Alien 9 + Tori Amos = "Now THAT is an AMV!"
- (If this Anime Music Video has been mentioned here
previously, don't blame it on my lack of attention.
Blame it on the boogie.)
Alrighty, I'm gonna pipe up and mention soemthing that
downright DESERVES your attention... but that doesn't
mean I'm deLurking. I don't lurk. I merely keep my
mouth shut unless I have something worth saying. No
point saying 'Agel Wings' is the most sickeningly cutesy
Lillilicious comic ever. It's Satating the obvious,
But I digress. And it was darn good. Definitely worth
those precious seconds of your life spent reading it.
Not mine, though. I got better things to do.
...like recommend a simply fantastic AMV. You WILL
like it. If you don't, you have no taste, and I hate
"Fragile and Frail"
ANIME: Alien 9
ARTIST: Tori Amos
SONG: "These Precious Things"
Wow, how's that for one helluva recipe for success?
I've been worshipping Tori Amos since I was a smart-
mouthed randy teen, and "These Precious Things" is one
of my most beloved songs. Sounds simply amazing when
And Alien 9? Well, watching it was one disturbing
experience, which was only compounded after reading
Kat's thesis on the series. Granted, key parts have
since been debunked (gee, what a funny/dirty word),
but I liked Kat's view on Alien 9 far more than the
author's. Remember, Kat: Your facts may not always
be right, but your opinions always are!
Of course, I mostly mean the theory on the OVA's ending.
Kat's theory is far better than the author's continuation.
Know the ending I'm talking about? If you don't, I
don't care about spoiling it for you, because it means
you're not an Alien 9 fan, and I hate you with the fury
of a nova. I'd spoil life for you if I could.
ALIEN 9 ENDING (Kat's): Very sad/tragic, but subject
to so much in-depth examination of the multi-layers of
the characters/story, that it's just beautiful. By
giving Kat's essay to someone who's just seen Alien 9
and they "just wanna hit Yuri in da face SO much!" , I
get an almost instant conversion to "Oh God... oh god
I need to hold her. The things I've said... it hurts.
It hurts in my heart."
ALIEN 9 ENDING (author's): Yuri get's felt up on the train
home from school, and then told it was her fault. Cue
I hate Hitoshi Tomizawa so much. Every volume contains
promise after promise of brilliance, only to be cut off
with anticlimax EVERY DAMN TIME. Not that it ever
stopped me from reading every Alien 9 volume. Me
reading Alien 9 is the same as God watching us. The
more we see, the more we hate, the more we wish we
never started the damn thing... but we just have to see
what happens next!
Yup, I think all of the above needed to be said. The
internet, if nothing else, is the perfect place to talk
about who you hate and why. However, The important
bit was the weblink to the AMV. If you haven't
downloaded it yet, do it now.
