Mega Version is Ready for DL
The long-awaited sequel to Project May Episode One is finally out. Sorry for the long wait, everyone!
As usual, all I have done is simply arrange everything together.
After watching the video for the first time myself I have noticed some minor bloopers, as easy as they would be to fix, I feel it would just be so “arrogant” to make everything look so perfect, and I’m just an ordinary eringe ~( ‘ w ‘ )~ I make mistakes like every one else and hence why I decline to fix them.
But first, here’s the download link
Did you nerf anything?
So, what to talk about the video without too much spoilers? Well I can tell you about the things I did want to be in the video but declined in the end.
First of all I wanted to add a scrolling news ticker. To its credit it would have had been ripe for some jokes. There were three kinds of content I planned it to have
- News Flashes: these would be ripe for jokes, with entries like “Probes sent to Uranus”, “Outstanding Dentist recieves Plaque”, basically news about the world at large and it gives a touch of versimilitude about the broadcast.
- Technical Difficulties: like in Happy School, these would be messages apologizing about the stuff being hijacked into the TV before they themselves get hijacked and spout nonsense or humorous things to say
- News Flashes about the Broadcast Hijacking: like the regular news flashes but also talk about the effects of the broadcastjacking happening around town and the rest of the world, hinting that yeah, it’s happening everywhere and to everyone.
But as interesting as these pieces of scrolling text would be, and all their potential for jokes, I did have some hurdles that justified nerfing them. Now while I plan that only some of the channels would have the tickers, it was kinda meaningless and would look simply arbitrary to decide what channel gets what kind of news ticker. Did they just switch to a channel about news 24/7? or a channel about music videos 24/7? that means sticking more and more watermarks on the screen, except it wouldn’t make sense since it was established in the first episode that when the Pokemon X video would be streamed in, it would complete replace watermarks.
Superimposing the watermarks over some arbitrary logo I put in there would just make the video look messier than it would be.
Also, do you need to read a joke about probes in Uranus while May’s balls get squeezed really hard? This isn’t like say, Sakura’s Technololi Debut video where her vital statistics are being streamed lived because it’s supposed to be a show where you vote for your favorite idol. As far as the lore in Project May goes, they’re just watching a porno.
So, tickers were nerfed because in the end I felt they really didn’t contribute that much to the video. I mean sure it can have disturbing implications that the whole world is seeing it, but do you really need to inflate the video with some half-assed jokes and potentially ruin any mood I was trying to build into it?
And that explains why I didn’t put it there.
Another thing I nerfed was a “previously” section which would give a short recap. This however is a practice that only makes sense for actual TV shows (i.e. back in the era where obtaining copies of the episode where difficult to find or expensive to do). But in this case, the only way you’d know about this is if you’ve heard of Project May Episode 1, which means you’d be getting it anyway and you’ want to watch it first.
It wasn’t like anyone complained in Happy School Episode 2 that I simply continued from where I left off, anyway.
I’ve watched the video now, you can tell me a few more things?
Okay, but of course I’m not going to spoil it since we do have other viewers here who haven’t.
As mentioned previously Episode 1 is setting the scenes while Episode 2 is pretty much the start of the fun with the finale being pretty much the hentai and sex scenes you can expect.
My take on episode 2 was do away with the linear method of showing choreographies from start to finish and instead, present only the choice cuts then duct tape everything together where the movements coincide with each other for some, and use intermediary scenes for others.
So to answer the question if I edited any of the dance motions, I did not, I simply cut from one choreography to another.
Now this isn’t like Happy School where it was cut up into two episodes because it would have been an hour long video or something, the only footage I’ve cut out from this project are the uninteresting takes. Which means for Episode 3, I’m going to have to bake those footage from scratch, which is a good thing because I’m getting sick of looking at that stage now.
So what Project Will You Work on next?
Haven’t decided yet to be honest. I’ll continue my current course of working on the outstanding ones, and whenever I hit a roadblock I just move onto the next. There’s Project Hinata, Project Jackie, Project Rin, some unfinished Airin Videos, and potential remakes.
I’m thinking Remakes would be a good idea, they’re simple to do and just need some minor tweaking. Plus, a little artificial bulking up on content isn’t always a bad thing.
