AMV Contest Winner "Ohayocon 2010" for Best of Show
You know, I love Quentin Tarantino’s movies; so much that I’ve already made two other AMV’s for his work. So why not a third, and even one about a war movie too? Inglourious Basterds will be a fun movie, so when looking at an anime to use I knew it needed Nazi influence…which I found out is disturbingly abundant in anime. Anyhoo, Hellsing Ultimate seemed to be an easy choice, but it was TOO easy. Therefore, I knew this AMV needed some kind of gag to exaggerate the point.
What about Azumanga Daioh? Oh sure: cute high-school girls take on the entire Nazi army. F*****’ A! I just had to remember that they should all stay inside the classroom and be wearing the same uniforms (BTW, did you notice that every once in a while their uniforms switch between Pink and Blue?) and also only the same group of girls could be in the same scene. It was a painstaking editing process, but it all came out surprisingly clean and believable. Chiyo-chan plays Brad Pitt and Miss Yukari is the squad leader. Oh, who else could play Hitler? How about Mr. Kimura!!! (I got the little mustache from Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie)
