Double Shifts

...are in my future, probably until school starts. 

Here is a gimmick that falls rather short of actually providing original content: YouTubery.

First, while I have lamented my having to work through my vacation, it is financially fortuitous. Sakuya here provides yet more reasons to be thankful.

The latest MMD upgrade (Version 9.23) looks pretty impressive. 
It appears that they've fixed that, umm, bug the older versions sometimes had animating skirts. 

Given the exuberantly elaborate costumes many of the Touhou characters wear, I was looking forward to seeing  how this new upgrade would look animating those outfits.

1 WTF did I just watch?  This must be the point where fanish in-jokes get utterly incomprehensible.

 WTF did I just watch?
5 scantily clad comely young lasses dancing by the pool. If this is not your cup of tea, then no harm no foul, but if you really don't comprehend the reasoning behind this then you may have deeper issues than I can address in a blog comment.
As to the "fannish in-jokes".... Hong Meiling is wearing her hair in Chinese meatballs to establish her (undead) ethnicity rather than the usual butcher beret and Tang-Zhuang trousers / cheongsam combo, Sakuya still has her hairstyle and throwing knives, Sanae has her frog and snake hairpices, I have no idea who the other redhead is but it may be the drummer Raiko Horokowa whose outfit has a similar color scheme.   Finally Yuyuko is, as is typical, wearing an outfit multiple orders of magnitude more elaborate and modest than the rest. 
However  these highly specific examples of fan service are just incidental to the primary themes of the video's fan service which is female anatomy, choreography and fluid dynamics.

Also, it's "That Pool". On DLSite someone offered a computer model of That Pool compatible with several major renderers; this AMV may have used that particular model.

4 MMD may still have a problem with clothing collisions, but they sure have the gainaxing algorithm down. Wowie!

5 I was talking about the first video, actually.

6 Oh. Well, then. That one's incomprehensible.

7 That was my favorite.  I thought it was clever.
