While I started off in loving anime on the level I do now, I have to admit that it’s a form of entertainment that pretty much fights to dominate my time in addition to film, gaming and music. I’ve started on the path to try and attend as many anime conventions as humanly and, most importantly, financially possible. While attending Anime Boston 2008 I was introduced to a certain growing trend with anime fans and that’s the art of AMVs aka Anime Music Videos. It’s pretty much some enterprising and very talented individual taking a favorite song and then taking the appropriate scenes from their favorite anime and creating a music video out of it.
While a majority are quite amateurish and very awful there remains a small number of such profound awesomeness and bodacity that they rise to the top for all to marvel at. I saw one such example of awesome bodacity at Anime Boston 2008 and I believe it should’ve won “Best in Show” and not just “Best Editing.” For some anime fans who love these kind of stuff they’ve seen and continue to see this particular AMV, but I think it deserves to be seen by….in the words of Norman Stansfield….E-VERY-ONE!
