Okay, time for brutal honesty. It's not a terrible video, but if you did a quick <a href="">search</a>, you would've seen that there are over 1000 Dragonball related videos. Most are terribly edited, are poor quality footage wise, and redundant, which brings me to my next point. Your video is in low quality Realmedia format, and frankly, it just doesn't shine. The song has a tired, overused aspect to it. Also, most people don't like Realplayer because of numerous reasons I don't feel like going into, so they won't be able or willing to see your video.

So in conclusion:

1. Dragonball whatever videos are overdone, and the well is poisoned. Few people are willing to look at them. You will need to broaden your anime horizons all around, if you haven't already, to succeed, AMV and conversation wise. Ask around in the "General Anime" for recommendations, and be sure to list what you've seen already.

2. Realmedia is not a good choice of format, for anything. Use DivX or MPEG next time.

3. Something to keep in mind regarding future videos: if the song is new and big and out there, it has probably already been done to death here.

4. You seem to have decent potential, if you get some of the moves down and experiment and practice. Check out Ermac's <a href="">guide</a> as a starting point. Also remember, being a "forum playah" can get you more publicity for your vids.

Good luck in your future AMVs!
