AMV of the Day: Protectors of the Earth (Shingeki no Kyojin)

Shingeki no KyojinThe latest AMV of the Day has taken Japan and the rest of the anime-watching world by storm. I’m talking about the horror-action series Shingeki no Kyojin (“Attack On Titan”) that’s based on the manga of the same title by Hajime Isayama. This particular AMV uses the tried-and-true song “Protectors of the Earth” by Two Steps from Hell.

What is Shingeki no Kyojin?

It’s horror combined with dark fantasy, action and drama. It’s pretty much about whats left of humanity hiding behind massive walls that’s suppose to protect them from the giant humanoid-looking Titans who have no other goal but to devour every human they come across. It’s what would happen if you crossed the zombie apocalypse with giants instead of shambling corpses.

This video by LTTuall AMV does a great job of using the track from by Two Steps from Hell to create an action-packed anime trailer that shows some of the reasons why this anime series has become so popular so quickly.

Past AMVs of the Day

Trailer: Don John


I am as shocked as anyone to admit that I’m really looking forward to seeing a movie about a man who is addicted to online pornography.  However, in the case of Don John, it helps that the addict is played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who also makes his directorial debut with this film).  Add to that, how can you not be excited about seeing Robin and the Black Widow fall in love on the big screen?

Trailer: Fading Gigolo


Directed by actor John Turturro, Fading Gigolo has recently been getting a lot of buzz.  Some people have even speculated that it might get Woody Allen an acting nomination to go along with all of the probable nominations for Blue Jasmine.  All I know is that Fading Gigolo sounds like a bit of an over descriptive title.
