So after winning Best of Show at Ohayocon 2010 just a few months ago, I've been thinking of a lot of things. My first thought was: would this be a good time to retire from AMV's? I mean, I've won the top-prize at my home town anime convention; maybe it's best to leave while I'm on top. But then I thought of how much fun I've had making these videos. So instead of hanging up my guns, I've decided to treat you all with another AMV (and more to come later!)
"Repo Men" was a fun movie in a dark-comedy way. I mean, tracking down people, mostly killing them, and all for the sake of repossessing their artificial organs? How screwed up is that?!? But I liked the movie and the trailer was pretty of cool, so I decided to use it.
Of course there aren't many anime titles out there with such a plot description, but with the futuristic setting and the buddy-film quality, "Outlaw Star" fit the bill. Think about it: two friends who work together as a team taking jobs as they come, a horde of bad-guys coming after them, and then a strange-but-beautiful romance (Gene and Melfina) all building up to a climactic battle with daggers. It sounds like a winning combination to me.
