Ever wonder what New Trials would have been like if it were a movie? Credits go to Director Kirei Blossom (maybe the next Tomoyo!)

Links not Related to New Trials and Card Captor Sakura…
My very first amv—from the wonderful anime Full Moon wo Sagashite, with the beautiful song by Richard Marx and Donna Lewis from the animation Anastasia (one of my favorite non-Japanese animations. The other is obviously Beauty and the Beast. Lol… Considering I once wrote a fanfic called Beauty and the Wolf.) I made this years ago, when there were barely any Full Moon AMV (animated music video) out there. Lots of people posted this up on Youtube—the one w/ the most viewers and comments got deleted for some reason, but I guess there are several other people who posted it up. I don’t think I even have the original copy myself because my computer crashed. Sigh… If anything, this is sort of New Trials related, just because “At the Beginning” sort of what captures the essence of New Trials—if I can give Sakura a theme song, I would give her this song. And Richard Marx has an oh-so sexy voice. Listen to his version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You.” The most romantic song ever.
AMV of one of my newer favorites, the anime Honey & Clover, which is a slice-of-life anime about five art school students… It’s an anime that just touches your heart. Also, it helps if you’re in college and you’re going through what the characters are going through. Anyway, the song “The Rose” originally written by Amanda McBroom and sung by Bette Midler has one of the most touching lyrics ever. It literally explores every aspect of love that is possible… Another reoccurring theme in New Trials. ^^ This version of “The Rose” is with Westlife.
C’mon—admit it you love this song. A Westlife remake of the Bonnie Tyler classic. Anyway, another AMV I made of Honey & Clover—there really weren’t enough AMV’s back then to do justice to this great anime. (Okay, sorry… I guess I was ‘busy’ but I was also doing other things than writing the next NT chapters—it requires less brainwork to create AMV’s—though it’s equally as frustrating cutting the clips and getting the time right and having Movie Maker crash all the time.)
Well… That’s my other closet hobby—I rarely finish an AMV because it takes too much computer memory, it’s hard to get the clips and well… my computer sort of freezes. I had a New Trials/CCS one of fanarts and CCS clips that crashed along with my laptop. I’ve decided to stick with writing, but AMVs are definitely fun to make. Was never inspired to make a CCS AMV because there are just too many out there. I would some day like to make a “New Trials” anime opening w/ Utada Hikaru’s “Sakura Drops” and the ending with Maaya Sakamoto’s “Strobe no Sora.”
