My biggest disappointments for this year's VCAs, were to see that Lost Soul didn't win Best Character Profile, that was a beautiful video to say the least...as well as seeing The Race not winning anything, that was extremely well done to say the least.

*goes and puts on The Race to blast out once more*

Could somone explain to me Jihaku's popularity and why it won four awards? As far as I could tell, this AMV was just a collection of random anime clips accompanied by a live action mouth singing a song. If the editor was trying to be coherent with his choice of clips in relation to the lyrics, I sure couldn't tell. Could someone enlighten me? :?

overall, I am satisfied with the results...It just fits the purpose of a popularity award :lol: (though I dislike sth like that)

actually I would have liked to see the Animasia project for the best MEP, but, hell, it's a popularity contest, so the success for amv hell 3 is clear.

Ah so sad, I wished to see "Lost Soul" as Number 1 in Character and maybe Drama, for me it was and is one of the best videos of the last year, sad that my wish did not come true :cry:

Aw! I'm sad to hear that! As I really enjoyed your videos just because of all the hard work and effort you put into them! But seeing how well done and how orginal your ideas are, I can guess they take a lot of work. Although I'm sad to hear this, I can understand why.
Somedays you just sit back and wonder... why me?

I was disappointed to see that Lost Soul didn't win as well (i voted for it obviously)

Also, i'd watch some of the videos that did win except i have one problem. I can't watch AVI files ( this laptop is a school one. we're able to put what we want on it so long as it doesn't break the blocks, and this laptop has blocked the installation of DIVX.. > < There's a few i REALLY wanted to see too.. T.T )

Grats to everyone who won. Especially glad to see Sierra Lorna win a few, as her vids are super awesome and I'm still in awe (her sister too... they're too god =_=). Also good to see AMV Hell 3... was highly expected, and I'm glad it got what it well deserves. :D Good job guys!

I can try, but I think the best you can do is watching the clip again.

What I felt watching Jihaku was a lonely voice singing for the thousand loners, drown in a mute crowded place.
Something that acts like a power supply to wounded heroes, like saori's prayer (stupid, but so fucking powerfull) or alike.
A "teenager clip" at worst, but a well done one.

You said it is a "random" edited clip, but I don't think so.
Chosen shots are edited in key moments to boost drama up (like "Monster" or "grave of the fireflies" shots).

About technical stuffs, like synch or visual effects, everythingis ok, well thinked and efficient.

A piece of choice.

Hope you'll see more through this clip.
