Author's comments and explanations:
Here is my run for ActRaiser 2. I would have done an ActRaiser 1 movie, but the simulation levels required more timing and randomness than I was willing to put effort in to. This is played on the hardest mode* and aims for the fastest time. Hits are taken to save time occasionally. I apologize for how long the movie is, but there are way too many levels + there are mandatory periods upon entering and exiting levels that chew up lots of time.

The only two areas I am unhappy with and can not seem to fix are level 4-2 (underground river) and the final miniboss fight in the tower (the shielded lion-goat demon). Otherwise, any parts where I take time to kill something, stand still, or take a hit, it has been weighed time wise to see if other options would be faster. The last fight with Tanzra had originally been over 2 minutes, so I decided to employ a few strategies until I cut it to below a minute.

Thanks to OgreSlayeR and Blechy for giving me some great feedback on the movie.

Truncated: This one deserves to be judged after being ignored for so long. Impressions:

Therefore, I think the judgement will be rejection.
