    Post  Skye on Sun Feb 13, 2011 10:08 pm

    I love a good AMV and in this thread I hope we can all benefit from the joy of the really good ones. So add links to your fave AMVs and we will all enjoy life more.

    And what better way to start a thread about AMVs than with this one!

    Ah W.U.N.

    That is certainly a classic. But if you 'really' wanna see someone make a Soul Eater AMV then look no further than this.

    I don't think that's as good as the other one, song is better but the actuall editing is no way near as good

    Really? I happen to think that The Halloween AMV is one of the best on youtube. The visuals match up to the music perfectly and manage to be encapsulating even without there being a transition every half a second.

    Either way if you are in it for editing then here is an example of a perfectly edited Anime

    I'll bump in if I may - the first Soul Eater AMV link by Lauf made me go and check out the show, and see if it can be find in english somewhere. The second link for the same show from Elcia almost made me regret it. I just didn't like it for some reason. *nod*

    Anyway, I hope I can find it somewhere in youtube and these in english. While here, I'll ask you two anime fans - where can I find some good anime show that is in english? I just dislike listening to japanese for some reason. Is there some similar to Soul Eater anime that is voice acted in English? Something in the sorts of Shaman King, Hellsing, Devil May Cry, etc etc.

    Also, here is my contribution to the topic -

    Well if I am honest then I think that original Japanese anime is better than the dubs in many occasions (soul Eater being one). The only 'two' animes that I think are equal in dub as in sub are Hellsing Ultimate and Trigun.

    Just in case you have not seen either of those series here are some of my fave' amvs of the series.

    Hellsing Ultimate

    I can't say that these AMVs sum up Hellsing Ultimate at all. The original Hellsing series was mediocre at best whereas the Hellsing Ultimate series is one of the best Anime's out there. The art is stellar, the characters are unique, the setting is original, the fights are tense and by god if Alucard is not on a list of the biggest badasses in anime then the composer might need to check again. Ultimate is an original to video release, not because it it bad, because that way they can include all of the unrestrained horror that the Manga conveys.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yw3bzk_TDU (It uses 'This is Halloween' But applies a far more gruesome Hellsing touch)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yw3bzk_TDU (If the halloween song is not to your liking then this one perhaps will be)

    Trigun

    I'll admit that I have tried incredibly hard to find an AMV that does this series justice and by gods I have failed. It is a series that you can watch over and over again and each time take away something new from it. It is crazy and funny for about twelve episodes but then it rapidly descends into the shitstorm of hell. With some really badass fight scenes each of which are beautifully written and acted competently in both English and in Japanese.

    thanks a lot, Skye, gonna check out the Trigun. Have watched the Hellsing OVA though, yes. Awesome.

    In the meantime, check this out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVSJ668VcNY

    Still amv, just not "anime". I find it to be pretty epic, as I have always been interested in chinese culture wee bit more than japanese due to IRL connections.

    Firstly Avatar is actually an American made Animation and Anime is a style not just anything that comes out of Japan and technically Avatar fits the bill. I have always like Warriors as a song and I like a lot of the Michael Flately songs in Riverdance just not the performance itself. Celtic music ftw ^.^

    The AMV is timed beautifully and makes little to no use of effects and I gotta give it credit for being good without using them. It is a solid AMV and in return I shall give you an AMV that is quite technically not an AMV and a 'true' AMV just in case you do not like the first.

    http://souleaterepisodes.com/ Jap dub is better from what i've seen, though I prefere to watch in English too, as I can do other things while watching.

    There's a site to watch it on Rain Very Happy I really enjoyed it!

    Also Anime is a Japanease style, I think Avatar is very different from the style of most anime, but its basicly the same thing.

    This AMV is both awesome... And disturbing. It is a bit... Erm... term violating, perhaps. If the officers find it suiting, you may delete my post.

    If I am honest I'll say that the AMV is a little basic. It does not really make too much use of timing or effects.
    This is another Elfen Lied AMV but it makes better use of effects. I will note though that the effects are really overused in this AMV and in reality effects should 'only ever' be used when they add something to the AMV.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJFeew2Yrig

    Now I am not a one trick pony mind you so here are some pretty good AMVs from the four continuing anime Series that I follow.

