  • If you don't have the x264 and/or XviD codecs, you can get them at the links I provided. (The XviD version should also play back fine with the DivX decoder, version 5 or newer.) If for some reason you still can't get the MP4 to play, or if your machine can't handle the playback and it stutters, get the AVI version instead. If even that doesn't work, then let me know and I'll make an MPEG-1 version, which will play on anything.
  • Do not attempt to play the MP4 in QuickTime Player 7. It won't work.
  • The people at A-M-V.org have written up a great guide to playing back videos, which can be found here.

Unfortunately, Third Impact is one group I can't exhort you all to go out and buy the album of, because they don't have one; however, you CAN buy the single here.

If you've seen Squid Girl, then you get the joke behind the title of this video. If you haven't, then I hope this video convinces you to watch it. It's a fun and cute series, lighthearted and episodic, good for when you just need a laugh and a smile; listen to the lyrics and you'll get a pretty good idea of what the show is all about.

And for those of you who'd rather hear it from me: she's a squid, she's a girl, she comes from under the sea, she's trying to conquer the human race in return for their crimes against the ocean, but she gets stuck serving at a beach house restaurant. Slice of life comedy ensues. Oh, and lots of cool tentacle tricks.

For further notes, please consult this video's information page on A-M-V.org.

Bumper music: "Curtain Rise" from the Melty Blood: Actress Again soundtrack
Credits music: "Stage Clear" from Sonic the Hedgehog 2, by Masato Nakamura (plus appropriate sound effects)
