Description: Anime Central 2004 extra video. Feel the adrenline on the jam-packed Acen dance floor. See the interview with Mr. Horse and Mr. Gorilla, what they think about each other, and the portrait Mr. Horse drew for the cameraman (on a banana!!!). Followed by a marvelous hallway musical performance by Jeremiah and his friends, Andrew and Ordo. See if you can identify the songs they played. This is the stuff you won't find on Fansview.
