I owe the inspiration for this video to my younger brother, who suggested it after I showed him the OVA set in early July 2001. I was still stuck on my Bubblegum Crisis video at that point, so this idea kicked around in my head for a few weeks before I started going through the video looking for scenes to use in mid-July after I finished the BGC video. This video came together quickly, helped by the fact that I had far more ideas for this one, and kept a better record of them. This video was my second entry at Nekocon FLASH, but was cut because of time constraints.

My first full-length video, I started this one in late June 2001, but ran out of ideas before doing the instrumental sections, so it sat around until mid-July before it got finished in a burst of inspiration. Alphaville's been a band I've liked for a long time, since I was in seventh grade and heard their Forever Young at one of my summer camp's dances. I later found out that Forever Young was one of a group of songs called The CTY Cannon, played during every dance at all of the sites the summer camp was at. After my last year at the camp, I picked up Alphaville's self-titled CD in a fit of nostalgia, and got hooked on Big in Japan. After watching BGC2032, I got the idea of focusing on the "fame" of Priss, Vision, and the Knight Sabers for this video.

Completed March 2001

My first video, done just after Katsucon 7, where I parodied the opening to Gensoumaden Saiyuki using Magic Knight Rayearth. I thought that the irony of such a bishonen series's opening using an almost-magical girl series would be funny. It works well for a first video, I think, but has a lot of little problems like frame holds that didn't work.
