"In the name of the Harvest Moon, the Sprite Rangers will punish you~"
Not so much of a trick as just a silly tribute, but this was part of my attempted contribution to the comedic spirit of April Fools' Day 2010. Hope it counts. =P
Okay, so, I took the tune of the theme song "Moonlight Densetsu," from the anime Sailor Moon, and wrote extremely corny lyrics for what I imagine would be the theme song for the fictional TV show "Harvest Squadron Sprite Rangers" that exists inside the videogame Harvest Moon: Animal Parade.
If you play HM:AP and don't even know what I'm referencing, then you've missed out on some quality entertainment on your in-game TV every Sunday! Here's a playlist of posted recordings of the 16 episodes: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list...
The visuals are based on the Japanese Sailor Moon OP, the first sequence collected here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8d08T... I just tried to incorporate all the random ideas from the show (plus a bit from the actual plot of the game).
The in-game show features the five Harvest Sprites forming a superhero team (i.e. amusingly ridiculous super sentai anime spoof - complete with masks, transformations, and the assistance of a special sixth Phantom Sprite) in order to help the Harvest Goddess protect the planet (well, mostly just the cows) from Space Devil Hamil (an evil alien version of Mayor Hamilton) and Commander Gilligan (an evil alien version of... well, you figure it out, and I dare you not to laugh).
Also, at the end of each episode, the show in the game gives you a little part of a secret phrase... After watching all the episodes, you can piece the letters together to get the location of a special show-related hidden item. ...Or, you could find out the location via the same letters that I scattered throughout this video via subliminal messaging. Did you catch it?
Five friends from seemingly peaceful Planet Harvest Quite soon to learn that evil never does rest After their transformations, they'll be the best They are the Harvest Squadron Sprite Rangers!
When villains threaten their beloved homeland They just won't hesitate to take a stand There'll be a battle for justice that's so grand You'll know that they're the real Sprite Rangers!
The most basic elements are where the magic starts: Fire, water, earth, wind, and heart
With special powers granted by a Goddess So bravely sworn to defend all goodness Knowing the fight for true justice is endless They are the Harvest Squadron Sprite Rangers! The littlest superhero team! Come see them in...Harvest Moon!
