I saw some screen shots from it and it looks pretty high quality. The song isn't bad either.

Namie is so hot. Haven't seen any images, is it more like "Freedom" (This is Love) style animated, or less CG more traditional style?

I've never seen the video you're talking about, but it seems pretty traditional.

Given the ending of the video, it looks like this isn't a one-time thing.

Not a big fan of Namie. The whole thing reminds me of that Britney Spears video. But it's coming from Japan, what more can I say about it than that?

An animated alter-ego of Amuro is the lone survivor who wants to restore the once beautiful planet. She attempts to "convey a message of 'world peace' that transcends time" to the 21st century through a time-slip.

I hope the music, animation and direction are up to scratch, because that's really not the sort of plot which typically entices me.

Wait, what? Shocked
Not that i've followed Ms. Spears latest exploits (nor will I be inclined as such), but i'm gonna go out on a limb and say that none of Britney's vids ever resembled or were based upon/inspired by anime, either the medium in general or any specific works thereof.

Comparing Namie (hawt and talented) to Brittney (...neither) is just lame.
