Well, that was a bizarre piece of stop motion video. Of course, I do like Sledgehammer, and have been known to like bizarre vidoes; Fishheads, anyone?

Today, I’m going to go somewhat back to anime, but not opening or closing themes. You may recall me playing the Neon Genesis Evangelion opening theme a few days ago. This is an AMV that amounts to a character sketch of one of its characters. Appropriately, it is named Damaged Rei-mix:

Damaged Rei-mix – Koopiskeva

This is set to the song Damaged (808 Remix), by Plummet. The fractured nature of the video and the song fit very well with the character Rei, who is a very fractured person. When you meet her, she is shy, and withdrawn. She often appears cold and emotionless, and seldom speaks. Her character develops through the series, becoming more human, and there are indications of why she is the way she is. (What number Rei are we on by the end of the series?)

I felt this video captured her personality well, and was a particularly good one, in any case, which is why I decided to share it…
