"Grown-ups working like a dog. Children fawning like a cat. Grown-ups having money. Children having love."

"Sing in my own Way" (or "Korekuraide Utau") is an (original) animated music video, animated by Kousuke Sugimoto and with lyrics by "Handsome" Kenya Tanabe. This is, by far, Sugimoto's best work, and sets the standard by which I quantify "perfection" in AMVs.

Now before I attempt to justify my rating to naysayers of perfect scores in short animations like this, I have to ask, "what makes a successful AMV?" To me, a good AMV is one that manages to convey a message - a combination of beautiful animation and music read more

So, it's basically seems to be a story about a somewhat nerdy guy who looks like he's recording a song, he meets a girl and immediately falls for her it seems. It's a very silly, but happy video to watch.

Most of us sometimes think of what would've been if one had done something, however, overwhelmed with the amount of possibilities we eventually give up on thinking about it.

Story - 9/10

As it is not written in Anime description, Korekuraide Utau ("Singing my own way") show us what could be an answer to the question I mentioned earlier. It's really original trick - read more

Anime: Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei
Korekuraide Utau and Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei are both anime with an unique animation style about how every choice we make affects us somehow. Korekuraide Utau is way shorter though, being only a music video.
