We all know what the world needs is more Love Hina Christmas videos and I'm more than happy to oblige. :P

To be honest I really don't have a lot to say about this one. I've never made such a heavily lyric-synched video before. In a weird way it felt like the song did a lot for the thinking for me. But over time, the concept just amused me more and more as I found out how much I could get away with.

I guess it's worth noting that with this video I "graduated" out of WMM and I LOOOOOVE Mudkips having new new powers at my disposal...like non-linear editing.

The moral of the story? Keep believing, love finds you when you least expect it, and always always ALWAYS apply TFM to your Love Hina footage before editing.
