Last Man Standing

    Happy New Year everyone, here is the last AMV for the year. This AMV features the message of never quitting, so let's make 2012 a productive and successful year and be the last man standing. Although the part about selling your soul ( in the lyrics) to be the last man standing doesn't seem like the logical answer, instead try to become closer with the people around you, and help out where possible, Make karma your bitch... not a bitch!

Anime: The Legend of the Legendary Heroes (Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu)
Song: Last man standing
Artist: Hammerfall

Chick Chicky Boom!

    Another amazing video by Ileia. This AMV is called Chick Chicky Boom, and is a fast paced hilarious AMV. She did the transitions really well, the mood of this AMV is right on, an excellent edit with the action on screen going perfectly with the music.

Song: Jim Carrey - Cuban Pete
Anime: Golden Boy
Editor: Ileia

About the Anime: Kintarou Oe (the main character) doesn't look like it, but he is a genius who completed all his university courses and then quit before graduating. He becomes a wandering student, going from place to place on his bicycle, seeking to learn what he can about life, the world, and women. He is willing and able to do any job he has to prove himself. His travels take him to a variety of locations and a variety of women, each who learns to love the hardworking guy, but not before he can run off.

Girls Girls Girls

    Girls girls girls, this AMV is full of girls. It is a chick song and the video is edited by a girl and she did a great job. The video has some pretty cool scenes in it, not a fan of mecha for some reason but again this is a well done AMV.

Song: NDS vs Tom E - 2gether 4ever (Clubraiders Remix)
Anime: Macross Frontier
Editor: Ileia

    Here is another video by Ileia made from the anime Arjuna. Have Arjuna on a to-watch list but haven't got around to it yet. The story to Arjuna goes as so, a girl named Juna was just an ordinary high- school girl, right up until the day she died in a motorcycle accident. But there, in the twilight of death, saw the future of the barren earth destroyed by the Raaja, and was offered a second chance at life if she would stop them. Now she must learn to cast aside her thoughtlessly destructive ways and face her destiny as the Avatar of Time, the one being who can decide the fate of the planet.

Song: Lisa Miskovsky - Still Alive (Paul Van Dyk Mix)
Anime: Arjuna

    Ok last video from Ileia, for now.

Safety Dance AMV

    Everybody knows the Safety Dance song, but most people have no idea what anime is used in this AMV. The anime seems to be a popular anime amongst fellow otaku though.

Song: Safety Dance - Men Without Hats
Anime: Nichijou
Editor: Shin

Watch on Youtube

About The Anime

     Story: So the story is this... nothing. Just absolutely nothing except that it's about the life of Yukko, Mai and Mio at school and everyone around them. At first you see also Nano-chan and the mini professor, but later on they are also part of the story of the three main characters. Other than that... everything is just shorts of complete and udder randomness and chaos, full of hilarity that you'll roll on the floor laughing. Sometimes even laughing your ass off.

    There is also the helvitica standard shorts, which are just complete random shorts that sometimes don't make any sense, but sometimes do. They do leave you laughing and with a WTF? face.

Fate Matrix

    This AMV is called Fate Matrix and is an MEP(multi-editor project) made by Shin & GuntherAMVs. Enjoyed this AMV so much that it needed to be shared. It is a pretty cool AMV with a girl controlling the fate of others from her computer.

No Handlebars AMV

    The amount of different anime in this AMV is staggering. Can't even imagine how long it took to gather all the clips for this AMV. 

    A quote from the author "The reason why I wanted to make this AMV is because I fell in love with the song" that sounds like as good a reason as any.

Song : Flobots - Handlebars
Anime : Yumekui Merry, Code Geass, Elfen Lied, Pandora Hearts, Naruto, Clannad, Air, Higurashi no naku koro ni, Ergo Proxy, K-ON!, Soul Eater, Karas, Panty and Stocking with Garterbeld, Lucky Star, Ef a tale of memories, FLCL, The World God Only Knows, Death Note, Steamboy, Chobits, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, GOSICK, Chaos Head, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Togainu no Chi, Hellsing, Otome Yokai Zakuro, Black Rock
Shooter, Kuroshitsuji, Jigoku Shoujo.

    The creator of the AMV explains his creation   "to make my meaning clear (I suck at explaining things, sorry please bear with it) :
    This AMV describes the life of a person who is slowly growing up and learning about the world. First we see the children play, this should represent the person when it's thoughts are still pure and he/she is really happy.
This person is very eager to learn about the world and the things around him/her so bit by bit it learns and it is proud to show the results.
After some time it knows very much, even about things which are dangerous and could cause very much damage if used wrong(like it knows the 'strings that control the system' ).
And from that point you can see that the person is using it's knowledge wrong.
It wants to become powerful and control a country, he wants other humans to obey him/she while threatening them with the things he/she has invented to harm them.
At a certain moment the person has very much might only because the humans under him/her are afraid to be executed(that's what happens to all the others who don't follow...).
At that moment the person sees he/she has gone to far, this isn't what it meant to do when he/she began learning and the person gets some kind of mental breakdown.
From then the person starts all over to live a better life in a peaceful way. (or you can see it as another person who starts as a pure innocent child and is going to be a dictator... -like a loop- ).