    Fairy Tail

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWpAK_H-UFU - This AMV shows the crazy side of Fairy Tail but also the badass side. Watch the animation quality in the second half because Fairy tail is the best animated weekly release I have 'ever' seen. But for an Idea of just how good the action and the Animation is... there is no better AMV than this -

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXcqhMJMDao

    One Piece

    This AMV is just perfect to showcase the tragedy of this anime. It is hardly mentioned but this anime is incredibly dark at times. All of the main characters have tormented and scarred backstories and throughout the adventure the protagonists meet with a massive amount of hardship for themselves and the ones they meet. But it is the leader of the pirate crew - Monkey D. Luffy - and his insurmountable drive, unfailing spirit and almost uncanny ability to say and do exactly what should be done even if it is by accident.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXcqhMJMDao - A truly great AMV for a truly great anime.

    But we must not forget that throughout that hardship there are some really funny and great moments. But perhaps the best moments are the action of the series and the uniqueness of all of the characters. This AMV just showcases Luffy's badassness perfectly.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPrnCbyeVm4 - Monkey D. Luffy, the only man ever to be able to pick his nose and still look completely badass at the same time!

    Bleach

    I admit it. This series is far from the best I've seen. The colour scheme is really bland and uninteresting at times but that is because the feel of the anime requires it to be so. The fights are generic and the storyline is a little basic with just a few plot twists thrown in. Still I love the anime and here's why.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peHwKIybqKI - The action is in a level of it's own. Each fight scene, though generic, is done near perfectly and it is a beautiful cacophony when you reach the really important fight scenes like these -

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsajbiqHlww - Ichigo vs Ulquiorra

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4qKWXDBpT4 - Ichigo vs Aizen

    Finally - Naruto Shippuden

    Naruto's history is mixed at best. At times it is just dull and boring and uninteresting. The original series did not interest me nearly as much as Shippuden does. Even then at times it is less than we come to expect. The animation in the fight scene with Pein (that's how I spell it) sometimes dropped down to the level of a flash player project which irritates me. But the fight itself was good enough on oh GOD so many levels for me to forgive it. Take a gander -

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do0K__3X9l0

    And the emotion stirred up by possibly the greatest master ever to appear in any anime... ever. The best pervy old man by Far. Jiraya.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A01XGczHIk0 - Beautiful AMV that made me cry.

    I only seen the Elfen Lied one but I must say that I am impressed. It was really well done. Good job.


    Here's one of my favorites:

    Nice. A Very Emotional AMV. Now I am sorry to say this but I think I can top it.

    THis is perhaps one of my favorite AMVs. It uses little to no special effects and rides on the pure emotion of the visuals and the song. I can NOT watch this AMV without crying and I will also mention that I have not seen the anime... I do not want to. The AMV is so touching, so sad that it hurts to watch it. *breaks down into tears*

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOBqUXDLnGk - Here *sniffle* It's SO SAAAAAD!!! Anime... is beautiful.

    You seem to enjoy a good western animation so. Here's one from Avatar. It think it really captures Toph's character with a brilliant song from the much underrated film 'Treasure Planet'

    Here be some of my favourite AMV's. I tend to search for ones by characters usually. So I'll post a couple that I've seen.

    First off:

    Itachi Uchiha, because he is amazing, my fave character in any anime and so very tragic Sad

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKrRTRKv824

    The amv is nicely done I think and nicely edited. Love the song too, it's the reason I got into Breaking Benjamin Smile

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnyxKypfYWo&feature=related

    Another one of Itachi, Dangerous Mind by Within Temptation. A little harsh in retrospect but at the time, no one knew the truth (though I guessed and was right =D)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81P8FNV0u4c

    This one is for Byakuya Kuchiki...if anyone wonders, when he talks about his pride, he is actually talking about his adopted sister Rukia Kuchiki

    and finally:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lO49e_zOss

    A fan made trailer for Dragon Age: Origins. It uses This is War by 30 Seconds to Mars, the official song for the game, however, when I first saw this video, I actually thought it had been made by Bioware to advertise the game, I was shocked to find out it was fan made, it's that good...in my opinion :p
