Dead Fantasy 2 – Of Fan Videos and Action Choreography

March 25th, 2008

I love stuff like this. It’s a little high on the Final Fantasy fanwankery side, but this is the kind of action and choreography that I grew up loving. It’s so sad to see how people hold up the number of frames used to animate blowing wind, or falling snow and call that dynamic animation. Strait Jacket is a perfect example… very well animated, but because the actual action in this action show is totally lifeless, what’s the point? Slow motion and spinning cameras seem to be the big thing these days. I swear… Advent Children just about made me ill with its flailing camera work. Watch the camera work on this one… rarely jumps or shifts perspectives entirely, letting you actually follow the action instead of trying to overwhelm you. I miss just watching Jackie Chan flail around like the awesome little midget that he is. Anyway, I’ll keep this brief because it’s time you should be spending watching the above. Even fanwankery aside, it’s pretty damn awesome. Obviously, check out the prequel as well. Also, I still find it hilarious that Hitomi (voiced by Horie Yui, don’t forget) is the counter to Tifa.

    I was waiting for this one for a long time.

    AND IT WAS FUCKING FANTASTIC.

  • Kuromaru says:

    Well it seems like PS2 versus XBOX to me… and it was totally one-sided. Fantastic video, though. Where did DOA characters get some superpowers anyway?

  • Aroduc says:

    Probably the same place Rinoa got her god-mode.

  • RmX says:

    Rinoa needs a nerf next episode.

    Or an equal. Yeah that’ll work. More fighting that way.

  • Deranged says:
