This was one of three submissions to ConnectiCon XVIII (2021) and one of two submissions to Anime Boston 2020, both in the action category. Sadly neither submission made it to the finals. You can watch it here.
You can thank the podcasters on Blank Check who, during their discussion of this film, speculated on how cool it would be to set this film to Toxic by Britney Spears. I agreed and thus you have the AMV you see before you.
I really like how this AMV came out, but it did underperform in the sense that it never became a finalist. Still I love the combination of the two and I had a great deal of fun making it.
0:14-0:16: I love the cut during the high note to show just how big this Ohmu is. I hope to use that trick more going forward.
1:25 – 1:37: I never really knew what to put here, so I went with the flashbacks from the movie.
1:37 – 1:50: I never really liked this part underneath the forest. It seems long and not a lot happens. The strongest parts of the AMV come after this section.
2:53: I love the tank firing lining up with the music.
3:11-3:12: I needed an extra beep of the Ohmu feet advancing so I had to loop this clip which you can notice if you are paying a lot of attention.
