Hi Yoshi. Very nice looking reel. Cool music too. I personally might use something a little more dramatic and not as light to accentuate the strength of your work
Here are my thoughts. I think overall I would move some stuff at the end to earlier in the reel to make sure it is seen. Always start strong. Who knows how long they may watch it.

0:00 Thats a fun open
0:05 Titles are clean and have nice movement
0:11 OK shot
0:15 Same kind with more people in shot
0:20 Same kind with wipe at end
0:25 Nice push
0:32 I would lose this shot. It doesnt broaden on what we have seen so far.
0:38 Another nice push
0:45 Great circle. I would be tempted to place this earlier
0:48 Adds nothing for me. I would lose this shot.
0:32 Nice 2 shot circle
0:56 Zombie cu doesnt say steadicam move to me
1:00 OK reveal of group
1:10 OK group to single follow
1:22 So short with minimal move. It doesnt read to me
1:24 - 1:34 Nice music video sequence. Maybe earlier?
1:35 Nice follow to OTS 2 shot. I might be tempted to move this earlier
1:50 - 2:05 Great running. I think this should also be earlier to show off your versatility and skills

I hope this helps.

One last thought Yoshi. I think the length of 2:12 or so works very well.

Well done.
