I tried to pay attention & fix every typo I could find. *hides*
OK KIM, go finish what you started 8D *nudges*Team Psundercyan
Imo Madoka is one of the toughest animes to edit with. It has a huge variety of scenes, which is one of the reasons why it's so hard to get it right. The flow, sync, emotion & scene selection are top notch in some parts but there are also certain parts which could be improved & don't have these qualities. I also feel like you could've shown the different characters more. It's mainly a Madoka x Homura video with occasional appearances of the other three girls. It would've been better to show the five girls equally or make it solely a Madoka x Homura video. But all in all I think you did a pretty solid work (it's a great collab & you should also be proud of yourselves!) and I couldn't tell your parts apart. Felt like it was edited by one person only :3
Well this song definitely suits Vincent. The line "Where is my mind?" was portrayed exceptionally well throughout the video. Your story telling was clear in my opinion (having played the game might have helped) & I hope it was clear to others as well. I noticed those 2D scenes you used btw and I thought we weren't allowed to use any 2D scenes. But idk.. Maybe a few won't hurt, right? I know the very end wouldn't have been able to express with game footage only so yeah. OH and I loved the relaxed atmosphere your video had! GJ :3
This video starts out great. Some parts are just perfect & I think you found just the right scenes there. But it falls to a lipsync video towards the end. Don't get me wrong, e.g. the beginning is absolutely amazing & the part right before the chorus but maybe the anime turned out to be a mismatch or maybe you didn't have enough time in the end or? Some, if not all of us, were pretty busy during the final round after all.
I'm glad you were ambitious and wanted to tame the Skittles Beast, though. With a little bit of time & skittles effects this would've been awesome. It's still one of my favs of the round.¿¡ Dondé esta la baguette ?!
Ungh this vid contains all of my feels ;_; *sobs* And the ending kills me. Hard to give any feedback when I'm like this but I shall try >.<''
The editing, font, flow... Everything fits well together. It's kind of a simple video which has the power to move people. The topics, e.g. her death, the pop duo etc. were portrayed well that it's almost cruel. Not much to say about it than well done, Mims! I'm proud you finished a video >:D I really enjoyed it.
You're one of my new fav editors, Raitei. Your editing & scene selection are once again superb but I'm not sure if I get the story of this video. The main guy drinks some sort of interesting liquid and then he either starts trippin' because he took drugs in a liquid form or has some sort of realization about mankind & the universe. That's how I interpreted it. Song choice is definitely great; it has this psych feel to it. Love how you divided live action & anime into sections. I usually prefer mixes instead of sections but they were better for your concept & for the song. GJ Raitei, it's one of my favs!
Shalyes is one of my new fav editors >w< *huggles* Absolutely loved your video! My fav again! (Told ya guys I had tons of them.. Please bare with me. There's more to come) It's a great crossover, Taiga & the guy were a great choice since the art is similar and they go well together. But 1) I get the Black & white memory section but imo it could've been slightly shorter or taken out completely. Showing them having fun together would've worked better here. 2) .... I'm sorry to point this out but I see it as a romance edit ;_;'' Maybe it's because of the song & the kiss at the end. Ofc fun can have kisses and all those lovey dovey moments & it does start out as a fun edit. Maybe it's also because I have seen this type of videos to be categorized as romance edits before so it affects me. You're all free to disagree with me, though. These are all personal opinions Nevertheless great job!Team Chicken Cult
Oblivious Futon-Dwelling Stargazer
Yaah once again one of my favs xD It brought back so many memories oh goodness. Marie, I absolutely love your editing. You've been my inspiration ever since I started editing. The song fits Denpa Onna pretty darn well, the chorus especially. Smart anime choice The video has a solid story & manages to follow it till the end. There were a few scenes which I thought were a mismatch as far as the song goes but everything else was top notch to me. Seems to me like you had a good idea & you executed it well. Love the outcome.
I personally think it was ingenious to use High School Musical and Kuroko. The song has a few nice sound effects which acts in for for the game aspect. It feels like I'm in an actual game haha. I really need to finish KnK cuz the ending might've spoiled some of it 8D My fault for not watching it sooner, though.
There are parts when the live action doesn't transition well with the anime but e.g. the transition at 2:19 is perfect. More of those please I also like how you followed the orig structure of the HSM song. A few parts could have been worked on slightly some more but I do love it as it is ;w; aaand here's once again one of my favs haha. Oh and once again I couldn't tell your parts apart. That's pretty nice blending, girls
An immediate fav! Flow, story, editing & emotion are really good in this one! I love how you used taco buffet with a guy song =D Honestly I can't point out much of this video. BUT If I have to nitpick about something, it'd be the fade-outs, some of the hard cuts & dynamic. There are parts where a fade-out is too fast, sync gets interrupted and therefore some parts feel a little choppy. But that's honestly not a big issue at all & it's easily fixed. I also feel like you could've started the video much slower & build it up towards the end. Yue pointed out how my collab with Toya on R2 didn't have much dynamic so I've been paying a lot of attention to it on this round (or at least tried lol xD). But it's a favourite of mine and you made me want to watch Utena. I seriously need to do that once of these day ;__;'' (( COULD SOMEONE PLEASE WATCH IT WITH ME? lol so many series & anime to watch. )) So sad the song's short ;w; That epic Utena edit needs moar. MOAR *rawrs*(╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻(Your group has the most unique song choices by far.)
