It may just be a music video to anyone oblivious to Another. But, as a fan or the show, i really came to appreciate this little added gem. It conveys the very intimate plight of Mei through a beautiful composition of lyrics that represent the progression of the real show's plot through her POV.
The art, sound and character design perfectly reflects elements of the show, and despite it being only 4 minutes long: it does further extend your understanding of Mei, on a personal note.
In music-specialized terms... The song is very emotive, soft... Her voice is like silk - and the whole production feels
very heartfelt. In terms of genre?
Japanese: Easy Listening, Balad, Romance.

I really liked the relaxing video and enjoyed the sad, heart touching music as memories of the anime unfolded as still frames in my mind, prompted by the changing of backgrounds and clothes of Misaki.
I did enjoy the video, and it was entertaining, very heart touching, but a little slow.
I'll start with the art because I gave it the lowest score.
The art style was very adorable, and drew Misaki Mei is a much cuter light than her normally serious self but was not anything special or impressive.
I really liked how the story of the video progressed in the same was as the anime. The
clothes that Misaki Mei wore were related to how the episodes passed in the anime. I thought it was a clever way of playing the song lyrics to the changing of the character Misaki Mei.
The music itself was very smooth and relaxing, which is a nice change from the high intensity of the anime. The lyrics on the other hand were very sad and seemed so lonely. The final lyrics were very heart warming especially because they were paired with the final scene from the anime where Misaki and Sakakibara walk down the hill together.
I really like how the video followed the character of Misaki Mei, drawing her very cute, and following her as she was in the anime, at least clothes wise.
Duly note that is an AMW and without any doubt is for the fans of Another the main anime but you can also as one, who have not seen Another, still somewhat enjoy this one(to a lesser extent) becacue the music in this is sssssoooo good ^^
It is a really hearthwarming and relaxing video and song which are wellwritten og wellsung. The animation isnt really worth mentioning, it is just some chibipicture of Misaki Mei, but they are still quite cute.
But yeah it is made for the fans ^^ and it is especially good to get reminded of the different scenes in the another
It's a four minute AMV so I'll just keep this brief, and I'm only judging the art, music and the story/character as one.
Story/Character: I do enjoy how this adds more to Misaki's character somewhat, watching this after completing Another, and it doesn't do a canon break (as far as I can see) like a lot of these do. 6.5/10, rounding to a 7.
Sound/Music: I really like how relaxing and calming this song was, and how it did somewhat gel with Misaki and her character, as well as what was on screen at the time. I'm going to give this an 8/10 because I personally really
liked it and think it suited her very well as a character.
Art: The art-style was cute and consistent, but as all chibis are, very simplistic in nature. 6/10 for art.
Overall: I'm going to give this a 6, it may not be a proper average of my scores, but all in all, I believe a 6 is a fair rating. I'd definitely recommend this, it does not exactly add much, but it does not subtract anything, and is a nice, zen song to listen to and just relax to with cute visuals and zone out as you tie it all back to Misaki's character. <3
