as a deep fan of dream theater and a somewhat otaku, i found this anime music video the perfect bridge of connection between these two worlds. surely, i do believe that this music video will no be appreciated by just anyone, but keep this in mind, i also believe that you don’t have to be a progressive metal headbanger to know how to perceive that “forsaken” is a master piece (yet another one) created by gonzo. the lyrics, written by john petrucci, tells us the story of a somewhat distant love that we are condemned to lose once we attained it. gonzo then makes
us believe that a 5 minute love story is a one worth living for (although you already know the score – you ought to suffer). this is likely an animation you aren’t familiar with, being gonzo, but, in this americanized musical environment, it works majestically. so, give it a shot, especially if you’re a DT aficionado, and let the wonders of japanese animation fly you throughout the world and let yourself live a lifetime in just 5 minutes, because you’ve got no time to spare. remember, this is not a happy ending!
