This was my entry for Otohiko’s group in the CDVV Iron Chef competition. After hearing the various songs, this was the one that stuck in my head, and I was thinking of Space as a possible theme. 

Thinking about the idea for a while, I remembered the Saturn V launch from Battle Athletes and came up with the idea of incorporating NASA archive footage as a contrast, paired up with scenes from anime that were inspired by the shot, and I was actually surprised at how well it worked. Finding the lunar surface shots from Rocket Girls was a lucky thing, I’ll admit, as I hadn’t watched the series yet. 

I’m not entirely happy with the “future” segment, since that was the last one I did and was running out of time to submit, but it still works fairly well.
