AMVs

Postby halcyon » Thu May 07, 2015 7:49 pm

Do any of you guys have favorite AMVs? I'm currently reading Radiance, so here's an unbelievably artistic AMV that vaguely reminds me of the Luminosity series: http://akross.ru/index.cgi?act=video;id=3414;l=e

Well, maybe not if you directly analyze the sentiments expressed in each, but both Luminosity and Sincerity feature subdued, understated, sentimental and romantic stories where the girl has very-probably-above-average IQ if her thought processes are being accurately represented without undue idealization.

(The only properly romantic fiction I can recall reading are Jane Austen novels, so I don't know if there is much fiction like that out there. Austen's Emma might qualify, though Emma herself is anything but subdued IIRC.)

That is just straight up indisputable fact.

I hate to admit it, but that might actually be better than Engel by objective standards. (Now I'm tempted to watch Princess Tutu, though I know I'll probably be disappointed.)

Thankfully, this thread is about your favorite AMVs, not the single best AMV of all time, so keep them coming.

Princess Tutu is actually really good! It takes several episodes to ramp up, though; you would be forgiven for watching the first four or five and thinking it was all going to be fillery crap.

I like this one but I don't know the anime source and it's a little heavier on the effects.

Various intersections of "God is a Girl" with both Ah! My Goddess and Haruhi deserve mention just for on-the-nose song choice but I don't know of any that are spectacular quality.

Oh, hey, RahXephon! I have watched RahXephon. I remember very little. It didn't make a lot of sense.

Thanks, I will try watching Princess Tutu then.

Many of the AKROSS winners are good. Among them, I especially liked this one: http://akross.ru/index.cgi?act=video;id=1407;l=e

That's a really pretty song (I'm gonna check out the artist) but I'm not getting a ton from the video part, maybe because I don't know the anime.

Starships (http://vimeo.com/46927209) is my favourite.
