AMV of the Day: You Can Be King Again (Hotarubi no Mori e)


hotarubi no mori e

In my absence, Lisa Marie did quite a great job picking up the slack when it came time to put up a new anime music video. She had quite the eclectic choice of videos that ran the gamut from comedy, space opera, ecchi to drama.

As I continue my return back I thought it was high time to put up a new AMV and this time from an anime I haven’t even seen. It’s actually an anime that even the site expert pantsukudasai56 hasn’t seen but had heard of. The anime in question is the supernatural romance anime film Hotarubi no Mori e.

Just from researching what the anime was about I knew this was going to be one of those shoujo fares that I would need to find time to watch. It helps that the video’s creator, youlazybum, did such a great job pairing scenes from the anime with one of my favorite songs these past ten years, Lauren Aquilina’s “King.”

So, here’s my latest AMV of the Day, “You Can Be King Again.”

Anime: Hotarubi no Mori e

Song: “King” by Lauren Aquilina

Past AMVs of the Day

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.

Anime of the Day: Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing (Ace Attorney)


Today is not just Communist New Year.  It’s also 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.

So, in honor of Law Day, here’s an Ace Attorney AMV!
