Even if a character fits into one of the cliches listed above, if you can make a video proving that despite the cliche, she's a strong (well-rounded, engaging) character then you're free to use her. :)

Example: code-chrono's using Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket. While she certainly falls into the first stereotypical category, she also has hidden depths to her character which come out from time to time. She's not a flat, single-dimensional stereotype, so while she does fit into a cliche, I would still consider her a strong character. (Although I will admit that I believed her to be pretty flat for awhile in that series - she was just TOO good, you know? But then you get those little gems like when she shoves Akito.)

I see, thought so. Anyway I did come up with an idea however I don't think I'll be able to do it at this time so good luck with the project.

Good question. My roommate in college was a huuuuuuuge Armitage fan but I never really got into it, so I can't recall my feelings on the subject.
If YOU feel that she's a strong character and believe that you can make that point come across in a segment, then feel free to use her. I'm going to be trusting my contributors' judgment in most cases here, because while I have seen a LOT of anime, I have by no means seen them all. :) (Or remember them all, as is the case here.)

don;t have time to join, but I'd say that Both Matsura and Mana from Sola would be great for this project. Especially Mana, she handles things so well and cool in the show that just gets you thinkin man what a breath of fresh air. Those of you who have seen sola I think know exactly what I speak of ;p

which when i told myself not to join anymore MEP the feminism theme of this is too tempting. Okay I'll take:

Character: Clare
Anime: Claymore
Song: Dark Tranquility - The Mundane And The Magic
Style: Action

and someone take Romeo x Juliet <_< If I finish my track early then I can do a Juliet one?

I would like to join. This sounds like a good MEP.

Character~ Maya Kitajima or Ayumi Himekawa
Anime ~ Glass Mask 2005
Song ~ ?
Artist ~ ?

Glass Mask 2005 is not a very well known anime. Its extremely UNDERRATED. I know I want to make an amv out of either both of the lead female characters of the show.

There is currently no amvs made of with this anime. I been meaning to make an amv but have not found a solid idea yet for a full amv. This MEP maybe a great place to showcase Glass Mask 2005 and its awesomeness.

I think there is a big differences between a track that is 1 min compared to a track that is 2 mins. When I watch a MEP I like it when all the tracks are around the same time lengths. This makes it feel balanced.

Ha! I JUST brought up that possibility to DOKool on AIM like, 2 hours ago. If he doesn't take R x J, you may feel free to make another video as "secondary." Basically, if one of the original 10 doesn't make the cut or drops out of the project, I'll be looking at the videos in the secondary list and choosing the best of them to take the vacated spots.
Also, if there's a truly EXCELLENT video in the secondaries, I'll consider lengthening the project beyond 10 entires to accommodate.

I'll certainly take that into consideration, but as of now I'm going to stick with the guidelines I have laid out.

You know, I have something for this MEP using Lucy from elfen lied, but... It's more horror then it is action but it does have action in it... If you want a character with a strong horror trait then I'll give it to ya. It's been sitting on my HD for about 3 months. I doubt I'll ever finish it cause I lack footage. It's short, If you want to see it get ahold of me. It hasn't been released anywhere or anything just so ya know.
"The people cannot be [...] always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to [...] the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to public liberty. What country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned [...] that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."-Thomas Jefferson

Ok, main post updated. We've got 10 contributors now, but like I've said before, secondaries are also welcome.

Eva-Fan, I put you down as a contributor for now, PM me a link for your Elfen Lied video and I'll check it out. From everything I've heard about that character/anime, I think it'll work.

Autraya: Since you can't make a "firm commitment" yet I'll put you on the secondaries list. Ok?

Radical Yue: Of course zombies can rawr! :D It just needs to be preceded by a "BRAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIINSSSSSSSS........"
