This is something I’ve been planning to do for a while, and now, with KanColle ended and reviewed, I reckon it’s a good time to.
One of the first things that came to mind when KanColle started was “Someone needs to do an AMV with Dido’s White Flag.” It’s a pretty obvious thought to reach, and I’m sure others had the same one about Arpeggio: Ars Nova. I’m less a fan of that series, as all I can see is what they cut from the manga, which I much prefer.
Mentioning this is the Ani-TAY skype chat, a short discussion lead to “I wonder how it works with just the OP, cold..?”
“How about the Arpeggio OP?”
“This is getting kinda creepy, to be honest.”
Further discussion of this led to the suggestion of “But what if the OP tracks for Arpeggio and KanColle were swapped, how would that work?”
Surprisingly well, as it turns out...
I want to make clear, no editing or sequencing was done to these. This is purely the radio edit of White Flag set to the OPs for each show, with some extra milliseconds at the end to make the last note more appropriate, and the OP track for each show set to the other OP visuals. That’s it. Also, I used the OP from episode 2 of Arpeggio. Because Takao.
Personally, I’m highly amused by all this.
