AMV Of The Day: Serve and Protect (Space Battleship Yamato 2199)


It’s been a while since we did an AMV of the Day post here at the Shattered Lens.  With today being World UFO Day, this seems like a good time to rectify that situation.  And what better way to do it than with an AMV that features a lot of spaceships blowing up?

I have to admit that I kinda missed the whole news cycle where the President proposed a Space Force and it would appear that most people have now moved on from it.  (That’s what happens when each news cycle only lasts for 5 hours.)  Personally, I think it would be kinda neat to have a Space Force, just in case the Space Bugs turn out to be real or whatever.  Plus, it would probably be fun to conquer other planets.  As the old saying goes, “Earth first!  Makes Mars our bitch!”  Though if an American Space Force conquered Mars, wouldn’t that makes Mars the 51st state or something?  Or the 54th, assuming that California splits up before we get around to invading the red planet?  I don’t know.  I’m not really into politics so I can’t say for sure.

Anyway, if we do get a Space Force, I imagine it’ll look something like this video.

AMV of the Day: Leave Me Alone (Ace Attorney)


It’s been a few weeks since we last shared an AMV here on the Shattered Lens.  Our resident anime experts, Arleigh and Pantsukudasai56 are currently at Fanime Con in San Jose and I’m sure they’ll be returning with all sorts of interesting stuff.

Until they return, I’m going to go ahead and share another Ace Attorney AMV.

AMV Of the Day: Everybody Wants To Rule The World (Ace Attorney)


On top of everything else, today is Law Day!

Now, I know that Law Day sounds like a made up holiday but, believe it or not, it is very much real.  Dwight Eisenhower proclaimed the first Law Day on May 1st, 1958 and it has been observed every year since.  In fact, Congress even made it one of those official holidays that no one has ever heard of.

According to Wikipedia:

36 U.S.C. § 113 states, in part:

Law Day, U.S.A., is a special day of celebration by the people of the United States—
(1) in appreciation of their liberties and the reaffirmation of their loyalty to the United States and of their rededication to the ideals of equality and justice under law in their relations with each other and with other countries; and
(2) for the cultivation of the respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life.

(And since anyone can put anything they want on Wikipedia, you know it’s true!  That said, I have actually been to a few Law Day luncheons and they are just as much fun as you would think they are.)

So, with all that in mind, enjoy the special Law Day AMV of the Day!

AMV Of The Day: Brand New Day (Ace Attorney)


Hi, everyone!

My sister and I just returned from spending a wonderful weekend up at Lake Texoma.  I had a great time.  Honestly, you never know how stressed you are until you take a little vacation from it all and suddenly discover that you can actually breathe again.

Anyway, I wanted our latest AMV of the Day to somehow be connected to a wonderful weekend at a beautiful lake but I couldn’t find one.  However, I did find the next best thing!

This AMV combines footage from Ace Attorney with Neil Patrick Harris singing Brand New Day from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.  It all comes together surprisingly well.
