  • Profile: Basically, how this began, was when I was young and before even the first new episodes aired on television I didn't know anything about Trunks until a friend of mine told me. Son of Bulma and Vegeta. I couldn't believe it at first, sorta doubt it.

    But soon I saw proof, a picture/sticker of Trunks, it was Future Trunks. And he did looked pretty kickass. And from then on, I liked him most, and that's how I grew up liking DBZ with a passion. By now I know in some ways it's overrated and I can see why nobody likes it, I admit myself DBZ isn't better than all anime but still a lot better than some. Dragonball was most original, DBZ was good up to about Cell Saga, and GT I want nothing related to.

    It wasn't much later until I found lots and lots and lots of websites on DBZ thanks to my friends, my most favorite was Temple O' Trunks back 6 years ago, since it had about everything I ever wanted and needed. And for the first time there I actually saw a music video based on DBZ itself, heh it was the History Of Trunks movie with the song Bye Bye Bye, first original edit version. If I were to see it now, it'll be very bad quality, not much a good video and very bad. But back then since I was kinda young, first time seeing it, it was gold in my eyes.

    From then on I continued watching AMV's, searching websites, chatting, and much more. Now finally, I'm beginning to make AMV's of my own.

    Actually I just began making AMV's just a few weeks ago, after my friend kAzAmA GoTeN began making his own just a few months before. You may know of him from the few videos he also has up here. Anyway I gotta say honestly that I'm pretty impressed and like how my first few videos are turning out, I mostly make vids of where I wanna prove a point of, what nobody ever thought of, or tributes to AMV's I've seen a long while back and never got to see again. I usually use instrumental songs sometimes, I don't just use random songs and put it with DBZ just because I like the song otherwise it makes no sense to the video thus NOT making a good AMV. Like fanbase videos. I don't really have much to say about myself but, just watch my videos, leave opinions behind it'll be sorta grateful to leave tips and such, and just the support of you watching them is highly appreciated. Thank you for your time people.

    Update: New Video! Yeah, a miracle. It's not quite an AMV but it's a music video nonetheless, please enjoy my very first and new Non-Anime Music Video Boys In The Hood. The source footage is The Boondocks, there are few decently good Boondocks videos out in the net so I figure this may set the standards. I dished this out just in time for the second season premiere on Adult Swim October 8th, so what better way to pay tribute than to make a video.

    In Other News: With the new edition of my music video, I will hopefully get started on another more major project.

    Other remakes of my other works would hopefully be up afterwards as well. Enjoy what I have to give so far though.
