Why is it that DBZ+Linkin Park is so widely used? (serious)

This forum is for the general discussion of Anime Music Videos.

Although, I haven't read the entire thread/topic, I've made up my own opinion on this before. As many Dragonball Z/Linkin Park videos there are, there's only about 35 of them downloadable. Most of these 35 actually have more than 3 opinions, which surprised me. I also know some of the people that have made these videos, such as Hakura, Rozard, NeoGohan, and MeriC. I just think that Dragonball Z is overused so much is because Cartoon Network highlights it as it's best anime. It's an introduction anime, which makes it appealing for people to use. It's also one of the easiest animes to get a hold of, meaning in DVDs, VHS, or downloaded clips/episodes. Linkin Park is a mainstream group, where the songs are mainly rock. Since they are a very erratic group, it appeals to most men. I'm not sure why a woman would choose Linkin Park though.

Yay! I got mentioned! Heh, well, that was my first video. I was naïve, and I thought "Hey, I'll make a good Linkinball Z vid!" Well, it didn't turn out that bad. Tell me yourself. http://www.animemusicvideos.org/legacy/video.php?v=3942

Granted my first video was Linkin Park + DBZ, but I have learnt more than about premiere etc since then... Take in mind that most "newbies" make a linkinball z video because they are "high" on how cool amvs are. Atleast I was anyways, so don't reticule them too much as they are just learning the programs, whether that be Premiere or WMM, I used Premiere so I was rather overwhelmed by all the options/effects etc.

My second video was way better compared to my first, instead of critizing them for using LP and DBZ, help them learn more about premiere and what it takes to make a good video etc. Dont hold it against them, help them out. Give them some encouragement instead of gripe (?)

Look forward to their second video to see how their skills are progressing, dont dread it.

my third vid was a Linkinball Z video, but that was in summer 2001, the time where this combination wasn't treated and I even hadn't had a internet-connection.
these vids are also treated because almost every idea of an DBZ - Linkin Park video is already used. the vids are less original.
there are many bad lbz vids, but that goes also for limp bizkit, system of a down etc.
the most newbies are making a dbz-vid as their first (me, too), most of them have no talent.
i know some people who have thrown together their lbz vid and from everyone around them cames "this vid is so awesome" just because the timing matches in one part and the others never seen an amv before.

Don't say "negaverse" (here on out referred to as "the N word"). I'll kill someone. I swear I will! The N word is a dub invention, and it's ULTRA RETARDED! :P

N World= Nonparticularydefinedgender World :twisted:

It seems so that if the N World really was... "negative" women would like other women while men like other men... but then then if men want men, and woman want women, how do they reproduce? :shock:

:x In order for society to work then, women would have to be breeded to think that they're men, so these woMEN will like real MEN because they think they are men... And men would have to be breeded to think they're WOmen, so they dress like women and other women will want them because they look like women...

:o So that would create 4 types of couples. Men/Men, Women/Women, Women/Tranvestite and Tomboys/Men. So only 2 of these types could actually produce babies... However if Klinky's ML+ML=BE principle (Or MaleLove+MaleLove=BabyExplosion) then the posibility of Women/Women producing Babies using Steven Spielberg's Jurrasick F/F fill-in frog DNA reproduction plot-deive could also be true... :o

Hmmm... I think I have figured it out! :D

I'm with the person who said angst.

The vid by Dark Kamui is the best one I've seen. I love the interplay between Vegita's need for self-reliance and personal power, juxtaposed with his reliance on and gruding respect for Goku. I'd been pointed to one that had a bit of interaction between Trunks and Vegita, and there was some Linkin Park song that focused on a similar theme, but I can't remember what it was.

I shouldn't post tired.

My first vid was a DBZ vid, but to The Offspring, a lesser known song. The reasons I've never put it up anywhere were 1)I've got no place to host it, 2)The only footage I had to use was clips I got from other music vids I had at the time and 3) I unknowingly used alot of really cliche material (Goku going SSJ, a scene from the Goku/Majin Vegeta fight, alot from the Cell Games, etc). I'd love to do it again with better quality footage.

Linkin Park, at first, seems like it'd be really easy to synch to. Most of the Linkinball Z videos I've seen do make an attempt and most succed in getting some timing down.

And that's my slack ass, amateur opinion. I now go off to cotemplate a Master Roshi/Bulma tribute done to "Fell In Love With A Girl"

Hmm... I wonder if I could con all the peeps in my DBZers mail archive to review my Vegeta vid... I'd probably get 500+ oppinions with all 10s :P

Dark Kamui! Your "In the end" video was incredible! not only did you fit the action of the song with e video, you were able to (uncommony and very tastefully) fit the emotion with the video.

weeell here is my take with this DBZ/Lincon Park debate... I think there is so may LP/DBZ is the same reason why there is so many Limp buscuit/DBZ amvs....they fit each other so perfectly. i'm not sure the motvation to trash dbz, maybe it is "cool" to trash dbz, but it is everone's perogative (i loath the day when us anime otakus start thinking it is cool to diss Akira and Onegai Techer) My only qualm with the influx of dbz in songs is that many of the same schenes are used and re-used and it desensitizes the audience of teh emothion of the scene. (and less original) yet the originalty of an overused schene can be revitilized if tastefully done) I really don't want you critics to convince teh creators that doing DBZ wil give you bad billing, because there is many more great possibilities with music can be integrated into this series. Bottom line is you just need to produce an awesome video or it may be overlooked, there is already so many vieos on the database that anybody can be overlooked---one way to not be overlooked is combine good music(linkon park) with good video editing(easyer said than done)

well, to say the least....none of us really look into DBZ anymore because going through all of that mess just for a couple being good is not worth it, especially those with 56K.

So for a DBZ vid to be actually popular it would have to eyecatch TONS of people. So for those of you who are making so very few excellent ones, blame your fellow fans for your troubles.
