Rules:
1.)The video will not be posted by the creator
2.)The video will not have a currently active announcement thread.
3.)The thread creator should post their thoughts on the video to initiate discussion.
4.)The thread will start with a copy and paste of these 4 rules.



I'm surprised by how far some AMVs can go into the world and how many people have seen them. Take this video for example. This video thru the years has been seen by so many people, been hosted on so many websites, shown at so many cons, and to this day is still pretty popular. This video is even hosted on a lot of asian web sites. To me, a video is very successful when it's both very good and able to reach a wide audience. Now, I know there are a lot of popular videos on the org that usually get picked up by others and put somewhere else (i.e Skittles). But to me, this one is very special because it is an old vid nearly 10 years old now. I remember being excited to watch this video over and over again around the time it first came out.

It's a simple dance/montage video. Very fun and enjoyable to watch. This week, I came across this on my hard drive again and decided to open it. It's always a video that gives me nostalgia because it reminds me kind of 'good ol times.' A vid is also very impressive if it's something you can keep for a long time and is re-watchable. This video definitely does that.

To tell you in honest truth, it's very hard for me to find flaws in this vid. I really don't mind technical flaws in a vid and i tend to focus more on the content.
Yea it is an old vid. But it certainly has some value to it because it has influenced a lot of AMV editors to come. Who knows, maybe people will be watching this AMV 10 years from now too.

After nearly a decade, I still don't know the answer to this question about this video...

Where is the Trigun footage? :shock:

It's the dancing girl at 2:13, from the episode where Milly meets Wolfwood, IIRC.

This was what launched the whole fun dancy videos, IIRC.

I hate it for that.

But otherwise nice stuff - too bad it's still one of the best edited stuff in its genre.

Still my favorite "dance/fun" video of all time. Rarely have recent videos been even close to this well-edited or just plain "fun" and it's crazy to think it's nearly 10 years old!

...man I feel old.

Not everything can be yet another a slow, boring shinkai romance...


Personally I love the video. But I always have been a sucker for fun upbeat/dance vids. I will agree with nya that it's too bad that a decade later and this is still one of the best ones around.

It's still one of my absolute favorite AMV's. <3 While the footage quality hasn't aged gracefully, the editing and mood is still just THERE and it just FEELS right. Also, I don't know if the shinji part with the cassette player was effects or just part of the song, but it was just frankly a nice touch.

Makes me want to edit fun/dance, I just can't seem to get away from the crappy romance videos. >_<

Listed and shown as one of my picks for "the most influential videos of the past 10 years" because frankly, it is one of the best videos of the past 10 years. I don't think there's any one video that has held up any better. It started the "fun/dance" genre imo and still holds up next to today's 720p, effects ridden, strobe fests.

This video actually got me to go out and buy the DVDs for that series. It's a fun little show, and I wish somebody'd pick it up, but it's so obscure, nobody outside AMVers would buy it.

Like so many other people have said, this video (and atchang's Happy Boys and Girls a couple months later) launched the "Dance" genre, and it's still one of the best examples of it, despite the footage quality issues. I think what sets it apart from so many others is that it doesn't rely on effects to set the mood, but instead it leans on its timing, which is incredibly tight. The added touch of doing some edits to the audio (the tape player segment), which very few people were doing at the time, also added to its impact.

You know what's funny? The first time I saw this video wasn't at a con. Someone had actually made a Stepmania Dance Dance Revolution game to this entire video and this is where I first saw the vid.