Manic Undead Fanservice Slaughter (feat. Tits McGee)
Now it's time to settle the score Well this is definitely a manic undead fanservice slaughter but we finally got tits and panties for this round so no one's allowed to complain. That's definitely the smooth & slick editing à la Todd that we're used to. Some of the syncing is definitely spot on and I feel like I can learn from that. I did wish to see more ordinary scenes such as those you had at the beginning of the video. But if your purpose was to produce fanservice salughter video, you did really well. This game's also caught my interest & I kinda want to play it even though this is definitely not my cup of tea xD
This One Counts Double
FAV FAV FAV! It has "favorite" written all over it lol. Ok who used that sex scene, The Breakfast Club & a dancing bunny? I demand names
You guys made one epic MEP. Be proud of yourselves The person who suggested this song is the mad chemist here hahah. Idk if I have anything to nitpick. I wish the live action would've been mixed more instead of clear sections but ofc it gives a lot of structure to the video. The only part that stood out is pokemon since the art is so different from others (but don't get me wrong, I was happy you included pokemon since it's one of my absolute fav animes & I still watch it haha =D). Idk why everything else blended well together. But yeah. Personal onions again. Haha this fucking best song ever is stuck in my head... Oh did I mention the pwning lipsync and comedy being strong in this one? LAUGHS WERE HAD! Seriously, thank you guys
... ;-; *sniffs*Team Unresponsive
.. *sighs* I wrote a long comments to you & Aeon but I got logged out and I'm frigging tired lol xD So I'm gonna keep it simple & short.
Khoa & Phlash, I loved your collab. You did a neat job editingwise but seems like all of the effects are at the beginning of the video. I didn't expect nothing else since your ae skills are bomb, Khoa. But now there's a big difference between your & Phlash's parts. You could've toned down on the effect department, helped Phlash with effects or done them for him. It's still a collab if you had been in charge of the effects. But this went straight into my favs :3 Nice job, guys!
Phenomenon (Open Your Moe)
Slimed, you surprised me every round. You've been consistent throughout the competition imo. Here's an example of your solid work once again. The only thing that didn't quite fit was the stabbing scene from Haruhi. But if you were satisfied with it and it had a purpose, it's fine really =) Extraordinary song combined with moe is like breathing fresh air.
Find Our Way
Well your vid definitely found it's way to my favs And yay for a mix! FINALLY. TY, KIM >.< I love how there're no clear sections for anime & live action. It all still fits & flows without those. Some transitions were ingenious but I gotta admit that there are a couple of parts where the transitions aren't glorious (do they have to be, though? :3) but overall you did a pretty darn good job, Kim. The video probably follows the plot line of the music video, right? Ah the video is dreamy, though ;w; -sobs-Æon Studios
Haha the idea is brilliant :'D The title, execution, effects, editing.. Well done! I love how you even did similar credits. Paura executed some parts better than you did but then again you executed some parts better than Paura. I'd really love to see a longer version of this. Maybe one day. And this's one of my favs _yet again lol_
And here comes Diego with his slick effects. Gotta love them & your song choice. Aw man what can I say here? I absolutely love Kuroko & I think your did fantastic job editing wise. Great that you had both the regular scenes & the game scenes but I wished you would've mixed them even more together. I know the old fashioned, structured split is a safe choice since it's guaranteed to work and mixing it more is always riskier. That's the only thing I'm going to nitpick. I thought everything else was great. GJ Diego!
Good luck with JE ~! I'm looking forward to seeing the final result <:Team Mutiny
Your sync is frigging amazing o.o *jaw drops* Just look at that flow. I love how you didn't hurry & took your time with everything. Now your video has a certain atmosphere thanks to that. But since the title is bromance, I'm not sure I get the fighting scenes. 1:38-2:00 fit perfectly, though. Btw it's a talent to make editing seem as effortless as you did. Good job
2nd & 3rd
I swear to god I had this song stuck in my head the whole day when I first saw it LOL xD Very enjoyable & couldn't really tell your parts apart at all. Guys seriously! You've got to be proud of your collab since this kicks some butt ;D YAY for the mix up! I thought the transitions were awesome and executed really well. Some of your live action footage doesn't have the best quality but I don't expect you to find an HD version of the George Bush clip. & hey, some of my FF scenes are upscaled to HD so oh wells ;D We definitely did get some anime idiots here. Laughs were had (once again)
kk Nayton. INSTANT FAV! You did a splendid job. I'm glad you changed your plans since now everything works in your favour. It seems like you've done many crossovers before even though I know that's not the case. It means how you really put the effort into it & manged to pull it off. I do think there are a couple of parts, which are over synced. I also noticed a TV logo, which sneakily got pass you. (( I have serious issues with TV logos TwT'' )). You did a great crossover nevertheless. I love it to pieces
Oh goodness those piano scenes are gorgeous Says a former pianist *cough* I've wanted to edit to this song the longest I can remember. You captured the moment well and adding those voice overs was a smart move. Oh god the ending scared me D8 Lol I'm not a fan of blood... Okay umm.. I thought some of the voice overs were a mismatch scene wise. Like they were telling a separate story while your scenes & music were telling another. But finding the right voice overs is a tough job. You wouldn't believe how many times I changed mine and what a pain in the butt it was to actually find them *shakes fist* Hmm.. Also your text stands out a little too much. But what does the text matter? Does the font, font-size, spacing, alignment, does any of those matter? I didn't care much about it before but it all changed once I studied typography. The worst decision I've ever made lol xD Honestly the text isn't a big issue. It would've only given a finishing touch to your AMV and if you don't know much about fonts & all, someone could've helped you with that. I could've helped you if I had known. But at the end of the day it comes down to your preferences. If you like it as it is, that's what matters imo :3 I really enjoyed this Eva AMV. Well done =)
