It also felt like people where purposely submitting comedy videos to upbeat (*cough* and romance *cough*) to get a better chance of winning, to the point that comedy would have actually been weaker than upbeat if it wasn't for the crapy and I'm available ladies ones.
Hey now. If real romance weren't ever fun, or god forbid funny, by golly it would be boring and down-right awkward. It's not "Sentimental Romance." It's Romantic AMVs or Sentimental AMVs.
And if upbeat videos weren't amusing at times, you'd only have a bunch of Cartoon Heros dancing a Kaliedo Star rendition of Perfect Blue while trailing rainbows or other fruit snacks. After all, we all just want to be Happy Boys and Happy Girls, don't we?
There's nothing wrong with submitting cross-genre videos to the best of my knowledge. I mean, really, just about every video had some degree of cross over.
"Where the Sidewalk Ends" - Romantic Upbeat
"Ves-ka" - Dramatic Action
"Shesshoumaru champloo" - Action Comedic
"Ouran: Love! Angst! Crack" - Romantic Upbeat
"I'm Available, Ladies" - Romantic Dramatic Comedic
Haven't your past few videos really
been Dramatic Action, besides your ENOZ video, which I thought was Dramatic Upbeat (what? yes.), yet you marked it as Romantic.
Now, how is that any different than what Captain DWChang or Mr. ForeverZero did?
I've been trying to negotiate, and I've been failing, with AMV Contest persons to change the AMV Categories. Maybe in a few years, there will be some changes. Hmm. Hmmmmm...
By the way, I love AuN Studio AMVs.
