This video best demonstrates all characteristics that go into making an excellent anime music video. The editor has gone out of his or her way to create a video that both captures and moves the audience, giving them a deeper appreciation for anime, AMVs, and the entire creative process.
And it really has nothing to do with them being my roommates. It's just the perfect combination of really clever and tight editing and ridiculously fun/infectious song. The video has barely any effects whatsoever. Just straight cuts and fades throughout, and it manages to keep me interested for the full 5+ minute duration. I friggin love it.
