes away from a lot in this AMV. It's not bad, the pacing is often good (lots of faster clips at the right moments, slower clips at others), it's just not special, either. I'm being harsh, because I've seen way, way, way worse and this one is worth linking to. If the creator put a little more time into choosing better scenes, they could make some seriously kickass videos. Also, thumb's up for the song choice, even if the video suffers from confusion about whether Eiri hates who he became after the rape or if he hates who he was before it. Or both, I suppose. (Still. I like it enough to want to keep a link to it.)
