I hate to jump in first, but nobody else was biting.
Several Sailor Moon ones came to mind first, but this series is my favorite and I try to keep up with AMVs from it, so... that's what I'm gonna do. Also with an eye toward shoujoness, if possible (there are other great ones that aren't as shoujofied). So Revolutionary Girl Utena is the series for all of these.
Just a classic. One of my first exposures to the movie, and probably many other people's as well. Trippy with an undercurrent of epic, which is very fitting. I just couldn't start off a list of SKU Movie videos without listing this one.
Action, drama, lofty goals, more drama, lots of drive, and one of my favorite AMV openings, a roll call that taps into the series' emphasis on archetypes. Almost a dance video; it's very high-energy. I wouldn't have expected a treatment like this for a relatively relaxed-pace film.
TTSM compounds the already odd imagery of the movie to create a disorienting, dreamlike effect, and (as explained in the video info) also sets up a constructed reality that is much more fatalistic than that of the movie itself. And of course the music is gorgeous. Simply put, it's beautifully done. You really have to see this if you haven't yet.
Though Evanescence videos have a bad reputation, you have to put that aside for this. Utena and Anthy's story is very bleak by the end of the series, and this is a powerful statement of it. Anthy's verse still gives me chills, and I've seen this dozens of times. It combines the series and movie in a way I've never seen before or since and, as a bonus, does so with little more than very fast cuts, if I'm not mistaken. It draws parallels between the images that you probably didn't even realize were there; it's very striking and really accentuates the best imagery of both titles. Very, very spoilery, but otherwise another must-see.
Recent, but I think it'll hold up. A profile of a very difficult character to pin down, a highly unsympathetic narrator, not a whole lot of screen time - and you'd never know it, watching this. I'm impressed that this could even be made, let alone made so well. Akio is the snake-in-the-grass kind of antagonist, slithering right up with evil intent that nobody sees until it's too late, and this hits that spot-on. It also takes a very harsh view of the hero, which is unusual, though necessary considering the narrator. Good for fans of interpersonal drama; it suggests lots of further intrigue without being too vague or giving too much away.
This was the first AMV i saw probably over a year ago from another site. I Fell in love with it-> i imediately started reading the manga after seeing the movie... and got the song Don't think of me by dido.
The music video is really dramatic. It doesn't really follow the storyline of Fushigi Yuugi, but it is a great seller. The lyrics go directly with the video and one can see that every image is carefully planned out and put together.
If you don't watch this video, you're are missing out big time! This is very, very, very good! And it's her first amv! It's so good! The unique combination of song and anime is so weird it makes it good! Go get it now and don't forget to leave an opinion!
Kusoyaro's Sappy Self-Indulgence to Elephant Love Medley from Moulin Rouge is one of my favorite AMVs. It uses mostly shoujo anime and it definitely contains shoujo themes. It's a video that certainly has plenty of comedic value, but I find it more charming and heartwarming than anything else.
