This video starts off with the title card, which translates into, as the creator says "Friendship is magic, Chapter 25, Party of One" and transitions to Twilight and Celestia (who portray Rika Furude and Hanyuu Furude respectively), then it goes to Pinkie Pie, who takes the place of Rena Ryuugu. It repeats this cycle until the Mane 6 are all shown in the following order: Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Fluttershy, and then Rarity who portray Keiichi Maebara, Mion & Shion Sonozaki, and Satoko Hojou in order. Then it goes to Twilight again, this time she can be seen running (or galloping in her case) on water, and it cuts back to Pinkie, who is seen crying. Then it cuts away to a few famous places in the Higurashi series and an angry Celestia, who's eyes are glowing red. Then it cuts to Nightmare Moon, who portrays Miyo Takano, and the video cuts away to a shot of young Luna's hooves in the rain and it fades to her face, her eyes shaded out. The cuts to Twilight using her magic to pick up a special looking stone and the screen zooms out so the rest of the Mane 6 are seen. Then, the Pony version of the title can be seen and it shows a scene with the whole gang, and young Celestia, walking together. The video ends with Fluttershy opening a door an

  • The song used in the video is Naraku no Hana, the opening to Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai and hence making it a true crossover.
  • Spike makes no appearence in this video.
  • Fantasy Blade said he decided to make this video after watching Cupcakes, since they "both involve torture and death" as he put it, along with many other reasons, such as "the duo personalities the characters display".
  • Pinkie and Rena are commonly compared to each other, even before this video, due to their similarities with their degrees of insanity.