AMV Insanity

    This AMV was really good, filled with intense scenes and the music was just the right tempo, not to fast but definitely not slow. Right away I had recognized the characters from wallpapers based off the manga. The anime adoption looks real good based off this AMV. If in your in to the horror genre then this is the series for you and it is called Deadman Wonderland

Electro Penguin

    Have never heard of this anime or band (no surprise) and most likely wouldn't actually watch the anime, but this video is awesome! The song is right up my alley and Chiikaboom did a great job of putting it together.

Anime: Mawaru Penguindrum
Song: "Radiator" Family Force 5
Editor: Chiikaboom

For those interested this anime is not about "Crime Fighting Penguins" it's a comedy love story!

Naruto Shippuden Pain Battle

    Have been following Naruto as a fan for quite a while. It started with the anime but being a big fan of Berserk was missing the manga experience cause it's releases are to far apart, so went back to the very beginning Naruto in the manga. The series is just amazing in print form as it is in video, so much so that I hardly watch the anime. When I do watch it, it is out of the curiosity of seeing the differences or watching a battle. The series is just simply amazing, and here is a fight scene with Naruto and Pain. It is a really sweet music video and probably the only for Naruto that I've like so far.

    The world of Naruto is probably the most interesting aspect of the show. Despite being a show about ninja, the soldiers in this manga are really ninja in name only. They're actually much more reminiscent of modern soldiers with flashy ninja magic than mysterious, stealthy ninja.

    There characters are a rather nice aspect of the show. Many of them are archetypes, but I find them entertaining regardless. They've all had there own backstory come out over time and it add a layer of depth that others don't have.

Berserk MMV - Fix You

    Just heard that there is a live action Berserk film coming by January 2012, and though that a Berserk MMV or AMV is in order. Got an old blog post Berserk MMV Called The Beast Within Berserk is rated by many to be the all time best manga ever, and would agree. It has been in a slow but steady production since December 1, 1990, and am always ecstatic to see a new issue of the amazingly epic manga. So one could only imagine how we reacted to here that a live action film is coming, to put it plainly, jumped up and cheered. Then though, they better not mess this up! The film we be broken into a series, and will cover the whole manga (or so they say).

   Artist: Coldplay
   Song: Fix You
   Manga: Berserk

   Artist: AFI
   Song: Home is Nowhere
   Manga: Berserk

Naughty Song ^_^

   Ok so there has been a big gap since the last post so this one is well worth it. Started watching this AMV and about fell out the chair, some friends that were over said that they'd be singing that song at work all week.

Song: The Wet Spots - Do You Take It?
Anime:  Bakemonogatari, B Gata H Kei
Editor: Kosmit    Download [ Torrent ]

About the Anime
Simply put, half the show is about the romantic relationship between the Senjougahara and Araragi.
The other half is about a constant argument between two values: The rational vs the idealistic, with Araragi as Mr. Nice Guy seeking happy end for everyone. Solution of supernatural abnormalities as the topic of the argument.

Hachikuji, Kanbaru, and Hanekawa's arcs develop the relationship of leading couple while offering a new topic to the story. Each arc is an incident focused on a different girl, but the all arcs combine to show a whole picture of Araragi and Senjougahara closing their personal distances.

"Bakemonogatari" is essentially a verbal performance with visual support. Story is driven by back and forth debate on various issues.

Paranoia Drift

    This AMV isn't related to the anime movie The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (Toki wo Kakeru Shojo), but the creator used the scenes so well to portray feeling they were going for. An excellent AMV with psychedelic visuals, character profiling, seriousness, and horror.

About the Anime
    If you suddenly gained the ability to quite literally leap through time, what would you use it for? The sheer fun of it? Getting better grades? Or something else? What if you merely wanted the present to continue; to still live out those memorable days with your friends, playing around and having fun; rejecting the future and not wanting things to change? In Toki wo Kakeru Shojo, a girl is presented with this exact possibility. She suddenly finds out that she has been granted the ability to travel through time, and uses this ability for the purposes mentioned above. At first she tries to correct all the mistakes she made that same day she got the ability; from preventing making a mess out of things in cooking class to dodging people being hurled towards her. And before soon, she tries to keep the times from changing, undoing love confessions and other events which can change her and her two friends' lives.

However, everything has a consequence. 

    Even the seemingly most insignificant and puerile of acts can have grave consequences, as such acts are often made out of ignorance or selfishness; both which are traits that rarely bring out a good result if actions are based on them. Our heroine has to learn this the hard way, as she sees how fateful her so-called insignificant acts are, and how wrong she is in her childish beliefs. What she want is merely to keep the fun times around; with her and her two beloved friends. She wants time to stop, to remain in the present. However, time is inexorable; the future is relentlessly closing in on us. And she has to learn this the hard way. But she learns. Through hardships, through death, and most important of all, through love, she learns that the future is not something to be avoided. Rather it is something to be cherished; something one should embrace.

