More of The Evisen Video finds its way to the web this week, this time in the form of a full part from Shintaro Maruyama AKA Maru who delivers with plenty of fast pace, all terrain aggression. Those of you not au fait with the Japanese skate scene may perhaps remember Maru from the 2007 Consolidated video Goin' Bananas (which also included Walton-on-the-Naze's finest Ben Raemers prior to his joining the ranks over at enjoi), and it's safe to say that is skating is still as balls out gnarly as it was back then. Isolated ditch spots, awkward urban inclines and more than a few natural street transitions, this is stylish skateboarding backed up properly with well chosen obstacles. Even the dated looking Skatelite park which appears near the beginning of this part adds a certain element of 'skate everything, even if it's shit' to proceedings. A few New York City moments crop up throughout, but it is the Japanese terrain which dominates here and which will have any self respecting purveyor of crust weighing up whether to eat for the next two months or start looking at flights. 

Props also has to go to (as usual with any release from Evisen) to the vision of Katsumi Minami, with the filming and editing as worthy of praise as the skating which is framed within it. The video soundtrack, made with the project in mind by 5LACK, suits perfectly, and the animations definitely have something of Spirit Quest about them. 

For more from The Evisen Video you can check out Shor West's part which we posted a little while ago and Koichiro Uehara's, which along with Maru's part should be all the prompting you need to hit up Nick at The Palomino to grab hold of the video in physical form and see what else these nutters have been up to...
