I know, I know. I should be writing up the latest from Anime Boston. But sometimes, there are things that just cannot be explained. They’re wondrous works of passion and devotion that are just so strange that they need to be shared with the world!

This is such a case.

On February 10, user dfj688 uploaded a most intriguing MikuMikuDance (MMD) fan-video to YouTube. I know, I know. These things are like cockroaches – once one hit YouTube, they got everywhere. So what made this one so special?

The video in question is a shot-for-shot recreation of classic Tom & Jerry cartoon “Down Beat Bear,” with Touhou characters taking over for the roles of the iconic animal characters. The short is painstaking accurate, and really speaks to the devotion of some fans out there. the full episode is below, so give it a look!
