Chidori vs Rasengan

Well, the title says it all, doesn't it?
After being a die-hard "Naruto" fan for so long, it was only a matter of time before I decided to start producing my very own Naruto video project. After all, with the editing power of Adobe After Effects CS4 and Sony Vegas Pro at my fingertips, what's to stop me from fulfilling my fanboy ambitions, eh? [smiles]

And so, I give you "Andrew vs Alvyn - Chidori vs Rasengan"!
The video was inspired by both anime series: "Naruto" and "Naruto Shippuden". The footage was filmed on 11/8/2012 at the Swan Lake, Setia Eco-Park, Shah Alam. I took roughly around 3 to 4 days to edit the entire video. And of course, I rendered and exported the videos in glorious HD (both HD 720p and 1080p).
You can watch the video here:

But wait...
What exactly is a "Chidori", you ask? And what's a "Rasengan"?
Well, if you're a Naruto fan (or if you actually watch the anime or read the manga), then you'd probably know what these things are. But for those who have no idea what the "Naruto" series is all about, then I'm sure you'll just make the simple conclusion that the Chidori is, well, a ball of lightning. And the Rasengan is a round sphere of, uhhh, "swirling blue energy"...
From one perspective, yes, the two statements above are true - But only from a visual (graphical) point of view. The Chidori certainly LOOKS like a ball of lightning, and the Rasengan sure looks like a sphere of swirling blue energy! But in the Naruto universe, it's actually much deeper and more complex than that!

The definitions and explanations regarding both the Chidori and Rasengan are far too detailed for me to highlight here. Instead, if you really, REALLY want to know about the Chidori and the Rasengan in-depth, then please click either one of the links that I've provided below to learn more:

Well, I don't intend to make this post become too long. There's a whole lot of other things I "wanted" to blog about. For instance, college assignments, exams, UniFi, my new handphone (I finally got a TOUCHSCREEN phone! Oh yeah!), PC games and my computer, to name a few. But it's all just too much to jam into one little post. Oh well...
So, yeah, that's all for this update.

May the Force be with you...
