I got introduced to this movie by a GIF on Twitter talking about the animation and how it had inspired the look of Samurai Jack. After watching it, I decided that I needed to make an AMV using it, because it fit my wheelhouse of “obscure old-school source” so well.

After hunting for a useful song for quite a while, I ended up falling back on my old standby of “epic theatrical music” for this one. I originally intended to use several of the fight scenes from across the movie, but I couldn’t get the narrative to flow very well, so I cut the idea back to only using the epic final battle sequence against the eight-headed dragon.

It came across all right, but I’d like to revisit the movie again someday and use more of the really cool animation sequences, especially the fire demon fight.
