I had some lack of motivation but I'm finally done with this run!
Here are some notes about the run:
I used the star for my advantage in many places. In the boss, I shot the fireball from the pervious room so that I could get the star ready faster.
Some better star usage here. After picking up the secret item and riding the bird, I choose the lower path so I can use star which is faster. I used same kind of tactics in the boss as Nitsuja. I had to be slower though because the boss wasn't asleep anymore :P
I couldn't use the same death-shortcut as Nitsuja because I had to get the secret item. I was a bit faster in the boss.
Luck manipulation is very annoying in Gimmick! It took me a lot of rerecords to get the desired fireball from one of the enemies. I used a lot of shortcuts, and some small optimization in the boss.
I used a lot of Nitsuja's tricks but I was able to make them a lot faster. I killed myself after getting the secret item, it's over 20 frames faster but seems bit boring. Again, boss was a bit faster.
I came up with a little shortcut in the 4th room, I used star to go from the right side. And I was able to enter the secret room a bit faster this way. The last room before the boss was a lot faster than in Nitsuja's run. Minibosses were pain to manipulate. I came up with the idea to use the bomb first and it saved some frames. In the second miniboss, there's invisible wall so I can't just enter the pipe :/ Boss was greatly improved.
I mounted the white monster-thingy earlier. Star was used a lot
And just to note that almost every room was faster when compared to Nitsuja's run (some were as fast as in Nitsuja's run).

Nitsuja: His run was great help when doing mine. Guybrush and Randil: They whipped some motivation into my lazy ass to finish my run :P And special thanks to Guybrush, he helped me with this submission text.
adelikat: Excellent improvement. Accepting for publication.
