Infinite Stratos GIF

Well this was my first attempt in making an animated GIF out of a video. It took a bit of time in perfecting this GIF and to make the file size as small as possible. I had to resize the 720p resolution down to around 180px. Even then, the file size was still too large. I had to do some frame skipping in order to bring the size right down.

I know it's my first time and there are plenty of things that I need to do for next time.
1) Trim the unnecessary parts out
2) Keep the scene short as possible
3) Keeping it 497x281 (because it fits well into G+)
4) Have the file size to be under 5MB

Well, enjoy my first animated GIF! It's a bit long...but bear with it. =)
