video: Maryuu Senki
music: Possessed - "Death Metal"
link: depositfiles [52.8 MB]
editor: Dazzle MovieStar
production date: April 2003

The above picture is from a cut in the video that I'd named, in the production process, as 'goretex'. For fairly obvious reasons -- as shown, the dominant feature of the animation cut is a swirling vortex of gore, hence the portmanteau. And when you get something as ridiculously over-the-top, Dan-Seagrave-cover death metal as this, it tends to stick in your mind even seven and eight years later.

As alluded to on SH071, this is the culmination of a very bizarre sequence of videos. All three, at the time I entered them on the .org, represented the first use of both the anime and the musical artist in the video in the catalog. I don't know of anyone else who has a similar "triple-double"; even to pull this one off, I had to be fast with Colorful, find something interesting to do with the first couple eps of the skullcrushingly boring Piano, actually own a copy of this show, and then use racist music, a politically controversial band from the Ukraine, and then the last relatively-big thrash metal band that any otaku might be expected to pick up. I wasn't striving for it at the time, and it's not worth trying to do going forward; empty as well as nearly impossible, this is sort of an AMV anti-achievement.
