I still only have the faintest idea what this anime is about, but this is still just gorgeous. There's such a quiet sense of things lost, which is really enhanced by all the awesome silhouettes you made. It's just so pretty!

That was GREAT. I love how you turned everyone into shadows of themselves, it totally worked with the show itself. And the way the shadows fell away at the end, it was perfect.

You used the music so beautifully! What a great build, and lovely attention to the breaths/rests. Nice work! It's very powerful.

I HAVE CRIED FULL ON TEARS TWICE TODAY WATCHING THIS VID. I WANT YOU TO KNOW.

Your layering of scenes and imagery is not just gorgeous but meaningful. The part around 1:38 and "but I lost your war" is such a gut punch with that candle going out. And the arches around 2:50 have a similar effect on me.

I love that you highlight all the various relationships/dueling pairs and mirror them against Utena and Anthy. So many damaged people trying to undamage each other.

And I'm so, so glad that you chose to end on Anthy's exit from Ohtori rather than Utena's defeat in the dueling arena. Too many vids for this show end on that bleak note and seem to miss the point. Anthy's triumph is right there for the taking.

What a fantastic description too. "I can't save you, but I can try." Such a microcosm of this show.

In conclusion, I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT UTENA AND I AM CLUTCHING THIS VID CLOSE TO MY HEART FOR THE REST OF TIME. THANK YOU FOR IT. ♥♥♥

*CLINGS* Believe me, I am one of the Utena Feels Club founding members. :D

Seriously though, this is one of the few vids/AMVs I've run across that really captures the emotional punch of the series and redelivers it in a meaningful way. And I've watched a lot a lot of Utena vids.

P.S. You have so many pretty Gargoyles icons! ♥

Wow, that was beautiful and unsettling. It's been over ten years since I watched this show, but this brings it back. Ack, now I want to rewatch.

Wow, this is gorgeous. I love how you shifted the pov as we went through to highlight how Utena wants to save everyone, but everyone else is still trying to be heroic and helpful in similar (kind of fucked up, not necessarily functional) ways. I don't have the right technical words to talk about the visuals, but all of the things you did with the silhouettes and arches were stunning.

God this vid.

"and our kingdom is gone" THIS IS BRUTAL AND UPSETTING

"break my shackles to set me free" with Anthy stabbing Utena and then leaning down with her as she falls, and the lead up to that from 2:59ish GOD.

And then the ending with Anthy saving herself?? Utena's "i can try" did mean something.

I also like how there was a focus on the Utena/Anthy situation, but we got to see everyone else's private battles (internal and external).

Also the "special effects" were so well utilised? Like they were not just there to be pretty (tho they were), they were integrated into the vid as a whole.

Really fantastic.