    And that is the basics of the plot and characters in this story; a girl who repeatedly travels back in time to keep the times as they are, and actually learns during this process that it is better to look forward and into the future rather than intransigently dwell on the present. Her two friends aren't focused on that much, but both are portrayed beautifully when they are, both the though-shelled Chiaki and the obliging Kousuke. Accompanying the beautiful plot is a standard-fare movie animation; which means beautiful and detailed landscapes, cityscapes and backgrounds. And while character movements are fluid, the designs themselves are a bit lackluster, and should have been more detailed. The soundtrack which follows on top is equally beautiful, with serene piano tracks accompanying the at times laughter-provoking and at times melancholy story, and a somewhat expected, yet beautiful ending theme.

    Toki wo Kakeru Shojo is a beautiful movie, which is good for many things, but especially its underlying hints about looking towards the future and accepting that the present will change as well as the simple message that every act has a consequence; especially childish and ignorant acts at that. And even if such themes does not interest you, I think this beautiful story is well worth spending one and a half hour of your life watching ( Source: MAL)

Anime/Manga Video

    This is an amazing instrumental Anime/Manga Music Video, the music and video have been synced, sort of like a music visualizer (really sweet) and the visuals are simple amazing. This AMV made me very interested in what the series is about, with all the different magical creatures and what not. The creator of the video did a great job of selecting scenes from the Manga and the Anime, bringing together a really awesome experience. Still a fan of manga so MMVs always grab my attention.
  • Author: SilentMan [ SilentMan ] 
  • Studio: Studio 44
  • Video: Natsume Yuujinchou
  • Audio: Coldplay - Life in Technicolor


Natsume's just an ordinary kid, except he can see spirits, just like his grandma Reiko could. Reiko, though, used to bully the spirits, and bound them to her will in the "Book of Friends". Now that Natsume has inherited this book, a never-ending stream of spirits is coming after him. With the help of a spirit "cat" (who really just wants Natsume to die so he can have the book), Natsume spends his days dissolving the contracts that bind the spirits and trying not to get killed.

Music Video Made in Blender

    On the BlenderNation website there was a post from a long time Blender user titled 
"27 inspirational and jaw dropping Blender creations", by the community of course. After watching them, definitely recommended checking them all out, the longest one was under 10 minutes.

    Well 1 of those 27 videos is a music video, it was a good one to. It definitely inspires one to create a music video with Blender. Any who the title for the video is  Kopek-Stop and the artists web page is @ Online Portfolio of Eoin Duffy

   Don't forget Blender is Open Source Software that is free, there are hundreds of different learning resources that are also free and most of them are great quality. BlenderGuru is one example of great free tutorials. Andrew provides the a base file to start with, and the one he finished, plus other things like the textures are available, and when you open the .blend file it has all the textures and everything down to the layout of the program windows and buttons from the last person who saved the file (again all with free software).

Music Visualizer AMV

     Really like this post's AMV, and am inspired to recreate it with with my favourite aspects from visualisers like milkdrop with Blender, GIMP and OpenShot. That would be crazy and probably look really awesome, but wouldn't look like what imr3ssiv has created which is really "impressive" to say the least.

This AMV was created by: impr3ssiv [Untamed Illusions Studio]
Music by: Nalepa - Monday (Glitch Mob Remix)
Multi-Anime: Evangelion 1.11, Evangelion 2.22, Ghost in the Shell 2.0, Innocence: Ghost in the Shell, The Animatrix, Appleseed Ex Machina, Macross Zero, Ergo Proxy, Vexille, Pale Cocoon, Code Geass, Freedom

1st Creation!

    With a little help from various tutorials online have finally slapped together an AMV. It's not much, more like a sample of what's to come. Just been playing around with OpenShot and Blender to get comfortable and prepare for a more thoroughly planned out AMV. It's not even a full song, but it was a first go (hello world). The music isn't synced just slapped it over the video for sound.

Note: the 3d animated text near the end of the video was me using blender not the animated titles provided by OpenShot (that are actually using blender through python scripts and allot better). Click the video to goto youtube and watch in HD

    Again OpenShot is a super simple video editor that does some amazing things, Blender on the other hand is a whole other story. Looking at Blender for the 1st time can be scary, but with a little patience ones imagination can be brought to fruition. Can't wait to keep

New Year!

    Hello everyone, it's gonna a be a good New Year, and am looking forward to it. Have been busy with many projects. Am glad to be a member of  the OpenShot Video Editor. The project could always use contributors such as translators.

    Another project underway is the development of my video game, yet to be named. It is a simple game that has arcade style gameplay made with the help of Unity 3d game engine.

    Haven't posted a good AMV in along time so am glad to have found a good one based off of Naruto Shippuden. Just about every AMV for Naruto that I've seen was completely lame, scenes chopped up in windows movie maker and laced with Linkin Park. Every one shoould do them selves a favor and check out the power of Free Software (open source).

Artist: Tweaker
Music: Doom³ Theme

Awesomely eerie instrumental.
