Although... it really sucks that three of the videos in Drama were Madoka (two of which were instrumental! o.O). I sorta felt like if those AMVs were shown individually, they probably would have gotten the attention they deserved. Its just hard to stand out when there are more Madoka References than there were categories. Especially when the series is only 13 episodes... not much room to make unique scene choices.
The surprise hit this year IMO was Cardcaptor Sakura. Three references to her... with all three references winning some sort of award. (Matchmaker, Fanserviceables, and Starcraft). Its just like what was said in Iron Editor this year :-p Even the oldest of animes can be seen in a new light... years after they are made.
Thats one of the reasons why I wanted to enter something else besides my Madoka- Caged video. Had a feeling there was going to be some madoka..D: Wanted to finish my new Fairy Tail video, but was to lazy. =p
Glad I made it to the finals though. :3
Next year I'm going to try for upbeat again like last year most likely.
wait The Ballad of a Dog won and not Magic eye? o-o
Well it was a neat video too. Grats to the winners!
