When it comes to my favorite music I don't have any particular style or artist I prefer, however the punk-rock band Green Day has always been a favorite of mine and with their "21st Century Breakdown" album I thought it would be worth making an AMV with their sound. One day I heard the song "21 Guns" on the radio and immediately knew that it would make a great AMV project, and surprisingly I came up with the most appropriate anime to compliment it: GunBuster. If you haven't seen the 6-episode anime show then why are you still reading this?!? Go out and see it any way you can! It's one of the most amzing and well-written shows out there.
But with that said, this AMV does have a lot of spoilers. I tried to show just enough footage to make my points, and the clips match up well with the song lyrics, but I kind of needed to throw in some spoilers regardless. Still, this version has no subtitles, and especially during the climax I think I retained the most talked about moment in the whole show. Therefore, whether you've seen the show or not, you ought to be able to enjoy this heartfelt adventure story with a great song in the mix.
