Many links are popping up on the Kumoricon forum thread here:

PS to Funky-Kun: Your AMV ran first in the first category. Kumoricon was almost 2x the attendance this year compared to last. That means that there were many anime fans who had NEVER seen an AMV contest run before. Your AMV, 'No Fate' soon held the 1000+ audience in silence.
Then: the last scene of the train running by at full speed - and cut to black.
At that moment, one woman's voice said 'That SUCKS!' (meaning the sad storyline, of course....)
A small moment of nervous laughter followed.

I later met that person by accident elsewhere at the con. I was telling someone else about the lone voice in the silence, and she introduced herself and said 'I didn't think that EVERYONE heard that...'

Anyways - well done!

That made me laugh almost as hard as the "who needs a king" amv. Made my day. :lol:
I love to wear absurd and totally impractical garments. What's more, I derive great pleasure from spending time with women for no apparent reason.

Yeah, people don't seem to like bad endings. Still, that was the point of the video, the title says it all. :P

All Prizes en-route!

Postby Geirr » Mon Sep 08, 2008 9:24 pm

Packages for all category and prize winners not present at the con have been mailed and are in transit. Some may arrive today or any time up to around 20-Sep-08. Please PM me if you are a prize winner and *nothing happens* between now and then...

Next, I've gotten several messages and personal communications that Kumoricon attendees REALLY enjoyed this year's contest, and as I have responded to them, the credit really belongs to all of you who submitted.

Have a good year everyone, and I hope to hear from you all again .. sometime early next summer ... (?)
