AMV of the Day: Let Them Eat Rei (Neon Genesis Evangelion)


LetThemEatRei

In honor of GLaDOS’s cameo in Pacific Rim as the A.I. voice of the American Jaeger, Gipsy Danger, I’ve chosen an oldie, but goodie AMV from 2008 as the next “AMV of the Day”.

This has to be the very first AMV I’ve ever seen and it was in the spring of 2008 when I attended my very first anime convention with Anime Boston 2008. The video had won Best In Show and Best Drama. It used scenes from the very popular mecha anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, but more important to the convention attendees was the song used for the video: Jonathan Coulton’s “Still Alive” featuring the voice of GLaDOS herself, Ellen McClain.

“Let Them Eat Rei” was the name of the video and it does a great job in combining some of the dark humor from both the song and the anime, but also it’s more darker dramatic aspects. When I think about it I’m not even sure if this video had won Best Drama or Best Comedy, it could’ve won either in addition to Best In Show.

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion (Death & Rebirth), Neon Genesis Evangelion (End of Evangelion)

Song: “Still Alive” by Jonathan Coulton feat. Ellen McClain

  1. Just to clarify, it won the Judge’s Choice award at Anime Boston. I don’t know if it won awards at any other conventions, but that’s all it won there. Also, editing in the creator name and studio into the tags. And since I encouraged you to come to AB, and since as you admit this was the first AMV you saw, I’ll take all the credit for getting you hooked on AMVs and thus all the credit for AMV posts you make! :D
