AMV of the Day: Just Can’t Get Enough (Bakemonogatari)

In honor of site anime editor pantsukudasai56 finally getting his Bakemonogatari blu-ray set it’s more than proper to have the latest “AMV of the Day” come from that very anime series.

“Just Can’t Get Enough” is not just the title of the AMV but the name of the song used for the video. I’m not a huge fan of The Black Eyed Peas but this song seemed quite appropriate in focusing the video on the harem and romance aspect of the series. Bakemonogatari pretty much a harem series but with some heavy supernatural themes to it. The video shows some of that especially when Black Hanekawa (cat girl) appears, but mostly it sticks to the main lead in Araragi paired up with the different girls he comes across in the series.

The video’s creator, joserbuitrago1, does a very good job in syncing up the lyrics with some of the anime lip movements to make it seem characters like Araragi, Senjougahara and Hanekawa are singing the song themselves. I’ve noticed that AMV either just avoid trying to sync up the lyrics with the anime or do so to great result. This video is of the latter variety.

Past AMVs of the Day

AMV of the Day: A Prelude to Dreams

The latest addition to the “AMV of the Day” stable I first saw in the final day of this year’s Anime Boston this past Spring. It’s title is “A Prelude to Dreams” and I will say that it’s one of the more interesting and unique looking anime music videos I’ve seen.

“A Prelude to Dreams” has won several awards from many anime conventions one of which was this past Spring’s Anime Boston as it won the “Best Other” category. It also won a the “Judges’ Choice” in the same convention. It was really the only AMV in the whole convention which deserved to win two awards. It’s creator, tehninjarox, did a great job in using scenes from thirteen anime series and films and created a well-edited video to accompany the song chosen. The song is the second Imogen Heap AMV I’ve chosen for “AMV of the Day”. This song is the DJ XSaryux mix of the Imogen Heap track, “Hide and Seek”, and I must admit that the music matches well with the scenes chosen from those various anime titles.

The editing job also made great use of smooth transition effects which made each scenes flow into one another without breaking the dream-like effect the song and images created as the song progressed. I’ve seen probably half of the titles the creator used for this music video and I was glad that some of them were from the anime film Summer Wars and the mahou shoujo series “Puella Magi Madoka Magica”. It’s always great to see those two used in created ways outside of what they were already made for.
