This was an awesome amv. Its Truly entertaining. So much is going on at the same time that I found myself saying "Woah!, what was that? OH MY GOD, I think I just missed something. Wait....What? OH Man, did I just see that?" I don't think I have to tell you just how AMAZING this amv is. Its obvious that you really put a piece of you heart and soul into it. Just looking at the pictures that you uploaded of your project file is enough to make me want to cry.

The only thing that I can say is that at points, it was a little hard to follow this amv. This amv really has a unique way of jerking you back and forth though all 70+ anime you used in the video. I'm not really saying that this is a bad thing, it just has a tendency to cause my brain to overload LOL.
But seriously, this is a 5/5 star amv. And since it is so much higher than my current skill level, I don't think that I can offer you any advice to improve it. But something definitely feels missing from your amv. I can't put my finger on it, but if you can fix it, I think that you can make this video into one of those few amvs that I feel deserves a 6/5

Okay, I am really torn. I watched it at least five times to try and like it (like it happened with AotO after i watched it about three times, it stopped being seizure-inducing).

On one hand, we have lots of great masking here, lots of effort, quality (especially after fixing the AR) and movement.

On the other hand, it's clearly oversynced (the sync doesn't fit at times. You can't deceive me by "throwing in so much stuff that it has to be synced". It IS out of sync at times.), and the pace is... constant, which is its main flaw (see recent Bakadance to see a nice work with pacing). You can't make 4 minutes full time action vid and think it'll keep attention.

Well, you can. It's called AotO. But that one has lyrics sync and no (unfitting, IMO) fanservice.

Don't takeme bad, I REALLY think that it's a solid piece of work and I REALLY see that it must've taken ages, but it's just... bland. Empty, with a bad motion/pacing.

3/5, mainly for the effort.

Sorry again.

Mmm... yeah, I do somewhat agree with Nya-chan. Top scores for effort, but as for an actual direction, I can't say I found one. Opinion time.

I liked it! :) The effects were striking, and it all fitted together nicely. I didn't like the writing on the screen at about 0.40, though. Also had no idea what was happening. I assume there was no lyric sync. Think the "smash" effect was used too much (1.23) and the 4:3 aspect ratio looked weird at 1.25.

But overall, there was good continuity and it was enjoyable. :)

EDIT: whoops, reading other replies and I realised I saw the LOCAL version. Please ask the mods to delete it? (put in a request to have the video deleted, and give details. Hopefully they'll allow you to reupload. Happened to me before. )

I was honestly blown away by this. Course, what's in this vid vastly exceeds anything I can hope to do =P. If I had to nitpick though, 1:23 - 1:26 seemed..."off" to me.

In all, I thought it was an amazing vid...
Mindless, random fun isn't always a bad thing :up:
